This is a book you need to approach without preconceived notions about God and the Holy Bible. This is not a book about religious propaganda. This is not a love story. Faith Moon is not the average Asian American girl. As a child of the 1950s coming of age in the 1980s, Faith has to find her own path. For someone like Faith, growing up in post-modern America had its challenges; she didn't exactly meet the narrowly defined expectations of her family and her culture. Faith's journey from the innocent days of childhood to the eye-opening choices she finds at college is one even she couldn't have predicted. When she moves into her first little apartment as a student at Illinois State University, the world is a grand mystery to be explored and devoured. Her new friends offer her a lifestyle she could never have envisioned her herself. Her new world is now filled with experiences sublime, beautiful, and horrifying. She soon finds herself drawn into the seductive world of magic and the underworld. Her new friends have unusual dietary needs, to say the least-and their unusual appetites extend to every possible definition of the flesh. Here, Faith must look deep within herself to find the truth in her own definitions of good and evil and her own morality. She finds herself debating the nature of faith itself and how religion can-or should-shape a life. For a young girl finding her own path in a turbulent and secret world, life becomes all about sex, fire, and magic.
