Their innocent bonding ritual led to seven days of madness, every seven years. And now, as the dreaded seventh month looms before them, the men can feel the storm brewing. Already they are plagued by visions of death and destruction. But this year, they are better prepared, joined in their battle by three women who have come to The Hollow. Layla, Quinn, and Cybil are somehow connected to the demon, just as the men are connected to the force that trapped it.
Since that day at The Pagan Stone, town lawyer Fox has been able to see into others' minds, a talent he shares with Layla. He must earn her trust, because their link will help fight the darkness that threatens to engulf the town. But Layla is having trouble coming to terms with her newfound ability - and this intimate connection to Fox. She knows that once she opens her mind, she'll have no defenses against the desire that threatens to consume them both.

Marie Caliendo should have read the entire series. It is so much more enjoyable when all three books in a trilogy are read by the same person, even if the book is from a different characters perspective or focus. Her voices were so much more believable and easy to listen to. I wish Brilliance would consider having the other two reworked. I am one who listens to my books, especially the Nora Roberts trilogies, over and over, but it will be hard for me to do that with these.
A lot of the paranormal stuff doesn't really make much sense to me but I still enjoy the charactors & can't wait to see how the series ends. This narrator is much better than the 1st book.
It's a very well-written, well-plotted, scary, romantic story.
The 6-pronged attack against the whole group. Very scary.
The walk to the Pagan Stone at the end of the book.
Just any overall interesting book to read...
I don't compare. I just read for entertainment...
None were favored.
Be careful what you ask for...
I like Nora Roberts so I like how she wrote the book but I don't like the fact that they used 3 different People to read her books.
So far I am enjoying this trilogy and am looking forward to the last of the three. The only wish that I would have is that the readers stay the same. I found it hard to recognize the characters by the readers voice if there is a different reader for each book. I have found this in other sequels as well. I would put out a plea to the authors to please keep the same readers for books that have sequels.
The Hollow, the second in the Trilogy of the Blood Brothers, proved to be an enjoyable listen that leaves the reader wanting to hear the end of the story. The narration is well done and adds to the drama of the story. Classic Nora Roberts!
This is not the first Nora Roberts book I have heard. I found this one a waste of time. It seemed to be aimed at a teenage audience. The constant worry about whether to have sex or not was boring. Was that intended to be "romantic?" All I could think was "get over it." I really couldn't care about any of the characters.
The actual story of the pagan stone was found in the last 30 minutes with brief "encounters with evil" tossed in here and there.
I have read previous reviews of this book and find myself in the minority. Many of the sub plots (the wedding dress) didn't fit into the story perhaps because I didn't hear the first 2 books. Maybe there will be a sequel but it will not be on my list.
The narration was OK. I hated the loud, whiny voice for some of the women.
