    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    Like the header says ..... the author must have been sitting around with friends discussing a zombacolyse world when someone must have piped up " well... if i'm going to be in a zombie apocolypse I want to have super powers" and the storey line must of taken off from there...

    After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.

    Story

    I hated the narrator with a passion, I like the premise of the story but there is no doubt that I would rather gouge out my ears before listening to this again... I hated the descriptive text ... oh, maybe I should say.. the story had the strong scent of steel scraping across my back teeth mixed with the heady smell of 3 day old cabbage as my grey green eyes sparkle with the undertones of stars fading in the cool fall twilight...... blah , blah, blah... ..this could be a great story if it was written a real author

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Story

    Omg this is the single most irritating storey I have ever listened to . I still have not finished it . I'm not sure it's the terrible narration or the inanely discriptive emotional diatribe that never ends. Could have been better storey if it was written by a 12 year old

    Michael Havel was flying over Idaho en route to the holiday home of his passengers when the plane's engines inexplicably died, forcing a less than perfect landing in the wilderness. And, as Michael leads his charges to safety, he begins to realize that the engine failure was not an isolated incident.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Gag me with stonehenge... I've read a lot of far fetched alternate fantasy that one could accept and enjoy but this was certainly not one. the pagan theme totally ruined the story it was too prepotorus. We do not have enough wiccans in our world prancing around to make thi work


    What other book might you compare Dies the Fire to and why?

    None ... I would not want to cause offense to them


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    What a waste of a great storey line... Let someone else rewrit it
