Having travelled through the Dance of the Gods to the land of Geall, the six members of the circle finds themselves convincing then training the people of Geall to defeat Lilith's vampire army. The Valley of Silence is a forbidding place for the battle of all battles, but the circle continues to prepare through a series of magical tests that improve their strengths both individually and as a team. Moira finds herself playing the roles of warrior and royal, as she follows the tradition of her people and prepares to take the crown before leading them into battle. She must also deal with her feelings for Cian, who she finds her thoughts turning to more often than not. And how will the people of Geall fare against an army of blood-thirsty vampires who have had centuries to prepare? Valley of Silence is part of The Circle Trilogy, Nora Roberts' magical new series of paranormal romances. Six strangers - a sorcerer, a witch, a shape-shifter, scholar, warrior and vampire - find danger, friendship and the chance of love, as they unite in a battle against an ancient evil
About the Author

Dick Hill rises to the challenge of transforming an emotionless vampire into a sympathetic character in his reading of the conclusion to Roberts's first paranormal series. Cian's claims of despising the human race are belied both by his actions and the pain that shows so audibly in this recording. Hill's Irish brogue reminds us that while Cian has lived in the United States for some time, he is Irish at heart, and he gets his Irish up for this battle. Until now, ancient Geallian princess Moira has struggled with her feelings for Cian. Since vampires killed her mother, how can she love one? But she finally sees beyond her past; she's a leader and a fighter, and she'll fight for Cian as hard as for herself. It is neither the softening of Hill's Irish lilt nor the raised pitch of his voice that makes Moira so memorable. It is her passion, which eventually pushes Cian from his stark existence into humanity. Hill successfully melds the practical with the fantastical and nicely brings the trilogy full circle. A definite winner for libraries.-Jodi L. Israel, MLS, Salt Lake City Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
"'Nora Roberts is a superstar' New York Times"
Roberts's paranormal Circle Trilogy concludes with the "circle of six" warriors the sorcerer Hoyt, Hoyt's vampire brother Cian, the witch Glenna, the warrior Blair, the shape-shifter Larkin and Larkin's scholar-princess cousin Moira preparing for battle against the evil vampire, Lilith. Having traveled back through time to Moira and Larkin's ancient kingdom of Geall, Moira raises the sword from the stone to take her place as queen. With her five warrior companions by her side, Moira leads her people into battle against Lilith's army of vampires, who are intent on destroying Geall. Meanwhile, Moira and Cian give in to powerful feelings of love, stealing nights of passion that could spell ruin for both of them. As war befalls the kingdom, Roberts brings the same precise, resonant energy to battle scenes that make her sexual interludes shine, grounding magic, dragons and vampires in a believable world. The truest moments of this novel, however, belong to Roberts's fully formed characters, especially in the love sacrifices of Moira and Cian. Completing her series with the real-world complications of selfless, star-crossed love, Roberts has crafted a fantasy-romance trilogy with strong appeal for romance fans of all stripes. (Nov.)
