Lucifer's Odyssey (Primal Patterns)

by Rex Jameson

Available at Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, and Smashwords. (*Note from Rex Jameson - ebook on sale for $0.99 through October*)

Lucifer languishes in an earthly prison, awaiting the apocalypse that will finally free him after 200,000 years. Before breaking loose, he discovers that the Armageddon he set in motion will destroy the capital of Chaos, his home universe.

He travels back to Chaos and stumbles upon a bloody civil war devastating his homeland. The realm’s magic wielders are firmly under the control of a rival clan, and without their protection, Lucifer's family is in mortal peril. As old demon clan rivalries blossom and a new hostile universe expands across the known multiverse, Lucifer is faced with not only protecting Chaos from annihilation but also saving his rightful place on the throne.

When Rex asked me to read this book, the name Lucifer was enough for me. Come on, who doesn't love a great scary Satan novel?

So wrong. Rex has done something so unique I'm actually giddy as I write this. He took some spiritual names we are familiar with, characters even and put them in new roles and new places.

Lucifer is the crowned prince of Chaos, trapped on Earth. Remember the archangel Michael? He's Lucifer's twin brother. And Jehovah? He's Lucifer's cousin...a rule-breaking scholar who left the Chaos Primal to create Order. And I LOVE that Jehovah, kind of an arrogant tool, is married to Gaea. And yes, she is mother earth to his cool scientific God.

There are also Goblins Elves...they don't like to be called Goblins. They live in a 3rd Primal. The Elvin and Chaos primals were created by Archimedes. They can speak with him and also with the primals. Well in theory, in the book only the Chaos one speaks.

It's all so intense. There is magic, immortals, and really no holds barred on theories or physical laws.

Lucifer has to fight to win back the respect of the elves, to get back his rightful place on the throne, to save his kingdom and the elves. To stop not only Jehovah, but Eranos. And as much as a egotistical and evil as he seems in the beginning, you end up rooting for the demon. And yes, he is a demon, wings and all.

So get a copy, it's a fascinating and fun read!
