Jillian Campbell doesn’t believe in God. When local pastor Jim Preston tells Jillian that God has chosen her to join a secret religious organization called the Deiform Fellowship, she dismisses him as a kook. Two days later, Preston is dead, and Jillian stands accused of his murder.
With mounds of evidence condemning her, Jillian expects to spend her life behind bars. Then the Fellowship breaks her out of prison and insists that Preston had told her the truth. If Jillian doesn’t join them, the Fellowship’s enemies will hunt her down and kill her. Desperate to clear her name, Jillian agrees to work with the Fellowship, but only until they’ve unmasked Preston’s killer.
Because of her atheism, Jillian isn’t interested in pledging her life to a religious group. But as the investigation into Preston’s murder progresses, she comes to believe that her life truly is in danger. Jillian must decide whether to remain with the Fellowship and live, or leave it and die.

Have you ever wondered how God keeps the world on track and things going the way He wants them to? What if there was a secret agency like the CIA or FBI only it worked for God? Well, that is what THE DEIFORM FELLOWSHIP ONE: THE ATHIEST tells us, while broaching hidden subjects along the way. In this first story, we are introduced to Jillian, a new candidate for employment with them. The only problem is Jillian is an atheist and she doesn't believe them when they're attempting to recruit her. Like all good flawed characters, Jillian had a traumatic experience which has left her scarred for life and as a result has dramatically influenced the way she lives her adult life. Jillian is a loner who avoids real life and any remote chance of being hurt at all costs. She has just been accused of murdering two people, she was working undercover to convict, and somehow must get her name cleared before she can do anything else. It is the deiform fellowship which helps her clear her name and forces her to take a good look at herself in the process. To me, this story, although mechanically there, was more generalised outline than delineated story. It gave me brief information, but I would have liked to seen more character development, especially with Roberta, Sam, Jillian and her dad etc and more history between the beguilers and deiforms themselves. More information on specific beguilers? Who were they? After all, they have a history just like the rest of us. How did they first start? When did they come into being? What made someone choose to be a beguiler? On the other hand, it did get me to thinking of the Jews at Megiddo and if the outcome does justify getting the job done without regard to how you do it. I wondered whether or not, God would care at how we accomplish things in our lives.
