My name is Alex Holden, and I’m the Antichrist. It’s not like I had a choice. My father is the devil and I’m supposed to help him cause the Apocalypse, but I want nothing to do with it. What I want is to be free of him, to hang out with my demigod friends and my cat, Mew-Mew.

What happens when the son of Satan, Alex Holden, decides that he wants no part in his fate to bring on the end of the world? All Hell Breaks loose.
In this story we meet Alex Holden, the Anti-Christ. He is still a teenager being home schooled by his Satanist mother and step father. Alex is fully aware of his fate, and who his real father is and he wants no part of it.
Not My Apocalypse is a modern mythological tale that blends Greek, Norse mythology with Christian Deities.

A fun teen demigod saves the world book

Three times, actually!

He and his friends, all half gods/angels and half human, rush about trying to do what the full ones won't/can't do. They succeed in many wondrous ways.

A YA novella about teen demigods. It's not a bad story as far as it goes. The book is about 2000 locations on a kindle.

Two criticisms: The first is that the book jumps right into the story on page 1 without introducing any of the characters, building up any background on them or creating any empathy for them with the reader. It needed to slow down just a bit and make us care about Alex and his friends.

The second is the use of the word 'f*ck'. It's everywhere. It appears multiple times a page. No

I'm on the fence about how many stars to give this book. There were some slightly interesting explorations of morality, which were handled pretty gracefully. The action was fairly standardized and video-game-esque, but not terrible. There was a ton of profanity, so much that it intruded a little into my reading experience (not the dialog so much, but the narration itself), but it wasn't offensive, just annoying. In short, the book was a middle-of-the-road teenage adventure. I'm sure many people ...more

Very entertaining

This book was a mix between Percy Jackson and Sandman Slim which I love!! It had a great amount of action. And the swearing made it hilarious. It's not for everyone, but certainly for me.

I love fantasy stories, but I could not get into this one. I tried to read it two different times. It could not hold my interest. The amount of cursing was a little much as well.

Devin Harnois has several published novels and he’d have more if he spent less time on Twitter and playing Dragon Age. Most of his books involve magic, monsters, and hope. They're also getting progressively more queer. He collects skull items and only a strong will prevents his apartment from being overrun by them.

In second grade he wrote his first story, a romance about two mice falling in love.
