Aziraphale is an angel. Crowley is a demon. They’ve both been on Earth for over 6,000 years, and during that time they’ve grown quite fond of it. They like the music, the food, and, sometimes, the people. They’ve even grown to like each other, despite the fact they’re supposed to be locked in the endless battle of good versus evil. But there’s a problem – the antichrist is coming, and he’s threatening to send them home.
The Divine Plan has been made clear. Shortly after his 11th birthday, with a murderous hell-beast at his side, the antichrist will call the four horsemen of the apocalypse and herald the end of the world. Except, due to a mix-up at the hospital, the antichrist has gone missing in a sleepy English village, and the hell-beast has turned out to be an adorable dog.
