While the world is plagued by natural disasters and nations.

Publisher's Summary

Fresh off their successful quest to thwart not one, but two diabolical plots to destroy the world, jaded reporter Christine Temetri and rough cherub Mercury find that mysterious powers outranking even the Heavenly bureaucracy seem intent on keeping the Apocalypse on track. Mercury Rises continues author Robert Kroese’s tale of the heroic cherub Mercury, who is generally well-intentioned, rarely well-behaved, and always well-armed with a droll remark. While the world is plagued by natural disasters and nations prepare for war, crazed billionaire Horace Finch plots to use a secret device hidden beneath the African desert to discover the deepest secrets of the Universe - even if he has to destroy the Universe to do it.

Meanwhile, unassuming FBI investigator Jacob Slater tries to find a rational explanation for the mysterious destruction of downtown Anaheim - a quest that ultimately brings him face to face with the unhinged Horace Finch. Together, Christine, Jacob, and Mercury must stop Finch from activating the device and tearing reality to pieces. Kroese’s rapid-fire sense of humor and razor-sharp wit keep Mercury Rises moving at breakneck speed, hurtling toward a climax that is as funny as it is satisfying.

    Story
    "Story is great; reading is very poor"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, probably good to read. Not so much to listen to on Audible.


    What other book might you compare Mercury Rises to and why?

    Exponential Apocalypse, Good Omens


    What didn’t you like about Kevin Stillwell’s performance?

    Effeminate lisp for gay characters. Fake Chinese?/Japanese? accent for Eurasian character. Terrible female voices. Angry/annoyed characterization of Mercury. Uneven Irish accent. Vocal inflection/emphasis that sometimes seemed to show a lack of comprehension of what he was reading.


    Did Mercury Rises inspire you to do anything?

    Yes. It inspired me to write this review. This book deserves a better audio edition.

    "Better than the first"

    Book 2 exceeded my expectations! It was better than the first one. It made more sense it was funnier than Mercury falls. The author's voices weren't as bad either. Much better Jon this time. I enjoyed this book. I hope the third gets even better!
