I was very excited to get this audiobook because I work 10 hour shifts and an audiobook is a great way to pass the time. I had read the book before and it is honestly one of my favorite trilogy's by Nora Roberts. However, after listening to it it reminds me a lot of her other series based in Ireland. Similar character descriptions and personalities which is a bit repetitive especially if you consider reading other books of the same author.
My biggest disappointment for the audiobook was the narrator. Her pitch and volume were very off a lot of the time and the biggest part that irritated me was her voice when she voiced The women. The ladies in this book are great beings in the prime of their lives and the narrator voiced them as if they were 50 year of Irish housekeepers. I am not sure I will buy the other two books in the trilogy unless they have a different narrator.
I love books that show caring and love among the main characters. This book shows a family that most folks would want to be part of.
When the "mortals" almost died to protect the witches. And when Lona (the newcomer), speaks in defense of Finbar (the fourth),
A book that makes you feel good about yourself after reading.
Couldn't even finish the book. The narrator makes every Irish woman sound like an exhausted senior citizen.
I don't think so.
Disappointing. Predictable plot like.
Absolutely! Nora Roberts comes through again with a tale of mystical magic in this enthralling book. She pulls you right into the story from the first chapter.
How the characters are developed and how well she draws you into their lives.
When Iona and Boyle finally admitted their feelings for each other.
It made me laugh because the characters were so believable and life-like. I also love anything involving magic, so this story ticks all boxes for me.
Can't wait to listen to the other two books in this trilogy!
I enjoyed this book immensely! The story is full of magic, great lovable characters, and the reader is fantastic. The story kept moving nicely. The standard fall for each other, argument, get back together was nicely done without being overly long or bitter. And the romance vs story balance, that so many books fail at, was very nicely balanced so that the story could have almost stood on it's own without the added benefit of the relationship.
Definately worth the time and credit invested in this book, author and reader. Enjoy!

Normally like Nora Roberts but this one I could have, and wish I had skipped. I will not be continuing this series. Just to predictable and the Irish accent got old fast.
