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.

    Story
    "Enjoyable to listen to the characters come to life"
    What made the experience of listening to Morrigan's Cross the most enjoyable?

    I love the way the characters came life for me the story itself is fantastic, but to listen to the emotion added to it is great. Nora Roberts is a great author and has away of brining a story and characters to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Morrigan's Cross?

    The death of one character and the showing of emotion of another and how deep it really goes. You'll have read it or listen to it to know who I mean.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    In the beginning when he calls the storm and lighting it's a fantastic imagery.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Look to second answer.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a must read or listen to also you have two others 'The Dance of The Gods' and 'The Vally of Silence'

    "Not my story type"
    What disappointed you about Morrigan's Cross?

    While I truly enjoy Nora Robert's stories, I do not enjoy this type of theme. Nora Roberts writes very captivating stories and this is just one that I did not enjoy.


    What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I am sure that others will enjoy this book, just not my style.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    I am sure.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    As I said, Nora Roberts writes very captivating stories, this was just not my type. I will continue to listen to stories she has written, just not this type.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen everyday to a story, I truly enjoy audible.

    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 good story"
    What did you like best about this story?

    This book was different it pitted so many different characters each one having his own personality and reasons for fighting in this battle.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Larkin he made me laugh


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "One of Nora Robert's best"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The detail given to the story and how you can connect with each character. I like more than just a surface story. This delivers.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many too choose just one


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "Really enjoyable listen"

    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!

    Story
    "Better than I thought"
    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.

    "Wow . . . oh Wow!!"
    What did you love best about Morrigan's Cross?

    This trilogy was more than I ever expected. Most of the time I love to reading Nora Roberts for her love stories and such. This story seemed so different from what I usually expect from her, however, I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. Most of the time I read books completely different from my older daughter. Of course being a teenage and all, she is totally into books on vampires. This is one series I believe I could pass onto her and she would enjoy it as much as I did.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Every other weekend I have a 7 hour round trip commute. Having this series made me look forward to the long road trip instead of dreading it. Have to thank both Nora Roberts as well as narrator Dick Hill for making that possible!!

    "Narrator makes the story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Morrigan's Cross to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I actually read the print version of Morrigan's Cross and listened to the other two in the series. I liked Dick Hill's portrayal of the characters so much I downloaded Morrigan's Cross just to hear him tell it.


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

    I've listened to this entire series and currently those are the only Dick Hill performances I have listened to. I plan on listening to more of his work.
