Where are you Nora?5 star

I’m used tio reading thrillers from NR and loving them. This wasn’t one of them. It felt rushed, like she just wanted to finish it. Ugh. Disappointed.55


Fantastic5 star

This final book of the series is incredible. I’ve read other reviews of people who didn’t like it and I’m baffled. It brought the series to completion in a very satisfactory way. I loved all three books55


A Painful Read1 star

If you’re reading this, you’ve likely read the first two books. I wish I could recommend this, but it was a painful read. I pushed through and I’m done, feeling disappointment and sense of relief that I am now free to read better things.15

Whole series is perfection5 star

This ending to the series was so good I couldn’t put it down. After the second book I went to as many stores as I could to find this book and ended up finding it cheaper on the book store on my phone. Trust me. Read it. You won’t regret it.55

Disappointed3 star

The first and second books were amazing and my absolutely all time favorites. The ideas used is so unique and I absolutely loved this original story. The second book created a character I loved with so much depth and personality, and the second book really took the time and paced itself to really give a good effect. I loved it so much that I preordered the third book so I that I would have it right away when released. When I finally read it, I was so disappointed. The very first chapter is so rushed I couldn’t appreciate it. The whole story is so rushed in itself it feels shallow and not really in depth. The vibe it gives is like an amateur story and nothing like the the first 2 books. The ending was anticlimactic and the final showdown was confusing and dull. The main character seems too different and the writing is a little too dramatic in parts and not really detailed enough in others. Though still a great story overall, Nothing can really describe how disappointed I was with this ending of my favorite series and I feel like Nora kinda dropped the ball on this one.35


The Rise Of Magic1 star

I love Nora Roberts books, she is one of my favorite. But I didn’t like this book at all, thought it was uninspiring and boring. The characters in the first book were great and the story entertaining. The second was good and I was looking forward to the last book but was so disappointed in the third book and will never reread it. It is probably my least favorite series because of this book.15


“ pow to the wow” by Queen Fred5 star

What an amazing story!!! It has everything you can think of in a masterpiece.It pulled at me from the very fist book. Is not a typical romance, is so much more than that. The power of love, compassion, strength, loyalty, friendship, family, good vrs bad, and my favourite, HOPE is all intertwined in our past, present and future of our current society and lives. It truly makes you stop while you’re reading and think “ wow, this is now in our society” The writing is exceptional and profound. This books had it all for me as a reader. I read all the trilogy in a week. My praise to Mrs. Roberts. What an amazing story!!!55
