Mercury Rises by Robert Kroese
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Humor is often a hit or a miss, but fortunately, this is is pretty solid. Mercury, a lowly Cherub, has had a lot of interesting adventures, from helping Tiamat (somewhat inefficiently) build ziggurats, dealing with Noah's family, or finding this book's Rowling's lost 7th novel, or dealing with Satan and the apocalypse.
The fun is in the zingers. The plots are nicely weird but always consistent and on target. Just ask Caine.
So, really, if you enjoy a good religion skewer, I humbly point you over here. It reads rather like a UF but with great flashbacks with some awesomely huge blow-ups. Just look up if you will know what I mean. :)
