So far so good? Just received it and not but halfway through yet. Nora Roberts' trilogies are always entertaining though , and I'm sure this one will not prove me wrong.

Supernatural Romance with Style
Ripley Todd, the main character in this second book of the island trilogy, is a tough cookie and trying to cope with a gift she can't seem to control. She is human but also has power as a witch and wants to deny it.
Denying it does not become an option and a paranormal professor makes all the difference in her new attitude toward Mia her former friend and sister. Ripley finds out she can't run away from yourself and your destiny without a price.
This is a great read but read book one first and you will enjoy it more."Dance in the Air."
The three books by Nora Roberts are staying in my library so I can visit Three Sister's Island any time I want to.

Very good book
This book is a wonderful book. As a matter of fact so is the other two book in this trilogy. If you want a good book to read anytime Roberts' book should be it. This book is different not your usually boy meets girl love story but boy meets witch love story who doesn't want to be a witch or accept who and what she is.

Roberts at her best!
I've read the 3 books in the trilogy, and I absolutely love this one because I can so relate to Ripley. Nora Roberts is a wonderful romance author and she spares no detail. I actually stayed up till 1am on a workday to finish this book!
Publishers Weekly, 2001-11-26 Roberts (Dance Upon the Air) popularized the romance trilogy, and here she offers up the second installment of her newest trilogy, a conventional saga about three witches who must right the wrongs of their ancestors in order to save their homeland, Three Sisters Island. Ceremonial candles, iris petals and a sprig of rosemary set the scene for magic and romance, but it will take more than mood lighting and witchcraft to lend an air of amiability to the novel's heroine. Hard-edged Ripley Todd is one of the island's two police officers the other being her brother as well as a temperamental witch in denial of her powers. When paranormal researcher Dr. Mac Booke visits the island, Ripley greets him with her customary hostility ("I didn't know they gave out degrees for the study of crapola"). Nevertheless, Mac, a self-proclaimed "rich geek" with a Jimmy Stewart-like affability and an athlete's physique, pursues Ripley romantically and professionally. A brief, overly dramatic encounter between Ripley and a possessed, blood-thirsty reporter adds a touch of suspense, but the novel's finale is hardly deserving of all the buildup it receives. Although Roberts is not in top form here, her deft use of metaphor and charismatic hero are sufficient to hold even the most reluctant reader. (Dec.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
