The Devil in Disguise
Ever since he survived a suicide attempt, New York artist Stan Foster has not been himself. Plagued by amnesia and a head full of visions of death and destruction that fuel his ever-more disturbing work, he claws his way through a life he doesn’t recognize in search of his true identity. What he finds leads him to believe he is Satan, spit out from the bowels of hell to live among the mortal inhabitants of earth. Is he delusional, or is there truth behind this troubling revelation?
One woman can help him find out. Enter Abigail: lapsed Catholic, lonely city dweller, and psychiatrist with a heart of gold. Meeting Stan makes her question everything she’s believed about faith and humanity for so long, but she must overcome her own troubled background to offer him the redemption he needs—and ultimately wants.
What did I think?
It took me a little while to get really stuck in to Stan The Awakening, but once I did there was no keeping me from reading it! This is Richard Wold’s first novel and he has done such a brilliant job with it. It really is a story line like no other and it is incredible that Wold has such a interesting imagination. You can definitely tell that a lot of planning and thought went in to this book.
Stan the Awakening ended on such a cliffhanger that I cannot wait to read the follow up! Wold has really ensured that there is a huge anticipation and excitement for the next book. I felt like the lead up to the end of the book made sure that the ending was a done deal, but in the very last sentence of the book, Wold manages to grip you tight enough to want to read the follow on!
I would urge anyone to give Stan The Awakening a go. It didn’t grip me at first, but power through it and you will soon be hooked like me!
