Seven Grigori enforcers have been murdered, lured to their death by a demon, and bearing the faint energy signature of a Fallen archangel no one has seen in over two million years. As the Iblis, it’s Sam’s responsibility to find the Ancient responsible and bring him to justice, but how can she manage that when she can’t even keep her adopted infant angel from repeatedly killing his corporeal form?
She’s determined to prove herself worthy of the Iblis title, but when the killer claims to be Samael, and an army of demons along with the most powerful Ancients in Hel flock to his side, what’s an imp to do?
The fate of the human world and the entire angelic host rests in her hands. Can Sam get control of Hel, and more importantly, can she face down the Fallen archangel whose shoes she’s struggling to fill?
“Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It’s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick.”—Washington Post
According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
They’ve got five days to escape. Five days for Uriel to save these women—and five days for her to save the demon she’s beginning to think is just as much of a captive as they are.
Because saving them all is the only way she can atone for…something‑ atone, and win forgiveness for a past she can’t remember.
