Call me a wuss, but The Pagan Stone scared the living daylights out of me. NR's description of the Big Evil was so good that my vivid imagination didn't have any problem bringing it to life. I actually had to stop reading this book last night and find something "lighter" to do, because the Big Evil was the last thing I wanted to have on my mind when I turned off all the lights.

From the publisher:

A great ending to a good trilogy - even with too many over-stated conversations…

I soooo wanted to say a perfect ending to the trilogy, but I can’t. I was so looking forward to reading this one, to giving it a 5-star rating, like I do with most of NR’s novels, but I can’t.

We continue the Sign of Seven trilogy, this time with Gage and Cybil’s story. While it’s obvious to the reader that these two will end up together (every love story has to have an

I'm sorry, I was just bored by this book. Research, research, research interspersed with predictable demon attacks. I didn't really feel a connection to the characters and I started to skim a lot of the book. As is often the case, especially with the last two trilogies, after a two and a half book buildup, the ending was anticlimactic. I still think Three Sisters Island was her best trilogy with a supernatural thread and I kind of feel like the trilogies in general need a reboot--they don't feel ...more

Third and last book in the Sign of Seven trilogy by Nora Roberts. And possibly my favorite of the three. It's a tough call between this one and Blood Brothers. I think maybe I liked the romance in book 1 a little bit more (it's a little sweeter), and the overall plot progression of this one (book 3) more. So yeah, it's a bit of a toss-up to which I liked best.

The Pagan Stone continues/ends the tale of Hawkins Hollow, which has been plagued for twenty-years by a nasty evil demon who comes out and

Nora Roberts never seems to disappoint! In the stunning conclusion of her Sign of Seven Trilogy, Gage and Cybil struggle to keep from being coupled up, even though it's completely obvious that Fate (a.k.a. Nora Roberts) intends for them to fall in love and live happily ever after. The six friends also have to come up with a way to defeat the demon known as Twisse and save Hawkins Hollow from his evil machinations. The eventual climactic fight was suspenseful and well-plotted, and Roberts did not ...more

Tenho aguardado ansiosamente por Pedra Pagã, o último livro da trilogia Signo dos Sete…e valeu bem o tempo de espera!

Durante a maior parte do tempo, o nosso já bem conhecido conjunto de heróis concentra mente e músculos na derrota do inimigo, mas sobra ainda muito espaço para o tempestuoso romance entre Cybil e Gage.

Ambos de carácter fortemente vincado, Cyb e Gage sabem bem o que querem e envolverem-se um com o outro não consta na lista! Gage não se quer comprometer de forma alguma, gosta de man

OK, I'm just going to write my review of the whole trilogy here. And I'm not entirely sure if it's a review of this particular trilogy or a review of Nora Roberts in recent years. So, just hang in there.

I have been reading Nora Roberts for about 10 years now. I'm pretty sure that I've read most (if not all) of what she's written. Therefore, I think it's safe to say that she now officially SUCKS! Now, I understand, when an author is as prolific as Roberts is, you're going to get a bit stale. It's

I loved this book! The perfect conclusion in this trilogy! I knew Gage would be my favorite and I wasn’t wrong! It’s time for our favorite characters to put an end to the evil that threatens not only their lives but the lives of the people who live in this town. It’s not easy and it’s going to be worse before it gets better!

Our last couple is very different than the previous two. Both of them need freedom of choi

"I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat". This quote, by Winston Churchill, is the first thing that grabbed my attention to this novel. Nora Roberts used this quote, that was said in the middle of a speech by Churchill in the times of the war between the British and the Nazis, to convey the tough and vicious hardships and danger that we're about to explore.

After the disappointment that was Layla in the second book, this one was already an wasn't based around her.

This was the final book of the trilogy, based around the relationship between Gage and Cybil and the conclusion to the series.

These two were both strong, fun characters that you couldn't fail to adore. Gage, although the brooding damaged hero, was also sharp and funny. Cybil was strong, clever and entertaining, the two together were a formidable couple.

Mais uma trilogia que chegou ao fim e novamente vem aquela sensação de vazio que me aparece sempre que termino de ler um livro que adoro! Queria mais, muito mais… O livro acabou de uma forma tão perfeita que queria acompanhar as vidas dos três casais até que já fossem velhinhos e estivessem acompanhados dos seus filhos e netos. Nora Roberts tem este efeito em mim, são raros os livros da autora que me deixam desgostosa. Ela tem uma maneira de escrever muito

Three boys who shared their birthday, Caleb, Fox, and Gage, decided to celebrate their tenth birthday at the Pagan Stone, a strange, altar-like stone in the middle of the woods surrounding Hawkins Hollow, the village where the three grew up.

A simple vow to always be friends sealed with their blood, unleashed an entity that‘s been haunting them ever since.

