[in-kyuh-buh s]

noun

Origin

1175-1225; Middle English, Late Latin

demon

Featured Incubus:

Bedlam from Raising Chaos

Now Bedlam isn’t a demon like in that beautiful picture up there. He’s actually a demon as in a fallen angel / Lucifer’s bff. Bedlam is a pretty crazy demon (sorry bad pun). What I love about him is how hard he tries to be good even though he can’t get away from all the chaos. Plus he’s sarcastic all the time which I can’t help but loving. He’s probably one of the more entertaining characters I’ve read about. He’s not the typical male lead so don’t expect any romance or a super perfect guy. He’s just a fun person to be around even though he gets into all sorts of trouble.

Summary: When good fails, chaos rises to the challenge.

The daily life of a chaos demon is delightfully sinful—overindulging in Sri Lankan delicacies, trespassing on private beaches in Hawaii, and getting soused at the best angel bar on the planet. But when Bedlam learns that the archdemon Azrael has escaped from the Abyss in order to wreak vengeance against the person who sent her there—Bedlam’s best friend, Khet—he can’t sit idly by.

Only one relic possesses the power to kill Khet, who suffers immortality at Lucifer’s request: the mythical Spear of Destiny, which pierced Christ’s side at His crucifixion. Neither angel nor demon has seen the Spear in two thousand years, but Azrael claims to know its location. Bedlam has no choice but to interpret woefully outdated clues and race her to its ancient resting place.

His quest is made nearly impossible by the interference of a persnickety archivist, Keziel—his angelic ex—and a dedicated cult intent on keeping the Spear out of the wrong hands. But to Bedlam, “wrong” is just an arbitrary word, and there’s no way he’s letting Khet die without a fight.

The first book in this series is called The Oracle of Philadelphia and it’s written by Elizabeth Corrigan. I would seriously recommend it to anyone that loves angels/demons and any mythology/history. It’s an interesting and unique book.

    Attacking someone while they sleep is so evil. That’s why these characters are so popular.
