Book Review: Origins by R.H. Hughes

The tale is about the creators and the inhabitants of heaven. So it happens that the Masters are the creators. And of all their creation, they extol the characteristics of Lucifer, Michael, Gabriel and a few. The Masters continually give these select archangels greater responsibilities and duties of high honour in heaven. However, the Masters possess a secret knowledge - that Lucifer will betray his brothers and bring a terrible war on the universe. Secretly, the creators begin to plan with trusted angels and set up the defences of heaven in anticipation of the war their enemy will unleash on them.

Origins” explores the fantasy realm of heaven, the creation of its government, and its ways of life. It also reveals the ties between the rulers and the subjects, though more of the text is dedicated to the development of the relationships among the powerful archangels. We also get to see how these heavenly beings grew into their given roles and how those roles changed them.

The book draws heavily on Christian, Jewish, and Greek mythology as a premise for the story. The style is surprisingly light-hearted and the language is free of fantasy jargons. This fact enables us to bond easily with the characters as we laugh with them, shed tear, and shake our fists in anger at the injustices and sufferings they endure.
