Part of the Sam Linnifer series
Sam Linnfer works part-time at a London university as a translator of obscure ancient texts.
He's a quiet chap with a few friends here and there, and an affection for cats.
He's also immortal and the Son of Time. In fact, you might know him better as Lucifer, the Devourer of Souls or the Devil. And with all the gods in Heaven about to go to war over ownership of Earth, you're going to be extremely glad he's not exactly the person legend makes him out to be - but that he does know how to handle a flaming sword ...The elder gods have risen.
The Firedancers have been called forth. The armies of Heaven and Hell are stirring. The ultimate battle has begun. To survive, Earth will need more than just sympathy for the devil...Waywalkers is the first volume in a stunning new series from teenaged sensation Catherine Webb.

Review by Scoshie
This was the 1st book i read of this wonderful author and she does a reat job of telling a story. Well worth the price--"Sam Linnfer works part time at a London University. He's a quiet chap. A few friends here and there. A real skill for ancient languages. And an affection for cats. He's also immortal and the Son of Time. You might know him better as Lucifer, Old Nick, or the Devil . And with all the Gods in Heaven about to go to war over ownership of Earth, you're going to be extremely glad he's not exactly the person history portrays him to be. Waywalkers is an absolutely stunning new novel. You'll come face to face with Jehovah on a cold Moscow night, walk the Ways between Earth and Heaven with Buddha, take a hair-raising cab ride with Adam (yes, THE Adam - only he's into denim now, rather than fig-leaves) and find yourself trusting the one person you never dreamed you would. In a war between Gods, where Earth is the battle ground and humans are expendable, you'll need to have more than just sympathy for the Devil."

I don't remember much about it, but I remember enjoying the tone. Catherine Webb has a very nice writing style and tone.
