Nora Roberts is a legend of trilogies, and BLOOD BROTHERS is the start of another winning romantic paranormal trilogy. Cal, Fox, and Gage were only ten when they unleashed the demonic power trapped beneath the Pagan Stone. Every seven years, for seven days, a horrible and deadly power is unleashed in Hawkins Hollow. People commit horrible acts, and then can't remember doing any of it.

For these three men, it's been twenty-one years since whatever entity resided in that glade was let loose. Now, it's up to them to stop it before it's too late. When Quinn comes to town, looking to research these strange events and turn them into a book, her presence seems to make the power of the three men even stronger -- but it also makes the "entity" stronger, as well. When Layla and Cybil are also drawn to Hawkins Hollow, the three men and three women band together to stop the horror that grips this town every seven years.

As I said, I really loved this book, and I can't wait for the next two books in the series. This is another winner!!! I would also like to recommend reading Tino Georgiou's masterpiece--The Fates--if you haven't yet...that is!

I can see why even Stephen King is in awe of Nora Roberts (he said so), and why he thinks she's 'cool'. Also, why she's named in Time magazine's top 100 people of 2007. When Ms. Roberts is on her A game, she is on, and the book is a return to form.

Three friends, brothers of the heart, decide to go camping at the Pagan Stone (which is expressly forbidden) to celebrate the night of them turning 10. Due to an innocent bonding ceremony, they unwittingly unleash a demon onto their town, and every seven years for seven days, evil possesses the town's residents, only to slumber for another seven years.

In the year that we meet these men, they are on the cusp of their 31st birthday, there is the notion of the quickening, the evil is coming thick and fast now, and Cal, Fox and Gage have to unite with their respective partners, and residual powers to turn the evil away. Cal is the first of the friends to go to bat, and the book is a doozy as a result.

It's similar to The Sister's Trilogy, where events of the past have warred with evil, but weren't strong enough to banish it, only to bound it. Unlike The Sister's Trilogy, the stakes in The Seven Trilogy are set that much higher, the evil is much more malevolent, and the atmosphere so very menacing. The characters seem to be that much sharper, and a bit more individual, with their little quirks that seem cute and real, like Cal and his boy scout compass.

The Blood Brothers is a good start to The Trilogy, very much in terms of atmosphere, with blood and death, and we meet all the main players in quick succession. It's book to be highly recommended, and a really quick read.

I can't wait for the third, when its Gage's time at bat. Fox (the star of the second), seems cool, but Gage has some issues with his dad, and I can't wait to see the outcome.

This book and the whole trilogy are among the better NR novels in my opinion.
The town is possessed every 7 years and a writer of ghost/spooky stories rolls in to town to do an expo. There is mild horror, romance and a nicely drawn small town community, flashbacks to the past and a nasty demon woven into the story. I found them very readable and had to sit up to finish each one!

My niggles are
1) the completely predictable 3 women + 3 men = 3 couples set up. In real life I think all 3 blokes would have tried to hit on the stacked blonde. (But who wants real life?)
2) The way she spells magic as magick. OK a small thing, but it bugs me. She still spells music, mystic and others without problems, so why do we need the cod-14th century spelling for magic, fairy, demon etc?

Apart from that, I recommend this book, and the whole trilogy. I though it was far better than the Morrigan and Keys trilogies.

This is a kid’s book for adults and I don’t mean that in a derogatory way – I thoroughly enjoyed it for just that reason. It has horror and adventure and some good, strong characters. It is Stephen King Lite, if you like. There is just enough horror and creeps, but not the full-blown stomach churning horrible detail.

The demon in this particular case is creepy; any demon appearing as a red-eyed child will give you the creeps, especially when it tries to bury your dog in snow. As for the scene in the gym: unseen monsters in the pitch dark get my vote for the frighteners every time.

Central to this first book of a trilogy are Cal, Gage and Fox, three boys who unwittingly release the demon from its three hundred year captivity. It turns out they are related to its gaoler, so it is their job to put it back where it came from – for good.

As the story progresses three women turn up who might just happen to be related to the demon itself. This is not as straightforward as you may think. Quinn, Layla and Cybil are a feisty bunch and not what you might expect of demon spawn.

This tale is especially Cal and Quinn’s so there are a few romantic shenanigans there, as you might expect.

Nora Roberts gives the story the usual daytime TV feel which works so well, enabling the reader to settle in comfortably to what they know will be a good story, well-told.

I’ve got the other two books lined up ready to read, not all at once (too much of a horror glut), but spaced out between other reads like good sequels should be.
