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.

What the Critics Say

"This well-plotted, finely detailed paranormal adventure is driven by richly developed characters, making it a cut above others in this subgenre, and among Roberts's best." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Disappointing"

    I, too, got this as a $4.95 purchase via gift cert, and am SO glad I didn't waste a credit on it. I don't mind the narrator so much, it's the actual story. I had hopes that this wouldn't be a "bodice ripper" kind of story, as I am not a big fan of romantic fiction, but the story sounded promising, so I gave it a try. I've spent a significant amount of time rolling my eyes listening to the dialogue between the sorcerer and the witch. Really? I mean, really?? I've liked other Nora Roberts' books, but this one is a huge disappointment. The characters are interesting enough to deserve better than the treatment they are getting here. There is some funny dialogue and a few entertaining situations, but not enough IMO to save the story. Routing this one to the dustbin.

    "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.

    I needed to get through the first few chapters to get hooked but I thought it was definitely worth it.

    "loved it."

    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.

    Story
    "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!!!

    Story
    "Love this series!"
    What made the experience of listening to Morrigan's Cross the most enjoyable?

    The convenience -- I've read the series several times as it's really one of my favorites (from NR, at least), but it was really lovely to be able to listen to it as I was driving on my way to work!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationships between the Circle. The six of them had an exceptional connection as a group, but also each character had a different sort of deep connection to every other member of the Circle as well.
