In the Arms of Immortals

Mariskka fell from grace and had to re-learn humidity when she stole a manuscript from a dead patient’s room. She passed it off as her own. She quickly went from rags to riches. While preparing to take a shower, Mariskka hits her head and blacks out. When she awakes, she is visited by a Scribe. The Scribe is a group of guardian angels. This Scribe is not paying Mariskka a friendly visit. In fact he tells her that she has no guardian angel, due to her actions.

A ship arrives. It is carrying a very deadly disease. Soon people all over are dying. There deaths cause a panic. Something odd has happened to the villagers. Their skin is forming legions and boiling. The people don’t know it yet but the worst plague in history has just started…The Black Plague.

Mariskka must find a way to help the people. It won’t be easy as woman during these times had no voices or input.

In the Arms of Immortals is the second book in the Chronicles of the Scribe series. In the Shadow of Lions is the first book in this series. To be honest, I didn’t feel like you will miss anything by having not read the prior novel, though I can promise you that after reading this book you will be running to the nearest book store to pick up a copy of In the Shadow of Lions.

Not all Christian books are preachy. Most do tell a good story with strong characters. One of the best things I enjoy about reading these types of books is that they fulfill me and the plots have great substance. Ginger Garrett does this and more in, In the Arms of Immortals. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in this series.

I really love that cover and love the sound of this book. I would have never known that it was Christian if you hadn't have mentioned it.

Me being weird, I'll have to read book 1 first regardless of your suggestion (that's just cuz I'm a stubborn person)

But thanks for the review Cheryl. I'm definitely gonna look into this series =)
