Valley of Silence by Nora Roberts

Valley of Silence is the conclusion novel to Nora Roberts‘ Circle Trilogy. In this book the circle reaches the final showdown with Lilith the Vampire Queen and her army.

This book features the Love between the millennium years old vampire Cian and Moira soon to be the queen of  Geall. In this story Moira is proclaimed the rightful Queen of the kingdom by removal of the sword from the stone.Moira and Cian have been having feelings for each other since they first met in Morrigan’s Cross.  She’s intrigued by him, but he has done his best to intimidate and alienate her.They know that there’s no future together, in spite of that they decide to have their happiness in whatever little time they have.

Unlike the other couples of the other two books of the circle trilogy Cian and Moira have to make sacrifices on their part, for they are not a normal couple like Hoyt-Glenna and Larkin-Blair who are joined together by not only love but also their lives. But Cian and Moira cannot as 1 is the vampire and the other the queen.
Valley of Silence also focuses on the war that has been mentioned in the first two books, final battle involving the circle and the troops they were leading facing off against Lilith and her followers.

Valley of Silence focuses on a lot of things, the love between Cian and Moira, preparation of the war,courage, sacrifices for love and humanity, humor,the jest to live even at the time of pail. What i liked most was that Nora Roberts has shown that even monsters like Lilith are capable of love. All in all this book was the best in the series. While reading this book one gets so involved that the person actually feels the emotions of the characters.

Dance of the Gods by Nora Roberts

Dance of the Gods, is the second book in Nora RobertsCircle Trilogy. This story is the continuation of the circle of six commissioned by Morrigan to fight an army of vampires led by Lilith the vampire queen.

In this story we learn more about Larkin the Shapeshifter also cousin  to Moira soon to be the queen of  Geall and Blair the vampire hunter who is also related to Cian the millennium years old vampire.A romance blossoms between Larkin and Blair, she finds herself drawn to Larkin, the courageous, fun-loving guy who takes pleasure in the simple things in life.the circle of six travels through the stones to Geall, to complete their preparations for the upcoming battle. In Larkin’s world Blair will have to decide if she can take a chance on a love that that may not survive the coming battle.

Dance of the Gods starts in Ireland and ends in Geall, however it does not have a true ending,I think it continues into the third novel.However i felt that the first half of the book was a bit dry with very little of romance between the two. Well other than that it was an interesting book . It also made me eager to read the third book as soon as we put this one down, Because I want to see how the battle ends and how does the romance blossoms between the vampire Cian and the queen of Geall.
