Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Nearly 21 years ago, on the seventh day of the seventh month, three young boys swore a blood oath on top of the Pagan Stone in the woods near Hawkins Hollow and unwittingly unleashed an imprisoned demon that returns to wreak increasingly deadly havoc on the town every seven years. With the evil assault beginning once more, the time has come to end the carnage. Now, the three who started it all, linked by fate to a trio of exceptional women, are determined to defeat the demon once and for all. Each couple, sharing similar mental gifts, has had a part to play in the "Sign of Seven" trilogy (see also Blood Brothers; The Hollow), but in this final installment, it's up to gambler Gage Turner and free-spirited Cybil Kinski, who have the gift of precognition, to administer the death blow, even though it means someone else must die. Blood, fire, brutal violation, and possession are tempered by strength, self-sacrifice, and love in this chilling, passionate romance. It is reminiscent of Roberts's "Three Sisters Island" trilogy but more intensely evil and violent. Roberts does a good job of bringing readers up to speed and tying up loose ends, but readers will benefit from experiencing the stories in order. Roberts lives in Keedysville, MD.

I read the reviews of those of you who have read the book before and went in cautiously. There are three things that I would like to mention: 1. the book alludes to the fact that the ending will be short, how can you have a long ending when someone will sacrifice himself? 2. There has been six months since most of us have read the second installment and one year since the first - I actually found her repetition helpful in both recapping and showing how the characters having progressed in their thinking and findings. 3. I found only one grammatical mistake. The incomplete sentences are her way of writing dialogue because this is how people normally talk. I just love the way Roberts has fun with her characters and the characters have fun with each other. I was not disappointed in the least. I just wish I didn't have to wait so long between books.

Despite most reviews I have read this was an amazing ending to yet another trilogy by our beloved NR. The answers she gave to the questions from the first two were just what we needed for this ending !! There were far too few unanswered questions to even let that come into play here . It would be wonderful in the future for there to be more novels with these characters as I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking this well , are some of her best ! Hts of to NR yet again !!

I have read all three in this series and the books got progressively more predicitable and mundane. Enjoyed the first but almost abandoned the books entirely by the Pagan Stone. The only reason I finished it is because I had already invested time in the series. Now, a month after finishing the book, I can not remember how the resolution of the book came about. A truely forgettable read.

This was third and maybe final installment of the Seven Series. Truth be told I think she ran out of ideas towards the middle. The last half of the book seemed rushed, somewhat predictable and boring. I was disappointed. Not up to her usual standards.

This is the first Nora Roberts book that I've read. I found it lacking in every way. I am an avid reader & I barely got through this book! I have friends that are big Nora Roberts fans. They were disappointed in this book also. Unfortunately I bought a couple of other books by this author but I'm reluctant to read them. I certainly hope they are better.

I read the entire trilogy back-to-back(to-back, I guess). I always do this- save the books until the story is complete. It keeps it fresh in my mind.
Anyway, this was my favorite book of the Trilogy (I liked them all, but this was my favorite). I laughed at times, I even cried twice!

I will say, I, too, was disappointed with the epilogue. I was hoping for a fast forward of at least 9 months!!!

The Pagan Stone is Nora Robert's third installation of her Sign of 7 trilogy. It's Cybil and Gage's story and it does a wonderful job of tying the other two to it. It's fast and furious with the ultimate in good versus evil with just enough paranormal to keep those fans happy and just enough love story to keep her romance fans elated.

"The Pagan Stone" is a fitting, if a tad disappointing, ending to Nora Robert's Sign of Seven trilogy. The bad guy is vanquished, the last of the three couples unites in a very heated, very sexy relationship, and life in Hawkins Hollow returns to (mostly) normal.

Cybil is the nomadic free spirit of the three women who eerily converged on Hawkins Hollow just in time for the lead up to the horrors that occur there every seven years. Gage is the nomadic professional gambler who is the third of the three Hawkins Hollow boys who have been destined since the minute of their birth (at the exact same time by the way) to send the demon known as Twisse back to hell. All portents show that THIS iteration of the seven-year curse will be the final one--either Twisse will take corporal form and destroy everything and everyone, or he will be defeated and banished.

In the first two books of the series, the first two couples respectively, faced challenges and found their strengths for the upcoming battle. In this last book, all three couples must band together to figure out how to use the weapons they have found to defeat Twisse...hopefully without anyone having to die!

Fantastic build-up, but the final battle was just a bit too short for me. Then, a four page epilogue and the book ends. Bummer. But I guess that's one of the signs of a good book, when you want it to keep going and want to know more about the continuing lives of the protagonists. In that case, the book delivers 100 percent.

Nora Roberts is the best. Always traveling I can't always find the books I want in english . But this was worth the wait. I went crazy with nook books and she was the first writer I searched. I started out reading romances years ago and Nora was one of the first I liked. She writes under other names also. But which ever one she uses you know you are going to love anything she writes.

Usually like NR. Fail on this trilogy. I can typically see the scene she describes in my head but this time all three books were poorly written, in my opinion. She could have saved herself the trouble and me some money by writing one book and been done with it.

Fabulous read, could not put any of the books from this trilogy down! When I read the overview of the series, I was skeptical about the topic, but Nora did not let me down!

I absolutely fell in love with the characters and the story line. I was sorry to see the series come to its final end. I was also very shocked to see some of the awful reviews that this book has received. I know that any author is bound to write something that isn't up to their fans standards and to those that critique harshly but this book was very well written and done in the same style as the first two and done well in my opinion. Nora Roberts personally is not one of my favorite authors but she does put some great work out there and The Sign Of Seven series was one of those.
