Lucifer has created another world and playing with it
Lucifer, Vol. 3: A Dalliance With the Damned - Ryan Kelly,Dean Ormston,Peter Gross,Mike Carey

One of the most imaginative story is for Lucifer to experiment with humans by creating another Eden and put two humans in it and asked them to worship no one.

 

Which started out great. Two heterosexual humans found pleasure and company with each other. While the woman is fine with this, the man was tempted by the talking snake that told him that desire is a bad thing. 

 

What's up with that? That's the Christian obsession with sex and contaminated it with guilt. Finally, the man suffered because he could not deal with his own internal conflict. 

 

Lucifer is not surprised but he would continue to experiment with this. 

Other story include the daughter of an angel and how she would like to meet Lucifer. 

Another one is about a group of demons imitating high society. 

Kind of fun to read. The graphic is good as well.

Lucifer is having a complicated adventure
Lucifer Vol. 2: Children and Monsters - 'Dean Ormston', 'Ryan Kelly', 'Peter Gross','Mike Carey'

 

A new image of Lucifer from the mind of Neil Gaiman. This is a continuation of the series Sandman. 

 

The story began when Lucifer is in the void with nothing except his wit. He got no weapon and has no cloth.

 

Then he found the Windowless castle that hold his wings. 

 

He wants it back.

 

In the world, Lux being the center of strange attention because of the gate to the void.

 

Then there are monster who wants death because she was cursed. 

 

The story is rich and the last one about the committee of Angels want to come down to LA and fight Lucifer.

 

Interesting. 

 

Angels are assholes. 

 

It is better to be logical and interact with humans, instead of treating them like toys. 

 

That what the Christian bible god did, playing with humans like toys. So careless.

 

The re imagination of Lucifer is fun.

 

5 stars read.

Reading progress update: I've read 113 out of 208 pages.
Lucifer Vol. 2: Children and Monsters - 'Dean Ormston', 'Ryan Kelly', 'Peter Gross','Mike Carey'

Lucifer is went to the void through the gate to find his wings. 

 

He faced some wicked gods and need to find the way to fight them with only his wit, as he is naked and has no weapon.

 

Of course he did it. 

 

The story is interesting and the illustration is fine. Lucky to find this at all on sale.

The story lacks credibility!
The One Man: The Riveting and Intense Bestselling WWII Thriller - Andrew Gross

The One Man: A Novel-Andrew Gross, author; Edouardo Ballerini, narrator

A young Jewish man escapes from Nazi occupied Poland and resettles in America. He discovers that his entire family has been wiped out by Hitler and is consumed with guilt because he escaped, while they did not. When he is asked to volunteer for a very dangerous “top secret” mission, he believes it will be an opportunity to redeem himself, and he agrees. Franklin Delano Roosevelt has personally thanked him for accepting this assignment.

Nathan Blum is tasked with sneaking into Oswiecim, in Poland in order to secretly enter the Auschwitz Concentration Camp. The Americans want him to extract a scientist, Alfred Mendl. He is a physicist who might be able to help them develop the atom bomb before the Germans succeed in the same effort. A qualified team has already been assembled, and he is the final missing piece. Essentially, it sounds like a suicide mission because no one who enters Auschwitz ever leaves alive, let alone

Blum is dropped into a forest in Poland and secretly joins a work force when it returns to the camp. He has three days to complete the mission. He witnessed, first hand, the terrible suffering of the prisoners and the almost impossibility of surviving in the brutal environment of the camp. Hitler’s minions were sadists who had no compunction about inflicting pain or death.

Into this mix came a romance that was difficult to believe, between the Commandant’s wife and a teenaged boy, Leo. Leo was a fabulous chess player and was gifted with a fantastic memory. He happened to be the camp chess champion. The Commandant’s wife was a lover of chess and soon had him brought to her home for afternoon matches. An unusual friendship developed. When Mendl discovered Leo’s ability to memorize everything, he decided to teach him his formulas. The Nazis had destroyed his work, not realizing its importance. He wanted Leo to commit all of his formulas on fusion to memory. They had destroyed his notes and this was his only way to preserve them.

When Blum found Mendl, which was difficult to believe since the inmates did not answer to a name, but instead to a number, he attempted to explain his mission to him. Mendl had some trepidation about the plan; he did not want to agree. When he finally did, he had one condition. He would only go if he could take Leo with him. The ensuing conversation turned the tide of the escape because when Nathan made a shocking discovery, he was reminded of Mendl’s words. He had asked Blum about what type of person would leave their flesh and blood behind while saving themselves. Blum was faced with a huge predicament.

The book took a bit too much melodrama. The excessive number of twists and turns made it tedious much of the time. The author seemed to be trying to create far too much tension. Every time the reader thought a turning point had been reached, something would happen to stall the momentum. An incredible tangent might be created or another near miss would occur that prevented the successful completion of the task. In the end, there were simply too many diversions in the book for the pace to remain steady. After awhile, it did not feel authentic because even a minor student of history would be aware of the horrors of the Holocaust and its eventual outcome. Creating a fiction around it that seemed implausible simply didn’t work that well. The reader would know that it could never happen the way it was presented. In addition, the plan seemed to be doomed to fail because no one could cheat death so many times during that period in history. It was luck that kept some people alive, but when would luck eventually run out? The only thing that really kept me interested was the question of Bloom’s success or failure, but it took too long to get there.

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.
