    Five hundred years have passed since the devastating demon-led war that tore apart the United States, leaving nothing but scorched and poisoned ruins, and nearly exterminating humankind. Those who escaped the carnage and blight were led to sanctuary by the boy savior known as the Hawk - the gypsy morph. In an idyllic valley, its borders warded by powerful magic against the horrors beyond, humans, Elves, and mutants alike found a place they believed would be their home forever.

    Story

    I bought this book because it matches my genre interests and had been suggested to me by a friend. However I did not have high hopes.
    I was pleasantly surprised! I have to say first that this was one of the best performances that I have heard! My husband even wanted it after hearing just the last chapter.
    This story has a very "Lord of the Rings" feel so it was indeed a book right up my alley. I loved the characters and the way that the story unfolded. The timing of events was just right so that I stayed in the moment. The character development could have been a little more involved though. I hated the ending. But not enough to keep me from buying the next in this series.

    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

    I started this book as a suggestion and was entranced within the first 10 minutes! Having listened to several books lately, I was stunned by the narrator's performance! The story has a solid plot and characters as well. I suppose that if creatures really were among us it would look something like this. I like it so much I listened to it twice, then read the book! Totally recommend it! The bad part, now I'm left hanging while waiting for the third book in the trilogy.