Every seven years, for seven days in the seventh month, the small town of Hawkins Hollow descends into madness. Strange accidents happen; neigh

I love happy endings! I really enjoyed this trilogy. This was my first Nora Roberts read and I am glad I gave her books a try. I am giving this a 4 star because it made me laugh out loud when the guys were teasing each other or when the whole group was teasing each other, there were parts that were very funny.

The first book in this trilogy focused on Caleb and Quinn and the second book focused on Fox and Layla with each book getting closer to destroying the evil that reaked habit over the town H
I read this book because I came to work one day and mentioned I had forgotten to bring my book for lunch and my co-worker gave me this one to read as she had just finished it. That explains why I did not read books 1 and 2 of this trilogy. That DOESN'T explain why I won't read books 1 and 2 of this trilogy.

I had never read a Nora Roberts book before. Maybe this wasn't the one to start with. I have barely heard of her. I'm not a romance reader and I think that's her main genre.

I was fairly amused

E finalmente chegamos ao fim desta trilogia.
Posso já afirmar que foi a pior trilogia de Nora Roberts que li. Não gostei do início, não gostei do meio e não gostei do fim.
Achei o demónio muito mal caracterizado, sempre com os mesmos truques - nada original. Mas o que menos gostei foi mesmo as relações amorosas destes três casais. Primeiro, acho que a escritora fez mal em juntá-los logo no primeiro livro tal como disse na altura (Opinião Irmãos de Sangue).
Segundo, e agora mais em relação
I am writing one review for all three books in the Sign of Seven Trilogy. The other two books can be found here: Blood Brothers and The Hollow. I knew the entire time I was reading this trilogy that Nora Roberts was the author but I couldn’t help but be reminded of Stephen King while reading. Of course, this is Nora Roberts so we aren’t going to get the horror that we do from a King book but we did get a similar formula that I love from his books. Small town setting, lifelong friends and of cour ...more

The conclusion of Nora Roberts' Sign of Seven trilogy, The Pagan Stone, was about what I expected: the remaining couple of the feature characters, Gage and Cybil, wind up pairing off while they deal with their respective bits of familial angst. Cal and Quinn and Fox and Layla get to radiate soon-to-be-wedded bliss. The showdown with the Big Bad comes. Things go splody, and it's not really much of a spoiler for me to conclude that our six demon fighters do prevail. This is, after all, a Nora Robe ...more
So yes, I did like the couple as much as I remembered, but I'd forgotten the magical circle of everyone gets pregnant, which blergh. Gage and Cybil deserved better, when there really hadn't been any indication throughout the series that they wanted that kind of life. (And yes, they're going to keep their lives, only with a kid, but still.) But yeah! Definitely one of the good paranormal series. Terrible demon rape and all.

Wow, what can I say? I must be over Nora Roberts. Once again the love story fell completely flat. Gage, "We will end up in bed together". Cybil, "Yes, we will have sex, but not now and on my terms." Then a really stupid fight over how he doesn't want to fall in love with her just because both sets of their friends fell in love with each other and are planning to marry...then, blah, blah, blah.

The story about the demon could have been interesting except for all the dumb (supposed to be) sexual t

I absolutely loved the first two books and was anxiously awaiting to read the final book of this trilogy. I will preface by saying that I love Nora Roberts and everything that she writes. I inhaled the first two books; I read them in a day. I waited six long months for the release of the third book - The Pagan Stone. With that being said, I hate to say this, but I was a little disappointed. I can't put my finger on one particular thing, but this book didn't grab me like Blood Brothers and The Ho ...more

If you've read NR's other paranormal trilogies and liked them enough to think "I'd like to find books similar to this" then you'll enjoy this trilogy. It's very very similar because quite a bit of the paranormal elements are recycled from one trilogy to the next.

Full Review:
Very enjoyable end to the trilogy. The final pairing, some promise of new life, some death. The tough fight and need for sacrifice to defeat the evil. Of course it all turns out well. A satisyfing read.

An enjoyable end to a trilogy that I didn't think I would enjoy. I think it did end suddenly. But that is fine. I did have a tough time with a character named Fox. Kept making me feel like the X-Files.

I have read many of Nora Roberts's books but The Sign of Seven Trilogy is not like any of the others. "Pagan Stone" is book 3 in the trilogy. A demon terrorizes the town of Hidden Hollow after 3 young boys born on the same day pledge a blood pact at the Pagan Stone and unleash the demon. The demon returns every 7 years to cause havoc. 3 young women with unusual "powers" and with ancestry relations come to town and assist the young men in sending the demon back to hell.

So, there really isn't a point in my reviewing this book, just read Marianne's and it will tell you EXACTLY what I thought:

"I really really enjoyes this book. I want to say it was my favorite of all three but I don't really remember the other two very well. I know that I was less confused in terms of the characters in this book then I was the second. I LOVED Cybil and Gages relationship and how they great into a couple. It wasn't sappy, cheesy romance. It just was. The ending was a bit too clean

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
