Review - Morrigan's Cross by Nora Roberts

Morrigan's Cross (Circle trilogy #1)Morrigan's Cross by Nora Roberts

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I started this I was expecting a lot, again with a vampire in it your pretty much sure it is going to be good (if your a vampire fan). It starts pretty quickly establishing the relationship between our main character Hoyt Mac Cionaoith and his brother and the devastating events that turn them against each other.

Hoyt is a sorcerer and his brother is a vampire, turning brothers into enemies. There is much worse to come as Cian is turned by the vampire queen Lilith who is set on destroying our world as we know it and Hoyt has to travel time and the world to get his "army" together to go up against her. The army is made up of the most unlikely allies and the numbers are against them being successful.

This is the first in a series and follows the build up of the greatest battle on earth. It isn't just a war story, it has friendship, love, loss and courage. Initially I didn't think I would rate it as although it started good with the dramatic scene with Hoyt, Lilith and his brother I didn't fancy the way he conjoured his magic (the ryhming of it) however as the book when on it actually became something I liked as part of their ritual.

I now will have to get the second book to find out what happens next as it ends rather gripping and certainly wanting more. This is my first Nora Roberts and certainly wont be my last 4/5 for me.
