She left him at the altar, but the Devil is making him keep his promise.

Destiny is calling Chris, yet someone forgot to give him an instruction manual on conquering the world. Being the Antichrist is all well and good, but how is he supposed to know how to bring about Armageddon? He’s still waiting for his army of minions, the glory, the riches. And where is the respect?

You’d think any woman would be ecstatic at the thought of marrying the future ruler of the world.

Not Isobel.

She keeps spouting things like “forced to get married,” “love me for myself, not because Daddy made you.”

It doesn’t help that his psychotic mother with a penchant for playing with dead things has taken an interest. However, having her henchman of the apocalypse attempt to kidnap him isn’t the way to get in his good graces.

Things are starting to get complicated on Earth. Dark forces are rising, Chris’s powers are still developing—and he’s pretty sure his dad, Lucifer, wants him dead. What’s the destroyer of the world to do?

Point him to the nearest bar. This calls for more beer.

So this is the second book in Eve Langlais’ Hell’s Son series. It picks up at the end of the first book, Lazy Son. If you aren’t familiar with this series, it is set in the same hilarious world as Princess of Hell and Welcome to Hell series. You don’t have to have read either of those series to read this one, but you will get some cameos and easter eggs if you’ve read them.

So this series is told from the POV of Christopher, the Antichrist, son of Lucifer. He wasn’t raised by his biological mother, because she was hiding him from Lucifer. He was given to a woman and he was worshiped as the Prince of Hell. The “mother” who raised him is in prison now for murdering her boyfriend (in her defense, the boyfriend tried to poison Chris when he was only 10).

Isobel is granddaughter of the infamous wizard, Rasputin. She is a witch and has been wearing a magical chastity belt. Her grandfather had a bet with Lucifer, and Rasputin has to provide Lucifer with a virgin to wed. Lucifer decides to weasel out of it by making Chris marry her. They both know they are being coerced into a marriage, but neither knows who the other person is. That is until they meet at the end of the aisle and the veil is raised. This does not sit well with Isobel.

This is another really funny addition to this world that Eve has created. I’m a huge fan of Lucifer. He is just great, but I love all the characters around him too. There is some suspense as Chris tries to complete the impossible task which Isobel has put in front of him. His biological mother is messing with things too. Chris is pulled in different directions as people are trying to prevent or cause the apocalypse. I can’t wait to see where the series goes from here for Isobel and Chris.

Narration:

This is the second book I’ve listened with Tyler Donne (the first being Lazy Son). I like his voices for the characters. I think his pacing is great. I just feel like he could bring out the humor in the book more. I’m not sure exactly what it is, but there are narrators who really bring out the humor in a story (Abby Craden and Tillie Hooper have done this for other Eve series). He isn’t bad at all. I would just like to see a little more emotion and humor in his telling.

Listen to a clip.

About Eve Langlais

Author: Eve Langlais

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

Hello, my name is Eve Langlais and I am an International Bestselling author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens .

I should warn you, I have a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. While well known for my shifter stories, I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane…with pleasure. Or do you like something a little darker, more serious? Then check out my cyborgs whose battle with humanity have captivated readers worldwide.

I’m Melanie, and I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. I will read contemporary romance on occasion, but not often. I will occasionally throw in a biography, usually autobiographies of people that I find interesting. Listening to autobiographies that are narrated by the author have been great in my experience.

I started listening to audiobooks when a new book in a series was coming out and I wanted to get a refresher, but didn’t have time to read all the books (I think it was Anita Blake). I fell in love. I stayed with strictly re-reading books that I’d already read for a long time. I eventually tried an audiobook for something that I hadn’t read first and was hooked there too. Now, I listen to audio for both re-reads and first time. I have some series that I’ve given up reading and only listen. I try to get any many books/audiobooks from the library to help save on my budget. Books on CD and the newer digital downloads from the library really allow me to listen more. I then purchase my favorites (because who can wait in line for your favorite book??) and less mainstream books from Audible or some other online retailer.

    I forgot about this spin off series. It sounds just as good as the others in the Hell world. Enjoyed your review, Melanie!

    I have seen this author around but haven’t had a chance to read her books yet. This sounds like an absolute blast! I will have to make a point to see about getting my hands on a copy of the first book from the series.

    • I really love Eve Langlais. Her books always make me laugh. She has several series that intermengle too. Like this one touches Princess of Hell and Welcome to Hell series. She also has Kodiak Point, Bitten Point and Dragon Point series. Each series can be read as a stand alone or as part of a larger, overarching series.
