Description

Have you ever wondered what the story of the Bible would look like from the perspective of Satan? Perhaps one of the most maligned figures in literary history, the fallen angel known as "Lucifer" has his own story to tell. It shouldn't surprise you to know that it is strikingly different from anything else you've heard on the subject.

From the back of the book:

We are all the hero of our own story, and "history" is written by the victors.

The Falling Star is the story of the Archangel Samael. Once among the highest Angels of the Heavenly Host, yet forever remembered as Satan.

Using the Biblical narrative as a backdrop, the story unfolds from the perspective of the supposed villain. Samael's journey is one of self-discovery, as he grapples with the concepts of free will, subjective truth and predestination.

Samael desperately wants to believe in his own autonomy, yet is constantly confronted with evidence that God holds the reins. That his supposed free will is, in fact, illusory.

Join us as we read between the lines, examine the subtext, and fill in the blanks of one of the most well-known stories ever told.
