Lucifer vol. 2: Father Lucifer
After being wrongfully accused of deicide by his angelic brethren, the Prince of Hell undertook an epic quest through the cosmos to clear his name. Now he wants nothing more than to retire to his Los Angeles club, Ex Lux, and drown the world’s sorrows one drink at a time.
With the throne of Heaven still vacant, archangels are turning on each other in an effort to seize their absent Father’s crown. And since the Lightbringer has no desire to revisit his former kingdom, a vicious power struggle has erupted in the infernal realm, as well.
Caught between chaos above and below, Earth has never been more vulnerable. In order to keep his terrestrial retreat safe from collateral damage, Lucifer must reluctantly rejoin the fight for control over Creation. But as the battle rages, the aftershocks from his Father’s demise are growing stronger—and making it clear that some fates really are worse than death.
“It’s been years since readers have seen Vertigo’s Lucifer, but this debut makes it feel like he never left at all. Holly Black not only picks up the baton from the original series, but runs with it, tempering the charm and style of the character with a metaphysical detective story sure to hook readers of all stripe.”
