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.
very entertaining and worth the reading!I'm off to start on the 2nd!
