FICTION SUSPENSE & THRILLERS
The Fall of Lucifer
by Wendy Alec
Angelic writings have been discovered, revealing the story of man and
Lucifer through the eyes of Gabriel….
Lucifer was once revered as an archangel, one of God’s chosen.
What went wrong? How was Hell formed? This inside story takes
readers from the creation of man through the times of Noah from an
unusual perspective… the story as told through the eyes of the
Wendy Alec paints a portrait of Heaven in all its splendor. The
descriptions are ornate, almost flamboyant… and yet one can easily
imagine the sheer magnificence and feel the overwhelming awe. It’s hard
not to feel a sense of wonder while reading THE FALL OF LUCIFER. The
word portrait of Heaven alone is worth reading but there is so much
more to the story than just beautiful imagery.
THE FALL OF LUCIFER answers the age-old question of why Lucifer would
forsake the splendor of Heaven. Wendy Alec offers a portrait of the
dangers of greed and envy. We see an archangel transformed from one of
God’s beloved to a twisted, dark creature. Even more stunning, however,
is the portrait of the Messiah. Wendy Alec’s depiction of Jesus and the
reasoning behind His sacrifice is nothing short of stunning.
The theme of free will is never more evident than in THE FALL OF
LUCIFER. Wendy Alec hammers home the point that all are given free
will- even the archangels. Some may quibble over her biblical
interpretations but one cannot contest that the story itself is a
detailed and intricate account of something we know very little about.
Bravo to Ms. Alec for her endeavors.
