    A love story serves as backdrop for The Map of the Sky when New York socialite Emma Harlow agrees to marry millionaire Montgomery Gilmore, but only if he accepts her audacious challenge: to reproduce the extraterrestrial invasion featured in Wells's War of the Worlds. What follows are three brilliantly interconnected plots to create a breathtaking tale of time travel and mystery, replete with cameos by a young Edgar Allan Poe, and Captain Shackleton and Charles Winslow from The Map of Time.

    Story
    Where does The Map of the Sky rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    While not my favorite story, I know The Map of the Sky is among the most memorable. The Map of Time was a light-hearted frolic compared to this dark story. Felix J. Palma weaves a horrifying "What if" tale, and James Langton's narration is spot on.


    What about James Langton’s performance did you like?

    Jame's Langton's voice never distracts from the character whose words he is reciting.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The Map of the Sky left me feeling as though I need another "The Map of'" book.

    On a frigid January night, Chief of Police Russ Van Alstyne and Reverend Clare Fergusson are called to the scene of a raging fire, that quickly becomes a double homicide and kidnapping. Which is the very last thing Russ needs.... Currently he's struggling with the prospect of impending fatherhood. And his new wife is not at all happy with his proposal for their long-delayed honeymoon: A week in an unelectrified ice-fishing cabin.

    Story

    the author's recurring themes of heroism, unconditional love and redemption are in full force. Suzanne Toren's narration is fluid, allowing for easy transition between characters, frequently before the conversing characters are named. Happily, several plot lines need to be resolved, giving me hope that there will be a book 9? Soon? Please?

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    "Irresistable. I hated having to turn off my IPOD"
    Overall

    This is an absolutely terrifying book, and yet I looked for opportunities to pick it back up.
