Zachary Quinto - best known for his role as the Nimoy-approved Spock in the recent Star Trek reboot and the menacing, power-stealing serial killer, Sylar, in Heroes - brings his well-earned sci-fi credentials and simmering intensity to this audio-exclusive novella from master storyteller John Scalzi. One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone - 999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don't know.

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.

the storyline was great, I love the characters, and the way she was looking at the different creatures. I just felt like she could have been less descriptive of everything, be descriptive of your characters be descriptive of the places that are interesting, just don't get carried away we don't need to know everything they're wearing the way their hair is unless it's important to the character.

This was a really fun read. The storyline was easy to follow, good twists and turns. I JUST WISH that the swearing was not necessary. It's a fictional world, swearing could be unnecessary.
Thanks for a fun book, I really am looking forward to the next part of Harley and friends life.

Now, nearly two years later, she discovers that Philip was a far different man from the one she had married so cavalierly.

After a sad and neglected childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre was hired by Edward Rochester as governess for his ward. Jane was pleased with the quiet country life at Thornfield, with the beautiful old manor house and gardens, with the book-filled library, and with her own comfortable room. But there were stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughed like a maniac, and who stayed in rooms on the third floor.
