Blood Brothers - Sign of Seven Trilogy, Book 1

In the town of Hawkins Hollow, it's called The Seven. Every seven years, on the seventh day of the seventh month, strange things happen. It began when three young boys-Caleb, Fox, and Gage-went on a camping trip to The Pagan Stone. And twenty-one years later, it will end in a showdown between evil and the boys who have become men-and the women who love them.

Nora Roberts used to be the biggest thing in romance, but like all authors either the public burned out on her or her new ideas are rehash of the old ones. I still like her books, mostly because she's a good author and her books are very readable.

Blood Brothers is book 1 of a trilogy, sadly it reads very much like most of her other trilogies. What's worse is that we meet all 6 people in the first book and while the concept of an ancient evil haunting a small town is somewhat interesting, its not great.

I would say rent this series from the library. Its worth a read but definitely not a keeper.

Story/Plot: 3/5
Sensuality: 3/5
Characters: 2/5
Overall: 3/5
