I have read Nora Roberts for years and she never ceases to carry me away with her novels. My favorites are the series like this one, the one that spins a tale of magic right along with the characters that are so easy to love. Dark Witch is the first in a new series, The Cousins O'Dwyer Trilogy.

There is so much to love about this book... love, magic, intrigue, friendship, and the eternal battle between good and evil. And all of this is woven with the lovely lilting language of Ireland and all of the magical mythology of that land. The romance between Iona and Boyle is wonderful, but the true focus of the story is the magic and the battle. I love a story that includes the romance we all love, but doesn't make it the entire focus of the story.

Iona is a fabulous female lead, American-born, but of Irish descent. Her life hasn't really been bad, but she has felt disconnected and at odds with her life. So she decides to turn her own life on end and move to Ireland, to the place of her grandmother's childhood, in an effort to find her roots and find the place where she truly belongs. Part of her journey was to seek out her cousins, Branna and Connor. Once the three are united, it is then the magic truly begins.

I really love that the magic of the story isn't limited to just the three cousins. It includes three of their friends as well, all of whom instantly accept Iona as one of their own. The circle that the six make include siblings, friends, lovers, cousins. Branna and Connor are siblings, cousins to Iona. Meara is Branna's best friend, not magical, but clearly a warrior in her own right. Boyle is friend to Connor, strong and steady and the perfect foil for Iona. And there is Fin, who has magic, and an interesting story, of his own. He is Connor and Boyle's friend and he clearly has a past with Branna. Each of the six brings something different to the table and the mixed cast of characters is so interesting.

Things to love...

--The blend of the past and the present. Most of the story is told in the present, but the beginnings of the battle between good and evil are rooted in the distant past of the late 1200's.
--The blend of magic and romance. The romance adds spice to the story without overpowering a really fantastic plot.
--The lovely lilt of the Irish spoken word. Love, love, love it and it comes through so clearly in Roberts' words.

My Recommendation: I can't say enough for this book. I love it! It's been out awhile, but I purposely held on to it until all three books were out. I knew that once I started, I would NEED the next book!

This book makes me so sad, and I hate to write a bad review -- for Nora Roberts! The woman we always buy in hard cover!

1) This was so much like her last magical series. Just plopped down in Ireland (with lovely imagery I will admit).
2) There were grammatical mistakes! What the heck? Easy ones, ones that were caught while the Kindle was reading aloud to me. How bad can you get?
3) There were plot inconsistencies (again while being read aloud when I won't catch nearly as much).

Why was there not great editing for this book? At least give me a good solid book and I'll be happy, even if it isn't of the same Nora Roberts quality. Hmm....maybe she's now got a ghost writer?

I'll probably read the next two, but I won't bother spending much. I hope this doesn't bode ill for future Nora Roberts books, hmm?

Won't spend a great deal of time ripping this apart, but this story has already been done. The Three Sister Island Trilogy was written with great talent as well as the Circle Trilogy.

It's almost as if Roberts didn't write this or she's losing her touch.

WHO would name their male romantic lead "Boyle?"

The entire time I could only think of a painful, fluid filled boil on someones butt that needed to be lanced.

This story was choppy and never seemed to take you in deep enough to develop characters and make you want to move on to book two.
This is the typical trilogy and done by Roberts before:

Three women that can do spells and magic.
Book one gets the first witch together with her man.
Book two, gets the second witch together with her man.
Book three, does the same.

Been there, read that already.

I won't be reading the next two because I simply could care less.
4.0 su 5 stelle Dark Witch is a great addition to Nora Roberts’s collection of books. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading Book 2. 29 marzo 2014

When shall we three meet again? In thunder, lightning, or in rain? When the hurlyburly’s done, When the battle’s lost and won.

-William Shakespeare, Macbeth

And so the tone is set for Nora Robert’s, The Dark Witch.

It is the Winter of 1263 and we are introduced to Sorcha and her three wonderful children. We learn of her powers, her struggles, and her sacrifices. We learn of the importance of her home and her family. We fall in love with this strong and powerful witch and our heart breaks with the losses that she endures.

Fast-forward to the year 2013 and we meet Iona Sheehan. She is beginning her new life in County Mayo, Ireland. Iona is a take-charge kind of gal. She is an only child that grew up with disinterested parents and has always felt that she never fit into her life. The stories of their ancestors in Ireland, told to her by grandmother, bring Iona comfort. It is with those stories in her heart that she sells all her belongings and moves to Ireland in hopes of finding a place where she finally feels at home.

We soon meet Iona’s cousins, Branna and Connor and discover that all three are descendants of Scorcha. The story unfolds as the three cousins get to know one another and Iona settles into her new life in County Mayo, Ireland.

There is magic, love, danger, and suspense as the battle between good and evil is began anew and the connections between the past and the present are revealed.

One of the things that I enjoy about Nora Roberts books is that each one usually features a couple and a continuing story line. You get a sense of resolution but can’t wait to see what will happen next.

I enjoyed all of the characters in this story. Iona was my favorite with her strong, honest, and somewhat innocent personality but I am looking forward to seeing Connor fall in love in a future book.

The romance part of the book was great. I enjoyed Boyle’s character and I loved his reactions to Iona’s honest and straightforward approach to life. We meet some other characters and you get a good idea of how the future romantic couples may play out.

Dark Witch is a great addition to Nora Roberts’s collection of books. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading Book 2, Shadow Spell very soon.

I thought I was taking crazy pills when I saw the 4.2 rating, but then I saw the most helpful reviews and felt a little more sane. I purposefully haven't read a Nora Roberts book in nearly a year because they all started sounding the exact same. Especially her trilogies. As a previous reviewer said, three female friends, three male friends (or sisters/brothers), having powwows, trying to overcome some evil force. It's like she has a formula and she just drops in new names, a new setting, a slightly different storyline and maybe changes up a few things. This reminded me of the 7 trilogy and the one set in Pittsburgh with Rowena and Pitt.

As others mentioned, I really felt like I didn't know Boyle at all. Iona was an open book, but Boyle had no personality. How on earth could she fall in love with him? I felt no passion at all. I wonder how Connor and Meara's relationship will be. There wasn't much build-up to that for laying the groundworks. That would have been nice.

I also felt like her portrayal of Ireland was a little contrived. And so stereotypical.

Unlike some reviewers who like how she goes into details about topics, I always found it a little trivial and boring. I want the story, not all of these add-ons that don't necessarily drive the plot. Additionally, I feel like her characters are always saying the same thing, over and over.

In 2006 my best friend and I met Nora Roberts at the Romance Writers' of America convention in Atlanta. My best friend asked her what inspires her to write, and she just commented that really nothing does, she just writes. It really sounded like she doesn't love what she does. I think she must since she has written so many books, but she sounded so blasé about it, it kinda turned me off. So maybe she sees this as a job now, and not a passion. I certainly hope not. But I don't think I will continue with these. At least, not if I have to pay for them.

I got this because it was $4.99 - but I think even that is too much. Oh well.
