Many thanks to Shannon and R & R Book Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.

A book which can transport me from the realities of my life is certainly a book to faze at in wonderment. This book did that, the only fact which made it all the more fun was that the book transported me to the realms of Hell!! With Lucifer as its King!! Oh boy, was I in for a rocking ride.

A mistaken identity, and Philip was taken in to Hell by the hands of Death instead of Sam, a bully at his school. Lucifer was dying, and he needed a Heir to succeed the throne. Philip was it! The boy who has done only good through his entire life. He became The Devil’s Apprentice, and that started his entire journey of transformation to evil with horns and wings. A sudden reveal of the truth and the need to be true to himself placed him at the crossroads. What would he do now?

My first book by Kenneth B. Anderson saw me hurrying through this book, the author was a great spinner of tales. The entire world in this story was Hell, every nuance was touched upon. The kids even went to school. The detailing was quite amazing with a vast array of characters. Some of whom touched my heart. They were not all bad, just a bit of tricksters.

Philip as the boy who was soon seduced by evil was interesting to read. The reason why he gave in, was slightly clichéd. The devil did use the oldest trick in the book. Ah well, that was Hell. The story traversed between different layers of good vs evil, villains and heroes, goodness vs plain old wickedness. The characters were varied and not all of them were black or white. Many had shades of gray.

The devil in me did bring out the niggles, more thrill and more depth to the world building would bring out the various colors shading it. But this was book 1 in the series. I would assume it would only improve.

Overall, the book kept me enraptured by the vagaries of the world and its characters unfurling before my eyes. A fun breakfast read, indeed.

I WAS BORN IN DENMARK ON A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT IN NOVEMBER 1976 …
… and 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 children 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 adapted for film, which is available on Netflix. An animated tv series is currently in development.

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.

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?
