Edit Did You Know? This was around the same time the Kung Fu movie genre was rising due to the popularity of Bruce Lee who passed away a year earlier. An example of this is Bruce Lee's famous "One-Inch Punch" where he could generate explosive power from a punch traveling a short distance. Iron Fist performs a similar feat when he harnesses his Chi to also generate explosive power to get through tough obstacles. Yet by the last episode, he is stated to "only" be facing assault charges against the DEA agents who came to raid Colleen Wing's studio.
Even being a billionaire, it's a virtual certainty that his crimes wouldn't have been "forgotten" by the authorities, much less "forgiven. Quotes Danny Rand : I've been doing this for 15 years. Claire Temple : But not against the Hand. Danny Rand : I know. You're right.

Short-Lived and Easily Forgotten TV Series From the '70s | ReelRundown
Add episode. Clear your history. IMDb Everywhere. Panthea is a daughter of leisure who's father is in charge of the village and they live in the castle. She is promised in marriage to a knight who loves her, but she just can't seem to be happy with that. A mute woman arrives in town just as things start to change.
The part of the book that I sometimes have trouble with is the Scribe and how the woman got to the village. But if I get past that confusion the story itself is very interesting. The Black Plague starts to break out and we see how everyone reacts differently to the death and destruction. The hardest part of the book is reading the descriptions of the Black Plague doing its killing, but I think Ginger handles that well.
Overall this is a very interesting book that sets itself apart by the unique subject matter it brings to light. Oct 31, Carly rated it really liked it. 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. 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 When I decide I want to read a book, it is usually a snap decision. This book lost me almost from the start because I just did not get it. So, I read some reviews and gave myself some background about this series and this author. That was a huge help as it put the book in perspective, and I got it. In the Arms of Immortals is quite a book, and it is about so much more than just the Black Death. I will admit that I found many parts of this book to be disturbing and I did have some difficulty reading it, but it is a very gripping story about spiritual warfare.
The author did a fantastic job of researching and writing this story. I am glad I decided to take the extra time to get to know what this series is about before giving up on this book because I would have missed out on a really good story. This book may not be for the faint of heart, but there are some wonderful lessons to be learned in this story that is written by a very talented writer. So, give it a try and you decide. Aug 24, Christy Lockstein rated it it was amazing. It is a beautiful October day in 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! Jan 06, Rachel rated it it was ok Shelves: historical-fiction. 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 , 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. Not the baron's proud daughter, Panthea.
Or the powerful night who lives her, Armando.

Not the priest, Lazzaro, who angers at Gio, his lost love, and the baron who enslaved him. The books goes through the lives of these five characters. Marisska wants to help, but can't speak. More and more people die. The only way to live is to accept grace and mercy, to forgive and be forgiven. While ITAOI does incorporate such topics as angels, religion, God, art, power, oppression, control, disease, it leaves a lot out.
There's so much that isn't clear, and it really bugs me. I'm still left with a lot of questions. And a lot of things bugged me about this book. I haven't read any of her other books, but I was told the first book is a lot better. Sep 16, Wendy rated it liked it. 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 In the her second book about how women changed the Church Ms Garrett has chosen the time of the Black Plague. Although the horrors of the plague are described in graphic detail we encounter a world that is populated by angels and demons walking amidst the population unseen except by a few.
These angels are the old fashioned angels, large and strong and strange looking capable of fighting a good fight for a human covered by the Blood of Jesus, not sissy looking babies. It was rather refreshing in that manner.
I did find the greusome descriptions of the effects of the plague rather unsettling but obviously well researched. The story moved along quickly and the characters were developed in such a way as to make me care about their thoughts and actions. I didn't think it was as good as "In the Shadow of Lions" but still found it an interesting read. Sep 09, Virginia rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-ive-endorsed.

She reveals the workings of the spiritual world, and how the beings who dwell there intersect with ours. This story is chilling, powerful, and beautifully detailed.
This book has it all — detailed research, flesh-and-blood characters, and a captivating tale that kept me enthralled from beginning to end. Sep 17, Jane Maritz rated it liked it. 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 lives I 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 comfort This book is an interesting mix of current and historical fiction, taking Mariskka back in time to explore past events. It might be sad to say that I'm much more comfortable with seeing people in shades of gray rather than black and white; good and evil; saved or not saved.
Of course, the historical events were intriguing to me - Sicily in the s during the Black Death. I appreciated the very human element of the characters and the symbolism found throughout the book. And while this might not be my first pick of genres in the future, I enjoyed the opportunity to explore it through this review.
Jul 27, Alex rated it it was amazing. I really liked this book. Ginger Garrett definitely has a brilliant way of transporting the reader into the pages of the book. 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 will be inte I really liked this book. I will be interested to read more in Garrett's 'Chronicles of the Scribe' series. Jan 23, Jessica rated it it was amazing.
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!
Oct 04, Carmen rated it liked it. This book is the second in a series. 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. Oct 01, Dina Sleiman rated it it was amazing. Bizarre but beautiful medieval thriller about the black death. Imagine Frank Peretti meets C. 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. Jun 07, Mary Bronson rated it it was amazing Shelves: women-fiction , paranormal , historical-fiction , favorites.
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. Dec 09, Unicorn-san added it Shelves: borrowed-or-lent-to-me. 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 Aug 08, Trisha rated it it was ok Shelves: fiction. I would have given this 2. The series concept is an interesting, it just isn't well-executed. Sep 28, Cindyanne rated it really liked it.

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. Oct 26, Sharon rated it did not like it. 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. Aug 17, Ahuvah rated it liked it.
