Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: County Mao, Ireland. Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan's directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. There she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O'Dwyer, and they invite her into their lives. When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Iona realizes that here she can live her life as she wants, even if that means falling for Boyle. But an ancient evil has wound its way around Iona's family tree and must be defeated.

I loved this book. It was pure escapism for me. Iona was so positive and joyful and found acceptance so easily, I wish life could always be like that. The book was entertaining. Definitely want to read book 2.

This book bodes well for the series. A passionate, quirky and realistic heroine is found with Iona, and I love that I can relate to her. She seems like a great person to take on Cabhan, and I look forward to seeing where this trilogy goes.

This is the first book in a trilogy that combines two of Nora Roberts' favorite themes ... witches and Ireland. It focuses on Iona, an American who has come to Ireland to meet her distant cousins after a lifetime of haunting dreams, to find that she is a witch whose family has been fighting an ancient evil for 800 years. She must join together with her cousins Branna and Connor (who teach her how to use her magic) to finally defeat an evil sorcerer. What makes this trilogy different from Nora's other magic trilogies is that it felt darker to me than her others, I think because of a combination of the setting and the history she gives to her storyline.

This book was highly addicting. She's not your typical Nora Roberts lead female who is too strong for love. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

I had to give up because the protagonist made me wince. Utterly graceless.

agree with Liselara, below in OPL comments; an OK book on it's own, but written by Nora Roberts, it is just a tweaked trilogy family story repeated over and over in her books.

Read to synopsis on the front cover and took it out. Didn't expect it to be so 'witchy' but went with it and had a blast, so to speak, 'as mote it be', if you get my drift. Read the second and will await the third. It was fun. Am a fan of Ms. Roberts' trilogies, anyway. A good summer read.

good read couldn't put it down

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "Amazing read. One of the best books from Nora Roberts. As the title says, it's about witches but more than that it's about family, friends, belonging, and love."
