To Reign in Hell, by Steven BrustRead about another entry on the list.
Heavily inspired by Milton’s Paradise Lost, Brust recreates the story of Satan’s revolt in heaven with a reimagining that casts Yahweh as merely the greatest among equals who have created a fortress of order against chaos—known as Heaven. Heaven is not impervious, however, and is destroyed several times, prompting Yahweh, who declares himself god, to propose the creation of a second stronghold: Earth. Satan, tasked with compelling angels to sacrifice themselves in order to bring Yahweh’s vision to fruition, doubts the new deity’s right to demand so much from other angels, and slowly moves towards open rebellion. For his trouble, he is cast out, forming his own third fortress against chaos: Hell.
