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.

    Story
    "Good Opening for a trilogy--"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Blood Brothers to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the narrator had a good pace and distinctive character voices


    If you’ve listened to books by Nora Roberts before, how does this one compare?

    This book and the trilogy has a new twist on good vs evil


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    Grandma Hawkins, the narrator made me believe she was as wise as she was old

    "Phil Gigante saved this rather lame story"
    Where does Blood Brothers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the lower half


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

    Maybe, I am disappointed that they changed narrators for each book in the series, why mess with perfection?

    The story itself is rather Disneyish as far as the very predictable characters.....


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    He always does such an amazing job of giving each character their own voice and personality. I actually chose this book BECAUSE he was the narrator.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Predictable family movie

    "Narration Does Make a Difference"

    I laughed when I read someone's rating that the narrator's women's voices were screetchy. This guy should not do women's voices. It took a lot, and I mean a lot, of dedication to finish listening to the book. The only good thing is that the narrator for the other two books are done by different narrators.

    "Great Book But"

    This book would have been excellent if the sex scenes weren’t so boring. The plot, narration, and layout (except the sex scenes of course) were every convincing; but exactly what I expected from Nora Roberts. Her intimate moments are almost always PG.

    "'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!

    "Rating"

    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.

    "New fan"

    Nora Roberts has a new fan in me. This book was excellent. I was sorry when the book ended. I immediately downloaded the next 2 books and can't wait for the story to continue.

    "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.
