The Devil’s Apprentice (The Great Devil War 1) by Kenneth B. Andersen (Book Review #598)

The Devil’s apprentice is a young adult fantasy about a boy named Philip who gets sent to hell to act as the Devil’s heir. Philip is a nice boy, and he has to be bad. In a world where it is against his own core feeling, he has to now come to terms with his fate, and that is when the story takes an exciting journey.

The story is written in the third person narrative. Philip is only 13 and has a rich backstory where he lives with mom and has lost his father at a young age as he has to go through training in order to take Lucifer’s place. The literature was fun and written at a fast pace. Everything takes place as an adventure, and it’s a good story.


I believe, when writing books for children, you need to not only be able to think the way they do but also see the way they imagine things. Only then can you really write something that appeals to their nature and is equally successful in it. For this reason, I strongly recommend this author and his work.


The story is unique in the form the protagonist is always the hero or the one that is trying to do the proper thing. Here we have a boy that has to be trained to be bad and do evil. I found this to be very appealing and different.


I look forward to reading more from this author and recommend this book to young adult fantasy fans and children’s fantasy readers.
