Now she finds herself training a sorcerer from 12th century Ireland, a witch from modern day New York, a scholar and a shape changer from the mythical land of Geall. All that while trying to keep herself from staking the sixth of their circle and host: a vampire sired by Lilith, the vampire queen they've been charged with defeating on Samhain.
No stranger to butt-kicking, Blair finds herself taking a good whipping when it comes to that handsome and flirtatious Geallian, Larkin. And a couple of run-ins with Lilith's right-hand gal gives Blair more than she reckoned for, mentally and physically. But will she be able to stay afloat long enough to defeat Lilith's loyal in pre-battle bouts? Or will she find herself falling for the one thing she vowed never to give in to again? If the vampires don't do her in, Larkin is certainly up to the task.

"Paranormal fans are assured a good time, as is anyone who enjoys captivating fiction." (Publishers Weekly)
"Roberts' Celtic-flavored Circle trilogy features superbly crafted characters, three passionate romances, and a bewitching blend of magic and myth." (Booklist)
The story was good, and I'd like to listen to the next book in the series, but I hesitate because I find the narration irritating. The accents used were awful and the voices of the women were as well. It just didn't work for me.
The travel between worlds, getting to see Blair and Glenna cope with a world full of foreign concepts the way Larkin, Hoyt, and Moira have been since the beginning.
The few *poignant* exchanges between Cian and Moira throughout the book. Even though this particular installment is about Larkin and Blair (whose relationship I really do love), the rocky-as-yet relationship between Cian and Moira is my absolute favorite.
Truthfully, the scene between Moira and Cian following Moira's vampire-fighting demonstration - all anger and passion and fear and desperation.
A close second, however, would be Blair's showdown with "Fifi."
When the six of them make it to the Dance of the Gods and Moira pulls Cian into the Dance at the last second, despite the fact that "his kind" physically can't enter the Dance.
Interesting enough to keep my attention on a long car drive (maybe not my favorite but I like Nora Roberts' stories). Had a tough tine with narrator's choice for main character's voice but by about halfway through it didn't bother me overly much.
The book was from the start captivating, it pulled at your interest and tugged your curiosity to the point where you became anxious to find out what's next.
This book was the first one I read before I found out it was the second in a trilogy.
None! Its in a league all by itself. Not even the good books I've read really compare. It was just really good.
lol all of them, The variation was epic and not at all an unpleasant listen....Oh no Dick Hill nailed them all.
The books in this trilogy are worth the read/listen, all the details are in the right place to tug at the right emotion and will have you rooting for the characters before you know it. Honestly I have tons to say about the book but I dare you to read/listen for yourself and tell me what you think......Love these books
I just love this trilogy the female characters are so strong and good wins over evil i love the fact that it spans multiple periods of time You just cant wait to hear the next part
