Publisher's Summary

Standing on the cliffs of 12th-century Ireland following the disappearance of his twin, Hoyt Mac Cionaoith is visited by the goddess Morrigan and is charged with the ultimate of tasks: saving his and all future worlds.

His enemy, the beautiful but deadly vampire queen Lilith, has had over 2,000 years of experience in cruelly killing and changing humans into one of her own - including Hoyt's brother, Cian.

Now, Hoyt, a sorcerer, must travel across the world and through time to find and train the five others Morrigan has prophesized will join him as a circle and do battle against Lilith's army of vampires on Samhain in the land of Geall.

But just who is the witch, the shape-changer, the scholar, the warrior and the vampire? How will this unlikely band of six prepare and become one with less than three months until the possible end of the world?

Following the arrival of Glenna Ward - a modern day witch with a knack for making her own kind of magic, the kind that makes his heart melt - Hoyt must find the strength to save the world, and a love that knows no bounds.

Complete the circle: listen to all three books in Nora Roberts' Circle Trilogy, including Book 2, Dance of the Gods, and Book 3, Valley of Silence.

    "didn't know Blair was a 1940s male gangster."

    had a very hard time getting past the voices. Blaire was the worst. she sounded like the cartoon mobster in the old bugs bunny cartoons.

    "Morrigan Review"

    Took me a little time to get into the story but once the story took hold I was hooked. I look forward to the rest of the trilogy.

    "Old man narrator"

    Sophomoric platitudes and an old voice for a young sorcerer put this listen at the bottom.

    "Excellent"

    Morrigan's Cross is an excellent story all around. I read it previously and was correct in thinking that it would be a great audio book. It was better than I thought.
    Recommended.
    Please note, this is the first part of a trilogy.

    this belt 4th or 5th or 10th of the story. and they still open. Nora Roberts could you write directions to the nearest grocery store I think it was the most exciting works as a rat.

    "Narrator is unbearable"

    The story is the same as ever other and can't even hold my attention. What did hold my attention was the horrible voices of the narrator and his need to make wet smacking noises every two seconds. It was a waste of a credit!!!

    "My bestbuy this year"

    My Mum has been urging me to give NORA Roberts a try for years and I finally succumbed. Morrigan's Cross is the first of the Circle Trilogy. The evil vampire Lillith is leading her army to conqure the human world and enslave human kind and six heros must lead the resistance to stop her. Five extraordinary people and their vampire trainer come together and so the circle is born. This is fantasy at its finest. The style is highly readable and the characterisation is superb. The characters are wonderfully drawn and both likeable and deeply complex. This is as much a saga of love and friendship as it is good verses evil, with a good dose of magic and monsters thrown in. I just fell in love with this book and its sequels and I can't recommend them highly enough.

    "Morrigan's Cross Trilogy"

    This is the first of a trilogy by Nora Roberts. The three books take the reader from modern day New York to Ireland and to a mythical island in the middle ages. The books ae basically the fight between good and evil with several unusual twists in the characters. Each book is complete on its own but to read the three is very satisfying. Nora Roberts draws the characters in the first books and fleshes them out through the series. They are well thought out and believable as are the evil ones. Nora Roberts never goes to far with the horror that the evil ones can do but can bring her readers imagination to work on what is not written. I would certainly recommend this book to all those who enjoy fantasy fiction and a good read.

    "Terrible narration"

    Story might not be bad but it is hard to get past the dreadful narration. Incomprehensible in large parts and the accents are awful, particularly for the female characters as others have noted. Wish I'd read more reviews before wasting credits on this series.

    "Shonky performance really put me off"

    Just about got to the end of this despite the off-putting narration. His portrayal of all the female characters is awful especially the cringeworthy "nu yawk" accent.

    It's possible I would have enjoyed this with a different narrator so the story gets two stars.

    "well"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am not sure


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    the narrator


    How could the performance have been better?

    a different narrator


    Any additional comments?

    i purchased this book based on the comments I read. Word to the wise listen to the clip first. The premise of the book sounds amazing but was not brought to life by the dreary narration. It sucked the life out of the characters so you did not like any of them!
