Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a trilogy about the land we’re drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love.…
With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland.
County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.
Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan’s directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O’Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives.
When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he’s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package.
Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself - and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona’s family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope - and love – alive.…
Don’t miss the next two books in the Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy!

Gotta love/hate Nora Roberts

Would you listen to Dark Witch again? Why?

Maybe in a couple of years. The plot is already much too familiar - have I read/listened to this before?

What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

Have I read/listened to this before? There is somethng about a good Nora Roberts book, but I didn't really find it here. I really like her style, and I really like her paranormal books. This one was cheating a little by using the familiar formula - but I guess that's the same as writing about all the members of a family or sci-fi all set on the same world so I'll accept it. It's a good thing she doesn't get into more descriptive sex - that's a weakness for her-one she avoided here by the G rating I'd give it.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Some of the narration was so good I was really sucked in. I loved the running off at the mouth main character - I talk too much when I'm nervous so it was fun and well done. Great accents and very easy (90% of the time) to tell the characters apart. Then she just got way too loud in the important or dramatic scenes. Tone down the drama and I'll give her 5 stars.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

not one particular moment - but Nora made Iona's lack of family background subtle and poignent (wish i could spell)

Any additional comments?

Solid enjoyable read that was more that the sum of it's very weak parts. I'm not sure why, but I did enjoy it.

Turn the volume down!

Would you listen to Dark Witch again? Why?

I am only half way through the audio book. I love the story but I have had to stop several times to rest my ear drums. The narrator keeps yelling in a high pitch voice through most of the book so far.It's like listening to a high pitched drama queen narrate a good book.

Might be a better book to curl up on the couch and read instead.

What didn’t you like about Katherine Kellgren’s performance?

Stop yelling!

Fantastic modern witchy tale

set in the beautiful County Mayo Katherine Kellgren transports you back to a time of witch craft and famine where a young witch lives the life of a mother as well as a powerful witch but evil is never far away ... centuries later that evil still lingers when the last part of the puzzle comes to mayo in the form of a cousin. Horses, Hawks, dogs and friendships take this tale from a bit of a slushy love story to a pleasant tale which I really enjoyed. It wasn't a taxing listen and fairly light hearted.

Dreadful Accent!

What disappointed you about Dark Witch?

The performance completely spoiled the story.

What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

The performance

How could the performance have been better?

If the reader had been someone who had some idea of an Irish Accent - surely an important element to a story?

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No, because I have previously enjoyed READING Nora Roberts and will do so in the future, I hope

Hard to listen to

I found the constant ‘urgent’ type tempo hard to listen to - and it lost the nuances of the story.

The story is ok but nothing amazing
