Summary:

Standing on the cliffs of 12th century Ireland following the disappearance of his twin, Hoyt Mac Cionaoith is visited by the goddess Morrigan and is charged with the ultimate of tasks: saving his and all future worlds. His enemy, the beautiful but deadly vampire queen Lilith, has had over two thousand years experience in cruelly killing and changing humans into one of her own - including Hoyt's brother, Cian. Now, Hoyt, a sorcerer, must travel across the world and through time to find and train the five others Morrigan has prophesized will join him as a circle and do battle against Lilith's army of vampires on Samhain in the land of Geall. But just who is the witch, the shape-changer, the scholar, the warrior and the vampire? How will this unlikely band of six prepare and become one with less than three months until the possible end of the world? Following the arrival of Glenna Ward - a modern day witch with a knack for making her own kind of magic, the kind that makes his heart melt - Hoyt must find the strength to save the world, and a love that knows no bounds. First in a trilogy from the #1 New York Times bestselling author

    Loved this series but the reader makes the female characters sound like a bad parody of Monty Python characters

    I hated this book, this is the first book I've had to return after the first CD... I hated the accent and I can't believe it's a trilogy... I would not recommend it. Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors and I have read and listened to EVERY one of her books and this one was BAD, BAD, BAD.

    Book is pretty good. I thought it was too long, it could have been condensed into a much shorter book. There is a lot going on, and frankly, some of it is just ridiculous! I know it's fantasy, but, come on!!! But, over all, I enjoyed the book and am now listening to the second in the series.

    I typiclly don't enjoy vampire content novels...HOWEVER, as in most Nora Roberts novels, she takes this series to a different level...loved the series.

    I really loved this book and I would never have put myself into a vampire- lovers club. It is more about the relationships between people and the importance of the strength of those relationships when facing important battles and how the principles of relationships are the same no matter the country, era or species. So it may not be for real vampire lovers but the sex was good! A definite read. I will look forward to the rest of the series and cannot wait!

    Listened for 2 hours, just couldn't get into book. I like other Nora Roberts books. This one is very different from her usual writing.

    Way too dark for my liking. More recent NR and JD Robb books seem to be heading that direction. I love the author's talent, just not the darker subject matter...If you're into vampires.....

    I loved the entire series, wishing I had read this one first (but read it last). I love this story. It kept my interests entirely. Give me more!

    This is a review of all 3 in the circle trilogy: Morrigan's Cross, Dance of the Gods, Valley of Silence. No spoilers here. As the review title indicates, I found the very first book in the series quite anticlimactic. Specifically, the final "conflict" in the book didn't rate to me as particularly epic or action -packed. However, I liked the premise and I'm a sucker for a good vampire story, so I decided to take the series in aggregate, and rate it as one piece. This makes it about 30 cds long, about the size of a Robert Jordan, or George R.R. Martin endeavor. This series is a Harlequin Romance with a vampire backdrop. It's much more about the relationships between the main characters than it is about establishing vampire lore, horror, suspense, or action. I can't recall a meaningful plot twist in the whole series, and I found everything that happened completely, totally predictable.

    There are too many genres packed in this one book, as a result, they all fail. Don't bother with this. There are too many other fantasy books out there that are better written.
