The New Devil by Alexander Hansen

Being the Devil isn't easy—and neither is the on-the-job training. 

17-year-old Jason Giles dies and is subsequently railroaded into becoming the new ruler of Hell. As he learns about Hell, his role, and his abilities as the Devil, he tangles with a slew of demons and a few humans in his attempts to protect himself, his position, and ultimately, the world.

Note: The New Devil is unfinished, with no recent updates.  It contains pervasive harsh language; also, some graphic sexual content and graphic violence.

Easy Reader

The story’s main character, Jason Giles, finds himself in Hell’s waiting room following his own brutal murder. The fact that he has arrived there does not seem to freak Jason out nor does anything else come to that.

Jason appears to be a simple character. A bad boy who accepts [more . . .]

The New Devil

By Colleen Vanderlinden, member

Nov 17, 2013: I have read my way through this serial, and it’s definitely one I’ll continue reading. The author definitely has a knack for writing characters that you either really, really like or want terrible things to happen to. "The New Devil" is a fast-paced read, full of action, plenty of humor (often somewhat dark humor, which I love) and a protagonist that you can’t help cheering on, even if he is the Devil.

I will definitely keep reading this serial. Highly recommended.
