I have to say that MORRIGAN'S CROSS is the very first book of Ms. Roberts' that I didn't care for; didn't, in fact, even finish. It could be my own personal dislike of historical romance, but as this was more in the time travel/paranormal vein, I don't think that's true. The problem, at least for me, was unlikeable characters I couldn't relate to, coupled with too many Irish, Gaelic, and unfamiliar terms that the book's added glossary only complicated.
I won't knock Ms. Roberts, because she is an unbelievably talented author who I admire. I'm also the world's largest Eve Dallas fan, and have loved THE KEY TRILOGY and all of her romantic suspense releases. Let's just say that, for me, MORRIGAN'S CROSS was a miss, instead of Ms. Roberts' usual hit.
I loved this book - It is about witches, sorcerors and vampyres but it was a really good read with so much intesnity. The building of the main characters were fantastic and it totallyl left me begging for the 2nd in the trilogy set. I can't wait to see what happens next and if the worlds will be saved.
For Some reason it took me a bit to get into this one, Which is unusual for a Nora Roberts book. But it did get me sucked in and it was again well written and the story off a multitude of characters woven together.
Cian is turned into a vampire in 1128. His Brother Hoyt, a great sorcerer, begins a journey to get his back that takes him to modern day New York and Ireland. 6 are required for his task. He convinces his vampire brother to join him. It is a challenge for their small group to stay clear of the vampires and learn to fight them. A great story with magic and the supernatural woven in.
Book 1 of the Circle trilogy, which was all in all a good read. Not too many surprises would be my only criticism...you can see the end coming a mile off, but very satisfying all the same.
...In which our heroes' histories are brought to light, and there is a drawing together of forces, both dark and light, at the behest of the Goddess Morrigan.
Loved this book. Different from any other Robert's books that I've read in that it is more "gothic" but still radiates with the Irish flair she likes. Couldn't wait to read the next in the trilogy.
