One turned renegade
A sweeping epic of origins and mysteries, the fall of Lucifer tells a tale older than the universe itself. Set in opulent palaces and frightening hell worlds, this is a timeless saga of doubt, of demons and angelic warriors, of obsessive love and treason, and of an ancient evil that knows no bounds.
Soon the universe itself will be rocked by war…
A war between three angelic brothers…
A war fought for the greatest prize in the universe…
That war for the race of men.
I had never heard of this book before, nor this author, until one of my youth leaders recommended it and let me borrow it. I started the book the next day and finished it the same day!
Having said that, The Fall of Lucifer is an outstanding novel. The author opens your eyes and gives understanding to so many things that leaves you in a “light-bulb” moment. The book focuses on the three archangels-princes of Heaven- Michael, Gabriel and Lucifer. The author fictionalizes the story of the universe as she uses scripture to guide the story as well as the attitude of the book.
But, fictionalized stories from the Bible, though Christian and filled with scripture, need to be remembered as just that: fictionalized. Therefore one cannot take everything in this book as if the author were writing a factual non-fiction book; nor do I think that the author would want you to. What Heaven looks like in this book and how certain things operate in the Kingdom, is simply her imagination.There are also characters that are not mentioned in the Bible playing big roles in this book as well. So don’t bash the book because of it’s “inaccuracy”. It’s fiction.
I do believe, however, that the author wrote this book to encourage readers to think on Heaven and issues that may have never been addressed before. Such as how much Lucifer is loved by God and how much Lucifer hates God-as well as mankind. The Fall of Lucifer also illustrates how much God loves each and every person as the book travels through time, touching Biblical historic events such as The Fall, The Flood, the Tower of Babel, The Crucifixion, and many, many more.
I would keep the maturity level of this book about 13+ because of the things mentioned/shown. There are places in the book where the angels discuss how humans “replicate” in a scientific manner (explaining pretty completely how children are conceived but without mentioning the physical part), but there are scenes where Satan causes unwholesome sexual relations, however the author does not actually show these scenes. The battles are also a bit gruesome at times and decently detailed.There is no cursing however.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and encourage those of you who are fans of author Chuck Black to get a copy! 5 out of 5 stars.
