This was an interesting take on the whole genre of Lucifer fiction. I enjoy reading (and watching) stories about Lucifer as a fully fleshed out character, as well as how he might interact with the modern world.

A fascinating story that joins a classic work with modern fantasy fiction

Morningstar Ascendant is an fantasy that makes the struggle between the forces of good and evil transcend time and place. The classical forces of both heaven and hell are humanized in a creative and intriguing plot with surprising twists and turns.
As a new author,Nicholas, shows a talent for both creativity and character development. A must read for fantasy lovers and students of Paradise Lost.

This novel was a great way for Nick to kick off his career. The influence of religious literature and his experience abroad shines through the story. Reading The Divine Comedy and Paradise Lost beforehand will help the reader understand the events better. The characters were interesting and brought the story alive. The book was entertaining even if you lost your faith. I recommend reading it!
