Blood or Loyalty is a work of fiction in the religious fantasy genre and serves as the first installment in The Wayward Sons of the Empyrean series. It is aimed at young adults and was penned by Adam Miller. The book is a retelling of the Christian story of Lucifer’s rebellion against God and the war between the angels that follows. As Gabriel and his brother Lucifer learn about the heavens their Father has created, the mention of one name sends Lucifer and his followers into a rebellion fuelled by jealousy that has the potential to destroy heaven itself.
It's a challenge to explore Christian scripture in a way that makes it truly exciting and dynamic for the modern or casual reader who isn’t a keen historian or theologian. Telling the stories of creation according to the Old Testament, whilst inspiring awe in the already devout, can be quite inaccessible to those outside of the Christian faith. However, Adam Miller has excelled in producing an insightful and exciting retelling of Lucifer’s rebellion against God at the dawn of creation. The epic conflict between Gabriel and Lucifer is told via a trail of world-building that doesn’t stray too far from scripture, action worthy of a modern blockbuster. The personal drama between the angelic brothers brings this cornerstone story from Christianity into the 21st century. I’m happy to recommend Blood or Loyalty to readers everywhere; it’s an unforgettable read and I could not be more excited to see where future books in this series go.
