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.

'Simply Brilliant!'

Nora is such an outstanding and prolific author, that the quality and diversity of her work, never ceases to amaze.
This first book in the trilogy is deliciously suspenseful and quickly entices the reader to delve further and learn more about the blood brothers and the fate that awaits them and the women who love them, in Hawkins Hollow. A mix of legend, folk lore and an ancient evil combine with enough drama, passion and mystery to see you to the satisfying conclusion of the third book. Riveting!
LOVE Phil Gigante's voice! That man could read the phone directory as far as I'm concerned and I'd be enthralled! Brilliant execution, dramatic effects and passion!

Though I love all of Nora Roberts books I don't like the fact that they used 3 different people to read her books.

Poor Naration

This narator is really bad. He makes the women and the men sound stupid and brainless. I really regret buying this audio book because I am a faithful Nora Roberts fan.

Bad narration

made this painful to listen to at points, especially the uneven, ostensibly New York accent of one of the main female characters. Light entertainment otherwise, and would have gone down a lot easier with much less narrative dramatization. Audio publishers, please think twice about having male narrators enact the voices of women characters -- this one sounds like he's doing mock drag.

Brilliant trilogy

How can you comment on only one book when the trilogy is so absolutely amazing - you just HAVE to read all of them to be able to put them into a "story".

I downloaded Blood Brothers and half way through downloaded the other 2 - I got all 3 finished in 3 days! FANTASTIC!!

NO extra pieces, no fillers just non stop thrills and lives falling into place.

I loved these books and would recommend them to EVERYONE.

This is true Nora style!!

Thank you.

Blood Brothers

Fantastic Trilogy. I can't get enough of these three books, Blood Brothers, The Hollow, and The Pagan Stone. You'll want to hear them again and again!

The worst book ever

Normally I read reviews and not write them. I feel obligated to write on this book mainly to warn future readers not to waste their money. Absolutely the worst book I have listened to in the four years I've been a member.

Blood Brothers (Unabridged)

I highly recommend this book it was the best that I have read in a long time.I loved the main character and was hooked from the first page.This book made me laugh,cry and scared me out of my wits.
Was a bit disappointed with the end until I found out it had 2 more books to it.Can't wait to read the other books.Loved it!

Blood Brothers

The book was enjoyable, until toward the end, it went along, easy to keep up, interesting until about 5 minutes before the end, it was like she just decided there was too much left to say, she had too little time to say it and tada it was over. Of course I didn't know at the time it was a series, I am downloading the next book Pagan stone, and hopefully I will feel a little better about the beginning . . . and the ending.
This s the First of this authors books I have read, and really did enjoy it.
