“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.”
“The Wrong Death is volume 3 of The Great Devil War series.”
My Review of The Wrongful Death:
Philip finds himself back in the presence of Lucifer after a misunderstanding and a tragic accident. However, this time, we don’t just get to see Hell or Death’s strange home, but we get to visit the Garden of Eden and Hades as well. I am always surprised by how much the author can describe these places and make you want to visit them as well.
Who in the world would want to visit Hell? Well, after this series, I do.
We also get introduced to some new characters, such as Hercules and Adam and Eve. Kenneth Andersen has a way of explaining religious content in a way that makes you think. His worlds are the same as what you may believe, but at the same time completely different from anything you have ever learned about Heaven and Hell. The meaning that Andersen puts forth in this world and with the characters is profound, and I have decided that I want to live in Andersen’s worlds as opposed to what I have learned in Sunday School.
I have one complaint about the book, but it could be written up to a cultural difference, but I feel that Satina is too young to be nude in the same bed with Philip. I mean, Philip is supposed to be in the eighth grade. In my part of the world, this is roughly 13 years old. I am having a hard time wrapping my head around that one. However, nothing happens apart from her lying in bed with him, and Philip is wearing clothes. They do steal some kisses throughout the book, but those are innocent and perfectly in line with a teenage relationship.
That one little bump in a story that is as phenomenal as this one does nothing to my rating, and I award The Wrongful Death a full 5 out of 5 stars. If you have been following along with this blog, you will have seen the reviews for the first two books. If you haven’t seen them, you can find them here: The Devil’s Apprentice and The Die of Death.
I would like to thank the author, Kenneth B. Andersen, for gifting me a copy of The Wrongful Death in exchange for an honest review.
