It’s not just gods who answer prayers in Lovegrove’s Pantheon series…
In another e-novella exclusive from Solaris, James Lovegrove adds to his New York Times bestselling Pantheon series – which has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide – where gods are made real and men have to contend with their rule.
The latest stand-alone title in this action-packed military SF series brings you a world where Lucifer is all too real and after an ill-judged cry for help, one man is caught up in the morning star’s machinations.
1968. Guy Lucas, son a murdered British diplomat, is sent to an old-fashioned boarding school, where he is bullied and abused. A fellow student persuades him to perform a black mass and plead with Satan to intervene, with horrific consequences. For the next ten years, the shadow of Satan is cast across his life; he flees, across the sea and into obscurity, but tragedy follows him. Eventually, he must confront the Devil, and learn the truth about himself...
Lovegrove takes his ‘godpunk’ series to its next logical next step in a sinister new e-novella that will delight readers of the Pantheon series as well as fans of classic films such as The Omen and The Exorcist.
“The kind of complex, action-oriented SF Dan Brown would write if Dan Brown could write” – The Guardian
About the series
A thematic series of related, but stand-alone novels, the Pantheon series addresses the theme of “men versus the gods” in different worlds, with different pantheons, offering different takes. All high-action military SF books, the series has presented an armed uprising against distant but powerful Egyptian divinities, a high-powered slugfest between battle-suited humans and super-heroic Greek gods, and a gritty, intimate firefight between an infantry company and an army of ancient Norse giants.
