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)
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.
Yes- because it's thoroughly entertaining and performed superbly!
Can't pick- they were all done great, but if forced, I lean toward Keenan!
The regional and gender accents are great fun! Mr. Hill brings the book alive with a great energy with appropriate emotion that makes the audio version of this series wonderfully enjoyable. I found myself laughing out loud at times!
Here is my review of "Morrigan's Cross", the first book of the trilogy. My review stands for all 3 of the books. I really liked them all.
"I'm glad I didn't read the reviews before I bought this book, as I might have missed out on a very good read. I finished "Morrigan's Cross" (the first book in the Circle trilogy) and couldn't wait to start the second book, to which I am currently listening. I love the paranormal/mythological air of the story, and the coming together of the characters from different times. Yes, as someone pointed out, there is a slight resemblance to the story line in the Sign of 7 trilogy, but only in that a group of characters come together to fight evil; otherwise the story lines are different.
As far as the narrator, Dick Hill, I think he did a fine job and I enjoyed his narration. He does a great Irish brogue (I love Hoyt's voice), and I am able to distinguish the characters' voices with no problem. The comment was made by another reviewer that he made the female voices sound whiny. I think he did a very acceptable job for a man with a deep voice."
The second book of the Circle Trilogy, has all the characters together, ready to travel and train for the final showdown, against the vampires. The characters are charming, and what makes this story interesting. This one establishes the romance, between Blair and Larkin. It sets up everything for the final book, and by now, I'm ready to get the story over with. It's a good trilogy, and worth reading, but you really are looking forward to the last book, and an ending by the finish of this one.
Second book of the this trilogy. This book has romance, action, and mystery. It has the sorcerer, the witch, the scholar, the shapeshifter, the warrior, and the vampire. All from different worlds have to learn to work together for a common goal.
Definitely in the top 5
