Publisher's Summary

The final Guardians Trilogy novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Bay of Sighs and Stars of Fortune.
As the hunt for the Star of Ice leads the six guardians to Ireland, Doyle, the immortal, must face his tragic past. Three centuries ago, he closed off his heart, yet his warrior spirit is still drawn to the wild. And there's no one more familiar with the wild than Riley - and the wolf within her....
An archaeologist, Riley is no stranger to the coast of Clare, but now she finds herself on unsure footing, targeted by the dark goddess who wants more than the stars, more than the blood of the guardians. While searching through Irish history for clues that will lead them to the final star and the mysterious Island of Glass, Riley must fight her practical nature and admit her sudden attraction to Doyle is more than just a fling. For it is his strength that will sustain her and give her the power to run towards love - and save them all....

NR Trilogy - great story

I enjoy NR's work and am a big fan. This 3rd book had a few unexpected elements (no spoilers from me) and some expected elements. When you have a Seer as one of the main characters, you get a glimpse of what is coming.
While I enjoyed most of the performance, it was difficult to hear the difference between Bran & Doyle much of the time. And there were a few times the lead ladies sounded alike. That was the most disappointing thing about this story for me. Even with that, I am glad they didn't change performers. That is a jolt for me.
I was taken away on a journey with this trilogy which is exactly what I want and expect from NR!

Decent story, but where's the character growth?

This is a typical Nora Roberts trilogy, and maybe that's the problem. I expect more from a trilogy then I got from this. For a story that covers three books, there was little to no character growth. In particular, Sasha made me want to virtually smack some backbone into her. I can understand hesitancy and uncertainty at the beginning, but by book three, she shouldn't turn into a quivering heap of irritation at every challenge.

But that was true of all the characters. Other than the hook-ups, there is little difference in most of them from the first book to the last (with the exception of the mermaid). A good story isn't enough any more. You need good characters to go with them, and Roberts might have pulled this batch out one too many times.
