Personally, Christopher would rather just work hard enough to make ends meet - and maybe buy a six-pack. But fate is conspiring against him. For some reason, the dead won't stay in the ground, apparently he's not an only child, he has sisters, and this hot chick he met in the cemetery refuses to sleep with him.
It's time for this lazy prince in waiting to rise to the occasion and embrace destiny - or at least make out with it.

Lucifer Has A Son!
Lazy Son is book 1 in the Hell's Son series by Eve Langlais. Because each book cannot stand alone, I consider it a serial. I HATE serials (and the cliffhangers they have), but because the author is Eve Langlais, I was willing to deal with it. I usually wait until all the books are available when I read a serial, but I was able to get a copy of this audio book, so didn't wait this time. I really hope that she doesn't continue this trend past this set, however.
This is a prequel to the Princess of Hell series and the Wickedest Witch and Last Minion Standing books. It mentions characters and events from them as well as the Welcome to Hell series, so if you've read them, it is fun to recognize those references. This book has prompted me to start re-reading all of those books again.
Christopher was raised by a cult who told him that he was the son of Lucifer and the Antichrist. They gave him everything he wanted and worshiped him, so he is lazy, arrogant, raunchy, and very unlikable. He has been waiting for his destiny (to destroy the world and rule Hell), and in the meantime has a job as a gravedigger and lives in a cemetery. He starts to wonder when his destiny is supposed to happen, when he meets Isobel, a witch descended from a line of powerful witches. When they meet, the dead rise and life finally becomes interesting.
The story: Christopher is not a likable guy. He is lazy, arrogant and crass. I have no idea why Isobel was originally attracted to him, but she did help him to grow into a better man as the story progressed. I was surprised, because I Eve Langlais normally writes her heroes as guys with some redeeming quality so you like them and want them to succeed. Christopher had none. I enjoyed the story, including Isobel's family. I wasn't really rooting for them to get married, though, feeling that Christopher hadn't earned Isobel yet. That ending was quite a cliff-hanger that had me cheering and glad I didn't have to wait for book 2.
The audible: The narrator did a good job of having a different tone for the different characters, especially Isobel's family. The audible brought the characters of the book to life and though I generally have trouble following things that are only aural, I didn't have a problem following along with this narrator.

A lazy antichrist
Christopher grew up in a cult where his mom raised him up to believe he was the son of the devil, the Antichrist. (I guess they didn't know the devil could only make little girls).
Well he is one of the laziest people I know. He does the minimum effort - ever.
He meets Isobel (a witch) while she visits her friends' grave. And then all hell breaks lose, actually the dead, as zombies started rising and they (Isobel and Christopher) needed to fight them off.
Isobel's family - well they are just so weird, and nobody is listening to her about the zombie attack.
There is many drama's and in the end we find out a few surprises for Christopher.
Yes this is a cliffhanger - but so what, this is the lazy antichrist we talking about, everything takes its time.
I really enjoyed this one as well. Can't wait for the rest.
