ARC Arrival: In the Arms of Immortals by Ginger Garrett

In the Arms of Immortals: A Novel of Darkness and Light by Ginger Garrett

Publisher: David C. Cook

About the book: Sicily, 1347. It starts with a strange ship in the village harbor. That night an old man falls ill. . .then the baker's wife. . .then a street urchin. By morning half the townspeople are dead and more are dying--horribly. Civic order breaks down. Wolves move in from the countryside. And no one has a clue what is happening or how to stop it. Not the local priest. Not the rich baron. Not the baron's proud daughter, nor the powerful knight who loves her. Certainly no the outcast healer whom many call a witch.

Only the Destroyer and the unseen Watchers know the real story. . .along with an unwilling visitor from another time. Mariskka recognizes the Black Death that will soon decimate Europe. But she has no voice to speak, no way to help. . .until she dares open her pain-hardened heart to the unfathomable truth. (back cover)

Richly imagined, tautly suspenseful, and deeply moving. . .another heart-stopping historical thriller form the author of In the Shadow of Lions.
