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.

"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)
If this is just the first book, boy am I in for a treat! This was the most amazing book yet! It is a story that goes beyond romance, it is a STORY! One that you can see, hear and feel. Nora should write more like this! Cannot wait to listen to book two!
A different narrator
Make the strong women characters sound wimpy, shallow and a mockery of women. His women's voice range is poor.
The men sound similar.
I wish I had listened to the reviews.
I had enjoyed the print books
I have listened to excellent narrators that evoke the feeling of the books. Male and female narrators
Mr Hill has a compelling voice but not for Nora Roberts book.
But then I have found very few Nora Roberts book well narrated.
Apparently a lot of people did enjoy it, and I don't understand why so not sure who those people are. Maybe die-hard Nora Roberts fans?
Couldn't wait to be done with Morrigan's Cross, forced myself through it. Picked out my next listen well before I was done with it which is Gena Showalter's Beauty Awakened: Angels of the Dark, Book 2.
okay nothing spectacular
The book left no impression on me and I can't now recall many of the scenes, mostly due to poor character development.
I have only read one other Nora Roberts book more than 10 years ago, think it was called Divine Evil, I really enjoyed it and still remember some details. I can't say the same for Morrigan's Cross. I don't understand why it has such good reviews, I can only speculate it has something to do with Nora's large fan base that loves anything she does. While I enjoyed the premise of all the characters, they were so poorly developed that I didn't feel like I knew any one of them well by the end of the story. I didn't feel any sexual tension within the romance of the story, and so that part fell majorly flat. The moment I started to think "well maybe this is getting better...", it ended. There is not enough interest for me to go on with the series. The narrator was a little annoying with the female voices, but I find this common with male narrators. Male voices and accents were great, but I didn't really enjoy his voice overall. I would not recommend purchasing this one.
Mother of teenaged bear, Wife to chaos, Warrior
This book was different it pitted so many different characters each one having his own personality and reasons for fighting in this battle.
Larkin he made me laugh
I liked this book. I liked the different characters and the story. It wasn't the same as every other vampire, witch, sorcerer book I've read. It transcended worlds with strong and weak characters each bringing out personalities of their own.
This book was not like Nora's other trilogy books. It started off dark and got darker. The narrator's brogue did not help with what I have come to expect of her other books.
Built you up for excitement that never delivered. the characters wre good but plot not developed
No but this one was bad
Didnt like all the brogue
all of them
This is book one of the trilogy and, while Nora's talent makes it hard to choose a favorite,this series is one of her very best. I must really like the series because I've read it once and listened to it twice. (Other fav series written by Roberts: Three Sisters, Irish Jewels, Key, Chesapeake, and In The Garden). I always cry at the end as the last book is wrapping up and to me that is the sign of a great book. Takes me awhile to get over missing the characters. Well written and excellently narrated, you can immerse yourself in the story. I HIGHLY recommend spending your credits on this series.
The detail given to the story and how you can connect with each character. I like more than just a surface story. This delivers.
Too many too choose just one
I was truly disappointed when it ended. A great story that brought an interesting blend of characters together. The narration was good, although there were times when I became confused as to whom was speaking due to overlap of accents and speaking styles. I would definitely get the next book in this series!
He did an overall good job with the mens voices. The females weren't bad, except for Blairs. Blair was supposed to have a Boston accent but I kept expecting her to say "don't cha know" at the end of everything she said. Her voice came across as someone from Minnesota.
Not at first. I was skeptical about listening to this book to begin with because it has to do with vampires, witches, sorcerers and so forth. I'm not into that type of book and after reading the Three Sisters Island Trilogy, my mind was set that I wouldn't like it. This book overall wasn't horrible. It took me a while to get in to. I started in some months back and stopped when I finished chapter 1. I listened/read a few other books before deciding to finish what I started.
"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.
