Publisher's Summary

A stand-alone adventure that is also Volume One of The Above series !
The Power has returned. And now, I, the exiled dark lord Lucian, race across the infinite planes of creation, a charge of mass murder upon my head, vicious foes dogging my every step. My goals are simple: Justice for myself, vengeance upon my enemies, and conquest of the universe, if I get half a chance.
But events are conspiring to bring me together with some very unexpected allies, and to thrust me into the most unlikely role of all... Hero?!

After a failed coup attempt, the dark lord Lucian was exiled from the Golden City of the gods and has dwelt for centuries among the worlds of man. During that time, he carved out a star empire of his own. Now the Power has returned - the Power that fuels the immortality and astounding abilities of the gods - and Lucian has resolved to cast aside his ties to humanity, end his exile, and make his way back to his beloved celestial city. But what he finds when he arrives there is not what he expected: Mysterious beings all in black roam the cosmic pathways, most of the gods have somehow vanished, and those who remain look upon him with unadulterated suspicion and hate. His mission is this: he must clear his own name and find the true culprit, even as his brother and sister gods do everything in their power to capture and destroy him.
No one ever said it was easy to be the god of evil...
Lucian: Dark God's Homecoming combines exciting SF/Fantasy adventure with a puzzling murder mystery whodunit in the grand tradition of Roger Zelazny's Amber series and Jack Vance's Dying Earth.

Fun!

Lots if fun in this book. A story of personal growth, shimmering portals to other planes of existence, and a mystery to be solved. Mortals, gods, demons, and ray guns. What is there not to like? The recording does have a few missed edits, but if noticed, but just know it moves on quickly without any real issue.

Fantastic work!

Was given this as a gift and i was spellbound by each minute. The characters were so well developed within the story that I could never determine who was friend and who was foe. Will definitely be purchasing the hard copy for my personal library and I can't wait to read more from the author.
