My Mum has been urging me to give NORA Roberts a try for years and I finally succumbed. Morrigan's Cross is the first of the Circle Trilogy. The evil vampire Lillith is leading her army to conqure the human world and enslave human kind and six heros must lead the resistance to stop her. Five extraordinary people and their vampire trainer come together and so the circle is born. This is fantasy at its finest. The style is highly readable and the characterisation is superb. The characters are wonderfully drawn and both likeable and deeply complex. This is as much a saga of love and friendship as it is good verses evil, with a good dose of magic and monsters thrown in. I just fell in love with this book and its sequels and I can't recommend them highly enough.

This is the first of a trilogy by Nora Roberts. The three books take the reader from modern day New York to Ireland and to a mythical island in the middle ages. The books ae basically the fight between good and evil with several unusual twists in the characters. Each book is complete on its own but to read the three is very satisfying. Nora Roberts draws the characters in the first books and fleshes them out through the series. They are well thought out and believable as are the evil ones. Nora Roberts never goes to far with the horror that the evil ones can do but can bring her readers imagination to work on what is not written. I would certainly recommend this book to all those who enjoy fantasy fiction and a good read.

I could not stop listening to these three books - this being book one of the trilogy. The beginning of this book was a little hard to get into because it's difficult to put everything into context. But as soon as the characters are established it becomes very enjoyable. By the time you get to the end of book one of this trilogy, you won't be able to wait to start on book two and three.

I have really enjoyed this story and most of the narration. I'll admit Dick Hill gets a bit carried away with Hoyt's voice being too sonorous a few times, but he separates the voices very well and only makes the women sound whiny when they actually are according to what's being said. I can't understand how anyone could think of it as boring. I have not read The 7th Sign Trilogy so cannot comment on that. I found this story to be riveting and am going to get the next one right now. Those sales for "first in a series" catch me every time.
If you like paranormal stories of witches, sorcerers, vampires, and shapeshifters, with some violence, romance and a bit of sex (they don't stop at the bedroom door but it doesn't dominate the story), I highly recommend this audiobook.
