Friday Memes: Island of Glass by Nora Roberts

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City ReaderThe Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

A man who couldn't die had little to fear. An immortal who'd lived most of his long life as a soldier, waging battle, didn't turn from a fight with a god. A soldier, though a loner by nature, understood the duty, and loyalty, to those who battled with him.
Friday 56:
"I was cursed. It wasn't a gift."

"I'm sorry." Sympathy and briskness mixed in her tone. "I'm sorry for what happened to your brother, and to you. But putting the emotion of it aside, that aspect of your, the curse of immortality is part of the whole. Every one of us brings something special to the table, and together it makes the meal."
This week I am featuring a book that got lost on my TBR mountain. Island of Glass by Nora Roberts is the third in her Guardians trilogy. Here is the description from Amazon:
The final Guardians Trilogy novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Bay of Sighsand Stars of Fortune.

As the hunt for the Star of Ice leads the six guardians to Ireland, Doyle, the immortal, must face his tragic past. Three centuries ago, he closed off his heart, yet his warrior spirit is still drawn to the wild. And there’s no one more familiar with the wild than Riley—and the wolf within her...

An archaeologist, Riley is no stranger to the coast of Clare, but now she finds herself on unsure footing, targeted by the dark goddess who wants more than the stars, more than the blood of the guardians. While searching through Irish history for clues that will lead them to the final star and the mysterious Island of Glass, Riley must fight her practical nature and admit her sudden attraction to Doyle is more than just a fling. For it is his strength that will sustain her and give her the power to run towards love—and save them all...


  1. Sounds like a great story! I added you to the Linky. Happy Memorial day weekend!

  2. I really enjoyed this series! The first book was my favorite, but not by much; the other two were a lot of fun as well. (Though I think Nora Roberts' Circle Trilogy is better.)

  3. Hope you enjoy the conclusion to the trilogy.

  4. New to me series. Thanks for the review.
