Morrigan's Cross I’ll say one thing for Nora Roberts. She knows how to tell a tale. I’ve just finished reading Morrigan’s Cross, the first of The Circle Trilogy, and all I can say is wow. It is a powerful beginning and I can’t wait to see the outcome. I won’t reveal the plot here, as I think it’s poor sport when a review does too much of that and, frankly, this is a book best experienced for yourself. The characters are vibrant and the story wonderfully crafted with plenty of twists and turns, suspense, and a “magical” love story at the center of it all. There’s a true sense of urgency to the entire text, a sense that something is really at stake for the people in this story. I devoured the words on the pages, wanting zealously to see what happened next. This is the first I’ve read of Ms. Roberts’ works and I’m wholly impressed across the board with her attention to detail and ability to spin an enrapturing yarn. I thoroughly enjoyed Morrigan’s Cross and am poised to begin the second part of the trilogy, Dance of the Gods, which was just recently released. Happy reading!

Lover Awakened Someone introduced me to the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward and I will be eternally greatful. The first two installments, Dark Lover and Lover Eternal, were fantastic books, and Lover Awakened, the third in the series, is just as good if not better than its predecessors Ward has created a universe of compelling characters that exist in a unique and vivid mythology, and her storylines just plain knock your socks off. They are are utterly absorbing with plenty of romance and super-hot sex, as well as danger and adventure. Those familiar with the series know that each of the first books centered on a member of the Brotherhood finding their mate and Lover Awakened is no different. This time, however, she fleshes out the Brotherhood’s most torutured (literally and figuratively) member, Zsadist. He is pretty much “damaged goods” after years of abuse and slavery, but one woman, the vampire noblewoman Bella, sees something in him that no one else does, not even himself, and she rises to the occasion, her actions galvanized after her own injury at the hands of a madman. Ward captures a spectacular depth of emotion with these characters and the result is stunning. Be warned, though, there are a few suprises along the way.
