After being wrongfully accused of deicide by his angelic brethren, the Prince of Hell undertook an epic quest through the cosmos to clear his name. Now he wants nothing more than to retire to his Los Angeles club, Ex Lux, and drown the world’s sorrows one drink at a time.
With the throne of Heaven still vacant, archangels are turning on each other in an effort to seize their absent Father’s crown. And since the Lightbringer has no desire to revisit his former kingdom, a vicious power struggle has erupted in the infernal realm, as well.
Caught between chaos above and below, Earth has never been more vulnerable. In order to keep his terrestrial retreat safe from collateral damage, Lucifer must reluctantly rejoin the fight for control over Creation. But as the battle rages, the aftershocks from his Father’s demise are growing strongersh and making it clear that some fates really are worse than death.

I must admit that I have only a limited knowledge of this comic series, although I am a fan of the television series. I really enjoyed the art style of Lucifer, and although I didn’t follow all of the storylines, which were set up in earlier books, I found the action intriguing and enjoyable.

The characters and personalities really shone through, and I will be following up with the rest of the series when I get a chance. Would recommend to those who have read the earlier works, or are already acquainted with the series, but I didn’t feel totally lost jumping in.

I received a copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
