Synopsis of Chronicles of Brothers, Book 1 The Fall of Lucifer
(information from Warboys)

In the hallowed corridors of heaven itself, the love between three brothers fills the ages before time began. Lucifer, the beloved of heaven, first and greatest of the three. Worship leader of heaven. His throne second only to the Most High's. Ever has he been the Lord God's prince and favourite subject.

Michael, commander of the host of heaven, strong and wise and steadfast. And Gabriel, youngest and most idealistic, loyal and loving for eternity past. Brothers for eternity.

The shining halls of glory buzz with the news of God's new creation - a physical universe. Stars and planets and seas and creatures, all to be made not of spirit but of matter. All to provide the home for the Almighty's crowning creation, a mortal man-bearing in physical form the DNA of God Himself. But in mankind, Lucifer sees his replacement as God's favourite.

Lucifer, gifted, ardent devoted is consumed with jealousy and hate for this "man" who is so loved by the creator. A vicious and devious series of events sees Lucifer and his fallen horde banished from heaven. They swiftly enforce their claim to the generations of the race of men, past, present and future, guaranteeing their demise in the lake of fire. This is a timeless saga of love and treason, set on opulent palaces and frightening hell worlds, of demons and angelic warriors, of obsessive love and treason, and of an ancient evil that know no bounds.
