This week, Blood Magick
, the third and final book in Nora Roberts’ captivating #1 New York Times
bestselling Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy,
was published. Roberts captures the rich heritage of her beloved Ireland in a contemporary trilogy about family, ancestry, and magic, when three cousins must fight a battle that was started centuries ago.
In Blood Magick
, Roberts brings an end to the contemporary story of three cousins with a special bloodline that gives them the ability to wield magic as witches. In Dark Witch,
Iona Sheehan moves to County Mayo, Ireland and connects with her relatives, Connor and Branna O’Dwyer, and begins her study in magick. An epic battle seven hundred years in the making has already begun with the evil sorcerer Cabhan, and it is up to the O’Dwyers to fight. In book two, Shadow Spell,
readers learn Connor O’Dwyer’s story, a falconer whose heart had flown its own course, until he finds love.
The O’Dwyer’s journey ends in book three with Branna’s personal story, and her complicated romance and love for Finbar Burke, because he shares a bloodline with the sorcerer the O’Dwyers are battling. Blood Magick
delivers all the hallmarks that readers have come to associate with a Nora Roberts novel—family dynamics, close friendships, snappy and humorous dialogue, a rich sense of place, and a heartwarming story where love conquers all.
