Since he was sentenced to earth eons ago, Lucifer has always lived by three simple rules: Humans are toys that are meant to be played with, love is a useless emotion, and the only creature worth fighting for is himself. To him, nothing matters but his own enjoyment, whether it be manipulating those around him, or indulging in the sins of the flesh with Lilith. Then he found young, sweet, and innocent, Maria, who is everything that Lucifer detests. She has devoted her life to her one true love, God. Unable to resist a challenge, Lucifer sets his sights on tempting Maria away from his enemy. Disguising himself as Lucas Starr, he creates a world that not even Maria can resist. He never planned on having the tables turned on him. Imagine Lucifer’s surprise when Maria brings him to his knees and shows him a glimpse of heaven once more.

Blinded by his arrogance and an unlikely vision, Lucifer falls again, this time forgetting that some lines should never be crossed. When his greatest opponent, Michael, shows up, all Hell breaks loose. Will Maria be able to accept Lucifer for who he truly is, or realize what Michael already knows: some destinies can never be changed?

My Review:

This author’s in your face, personal writing really makes you identify with the devil and feel for him. It also makes you giggle a time or two. I mean, really, the Spanish Inquisition can now be boiled down to boredom on the Devil’s part. Being in the devil’s head like this was absolutely priceless. There is a balance between self discovery and WTF moments interspersed with larger than life descriptions that really brings the world to life.

The character development in this novel was quite unique. The author’s in your face writing style combines with Luc’s ability to read minds to give you characters that are not only developed on the surface but all the way through. You don’t just get to know them by their actions and reactions but also the why’s and how’s.

Overall, I found it difficult to become completely engaged in the story. It was an enjoyable read yet I felt a little disjointed for part of the novel. I was much more intrigued by the ending but it took a while to warm up to.
