Publisher's Summary

Every seven years, on the seventh day of the seventh month, strange things happen. It began when three young boys - Caleb, Fox, and Gage - went on a camping trip to the Pagan Stone. And 21 years later, it will end in a showdown between evil and the boys who have become men - and the women who love them.

This modern-day legend draws reporter and author Quinn Black to Hawkins Hollow with the hope of making the eerie happening the subject of her new book. It is only February, but Caleb Hawkins, descendent of the town founders, has already seen and felt the stirrings of evil. Though he can never forget the beginning of the terror in the woods 21 years ago, the signs have never been this strong before.

Cal will need the help of his best friends, Fox and Gage, but surprisingly, he must rely on Quinn as well. She, too, can see the evil that the locals cannot, somehow connecting her to the town - and to Cal. As winter turns to spring, Cal and Quinn will shed their inhibitions, surrendering to a growing desire. They will form the cornerstone of a group of men and women bound by fate, passion, and the fight against what is to come from out of the darkness.

    "Easy on narrator; too much fantasy for me, tho"

    I've read lots of negative reviews of the narrator and just wanted to go a little easy on him. It is quite difficult for male narrators with deep voices to do female voices; and he does end up sounding female, just not in an attractive way. He does the male voices wonderfully, though, and the dramatic effects for the scary parts made me jump out of my skin each time!!!

    Having said that, I'm not crazy about the amount of fantasy in the story itself... I knew it was part 1 of a series (it says so in the title!) and now part of me is curious about what happens next but part of me really doesn't want to go through this experience again (maybe a non-audio book borrowed from the library rather than bought)

    The romance part was OK though and the characters were interesting

    "Oh, Dear! Such A Narrator ..."

    The story, in and of itself, was a good one. If you aren't into listening to sex scenes, however, you might want to get ready to toggle your MP3 player forward at times.

    I suppose that my biggest problem with this book, and the reason I gave it 4 stars, is the narrator. He has a fine resonant voice, however when he attempted to voice the ladies, he sounded like Nathan Lane in "The Birdcage". Or, for those of you of the younger persuasion, he sounded very much like Chris Crocker of YouTube fame during his rant to "leave Britney alone!".

    My husband and I did laugh at the voices, though. One character in particular sounded like Liberace. LOL!

    If you're concerned, be sure to listen to the snippet provided.

    "Not Nora Roberts best"

    Story was good, did not like the narrated, I am debating whether to buy the other two stories in the series. For the most part I enjoy Nora Roberts books and have purchases SEVERAL and will continue to read her books . By the way who chooses the narrators??

    "Ok, but"

    Not one of my fave Nora stories or series, but I do like the main current day characters. Love Phil Gigante's voice, so I could listen to him every day, sigh....

    Story
    "Bloodstone. Bloodlines. Blood."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Modern-day supernatural thriller. The night of their 10th birthday, three boys--Cal, Fox, and Gage--swear an oath and mix their blood out in the woods at the mystical Pagan Stone. Unknowingly, they also unleash an ancient demon, who proceeds to terrorize their town, Hawkins Hollow, for 7 nights every 7 years. 21 years later, with yet another Seven approaching, a reported named Quinn Black arrives in the Hollow to interview Cal Hawkins about the town's strange happenings. Soon, Layla Darnell and Cybil Kinski also arrive. Three men. Three women. Powerful connections that may be necessary, especially since the demon is stirring much sooner than ever before.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The connections between the trio of boys/men featured in this trilogy is great. I like how they vowed to do what was right, even though it wasn't easy.


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    Good reader. I like how the characters are voiced.


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

    I do like how the guys--after all those years of keeping their secret held close--do trust the women they've just met with that secret and accept that outside help is what's now required.


    Any additional comments?

    A negative to this trilogy is that each book in it is narrated by a different reader (male, female, male, respectively). Little to no effort was made to keep the "sound" of each character's speech at all consistent from one reader to the next.

    "Nora Roberts does it again"

    This story follows Nora Roberts tried and true formula of three men and women meeting up to defeat big baddie, ages old curse, and fall in love. Well this book only two technically fall in love. Great story as usual. The narrator is sometimes annoying, especially when doing the girl's voices.
