    • 4.5 Stars. It has been far too long since I've lost myself in the pages of a Ginger Garrett novel. In the Arms of Immortals is Garrett's second novel that examines critical turning points in medieval history that changed women's lives forever. In the Shadow of Lions touched on the untold story of Anne Boleyn's faith, and her role in making the scriptures available in an English translation, threatening the religious establishment and allowing individuals to discover and grapple with the tenets o [...]


    • Mariskka fell from grace and had to re-learn humidity when she stole a manuscript from a dead patient’s room. She passed it off as her own. She quickly went from rags to riches. While preparing to take a shower, Mariskka hits her head and blacks out. When she awakes, she is visited by a Scribe. The Scribe is a group of guardian angels. This Scribe is not paying Mariskka a friendly visit. In fact he tells her that she has no guardian angel, due to her actions. A ship arrives. It is carrying a v [...]


    • While I found some aspects of this story interesting, it was also quite confusing. The writing was good, but I often felt a bit disoriented while jumping from each person's point of view. While I got that it was medieval Sicily, sometimes it felt like the characters were not connected to reality. I'm not sure how to explain it. They had a lot of internal thoughts that were deep, but it was hard to get to know each character. They all seemed confused. They said things that seemed to contradict wh [...]


    • Not only does Ginger Garrett take one of her main characters back to the past, but by reading In the Arms of Immortals, you’ll travel along as well—and it’s not a fluffy B&B excursion. As much as I personally love to view history through romantic colored glasses, the ugly side of humanity and sin is revealed through this tale…which makes the amazing love and mercy God holds for His creation all the more awesome. What really shines through in Garrett’s characterization is that you [...]


    • Ginger Garrett knows how to take a risk. Talk about a topic there aren't many books on, maybe for good reason the Black Plague. We step back in time to 1347 in Sicily. There we meet a couple of different women from different stations in life. Gio is a recluse who is a natural healer, she uses herbs, spices and natural cures to help people but she is looked down on by people (unless they need her help) and spat on my children. She is at odds with the local church man for reasons we don't see unti [...]


    • When I decide I want to read a book, it is usually a snap decision. Many times I do not even read the entire description before deciding I want to read a book. When I started reading the description for In the Arms of Immortals, all I had to see was that it was about the Black Death and I wanted to read it. In the Arms of Immortals is the second book in the Chronicles of the Scribe series, a series I was not familiar with until I started this book. This book lost me almost from the start because [...]


    • 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 [...]


    • In the Arms of Immortals is by Ginger Garrett. It's about a nurse who steals a story from one of her patients, and then is sent into the story (or the sequel). There is a lot left unclear. Anyways, Marisska is sent back to Sicily in 1349, at the time of the Black Death. The Destroyer arrives, bringing the Plague. No one knows where it came from or how to stop it from spreading. Not the dying, old baron who rules the town. Not the outcast healer, Gio who lives on the outskirts of the port city. N [...]


    • In the her second book about how women changed the Church Ms Garrett has chosen the time of the Black Plague. The nurse who stole the manuscript in "In the Shadow of Lions" is sent back to Sicily by the Scribe to experience the Black Plague and God's love and wonderous creations. We see how the Church has become the only method anyone is allowed to use to talk to God and helps to shut out those women who are gifted by God in healing knowledge. Although the horrors of the plague are described in [...]


    • Set in Sicily, 1347, In the Arms of Immortals transports readers back to the days when the Black Death strikes a small harbor village. I’ve been a fan of Ginger Garrett’s since I read Chosen, the story of Queen Esther, and her books just get better and better. She makes historical times come so alive that when I raise my eyes from the page, I’m surprised to find myself in my cozy living room. But she doesn’t just paint an historical picture. She reveals the workings of the spiritual worl [...]


    • This book is an interesting mix of current and historical fiction, taking Mariskka back in time to explore past events. And it is a bit of an unusual genre for me, as it explores the spiritual underworld, going behind the scenes to present the unseen battle between good and evil; angels and demons; at war for our very livesI found this to be an entertaining read, though initially I was uncomfortable with the way the supernatural was presented. It might be sad to say that I'm much more comfortabl [...]


    • It's rare that I don't finish a book but this is one case where I had to put it down. Someone mentioned bad editing and that may have been the problem. I was often confused by the descriptions and what exactly was going on between characters. Mostly for lack of a comma, or even a misplaced sentence. It jumped around very jarringly and I had to reread sentences and paragraphs constantly. I can't say I would recommend it. Content-wise this book is very dark and full of supernatural elements (angel [...]


    • I really liked this book. Ginger Garrett definitely has a brilliant way of transporting the reader into the pages of the book. Her character development & beautiful descriptive settings leave you wanting to read page after page without putting it down. A definite eye-opener in regards to the black plague. Its origins may be fanciful in the book but the speed of the spread paints a sobering picture. I love the message that we are only safe in the arms of Jesus & His angels. I will be inte [...]


    • Beautifully written piece connecting the sins of this century with those of the Black Plague of the Dark Ages. With a whisp of Christian fantasy, a healthy dose of history and characters I cheered for or wanted to strangle - In the Arms of Immortals took me on a ride I won't soon forget! I'm adding Ginger Garrett to my "must read author" list!


    • This book is the second in a series. I LOVED the first book, but this one was very confusing. I had a hard time getting into it and it took me forever to finish. In the end it was a good story, but took too long to get there.


    • Bizarre but beautiful medieval thriller about the black death. Imagine Frank Peretti meets C.S. Lewis meets time travel. Now toss in some amazing poetic language. It left me slightly confused, but gave me so much to think about. Inspiring and well-worth reading.


    • I thought this was a pretty good book. I really enjoyed the plot and characters in the story. It was a sequel to "Shadows of Lions" but had a different plot, but it was still just as good. I was hooked from page one.


    • I tried my best to like it by reading it to the end. The historical parts were just fine. I think it was changing of 3 character points of view that I didn't warm to the book. Maybe other books in the series are better


    • I would have given this 2.5 if that was possible because there was improvement over the first novel in the series. The series concept is an interesting, it just isn't well-executed.


    • Great read, although I think it's sad when you want a character to die despite the fact they could save themselves but too proud to do so.


    • This has to be the worst book I ever finished reading. I kept reading because I could not believe it would not get better. Do not waste your money on this one.




    • novel of drearyness rather. the story is odd, with little historical flavour beyond names and articles of clothing. and then there's that anti catholic thing again. i give up
