    1 thought on “Lucifer, Book Four”

    1. This is the Fourth Volume in the Lucifer series and I am running out of accolades for this superb story. So suffice it to say "This is excellent" and on to my review of the story.In the wake of the events of Volume 3- Elaine Beloc is charged with cleaning out the immortals in Lucifer's creation. This is happening in the background of the rather touching story called "The Weaving" (a subtle jab at the whole "love/mating" mess many people involve themselves in).The "Lilith" story is superb as we w [...]

    2. The weakest of the series.The main reasons being a lack of Lucifer and some change in the artwork at the beginning.This volume seemed to have a lot of Sandman influence via the background characters being able to tell their own story with the focus on these characters and not Lucifer.Seems to be back on track by the end. Good, just not near as great as previous volumes.

    3. And to think they turned this into a police procedural I haven't watched the show, so I don't know how it stands up. But as I'm reading this collection, with its story arcs built around Ragnarok, an emotion-spinning spider, Lilith's army and a siege on the crystal city, I can't imagine how this could ever have become a police procedural. Of course Lucifer is mainly the catalyst; he's rarely the main character. Instead, most of the time is spent with the other characters; Elaine, Mazikeen, Gaudiu [...]

    4. I enjoyed this volume but I wasn't completely in love with it. Not that there is anything wrong or lacking in it, in fact, when I think back upon it the storylines might be my favourite in the series. I think the issue is that I read it slowly over several weeks rather than binging it over a day or two like I usually do. I think Lucifer might work best for me as a binge.Probably not a super helpful review. If you liked the previous three books, though, you're gonna like this one too :)

    5. Closing in on the home stretch. Another solid set of stories - just didn't knock me down and roll me over. So to speak.

    6. I feel like this is the weakest volume of the quintet. It introduces two new antagonists - one whose presence has been hinted at since day one, and whose connection to the ongoing events makes their appearance both surprising and inevitable; the other who seems to more or less come out of nowhere and have little function beyond the plot needing someone to fill a particular role.It's still very good, but there's a lot of backstory in this volume - which is as well written as the rest, and needed [...]

    7. A Lucifer book that's quite light on the Lucifer, to be honest. That said, it shows the strength of the vast amount of characters that Mike Carey has built up around the Morningstar that not having around doesn't hurt the story at all. Of course, when he is there, everything's even better, but there are times when this volume goes 5 or 6 issues without seeing him, and the story continues to barrel towards its conclusion. The stakes are getting higher and higher, and with new players and new twis [...]

    8. Everything about this book seems to suggest some great, massive conclusion--a battle between the Lilim and Heaven's armies or something of that order. I'm knocking off one star for the pitiable end that this great story actually gives us. Unless--could there be a Book Five in the offing?

    9. There's a lot going on in this volume. Characters whose arcs I thought concluded end up being relevant still, and this makes perfect sense, since all stories have neither beginnings nor endings.

    10. So good! So many minor characters are coming into the spotlight to be just as critical as Lucifer (in unexpected ways), new characters are introduced, and major characters end up needing to eat some serious crow I think that's sufficiently spoiler free. Perfect "Book 4 of 5" pacing. The relatively slow pace of #3 is ramping no back way up before the 5th. I am so excited to read #5 now!!

    11. Poetry in motion Super poetic book I enjoyed the details and imagination used for this book. I want to read more in the series.

    12. As with any series, I’m only going to be reviewing things particular to this volume, not things that are consistent across the series as a whole. This volume is the second to last book in the larger collected editions of Carey’s run on Lucifer, and I continue to love the characters as well as the ambitious cosmic crises that arise with every book.Things I Liked1. Elaine: This book sees Elaine grow up a bit and become more confident in her abilities. I liked seeing her take charge, even order [...]

    13. This was one of the grislier volumes of this often-bloody series. That's to be expected in a book set inside Hell City Limits, but it's a bit over the top here. This volume also contains a lot about Jill Presto, a character that the writers seem to find more interesting than I do. Her struggles in the earlier volumes were interesting, but she is not an exciting enough character to be such a focus.The positives of this series: It is beautifully drawn and exquisitely imagined, with worlds upon wor [...]

    14. The Stichglass weaver is the story o a weird arachnid creature named Thole, in preparing his mating ritual he meets a boy and while they become friends things get hectic for Thole as keepers of that universe are excluding anything or anyone inmortal, that and that he manages to pick up himself a mate.This volume is all over the place with different settings, characters new and old, some with more importance than others. Be it a weird Viking mythology wolf Fenris trying to end the world, the Lili [...]

    15. In the last book, Lucifer and company discovered that Yahweh has gone missing from His creation, and all the worlds are beginning to unravel. Some believe that this is the End Times as foretold in scripture, and they make their plans to be there at the death of the Universe.One of the stories here made me cry. That's not happened in response to a comic story in a long time. In the first sequence, Lucifer decrees that all immortal beings must be removed from his creation, and he sends Elaine Bell [...]

    16. Lucifer is definitely one of my favorite series and Book Four in this collection does nothing to change it.The world is layered and endlessly fascinating (actually, all worlds you'll find in the universe), the characters are interesting and have been developed throughout the the course of the story and the story is itself is gripping. I also love the diverse art style (even though some of the angels are hard to tell apart from time to time all this long blond hair). It's too bad the book ends in [...]

    17. What a great volume. The glass stitch weaver, Thole, weaving feelings into beauty. The story of Christ-opher Rudd preaching the new way in hell, and Elaine Belloc, daughter of the demiurge mad apprentice to lucifer creating new worlds. All of these stories were so profound.The introduction of Lilith, and the prophecy she aims to fulfill seems like a major turning point and I am eager to see how Lucifer, Elaine, Mazikeen and the host attempt to stop them.

    18. I'm simultaneously loving the Lucifer, Mazikeen, Fenris, Armageddon plot lines and just hating Jill Presto. I think she's a grating character that's been made into a main player as deus ex machina to push the plot. I keep hoping she'll get killed and we won't have to listen to her anymore, but I know that won't happen. Still looking forward to book 5, but less so than the others in the series.

    19. The story continues - god left, creation is at risk, new challenges/roles. The story is fine, the characters evolve and the challenge is believable (in context) but found that I am looking forward to the story ending and that my enjoyment of it was tainted by this.

    20. If there is a problem with this series is that there are too many apocalypses and they start to feel boring.I still can't believe this comic was adapted into a police procedural.

    21. Carey certainly has a lot of knowledge and imagination. Although he comes up with incredibly fascinating story concepts, this doesn't make him the best storyteller.
