Lucifer - Connie Palmen

When I was putting together my list for the Dutch Literature class, I was dumbfounded when I found out I had only male authors so far. So to put things straight, I picked up Lucifer by Connie Palmen, one of The Netherlands' most respected contemporary literature authors. Unfortunately that was not the best choice because I was heavily disappointed by this book. The writing was okay, but the story was so boring it was a real struggle to finish.

Tot mijn grote schrik merkte ik op dat aan het eind van het samenstellen van mijn literatuurlijst op school dat ik geen enkele vrouwelijke auteur had opgenomen. Oeps, en normaal gesproken ben ik nog wel zo geëmancipeerd. Dus dat wilde ik nog even rechtzetten met een boek van Connie Palmen.

Zo gezegd, zo gedaan. Maar ik vond het echt tegenvallen. De schrijfstijl was niet verkeerd ofzo, maar het verhaal was gewoon zo vreselijk saai. Er gebeurde werkelijk niets dat een beetje op een leuke/spannende manier gebracht werd. Alleen maar saai. Heb me er echt heel erg doorheen moeten worstelen helaas.

Lucifer Vol. 2 Children and Monsters
Lucifer Vol. 2: Children and Monsters - 'Dean Ormston', 'Ryan Kelly', 'Peter Gross','Mike Carey'

Lucifer has opened his doorway into the void now, and there's a fairly complicated plan where he retrieves his wings, avoids a battle with the heavenly host, and some other stuff. I read this for the "Demons" square for the Halloween bingo. Whether the devil counts as a demon may be debatable, but there are other demons in the story. I'm not sure if it would work for any other square. The children from the title are important to the story but I'm not sure whether they would count as main characters for "Chilling children". Maybe Elaine would.

Lucifer’s Daughter By Eve Langlais Free!
Lucifer's Daughter (Princess Of Hell) (Volume 1) - Eve Langlais

t drives my dad nuts I’m such a goody two shoes, but the fact that I’m a virgin makes smoke pour from his ears. See, I’m determined to save myself for love, but daddy dear, more commonly known as Lucifer, just wants me to stop being an embarrassment. Would it kill you to sin a little?


Maybe he’ll get his wish because I met an intriguing hunk last night in my bar. Could he be the one? He certainly melts my panties like marshmallows over the coals of Hell, but do I dare trust him? My last boyfriend thought he’d gain infamy by killing me. He’s infamous all right. Dad had him mounted on a wall, his version of modern art titled, ‘Touch my baby girl and die’. Cute in a twisted way.

My love life isn’t the only thing I've got to worry about. There’s someone threatening the denizens of Hell, and while my daddy says to not worry my pretty little head about it, I an involved because whoever is behind the attacks keeps coming after me.

Bring it. I’m not afraid. Being a princess of Hell means that sometimes I have to grab a demon by the horns and slap it around. It’s what keeps my ass looking great.

Nothing in my life is ever simple, and I blame that on my dad, Lucifer. Assassination attempts, hellhounds, and a rebellion in Hell? A piece of cake compared to the turmoil in my heart. No one ever told me love would be the toughest battle of all.

Audio Book Review: Lucifer's Star
Lucifer's Star - C. T. Phipps,Michael Su... Lucifer's Star - C. T. Phipps,Michael Suttkus

3.5 stars

*I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Eric is a new narrator for me. From the first sentence Eric had a positive, hopeful sound to his voice for me. I can hear his deep breaths between lines. There is a short (about 3 or 4 words) that didn't follow character tone in the beginning, I caught only because following the book at that time. Eric does do different tones for characters, giving them a sound of age and their own voice. I did pick up on one small repeat, I almost missed it as it was quick.

I just love that first sentence! What a sight that would be. The sentence really drew the picture for me.

We start with Cassius in a big battle in his life on Crius. This battle is one that lingers in Cassius's mind, and what he's trying to escape from. There are sections that are memories, though with this being audio you don't see the italics that indicate it's different than the here and now. It sounds like two conversations happening at the same time. Then Cassius doesn't talk to himself as much and is easier to catch as the book goes on. The book is focused on Cassius and his time on his current ship. The people are also residing on this ship are not who they seem to be.

As we learn these people aren't who they say they are, we see much more in this unstable universe. The different groups in the universe are all working at different angles. Even the people in the organizations have different angles they are working. So much to play with here!

Cassius grows through the book, as he grows to realize he has friends. Cassius is running from who he is. He wants to be someone that's not of the Archduchy to live his life with the guilt he feels. Through what he learns in the events he lives through, and the connections made, Cassius learns of details he didn't know before. I love the moment when Cassius gets a...closure with someone from his past. Cassius confronts feelings he'd been holding in.

Cassius grows attached to people which helps him along in his journeys. We learn a few have rather heavy pasts as well. The crew on the ship he finds himself on has many who are fugitives in their lands or pasts that aren't of the best actions. There are moments that feel drawn out with details of histories of people and descriptions, but the story comes together and the ending is non-stop.

I found that the AI take in this book was very interesting. There is also cloning in this book. Biodroids were a neat creation. I know we haven't heard the last of these. I don't want to give to much on this as it's a big play in the book. You have to read or listen to the book to get the details. We learn details that all come to a head at the end of the book with a special type of AI.

This wouldn't be a fun space story if we didn't get action scenes. We get just that, in space and on planet action. Even among the crew on the ship.

The world feels vast and full with crew that Cassius has acquired. I look forward to continuing with Cassius and what is in store for him next.
