Lucifer, Book Two by Mike Carey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
There's very little bad I can say about an epic tome where Lucifer steals the Demiurgic power to create his own universe and allow anyone to stay there as long as they obey one rule: worship no god.
Of course, when a pack of sentient tarot cards borrowing Destiny's book decides to screw Lucy over by forcing a universe to worship them, culminating in treachery, unexpected hope, sacrifice, and a whole slew of fantastic storytelling and plot, the end of this collection is solid as all hell. Without hell, of course. He's done away with both heaven and hell and wants everyone to live their lives without bending any knee anywhere.
Kinda glorious, actually. Too bad all these jerks have to come in and break all their grudges against poor Lucy. He's still an insufferable twat in his way but he never forgets his debts. Or his ideals. For that, I'm super impressed. :)
