Temetri is at her wits’ end. For years she’s covered the increasingly bizarre
activities of End Times cults for the Banner,
a religious news magazine. Yet Christine, who once dreamed of being a “real”
writer, has nothing to show for the gig other than a regular paycheck and
serious doubt Armageddon will occur in time for her next deadline. But after a
mysterious man entrusts her with a locked briefcase and orders to “take it to
Mercury,” Christine finds herself face-to-face with a ping-pong-playing angel by
the name of Galileo Mercury.
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, just to name 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.
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. Download and start listening now!
