Get Behind Me Satan...

After reading the incredibly enjoyable book Devilish by Maureen Johnson I got to wondering, "what's with all the satan stuff lately?" Take for instance the new Kevin Smith directed TV show on the CW, Reaper about a boy who discovers his parents sold his soul to the devil before he was even born - and now he has to work as satan's bounty hunter! In addition to the devil-meets-chick-lit title Devilish there's been a rash of devil books published for teens lately: Repossessed, Black Tattoo, Alfred Kropp: the Seal of Solomon and finally the Demonata series by Cirque Du Freak author Darren Shan. Whether the devil, satan himself, Lucifer, El Diablo or Beelzebub there's plenty of entertainment to be had.
