Publisher's Summary

Sculptor Clare Kimball has captured the attention of the New York art world. But big-city success cannot burn away the half-remembered nightmares that have plagued Clare since childhood. These phantoms of the past have drawn her home to Emmitsboro, Maryland, to the small town where she grew up and where her father died in circumstances never really explained.

Not much in her hometown seems to have changed, but within the dark woods of Emmitsboro something evil spreads its poisonous power. Now the once-peaceful town is wrapped in a cloak of terror, hiding a treacherous heart. And now Clare must pay the price for digging up the secrets of the past...and confront an evil that may be unstoppable, because those who practice it believe it is divine.

    "More Suspense than Romance"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Divine Evil to be better than the print version?

    This is an older audio book, with the narrator presenting it as "Books on Tape." However, don't let that dissuade you. The narrator, Kimberly Farr, does an excellent job.


    What other book might you compare Divine Evil to and why?

    This is not so much a romance, but a suspense story with a little romance thrown in. If you are a fan of Robert's JD Robb series, then the graphic violence and satanism in the storyline will not bother you. I am a big fan of the JD Robb series, so I enjoyed this book very much.


    What about Kimberly Farr’s performance did you like?

    Good job with all the characters, both male and female.


    Any additional comments?

    Some reviewers have stated that this book is too graphic. Again, if you are looking for a typical romance, this is not your book. If you like Robert's suspense books (the Witness, the JD Robb series), then you will enjoy this one, too.

    "Divine Evil"
    Any additional comments?

    Listened to this audiobook about five years ago and decided to give it another shot. The story of a small town coven of devil worshipers is integrated with the typical Nora Roberts romance between a feisty and independent woman and the local sheriff. Personally, I could have done without the romance aspect, the reason I stopped listening years ago. The friction between the lovers is forced, a little too obvious an attempt by the author to create a lovers tension between the players … had me rolling my eyes. The mystery of the picture perfect little town hiding an evil secret is, however, a fun read.

    "another great Nora Robert's book!"

    When I started this book, I didn't think I would like the narrator. But when we got to the 2nd chapter I was in love with this narrator and the story had me hooked. There are so many twists that you can't see coming that really surprise and sometimes startle and even scare you a bit. Nora brings out another winner with this book.

    "Creeped me out"

    Must say I haven't finished this one yet & don't know that I will. The sacrifices/rapes/murders creep me out. I may finish it later but for now I'm on to Whiskey Beach. Narrator does a good job though.

    "Does Ms Roberts hire these readers herself?"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    no


    What other book might you compare Divine Evil to and why?

    any of the "in death" series by JD Robb


    How could the performance have been better?

    DEFINATELY if someone else had narrated it!


    Did Divine Evil inspire you to do anything?

    yes. not listen to this reader again.


    Any additional comments?

    Does Nora Roberts actually hire these narrators herself? I don't think so. Why would she want her books to sound so boring that you have to MAKE yourself listen some of these voices?!

    "Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Filling"

    This book is like eating chocolate cake with raspberry filling. It is pure fun and excitement. It has suspense, drama, and romance.

    "Capivating Listening"

    My daughter recently introduced me to books on audio on a recent road trip, unfortunately the J D Robb book is not available through Audible, so I picked this book for a 5 week business trip.? I enjoyed the book and even was able to introduce and interest a co-worker (I have dual jacks on my MP3).? The narrator was able to help you visualize almost every sense that was described. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has plenty of time to listen-it's one you won't want to stop.

    "ritualistic sadism"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    it is like a Stephen King book that leaves you feeling afraid. Books for entertainment should not do that.


    If you’ve listened to books by Nora Roberts before, how does this one compare?

    Not even close to her usually outstanding suspense and romance combination writing. This book was way to dark for Nora.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not sure there was one


    Do you think Divine Evil needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    This book should marketed as hard core cult worship and brutality.
