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.

This reality-like book, something that could happen, was very scary to think of, and horrifying in a book form, but didn’t scare me like a horror novel would have. I enjoy books that have fairies and the like and this one was by far the best I’ve listened to ever. Nora Roberts outdid herself!! Can’t wait to start her second in this series right away!!

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites listeners into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms.

I loved the account of where Michelle and Barack Obama came from. They were ordinary kids, growing up in tough lives as black children. I loved how Michelle told of the excitement of moving in to the White House and the things they changed for the better. I loved how Michelle stood up for her principles and affected change for children in such a positive way! I also felt bad for the outgoing President Obama and Michelle, to see what the country had elected to take over. Overall, such a wonderfully read and content of a book!!
