Description

The final Guardians Trilogy novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Bay of Sighs and Stars of Fortune.

As the hunt for the Star of Ice leads the six guardians to Ireland, Doyle, the immortal, must face his tragic past. Three centuries ago, he closed off his heart, yet his warrior spirit is still drawn to the wild. And there's no one more familiar with the wild than Riley - and the wolf within her....

An archaeologist, Riley is no stranger to the coast of Clare, but now she finds herself on unsure footing, targeted by the dark goddess who wants more than the stars, more than the blood of the guardians. While searching through Irish history for clues that will lead them to the final star and the mysterious Island of Glass, Riley must fight her practical nature and admit her sudden attraction to Doyle is more than just a fling. For it is his strength that will sustain her and give her the power to run towards love - and save them all....

It's okay.

Predictable story line (it's Nora Roberts afterall). I listened to the trilogy. All three were good audible books as background for completing boring tasks/chores. If you like mystical romance you will enjoy this trilogy.

"However weary he might be of life..."

"...After three centuries of it, he was more weary of witnessing death."

Island of Glass by Nora Roberts is an excellent confusion to a fantastical, romantic trilogy. This time we follow the narration of Riley and Doyle as they navigate their way through the final part of the mystery and their own feelings. The ending definitely does not disappoint and fans of the series will enjoy what Roberts has to offer and what narrator Saskia Maarleveld brings to life.

Not a fan.

Not what I was expecting but once I had started the trilogy I felt I needed to see it through...wish I hadn't bothered. If it were a movie it would be classified as a soft porn Avengers style fantasy romp rated 18A for the sex and PG13 for intellect.

NR Trilogy - great story

I enjoy NR's work and am a big fan. This 3rd book had a few unexpected elements (no spoilers from me) and some expected elements. When you have a Seer as one of the main characters, you get a glimpse of what is coming.
While I enjoyed most of the performance, it was difficult to hear the difference between Bran & Doyle much of the time. And there were a few times the lead ladies sounded alike. That was the most disappointing thing about this story for me. Even with that, I am glad they didn't change performers. That is a jolt for me.
I was taken away on a journey with this trilogy which is exactly what I want and expect from NR!

Decent story, but where's the character growth?

This is a typical Nora Roberts trilogy, and maybe that's the problem. I expect more from a trilogy then I got from this. For a story that covers three books, there was little to no character growth. In particular, Sasha made me want to virtually smack some backbone into her. I can understand hesitancy and uncertainty at the beginning, but by book three, she shouldn't turn into a quivering heap of irritation at every challenge.

But that was true of all the characters. Other than the hook-ups, there is little difference in most of them from the first book to the last (with the exception of the mermaid). A good story isn't enough any more. You need good characters to go with them, and Roberts might have pulled this batch out one too many times.

Loved !

I got so involved in the characters. I didn't want it to end. The fight of good verses evil is ever present in our world.

Ending seemed rushed

There was not as much a distinction between the voices of the characters as I'm previous books. This meant I was often confused on who was speaking. Also the end of the storey seemed rushed. once they got to their destination it seemed there were lots of details skimmed over to finish the story. it could hasn't been a four book series with the quest to end the witch at the end. #romance #thriller #mystery #suspense #tagsgiving #sweepstakes #series #engaging

Always a joy to read or hear a Nora Roberts story. This one is full of mystery, magic, love and romance.

Nora does it again

Would you consider the audio edition of Island of Glass to be better than the print version?

Loved this series. I'm a huge Nora fan and she didn't disappoint. It's such a let down when I finish because I always want more and want to know what happens next. I'll re-listen to them again and again.

What did you like best about this story?

Very well written. She really knows how to develop a story and keep you engaged without getting bored.

What about Saskia Maarleveld’s performance did you like?

I've recently listened to another series by another author and all 7 of the narrations were terrible. Saskia knows how to make each character different and has a pleasing voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES and I almost did. I finished it in 1 1/2 days.

Not up to Nora Roberts's Usual Standards

I waited, with baited breath, for the release of the final part of this trilogy series so perhaps my expectations were high. It seems they were too high: this trilogy felt like a regurgitation of her Circle trilogy.

So sad to have reached the end!

I want to be a Lichen. All the characters in this trilogy are magical and I didn't want the story to end, ever. Not usually a fantasy or magic fan, this series had me hooked from the beginning. The narrator did a superb job with all the accents, mostly Irish, but there were a few others as well. The settings in which the story took place were perfect. It makes me want to visit them all, especially Ireland. Give this trilogy by Nora Roberts a try, you will love it!
