Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

Review:

"The end of the world is coming, and the portents are everywhere. All is dependent on the anti-Christ — if the agents of good and evil here on Earth can find him. Action-packed with flaming swords and freakish catastrophes, the 20-year-old novel is made even more suspenseful, irreverent, and clever with Martin Jarvis at the helm. Young or old, male or female, angel or demon, human or not, Jarvis's voices are legion, and his delivery and dramatics make for never a dull moment." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
