Description

Mercury Rests: The epic conclusion to the Mercury trilogy!

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.

But the pair soon realize 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."

About the author

ROBERT KROESE honed his sense of irony growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After barely graduating from Calvin College, he stumbled into software development. In 2009, he called upon his extensive knowledge of useless information and love of explosions to write his first novel, Mercury Falls. He has written three more books in the Mercury series and a humorous epic fantasy, Disenchanted. The Big Sheep is probably something like Kroese's eleventh book, but there's no way to know for certain.

    Book Info: Genre: Urban Fantasy/HumorousReading Level: AdultRecommended for: Fans of the series, those who enjoy a humorous story and aren't too serious about religion.My Thoughts: I must say, this book is worth the price if for no other reason than to see Lucifer's resumé. Then there were the aspects of the earliest attempts at religion.“The best the wise men could do was to come to a general agreement that everybody would be better off if people weren't such assholes all the time. Even this modest principle was undermined by the fact that the gods themselves seemed to be mostly assholes, doing assholish things like dismembering each other and scattering each other's limbs along the Nile.”Then, of course, you have wonderful dialogue like: “Unusual” repeated Christine. “You mean like someone flying into outer space and imploding the moon with a glass apple?”“That was an atypical scenario,” said Jacob, in what Christine thought was a solid candidate for Biggest Understatement of All Time.While not quite as funny as the first two books, this one definitely had its share of laugh-out-loud-funny moments. I was absolutely delighted to notice that two of Tiamat's demons were called Konrath and Scalzi! Anyway, this entire series is just absolutely delightful and I highly recommend it for people who enjoy a laugh and aren't too serious about religion. Definitely check out these highly readable and fun books.Series Information: Mercury Rests is the third novel in the Mercury series.Prequel One: Mercury Begins, review linked here where formatting allowedPrequel Two: Mercury Swings, review linked here where formatting allowedBook 1: Mercury Falls, read in September 2010, review linked here where formatting allowedBook 2: Mercury Rises, review linked here where formatting allowedDisclosure: I received a paperback ARC from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for an honest review.
