Anyone have advice on the best genre/subgenre to list my book under? It's a story about a woman who is recruited by a clandestine organization to assassinate Satan and to help prevent human extinction from spiritual forces of evil. I have it under sci-fi/ paranormal and sci-fi/apocalypse/post apacalypse. That's probably the best two choices right? New to self publishing. Thanks!!

That sounds about right. Keep in mind that keywords are far more important than the two BISAC categories you select during the publishing process, in most cases.

Depends how you wrote it. You could just as easily make it SF/humor or satire. Do take a look at the keyword lists from KDP. Most genres have required keywords and some are country specific.
