Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "God has abdicated the throne of heaven, and the universe is on the cusp of war. In Hell, the damned have chosen a prophet; on Earth, humanity becomes increasingly indifferent; and in the soft places between realities, grudges are being nursed into conspiracy. The archangel Michael lies dead at the base of the World Tree, and his power, let loose, burns his daughter Elaine and his brother Lucifer out of this universe and into a newborn one. Their absence allows the first woman, Lilith, and a handful of others to plot grabbing power from Heaven while the Powers in the Silver City remain disoriented. In this exciting beginning of a thrilling, high-stakes story, the fluid artwork ventures into some strikingly expressionistic manners that help in translating some very alien landscapes. The relative absence of series protagonist Lucifer adds to an aura of anxiety and anticipation. Series fans and those with passing knowledge of theology will be on firmer ground in this volume, but Crux exerts more than enough allure to garner new admirers. --Tina Coleman Copyright 2006 Booklist"
