#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents the electrifying conclusion to her powerful Circle Trilogy. Worlds have collided and centuries have elapsed as six people have brought their unique powers, their courage, and their hearts to a battle that could drown humanity in darkness…
Her face, so pale when she’d removed her cloak, had bloomed when her hand had taken the sword. Her eyes, so heavy, so somber, had gone as brilliant as the blade. And had simply sliced through him, keen as a sword, when they’d met his…    
In the kingdom of Geall, the scholarly Moira has taken up the sword of her people. Now, as queen, she must prepare her subjects for the greatest battle they will ever fight—against an enemy more vicious than any they have seen. For Lilith, the most powerful vampire in the world, has followed the circle of six through time to Geall.
Moira also has a personal score to settle. Vampires killed her mother—and now, she is ready to exact her revenge. But there is one vampire to whom she would trust her soul…
Cian was changed by Lilith centuries ago. But now, he stands with the circle. Without hesitation, he will kill others of his kind—and has earned the respect of sorcerer, witch, warrior, and shape-shifter. But he wants more than respect from Moira—even though his desire for her makes him vulnerable. For how can a man with an eternity to live love a woman whose life is sure to end—if not by Lilith’s hand, then by the curse of time?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“America’s favorite writer.”—The New Yorker

“Completing her series with the real-world complications of selfless, star-crossed love, Roberts has crafted a fantasy-romance trilogy with strong appeal for romance fans of all stripes.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“The final, explosive chapter in Roberts' new trilogy brings to fruition the ultimate battle that has been destined from the start. Let's hope this powerful, romantic and deeply emotional book is only the start of Roberts' leap into the paranormal genre.”—RT Book Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Roberts's paranormal Circle Trilogy concludes with the "circle of six" warriors the sorcerer Hoyt, Hoyt's vampire brother Cian, the witch Glenna, the warrior Blair, the shape-shifter Larkin and Larkin's scholar-princess cousin Moira preparing for battle against the evil vampire, Lilith. Having traveled back through time to Moira and Larkin's ancient kingdom of Geall, Moira raises the sword from the stone to take her place as queen. With her five warrior companions by her side, Moira leads her people into battle against Lilith's army of vampires, who are intent on destroying Geall. Meanwhile, Moira and Cian give in to powerful feelings of love, stealing nights of passion that could spell ruin for both of them. As war befalls the kingdom, Roberts brings the same precise, resonant energy to battle scenes that make her sexual interludes shine, grounding magic, dragons and vampires in a believable world. The truest moments of this novel, however, belong to Roberts's fully formed characters, especially in the love sacrifices of Moira and Cian. Completing her series with the real-world complications of selfless, star-crossed love, Roberts has crafted a fantasy-romance trilogy with strong appeal for romance fans of all stripes. (Nov.)

I am an avid Nora Roberts fan. I own many of her books, and most of her trilogy books. I tend to like the last book in her trilogies the least. However, Vally of Silence is my favorite of the Circle Trilogy and of any trilogy. I could read it over and over. I read the first two books, just building up anticipation to read the third. This is one trilogy you cannot miss.

This book is the third in a trilogy and it is helpful to read the other two books first. In the series this is the best of the three however. It is romantic, exciting, and a little scary.

Being more of a sci-fi, fantasy girl, i was a little nervous to read Nora Roberts. It was worth the risk! this trilogy now has a home on my shelf! though the characters are a bit stereotypical, i still loved it! just enough romance and drama to keep you reading.

I read a lot of Nora Roberts books. I am usually not one for big romance, smooshy, ewy gooey, love stories, so when I got this trilogy for my birthday, I was hoping there would be more to it. And there was! SO Much more!! I love the fantasy, almost sci-fi twist to her love stories. If you like Twilight, then you will love this trilogy! It must be something about the seduction of vampires that reels you in!

I always enjoy Nora Roberts. This was a little different venue for her, but as always excellent. I am taken in by her stories. Easy to get lost in what she writes.
greenmtngirl More than 1 year ago
WOW!! This would have to be one of the best books that I have read in a long time. I would recommend the Circle Trilogy to everyone. If you liked Twilight you will also like this trilogy. I had a very hard time putting this book down I had to make myself do it or I would have been up all night reading. I felt like I was in the book!! A must read!!

