    Christine Temetri is at her wits’ end. For years she’s covered the increasingly bizarre activities of End Times cults for the Banner, a religious news magazine. Yet Christine, who once dreamed of being a "real" writer, has nothing to show for the gig other than a regular paycheck and serious doubt that Armageddon will occur in time for her next deadline. But after a mysterious man entrusts her with a locked briefcase and orders to "take it to Mercury", Christine finds herself face-to-face with a ping-pong-playing angel by the name of Galileo Mercury.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is great for those that like religous satire(like Anne Rice's "Memnoch the Devil"). The characters are silly, entertaining and some are pretty charming.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercury, of course! With his angelic knowledge and silly whims he is the first character that brought me in and made me want to know more. Mercury is an angel, but is fascinated with what makes us human and has embraced a new sense of self. Without giving a lot away, he is a loner that is still finding his place in the world.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is toward the end but I will just say that it involves a pissed off Lucifer, boxers and an annoying brat that just happens to be in his thirties.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I pretty much did. It took a little while for me to get pulled in but once I was, I wanted to know more about this world the author was trying to convey. The plot can be pretty complicated at times, but it flowed very well, making me want to keep listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this book not knowing that it was a series, but now that I know that there is more, I am eager to read the next installment. I am curious how you can top a plot like the Apocolypse.

    Once the Sith order teemed with followers. But their rivalries divided them in endless battles for supremacy - until one dark lord at last united the Sith in the quest to enslave the galaxy and exterminate the Jedi. Yet it would fall to another, far more powerful than the entire Brotherhood of Darkness, to ultimately realize the full potential of the Sith, and wield the awesome power of the dark side as never before.

    Story

    Earth Bane is amazing and the origin trilogy is great. I loved this book and the production is really awesome. I favor Sith stories over Jedi so I might have some bias but either way the production is immaculate. If you are new to Star Wars fiction, I highly suggest this story to get you started in an early timeframe.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The story was really good, but the sound effects were sometimes louder than the narrator. I had the listen to it with the book to make sure I was hearing it correctly. That being said, the main narrator was really good.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was awesome. Her voice was great and I wish I could have heard more of it through the sound effects.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation from the loud distracting noises while the narrator was speaking.
