Lucifer: Evensong

Lucifer, Vol. 11: EvensongLucifer, Vol. 11: Evensong by Mike Carey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After the second war in Heaven is over, there are still a few loose ends to tie up, such as a girls’ night out where Mazikeen doesn’t kill anyone, and one last conversation between God and Lucifer. Mike Carey’s entire series has been amazing. I read the final volume with a bit of a heavy heart, knowing the fictional world I’d lived in almost exclusively for the past couple of weeks was drawing to a close and I’d have to say goodbye to the characters I’d come to enjoy and care about. I suppose that’s the marker of any quality story: not wanting it to end. Carey created a world where even demons and monsters could be sympathetic characters, and where the cosmos could only be saved through forgiveness, compassion, and working together. That’s strong medicine. I’ll miss this series a lot.
