In order to be king, Lucifer has to die...
The Antichrist is supposed to rule the world, but Chris kind of promised the ghost of his father-in-law he’d rather have the love of his wife.
And he meant it…at the time.
However, Chris was born with a destiny. He is the prince-in-waiting. The destroyer of nations.
A failure with no magic, no armies, and no longer even a psychotic mother he can call upon.
Is he destined for a mundane life?
Good thing fate has other plans. Plans that include him becoming Hell’s King.
Hell’s King is the second book in Eve Langlais’ Hell’s Son series. This is the third series set in this world with the really funny Lucifer. The first series is The Princess of Hell, which like this one is a UF series that follows Lucifer’s youngest and favorite daughter, Muriel. The second series is Welcome to Hell, which is a paranormal romance with Lucifer playing matchmaker among his minions. Now, we are back to UF, following Lucifer’s son, Christopher, who is really just coming into the family.
So, in this story Christopher married Isobel, the granddaughter of Rasputin. But now life has gotten a little boring for Christopher. Isobel nags him about taking out the garbage. He’s also not able to raise the dead anymore. He’s mundane (nooooooo!!!!).
So a lot happens in this book. We meet Chris’s mother. We learn more about what’s going on with Chris’s power and how he becomes Hell’s King. We get some time with his older sisters, Muriel and Bambi. We also get to spend some time with Chris’s cousin, Charlie (the name that Jesus is now going by). Charlie is also an arms dealer.
Can’t say anymore because spoilers. I will just say, I don’t know if there is another book coming out in this series, but I’m sure we aren’t done with Christopher, Lucifer or everyone else in this world. Oh, you can read this series without having read the other series, but do start with Lazy Son, book one. You would get more from this, if you were already familiar with this world, but you would still have a good story with just this series. You do really need to experience Lucifer and his fondness of rubber duckies.
Tyler Donne continues to do a good job with the narration of this series. His male and female voices are good. I do wish he did a little more to bring the humor out in the series. I don’t think his “snark” voice is as good as it could be. But overall, not too bad at all.
Listen to a clip.
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.
