Publisher's Summary

Four years after the destruction of the planeport, Earth remains cut off from Heaven. The angels and demons are in disarray, lacking direction and leadership. Someone has to step up and take control, and that person is...Mercury?

But when the demoness Tiamat finds out about Mercury's plan to reestablish contact with heaven, all hell breaks loose. Mercury finds himself at the center of a plot to rewrite Earth's history, and the only way to stop it is to travel back in time to prevent the plot from coming to fruition. Along the way, he accidentally travels to multiple parallel universes, meeting several alternate versions of himself and tearing a gaping hole in the fabric of reality.

Will the universe survive? Will Mercury be trapped in prehistoric Africa? Will we ever find out who Mercury's favorite Gilmore Girls character is? Listen to Mercury Shrugs to find out!

Character voices absolutely horrendous

The story was acceptable, not the best one in the series. However by far the worst part of this book was the narrator. I would rather listen to the narrator just dead pan the voices than the than have to sit through that again. Definitely recommend the series, however pick up the hard copies after the third book when Kevin Stillwell stops narrating.

Enjoyed the series until now. Bad new narrator.

Every character either sounds like an aging queen or is ridiculously annoying. Couldn't finish book due to irritation level induced by narrator.

What happened to narrator Kevin Stillwell???? He

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Just started it and very disappointed in the new narrator!! Not sure if I will finish it.

Don't let the other reviews scare you away

Don't let the other reviews scare you away. I almost let them. The other reviews mentions the change of narrator in such negative way that I worried it would ruin my enjoyment of the story. I am glad I bought the book in spite of this. The narration is perfectly fine and they even added some light audio drama on top. Which I felt worked well.

The story itself is even greater and manages to wrap this rollercoaster of a book series up in a way that unexpectedly explains everything in a way I didn't know I needed.

Love the Story. Bad narrator

I like the first stories so much that I continued only to find that they switched narrators and the two that have read since then have SUCKED! At least the production was better on this one than the last.

Absolutely dreadful narration... I've had enough

Not gotten anywhere near finishing this book, and quite frankly I don't care. I love the first three books who I believe were narrated by Kevin Stillwell? Which were great. Book 4 narration was not great and really let the book down, but the narration for book 5 is really bad. As someone else put in their review of this, "the people sound either irritatingly stupid or like aging queens" and it was completely true, they do, and it's intolerably irritating to the point where I'm abandoning the book. If you read my review Robert, take my advice and get the original narrator back, as your sequels are being flushed down the toilet by narrators that are inappropriate for your books.
