Philip is a good boy, a really good boy, who accidentally gets sent to Hell to become the Devil’s heir. The Devil, Lucifer, is dying and desperately in need of a successor, but there’s been a mistake and Philip is the wrong boy. Philip is terrible at being bad, but Lucifer has no other choice than to begin the difficult task of training him in the ways of evil. Philip gets both friends and enemies in this odd, gloomy underworld—but who can he trust, when he discovers an evil-minded plot against the dark throne?
When the author reached out to me asking if I would be interested in reading and reviewing his book I read the synopsis and I was immediately intrigued. I thought this would be one of those just ok reads for me but low and behold it was way better then I expected it to be. Also I need to point out that this book was translated from Danish but you would never know that was the case because it was done perfectly.
This book takes place in hell and the author has done an amazing job with the world building. He is very creative and it’s honestly not what I have ever pictured hell to be like. He is very descriptive but never did I feel like we were getting to much description or information.
The Devil’s Apprentice is a fast paced YA novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat with anticipation. It’s a story of good and evil with some action and a little bit of cutesy romance thrown in. I am definitely interested to see what the next book has in store for us.
