As One Devil To Another

"As One Devil To Another" by Richard Platt is one of the most interesting books I have read recently. This book tells the story of two devils - Scardagger, who is a new Cadet, and his mentor and uncle, Slashreap. The book is written in a series of letters from Scardagger to Slashreap, directing him in the ways to corrupt and manipulate people. We only see the letters to Slashreap, but can easily infer what Slashreap's letters said based on the responses that Scardagger gives in his. "As One Devil To Another" is interesting as it discusses the ways in which these devils work at separating us from God. It's almost a playbook for the ways that these devils work. This book is written in the same style as classical literature, which does make it slightly harder to read if you aren't used to that particular style, but I really loved it. I think this book was clever, insightful, and original.

FTC DISCLOSURE: I received this book for free from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review. I was not obligated to write a positive review.
