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.

How I read this: Free ebook copy received through blog tour

The Angel of Evil seems very different from the others in the series. Right from the end of book 3, it’s been clear that the story would take a darker, more mature turn – and it did. Where it was playful before, now even demons say, you shouldn’t have such a dark outlook at the world. Even they think Philip’s become too much like a demon – more so even than real demons. Because they know it’s simply their job, their nature – but for Phil

The Angel of Evil is the fourth installment of the Devil War series. The young Phillip Engel, our main character of the series, is growing to be quite the devil boy... or kid, or young man. Honestly, I’m a little lost at how old he is now. There are a few scenes that I feel like he’s older than others. But, that’s okay because time is different as you alter your existence from Earth to Hell and even the occasional stay in Heaven. He has a way of looking outside the box and solving myst

Thanks a ton, Dave from @TheWriteReads and the author-Kenneth B. Andersen, for giving me this opportunity and providing me with a free e-book copy of ‘The Angel of Evil’ on exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion.

There’s so much going on in the underworlds this time. Philip’s love for his dearest ones has metamorphosed him into a young and cold devil boy. He has grown two huge shiny horns, a pair of mammoth

Holy shirtballs, that was one heckuva ride from start to finish! This one actually managed to make me a little teary eyed towards the end because it was pretty bitter sweet, but I obviously won't go into spoiler territory so I'll leave it at that.

I'm now more than sure that my favourite version of Philip is Devil Philip but **important distinction** I like the Devil Philip that still has a conscience; the one who's willing to do not-so-good things to protect and help the people he loves

You know you’re reading a fantastic series when the books just keep getting better. I’m not sure how Kenneth B. Anderson keeps topping himself, but he does. The latest installment, The Angel of Evil, is the best book in the series yet, which is saying something since they’ve all been 5 star reads for me.

The plotline is complex and me trying to give you an overview when you can just read the blurb is a bit of a waste. Basically, you need to read this series and you need to read it in order. This

When last we left Philip, Satina had been kidnapped by his (and Lucifer’s) arch enemy, Aziel and taken her to the Outer Reach and the ruins of Enoch where he has created his New Hell. Philip is determined to get her back but Lucifer has forbidden it. Too bad for Lucifer that Philip has his own plan.

Philip has changed since we first met him in book 1. Changed quite a lot. In this installment of The Great Devil War Philip has to go to great lengths and risk endangering himself to

OK, if you've read this far you know how book 3 ended. Satina is gone, kidnapped by the other side, and Philip.... well he's a little different. Gone is the boy, here is The Devil Philip.

His interrogation of Grim at the end of book 3 seems to have changed him for the worse (or the better depending on how you look at it). He is in full flight, and full of rage. He wants revenge, and he wants Satina back. There's only one way to do it, and in doing so he will defy Lucifer himself. Of course, he is

I received an ARC copy from the author but that has in no way influenced my review, which I freely chose to write.
This is the fourth book in The Great Devil War Series, a series that I’m enjoying enormously, and I loved this part as well. As I warned in my review of the previous book, that one ended with a huge cliff-hanger, but you don’t need to worry; that is not the case here. And not only that, but many of the mysteries and questions that had yet to be answered from the rest of the series ge

Thank you to the author for providing me with a free e-copy in exchange for an honest review.

Whew, has this been a wild ride! I mean, I'm not too surprised, everything in the previous book hinted at these events. The fourth installment in The Great Devil War was dark, intense and an absolute blast!

Reviewing books so far in the series is always tricky, as I don't want to go into great detail and accidentally spoil anything. These books have consistently been really good and entertaining, and The

I was super excited when I started reading The Angel of Evil. I needed to know what was going to happen to Philip, Lucifer, Satina, Aziel (yes, him!!), and the other residents of Hell that have been introduced throughout this series. I was not disappointed. The Angel of Evil more than delivered in this book.

It is hard to write a review for a book that has such a complex storyline. I am going to try. There is so much that I want to say but can’t because I fear revealing something I shouldn’t. I a

One of my favourite things about this series is the way in which the mysteries are handled. Andersen sends the reader on an extraordinary adventures, filled with twists and turns and almost leaving you with whiplash. The reveals themselves, even if they’re the obvious reveals, are done beautifully. I love that not every reveal is something I see coming, that Andersen’s writing leaves me guessing right up until the last possible second. Truth be told, that’s my favourite k

Kenneth B. Andersen's Great Devil War series continues with The Angel of Evil, Book 4. This series is so difficult for me to categorize. It's definitely fantasy, dark fantasy, and Christian fantasy. I mean it does deal consistently with the battles between good and evil, the Devil and God, Heaven and Hell. No matter how you classify it, it's excellent fiction.

