This is the first in Nora Roberts Trilogy of the 'Three Sisters Island' series, and it a truly mesmerising story from book 1 right through to book 3. The storyline takes you through the main characters history up to the present time, from the darkest of their days to the best of them. It has a deeply pagan theme which followers of this lifestyle will recognise many of the spells written into the books and this must reflect the authors following or research into the old ways.
I would tend to lean towards the research side as most spells within the book end with the all too familiar line ' so mote it be ', which many followers of the wiccan path will know is never used in true spell casting. It is amazing how many people have picked this up from programmes like ' charmed ' and believe it is the right way to end a spell, but that is poetic licence for you.
The books must be heard as a series otherwise you will miss out on the continuing theme which ends in a superb climax at the end of book 3.
Very highly rated series, and if you enjoy this then you would enjoy many of the other 'trilogy' books from the same author.

STORY - Dance Upon the Air reminds me a lot of the Julia Roberts movie Sleeping with the Enemy. Not the same, of course, but there are a lot of similarities. It is a small town contemporary romance that has an undertone of danger and a dabbling in witchcraft. The romance is engaging, and the impending danger will keep you on your toes. Nell and Zack are strong, smart, likeable characters, and I enjoyed hearing their relationship progress. As always, Nora Roberts' sex scenes are tastefully described but still very passionate. I enjoyed this book a lot, but I've gotten very stingey with my 4's and 5's so I've just rated it a 3.
NARRATOR - Good job but nothing special. Zack's voice was a bit nasally, but way better than a lot of men's voices done by women (and vice versa).
OVERALL - I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good "clean" romance. If you are looking for lots of hot sex, you should probably skip this one.

Unlike some of the other reviewers here, I was not impressed with the narrator. She reads well, but her character voices are honestly terrible. Of the three lead women in their 20s, one sounds like a little girl, another like an old lady, and the third has a nasally voice that borders on whiny. The love interest of the main character has a wooden tone with no inflection in it whatsoever, and the few other men in the book all have the exact same voice. Listen to the sample for a long time before you decide to buy this one. However, the book itself is a good romantic fantasy, and after awhile, the story was strong enough to overshadow the weak narration.
