Welcome to a world like no other!
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.
Lucifer has no other choice than to begin the difficult task of training Philip in the ways of evil. Philip is terrible at being bad, but when he falls in love with the she-devil Satina and experiences the powerful forces of love and jealousy, the task becomes much easier.
Philip finds 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 Great Devil War is a gripping and humorous tale about good and evil seen from a different perspective, making the reader laugh and think. It’s filled with biblical and historical characters and set in a world beyond your wildest dreams. Or nightmares …
I do enjoy a good YA book and when the opportunity to read and review as part of a blog tour arrived I jumped at the chance.
Philip who is a very good boy, but finds he is sent to Hell to become the Devil’s heir. Unfortunately they have been sent the wrong boy. Lucifer, the Devil is dying so finds he has no choice but to try and convert the angelic Philip into a devil.
I found this to be a fun and engaging story. With a wealth of characters I enjoyed reading about the dilemmas that Philip was faced with and the troubles Lucifer had trying to turn Philip bad.
Will Philip succumb to the darkness?
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.
You can buy The Devil’s Apprentice from the following booksellers (and obviously many more! Support your local booksellers where you can!)
