If you were one of the many new fans of Michael Siemsen who discovered his new take on what a Demon is in his book A Warm Place Called Home – A Demon’s Story, you are in for a treat.  A Demon’s Story was just the appetizer for his new book: The Many Live of Samuel Beauchamp.   From the first head spinning paragraph to the last gut-wrenching chapter, you follow the many lives of a demon, as was only hinted at in the Demon’s Story.   Writers seldom manage to keep me challenged and surprised through the entire book, but Michael Siemsen has  managed to keep me on the edge of my seat with each turn of the page.  More than once I have found myself mumbling “No way!” and going back to check a detail, only to find that I missed an important, oblique hint.   (He’s GOOD!)  And, once again, I found my jaw hanging open as the plot thickened and the resolution I thought was evident took a wild right turn (nope, not a left one).   I offer kudos and congratulations to Michael for this masterful work of a new definition of paranormal and demons.

As with all of this authors previous books, I found myself having to go back and reread a previous section over and over. This is a welcome distraction from other books I have recently read, as I cannot simply fly through this and other books by Siemsen. They take thought, and an enjoyable effort to comprehend an unusual demon/daimon theme that is a departure from other books of the same recently popular subject. I read the book, then all of a sudden, it was over. Abuptly over, even though I had to go back many times in order to continue with the next. It ended way to fast and now I must wait for another. In the mean time, I look forward to rereading this book and A Warm Place To Call Home, as I am sure I will pick up on other nuances I missed the first time though. Well done!

This book......Where do I begin? I'm not sure how many of you know, but I'm kind of a big Michael Siemsen fan (and stalker). I have read all of his stuff and I have enjoyed it. I am in love with his demon Frederick (and no that is not a dirty joke!) and can't wait to read more about Matthew Turner. I was VERY excited about reading Samuel and did my fair share of heckling him to get it. Now that I have read it, I'm sad. But in a good way. I love Frederick the demon. He is funny as hell, witty, ornery, has a wicked sense of humor and is fairly carefree. He's the "fun" one. Samuel is the male best friend you love (but not love THAT way) that you want great things to happen to and for him to have his happy ending, but he just keeps getting dumped on. He's like your favorite distant cousin, who is pathetic, has no nerve and gets walked all over and you just want to scream at him to stop being a wuss and stand up for himself. I love him, but in a different way. Make sense? It wasn't like that in the beginning. I wasn't sure how to feel about Samuel. I was indifferent to him and I wasn't sure how this was all going to play out. It wasn't until the latter 3rd of the book that I realized that I did actually like him and that I cared about what happened to him. I "got" him. I knew where he was coming from (literally and figuratively) and I felt a connection to him. I was truly heartbroken for him when he was trampled on and pissed off when someone was cruel. There aren't many funny or lighthearted parts like in Frederick. There may only be one or two things that make you chuckle. This book is definitely darker than A Warm Place to Call Home (a demon's story). But don't let that be a turn off. It is definitely a heartbreaking book, with drama, drama, and more drama. However, it does have a happy ending (if that stuff is important to you). This book is full of surprises that even I, a Michael Siemsen aficionado (aka stalker) did not see coming. I did not have this book figured out until it was revealed to me. THAT is a tell-tale sign of a good book in my opinion. Michael Siemsen did this in the Frederick book and he was able to do it again this time with Samuel. And THAT is why I have read everything he's written and will continue to read anything that he writes. As long as he is able to keep surprising ME then he's going to have a lifelong reader (stalker). **P.S. Mr. Siemsen and I kid about the stalking thing. It is not intended to be taken literally in that creepy, peeking through the curtains and digging through the garbage kind of stalking. It is, in his words, "benevolent stalking." ***P.P.S - I was part of the beta reading group that Michael Siemsen uses before his books get published and received an unedited copy of the book for review purposes.

There were many twists and turns in this book about a boy who sees and lives with demons in his life while trying to actually have a normal life. I loved it and cannot wait to read more from Michael Siemsen. Great read and very fresh ideas.

***GoodReads First Reads Giveaway*** This book is how books are supposed to be written. It was smart, witty, suspenseful and overall great. I must say its been awhile that I have enjoyed a book that wasn't a romance per se, quite this much. It was a novel idea, which the writer executed perfectly.
