It seems Mercury was sent from heaven to make preparations for Armageddon, yet became sidetracked by the earthly delights he discovered: Rice Krispy treats, table tennis, and beer, to name just a few. Mercury’s concern for the fate of mankind is middling at best, but he is happy to educate Christine on the details of the elaborate, if poorly organized, calamity to come. When Christine inadvertently saves the Antichrist - an obnoxious, thirtysomething gamer who still lives with his mother - from celestial assassination, she begins an ambitious battle to stop the Apocalypse and save the world. But the heavenly host is nothing if not persistent, and Christine, aided only by an apathetic angel and a reluctant Antichrist, has her work cut out for her.
Packed with outrageous characters, Mercury Falls is a viciously funny (and occasionally absurd) morality tale for the 21st century.

Love this book! I would have never guessed that a book about the Apocalypse could be so enjoyable! If you enjoy the writing style of Douglas Adams, you will really enjoy this book. It is witty and has a great plot, and the characters are interesting and funny. I laughed out loud quite often. The narrator is also excellent, he does a great job distinguishing the voices too. Highly recommnended! Can't wait to listen to the rest of the series!

So much fun
This book is probably my favorite in the series, though I loved the whole series and was sad when it ended.
Mercury is a great character. His take on "being a prawn" as opposed to a pawn is hilarious. I want to say that from now on.
Very funny, very entertaining and worth reading the whole series.
