Necessary Evil and the Greater Good by Adam Ingle Adam Ingle has an extraordinary imagination and an ability to string words together to tell an epic-scaled tale. For this to be his first book, I am properly impressed. It’s unique, creative, and thought provoking. There are horrifying as well as comic events all woven expertly together. Mestoph, son of Mephistopheles, didn’t have the hate, anger, and rage his father had. That’s not to say he wasn’t a trouble maker by any means. He and his Angelic best friend Leviticus, an angel with a desk job, are bored waiting for the apocalypse to start. They were known to concoct wild plans to cause enough chaos to start the apocalypse, since it was way overdue. Most of their plans were exposed and stopped before any real trouble started. However, this one is a little different. It involves two under-the-radar humans, who in fact are destined to be together. Marcus barely has the nerve to speak to Stephanie, the barista at a coffee shop, where he orders coffee every working morning on the way to work. Stephanie has started to have dreams, which usually involve her dead grandmother, and they have turned frightening lately. With some fast talking and not quite truths Mestoph and Leviticus get Marcus and Stephanie to follow them on their misadventure around the globe. Nothing goes the way it was meant to and there are surprises around every corner. With a whole cast of interesting characters, the plot is fast moving and extraordinarily unique. There are a number of twists and turns throughout the story, but I enjoyed the humorous ones in the last chapters the best. FYI: Adult language, several F-bombs are dropped. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog.

I was immediately drawn into this story. Adam is a talented story teller and writer. I have known him for years, and was able to catch onto the personal references. Sir Reginald is one of my favorite characters, and I look forward to the next novel. I never would have thought to put Heaven, Hell and Norse Mythology together.. Very Inventive.. Thanks Adam for sharing your imagination with us all.
