I have been a Nora Roberts fan for quite some time now, but I must say I find this series to be disappointing. I haven't read the last book in the series yet, but I feel as if these first two books are just dragging their literary feet in order to fill up 600 pages before the big battle at Samhain, or whatever. It's dull to read 600 pages in which nothing really exciting happens. Yes, there's a skirmish here and there, but there's nothing exciting to keep me going because, well, we all know Roberts won't kill of anyone in the circle of 6. We also all know that the protagonists will get over their psychological baggage and whatnot during the course of the book and end up with each other. Yaawn. I am slightly looking forward to the third book because Cian and Moira will finally get it on. Now that's an interesting conflict. The first two of the trilogy, so far, are so so.
