Some people would categorize The Victory Perspective by E.J. Kellett as religious; others might call it daring. I call it very creative and ingenious! It might not be one of the most original ideas, but the approach, the story line and the plot are something entirely new to me. I have read many novels that tackle the beginning of mankind, or angels and gods and the presence of an omnipotent being, but none of them have come this far or this close to being entertaining. Writing in a modern tone, the author takes on a story older than time itself and simply brings something new to the table.
The story begins when our five main characters wake up from whatever state they were. Alpha, Gabriel, Lucifer, Michael and Raphael all awaken to find themselves in a place that is nothing less than paradise. They live in harmony for some time, but when one of them soon develops the power to create things with his thoughts, he takes this opportunity to create a world of his own where he would be the god and people would pray to him and praise him. This simple act disrupts the friendship and the relationship between these five characters. What happens next has been discussed countless times, yet not like this. Who is this character with his omniscience? Can he coexist with his four other companions or is it the end of paradise?
Fast paced and developed to evoke questions in the minds of readers, the story is handled with care and a lot of attention. Do I wish some parts were written a little differently? Yes. Do I want E.J. Kellett to change them? No. Why? Because this is something terrifyingly new and interesting! The way he portrayed Alpha, Gabriel, Lucifer, Michael and Raphael was almost human and the development was simply stunning. In the beginning they were like infants, discovering little pleasures and becoming used to it. Then they developed to become teenagers who rebelled and fought, but found themselves nonetheless. And then they became adults with responsibility, accepting their rights and wrongs and dealing with the consequences. This is definitely one of the most interesting novels I have read so far this year and I have read plenty. Simply fantastic!
