According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch - the world's only totally reliable guide to the future - the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea...The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, the Four Bikers of the apocalypse are revving up, and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not particularly looking forward to the coming rapture.

Great story, writing and performance. Witty, wonderful and, as always with Pratchett, has its heart in the right place. Very very enjoyable.

Deep in the jungles of Peru, the hunt for a legendary Incan idol is underway - an idol that in the present day could be used as the basis for a terrifying new weapon. Guiding a US Army is Professor William Race, a young linguist who must translate an ancient manuscript which contains the location of the idol.

Thumping pace, action, adventure, ferocious mythical cats AND Nazis? Suspend disbelief for a while and enjoy the chaos.

Former house cat turned war hero Mort(e) is famous for taking on the most dangerous missions and fighting the dreaded human bioweapon EMSAH. But the true motivation behind Mort(e)'s recklessness is his ongoing search for a pretransformation friend - a dog named Sheba. When he receives a mysterious message from the dwindling human resistance claiming Sheba is alive, he begins a journey that will take him from the remaining human strongholds to the heart of the Colony.

My 1st audio book via Audible and it is a stark yet engaging and emotionally rich imagining of the rise of the animals. Capable and subtle voice work really adds to the atmosphere. The imagery felt quite adult-Manga to me. Highly recommended.
