In the Arms of Immortals by Ginger Garrett is the second book in the Chronicles of the Scribes series. It is a beautiful October day in 1347 on the island of Sicily when a mysterious ship comes ashore. Not long after its lone passenger sets foot on the island, people start dying, horrifically and suddenly, and no one will be left untouched by its wake. Not the beautiful daughter of the baron or the knight who loves her. The outcast female healer or the town priest she once loved. Mariskka, once a hospice nurse, now an author with a secret, had no thought of anyone else, including those residents of Sicily until a strange force propels her into the past and forces her to face its horrors. Garrett has stared an enigmatic and fascinating series with the Scribes, and I hope that it doesn't end any time soon! She has a rare talent for writing about the invisible spirits around us that make them come to life and feel real without ever being hokey. Her recreation of the Black Plague is difficult to read, but all too easy to believe. Death, followed by violence and bloodshed keeps the pages turning, even as the reader wants to turn away from the darkness that is so realistically rendered. I love this completely original series with its depiction of the past along with angels and demons!
