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’s sense of irony was honed growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan—home of the Amway Corporation and the Gerald R. Ford Museum, and the first city in the United States to fluoridate its water supply. In the second grade he wrote his first novel—the saga of Captain Bill and his spaceship, Thee Eagle. This turned out to be the high point of his academic career. After barely graduating from Calvin College in 1992 with a philosophy degree, he was fired from a variety of jobs before moving to California, where he stumbled into software development. As this job required neither punctuality nor a sense of direction, he excelled at it. In 2009 he called upon his extensive knowledge of useless information and love of explosions to write his first novel, Mercury Falls. Mercury Rests, his third book, concludes the trilogy.

From Booklist:

Earth is once again in peril in the final volume of Kroese’s Mercury trilogy. Lovable rogue angel Mercury saved the day in Mercury Rises (2011) at the expense of the moon, and now he finds himself thrust far into the future, stuck watching countless matches of ping-pong between eternal optimist Job and ruthless Cain. Back in the present day, Lucifer has decided to use the chaos on Earth following the destruction of a third of the moon to mount an attack on heaven itself, while the devious Tiamat makes a bid to control a powerful weapon. Mercury must make his way back to his human friends, reporter Christine and FBI analyst Jacob, to thwart both attacks. After the dire peril of the previous books, the nefarious master plans and save-the-world scenarios feel pretty familiar, but, as ever, Kroese’s humor and sense of fun are really the driving forces of the series. Fans of the previous two novels will clamor for the droll and witty Mercury’s last adventure. --Kristine Huntley
