Publisher's Summary

Having traveled through the Dance of the Gods to the land of Geall, the circle find themselves convincing, then training, the people of Geall to defeat Lilith's vampire army.

The Valley of Silence is a forbidding place for the battle of all battles, but the circle continues to prepare, through magic and a few early stakeouts that test their strength individually and as a team.

Moira finds herself playing the roles of warrior and royal as she follows the tradition of her people and prepares to take the crown before leading them into battle. And if that isn't enough, she finds her thoughts turning to Cian more often than not.

So what's a chaste and intelligent young woman to do when given less than a month with the man she loves, who's not a man, but a vampire? And how will the people of Geall fare against an army of blood-thirsty vampires who have had centuries to prepare?

Complete the circle: listen to all three books in Nora Roberts' Circle Trilogy, including Book 1, Morrigan's Cross, and Book 2, Dance of the Gods.

What the Critics Say

"Completing her series with the real-world complications of selfless, star-crossed love, Roberts has crafted a fantasy-romance trilogy with strong appeal for romance fans of all stripes." (Publishers Weekly)
"Dick Hill's narration gives further evidence why he is an AudioFile Golden Voice and Audie winner. Even if you're not a fan of this genre, Hill does such a convincing job as each character that one cannot help but be entertained by this action-packed tale of good versus evil." (AudioFile)

    "Thoroughly enjoyed it!"

    Here is my review of "Morrigan's Cross", the first book of the trilogy. My review stands for all 3 of the books. I really liked them all.

    "I'm glad I didn't read the reviews before I bought this book, as I might have missed out on a very good read. I finished "Morrigan's Cross" (the first book in the Circle trilogy) and couldn't wait to start the second book, to which I am currently listening. I love the paranormal/mythological air of the story, and the coming together of the characters from different times. Yes, as someone pointed out, there is a slight resemblance to the story line in the Sign of 7 trilogy, but only in that a group of characters come together to fight evil; otherwise the story lines are different.
    As far as the narrator, Dick Hill, I think he did a fine job and I enjoyed his narration. He does a great Irish brogue (I love Hoyt's voice), and I am able to distinguish the characters' voices with no problem. The comment was made by another reviewer that he made the female voices sound whiny. I think he did a very acceptable job for a man with a deep voice."

    "Series was too long, but liked the love story"

    Bought all three of the books in this series at once, and glad I did, cause it sure left you hanging from book to book. By the time I got to this one, I was just wanting an end to it. The quest was so long and drawn out, and the actual battle, of good against evil, was very short lived. I did like the love story in this book, which is what kept me interested. I was wondering just what Ms Roberts would do with Cian, in the end, but that too, I managed to figure out. You have to keep reading though, just to make sure. All in all, it's a good tale, but I did get tired of the series, by the time it was done. The love story, is intense and keeps you listening.

    "My favorite trilogy made even better"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. As fantastic as Nora Roberts' writing is in this book, Dick Hill made it even better. I've probably read this trilogy 5 or 6 times but listening to it was like experiencing it for the forst time.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This series has it all - romance, action, and good vs evil. Of course since this is the final book the climax will make you cheer and cry.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His variety of voices are perfect including the men and women and spanning countries and centuries.


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

    I wouldn't dream of ruining this series for anyone, but there were several moments that moved me including the last 3 chapters of this book.

    "What a wonderful trilogy"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The store is wonderful and has just the right mix of magic and love.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Blair I like her sass and the fact she could back it up


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    I've had several other audio books now and Dick Hill did a good job. I wasn't sure how he was going to pull off the womans voices but every character he gave a slightly different voice.


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

    No Listen before bed and In the car

    "Good Ending"
    What made the experience of listening to Valley of Silence the most enjoyable?

    I like listening to audiobooks as opposed to reading them for myself because the narrators have the ability to bring so much more to the story.


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

    I've only listened to the other's he's done in this series. I have to say he made the females awfully whiny at times. When I'd have imagined them saying things a little different, he made them sound weak. It also annoyed me when he made tsking sounds. I don't know if they were in the book or not but it drove me nuts. Other than that I liked it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I actually teared up whenever Tinnon (I'm not sure if that's how his name is spelled or not to be honest with you) died and they had his funeral.


    Any additional comments?

    I honestly didn't think it'd like this series but I was wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Nora Roberts goes into some detail, some of which is graphic or disgusting, and some of it I would have preferred not to hear but I understand it makes for a better story. I must say, however, that my least favorite way to end a book (along with the death of a main character) is by having the characters old. While the gesture and thought is sweet, it depresses the hell out of me. I'd prefer to imagine them as they were when they fought the battle, not as elderly.

    "So sad that the trilogy ended!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I gave this an overall 4 in stead of 5 stars. If they allowed 4.5 stars, I would have given it that. Near the end some of the book became just a little predictable, but that really was ok and I still looked forward to hearing everything until the end. The only other complaint I have it that the trilogy came to an end. I'm hoping Ms Roberts may find it in her heart to fill in some of their lives after the big fight and before the ending where they are all much older. Knowing some of her past stories, I believe this could be possible. Thanks again for another fabulous story!!

    "I'm an addict"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Valley of Silence to be better than the print version?

    Never read the print version, but this one really takes you away and the characters and scenery are well-developed. Of the series, I liked the first one the best and was sad when it was over, but this was a close second. Keenen was my favorite character, but I was disappointed to find his story lacking in basic story line--the battle was weak, but the love story was good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Valley of Silence?

    Would be a spoiler - when one of the characters is killed.


    What three words best describe Dick Hill’s voice?

    Good male voice. Odd female voice.

    "Dick Hill is a truly engaging performer!"
    Where does Valley of Silence rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    So far the best Narration performance I've found in the NR books- which topically are purely for entertainment. Mr. Hill however takes what would otherwise be fun read to a fantastically enjoyable listen! Enjoyed is so much, I listened to the series twice!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are all interesting


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

    Too hard to pick- he did a GREAT job with all of them!


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I listen during my weekly commute (by air)

    "Valley of Silence"

    I have read these books several times so was really happy to get the audio book. This is my favourite due to the character hook up. The only thing I didn't like was one of the characters accents. A little grating and cheap sounding. It always sounds different in your head when you read it so shouldn't complain. I enjoyed the entire trilogy and wouldn't mind in they turned it into a trilogy movie. I would certainly watch it.

    "A truly epic ending"

    The day of reckoning is almost here. As Moira prepares to lead the troops to the battle ground in the valley of silence and assumes her mother's throne, she becomes ever more powerfully drawn to Cian, the circle's troubled vampire adviser. Cian knows that whether they win or lose this war, a life with Moira is impossible, bbut his feelings won't be denied. This is a powerful tale of love and sacrifice and the stunning conclusion to this brilliant trilogy.
