This imaginative, dark fantasy explores the innate depravity in the hearts of men.
Sergey Mavrodi’s dark fantasy, Lucifer’s Son: The Temptation Chronicles, Book One, lays bare the depravity of the human heart as everyday men make bargains with the devil to obtain their desires.
Composed of a series of vignettes, the book is united both by theme and by the presence of a prescient, mysterious man in his thirties who offers to fulfill each protagonist’s deepest wish—an “opportunity” that comes with conditions that would be totally unacceptable were it not for the lust, greed, and desire for power already lurking in each man’s heart.
With this imaginative, dark book in which Lucifer’s work is made easy by the innate depravity of man, Mavrodi easily defends his thesis that “a grain of evil seed was sown in Adam’s heart from the beginning.

Sergei Panteleevich Mavrodi was born on August 11, 1955 in Moscow, Russia, where he graduated from both: school # 35 and Serov V.A. art school # 1, simultaneously.
He was a multiple winner of the most prestigious school Olympiads in physics and mathematics, champion of Moscow in combat Sambo in the absolute weight category with his own weight of 62 kg. Throughout his career he did not lose a single fight.
Furthermore, he graduated from the Moscow Institute of electronic engineering, receiving a degree in “artificial intelligence”.
After the graduation he experimented with a lot of professions, thus his latest job was a night watchman of “Sviblovo” metro station.
In 1989, upon the occurrence of the thaw period he created MMM cooperative and soon became one of the most famous and successful businessmen of Russia.
In the year 1993 he was the only one who openly opposed the privatization that started in those times, saying that it was a real robbery of the country, and that he would spare all efforts to prevent it. In the same year, on the basis of the cooperative he created the joint-stock company MMM. The plan was simple: to accumulate people’s money, buy up all state property on the money auctions held at that moment, and distribute among the shareholders. Less than six months MMM encompassed already about 15 million members, and Mavrodi himself controlled more than one third of the country’s budget.
At that point, he was arrested on a completely absurd charge of tax evasion (the criminal case later fell to pieces), and all cash budget of the company was seized and disappeared to an undisclosed location. In particular, only from the head office of MMM authorities took out 17 truckloads of money.
Straight from prison Mavrodi registered as a candidate for Deputy in the State Duma of the Russian Federation at the special election in one of the districts. In this regard he was released. He easily won election with a huge margin and became Deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation. After a year on almost-unanimous decision of deputies he was stripped of his deputy powers (the first case in the history of Russia).
In 2003 Mavrodi was arrested again and placed in the federal special prison #99/1, the gloomiest and obscure institution of modern Russia. Sharing his cell with professional killers, maniacs, terrorists and criminal lords, he went on 15 hunger strikes (one of them was dry and lasted for 8 days) and countless punishment cells (he was even released from the disciplinary cell).
In the year 2007 Mavrodi was released.
The novel “Lucifer’s Son” was written by Sergei Mavrodi while in the federal special prison #99/1.
