Repossessed by A.M. Jenkins

Wow! This was an interesting read. I absolutely loved it. The narrator had a hysterical voice full of cynicism and wit. I loved the idea that a demon could possess a human body and actually learn from it. Kiriel, the demon, learned emotions, senses and how to be human. When Kiriel first crossed over to Earth, he was naive and somewhat whimsical. All he wanted to do was to experience physical human senses. The longer he was in Shaun’s body, he began to experience lust, greed, envy, and more than the seven deadly sins. He knew his time on Earth was limited, and soon began to feel the need to leave his mark on the world. This is an human trait that he picked up. All in all the moral to this story is one that runs through many; The Grass is always greener on the otherside and one must always be themselves no matter what the consequences. (In his case, meaning being a creature of hell)

    Jenkins also raises interesting questions about the meaning of sin and the motives of a creator who punishes people for acting according to their nature 🙂
