Welcome to the Day 8 of The Belgrave Legacy Blog Series. The series spans from September 20, 2016) to November 1, 2016. Each week, there will be a theme with 2 blog posts (Tuesday and Thursday).
This week's theme is Powerful Giants.
Here are the past posts, in case you missed any of them:
I'm going to come right out that my Lucifer is not a devil with horns, nor is he a guy with a burning face (à la the CW show Supernatural). The man I pictured as my fallen angel, king of Hell, is a handsome devil. In more literal terms, I'm talking about Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore on the CW show The Vampire Diaries.
Unlike my God, I make my Devil more sympathetic than is orthodox. But, like the fallibility of my God doesn't make him wrong, humanizing Lucifer doesn't excuse his awful actions throughout mythology (yes, I'm calling the Bible mythology) and my novel, The Belgrave Legacy. My treatment of both powerful giants only makes them more well-rounded characters rather than the embodiments of two opposing extremes.
Because, it turns out that Lucifer and God have a complicated past. They didn't just appear as rivals without any backstory here. And while the Devil is still a corrupting force and none of his actions are one I would condone, the does have reasons for his vengeful mission of taking over the Earth and conquering Heaven for himself.
I can't really say more without spoiling a chapter in Part 2 of The Belgrave Legacy, but if you'd like to get the whole story, you can preorder my book now. And, if you're impatient for this story (like I am when there's a book I really want to read), then you can subscribe to my mailing list and receive Part 1 immediately! Part 1 includes a glimpse at how God and Lucifer interact, how they came to make the bargain that propels the plot, and how the Devil ropes Caleb Pearce into doing his dirty work yet again.
