Blood Magick

Book 3 of the Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy

by Nora Roberts

10 . 28 . 14

From Berkley Publishing:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes a trilogy about the land we’re drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love…

Book Three of The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy
Blood Magick

County Mayo is rich in the traditions of Ireland, legends that Branna O’Dwyer fully embraces in her life and in her work as the proprietor of The Dark Witch shop, which carries soaps, lotions, and candles for tourists, made with Branna’s special touch.

Branna’s strength and selflessness hold together a close circle of friends and family—along with their horses and hawks and her beloved hound. But there’s a single missing link in the chain of her life: love…

She had it once—for a moment—with Finbar Burke, but a shared future is forbidden by history and blood. Which is why Fin has spent his life traveling the world to fill the abyss left in him by Branna, focusing on work rather than passion.

Branna and Fin’s relationship offers them both comfort and torment. And though they succumb to the heat between them, there can be no promises for tomorrow. A storm of shadows threatens everything that their circle holds dear. It will be Fin’s power, loyalty, and heart that will make all the difference in an age-old battle between the bonds that hold their friends together and the evil that has haunted their families for centuries.

Don’t miss the first two books in the Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy
Dark Witch
and
Shadow Spell

 

Why I am waiting…

I have been waiting on this installment of the Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy since reading the first book!  I cannot wait to read more about Branna and Fin.  I have never read Nora Roberts’ books before, but I enjoyed Dark Witch  more than I thought I would…Ireland, magic, romance, and ancienct battles…what is not to love!

I have always loved books about magic and Ireland — I think that the first one I read was Daughter of the Forest by Julliet Marillier.  The Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy reminds me, in part of Daughter of the Forest and other books by Julliet Marillier.

I would definitely recommend BOTH of these series.

 

What are you waiting on….?

    I am also waiting for this one even though it wasn’t my focus this week. The first one was the best one so far but I enjoyed both.

    I haven’t started this trilogy, but it sounds really good! I’m a HUGE Nora Roberts fan! If you haven’t read Honest Illusions, then I recommend it. It’s one of my absolute faves! Here’s mine – http://alisbooks.wordpress.com/2014/04/30/waiting-on-wednesday-8/
