The Wrongful Death is the third book in The Great Devil War series by Kenneth B. Andersen.
Review of the first book- The Devil’s Apprentice
Review of the second book- The Die of Death
The story of Phillip and his submersion into the supernatural world continues. He once again returns to Hell but this time, by his own choice to save Sam, the school bully who dies an untimely death. He finds Hell to be slightly different than how it was when he left.
This series keeps on getting better and better! The Wrongful Death was definitely the darkest and most intense book in the series so far. This book moves away from just Hell and Phillip and Satina embark on new adventures to places such as Paradise and Hades. The book also delves encompasses the story of the creation of the Earth, Adam and Eve and also a bit of Greek Mythology. Phillip discovers some secrets about his life, and it would be interesting to see how he deals with them. I know that a war is brimming in the plot but besides that, I cannot see where the series is going, which makes it all the more exciting.
I would like to read more about how Phillip feels about being in the human world and then suddenly in Hell again and again. Which of the two he likes more and the effect this transition has on him. I believe that would add more depth to his character. At first in this series, I felt like Phillip’s personality fluctuated too much. He’s one second extremely good and the next, completely evil. It finally started to make sense in this book why this was happening.
The ending was not what I expected it to be. It was, however, my favorite ending in the series so far! I really enjoyed that this book was darker than the first two and I hope the series continues in that direction.
