This was book #60 for the year for me and the book that had me hit my goal for the year! Yay!!! Yes, another Nora Roberts book. This is a trilogy that has been recommended to me multiple times. My mom had all of the books and gave them to me a few months ago. Since I was finally getting back into reading, I figured I’d give it a shot. I’m glad I did. I’m already half way through the second! Here’s the Goodreads summary:
“The pleasure of your company is desired for cocktails and conversation. 8 pm, 4th September. Warrior’s Peak.
When Malory Price is issued with the above invitation she is naturally suspicious, especially as Warrior’s Peak is a local mansion straight out of a Hollywood movie. But with her overdraft at crisis limit and on the verge of losing her job at a local art gallery, she has little to lose by attending the event.
Only Malory is about to get more than she bargained for. At Warrior’s Peak she finds that she and two other women are the only guests of their mysterious hosts. They are told an amazing story of magic, gods and goddesses; and of three demi-goddesses who have been cast into an eternal sleep, their mortal souls placed under lock and key. And in every generation, three women are born who alone have the power to free them – if they are prepared to accept the challenge.
Three women. Three keys to find. If one fails, they all lose. If they succeed – money, power and a new destiny awaits. It will take more than intellect, more than determination. They will have to open their hearts, their minds, and believe that everything is possible.”
This is a different kind of Nora Roberts book than I’m used to reading. I definitely enjoyed it, but I also liked that it wasn’t a typical romance. I liked the mystery behind this story. I’m also looking forward to reading the other two books in this trilogy.
The premise behind the story pulled me in and I’m interested in seeing where Roberts goes with it with the other two lead females.
