Book Description

The Angel of Evil by Kenneth B. Andersen

Genre: YA Fantasy
Publication Date: October 20, 2019

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… 

The Great Devil War is a gripping and humorous tale about good and evil seen from an unusual perspective and set in a world beyond your wildest dreams…

My Thoughts

I’m starting this today and I can’t wait! As you may remember, I have posted reviews for books 1-3, so I have been eager to read the next book!

Book Description

Catalyst by Tracy Richardson

Genre: YA Fantasy
Publication Date: June 2, 2020

Marcie Horton has a sixth sense. Not in the “I see dead people” way, but . . . well, maybe a little. She feels a sort of knowing about certain things that can’t be explained-an intuition that goes beyond the normal. Then there was that one summer four years ago, when she connected with a long-departed spirit . . . But nothing that incredible has happened to Marcie since.
This summer, Marcie is spending time working at Angel Mounds, the archeological dig her mother heads, along with her brother, Eric, and his girlfriend, Renee. The dig is the site of an ancient indigenous civilization, and things immediately shift into the paranormal when Marcie and her teammates meet Lorraine and Zeke. The two mysterious dig assistants reveal their abilities to access the Universal Energy Field with their minds-something Marcie knows only vaguely that her brother has also had experience with. Marcie learns how our planet will disintegrate if action is not taken, and she and her team must decide if they are brave enough to help Lorraine and Zeke in their plan to save Mother Earth, her resources, and her history. It looks like the summer just got a lot more interesting.

My Thoughts

Catalyst is good but, for me, not great. It has an interesting shaman magic plot line and does a good job of explaining what fracking does to the earth. But, it reads more like a MG or even younger book to me, regardless of the fact that the main characters are older teens. It is more issue driven, like you often see in books for younger readers, rather than plot or character driven.

Book Description

The Fallen Angel by Kenneth B. Andersen

Genre: YA Fantasy
Publication Date:

It’s been almost two years since Philip left Hell and returned to life—this time for good.

But things have changed and so has Philip. He’s haunted by terrifying nightmares and has never felt so lonely. Lonely and angry.

Then one day the impossible happens and Philip is brought back to Hell. Not by the Devil, but by the Almighty himself.

Although the Great Devil War ended a long time ago, the battle is far from over—and the worst is yet to come.

My Thoughts

I am going from 4 right into 5 – I don’t get to do that very often anymore. The conclusion to the series. I am both looking forward to it and kind of sad to see it end

  1. I’ve been reading like crazy and am getting ready to start a new release I’ve been waiting for (The Apartment). I need to catch up with sharing some of my reviews. Looks like you have been busy reading too. I hope all is well with you. I’m resurfacing in the blogosphere, LOL!

  2. A YA fantasy week is the best kind of week! I really need to read The Great Devil War series still. They sound sooo good, and I can’t wait. I should be reading Catalyst pretty soon, so I’ll keep that in mind going in. I don’t mind younger books, but that can be a bit disappointing if you’re expecting something deeper, for sure. I’ve also come to the conclusion that Kenneth B. Anderson has a fabulous cover artist, because all of his covers are splendid!

    1. I described Catalyst to my husband as The Magic School Bus for older kids. That’s what it reminded me of 😊. Perhaps you will see it differently. As always, reading tastes are so crazy subjective.

  3. I have not heard of the series you are reading but it’s awesome that you are going right into 4 to 5! I always struggle with continuing right away! I’m trying to be better about it though because it reads so much better when it’s all fresh in your mind.
