Book Description

2 Oct 2014 The Cousins O'Dwyer Trilogy (Book 1)

Iona Sheehan has always felt a powerful connection to Ireland. So when her beloved grandmother confesses an extraordinary family secret, she can't resist visiting County Mayo to discover the truth for herself. Arriving at the atmospheric Castle Ashford, Iona is excited to meet her enigmatic cousins, Connor and Branna O'Dwyer. And when she lands a job at the local riding school she is soon drawn to its owner - the charismatic, fiercely independent Boyle McGrath. Perhaps she has found her true home at last...

But Iona's arrival is no accident. The three cousins have each inherited a dangerous gift from an ancestor known as the Dark Witch. And they are about to discover that some old legends can return to haunt the present.

The first in a magical new trilogy, Dark Witch is a captivating story of love, family and destiny.

Product Description

Book Description

Nora Roberts - the world's greatest storyteller.

From the Inside Flap

Three cousins inherit a gift that will transform their lives . . .

Iona Sheehan has just taken the biggest gamble of her life. Leaving her job, her home and her family in Baltimore, she has come to Ireland in search of adventure - and answers.

Iona has always felt a powerful connection to the home of her ancestors. So when her beloved grandmother confesses an extraordinary family secret, she can't resist visiting County Mayo to discover the truth for herself. Arriving at the beautiful and atmospheric Castle Ashford, Iona is excited to meet her cousins, Connor and Branna O'Dwyer, for the first time. And when she lands a job at the local riding school she finds herself drawn against her will to its owner - the hot-tempered but charismatic Boyle McGrath. Perhaps in County Mayo she has found her true home at last.

What Iona doesn't realise is that her cousins have been expecting her for a long time. Connor, Branna and Iona have all inherited a powerful but dangerous gift from an ancestor known as the Dark Witch. And they are about to discover that some old legends can return to haunt the present . . .

The first in a magical new trilogy, Dark Witch is a captivating story of love, family and destiny.

2.0 out of 5 stars Been here before 5 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The feeling of utter disappointment at this book makes me feel that Nora Roberts has let me down. I have read this story before, albeit with a few different twist but the basic premise is the same (Sign of the Seven)

The story dragged interminably and would have been much better with all three stories in one book the plot would have at least had some pace to it. This penchant Nora has for trilogies is all well and good when there is a fresh plot and interesting twists, e.g. The Boonsboro Trilogy, but at 6.99 a shot I at least expect something new for my money.

I have been a long-time fan of Nora's books and those under her pseudonym J D Robb and have over 100 of her books lining my bookshelves or on my Kindle so I feel that I can speak with some authority in saying this book is a definite miss.

1.0 out of 5 stars Deja vu and not in a good way!! 12 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback
Like my fellow book readers on here I'm a huge Nora Roberts fan, I have pretty much all of her books resting on my shelve and have re-read them all many many times. If your new to her then this book is ok, but to be honest it's not one her greatest, this is really just one big mash up of the 3 sister trilogy & the sign of 7 trilogy, Branna-Mia, Iona-Nell & Fin as Sam, even the pentagon mark that used in the 3 sisters is featured here in the same way!! I fear Nora may have run out of ideas or is being pushed to release too many books a year, either way I'd be surprised if I buy the next book which is a shame as she's a great author!!
P.S if you are new to her then please read the 3 Sisters Trilogy it's one of her best series :0) x

Could it be possible that nora roberts is running out of ideas!!?!! I have read all her books and this trilogy is very predictable because it is almost the same as the stone trilogy books. Very obvious and actually, dare I say, a bit slow ..... I think the last book will be Branna and fin and it should be the best.

If you like nora you'll like this but there's nothing new here.

1.0 out of 5 stars A big let down Nora! 4 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Before I start I must say I am one of the biggest Nora Roberts/JD Robb fans going..I have even pre-ordered her books from USA in order to get them more quickly. I have read (and still own) every book she has ever published.
To say I am disappointed in this book is putting it mildly! Its the only book I have ever read of hers, that I wanted to 'hurry up and end' She has used this formula so many times before ie Sign of the Seven...Three Sisters trilogies and I felt this one was a mash up of everything that has gone before (in fact I went back into the book to see if it was a re-write!)
I think because she is one of our most popular writers, she is under pressure to produce more books more frequently.
Sorry Nora, I would rather wait longer and relish a damn good book than ever be disappointed in anything you write.
I don't think I could recommend this book to anyone (whether they are new to Nora..or like me ..an avid reader of her books

2.0 out of 5 stars Same old, same old. 21 Nov 2013
By Beth
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I keep hoping Nora Roberts' books will improve again - but they don't. What a disappointment. I have been a lifetime fan and regularly re-read my favourites - island 3, jewels 3 and born in 3 in particular.
Really bored by the Boonsborough books and this book is an utter rehash.
Plus silly mistakes - potatoes for tea in medieval times! Just careless.
Time to retire?

4.0 out of 5 stars Similar to the Three Sisters trilogy 6 Nov 2013
By LEP VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I enjoy all Nora Roberts books, including those she writes as JD Robb. I enjoyed this first book in a new trilogy, however I thought that the story theme was very like her Three Sisters trilogy which I read a long time ago, more like that than the Pagan Stone trilogy as another reviewer states. This time it is set in Ireland instead of America, although there is an American cousin, Iona. This first book, Iona's story is not nearly as menacing as the first in the Three Sisters trilogy, which perhaps lets it down somewhat.

Iona is sunny and bright in personality and having discovered that she is an ancestor of the 13C Dark Witch, which she hears about from her Irish grandmother, and realising that she has magick gifts, she goes to Ireland to meet her two cousins who have already been practising magick for years. The Dark Witch had three children and now that the three cousins are together, the dark sorcerer who wanted Sorcha, the Dark Witch's power, rises again.

Like the Three Sisters trilogy there is a 4th with power. Finn, the friend of the others, and like the Three Sisters there is s problem stopping Finn and Breanna, one of the cousins, coming together even though they love each other. Here, the problem, which I don't intend to divulge, is quite a clever twist.

It's an enjoyable read, even though she is resurrecting old story lines. However, she has done that before with some of her other trilogies e.g. The Pagan Stone trilogy is very similar to The Key of Knowledge trilogy.

NR has also made an historical bloomer in Chapter 1. Potatoes were not introduced into Europe from the Americas until approximately 16C. So Sorcha and her children would not be eating them in Ireland in 13C.

Couldn't get into this at all. Loved her Broomsboro Trilogy and wrongly thought would be similar. May try again sometime but disappointed

3.0 out of 5 stars A good - almost great - book
I enjoyed 'Dark Witch', but it didn't quite live up to its full potential. The first chapter is brilliant, but from then on the story just seems to plod along.
