The Prince: Lucifer’s Origins is a science fiction novel written by J.M. Erickson. Prince Victor Venture IX is the younger brother of Prince Jason who had been ruling the Sagittarius Sector. Victor’s been studying on Pax, a university planet, for most of his life, and he’s been hoping that he’ll be forgotten and allowed to remain there. Jason has other plans for his brother, however, and he wants to start training him. Victor will be escorted by Sergeant Marcia Devin and her crew. They’re not terribly impressed by the diffident, scholarly twelve-year-old they’re travelling with, and their concerns for him are heightened when their transport ship is attacked on the orders of Prince Ramsey of the Capricorn Sector, who’s decided that he wants to control both sectors.
J.M. Erickson's science fiction thriller, The Prince: Lucifer’s Origins, is a thought-provoking and intense read that's brimming with action, adventure and exploration as young Victor becomes the Prince in more than just name and lineage. I've become rather disenchanted with the science fiction genre of late and was not sure what to expect with this offering, but the author's original story, lucid writing style and skillful plotting quickly had me fully involved with the story and having a grand time as I read it. I had previously read and enjoyed J.M. Erickson's Birds of Prey series and, as with those books, found this science fiction story to be a thinking person's thriller that satisfies on a number of levels. I'm hoping the author has plans for a sequel. The Prince: Lucifer’s Origins is most highly recommended.
