About the Author
Christopher C Starr grew up in Saint Paul, MN and currently resides in the Seattle area with his wife; two kids--The Boy and the Honey Badger; and his golden retriever, Lady D. Dog. He has a sense of humor like a Gremlin, a trash TV fetish, and telling stories is absolutely what he was meant to do.

Ok, I don't want to say too much. But I will say I loved so much about this book. I knew exactly what was going on and where they were. Christopher C. Starr has a way of not only setting a stage but putting you on that stage. The scenery is set in such a way that I felt like I was watching a movie. His imagination truly holds no bounds, he was able to get into the mind of how it would feel to be God and into the mind of how it would feel to be Lucifer and the other Angels that God makes and he lets us into their psyches. Not only is the scenery AWEsome but the fights are epic.
The plot was also seamless. Although I kind of knew what the outcome was going to be but only because we all know this story. But this could easily have went either way, he writes it that well. The only criticism I may have is about the characters. I fell in love with Sela and funnily enough Lucifer, my heart went out to him throughout the entire story, but the other characters were a bit two dimensional for me. That being said I knew why each character did something because even though we didn't get a lot about each of them, Christopher gives us enough to know why they believe the way they do. So most of their choices make sense.
Christopher's writing style is very fun but I am probably a bit biased because I do tend to lean more towards first person. But he writes fiercely, delving into the heart of the story and grabbing it by the throat, as well as us and he never lets go! Definitely a very fun read and one that I plan on reading again and recommending to friends. The only downside, the second is not out yet! But we heard it straight from Christopher's mouth (well really fingers) in the interview that comes out today:
For my fans, hang out with me, the sequel is coming. Promise. And if you want to know where we're going, just ask. Let's talk about it. For those who haven't read my book, check it out. It's unlike anything you've read before--like Lucifer says, "You've never heard this story before--not from me. Others have tried. None of them got it right." Check it out, join the conversation.
been or should have been.We are each entitled to his/her belief,but I do not agree with the attitude of non-humans adopting human
emotions and characteristics.That causes me to feel less unique, and perhaps less than Creation itself intended.
I'll reread and say again in the near future.
