Dance of Gods and Valley of Silence by Nora Roberts

I'm going to do something different than usual and review two books at once since they are the last two parts of the Circle trilogy. I didn't read these back to back either (I read Moon Called in between these).
Dance Of Gods is the 2nd book and begins Blair and Larkin's story. The chosen six are preparing to go to Geall where the final battle against Lillith will take place. I enjoyed this book much more than the 1st which is why I picked up the last one so soon after.
Valley Of Silence finds the six preparing for the final battle. It is kinda hard to give a synopsis when so much of each book depends on the previous one. The last two books were the strongest of the trilogy. I just don't remember liking the 1st book as much as these two. And I'm usually a huge fan of Robert's trilogies. The Key trilogy was one of my all-time favorites and I've read it twice. I felt like this one was good but could have been better. The ending was bit weak in my opinion...I wanted a little bit more and didn't get it. That being said I still really enjoyed this series but not as much as others by this author. Moira and Cian were my favorite to read about but their story needed a little bit better of an ending. Oh well, these were fun reads for me and now I'm looking forward to reading Blood Brothers by Nora Roberts (I can't that a trilogy too?).
My Rating for both books: 4 out of 5


  1. I havent read these before, I do like Nora Roberts. Some of her books i've been dissapointed with, but others were really good.
    I think Blood Brothers might be a trilogy but I'm not sure.
    great review :)

  2. If Blood Brothers is a trilogy then I'll probably wait until all of the books are out. I hate waiting to read a book that is part of a series...too impatient :)

  3. I definitely thought the last book was the best of the trilogy. And I also agree with you that this trilogy as a whole seemed weaker than some of her earlier ones. The Key Trilogy was great but I also love the "Three Sisters Trilogy," although I always get those two confused. =)

  4. J.S. Peyton- I LOVED the 3 Sisters trilogy as well. In fact, I think it is because I loved these other two trilogies so much that I thought that the Circle trilogy wasn't as good. Oh well...


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
