The Deceived is a controversial new biblical thriller by E.C. Fisher asks us to question: what if the Bible was a con devised by none other than Lucifer himself? What if The Rapture came, and it was a trick?
In E.C. Fisher’s biblical thriller The Deceived, it is the devil who is behind religion, and everyone from Adam and Eve on up are in the thrall of his lies. But as the End of Days play out of Earth—a ploy designed by Lucifer to give the world to his
followers—archangel Michael is sent down to earth from heaven, where he must battle the devil in order to save God’s children—not to mention the planet itself. As God lays dying in heaven, and Lucifer kidnaps Michael’s soulmate, Ari-el—Michael must face not only the potential of demons overtaking earth, but the loss of both his father and one true love. Armed with the Sword of the Spirit, which was forged from God’s own powerful wings, Michael sets to destroy the Antichrist, and thereby bring an end to the deadly masquerade that is Lucifer’s religion.
