The audio version of one of my all-time favorites. ( )

A relatively interesting book about a group of teenagers and the spiritual battle that is wages over theirs souls. Lots of good points are made in this book in how easy it is to fall prey to evil without even realizing it.

On the flip side, I felt the book was a bit too preachy, even for Christian fiction. I love a good religious discussion but I have never liked being talked AT. And I feel that is what this book does. While parts can be an eye opener for certain life aspects it came across as nagging especially when it comes to Rob's character. Still, it is a thought provoking book.

The chapters are short and each one includes a letter correspondence from a a demon. at first the letters were amusing and even insightful but about halfway through I just started to half-skim over them and just read the actual chapters. They became way to repetitious.

The ending was unexpected and not sure I liked it. The Characters varied. Rob came across as a Bible-thumper, which is something even as a Christian I do not like. Ian is more a side character until the end so when his story becomes vital I just could not relate. Jillian, Daniel and Brittany were okay but none of the characters really jumped out at me.

The messages the book conveyed were good and the style was interesting. Even though I do not see demons writing letters to each other, the plotting they were at felt very real. It really makes you think what is going on around us that we don't see.

**I received this book in exchange for a fair, honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are strictly my own.** ( )

Cross C.S. Lewis’s Screwtape Letters with a modern-day, very American, Christian high-school romantic read and you’ll have the flavor of the Ishbane Conspiracy. Ishbane, or Prince Ishbane, is a demon, corresponding with lesser demons who hope to control the destinies of four young American adults. High-schoolers might be tempted with tarot cards, family rebellion, sexual attraction and more. Younger siblings could be tempted to read the evil Harry Potter books or play D&D. And wiser Christian friends might argue that the world was surely made in six sets of twenty four hours because the Bible tells them so.

Told in alternating chapters of modern teen fiction and demon-mail, the story centers on a recent convert whose father has died, and a former gang-member who’s moved with his family to Portland to avoid his LA past. School libraries eagerly accept New Age books, but reject the Bible. Meanwhile students play with Ouija boards, drink to excess, take risks with drugs, and wonder why their friends seem always to die. But it all has a very one-time one-place feel. The letters deal with specific themes and lack the timeless relevance of their predecessors. These Christians adhere to a particularly American brand of faith. And sweeping denunciations of Harry Potter, evolution and more might alienate a significant part of the intended audience. That said, there are some very well-dictated examples of Christian witness which, coupled with a deeply emotional ending, make for a worthwhile read. It’s not C.S. Lewis, and it’s not Robin Jones Gunn, but it’s a well-imagined concept and an interesting tale.

Disclosure: Blogging for Books provided this book to me for free in exchange for an honest review. ( )

A modern day Screwtape. It's a little long for that style of writing. I never finished it if that means anything. I should probably give it a second chance. ( )
