Valley of silence
Nora Roberts
Adult Romance ROBERTS

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Roberts's paranormal Circle Trilogy concludes with the "circle of six" warriors the sorcerer Hoyt, Hoyt's vampire brother Cian, the witch Glenna, the warrior Blair, the shape-shifter Larkin and Larkin's scholar-princess cousin Moira preparing for battle against the evil vampire, Lilith. Having traveled back through time to Moira and Larkin's ancient kingdom of Geall, Moira raises the sword from the stone to take her place as queen. With her five warrior companions by her side, Moira leads her people into battle against Lilith's army of vampires, who are intent on destroying Geall. Meanwhile, Moira and Cian give in to powerful feelings of love, stealing nights of passion that could spell ruin for both of them. As war befalls the kingdom, Roberts brings the same precise, resonant energy to battle scenes that make her sexual interludes shine, grounding magic, dragons and vampires in a believable world. The truest moments of this novel, however, belong to Roberts's fully formed characters, especially in the love sacrifices of Moira and Cian. Completing her series with the real-world complications of selfless, star-crossed love, Roberts has crafted a fantasy-romance trilogy with strong appeal for romance fans of all stripes. (Nov.)

From Library Journal:

Dick Hill rises to the challenge of transforming an emotionless vampire into a sympathetic character in his reading of the conclusion to Roberts's first paranormal series. Cian's claims of despising the human race are belied both by his actions and the pain that shows so audibly in this recording. Hill's Irish brogue reminds us that while Cian has lived in the United States for some time, he is Irish at heart, and he gets his Irish up for this battle. Until now, ancient Geallian princess Moira has struggled with her feelings for Cian. Since vampires killed her mother, how can she love one? But she finally sees beyond her past; she's a leader and a fighter, and she'll fight for Cian as hard as for herself. It is neither the softening of Hill's Irish lilt nor the raised pitch of his voice that makes Moira so memorable. It is her passion, which eventually pushes Cian from his stark existence into humanity. Hill successfully melds the practical with the fantastical and nicely brings the trilogy full circle. A definite winner for libraries.-Jodi L. Israel, MLS, Salt Lake City (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
