Publisher's Summary

Every seven years, on the seventh day of the seventh month, strange things happen. It began when three young boys - Caleb, Fox, and Gage - went on a camping trip to the Pagan Stone. And 21 years later, it will end in a showdown between evil and the boys who have become men - and the women who love them.

This modern-day legend draws reporter and author Quinn Black to Hawkins Hollow with the hope of making the eerie happening the subject of her new book. It is only February, but Caleb Hawkins, descendent of the town founders, has already seen and felt the stirrings of evil. Though he can never forget the beginning of the terror in the woods 21 years ago, the signs have never been this strong before.

Cal will need the help of his best friends, Fox and Gage, but surprisingly, he must rely on Quinn as well. She, too, can see the evil that the locals cannot, somehow connecting her to the town - and to Cal. As winter turns to spring, Cal and Quinn will shed their inhibitions, surrendering to a growing desire. They will form the cornerstone of a group of men and women bound by fate, passion, and the fight against what is to come from out of the darkness.

    Story
    "Female Voices are Terrible :("
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The Trilogy is GREAT! Bad narration - thank goodness he does not do the other two books.


    What other book might you compare Blood Brothers to and why?

    Nora's Vampire Trilogy has a similar feel, and I really enjoyed reading these in print.


    What didn’t you like about Phil Gigante’s performance?

    He cannot do realistic female voices. All the women either have exaggerated accents or sound like complete airheads, which is what Nora Roberts' heroines are NOT. I love this trilogy, but if Phil had done all three, I couldn't have made it through. I get the nails-on-a-chalkboard feeling when he performs women :(

    What made the experience of listening to Blood Brothers the most enjoyable?

    I don't usually like books about evil spirits, but decided to give it a try. The story line is well written and interesting. I definitely will listen to the next.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Demon at Hester's Pool

    "What the Heck!"

    Okay, this is my first review and I have been using Audible for probably about two years now. I have to say that this was the worst narration I have ever heard! I can't even get through the whole book. All of the males in the book sound like 12 year olds from a really bad B-rated Syfy movie and all of the females sound as if they were the cast from The Birdcage staring Robin Williams. I cannot finish this book! To those of you that have and will finish it, congratulations! Boy am I disappointed.

    "Fun Read"
    If you could sum up Blood Brothers in three words, what would they be?

    Surprise twist to mystery/fantasy/romance


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Brothers?

    When the two main characters went to the stone


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    main male character


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the saving of the dog


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the narrative bouncing around the three different (male) characters giving three different points of view. It was also fun to have a male as a main character

    Can't sit still or stay focused long enough to read a book. Audible is the only way I will give myself the opportunity to enjoy fiction.

    "Phil Gigante improves this book! Others fell SHORT"
    What did you love best about Blood Brothers?

    Phil Gigante and an unusual story line.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Brothers?

    Quinn''s strong character and Cal's likeable, honorable nature.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I returned the last 2 of the 3 in the trilogy. I felt like a BIG bait and switch happened with the 2 super rotten narrator that finished the trilogy. I when I buy amd Audio Book I wamt it to be one that I'd at least be willing to listen to a 2nd time. They made a mistake not having Gigante on the whole series. I don't care if you don't like his female narration there is no one that does male narration better and given the book is predominately about the three boys it needed to stay Gigante as the narrator.

    When I dont have a series I want.... I scroll through Gigantes' works. Boy was I unhappy to learn he was not on the full story.

    "Love it!"
    What made the experience of listening to Blood Brothers the most enjoyable?

    As always, the story is the most enjoyable part. I also enjoy the freedom to do other things while listening to the book. I listen to it at home, on my way to and from work, and at work.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the plot of the story. An unknown entity wreaking havoc on a small town, but a band of "brothers" do what it takes to keep the town safe.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    Gage. I liked how he made this "badass" character have a deep monotone voice. It's fitting for his description. However it was funny to hear the narrator portray a female voice when he has somewhat of a deep voice himself.


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

    I can never get enough of Nora Roberts' books, including this one. It makes me sad when they end, and even sadder when the series ends. I would read or listen to this book all day if I could.
