I don’t know how many books you have to narrate to be “professional,” but this marks my third completed book, so I think I can say I’m at least committed. As always, the content is all the author’s, I’m just the narrator & producer of the audio version. I will say that as somebody who hasn’t had occasion to learn a lot about the more obscure biblical texts, I found this interesting in several ways. I’m still a bit nervous about trying to narrate fiction as the prospect of doing too many voices makes me anxious, but I’m definitely getting more comfortable with the whole system. I can also say that a couple improvements to my studio have made the sound quality on this one the best yet. I’m still far from having a full-scale recording/producing rig, but I’m hoping if I can get several more of these making earnings simultaneously that I may be able to really up the game. Time to get some more auditions out.

Publisher’s Summary

Evil walked the earth when angels fell. Evil stalks us now in disembodied spirits; immortal wraiths once clothed in flesh when angel and women bred; spirits released from their fleshly prisons when their bodies were destroyed for drinking the blood of men.

Evil also lives inside of the common man; set free when pride kills reason and eats integrity whole. There is evil that entraps us and evil that tugs from within. But neither have control until we choose to relent. Evil is a choice of action, of thoughts entertained too long, of arrogance pushing aside the last vestiges of compassion. Evil resides within the problem of choice.

What is evil? Could it be as simple as pernicious selfishness? Could it be the drive for immediate gratification without regard for others? Man’s life is limited; 100 years or less. But, the souls of angel and watcher are eternal. Consider how much evil can be wrought through the millennia of immediate gratification on an eternal scale.

By contrasting and comparing ancient texts such as Enoch, Jasher, Jubilees, the Bible, and various others containing stories of the creation of angels, demons, and man, a full and panoramic history of evil is produced. In this history the startling revelation of the descent of man and angels and the evolution of evil on earth is clearly revealed.
