ATAI Book Award 4 StarsLucifer: Soldiers, Serpents, and Sin (Book 1), penned by David Taylor II, is a fantastical twist on the well-known tale of the angel-turned-devil, Lucifer. Its first installment, A Clash of Lightning and Thunder, the reader is carried on a journey from the perspective of Lucifer himself through his creation, rise to glory and, ultimately, his rebellion. Despite its biblical themes and characters, this story is told from beneath a cloak of science fiction, placing a creative and unique spin on one of the most widely known stories from the Bible.

“Of course we all know the Bible says Lucifer was a fallen angel sent to hell; but there HAD to be more to that story and it was bound to be interesting.
I am interested in symbolism, spirituality and alternate realities and that is why I loved this book – it is a highly imaginative and thought provoking look at at the spirit world or perhaps it is just another dimensional frequency.
How powerful is Lucifer; how did he get that power and what secret did he discover through MURDER?
This book reminded me of the first line of the Bible, “In the beginning there was the word.” Yes, indeed the written word or a name has a powerful esoteric quality and cannot be destroyed.
A very interesting conceptual book and in many ways a semblance of the real.”

“I’ve never read an account of the war in Heaven quite like this one. A very interesting depiction of the rise and fall of Lucifer. This isn’t your typical theological tome full of “thee’s” and “thou’s”… it’s a fascinating blend of science fiction, current pop-culture, and theology.
I very much look forward to the next book!”

“This blends some of the best sci-fi writing (I could literally envision this technologically advanced heaven) with banter and personality. It is not too snarky or gloomy, it’s adventurous and relatable.
It reminds me a bit of Octavia Butler in the set-up and reads like a movie. Actually, I hope this becomes a series. I have grown to like the character Lucifer so much that I’m saddened at the transformation that will come … Now that is good storytelling!
I expected it to be moralizing and was hesitant to pick-up, complete and happy surprise that is was relatable and exciting. Look forward to more.”

“This book is essential when it comes to learning about the bible, and how the devil, or Lucifer, actually became the devil. I have always been intrigued by the origin story of Lucifer. Fortunately, with the help of the author’s vast knowledge of the bible, I was able to learn a lot. This was a really well written book and I am actually looking forward to the next book that will follow this one. If you are looking for a great guide an explanations of what happened during that time period, I recommend checking out this book.”
