When Emma Montague left the strict confines of upper-crust British life for New York, she felt sure it would make her happy. Away from her parents and expectations, she felt liberated, throwing herself into Manhattan life replete with a high-paying job, a gorgeous apartment, and a string of successful boyfriends. But the cutthroat world of finance and relentless pursuit of more began to take its toll. This wasn't the life she wanted either.

I first fell in love with Jane Green when I read "Jemima J". I couldnt put it down! I had never been drawn to or held much interest in 'chic-lit' I love war and fantasy, suspense and other worlds far removed from my own. Yet, Jane Green delivers again, and again, and again. each time I devour her books and they are just as good to re-read or listen to over several time a year. they are real, hopeful, and make me laugh and cry, sometimes all at once! My mother was born and raised in England, spent her youth in South Africa before coming to the States when she was 16. Thank you Jane for sharing your stories, they are precious to me.

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.

a new take on viral strain and effect. I hope this is a trilogy, I love the characters. Would love to see book 3 return to the British Isles.
