Description~ In the town of Hawkins Hollow, it’s called the Seven. Every seven years, on the seventh day of the seventh month, madness descends on this small town. But three men bound by blood and three women bound by ancestry to a demon have pledged their souls—and their hearts—to stop it.
First off I gotta say Ive lived under a rock and haven’t read ANY of Nora Roberts books except the Bride Quartet. I didn’t even know she wrote Paranormal-ish stuff! Lol So when my friend told me about a few trilogies of hers I had to see what it was all about.
I have to say that I pick a good place to start! These books not only had romance but they gave me the hebbie jebbies! Lol
The story begins with three very different boys that have been growing up together all their lives. The 3 best friends all were born on the same day so it was a given they would ring in their 10th b-day together! They decided to do that at a spookiest place in town, the Pagan Stone. It was rumored that evil things lie at the stone so the boys wanted to get their big boy pants on and face the music together! ;o) As the night goes on the boys make a decision to become blood brothers. This involves cutting their hands and mixing their blood. When this happens they released a fearsome evil that ends up haunting the town and its residents every 7th month or the seventh year for an entire 7 days! Suicide, rape and murder is nothing new within the 7 that occurs and the once boys, now men meet every year to help protect the town from evil. Year’s later three very different women end up in the town and find themselves in the mix. They cant help but wonder if it’s a coincidence or just fate that led them to this haunted place, but all they know is that they must help this town…or the men they love (and possibly themselves) will cease to exist.
Like I said this was such a great little trilogy. The romance was sport on and steamy, the writing was superb, and the little jackass of a demon that ran around town made me pee my pants! Lol I loved that the boys and the girls all came from different places in their lives and yet seemed to mix well by the end. This book isn’t just about good verses evil, its also about relationships and friendships! Warms the heart! :o)
I ate this trilogy up in a few short days...you should too!
I give this book a total of...
