The first three books, The Fall of Lucifer, Messiah - The First Judgment and Son of Perdition were published in 2006, 2007 and 2009, respectively,[1] with the fourth book, A Pale Horse set to be released in January 2012. Alec plans a further three books and a film project which is currently in the early stages of development.

Alec was recently interviewed on ‘Chronicles of Brothers’ by the producers of the behind the screens documentary accompanying the 5th season of Warner Brothers TV Series‘Supernatural’.

Idea Behind the Chronicles

The epic fantasy series Chronicles of Brothers begins at the inception of time and traces three Archangel brothers Michael, Gabriel and Lucifer's harrowing journey from the idyllic world of their Palace Chambers in the First Heaven through to Lucifer's ultimate banishment with his Fallen Host to Perdition.

The Fall of Lucifer

Jim MacDonald of 1340 mag.com sums up the plot of the first book in the Chronicles of Brothers series as follows: "The Fall of Lucifer of revolves around three archangelic brothers. Michael, Gabriel and Lucifer serve Yehovah, each commanding a third of his angelic host. They live a life both of service and joy, until Yehovah makes a decision Lucifer cannot abide. The decision to make a new creation. A creation built upon Yehovah's own genetic code."[2]

GP Taylor author of Shadowmancer has described The Fall of Lucifer as “a plot that leaves Da Vinci Code in the shade.” Clem Jackson of the Christian Marketplace, London, UK writes: “This is quite simply the best piece of thriller fiction, I've read in a long time.” [3]

Jim MacDonald says: “This is the best work of fiction I have read since the last installment of Dean Koontz Frankenstein series. Alec is obviously a master of the fantasy genre.” [4]

Messiah - The First Judgment

Son of Perdition

In an interview with 'The Voice' e-zine Wendy Alec describes The Son of Perdition as "a character-driven drama about three brothers from an inordinately wealthy Illuminati family against a backdrop of the Angelic and the vast landscape of the Book of Revelation." [5]

A Pale Horse

  3. ^ Jackson, Clem, "Having bemoaned the lack of good quality Christian fiction from the UK The Fall of Lucifer landed on my desk and my plea was answered. This is quite simply the best piece of thriller fiction I’ve read in a long time. Already into its second reprint, the High Street stores are shifting it fast – and so should the Christian retail trade too. This is only the first in a series of six novels and charts the demise of Lucifer, the Prince Regent of Heaven, due to his insane jealousy of a new species created by Yehovah, the human race. It tells of what happened when Lucifer fell and became Satan, King of the second heaven and ruler of the race of men and how his brothers, Michael and Gabriel had to deal with the fall of their much-beloved brother. This is a real page-turner and kept me gripped throughout; it’s one I will read again. Bring on the next in the series, The Messiah.", Christian Marketplace, UK, August 2006.
  4. ^ MacDonald, Jim, "The front cover of Wendy Alec's 'The Fall of Lucifer' says everything you need to know about this novel. Under the title the words 'an epic novel' appear, an accurate description of this gripping tale. The Fall of Lucifer is indeed nothing short of epic. Opening with the wonders of heaven, Alec creates vivid landscapes and enthralling, emotional plots. The author is obviously a master of the fantasy genre. The Fall of Lucifer is book one of the Chronicles of Brothers. The plot revolves around three archangelic brothers. Michael, Gabriel and Lucifer serve Yehovah, each commanding a third of his angelic host. They live a life both of service and joy, until Yehovah makes a decision Lucifer cannot abide. The decision to make a new creation. A creation built upon Yehovah's own genetic code. I think most people are familiar with the Christian idea of the origin of Satan. The Fall of Lucifer uses this as the basis of its plot, and it is indeed an intriguing subject. The wonder of this book is often not the plot, but the emotional interplay between characters. How do Michael and Gabriel cope with the defection of their angelic brother? How does Yehovah himself react to an act of treason? The emotional interplay between angelic and demonic characters in the realms of heaven, hell and Earth drew me into this book, capturing my interest in a way few books have recently. This is the best work of fiction I have read since the last installment of Dean Koontz Frankenstein series. I am generally afraid of Christian fiction. Too often the plot is pushed aside in order to address the theological issues behind the writer's intent. "The Fall of Lucifer" does indeed contain a fair amount of Christian doctrine, and even quotations from scripture. Wendy Alec has tied this into the plot so well that the storyline never stops moving. While I was led to see the author's spiritual views at several points in the book, never did this detract from the plot or the emotional tone of the story. The Fall of Lucifer is among the best fiction I have read. This book grabbed my attention in the first few pages, and I was unable to turn away until I had read the final words. I am anxiously awaiting book two in the Chronicles of Brothers. It's been a long time since I've read a book so engrossing that it kept me awake at night. This intricate, imaginative, thought provoking fantastic adventure is just that kind of book.", 1340Mag.com.
