The war in Heaven is over. The plains of Armageddon are still,
and the blood which ran across them like rivers has dried
to dust. A new order has risen in Yahweh's Creation, and those
who survived its birth must now try to resume their lives
in its aftermath. For some, new-found responsibilities will
weigh heavy. For Lucifer Morningstar, victory promises freedom
- the ultimate freedom to choose his own fate. But apart from
wrapping up the new loose ends he has left in this universe,
there is one final test that the Fallen One must carry out
before taking his leave...
is the eleventh and final chapter in the Lucifer series

rest of the stories reprinted here wrap up a few loose ends
as well as bringing Lucifer face to face with his maker once

Lucifer, one that will cost them both as well as benefit them
both. Will Lucifer be reunited with his creator? Or will he
decline the offer and keep his freewill?
of the series will not be disappointed - this was well worth
