    Suddenly all alone in 1894 Kansas, Summer Steadman can't find the employment she needs to settle near the fresh graves of her husband and four children. Bitter against the Lord and refusing to eat, she collapses in despair. Remembering his own painful loss, godly widower Peter Ollenbuger offers her food and shelter for tutoring his 10-year-old son.

    I can recommend this book as worth the listen. I cried and laughed. I really like the characters and I loved the narration. Good job to the Author and Narrator. For a first book, excellent.

    If you could sum up The Edge of Darkness in three words, what would they be?

    It's an adventure


    What other book might you compare The Edge of Darkness to and why?

    The rest of the series. Hope there is a book 5


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scenes I like best are the challenges from Methuselah. I like all the history and how Murphy puts the puzzle together


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    For the whole series it everytime Murphy finds the treasure. Wish there was less romance. In this book it's when Murphy gets back at Talon


    Any additional comments?

    I love these books. I've listened several times to the all 4 so far. But Murphy, as Methuselah calls him, is a blunder head. Don't get me wrong. I really get engaged in these stories, so much so that I find myself yelling at Murphy on many occasions. Despite that I love all the history Murphy teaches. Wish I could take one of his classes. I'm champing at the bit for book 5. I like Paul Michael as the reader. Hope they continue to use him.

    In East Salem, the elite St. Adrian's Academy is at the nexus of a satanic apocalypse - and the fatal tide is rising. When Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights is reunited with the pagans who commissioned it, a dark prophecy begins to unfold in East Salem, beginning with a savage double-murder by hellish creatures straight out of the painting itself. The lone survivor of the attack, a seventeen-year-old Brit, finds sanctuary at Tommy Gunderson's home - and the place is soon surrounded by demons who seem to be biding their time…but for how long?

    Where does Fatal Tide rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among my favorites.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how much detail is used to make the concept really interesting.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The battles and all the explanations of what was going on. I liked the tie up in the end of everything that happened thorough out the series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was. I did listen in one sitting. It was hard to stop till it was over. I was sad when it ended. I hope Lis keeps going on with this series.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though the concept seemed far fetched it was so detailed that it made you want to find out if the evidence that was used to explain what was going, was true.

    I gladly submit a review for this book. I loved this story and the characters. I have to say I cried some cleansing tears. I was caught up in the first words and willingly followed along to the last. I'm sure reading the book would have touched me but the narrator made it even better.
    Thank you Linda. Can't wait til the next book.

    I thought Jeremy was excellent. This is my favorite book in the series to read and I've imaged how each charactor would sound. So listening to it with the different voices that Jeremy used made the book very enjoyable
