This is the tale of the fall of Lucifer like you’ve never seen it before. For one thing, this version of Lucifer would never have called his exit from Heaven a fall of any kind, but rather a freeing! Beginning life as the angel Allero, he soon realizes he wants more. Here enters Death. The relationship between Allero and the being that is Death is in turns disturbing and unexpectedly sweet. This quick novella definitely sets up the coming series well by introducing a cast of characters that include angels and demons galore.
This is a challenging read. It takes all those biblical tales and turns them on their head. Getting past the ingrained stories was critical in being able to enjoy this perspective. My favorite part of this story was that even though the characters were literally angels and demons, there were redeeming qualities and damning qualities in every one. This was a great introduction to this world and the following stories should provide readers with some interesting adventures.
