It began on New Year's Eve. The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed - and more than half of the world's population was decimated. Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max.

Anchor of the number-one news show on cable, The Kelly File, Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly writes her much anticipated book, a revealing and surprising memoir detailing her rise as one of the most respected journalists working today. From the values and lessons that have shaped her career to her time at the center of the chaotic 2016 Republican presidential primary, this book offers an inside look at an uncompromising woman's journey to the top of the news business.

I enjoyed this book more then I anticipated. I felt that Megyn Kelly reading it really added to the meaningfulness of the book. This bio certainly gave me a far deeper understanding of what it takes to be a successful working woman and good mother and wife.

When an intricate old map is found stuffed into the walls of the bistro in Three Pines, it at first seems no more than a curiosity. But the closer the villagers look, the stranger it becomes. Given to Armand Gamache as a gift the first day of his new job, the map eventually leads him to shattering secrets. To an old friend and older adversary. It leads the former Chief of Homicide for the Sûreté du Québec to places even he is afraid to go. But must. And there he finds four young cadets in the Sûreté academy, and a dead professor. And, with the body, a copy of the old, odd map.

Because of the story and ending, I am afraid that this might be the end of this wonderful series. This just can not happen before I move to Three Pines😄

I was very disappointed in this book. Nora Roberts is a good story teller but not in this series. The readers was hard to understand and made the experience worse.

This was my first time I have read this author. I truly enjoyed the story and writing style. I have downloaded book two. Best recommendation I can give it.
