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!

    "Great story, exhausting perfomance"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narration. It seems the voice artist only has one dramatic level, and that's Overload. There's very little dramatic rest, even when the characters are having a 'quiet' conversation. I was exhasted after the first chapter. You do get used to it a bit, as the story works so well, in spite of the narration.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Nora Roberts is a master of her craft, and I was very happy to venture back to Ireland with her. I love how she blends the supernatural, the modern, and the historic. I also love her characters, and how 3 dimensional they are.


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

    I don't think so.

    "The narration was fine!"

    I put off listening to this book for a couple of years because of the poor reviews about the narration. What a load of rubbish in my view. The narration perfectly suited the book and I thought Katherine Kellgren did a fine job. The book is a typical Nora Roberts magical story and really you know what you're going to get. That aside it was a very enjoyable listen.

    I will read anything Nora Roberts pens and I will listen to anything Katherine Kellgren narrates. Her depth or narration brings the book to life.

    If you love Nora Roberts or the paranormal, then you'll love this trilogy. It's one of my 3 favorite trilogies of hers.

    "I LOVED THIS NARRATOR!!!"
    If you could sum up Dark Witch in three words, what would they be?

    Highly entertaining book!


    Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first listen to KK, and I was very impressed. Sadly the rest of the series used other readers so I will not be buying those books in audible form. I have read other comments on how the different narrators did not measure up and I would rather not be disappointed as I was so entertained by this reading.


    Any additional comments?

    I can honestly say the story was great, but that I am not sure if it was great because of the narrator, or if it would have still been great without her. I suspect the narrator made this book.

    "Loved the book/s..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I certainly would recommend


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Witch?

    The entire book, for me and my hubby, was the enchantment and the narrator who gave me a feeling I was there IN the story, looking on.


    Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I cannot say; I've just begun to read this type book, it was NOT in my typical selections however, I am NOW a 'FAN'... especially if SHE is the one reading!

    She brings life to the story


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me want MORE... I live this life; I love this life - it's what I DO.

    I was totally captivated. I want more with HER reading than any others as they would not do it justice.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a metaphysican- love the cadence and the realism and, Katherine's voice lent to the entire 'package'
