After reading Morrigan's Cross, I couldn't wait for the next book in this captivating paranormal trilogy from the ever-versatile, prolific, and much-loved queen of romance. The Circle Trilogy by Nora Roberts continues with Dance of the Gods, the story of Larkin, a shape-shifter from the past and thoroughly modern Blair.
The Circle of Six continues to prepare for their battle against the vampire queen Lilith and her ever-growing army. The goddess Morrigan has gathered her warriors from the past and the present to include the wizard Hoyt and his vampire brother Cian, the witch Glenna, ancient Geallian princess Moira and her shape-shifting cousin Larkin, and demon hunter Blair. They all bring their own strengths and weaknesses to the circle.
Now this unlikely group of companions must find some way of working together as a team if they are to have any hope of stopping those who would destroy mankind. Blair Murphy may have been the last to sign on to the Circle of Six but she knows all about destroying vampires. She comes from a long line of vampire hunters, but she is now faced with the most difficult challenge of her life -- learning to trust someone else.
Larkin comes from a simpler place and time, one where the women stayed home and did what the men said -- they certainly didn’t risk their lives like Blair did. The relationship between the two send sparks flying, especially when their anger turns, finally, to lust.
Now all they have to do to fulfill their destiny is to enter the stone circle that will take them back in time to Geall for the last battle with Lilith.
Dance of the Gods is a testament to Ms. Roberts’s skill and talent, as this richly detailed fantasy seems to light up the pages with wit, humor and sizzling romance. This Celtic-flavored story features superbly crafted characters and an enchanting blend of myth and magic. Readers who enjoy the paranormal genre are assured a good time, and anyone who hasn’t given this genre a try, you are in for a captivating read.
