 My Review:
Logic of Demons: The Quest for Nadine’s Soul is written from Devin’s point of view. Devin is the protagonist of the novel, and the story begins with his pregnant wife having just been raped and murdered. Holding on to the memories he shared and the thoughts of what his wife had to endure the last few moments of her life, Devin is faced with a dilemma. He can choose to let it go, or get revenge. His concerned father-in-law begs Devin not to do anything irrational, but having his thoughts filled with the need for revenge, he does not listen. Devin finally gives in to his violent thoughts and brutally beats his wife’s murderer to death.  Police soon enter the room and open fire at Devin, killing him instantly. Although Devin’s life on earth is over, his journey in the afterlife has only begun.
Devin is now working for “The Company”, in the offices under the earth’s surface. He is given a choice to sell their “formula” or resign from his position. He is promised by “The Boss” and a man named Mr. Templeton that by working for them he will be once again be reunited with his wife, but only after completing one special project. He must find a girl named Nadine, and sell her “The Formula”. Devin soon finds out the importance of Nadine and the consequences of his decision.
Logic of Demons is a very easy and enjoyable read. Despite being an easy read, Logic of Demons is a much deeper novel than one may think at first glance. You will definitely need to keep an open mind when reading Logic of Demons as the novel addresses strong subject matter such as rape, murder, depression, alcoholism, values, genocide, afterlife, and religion (Heaven and Hell). It is evident that H. A. Goodman has definitely invested a lot of time into researching these subjects. Moreover, while reading the novel, you may find yourself going back and forth between the history books and the novel.
H. A. Goodman’s self-published novel Logic of Demons will keep you guessing as to what lies ahead. Through the subjects presented, readers will be able to connect with the characters portrayed in the novel. H. A. Goodman has created a wonderful novel, with an original plot and an unforeseen ending.
I recommend this novel to those who enjoy science-fiction, thrillers and contemporary fantasy.
An Enjoyable Read, Well Written, Recommended
