Who knew she wrote more than Gooey Romance.

This series was my first exposure to Nora Roberts, I have to admit I never gave her books a second look, why would I read a trashy romance novel. Well I found I had been painting her with a very prejudiced brush, what a mistake! This is a great fantasy series, and the romance there is is very fun and not over the top. I will definitely look for more fantasy books from Ms. Roberts.

wonderful book, especially if you enjoy fantasy and romance!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It had the perfect mix of fantasy and romance. Blair is not your typical romance novel heroine. All of the main characters contribute to the story with their unique personalities and style. This is a great trilogy!

Dance of the Imagination...

Not as superb as the first book of the triology, but still fabulous! The story had some lags and the romance between the two was just not as intense as that of Hoyt and Glenna, but still another smash hit filled with all awe! Fantasy and reality have a heavenly mix once again! A MUST READ TRILOGY!!

Fantastic Second Book in a Must Read Trilogy!!!

"Dance of the Gods" continues the excellent Circle Trilogy. Since there are already many recaps of plot, I will skip over that. Although this book would be a fine read on its own, I think that these three novels should be treated as one long book issued in three installments, instead of a trilogy. There is so much character development in the first novel, that jumping straight into this book will have you missing out on a lot of the subtle nuances that make this book not just a good read, but a great story. I loved the character of Blair. While there are bound to Buffy comparisons, I think that Nora Roberts did a good job of creating a demon hunter in her own vision of what one should be. Just because Buffy existed, doesn't mean that demon/vampire hunters aren't an interesting concept and Roberts' twist on this is just fantastic. Vampire/demon hunter stories existed long before Buffy did, and not all of them need to be compared to each other. Blair is a great heroine. She is strong and heroic. She doesn't shy away from the darker aspects of her job or the hard decisions her job brings. Larkin is also a great character, although he did annoy me a couple of times in his over emotional reactions to the situations they were in. However, he annoyed me as a person would annoy me, which means he was very well drawn. Roberts does a marvelous job of creating a strong female character who is genuinely strong and not the typical "feisty but weak" you see in so many other books. Blair isn't weak, she's human. Larkin isn't so insecure in his masculinity that he needs her to be something she isn't. It is a great pairing. I am glad that these three books were released so closely together. They are difficult to put down once you start reading them. Even with Blair and Larkin's story being wrapped up, the Circle Trilogy is far from over, and that has me eagerly anticipating reading the next book in the series. Read these books in order. The first two were both fantastic and you really do have much more depth to the situation and the people involved if you have the complete picture instead of the summary in the beginning. These books are going on my keep shelf, and I am certain that I will reread them often as they are simply fantastic!

Danger and excitement increase as another couple of the Six bond.

In this middle book of the Circle Trilogy, the Circle of Six (Hoyt, Cian, Glenna, Larkin, Moira and Blair) go on the offensive with some mixed results! The first book ended after Hoyt the sorcerer and Glenna the witch's handfasting that was interrupted by a battle with Lora -- lover/best friend of Lilith, queen of vampyres, and a try to save some "humans" captured from a nearby town. Now Larkin and Blair talk over the battle and how it was even beyond Blair's 13 years of demon hunting experience. Blair has been alone for those 13 years and since her mom left her dad and took her brother, she was under her dad's tutelage that was cold and harsh. Blair did try to become engaged a few years ago to a stockbroker named Jeremy. However, once she told and "showed" him what she really did, Jeremy was disgusted and revolted and left her. Blair enjoys the "hunky" Larkin's company and that of the others in the Circle but knows she will always be alone. Larkin of Geall on the other hand was raised in a warm and loving family. His father was brother to the recently deceased queen and uncle to Moira of the Six who should be the next queen. Larkin is also a naturally charming and flirty type of guy so as he puts the "moves" on Blair, she takes it as a lust type of thing as anything else is beyond her understanding and experience. In this middle book while the battles ramp up and the scenery and battleground changes to another world, the romance is very slow moving between Larkin and Blair. I felt more Larkin's love and tenderness and passion for Blair and less of Blair's feelings for Larkin as I felt they were a bit underdeveloped in the whole scheme of things. Blair seemed a little too "in love" with Larking's shape shifting and some of the creataures he became and less in love with the man he is. Overall an exciting and action-packed middle book that you have to read through in one sitting!!
