Overview

Imagine a war between angels and demons that extends across our universe. Now, think bigger. Imagine that the fight between Lucifer and Jehovah extends across not only our universe but also involves two more ancient universes filled with demons and elves.

The Lucifer's Fall trilogy of the Primal Patterns series is the story of the most celebrated demon warrior and king in history, and the birth of a moral and intellectual renaissance in the Chaos Universe. The first book, "Lucifer's Odyssey", traces the demon prince Lucifer from his imprisonment by Jehovah on Earth to the betrayal of his parents in Chaos and a shaky alliance with the Elven people. Filled with irreverent humor and fast paced action, Lucifer's Odyssey beckons you to take a journey through space and time into a story where elven technology meets the ruthlessness of the demon race and the potential of Jehovah's great creations.

"Lucifer's Odyssey" is the first book of the Lucifer's Fall trilogy, and book one in the Primal Patterns series.

The third book "Shadows of Our Fathers" is set for release in May 2017.

Witty, Sarcastic and fun. This is definetly not a bible story. A bit confusing at the onset but once you get to about the forth chapter, everthing starts making more sense. Once you get passed the character names and get into the story this turns into quite the science fiction fantasy battle story. Excellent writing style allows you to visualize every scene. Good way to spend an afternoon in the sun.

This tale weaves the biblical conflict between good and evil, faith and science, and love and duty into a fun, action packed novel.

Never in a million years did I think I'd be rooting for Lucifer! This book has a whole new take on the relationships between Lucifer, Michael, Jehovah and the rest of the gang. Lucifer, by the way, is the Crown Prince of Chaos and he's stuck on Earth. This was an amazing story. At first, when I began reading, I thought Lucifer was just what I would expect the devil to be like. After reading further into the book, he became more likeable-yes likeable. No I'm not crazy, Nor am I a Satan worshipper. This book just was that good! The magic part kind of threw me for a loop. Not enough really explained about magic--maybe in the later books. (This is book one of a series) Read it, you'll be surprised and amazed. I received this book from LibraryThing Member giveaways. I was looking forward to reading about Lucifer getting his butt kicked. This was much better! READ THIS BOOK!!

I just finished reading Lucifer's Odyssey and it is one of the best books I have read in a while. You follow the life journey of a demon prince whose story spans millions of years through good times and bad times, happiness, sadness,love and war. This book shines a whole new light on heaven/hell and the universe, so if you don't have an open mind do not read this book. I found it quite entertaining and eye opening and quite different from anything else I have read. I wish I had the talent of Mr. Rex Jameson, I can not wait for the Goblin Rebellion . Keep up the great work.

The story begins on Earth where Lucifer and his companions are confronted by Michael and set on a path that takes them to their home the Chaos Pattern. Upon arriving they learn that terrible things have happened and all of the people blame Lucifer's father who sits upon the throne. With conflict between the clans being imminent Lucifer must flee to seek help from an old goblin friend in order to ensure his proper place on the throne. Rex Jameson does a wonderful job telling this story in a completely unexpected way. Lucifer is a good character and while I didn't really relate to him much (he is still a bit of a sociopath at times) there are parts where it is easy to sympathize with his problems. There only real issue I had with the book was the magic system. Pattern magic is spoken of and used throughout the story, but I never really understood much about it. One of the things I love about fantasy novels is the unique twists that so many people bring to magic, and I would have liked to understand this one a little bit better. That really doesn't affect they story however it is more of a personal preference in a book. Review based on ARC from author.

(Sorry - I can't figure out how to get paragraph breaks in here) When Rex asked me to read this book, the name Lucifer was enough for me. Come on, who doesn't love a great scary Satan novel? So wrong. Rex has done something so unique I'm actually giddy as I write this. He took some spiritual names we are familiar with, characters even and put them in new roles and new places. Lucifer is the crowned prince of Chaos, trapped on Earth. Remember the archangel Michael? He's Lucifer's twin brother. And Jehovah? He's Lucifer's cousin...a rule-breaking scholar who left the Chaos Primal to create Order. And I LOVE that Jehovah, kind of an arrogant tool, is married to Gaea. And yes, she is mother earth to his cool scientific God. There are also Goblins Elves...they don't like to be called Goblins. They live in a 3rd Primal. The Elvin and Chaos primals were created by Archimedes. They can speak with him and also with the primals. Well in theory, in the book only the Chaos one speaks. It's all so intense. There is magic, immortals, and really no holds barred on theories or physical laws. Lucifer has to fight to win back the respect of the elves, to get back his rightful place on the throne, to save his kingdom and the elves. To stop not only Jehovah, but Eranos. And as much as a egotistical and evil as he seems in the beginning, you end up rooting for the demon. And yes, he is a demon, wings and all. So get a copy, it's a fascinating and fun read!

I started this ebook yesterday. I couldn't put it down. I have to say if you have a problem with an alternate theory of heaven/hell and the universe, don't read this book. I found it to be entertaining, unique, and I can't wait for the next installment.
