Book reviews à la bookworm...The good, the bad, and everything in between.
Nora Roberts can write thrillers, romantic suspense, and even paranormal. I love these witches she’d created. The series reminds me a little of the Sign of Seven trilogy, only in this series (the first chronologically) it isn’t about the guys having the power, but the chicks. And these chicks kick some serious paranormal butt.
Sure, one is in training, one is in denial, and one is in a league of her own, but together they can do anything. And the bond growing between them is palpable.
But this wouldn’t be a NR without the requisite too-good-to-be-true, to-die-for hero that prevents the story (and series) from descending into the chick-lit territory. A strong, stubborn, capable, honorable hero that sweeps the heroine, despite her many reservations, off her feet (and the reader is right there beside her).
I loved this story from beginning to end, the heroine’s plight, the budding romance, the approaching, oppressing darkness, the final fight for freedom...And I can’t wait to start on the second story in this trilogy. Of course, I also can’t wait for the grand finale—with all the hints that were dropped in the first book, I simply can’t wait to see how Mia resolves it all with Sam, the one-who-got-away.
A highly recommended series from this rather devoted reader.