In The Angel of Evil, the story takes an even darker turn than in the previous three books. Phillip is pushed by his foes into taking dras

Kenneth B. Anderson brings us yet another enthralling addition to The Great Devil War series, The Angel of Evil. This tale is just as absorbing and action-packed as the first three novels.

Philip reunites with Lucifer and Satina once again, but this time Sam comes along. The dangerous antics that Philip engages in are heart-stopping. I was on the edge of the couch through the entire book. I couldn’t get enough.

We get to visit another underworld this time. Aziel has taken up refuge in his new king

I want to thank the author and Shannon from R&R Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I am still really enjoying this series but none of them beat the first book. When reading the first book everything was new. Now since we are further into the story we're still getting introduced to new worlds and people etc. but the overall evil is the same and I have been over the big bad since like book 2. I feel like I could have really loved it if the big bad

The fourth installment of The Great Devil Wars series is just as good as the three that preceded it, if not better. Full of darkness and pain, war is never pretty for even the young, but it tells us a lot about what’s in people’s souls. The Angel of Evil is much darker than the other books – less full of wonder and lightness. Instead, it brings the realities of sin and the destruction it causes, even in Hell.

I love how complicated the Devil is. He is not pure evil, as you might expect. Instead,

My Thoughts on The Angel of Evil
Kenneth B Andersen’s Angel Of Evil is the 4th book in The Great Devil War series and the darkest by far. The previous book, The Wrongful Death, ended on a cliffhanger with Satina being kidnapped. Without giving too much away, I can say that the story picks up right where The Wrongful Death ended. As expected, Philip defies Lucifer’s orders and goes after Satina in the Outer Reach.

The Great Devil War series started as a humorous adventure story with some dark notes

The Angel of Evil is a captivating new installment in The Great Devil War Series. It's been a little strange I must admit watching Phillip change and grow when such a small amount of time is passing for him, and the books just fly by once you start. No longer a meek, bullied kid, Phillip is coming into his own and everything is close to crashing in, on him and on Hell. Even though Hell and the devil are very central to the storyline, this doesn't have strong Christian overtones, and is enjoyable ...more

This book was a great follow on from the other three.
The characters are very live like and you begin to feel apart of the story.
The story is not only out of this world but at times funny.
Satina is captured and Philip goes to find her even though Lucifer objects.
A great with many things now being resolve ,coming back to normal in Heaven and Hell after the war.

This is the fourth book in Andersen’s Great Devil War series.
I loved this book just as much as the first three. It was dark and entertaining. It gripped me from the very first page.
We follow Phillip on his journey through the Underworld. It was a much darker, twisted journey this time full of nastier, more brutal demons.
As always, the world building was brilliant. The story was fast-paced and the characters were amazingly descriptive.
I can’t recommend this book and series enough.

I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review

I enjoyed the first 50% of the book, where we saw the aftermath of the events in the last book and his active efforts in saving Satina. However, the last 50% is where the book fell apart for me.

First off, I think this book hinges on the smallest details from the previous books and we didn’t have enough time to process them. I enjoyed a puzzle and putting the pieces together and I feel like Mr. Anderson is truly a brilliant author

After the intense cliff-hanger at the end of The Wrongful Death, I was quick to jump into the next in The Great Devil’s War series with The Angel of Evil.

The tension has been rising as Philip gets older, understanding more about himself, his emotions and what he would do for those he cares about. Our little innocent angel-boy from book one is nowhere to be seen as he comes to terms with previous events and plans how he’s going to get Satina back, stop Aziel and prevent a war from

This series has been such a blast! Honestly, I have very few complaints, if any, and the latest book, The Angel of Evil was no exception!

This installment is a bit darker than the previous books, understandandbly, as it is literally about life and death... true death for immortals, and war.

The worlds the author has created continue to take my breath away, but it his interpretation of God, the Afterlife and other religious icons that truly fascinated me. I am not a religious person, but I have alw

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.

In 2000 I published my debut fantasy book, The Battle of Caïssa, and that's w
