In East Salem, the elite St. Adrian's Academy is at the nexus of a satanic apocalypse - and the fatal tide is rising. When Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights is reunited with the pagans who commissioned it, a dark prophecy begins to unfold in East Salem, beginning with a savage double-murder by hellish creatures straight out of the painting itself. The lone survivor of the attack, a seventeen-year-old Brit, finds sanctuary at Tommy Gunderson's home - and the place is soon surrounded by demons who seem to be biding their time…but for how long? Tommy's pond has been contaminated with Provivilan - an insidious drug that could transform New York City's children into an army of violence-addicted murderers. But for an occult cabal in the upper echelons of Linz Pharmaceuticals, contaminating the water supply is just part of an ancient conspiracy against all of humankind. As the clouds gather, Tommy and Dani realize they must infiltrate Linz and St. Adrian's to stop the dissemination of Provivilan. Even then, it could take a tangible eruption of the battle between angels and demons to save humanity from the supernatural evils that have been summoned to East Salem.
Where does Fatal Tide rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Among my favorites.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved how much detail is used to make the concept really interesting.
Which scene was your favorite?
The battles and all the explanations of what was going on. I liked the tie up in the end of everything that happened thorough out the series.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes it was. I did listen in one sitting. It was hard to stop till it was over. I was sad when it ended. I hope Lis keeps going on with this series.
Any additional comments?
Even though the concept seemed far fetched it was so detailed that it made you want to find out if the evidence that was used to explain what was going, was true.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Elitist, snobby Rapture people who watch fox news
Has Fatal Tide turned you off from other books in this genre?
No, others tend to be at least factual. This book was extremely non factual because the "Pagans are coming to get us and the world will end" themed. Other books, if they are not sure, they are honest enough to say something may or may not be true. This bitch has got some nerve, it is like she is possessed by some thing that seems to convey that she is here to enlighten the rest of us about shit she know is not true, not historical. Ed and Lorraine Warren are honest about things and they actually dealt with this kind of stuff on a lesser scale, so what makes her think that she can write crap like this.
It is people like her that make others embarrassed to be associated with Christianity. I really thought there was going to be some part where some things get clarified, put to right, but no, it is the same crap you hear from people like Pat Robertson, John Hagey and Jerry Farwell. No wonder people have distanced themselves from any mention of the word "God"
What about Devon O'Day’s performance did you like?
She was great, nothing bad can be said about her performance and how she read the book and did the characters. She is a great reader and I hope I hear more books that she narrates.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The series had it's moments, it wasn't completely terrible, I just get tired of these people who think that unless you are their type of "Christian" then you have no worth and every thing else is bad, terrible and "Satanic."
Any additional comments?
I don't care if people have a certain view, but if I were to write a story regarding the early days of judo-christian facts that people seem to ignore, I would be called anti-Semitic, anti-christian and so on. The facts about the Native American's being cannibals is a joke, and the Druids practicing human sacrifice (they may have, that has not been established) and that the Christians came to sooth the savages, it makes me want to find the author and ask her if she went to the Fox News University where she too works and is suppose to be a legal analyst, I hope she does not teach Civil Rights and Liberties. I thought it would be a fun spiritual paranormal dealing with some evil that came from some crazy man, ya know, like a lot of people in the old testament, I mean, didn't they do sacrifice as well? Was it all animals or could it also have been human as well?
I don't watch Fox News so I was not aware of this author. I would have had a better view of the series, and yes, I listened to all three, if she would have been more fact based rather than the Satanic Panic of the 80s-90s and make me think of what Salem, MA was like and the people who existed back then.
There were some funny little moments and the characters were likeable, but it was too much like listening to the Rick Santorums and that stupid brunette bubbled headed bimbo on "The Five" who hates the fact that we have a president that shows respect for all people's belief system. Then again, if any of them were any good, they would be working for better networks though all of them have been dummied down since the Cheney administration.
If I would have known that she was a legal person on Fox, I would have not even gotten it. But, I might have on the hope that in their spare time they are not as stupid as they are on the show. I thought it was entertainment, not real stuff. I think the non factual shit, and that is what it was, is what turned me off and I thought it would stop or clarify at some point, but I guess she is not capable of being factual and now I know why.
Ms. Wiehl, keep thy religion to thyself or at least be factual, and own your crap. Don't fart and blame it on the dog. And, if you would make that a constitutional amendment, I would back you 100%. I wonder though, didn't her family, ancestors, get converted many moons ago, or were they just born with all the answers?
