Valley of Silence by Nora Roberts

Title: Valley of Silence

Author: Nora Roberts

Genre: Fantasy

Summary: The Circle of Six stands ready with its army to face Lilith in the final battle.


The Take-Away: It moved slowly. I don't attribute it the fact that it was the third in the series, and the obvious conclusions of "Happily Ever After," but rather the relationship between the final pairing of lovers -- the Queen and the Vampire.

While it was obvious that they were attracted to one another, it felt forced at times, even superficial in the conflicts. I sort of felt like they wouldn't have fallen in love, if Lilith hadn't been hovering over them. They would have walked away, if they had not been the last of the Circle and drawn together in battle.

However, I worried about this going in. I'd be interested in knowing the thoughts of others, either in this trilogy or others.

Recommendation: Read it in order to find out what really happens, and report back to see if you had the same reaction to the final couple.
