Udmærket, men jeg kunne bedre lide første bind i serien.

When I reviewed the first book in this series for Rosie’s Book Review Team, the author was kind enough to send me the second. There are, at least for the moment, four more to come (you can check them in the author’s website), and I, for starters, I’m looking forward to them.
The second book in the series picks up where the first one left, a few months after the protagonist, Philip visited Hell, and we see what has happened to him when he went back to life. Things are looking up for him. He has ma

3.5 - ikke helt ligeså god som den første, men jeg glæder mig alligevel til at læse mere om Filips eventyr i Helvede.

Druhý díl - člověk už není překvapený, co si autor dovolí v knize určené primárně pro děti, na druhou stranu nové postavy a svižný děj

I read this book for the first time in 2010, and reread it this year (november 2018).
I really liked how the world in the story is expanded. It was a very interesting and fascinating theme and situation that was created in the book.

Man behøver ikke engang have åbnet Dødens terning for at vide at Filip vendte tilbage til livet efter sit eventyr i Helvede, men når man bladrer op på første side af denne bog, er man med det samme tilbage i Filips verden og ser den gennem hans øjne. På forunderlig vis virker det ikke sært eller underligt at Døden pludselig banker på døren og beder om hjælp, men man drages i stedet for ind i dagligdag hvor den slags er noget (næsten) helt naturligt.
På samme måde bliver man opslugt af både gamle

Jeg var ret glad for det første bind, så jeg var ret spændt på om to’eren kunne leve op til mine forventninger. Det kunne den sagtens.

Jeg elsker altså Kenneth Bøgh Andersen skrivestil. Den er dejlig let og jeg lever mig virkelig ind i hele verdenen. Han har en god sans for humor som han formår at få ned på papiret. Og så bare det at han har fantasien til at skabe hele den verden. Jeg er virkelig imponeret.

Philips nærdødsoplevelser er ret sjove at læse om. Okay, det kan godt være det bare er mig

"Værre?" Filip rystede på hovedet. "Hvad er værre end døden?"
"Jeg troede, du havde hørt efter, Filip. Der findes masser af ting, der er værre end døden." En fejende armbevægelse præsenterede de mange timeglas, hvor sandet løb både op og ned. "Evigt liv, blandt andet."


Filip kaldes tilbage til underverdenen igen, fordi dødens terning er blevet stjålet, og blandt menneskene breder udødeligheden sig. Sammen med Satina skal han forsøge at finde tyven og skaffe terningen tilbage.
Som i den første bog

You know...
I was completely in trance from reading the first book of "Den Store Djævlekrig", and thought that number two would be just as good and exciting, but I was clearly wrong. It really wasn't that much better than the books I read at the age of five, due to the fact, that it's not that exciting, and not much action happens. It's more of a book of fact, as if the reader needs to know a lot of information about the world etc. before the reader could understand the third book.
Yeah, reall

Actual rating 3.5 stars

Endnu en smuk bog i serien. Og man, hvor var de sidste hundrede sider intense! Desværre synes jeg at Dødens Terning manglede noget af den smukke symbolik 1'eren havde, og jeg kedede mig fra tid til anden. Selvom jeg uden tvivl vil færdiggøre denne serie, er det mere tydeligt at mærke i denne bog, hvilken målgruppe forfatteren havde i tankerne.

Still a page-turner but Kenneth Bøgh Andersens devil-universe seems to lack coherence and logic. However, it is still an action-packed novel and it is no wonder that young danish fantasy readers like this book. I will still read the next book.
Nicoiscryingwords
Well, I loved the first book of the series, but this one? Not so much. I had to force myself to finish this book. I love Kenneth's writing, the plot was just rather boring compared to the first book. I'll continue on the series, but I really hope the next is better. (:

Not as good as the first one nor as good as the first time around. However still a great read. Still it is true to his demonoic style.

This book was better than the first book, because of the action. But I still found it predictable. But not as much as the first book. I would totally recommend it!

just as great as the first of the series although a bit more complicated and challenging, which is awesome. Surprising ending that leaves one speculating what will happen next.

I think it`s so cool that a danish writer can write so good. There is some funny stories, even though it`s about the death and hell. ...more

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 boo
