    I adore Nora Roberts, in a comforting and reliable kind of way. Having read everything she's written (as Nora Roberts), admittedly I tend to go into each new story with certain...expectations. THE AWAKENING being The Dragon Heart Legacy: Book 1, I'm sort of certain as to how ...

    An author new to me, check. A fantasy read, which I rarely venture into, check. A book won via Shelf Awareness that is coming out in November, check. After all that, why not jump in and read it. So I did and I enjoyed every minute of it. Breen is living with her best friend Marco. S...

    I would give this book 4&1/2 stars if I could. A slow start kept it from getting 5 stars. Once I got into the story and met all the characters the book moved quickly. It is the first book in NR's new trilogy. I'm looking forward to the second book as Nora left her readers...

    This was an interesting first book in a series that very much felt like a very extended introduction. The bulk of the middle of this book was the training sequence in any chosen one narrative. It wasn't entirely unenjoyable, it just went on for so long. The beginning bit was a r...

    Actual rating: 4.5 stars, rounded up. I know of no medicine better than a Nora Roberts book. Whenever I?m feeling down or overwhelmed or just in need of something comforting, her books are always a welcoming escape. The Awakening, the first installment in her newest series, is no ...

    ?If you rock no boat, you never end up in the water to see where the waves might take you.? I love so many of the quotes from this book, but this one really speaks to me and feels like it summarizes the story line for Breen, the main character, very well. Breen is from two worlds, ...

    This is my first Nora Roberts book. I know. I couldn't believe I have never read anything else by her either. And I really enjoyed this first book of her new fantasy series. Roberts is a very seasoned writer, and it totally shows in her way of storytelling. I love the pacing of...

    I must say that the storytelling was fantastic. This author really brought to life not only Ireland, but this alternate universe she created. Just the scenery alone was worth the read. This first book is more about the heroine, Breen learning who she really is, and shedding the old ...

    2.5 stars -- I am a huge fan of La Nora, but I had a very mixed experience with this first entry in a new paranormal series from her. The things I liked were the actual magic system and world the fantasy elements are based on. They are all coorelated to the Fey and set in an alternate ...

    I absolutely fell in love with this new world Nora Roberts has created. She has painted it in such vivid detail that I felt as though I was discovering it right alongside Breen. And I never want to leave. In fact, I'd probably consider giving a kidney for books two and three right...

    2.5/5 I have to admit it is really hard to summon my thoughts of this one. To be honest, I am not quite sure what the author actually wanted to say.. Contemporary fiction with a spark of fantasy - it does sound like a great idea, but unfortunately the execution of it wasn't rea...
