A long-forgotten evil. An unstoppable enemy. Nicolas Murray, once a college student from Texas, is now a master necromancer, Archmage of the Three Kingdoms, and the religious leader of millions on Erindor. When Nicolas returns with his fiancee Kaitlyn and his beagle Toby after a ten-minute trip to Earth, months have passed on Erindor. The Pinnacle-the seat of his political power-is in chaos, and the land is besieged by an enemy who has returned to collect on an old debt. When Kaitlyn begins to show signs of Awakening-and not even a Mukhtaar Lord can guide her safely into her powers-Nicolas must make a choice; lead the fight against an armada that threatens to destroy the Three Kingdoms, or set out to find a magus who can guide Kaitlyn before her latent power kills her. As Kaitlyn's symptoms worsen, and one city after another falls, an ancient evil is uncovered. An evil the Mukhtaar Lords believe was behind every vile event in recent history, from Kagan's Great Barrier to the Purge that brought necromancy to the brink of extinction. With the help of old friends and new, Nicolas must confront the enemy the Three Kingdoms has feared for decades. Even if it means taking the ultimate risk. Nicolas is a man embattled... A priest tested... A Necromancer Falling."

"Knowledge in the absence of wisdom is a dangerous thing." Texas archaeology student Nicolas Murray has an ironic fear of the dead. A latent power connecting him to an ancient order of Necromancers floods his mind with impossible images of battle among hive-mind predators and philosopher fishmen. When a funeral service leaves him shaken and questioning his sanity, the insidious power strands him in a land where the sky kills and earthquakes level cities. A land where the undead serve the living, and Necromancers summon warriors from ancient graves to fight in a war that spans life and afterlife. If Nicolas masters the Three Laws of Necromancy, he can use them to get home. But as he learns to raise and purify the dead-a process that makes him relive entire lifetimes in the span of a moment-the very power that could bring him home may also prevent his return. For the supreme religious leader, the Archmage Kagan, has outlawed Necromancy, and its practitioners risk torture and execution. As warring nations hunt Necromancers to extinction, countless dead in limbo await a purification that may never come. Nicolas's power could be his way home... Or it could save a world that wants him dead.

The Lucifer Priciple is a revolutionary work that explores the intricate relationships among genetics, human behavior, and culture to put forth the thesis that “evil” is a by-product of nature’s strategies for creation and that it is woven into our most basic biological fabric. In a sweeping narrative that moves lucidly among sophisticated scientific disciplines and covers the entire span of the earth’s, as well as mankind’s, history, Howard Bloom challenges some of our most popular scientific assumptions. Drawing on evidence from studies of the most primitive organisms to those on ants, apes, and humankind, the author makes a persuasive case that it is the group, or “superorganism,” rather than the lone individual that really matters in the evolutionary struggle. But, Bloom asserts, the prominence of society and culture does not necessarily mitigate against our most violent, aggressive instincts. In fact, under the right circumstances the mentality of the group will only amplify our most primitive and deadly urges. In Bloom’s most daring contention he draws an analogy between the biological material whose primordial multiplication began life on earth and the ideas, or “memes,” that define, give cohesion to, and justify human superorganisms. Some of the most familiar memes are utopian in nature—Christianity or Marxism; nonetheless, these are fueled by the biological impulse to climb to the top of the heirarchy. With the meme’s insatiable hunger to enlarge itself, we have a precise prescription for war. Biology is not destiny; but human culture is not always the buffer to our most primitive instincts we would like to think it is. In these complex threads of thought lies the Lucifer Principle, and only through understanding its mandates will we able to avoid the nuclear crusades that await us in the twenty-first century.
