The Devil’s Apprentice by Kenneth B. Andersen
About The Book
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.
If you have any preconceived idea about YA it’s time that you change it, it is as much as a genre as any other, you can like it or not, but I am sure that you’ll change your thoughts about it after reading “The Devil’s Apprentice”!
Can you imagine the perfect boy having to train to become the next “Lucifer”? That’s Phillip’s situation, he has died unexpectedly and now it seems that his path is to be the next Evil king. The only problem? That he is too good to be evil! He will have difficult decisions in his path and the “Evil’s” help will complicate everything, of course. So, don’t doubt that this will be a surprising read, unexpected and with some twists.
This is a dark but really original story, even if you don’t use to read sci-fi, this book will surprise you. The characters are really well described and you’ll feel empathy for Phillip and his “lost” cause, but sometimes the secondary characters feel that the reader should know a little bit more about them.
This is an easy read for any fiction lover, because when a book is good no matter the aged is addressed to, the words stand by themselves and everyone wants to read it, don’t you think?
The Devil’s Apprentice is for all of us, the good and the bad ones, because we all have good and bad inside us, and sometimes it’s good to remember it! 😉
About The Author
I was born in Denmark on a dark and stormy night in November 1976. I began writing when I was a teenager. My first book was a really awful horror novel titled Nidhug’s Slaves. It didn’t get published. Luckily. During the next 7 years, I wrote nearly 20 novels–all of which were rejected–while working as a school teacher. The rest of the time I spent writing.
In 2000 I published my debut fantasy book, ”The Battle of Caïssa”, and that’s when things really took off.
Since then I’ve published more than thirty-five books for teens and young adults in genres ranging from fantasy to horror and science fiction.
My books have been translated into more than 15 languages and my series about the superhero Antboy has been turned into three movies.
A musical of The Devil’s Apprentice opened in the fall 2018 and the movie rights for the series have also been optioned.
I live in Copenhagen with my wife, two boys, a dog named Milo and spiders in the basement.
