According to ancient scripture, Lucifer was cast from heaven as a result of his disobedience and, in the process, gaining freedom for humankind. In Spain, local legends tell how, thousands of years ago, the fallen Archangel Lucifer appeared in an earthly body. As the Child of Light, he was rocked in a mysterious stone cradle by a woman from the East.

Seeking to uncover centuries-old secrets, Patrice Chaplin’s research into her book The Stone Cradle evolved naturally into Lucifer by Moonlight. According material she discovered, the rebellious archangel surfaced in the modern day—walking down dark streets and forever trying to make sense of his destiny. In London, he is seen as a man of exquisite taste and blinding charisma, habitually breaking hearts. Alternatively, as Lucie Fur, a high class hooker, he walks the streets of Kentish Town while trying to avoid his old enemy, the Elysium Fox from Thebes.

Chaplin—celebrated novelist and memoirist—takes us to the timeless Stone Cradle, where the old red-headed trickster, absorbing beams from the moon to feed his brilliance, lies waiting for his obligatory earthly reappearance. Could things turn out differently this time? Can his veneration of children and unexpected care for others change his fate? As Lucifer returns with his dying friend to the Stone Cradle, the morning light reveals the glories of Venus, the place for which he yearns. Will there be atonement—or even redemption—for the weary archangel’s past misdeeds?

Illustrated with color pictures by Melissa Scott-Miller, this imaginative new work is a thought-provoking fable for our time.
