Good Versus Evil
The Angel of Evil
by Kenneth B. Andersen
Nothing will ever be the same. Satina is gone, kidnapped by the enemy. Disobeying Lucifer, Philip heads out to find her, journeying into the deep darkness of Outer Reach. But nothing can prepare Philip for the horror that awaits—or the demons he will face.
Meanwhile, Lucifer’s kingdom is threatened as the Great Devil War draws closer. All Hell is about to break loose.
The Angel of Evil is volume 4 of The Great Devil War series.
The Angel of Evil by Kenneth B. Anderson is the fourth installment in The Great War series. As The Great War series progresses and much like the Harry Potter series, the overall theme and tones of the story become much darker, this is great because there is no stagnation. The protagonist of the story is Phillip Engel. At the beginning of the series, Phillip was an impressionable young kid. He was good in every sense of the word—right to the point of naivete. But now we have a Phillip that has aged and become more experienced. At the end of the last book, we have some plot twists in Satina being kidnapped. Phillip needs to go into the lion’s den and try and save Satina and save hell. It is an exciting direction for the story, and the dark fantasy elements are welcome.
Pacing in this story is breakneck. From the very start, the story is moving. Phillip is on a quest from the first page. It is a testament to Anderson’s excellent writing that the pacing never faltered and maintained a steady stream from moment to moment.
The Great War Series is one of those series where I can’t wait to get to the next book. It is an excellent series taken as a whole, but even if you are starting with The Angel of Evil, you will be entertained. It has excellent characters, pacing, narrative structure, and dynamic dialog. I recommend it.

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.
