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

More 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 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. Since then, he has three more books in the Mercury series; a humorous epic fantasy, Disenchanted; and a quantum physics noir thriller, Schrodinger's Gat. His latest book is Starship Grifters.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
So we've come to the end. Not just the end of the Mercury trilogy, the hysterical fantasy series by author Rob Kroese, but the end of the world if the characters running loose in Mercury Rests have anything to do with it. You've got a rogue demoness trying to take over the world (but mostly just blowing up large chunks of it), the Devil himself trying for a bigger prize, Job and Cain (yes, the ones from the Bible) playing ping pong at the end of the world, and as usual one wise-cracking angel named Mercury neck deep in the whole mess.

I'm not going to spend much time summarizing the plot of Mercury Rests, because chances are if you're reading this you've already read Mercury Falls and Mercury Rises (bonus points if you grabbed the Mercury Swings and Mercury Begins short stories) and want to know if the series ends well and if Kroese continues to deliver the goods. The answer to both is a resounding yes.

As good as Mercury Rises was, it didn't quite have the same momentum the first book had, and I got the impression that a sequel was never in the original plan. With Mercury Rests though, Kroese makes a smooth transition from the second book and ties the whole trilogy together in one grand apocalyptic epic. You see the big picture as well as the subplots.

Format: Paperback
"Mercury Rests" brings Robert Kroese's beloved 'Mercury' series to a tremendously satisfying conclusion. Although the first book of the trilogy, "Mercury Falls," remains a completely subjective favorite, I dare say that this is the best. The unique voice of series is as clear as ever here throughout action that spans not only the globe but space, Heaven, and time as well. Quirky, witty, thoughtful, and fun, this fast-paced offering managed to simultaneously draw the series to a worthy close and compel me to go back and begin reading the series anew. That's a rarity for me.

Kroese's diverse influences (literary, philosophical, and theological) are delightfully evident, but his work is truly singular. Attempts to fully describe it to the uninitiated typically begin with, "It will remind you of 'Hitchhiker's Guide,' 'Dogma,' Mel Brooks, or Monty Python," and always end with an exclamation of, "You just need to read it!" These are books you want to talk about and share. Don't let Kroese's "indie cred" make you skeptical---he is most assuredly the real deal. Fortunately for his ever-growing network of devoted readers, he is also quite prolific.

Robert Kroese's "Mercury Rests" theoretically ends his "Mercury" trilogy (Mercury Falls, Mercury Rises, and now Mercury Rests). The book reads just about like the previous two books in the series (light, humorous, irreverent), so the consistency is good. But, on the other hand, a fairly large part of the book is a re-hashing of the 2nd book from a different point of view. Regarding the pacing, there's a bit of a dragging point with Job and Cain fairly early in the book, but, in general, it's good. My biggest complaint with the book is the ending: Kroese ties up the stuff that needed tying up from the previous books, but he introduces points right at the end which throw things up in the air again. So, from what I can see, he's leaving himself room for another book at the expense of this book's ending. It's not the end of the world (ha ha), but it's enough for me to drop the book one star down to a merely OK 3 stars out of 5. If you've read the previous two books and enjoyed them, go ahead and read this one. It's an enjoyable couple of hours and you'll know what to expect.

*No Spoilers*

I found the Mercury trilogy on the Kindle Daily deal last week and purchased 'Falls' first.

I've been a fan of Douglas Adams' 'Hitchhiker' books since childhood, so when I came across Kroese's books and learned they have much in common with Adams' (I believe Douglas Adams was an inspiration for Kroese) I bought 'Mercury Falls' and took a chance.

The chance I took was worth it. After finishing 'Falls' I bought 'Rises' and 'Rests'. I was hooked after reading the first book.

Kroese's writing favors Adams, with undertones of Christopher Moore and Christopher Buckley, in my opinion. So, anyone who likes the mentioned authors should enjoy all three of the books. 'Falls' came off a little more "Douglas Adamsy" than the other two. It appears that Kroese really came into his own voice with 'Rises' and 'Rests', but again, that's my opinion.

I enjoyed Kroese's unique blend of humor with factual biblical information. It made for a pleasant and page-turning read.

Kroese's plots are really well-developed and at times complex; they kept me enthralled throughout the reading of the trilogy.

I can't say enough good about the books. I would suggest reading them in order: 'Falls', 'Rises', 'Rests'. I'm writing this review for all three.

Mercury Falls: 4.5 Stars

Mercury Rises: 5 Stars

Mercury Rests: 4 Stars
