Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a trilogy about the land we’re drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love.…

With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland.

County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan’s directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O’Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives.

When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he’s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package.

Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself - and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona’s family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope - and love – alive.…

Don’t miss the next two books in the Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy!

    "Enjoyed the story, not so much the narrator"

    Similar to NR's other books, but that's what I expected so enjoyed the story. Left me looking forward to Book 2.
    I got used to the narrator after a while, but she went a bit overboard & over-dramatic in places. Wouldn't rush to listen to another book narrated by her.

    "Stunning!"

    I liked this book a lot more than I expected. Witches doing normal things like getting drunk because of a boyfriend argument is something I don't really see in novels of this nature and I found it refreshing. Witches are normal people too. The narration was exceptional as well.

    "Yet again"

    I read my first Nora Roberts book at 15 and fell in love with her ability to tell a story. She has done it again with this book and the performance was amazing as well. I can't wait to listen to the next in the trilogy!!! Nora Roberts rules!!

    "Hard to get through"

    I lost interest in the in the story more than once. The narrator and her constant hysterics were way over-the-top more often than not. She may be a good narrator on other stories, but it was too much for me to handle at times.

    Story
    "Enjoyable but not as good as Nora Roberts others"
    If you could sum up Dark Witch in three words, what would they be?

    Good vs evil.


    What other book might you compare Dark Witch to and why?

    I'd compare this to Nora Roberts other trilogies but it doesn't quite make the grade. However, once I got through her backstory (I understand this was essential to the plot), I did enjoy the books as a whole.


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

    Katherine Kellgren could read a story about ANYTHING and make it wonderful. I just wish she'd read all three books. The 2nd was by a gentlemen that didn't differentiate enough with the male and female and between-the-character voices and then the 3rd, the woman read better but sometimes I had difficulty, especially between Branna and Finn and had to rewind to figure out who was speaking. GO KATERINE KELLGREN!


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

    Again, once I got through the very boring back-story, for the most part it was good, but just not as good as the other Nora Roberts books I read, it was more that I wanted to get THROUGH this book as quickly as I could.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't feel the need to read every Nora Roberts as soon as they come out. I DO try to get her paranormal romance trilogies once they HAVE ALL come out. This was good, not great. (Maybe with Katherine Kellgren reading it, I would have enjoyed all the parts better). This is more a review all three, not just the one and mostly of the readers. Thank you for allowing me to give my opinion.

    "a gas guzzler"

    As always, Nora Roberts did it again. couldn't stop listening. I listen mostly while driving and caught myself taking the longest route and even past my destination to continue listening.

    Story
    "Same old same old"

    Magic is easy. All you have to do is wriggle your nose, or furrow your brow, or think really really hard about making that feather twist in the wind. Somehow, I have trouble believing that the descendants of three children involved in an incident in the 11th century know all about the circumstances as if it happened last week, even though they are meeting, as adults, cousins for the first time. And of course the whole story is really just gift wrapping for some hot sex, which personally I find boring. So mote it be.

    "Cute story, painful narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, the story is good, a little repetitive but a light read.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Katherine Kellgren’s performances?

    No, she was like listening to an overzealous theater professor. Way too over the top and fake. Pulled you right out of the story.
