The final Guardians Trilogy novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Bay of Sighs and Stars of Fortune.
As the hunt for the Star of Ice leads the six guardians to Ireland, Doyle, the immortal, must face his tragic past. Three centuries ago, he closed off his heart, yet his warrior spirit is still drawn to the wild. And there's no one more familiar with the wild than Riley - and the wolf within her....
An archaeologist, Riley is no stranger to the coast of Clare, but now she finds herself on unsure footing, targeted by the dark goddess who wants more than the stars, more than the blood of the guardians. While searching through Irish history for clues that will lead them to the final star and the mysterious Island of Glass, Riley must fight her practical nature and admit her sudden attraction to Doyle is more than just a fling. For it is his strength that will sustain her and give her the power to run towards love - and save them all....

I enjoy NR's work and am a big fan. This 3rd book had a few unexpected elements (no spoilers from me) and some expected elements. When you have a Seer as one of the main characters, you get a glimpse of what is coming.
While I enjoyed most of the performance, it was difficult to hear the difference between Bran & Doyle much of the time. And there were a few times the lead ladies sounded alike. That was the most disappointing thing about this story for me. Even with that, I am glad they didn't change performers. That is a jolt for me.
I was taken away on a journey with this trilogy which is exactly what I want and expect from NR!
This is a typical Nora Roberts trilogy, and maybe that's the problem. I expect more from a trilogy then I got from this. For a story that covers three books, there was little to no character growth. In particular, Sasha made me want to virtually smack some backbone into her. I can understand hesitancy and uncertainty at the beginning, but by book three, she shouldn't turn into a quivering heap of irritation at every challenge.
But that was true of all the characters. Other than the hook-ups, there is little difference in most of them from the first book to the last (with the exception of the mermaid). A good story isn't enough any more. You need good characters to go with them, and Roberts might have pulled this batch out one too many times.
There was not as much a distinction between the voices of the characters as I'm previous books. This meant I was often confused on who was speaking. Also the end of the storey seemed rushed. once they got to their destination it seemed there were lots of details skimmed over to finish the story. it could hasn't been a four book series with the quest to end the witch at the end.
Absolutely wonderful series! I waited patiently for book 2&3 to be released! From Stars of Fortune to Island of Glass! Excellent series! In my opinion this is Nora Roberts best!
Loved it! I know I will listen to it again. I read the 1st and 2nd but will get the audio version to listen to them too! I will also purchase this one's written version as well. Nora knocked it out of the park again!
I would because Saskia Maarleveld made the story
She did wonderful on all of them men and women
I wanted to but I had to go to bed so I listen in 2
I read the first 2 books in this series, and I am sorr. I wish I had listened to them, they were almost unbearable to get through. Listening to Saskia Maarleveld read this book made this third book so much more enjoyable.
"Really enjoyed these books!"
These books were great, I really enjoyed them. The narrator was excellent and story really lovely.
Really great book, Love the Terry Pratchett reference. Nice finish to this series. Looking forward to the next one.
