Logic of Demons, a book by H A Goodman | Book review
He is a good disputer, provides true answers concerning the future and gives men the understanding of the voices of various creatures such as birds and dogs as well as of the noise of water.

When answering questions he seems to stand on burning coals. Charun - Etruscan. A pre-Christian demon whose job it was to guard the entrance to the underworld. He is depicted with a hammer and pointed ears, tusks, snakes around his arms, enormous wings and a bluish coloration symbolizing the decay of death.
Holding the rank of Marquis, he is served by 20 legions and also rules over all the spirits of Africa. He appears as a warrior riding a black horse and possesses the abilities of locating lost or hidden treasures, teaching Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric and making a man into a warrior of his own likeness. Corson - Christian. I love the way he was portrayed in the book. The message presented through the book—evil cannot be blamed on an invisible hand as much as on our own actions and we have to learn to take responsibilities for said actions—is a constant through the scenes as the plot progresses.
Goodman showcases universal flaws within religion, culture, and individuals. The message is heartbreaking, inspiring, and bold. One of the aspects I love about the Logic of Demons books is the presentation of Hell as a massive office echoing the craziness of a stock exchange and the mind-numbing boredom that comes with working in one. Also, the fact that demons look and act so human.
The story is engaging from the moment you start reading and is solid. Underneath the power, the time travel, the supernatural characters, is a heartbeat and a story that will stay with you long after you finish. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
