Cian and Moira... You know, the first time I read this book, it was the last book in my first Nora Roberts series... and so, while I should have guessed that Cian and Moira would hook up (since the trilogy had 3 girls and 3 guys in it and 2 couples had already been formed out of those), I didn't really expect it. They are SO SO DIFFERENT. And, honestly, I didn't see many s

By far the best in the series! I just love Cian, and I just loved Moria for him. Nora ended this Trilogy with the perfect mix of nail biting suspense and justice.

All six of the circle were so well blended and the characters were so real that I actually felt like I made new friends.

And for all of you who have read this don't you just love what Nora/Goddess Morrigan did for Cian?!?! Of course you saw it coming and of course that's not what usually "happens", but this writer can make anything bel

I love this story. I don't know how many times I had tears pooling in my eyes. I tried to keep track, but lost count. ;-)

I loved that the final battle was actually involved, and took several pages (six?) and many scenes to complete. (I read a book recently, can't remember its title, where the final battle took maybe three paragraphs and was incredibly disappointing and anticlimactic.) This battle actually seemed, to me as I was reading it, to be never-ending. (Which is sort of funny when you con

I avoided this trilogy for more than a year because I thought that they sounded terrible, and I was annoyed at Nora for jumping on the vampire bandwagon when that isn't what her books are like at all. I read it because I was bored and in need of a quality sedative to fall asleep at night. Truthfully - it was excellent. All three books were epic, and brought back to me the fantasy favorites of my youth. The pairing up of couples didn't feel as contrived as in some of her most recent magic-y trilo ...more

The conclusion of the trilogy and Moira and Cian's story.

The two were the couple I was most interested in from the beginning, as they started with animosity and the obstacles between them seemed insurmountable, which are two of my favorite tropes.

The war is imminent and our heroes are trying to prepare their army and themselves, while dealing with various attacks and mind games by the vampire queen, who's becoming more unhinged as time goes by. There are a few threads involving her that are dist

Moira Riddick is a part of the six, a regent whose duty is to her people, and it's just a part of her as the claddagh that is seared on her arm as the sword of her office.

All right, first off, have you seen a claddagh? It's essentially a heart being held by two hands with a crown on top. It's not really a heraldic standard that says, "Mess with the kingdom, and have your arse handed to you on a platter" is it? England has the three lions, the Scottish knights of the thistle have a lion and a th

O Vale do Silêncio o último volume na trilogia do círculo , e o melhor de toda a trilogia, a minha nota para ele são 4,5* faltou um bocadinho so para as 5* mas eu sou muito exigente com elas , Este livro nos deixa onde o Baile dos Deuses terminou que é na preparação para a grande batalha contra Lilith .
Em relação aos outros volumes no Vale do Silêncio achei um romance muito mais trabalhado ,profundo e intimo , ao contrario dos antecessores , a Química e o amor entre o Cian e a Moira foi algo rea

SYNOPSIS: In the kingdom of Geall, the scholarly Moira has taken up the sword of her people. Now, as queen, she must prepare her subjects for the greatest battle they will ever fight--against an enemy more vicious than any they have seen. For Lilith, the most powerful vampire in the world, has followed the circle of six through time to Geall.

Moira also has a personal score to settle. Vampires killed her mother--and now, she is ready to exact her revenge. But there is one vampire to whom she woul

This book is true to Nora Roberts trilogy formulas, which are as always, predictable, but for some reason I love her trilogies. The story of three women, sometimes she uses men, who have to conquer some quest, almost always involving magic of some sort. Each book of the trilogy focuses on one of the three characters, and they conquer some personal quest of their own, AND fall in love, while contributing majorly to the quest of the whole group, which is inevitably completed/won in the final book ...more

This was by far my favourite book of the trilogy and well worth the wait. Cian and Moira's tale was wonderfully told (okay if a little predictable) and had some actually barriers to it happening. The first two relationships really didn't have any barriers / conflict to them which made them quick fun books to read but not all that amazing. This one had some depth to the issues the pair had to overcome to be together.

Quick note - I'm glad the battle didn't go on forever. I was afraid we were goin

Valley of Silence is book 3 of Circle Trilogy by Nora Roberts. This book is my favorite and the conclusion are well done. The ending kinda easily predicted, but if everybody happy in the end, why readers must complain? *grin*

To read Valley of Silence, readers must read 2 previous books, Morrigan's Cross and Dance of the Gods. The story is about 6 people who must defeat Lilith, the Queen of The Vampire, so she can't reign over mortal and Gods world, with blessing from The Mo

4.5 Depois do início em A Cruz de Morrigan, onde conhecemos o mundo em questão, e da continuação em O Baile dos Deuses, onde testemunhamos toda a preparação para a batalhar final, temos finalmente o derradeiro desfecho da história do círculo em O Vale do Silêncio. Sem dúvida uma trilogia que de livro para livro ficou cada vez melhor.

