Summary from Goodreads:

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 . . .

Own fun is this premise? I love the collaboration of two of my favorite authors, and the story they came up with.

After binge watching Good Omens the TV series, I had to read the book of course. It didn't disappoint. The characters were so vibrant and relatable, oddly enough for them being angels and demons, and the story was supper entertaining to be a part of. If these two write another book, I am totally there for it.
