Poor Angela is going through a rough time since breaking up with her boyfriend. Channel surfing while she wonders how her life turned into its current mess, her attention is grabbed by an infomercial. What's for sale? Vengilixer. The price? Your soul. What can be more startling than that? The announcer answers her question directly and begins a conversation with her.
Angela discovers two things, she's not entirely human and the announcer is a demon who wants to help her realize her full potential. And this is where I must stop or I'll give everything away. There is an element of humor in this story that I appreciate. Angela's wide-eyed, near innocent disbelief wars with her desire to get even with her ex. Daryl (the friendly and oh-so-helpful demon) is the epitome of the smooth talking salesman.
In spite of the demon and Angela's growing desire to get even, I found this to be a fairly lighthearted story, though with a couple of definite caveat twists at the end. Regardless whether you want something to shake your head at or you're feeling a bit vengeful, I think you'll enjoy this short story. Both well written and well edited. I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 4 stars
