PUBLISHERS BLURB 

An unfortunate chain of events makes Philip responsible for the untimely death of the school bully Sam—the Devil’s original choice for an heir. Philip must return to Hell to find Sam and bring him back to life, so that fate can be restored. But trouble is stirring in Lucifer’s kingdom and not even Philip can imagine the strange and dark journey that awaits him. A journey that will take him through ancient underworlds and all the way to Paradise. 

The Wrong Death is volume 3 of The Great Devil War series.

MY REVIEW 

In The Wrongful Death, Philip is now settled with his role in Hell, but now is able to come and go.

But when Sam (who Philip had been mistaken for in Book 1 and is the reason he is now Satan’s right hand man) accidentally arrives in Hell the mayhem begins.

Satan is busy with Hell’s ‘issues’ and wants Philip to find Sam……

There’s mystery, intrigue, betrayal and even a visit to Heaven. With humour and great characters this is another great read from Kenneth B. Andersen and I’m already looking forward to Book 4.

MY REVIEW 

Set in Hell, this is the tale of Philip, a young boy who is learning to be the Devil’s successor. He had been taken by mistake, but the Devil decided he’d do.

When Death’s die goes missing ( How can Death decide who’s time it is to die without it?) So, the Devil tasks Philip with finding it….

This is such a fun read, it has everything. There’s menace, fear, the macabre and humour all in a marvellously dark world. I loved it and can’t wait for book 3.

The Devils Apprentice by Kenneth B. Andersen – Book Review

F42C2521-3E3A-42BE-8E52-F7E74CE3863A
PUBLISHERS BLURB 

Philip is a good boy, a really good boy, who accidentally gets sent to Hell to become the Devil’s heir. The Devil, Lucifer, is dying and desperately in need of a successor, but there’s been a mistake and Philip is the wrong boy. Philip is terrible at being bad, but Lucifer has no other choice than to begin the difficult task of training him in the ways of evil. Philip gets both friends and enemies in this odd, gloomy underworld—but who can he trust, when he discovers an evil-minded plot against the dark throne?

The Devil’s Apprentice is volume 1 in The Great Devil War-series.

MY REVIEW 

Philip is 13 years old, he’s a good young man, he’s also the victim of the school bully Sam. Hiding in the school basement, he is rescued from Sam by the janitor, but Sam says he’ll get him another time.

On his way home, he rescues a cat….who he is sure said Thankyou! 

The Sam pushes him into the road and Philip wakes up in Hell. It must be a mistake, a demon agrees, but Satan decides he needs an heir and Philip is it.

Can Philip learn to be bad? 

A clever fantasy tale of good and evil….it also makes you think what is Evil? From a while lie to murder, is it just degrees of evil? Do we need evil so that we can be the opposite? A fun, entertaining read.
