Lucifier's Odyssey begins like a bad joke. Four demons and one angel (or was that wizards) walk into a bar.

Violence ensues. Then Lucifier takes off in a space-ship, shredding imprisonment like bad dialogue (if only the reader could.)

The story doesn't get much better. Satan's trip reads like a collection of cool ideas rather than a coherent plot. Characters are introduced and perish at the same rate. Poor old Azezal whose immenent death prompts Lucy's space flight dies on route without a bare mention later.

Rex appears to place more importance in numbers than literary skill. Tens of thousands die, hundreds of thousands of years pass, millions die again.

Despite the incrediable ages of these guys, they still appear incredibly juvenille. Hey could happen, but would they drop lines like "Haters gonna hate"?

Well this hater is going to hate for the most part. There are some genuinely funny parts in this book (not enough to recommend ploughing through it) and Rex needs to be commended for creating such a thoroughly bizarre universe. Unfortunately this book can't seem to keep to one tone, theme, plot or character for long enough to be taken seriously.

First of a scheduled trilogy, "Lucifer's Odyssey" is aptly named. The author conjures an imaginary history of Lucifer's rise to prominence among other demons and god-like characters. I found the idea very good using the idea of primal patterns based on the Forms of Plato's Socrates dialogs, but the core thread was held in check by wildly variable descriptions of action that borrowed heavily on an irrational mix of human-like vulnerabilities and supernatural powers attributed to the characters. The story is in no way irreligious unless the reader is bothered by an alternate suggestion as to Lucifer's ascendency to power, which would seem to be the basis of Jameson's trilogy. In short, a good book, and perhaps a better rating for fantasy fans than I've given it.

This was received as an eBook from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Lucifer is awaiting the apocalypse from Earth when he decides to travel back to his home of Chaos. This book lost me when Lucifer and his demons hijacked a NASA spaceship to travel to their home of Chaos. I just found this to be extremely cheesy and unreadable. I'm sure this book will appeal to some, just not me.

Book Info: Genre: Dark Fantasy Reading Level: Adult

Disclosure: I received a free ebook copy of this text through the LibraryThing Member's Giveaway program in exchange for an honest review.

Synopsis: 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.

My Thoughts: Imagine that everything you thought you know about good and evil, demons and angels, even elves was completely wrong. Imagine that everything you thought you knew about the war between heaven and hell was wrong. I believe it was from this perspective that Rex Jameson wrote this book, Lucifer's Odyssey.

There is not much I can tell you about this book plot-wise - if I even start to try, I'll end up spoilering all over the place. So, I'll comment on the elements of the novel instead. First of all, I loved the characters and characterization. While the book is primarily action-oriented, whenever they had the opportunity to take main stage, the characters would shine. I particularly liked Sariel - his combination of a sort of grazed, psychopathic glee and absolute horn-doggedness was a never-ending source of amusement.

"A civil war rages across the heavens between Lucifer and Jehovah, but it's not the story you thought you knew..."

That statement found in the description is absolutely true. I was excited to see a unique perspective on that war between these religious figures. I was even relieved. And it's a premise that can stick, mind you. After the first shock of excitement I was left with very little to carry on. The author managed to paint such a majestic picture of our world in the beginning that boomeranged back at the chapters that followed.

Because after the initial plunge into the premise, which artfully and right away, everything slows down and the characters turn mundane.

Note to the author, for all that it's worth: There's one thing that would have helped the story move along better, and it should have been part of the concept (spoiler) from the scene with Eve and on. The Battle that rages on since the beginning of time (for us mortals) is fought *through* us. Even in the case of the premise as is decsribed in Lucifer's Odyssey, his cause/plan to leave (trying not to spill spoilers allover the place) would have been achieved better if the whole plot revolved around the minds of the mortals and not some GobTech.
That's my take.

Good read overall, with a couple weak points that prevented me from rating higher. Recommended to readers of christian fantasy with an open mind and a knack for space-scifi (yeah, I know, right? it's still Lucifer's story though!), or just people looking for something new in the fantasy genre.
