Serien om Den Store Djævlekrig sluttede i 2010, da 4. bind Ondskabens engel udkom. Det var hovedpersonen Filip Engells og mit endegyldige farvel til Helvede, og det var ikke meningen, at nogen af os skulle vende tilbage. Krigen var udkæmpet, og historien var slut.

Men kort tid efter sidste bind var udkommet, dukkede der en ide op. Til noget, der måske kunne være en ny mulig

I have to say that I feel like this is the best one out of the series. It has an ending I wasn't expecting and keeps you hooked through the entire book. I can't wait for book six to come out! ...more

I’m finding it quite difficult to review this one. I have loved this series since book one, as can be seen from my previous reviews (1, 2, 3, 4). I enjoyed book 4 so much that I jumped straight into this one, I normally don’t do that reading at least one book in between, and perhaps this is why I didn’t enjoy this one as much as the others.

At the end of book 4 we are told that the next time Philip dies it will be the last time, but it was pretty obvious that this wouldn’t be the case later. Two

After the ending of the previous book, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but Phillip gets back to Hell. I was a little worried about him considering how the last book ended. If you remember, in The Angel of Evil, he was warned that he couldn’t go back and forth anymore and I knew there was going to be book six to conclude the series, so this couldn’t be his final death.

This time around, Philip is brought back to Hell by Jehova, but nobody knows why. In the first half or more of the book, we see Phil

Opinions: "If the fifth and sixth books of this series are just as distinguished, we're going to have a new "best series" superlative on our hands!" Me, reviewing The Angel of Evil

Ladies and gentlemen, we are looking very good. So far, each book of "The Great Devil War" series has deserved a full 5/5 star rating for Andersen's magical and immersive writing style, the long-term character development, and a distinct, informed realm!

Another fantastic instalment in this excellent series. Dark, witty and adventurous, this book maintains the same epic emotions of the previous books while still giving some more shocking twists!

A massive thank you to the author Kenneth B Andersen for the review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, I am thrilled to have been given the chance to continue this series!

The Fallen Angel is the fifth installment in The Great Devil War series, and also the second last one. Like with all of the previous books in the series, I flew through it and enjoyed it a lot, yet I did found it slightly... lacking in plot.

Philip finds himself back in Hell, though he was told during his last visit he won't be able to go back and forth anymore. This time he's needed by Jehovah, t

The fifth book in the series. I love that we get to see how Phillip is doing with his life - at least after everything he went through in book four, I am not surprised that he isn't doing that well.
Again he is thrown back to Hell. However, no one is really sure why he has been called down there - also we all thought that it wasn't possible for him to come back without dying.
Phillip gets to see all his old friends again. He starts on a journey to Paradise - sees his father.

Tessa (Talks Books)
In Book 5, the war is over, and eight years have passed (that's 1.5 years in mortal earth time). The story finds Philip in a bad place, emotionally.
Though, through a strange chain of events, he is summoned back to the afterworld, this time by Jehovah himself. Jesus has gone missing, and Jehovah needs Philip to help solve the mystery of the disappearance and bring Jesus back to the Garden of Eden.

I found this installment to be much more emotional. Philip is not the same boy I have grown to love

A cliff-hanger ending that will take your breath away I received an ARC copy from the author but that has in no way influenced my review, which I freely chose to write.
I have been following The Great Devil War, since the first novel, The Devil’s Apprentice, and loved it. I must confess I easily lose patience with series, so that’s saying something. I’m pleased to report that I enjoyed this instalment too, and I can’t wait for the 6th and last part, although I’m sure I’ll miss the characters once

Before I go into my review I just wanted to say that the cliffhanger ending in this book should be absolutely illegal. What was that?! I'm so sad that the book ended when it did because I was just starting to really feel everything that was happening and then... The end. No. Just... No. This should not be allowed! 😂😭

So with that out of the way, you can definitely say that I enjoyed the last 20% of the book the most! I was very curious to see what happens in this book after the extremely action p

This book continues with what I’ve loved so much throughout the series so far. Andersen does an amazing job at creating and evolving his characters, to make them feel real. Their decisions feel like they actually have weight in a world I can imagine being in. Not that I’d love to be in Hell, but it’s fascinating to see how the world has changed and grown over the years.

