Raised in a family of demon hunters, Blair Murphy has her own personal demons to fight - the father who trained, then abandoned her, and the fianc who walked out on her after learning what she is. Now she finds herself training a sorcerer from 12th century Ireland, a witch from modern day New York, a scholar, and a shape-shifter from the mythical land of Gaell, while trying to keep herself from staking the sixth of their circle: a vampire sired by Lilith, the vampire queen they've been charged with defeating on Samhain. No stranger to a good fight, Blair finds she has met her match it comes to that handsome and flirtatious Geallian, Larkin. And a couple of run-ins with one of Lilith's loyal followers gives Blair more than she reckoned for, mentally and physically. But will she be able to stay alive long enough to defeat Lilith's army? Or will she find herself falling for the one thing she vowed never to give into again? Dance of the Gods is part of The Circle Trilogy, Nora Roberts' magical new series of paranormal romances. Six strangers - a sorcerer, a witch, a shape-shifter, scholar, warrior and vampire - find danger, friendship and the chance of love, as they unite in a battle against an ancient evil
One of the 3 books in the series. Helps to have an open mind or big imagination due to the nature of the story as it involves time travel, witches, vampires,hunters, flying dragons. Such a great read it is hard to set down but the series does need to read in the order they were written.
I highly recommend the book, and series.

Dance of the Gods in part 2 of a GREAT 3
Within days of finishing the first part of the Circle Trilogy, Morrigan's Cross, I ran to the store to get part 2. This triliogy has captured me from the very beginning. As I said before, Im not a big fan of vampire novels, but this book goes above and beyond the normal genre. Nora Roberts incorporates vampires, magic, mythology and modern day beliefs in 1 fantastic book. I highly recommend part 2 of this series to everyone. Nora Roberts fan or not!!
Publishers Weekly, 2006-08-28 Roberts's Circle Trilogy continues with this second installment (following Morrigan's Cross), in which the circle of six prepare for their battle against the powerful vampire Lilith and her undead army. The six members, culled by the goddess Morrigan from the past and the present, include the wizard Hoyt and his vampire brother Cian, the witch Glenna, ancient Geallian princess Moira and her shape-shifting cousin Larkin, and demon hunter Blair. Preparing for the showdown in modern-day Ireland, the group split their time among training, defending against Lilith's agents, bickering fitfully among themselves and, for some, doing their best to ignore mounting sexual tension. The relationship between the bigheaded, anachronistic Larkin and the hot-tempered, thoroughly modern lone-wolf Blair gives the proceedings a satisfying emotional core, especially rewarding when their anger turns finally to lust. Fulfilling their destiny, the six warriors enter the stone circle to travel backward in time to Geall for the fateful battle with Lilith. Roberts's latest is a testament to her skill and range, as this richly detailed fantasy only her second attempt at the genre hums with wit, humor and sizzling romance. Paranormal fans are assured a good time, as is anyone who enjoys captivating fiction. (Oct.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
