The depiction is there in its entirety. Satan is summoned and, if you’ll excuse the expression, there is one hell of a battle!
From the novel:
“Their entrance was greeted with screams so vicious and loud that I thought I should be deafened by them. The worst of the screams came from Satan himself; screams so horrific I thought they would bring the building down around us.
Satan’s demonic angels looked startled and appeared to hang back as their Master fluttered forth toward his enemies.
I say fluttered because he looked clumsy as he tried to reach them, it seemed he had little strength in his wings. He’d dip downward only to try and raise himself up again. How lame he appeared, how completely awkward and ridiculous he looked as he tried to fly!
How could this be I wondered? Hadn’t he once been one of God’s own angels, perfect in form and symmetry and possessed of beatific flawlessness?
So what had changed him? He had changed himself. His own diabolical evil had changed him forever; corrupting his being, marking him for all eternity as the great beast that he became. Where he had once been handsome, his evil had turned him into the abomination I now saw.
There were many names for him: Beelzebub, the great deceiver, the old serpent, Mammon—the father of all evil on earth. He was the master of the dark, the lord of sin a monster by any other name, but always Satan. Satan a being disfigured and marked forever, so that there would be no mistake as to who and what he really was, even as he ruled over the damned, he himself was damned too in the sight of God.
The shocked silence became noise then as the hideous coven celebrants began to urge him on...”
(end of excerpt)
There are human supplicants and demonic supplicants. They refer to Satan as Father Satan, giving him the respect they think he deserves.
There are human sacrifices as well. It is important to the storyline because it is part of the storyline. In the cases of my characters they want something in exchange.
But the point is made that even if they get it—their reward, the fulfillment of their pact, whatever it is they coveted, there are surprising consequences.
Make a deal with the devil and you can be sure of one thing: there is no certainty.
One of my main characters’ involvement is really surprising because of her history.