Philip is still dealing with the consequences of his actions – has been doing so, alone, since his return. Everything he thought

What I Liked
- The darker tone of this book, which reflects the change in Phillip. Despite Hell filled with people he loved and being a place where Phillip felt like he belong, he still did terrible things and the effects are pretty dark. Phillip’s experiences in hell, the things he saw, done, and understood have really changed him and I’m glad we got to see how the trauma manifests in him. It’s really rare we see the impact of ev

Usually when authors decide to restart a series it comes off super awkward. This series really just embraced it and didn't care. Some of the best provoking literature I've read. Definitly one of the favourite books I've been forced to read in school. ...more

Thank you to Kenneth B. Andersen for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review!

After The Angel of Evil, I wasn't sure where the story was headed but after finishing this book, I am excited to continue with the next and final installment!

The Fallen Angel has a very interesting start/premise but the middle drags quite a bit. The ending (at around 80%) was where it finally picked up for me. I'm mostly interested to see where this new side of Philip takes him (though I miss my young

Definitely a dark book and one with adult themes. Philip fights the dark in himself while still trying to do the right thing and solve the mystery of cloaked lady. The book combines the angst of teenage hormones and the troubles of Hell which still follow Phillip. There is plenty of mystery and action in this book as well as soul searching and humanity. The ending was not unexpected and a bit of a cliff hanger. You will need the next book to resolve the story.

I really enjoyed this and raced through it as I wanted to see what happened to Philip in this book.
A brilliant fast paced opening and an intense finish - I did find the middle chapters a little slow paced and not what I had come to expect. But, maybe that is a good thing too as characters and plot were filled in and fleshed out a little more.
Would really recommend this series to all fans of fantasy and action packed genres.

I was cautious when starting The Fallen Angel. Book four had a sense of finality about it; it had come to a natural conclusion. I was worried that book five would feel it was dragging, spinning out the story for the sake of staying with much-loved characters

To my relief – and delight – I was completely wrong.

Book five picks up a year or so since we left Philip (back on Earth after making the choice to return to the living). He’s struggling to move on: his place in Hell was somewh

Thank you to the author for sending me an eARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I read the first book in this series last year and absolutely loved it. Since then I have been lucky enough to continue on with the series and participate in blog tours for each of the books. While I haven't loved any of them as much as I loved the first one I am continuously drawn into the story because the authors world building is on another level in my opinion.

What a joy it is to be brought back to a universe, which you have enjoyed immensely throughout your childhood. The devilishly humorous tone of this book mixed with solid world-building and re-introductions to the wonderful characters, Kenneth has created, takes you right back. The element of visceral, non-forced nostalgia, the book throws at you, is probably the main reason why I enjoyed this book. Not the only one, I might add, for the mystery itself, the core of the plot, was nicely twisted an ...more

The book was good, Kenneth was always so good at twisting everything up in the story about Filip, but i had hoped that it was a new villain, and not just Aziel coming back, even though i thought Aziels and Filips relationship is intense and very complex in the last few books, but i was perfectly fine with him being dead dead. The other thing that bothers me is that i think Satina should be a little more hard to get, she has been dating Dagon for three years and the second fil

This book was so damn interesting! The series continues and it's more interesting than ever. I like the whole mystery, I love the way it all comes together, all the things that seemed off, all the clues, it all makes sense in the end. I can't wait to read the last book! ...more

An unexpected plot twist. A cliffhanger that surprisingly makes me want to read the next book. (I'm not a fan of danish books, you see) An intriguing story.
The only problem I had with it, though, or at least of what I can remember right now, was that the first half of the book was slow and slightly dull tbh, as it kept going on about how Filip regretted his choice.

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