The whole trilogy was fantastic and this book was part of it. Read the whole trilogy, I was not able to get my eyes away from these books. Nora Roberts really transports you to another world of fantasy. There is romance, humor and suspense! I hope who reads these books enjoy them as much as I did.

the valley of silence was great by the end of the first book i felt i knew the characters personally and as always with her books something tastefully steamy happens as you reach the middle wow nora must have something great herself to be able to write like that or maybe she just dreams like the rest of us stuff any woman dreams about secretly

I have read several of her book and I think I am addicted to Nora Roberts books. Especially this series. I have to say I absolutely loved it. My favorite character was Cian. So cool and delicous. Now I am off to the next Trilogy of hers. I would most assuredly say a very good read.

I have read most of Nora's books. This is one of my favorite series so far. I also loved the Sign of seven series. Great!!! Couldn't put them down. Read until 2am most nights.

This one was my favorite in the trilogy. The ending was predictable but great.

A must read if you have read the other two books. Some meaning will be lost if you read them out of order. If you love Irish lore and the supernatural, this is the romance series for you.
Guest More than 1 year ago
this was definitely the best book of the three! i bawled at the end, very good. the first book of the series was ok, but the second book was horrible, wasn't going to read this one because of the second book but glad i stuck with it.

Thank you Nora for bring us this trilogy. I picked up the first because you wrote it. I picked up the other two because i could not get enough of them. I truely enjoyed the whole storyline and the individual characters. I love all of your books, but this trilogy is by far one of my favorites. You always have an eye for the irish, fey, and romantic. I have been reading quite a bit of the fantasy genre lately. (dragons, vampires, fairies, shapeshifters, magic) Some of my favorite books have one or more of these characters. But you have brought them all together with the added bonus of your great epic romances. If I want romance and a feel of my irish old world roots then I pick up one of your books. You are my favorite all time author and will always be. You have brought romance into my heart and soul, where the world has tried hard to tear it out. Blessings on you and yours A fan for eternity, Brandi

The Goddess Morrigan tasked the sorcerer with traveling through space and time to gather together the people who would fight for the life of humanity. Hoyt gathered Cian the vampire, the shifter Larkin, Blair the demon hunter, Glena the witch, and Moira the Scholar princess. Through the dance of the gods they travel to Moira¿s homeworld of Geall, a medieval like pastoral place that has never known war to make humanity¿s last stand against Lilith, the vampire queen. If the circle of six and the people of Geall lose, all humanity in all the worlds will be destroyed.--------- The final battle will take place in the Valley of Silence and Moira, who pulled the sword out of the stone that rests upon a fairy mound, is now the queen whom will lead her people. Cian, who was turned against his will by Lilith, sides with the humans even though most fear him. Moira sees him for what he is and loves what she sees so when she goes to Cian he is helpless to fight his feelings as well as hers. Both know that there is no future in their relationship but for a little while, both will know a love so powerful that it is beautiful to behold. As the battle looms, the circle of six uses innovative battle methods since the vampire horde out numbers them four to one.--------------- This concludes The Circle Trilogy and it is by far the best series Nora Roberts has ever written as the author addresses the themes of free will, good vs. evil and the power of love to sustain and strengthen people so they make ethical choices. The tale concentrates on the characters of Cian and Moira, two star-crossed lovers who find solace in each others arms for the present. She is a magnificent warrior queen in the tradition of Boudica and he is the dark gothic hero who puts his lover¿s needs before his own. VALLEY OF SILENCE is a fantastic work of romantic dark fantasy.---------------- Harriet Klausner

"Valley of Silence" is the thrilling end to yet another, great serise by Nora Roberts. The story, wraps up the thrilling ride that 6, diffrent people, strangers to each other but sum not. The dark battle that could or could not save the world from darkness. The heartbreaking, before beautiful end. It is a story that makes you wish you lived in this world and faught along side the heros.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book because it was a fast paced, adrenaline filled adventure. The tone of the plot likened itself more to the first book in this series and kept me engaged until the end!

I have never read a book by Nora Robert's that I didn't like. This trilogy had so much character, without overdoing it with the lovey dovey stuff, but her books are never that way. TOTALLY RECOMMENDED!