Neste último volume da Trilogia do Circulo, temos a história de Moira e Cian.

I can say only that this is my favorite book from the trilogy. It wasn't about Cian... Well maybe and because of him. But this one was filled with tension on every page. Preparing for the battle, everything... My favorite part is with the dragons. Nora describe them so good and beautiful that even my breath stopped while I was reading this. This trilogy is amazing, not only because Nora is great author, simply because is so different from her style and in same time she crossed magic, love and ba ...more

Oh wow, what a phenomenal trilogy and a fabulous finale.

It didn't matter that I'd figured some things out, guessing early in the first book, because the overall story still had my heart racing so that I had to remind myself to breathe.

I need my own copies of these books, so that I may read them all over again.

I absolutely loved this trilogy!

Then again, I really like Vampire lore.
Cian was my favorite guy, he was the most complex, wonderfully drawn character of the bunch. He and Moira made a wonderful pairing, my heartstrings tugged at the moments where they knew they deeply loved each other, but knew they couldn't have a life together with him as a vampire who will live forever and her as queen of an ancient world. My favorite lady was Blair, she and Larkin made a very close second in the couples/rom

A nice conclusion to the romantic trilogy, and pitting the third, most unlikely pair, together romantically. While I knew these two would eventually get together, with 3 books to hint at their growing feelings, I wasn't completely sold on their love for each other as I was with the other two couples. But that didn't stop me from hoping (and knowing) that everything would work out for them in the end.

You know this is a romance series as opposed to a true fantasy series in that the epic battle at

Omg, I extremely loved this book. I literally couldn't put it down and read it in one day. I have so much to say that I don't know from were to start.
Firts of all I loved the way Nora dedicates one book for each couple but how they still grow and get stronger in the next one. Some would say It was predictable, but hell with them. I' m incredibly pleased when I find out that what Ii expecting came true and that my poor heart can rest of the agony of thinking it might be otherwise.

"O Vale do Silêncio" é o terceiro volume da trilogia do Círculo, da mais que conceituada Nora Roberts, na sua vertente de fantasia.
O mais aguardado e, o melhor dos três livros, sem dúvida alguma!
"A Cruz de Morrigan" foi o início do círculo, e emparelhou a bruxa contemporânea Glenna, e o feiticeiro medieval Hoyt.
"O Baile dos Deuses" trouxe-nos a preparação da grande batalha, e a chegada a Geall, onde juntou a guerreira e descendente de Hoyt e Cian do sécul XXI, com um aristocrata de Geall muito p

Vou ser sincera: não li nenhum outro livro desta trilogia, aliás só fiquei a saber que este livro pertencia a uma trilogia quando o livro chegou e eu fui ver as informações do livro. Já perdi um pouco o gosto por livros do género fantástico, acho que me cansei deles por isso li este livro com um bocado de custo e sem a máxima atenção que costumo dar aos livros que gosto.

Não estou de maneira nenhuma a dizer que o livro é mau ou bom, estou a dizer que secalhar a minha disposição para o fantástico

This is my favorite book in the series. I LOVE Cian and Moira more than I can possibly say. They are such adorable characters and so stubborn. Moira is my spirit animal in literature and she's put through so much in this book. The final battle scene always makes my heart beat faster and I may have to have all the lights on in the house, but it's so worth it. Solid series with a lot of great writing. YAY Nora!

The third and final book in the Circle Trilogy and this was Cian (good vampire) and Moira's (scholar/queen with healing and magical abilities) story--with a lot of previous character(s) involvement.

I thought this book started a little slow. There was a lot of time spent on training, recon activity and tangling with the bad vampires. A lot of mundane activities--in the beginning. But, once things picked up the book skyrockets into action. The final battle was wonderful and this book reveals who

Nora Roberts was born in Silver Spring, Maryland. She began writing when a blizzard in February 1979 kept her in her hilltop home with a three and six year old for nearly a week of canceled kindergarten and dwindling chocolate supplies.

During the now-famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write a story for her own entertainment. From the first page, she knew it was wha
