What would you do if Satan confronted you one day?
The Devil's Edge is a sometimes witty, sometimes twisted collection of short stories by author M. L. Barrios that shows Satan doing his best to exact his pound of human flesh from everyday folks just trying to get through life with all their fingers and toes.
Take Allison, ready to jump and end it all, rather than face her problems, but for the dark man, who suddenly appears, turning something like simple suicide into a real mess. Or there's Jeremy, the brilliant and greedy scientist who wants to know it all, literally, and he ends up knowing more than he bargained for, with the help of a dark stranger. And then there is Rex, the skeptical, but ambitious, reporter who doesn't believe in Devils, even when they wear the right costume, but he learns a cautionary tale about humility-the hard way. Each challenges the Great Deceiver and faces his or her own Faustian bargain: some win, some lose, and some lose everything. Written with dark humor and masterful prose, The Devil's Edge is pure entertainment that will keep you thinking while it surprises you with unexpected twists and turns.
