Another Amazing Story in The Great War
The Wrongful Death
by Kennneth B. Andersen
“A dangerous place to get lost, the dark ghost finally muttered when nothing happened. It turned around and slithered like a shapeless snake through the trees. Follow me.”―
Kenneth B. Andersen, The Wrongful Death
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.

Again, Kenneth B. Andersen has written an exciting story.
Phillip was getting along pretty good on the alive side of things. He was making friends and finding a balance between being 100% good and 100% bad. But through an accident, Sam winds up in Hell, and it is Phillip’s fault. What transpires is exciting, and includes some of the great characters from history. How is he going to help Sam?
Furthermore, hell is in peril. Many demons, new to mortality after the last book, have abandoned Hell for the outer reach and are gathering together. Something is afoot; a war is brewing.
“I saved her, he thought and hoped the nightmare would leave him alone tonight. Gradually, he felt himself overcome by sleep. I saved her.”―
Kenneth B. Andersen, The Wrongful Death
There is a lot of cool plot movement in this book and the series in general. Firstly, the overall tone of the story is darker and more adult. The writing is moving apace with Phillip as he gets older. Also, Phillip is dealing with more adult situations and is showing the kind of man he is becoming. Also, Phillip’s relationship with Satina is maturing, and Satina is fleshing out to be a great supporting character. It is excellent how Andersen is pulling everything together and creating characters that readers can enjoy and appreciate.
Again, I recommend this series to YA readers. Andersen has done a great job crafting something unique in this book and the series in general. The protagonist, Phillip, is a likable character that the reader can empathize with. The supporting characters are help carry the story forwards and bring a dimension to the story that would have been missing had they been caricatures of devils. All and all, this was a great addition to the series, and I look forward to the next one.

About the Author
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 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 opens 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.
About THE GREAT DEVIL WAR: The Great Devil War was published in Denmark from 2005-2016, beginning with The Devil’s Apprentice.
Even though the story (mostly) takes place in Hell and deals with themes like evil, death and free will, it is also a humoristic tale about good and evil seen from a different perspective. A tale that hopefully will make the reader – young or old, boy or girl – laugh and think.
