Valley of Silence (Circle Trilogy #3)
Having traveled through the Dance of the Gods to the land of Geall, the circle finds themselves convincing then training the people of Geall to defeat Lilith’s vampire army. The Valley of Silence is a forbidding place for the battle of all battles, but the circle continues to prepare through magic and a few early stakeouts that test their strength individually and as a tea...more
Oh, the ending! *le sigh* I just want to read it over and over and over and over again...

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...more
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...more
Quick note - I'm glad the battle didn't go on forever. I was afraid we were goin...more
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...more
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...more
You know this is a romance series as opposed to a true fantasy series in that the epic battle at...more
::: The Circle's Last Stand :::
Valley of Silence is the third book in Roberts' Circle Trilogy, which focuses on six people chose by the goddes...more
I love Cian- the dark, male lead who struggles against the evil that made him, that is a part of him he feels he can never over come. The glimpses into his past, his regret,the way he loves the young queen but is determined to deny her...great stuff. Moira's character begins as a young girl full of d...more
With the last preparations at hand the local women having been taught to defend themselves if and when necessary decide to follow the lead of these strong strange women from the future who trained them, and demand to march with the men to war. Thousand of pieces to the preparations all having to be over seen at some level by one of the circle, can...more
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.
I have to adm...more
Neste último volume da Trilogia do Circulo, temos a história de Moira e Cian.
Moira está destinada a ser a rainha de Geall. Mais do que nunca ela sente isso e quando...more
"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...more
A conclusão da Trilogia do Círculo, O Vale do Silêncio, traz-nos finalmente a história de Cian, o vampiro, e Moira a futura rainha de Geall.
Do círculo de personagens criado por Nora Roberts, esta dupla revelou-se...more
Nele podemos acompanhar a subida ao trono de Moira, bem como uma evolução desta. Vemos o amor entre ela e Cian fazê-los mais do que são, o que é lindo. Foi difícil eles assumirem, mas uma vez feito, foi bonito ver o romance entre eles, bem...more
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...more

Continuando a explorar o lado romântico da narrativa nota-se agora, no entanto, um maior cuidado por parte da autora em desenvolver pormenores dedicados à grande batalha...more
Also, I'm kind of getting tired of the way every single male character is the same in all of these stories. Like every man alive...more
So much goes on in these books I cant go into to much detail but if you enjoy anything to do with either magic, supernatural and paranormal you will love this Tril...more
And then there is the romance. This wouldn't be a Nora Roberts book if it didn't have romance. Since the "circle" had six members...more
Eleanor Marie Robertson was born on October 10, 1950 in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA. She was the youngest of the five children, also the only girl, of a marriage with Irish ancestors. Her family were avid readers, so books were always important in her life. She attended a Catholic school and credits the nuns with instilling in her a sense of discipline. During her sopho...more
