Premise

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.

Review (No Spoilers)

If you’ve been keeping up with my reviews, you’ll know that I’m participating in blog tours for the entire Great Devil War series. If you’ve fallen behind, you can catch my previous reviews here: The Devil’s Apprentice (#1) , The Die of Death (#2).

The Wrongful Death was probably the quickest book for me to read of the series so far which was good because as usual, I put things off until the last minute and started the book only a few days ago lol. My feelings on this book were very similar to the ones that I had for The Die of Death. I think that this series has a lot of interesting twists and turns but I wish that the sequels included more explanations of why things are the way they are since that was my favorite part about The Devil’s Apprentice.

My favorite part about The Wrongful Death was probably traveling to the different worlds. In the book, we have glimpses of Earth, Hell, Heaven, Hades, and Asgard. I really hope that these places (and more) will appear in the rest of the series because I enjoy meeting new godly characters. I also really enjoyed seeing more of Sam. He’s a character that I think has a lot of potential and I like the direction Kenneth B. Anderson is heading with him.

The blog tour for the next book in the series, The Angel of Evil, will probably be in May or June so stay tuned for more! This series seems to be getting more and more intense!
