Book Review: Lightbringer
After eons of trying to prove that humanity was God's true failure, Lucifer Avgerinos settled into life in Hollywood, which was the perfect place of residence for the devil, as far as he was concerned. He ran a successful movie studio, enjoyed the evil fodder abundant in the industry, and generally lived up to the most impious aspects of his eternally sinful reputation.
However, after losing one of the most dangerous divine weapons ever created, Lucifer is thrust into battle against a secret society backed by the Vatican to save the world from an ancient, end-of-times prophecy. Circumstances, or perhaps divine intervention, force Lucifer into partnership with occult historian, Kate St. Matin, who proves to be much more important, if not vital, to the outcome of an even bigger war brewing between the darkness and the light, a war that stretches from the gates of Heaven to the cells of Hell.
The original sinner must come to terms with his place in the failure of humanity and his feelings for Kate to save the souls of everyone on Earth. The devil's heart is the key to salvation for everyone. However, Lucifer will have to do something he has never, in the history of history, been able to do. Love.
This is the first book I have read by Karie. I instantly was sucked into this world and the characters. Although, it did not hurt that while reading this book the whole time I was picturing the case of the television show, Lucifer. So, it was easy to image them solving this dilemma.
Lucifer may be the main male lead but his brother Malec is just as enjoyable. The witty banter they shared together kept their scenes entertaining with laughter. Then there is Lucifer and Kate and their relationship. Yes, they share a romantic one but the author did a very good job of balancing the romance with the overall storyline. So that it was not overpowering or the main focal point of the story. Fans of the show Lucifer or just of really good books, will want to pick up a copy of this book for themselves. Lightbringer by Karie Evans is Angel and Demon approved!
