Lucifer, Prince of Darkness, is off to a rough start. He's been plucked from Hell and dropped onto a rural Georgia highway. Naked. In the rain. And he's about to be hit by a car. To make matters worse, Lucifer is being hunted by an agent of God who has the power to destroy him.
Barabbas is looking forward to the end of his journey. Gifted with immortality, he has spent 2,000 years searching for the fallen angels who waged war against Heaven. They've been sent to Earth from Hell one by one, and Barabbas offers them all the same deal: rejoin the Kingdom of Heaven or perish forever.
Now his final adversary has arrived, and the hunt becomes something he never expected when Lucifer reveals himself to the world and uses the age of information to his advantage.
Before Barabbas can face off against Lucifer, he'll have to handle the geriatric Horsemen of the Apocalypse, not to mention a zombie army. But with his vampire companion, Kate; a motley group of NSA agents led by a 14-year old girl; and the Three Wise People, Barabbas might just stand a chance.

Original, funny. smart.
Kate- I liked all of the characters, but she had some truly great lines. I loved how the author made the women kickass.
He did a fantastic job- Kate, as I stated earlier, was laugh out loud funny, and I thought his Barabbas voice was sexy. The female federal agent was great, too. I want to listen to more of his work.
It had me laughing within the first few minutes- I couldn't wait to listen to all of it. And I'm hoping William Saunders can somehow contrive a sequel. There were also some points where I had to grab the tissues. I really cared about the characters.
This book has to have one of the greatest opening chapters of any book I've listened to or read in quite some time. It made me think of a collaboration of Christopher Moore & Chuck Wendig.
