Dance of the Gods (Circle Trilogy)


Dance of the Gods (Circle Trilogy)


Combining elements of the supernatural with gripping suspense and seduction, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents the second novel in her Circle Trilogy…
 
He saw where the earth was scorched, where it was trampled. He saw his own hoofprints left in the sodden earth when he’d galloped through the battle in the form of a horse. And he saw the woman who’d ridden him, slashing destruction with a flaming sword… 
 
Blair Murphy has always worked alone. Destined to be a demon hunter in a world that doesn’t believe in such things, she lives for the kill. But now, she finds herself the warrior in a circle of six, chosen by the goddess Morrigan to defeat the vampire Lilith and her minions.
 
Learning to trust the others has been hard, for Blair has never allowed herself such a luxury. But she finds herself drawn to Larkin, a man of many shapes. As a horse, he is proud and graceful; as a dragon, beautifully fierce; and as a man…well, Blair has never seen one quite so ruggedly handsome and playfully charming as this nobleman from the past.
 
In two months’ time, the circle of six will face Lilith and her army in Geall. To complete preparations and round up forces to fight, the circle travels through time to Larkin’s world, where Blair must choose between battling her overwhelming attraction to him—or risking everything for a love that can never be…

    MUCH better than the first book in the series!, October 4, 2006

    I must admit that I bought this one because I love Ms. Roberts’ writing, not because I loved the first book and couldn’t wait for this one. Usually, the first books in her series get me all excited about the books to follow, but the first one didn’t do that for me. It was okay, but not great. I liked the characters, generally speaking, but some of them (Blair, in particular) did not appeal to me. She felt like a slightly revamped (no pun intended, given the nature of one of the characters) version of Buffy. So when I saw this book on my local grocery store’s shelf on Sunday (yes, before the scheduled release date), I picked it up, but not with any great anticipation.

    I was pretty surprised to find that I came to like and respect Blair. This book in the series really develops her character, and she becomes far less stereotypical. I also liked Larkin more than I expected to.

    In her usual fashion, Ms. Roberts develops part of the unique group of characters so that we’re not focusing on too much character development at once, but she makes clear what’s coming up in the series by how she develops the relationships between non-central characters. In this case, the upcoming book will likely be focused on the relationship between Moira and Cian. Honestly, that’s the relationship I’ve been waiting to read about, and I knew halfway through book one that it would be the last to be explored. In one sense, I wish I already had THAT book in my hot little hands, but in another, I’m all for building the anticipation/suspense and getting people panting for the last book. It’s just that. . .well. . .Cian is the only character I found truly enticing and thought-provoking all along, so I’m kind of REALLY wishing his story was being told. Heh. I lack patience.

    One of the things I really love about Ms. Roberts’ writing is that her characters are genuinely positive human beings. Not without flaws, but compassionate and loving at their cores. I really enjoy picking up a book that, at its end, will have left me with an overwhelmingly GOOD feeling about the way human beings can be, how much they can yearn for and succeed in establishing a connection between each other. This has been the case since that one trilogy of hers where I first saw a family dealing with a child who’d been abused, and an older brother who himself had been abused. I’m sorry that the series name escapes me, but I distinctly remember reading each of those books with a glad heart, not glad because of the subject matter, but glad because of the triumph of love over neglect and pain.

    Each time I read a Nora Roberts novel, it seems, I find myself on the bus, book in hand, tears in eyes, joy in heart.

    This book, Dance of the Gods, was no exception. I’m really looking forward to the last book in this series.

    Fantastic Second Book in a Must Read Trilogy!!!, November 17, 2006

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    “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!

    Much better, October 10, 2006

    While the first installment of this trilogy left me feeling just a little put out with Ms. Roberts, this second one more than redeems her. Everything starts to fall into place, almost from the beginning. I struggled to finish the first, but the second has been a total whirlwind from beginning to end. The characters become much more real and the storyline improves dramatically. There is just enough horror to put that little extra something into it and the romance is very sweet. My favorite character, like many other reviewers, is the dark and seductive Cian. Right behind him is Blair. I, too, am a big “Buffy” fan and Blair reminds me of the Buffy from the last season…too serious for her own good, but still with the heart of a woman. She has seen too much in her short lifetime and yet manages to fall in love at a time when love seems the last possibility. I wait impatiently for the final installment, it’s sure to be page turner.
