I *LOVED* this book! Nora Roberts is the queen of trilogies, and BLOOD BROTHERS is the start of another winning romantic paranormal trilogy.
Cal, Fox, and Gage were only ten when they unleashed the demonic power trapped beneath the Pagan Stone. Every seven years, for seven days, a horrible and deadly power is unleashed in Hawkins Hollow. People commit horrible acts, and then can't remember doing any of it.
For these three men, it's been twenty-one years since whatever entity resided in that glade was let loose. Now, it's up to them to stop it before it's too late.
When Quinn comes to town, looking to research these strange events and turn them into a book, her presence seems to make the power of the three men even stronger -- but it also makes the "entity" stronger, as well. When Layla and Cybil are also drawn to Hawkins Hollow, the three men and three women band together to stop the horror that grips this town every seven years.
As I said, I really loved this book, and I can't wait for the next two books in the series. This is another winner, and fans of Ms. Roberts' THE KEY TRILOGY and the DANCE UPON THE... series will definitely enjoy THE SIGN OF SEVEN trilogy!
This is start of new trilogy. I bought on a Friday night and by Sunday am - read it all. This is a book of secrets- by the 3 main guys- by the town- by the 3 women involved. There are several scenes that made me shiver. She uses wonderful descriptions of the "encounters" to the point that you are there when the demon appears. Her men are real acting- not super heroes- but flesh and blood. The actions of everyone in the book draw you into their life. One of the mothers in the book is so real that you can identify with mothers you have known. And the father of Caleb is like so many real people I know.
I guess what I am saying- This is Roberts best book in a long time. You are actually there where this happens.
I am giving the book "10" stars. Only did that 1 time before.
This book was recommended by my Mom. At first I was skeptical as I knew Nora Roberts wrote romances; but MAN!! Was I in for a TREAT!!
Hawkins Hollow is the typical peaceful, loving town, where everyone knows another by name, and give a helping hand if their neighbor needed it.
But then one fateful night in July, at the stroke of midnight; three boys unleash an evil. Now every 7 years, for 7 days; evil walks the quit town of Hawkins Hollow bringing nothing but choas, sorrow, and death to all that dwell there.
Together the three boys grow into adult hood, dealing with what they've released and trying to put an end to what they have done. Will they be able to solve this dark mystery? Will they be able to except the help of outsiders? Will the 7 days of darkness end?
A must read. You will not regreat it and you will find it very hard to put this book down. This is just the first of the three books. Enjoy it and make sure you have a good sturdy chair; this will keep you on the edge of your seat.
This was my first Nora Roberts book and I LOVED it! I cannot wait until the next one comes out. It's about 3 kids who go out into the woods to camp out on the eve of their 10th birthday and unleash something evil. It is similar to Stephen King's "IT" in that they get together again and again into their adulthood to fight the evil that has taken hold of their quaint little town. It is mysterious, scary, romantic and so much more. I breezed right through it because it just had so much going on. The characters are great. Such a good book!
Excellant beginning to trilogy. Cannot wait for next one! Nora Roberts always a great read.
