Book Description

Ever wonder what you would do if you were suddenly granted ultimate power? Would you control people you don't know? Or would you alter the known world with this divine might? Here's the catch... what if this power wasn't exactly 'good' in nature?

William is a bitter, unexciting guy transformed into a mindless drone by years of retail work... that is, until he begins hearing an otherworldly voice in his brain. Join him on a twisted tale of raunchy fun as this demonic voice commands William to embrace his dark side and work towards something greater than he'd ever imagined.

5.0 out of 5 stars I would like to go to Vegas with Asmodeus January 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Sadly we are raised and socialized with the belief that demonic possession is a terrorizing thought. Nathan Barnes sets us straight in this captivating story of naughtiness and hilarity. From the very first sentence to the very last paragraph we are delightfully charmed by the voice of Asmodeus, a demon who is unlike any depicted before. The frolicking mayhem that ensues everywhere he and his host go entertain the imagination to no end.

To best describe Asmodeus would be to say that he is an overblown, Freudian ego gone berserk. Whatever impulsive, male desiring thought flits through his demonic brain he almost certainly acts upon. The ensuing sexual and sadistic sprees the two go on are so thoroughly enjoyable I can only hope there is a sequel.

As I finished reading I felt as though I was saying good-bye to a friend I wished I had. The type of friend you enjoy sitting in a jail cell with, laughing about the stupid thing you just did. The type of friend you take to Vegas because you KNOW it will be the naughtiest weekend of your entire life. Mr. Barnes, I implore you continue the exploits of Asmodeus, if not for myself then for all the good little boys and girls out there who need to learn how to have a good time.

By Ethan
Format:Kindle Edition
A gripping and worthy read that will leave you wishing a "friend" would help you break free of your own thankless and cruel world. This book will leave you wondering what and who are really insane: the system, or the protagonist? You will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars My friend for sure! December 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great lil' story of demonic possession. It has everything you want in a good shorty... mucho action, chills, gore, dark comedy and even a spooky blood spattered smiley face. The story is well written and perfectly paced. Barnes is a fantastic story-teller and a voice to look out for in the future. I highly recommend this tale and eagerly await Barnes' next release!

5.0 out of 5 stars I want a demon (in my best Veruca Salt) October 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Yes, I want a demon! This book was a most wonderful read, except that it was over and done with so quickly, I felt sadly that I hadn't savored it more! It had action, it had gore, it was GREAT! A regular old guy, like you, like me, gets a demon, and Oh the fun he's not important that I tell you what happens, YOU can read it for yourself! Just know that by the end of the story, you, too, will be wanting a demon!

By Gerrerd

The only complaint that i could think of about this book is that there are not 3 more of them. The writing is a perfect mix of story telling and comedy. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with a sense of humor. Really just an all around great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome and offensive! December 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
My Friend Asmodeus was a twisted and surprisingly funny ride that will grab your attention from the first page to the last. A classic tale of good versus evil that has you rooting for the bad guy, while it shows us just how much fun it can be being bad. The author leaves you wanting more as it is a very fast read, but that is about the only negative thing I can think to say about My Friend Asmodeus.
If you're easily offended, read it anyway!

We all have that little voice in your head urging to say what’s on your mine regardless of what it is. Well what would you do if that voice in your head was actually a demon that gave you the power to control others and promises you world? Would you go sign yourself into the nearest looney bin or would you embrace it and see where it takes you? Nathan Barnes takes us on rollicking tale of anarchy be it only a short one.

This is my second sampling of this author’s works and I continue to be impressed. This book is the perfect length to read in one go and at the end I was wanting more. I would love to see this novella evolve into a full length novel. But at the moment all I can do is sample another one of this authors offerings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice short story
I liked Barnes's story, giving a new look at demonic possession. I might have liked it more if the demon was not so all-powerful, but it's definitely a good read.
