In the Books featuring The Lamb Of God (The Lucifer Agenda Book 0) by Shane KP O’Neill

Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books, featuring The Lamb Of God (The Lucifer Agenda Book 0) by Shane KP O’Neill.

About the Book: “The ultimate battle of good versus evil. Lucifer begins his assault against God.”

ShaneBeginning with the story of Creation; the divide in Eden and the First Great War of the Angels; the Crucifixion; and beyond, The Lamb Of God tells this story through Lucifer’s eyes. It is an introduction to The Lucifer Agenda series and the dark world of author Shane KP O’Neill, where he will take you on a journey unlike any other you have travelled before.

The battle for souls has raged since the truce that followed the First Great War of the Angels. God has struck the ultimate blow and sacrifice to gain the advantage and defeat His fallen angel and estranged son, Lucifer. As Lucifer stands at the foot of the Cross that drains the last ounce of life from Christ and eradicates man’s sins, he realises that his work must begin anew.

In time, he comes to understand that his only chance to win this battle will be to destroy the institution of the Catholic Church to turn man against God, once and for all. He searches for more than a millennium for the candidate to see his plan through to an end and finally discovers the one that can cast that final blow.

A prequel for The Lucifer Agenda series.

My Review: As a history nerd, I’m a huge fan of historical fiction and horror, so this seemed like a great place to start reading the author’s work.

As a student of history and knowing there’s always more than one side to a story, I love studying different people and events from all the available perspectives. I’ve found it helps to better understand how and why things happen, and this story is no different.

Though the story was short and a fast read, the author does a fantastic job of delving into the other side we rarely hear about in religion, and it really brings to life Lucifer’s plight, desire, and ability as few others have. You go from feeling sympathy for the character to wanting him to fail, and all points in between through the tale. If nothing else, I feel this lays solid groundwork and opens an opportunity for the future of the series. Because of this book, I definitely intend on checking out future installments of the series.

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
