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 the legends and lore of Ireland running through his blood, falconer Connor O’Dwyer is proud to call County Mayo home. It’s where his sister, Branna, lives and works, where his cousin, Iona, has found true love, and where his childhood friends form a circle that can’t be broken.…
A circle that is about to be stretched out of shape - by a long-awaited kiss.
Meara Quinn is Branna’s best friend, a sister in all but blood. Her and Connor’s paths cross almost daily, as Connor takes tourists on hawk walks and Meara guides them on horseback across the lush countryside. She has the eyes of a gypsy and the body of a goddess…things Connor has always taken for granted - until his brush with death propels them into a quick, hot tangle.
Plenty of women have found their way to Connor’s bed, but none to his heart until now. Frustratingly, Meara is okay with just the heat, afraid to lose herself - and their friendship - to something more. But soon, Connor will see the full force and fury of what runs in his blood. And he will need his family and friends around him when his past rolls in like the fog, threatening an end to all he loves.…

Narration is terrible

What did you love best about Shadow Spell?

The story itself is good, and I wish that I had just purchased the book and read it to myself. The narrator stops so frequently that it is distracting and annoying.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Shadow Spell?

Not very far into the story, but I may have to purchase the Kindle version to get through it.

How could the performance have been better?

Please. Stop. Pausing. So. Often. It. Is. Painful. To. Listen. To.

Any additional comments?

I would like to see them do something similar to what was done with Whiskey Beach (new narrator). I looked forward to this book coming out and now feel really disappointed.

What is up with this narrator?

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator! He is awful. I have gotten used to Nora Roberts books having better narrators. This one doesn’t even know how to make it sound like he’s not reading the book let alone have an Irish accent. I can’t listen to any more. I going to get the kindle book and finish reading it there!

What did you like best about this story?

Haven't finished it yet. I'm going to read it on my Kindle.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alan Smyth?

Susan Ericksen. She knows how to put life into characters and how to do an Irish accent.
