"[A] trilogy about the land we're drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love. With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors' blood and magic have flowed through generations-- and where her destiny awaits. Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan's directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O'Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives. When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he's three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package. Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself-- and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona's family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope-- and love-- alive" -- from publisher's web page.

I really like the story and the narrator. I'm looking forward to the next two books.

I enjoyed listening to this cd while driving to and from work. I am looking for the second book of this trilogy.

I love this book. It's the third Nora Roberts book I have listened to. I think the narrator is one of the best I have heard. Her voice is beautiful and I am easily pulled into the story and the scenes. I am sad to learn that she is not the narrator for the next two books!

I ENJOYED THIS BOOK AND I DID NOT THINK IT WAS READ BADLY BY THE NARRATOR. I CAN'T WAIT TO GET TO THE NEXT ONE.

Not sure if I will finish this book - not one of Nora Roberts better novels. Although I probably could finish listening, I was totally turned off by the hysterical shouting of the narrator. Absolutely horrendous interpretation by the performer!

I agree with the other 2 readers, not my favorite by Nora. The shouting by the narrator got old fast. Not really sure if I will finish the trilogy.

The story itself was pretty good, though I much prefer her straight Romance over the supernatural stuff she writes. The books written as JD Robb are her best work.
The narrator of the audiobook version was HORRIBLE. Well, that's a bit unfair as the narrator did good accents and had a distinct, recognizable voice for each main character. But the narration of the non-dialogue was dreadful. Lots of shouting and high drama where it wasn't appropriate. If I had access to the print book and the time to read it, I'd have stopped after the first disc. Really bad. I sincerely hope the same reader, Katherine Kellgren, doesn't read the remainder of the Trilogy or I will be giving it a pass.

not one of her better novels and the audio book was tedious

shouted spells with terrible rhymes were hokey- like vaudeville on audio
