Publisher's Summary

Everyone is out of time....

Morag Murray is about to give birth to the Venislarn anti-Christ, and her baby is eager to be born. With only the possessed doll Steve the Destroyer to help her through her labors, she knows that when this child is born, the earth will face its final day.

Nina Seth is literally out of her own time. An evil sorceress is causing havoc in 18th-century England. With only Steve the Destroyer to help her prevent the premature end of the world, this clueless time-traveler has to save the past and find a way back to the present.

Vivian Grey is in hell - literally - and caught in a political conflict between warring Venislarn gods. With many human lives at stake, Vivian and Steve the Destroyer must join forces if they’re both to survive.

Rod Campbell knows that the world will end at midnight if he doesn’t rescue Morag from the secret organization that wants to use her as a pawn in its war against the Venislarn. The clock is ticking down to Judgement Day, and he hasn’t got a clue where she is.

One day and one night to save the world (again), and no one’s getting paid overtime.

Brill

I loved this book - I've read the previous books in this set. This one stood out among the rest.

It really pushed the main characters to overcome their biggest challenges, commanding respect from the reader and resetting traditional hero/villain roles.

This while set in (albeit disgusting) strange places and surrounded by strange monsters, and of course lathered in wit and humor.

The narrator is the same brilliant one as the previous books.

overall highly recommend, even as a stand alone

Hilarious

This book series is so funny and so much fun! I am always impressed by the narrator, and they couldn’t have picked anyone better. This is a great read (or listen) that is over too soon even though it is over 10 hours long I think. The characters are all wonderful, and if you can’t enjoy Steve the Destroyer, I’m not sure that you can enjoy anything! I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Love it!

Best characters have plenty of screen time

Yay! Nina is prominent in the story and Steve returns with a vengeance. If Nina & Steve do not make you laugh then you likely hate all good things and should go eat broken glass.

Great read

This book continues to open the world of the consular mission staff and how they are trying to slow the end of the world with a unique humour. It's a great read and I would recommend starting with the first book and reading the series

Excellent

This is, unfortunately, the last book in this truly brilliant series. I can’t find fault with anything. The multitude of characters, all with different accents, the story and settings and, above all, the narration make for a really good listen. This series is meant for audio, there’s no way it can be appreciated if read. It’s definitely 5* but if I could give a higher score, it would be for the narrator. The best ever!

Less fun than previous three books

One again an excellent performance by Matthew Lloyd Davies. Great pace and annunciation.

I felt that there was less overt humour than the previous books. Much of the brilliantly funny observational jokes were of the intersection of mundane Birmingham and the hidden activities of extra-dimensional monster/gods.

This time some of the maguffin has been exposed for examination to the detriment of the story. Characters are dispersed across time and dimensions. I found my interest flagging.
