Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. Neil Gaiman
Phil Walker was a normal man, until the demons invaded his mind. Unsure whether they were real, he resisted until they threatened someone’s life, and then took action. The results were immediate. He was questioned by the police, laughed at and insulted, but the homeless man he defended reported his schizophrenia was cured. After that, everything Phil once knew was turned upside down.
Eager to understand his visions, he seeks answers, only to face skepticism and hostility from the medical community. Does it really matter if he’s technically insane if he cures hundreds? As Phil battles his inner demons, he wrestles with where they originated and how they impact him and his health. However, the question remains: are his unusual skills an otherworldly phenomenon, the results of disease or a gift from above?
This is an interesting book, as it crosses a number of book genres. Nominally a science fiction story, it include demons, dragons, devils and fairies, and explores how one might attempt to promote an alternative medicine if they couldn’t defend how it functions, even though it’s efficacy is clear.
