Publisher's Summary

After foiling an attempt to destroy the universe, Mercury has gone missing. And with the devil already putting the final fiendish touches on his next scheme to bring about the apocalypse, all that stands between Lucifer and his dreams of a hellfire holocaust are two misfit humans: jaded religion reporter Christine Temetri and mild-mannered forensic analyst Jacob Slater. The pair soon realizes that the Prince of Darkness has set his sights higher than they can reach; he’s planning to bring his battle for domination straight to the pearly gates. They’ll need the wisecracking, Ping-Pong-loving, apathetic angel Mercury to help save the day, the world, and Heaven before the clock ticks down to the End Times…if they can find him.

By turns epic and explosive, Mercury Rests concludes the trilogy that Booklist describes as a “hilarious romp” that has “cult favorite written all over it.”

Kroese is the best living satirist

This series just gets better and better. Kroese is a master satirist. If you like this check out his Starship Grifters

Kroese gets a bit off track

Would you try another book from Robert Kroese and/or Kevin Stillwell?

Yes, especially with Stillwell as the narrator.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Hmmm, I can't think of a most interesting aspect, as there are many things going on at once. I was least interested, however, in the long ruminations over religion, good and evil, and belief/non-belief in God's existence. It got really tedious.

What does Kevin Stillwell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Stillwell makes the book for me. His narration is superb. He lands all the subtle jokes and perfectly voices the different characters. The following book in the series is not read by him, and I couldn't finish it.

Do you think Mercury Rests needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Well, I read the follow-up, so I obviously like the series. But each novel gets more and more absurd and hard-to-follow. It seems as if the writer needs a better editor or maybe just needs to stop the series. I found this my least favorite of the series because it just goes on and on with no restraint. At times, it is like reading someone's rambling thoughts on life and the existence of God.

Any additional comments?

I recommend the first two in the series, but this one is for the hardcore, committed Mercury fan only.

Not as good as the earlier books in the series

It's still funny and clever, but there's only so much a writer can do with the same characters and settings. It's not sufficiently self-contained that you'll make much sense of it without having read the previous two books but, if you have, you'll find little new here. It's not a bad book by any means, and it does move the story along. It's just that the story feels a bit stretched thin. The narrator made a workmanlike job of the reading, but it wasn't particularly inspiring.

I listened to about a half of this, and then lost interest. I might pick it up again if I run out of other stuff to read, but I might not.

An fun mindbender.

Loved it. Reading the next one right after this. I am going to be sorry to have no more to read.
