    Having traveled through the Dance of the Gods to the land of Geall, the circle finds themselves convincing, then training, the people of Geall to defeat Lilith's vampire army. The Valley of Silence is a forbidding place for the battle of all battles, but the circle continues to prepare, through magic and a few early stakeouts that test their strength individually and as a team.

    Story
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This trilogy was more than I ever expected. Most of the time I love to reading Nora Roberts for her love stories and such. This story seemed so different from what I usually expect from her, however, I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. Most of the time I read books completely different from my older daughter. Of course being a teenage and all, she is totally into books on vampires. This is one series I believe I could pass onto her and she would enjoy it as much as I did.


    Any additional comments?

    I gave this an overall 4 in stead of 5 stars. If they allowed 4.5 stars, I would have given it that. Near the end some of the book became just a little predictable, but that really was ok and I still looked forward to hearing everything until the end. The only other complaint I have it that the trilogy came to an end. I'm hoping Ms Roberts may find it in her heart to fill in some of their lives after the big fight and before the ending where they are all much older. Knowing some of her past stories, I believe this could be possible. Thanks again for another fabulous story!!

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Every other weekend I have a 7 hour round trip commute. Having this series made me look forward to the long road trip instead of dreading it. Have to thank both Nora Roberts as well as narrator Dick Hill for making that possible!!

  • Beautiful Ruins

    Story

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    What did you love best about Beautiful Ruins?

    Not sure what was my favorite part about this book. It wasn't something that I would normally read. I read others reviews and it seemed very interesting. I am so glad I listened to the other reviews and bought this. I truly enjoyed all the characters and the description of the places they all lived.


    What does Edoardo Ballerini bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator voice was very pleasant to listen to. If you are an audible book person, you know how much the voice can make or break a book. He made it very enjoyable to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but I usually only listen to my audible books while driving. So I found myself looking for reasons to get on the road even with gas prices high.

    His interest in her was purely professional...or so he told himself. Nash Kirkland had sought out Morgana Donovan, self-proclaimed witch, to help him research his latest screenplay. The hardheaded skeptic didn't believe for a minute she was what she professed to be, but Nash somehow found himself falling under her bewitching spell. Nash had never trusted his feelings. How could he be sure the irresistible passion he felt was real and not just some conjurer's trick?

    What disappointed you about Captivated & Entranced?

    I was looking forward to a large story line regarding her abilities. Instead its seems to be all about the sex life. I kept waiting for something more but it never happened. I finally gave up on this book and returned it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    I have been enjoying Nora Roberts for a very long time and have enjoyed many of her books. Nothing can stop me from continuing to enjoy her stories. This may have only been the third disappointment in all of the many works I have read by Ms Roberts. I am looking forward to many more excellent stories.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoyed the voice of Therese Plummer and would have been very happy to listen to her voice some more. I have to wonder if she got tired of narrating the sex scenes as well.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Maybe there was more substance to this story beyond where I listen too. I believe I gave it a fair chance but never had to give up. I was just too tire of listening to the sex scenes.

    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    What did you love best about The Last Boyfriend?

    The discussions between the three brothers is very easy to relate to if you have siblings of your own. The friendships between the girls is also something I experience in my own life. Justine's knowledge of her own boys makes me giggle every time she shocks her boys with a comment they had no idea she knew about.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you have been a Nora Roberts reader for a long time, you should really read or listen to this trilogy. It has everything you would expect from Ms Roberts. I found the discussions between the brothers to be my favorite part of the books. I can't tell you how many times I laughed out loud while listening to this series. I have been reading Nora Roberts books for a long time but I found this set to be extra refreshing. I have to make some long commutes between states every other weekend and I listen to audible books instead of music. I almost look forward to these long drives just so I can continue listening to this series. Thank you Ms Roberts for making my travel time much more enjoyable!! Also, I love the voices MacLeod Andrews uses for all the characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How the three brothers interact between each other. Reminds me of how my siblings speak with each other. Very easy to relate to.


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have enjoyed his presentation for each character.
