Blood Magick (Cousins O'Dwyer Trilogy #3) by Nora Roberts

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes the final novel in a trilogy about the land we’re drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love…

Book Three of The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy
Blood Magick

County Mayo is rich in the traditions of Ireland, legends that Branna O’Dwyer fully embraces in her life and in her work as the proprietor of The Dark Witch shop, which carries soaps, lotions, and candles for tourists, made with Branna’s special touch.

Branna’s strength and selflessness hold together a close circle of friends and family—along with their horses and hawks and her beloved hound. But there’s a single missing link in the chain of her life: love…

She had it once—for a moment—with Finbar Burke, but a shared future is forbidden by history and blood. Which is why Fin has spent his life traveling the world to fill the abyss left in him by Branna, focusing on work rather than passion.

Branna and Fin’s relationship offers them both comfort and torment. And though they succumb to the heat between them, there can be no promises for tomorrow. A storm of shadows threatens everything that their circle holds dear. It will be Fin’s power, loyalty, and heart that will make all the difference in an age-old battle between the bonds that hold their friends together and the evil that has haunted their families for centuries.

Blood Magick by Nora Roberts is the 3rd and final book in her Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy. I couldn’t wait to start this book, as I knew it would be up to Branna and Fin to have their story, and once again, Nora completes this trilogy so well. I love all of Nora’s books that take place in Ireland, as well as those that deal with witchcraft. Nora is one of the best that creates such wonderful characters, especially in her trilogies. We loved Iona and Boyle in book 1; adored Connor and Meara in book 2; but we couldn’t wait for Branna and Fin. In the last two books, during their face to face battle with the sorcerer, Cabhan, they hurt him and were close to destroying him. But he was able to escape and spend time to heal himself, before he would come back after them. The three witches, Branna, Connor and Iona are supplemented by Fin, who is also a witch. In the end, it will take a few changes to increase the attack for a chance to finally win. Branna and Fin have loved each other since they were teenagers, but after she discovered that Fin had the mark of Cabhan, she pushed herself away. The evil curse of Cabhan has been around for 100 years. As they got older, they remained friends, as Fin was close to the other 4. But Fin has spent years searching for a way to remove his mark and the curse put on by original witch murdered by Cabhan (Scorcha) to anyone with sorcerer’s blood. Branna has always trusted Fin, and knows that Fin will play an important part in the final battle against Cabhan, who is now getting stronger, with another source of evil driving him. Branna is the strongest one, confident, powerful, determined, loving; as she makes potions, spells and plans to be ready for the next battle against Cabhain. With all this going on; all 6 of them (their circle) work together, with the animals (a hawk, hound and horse) helping each other to support and do whatever is necessary to win this fight, even with the danger they could lose lives. It was great to spend time with them all, as Nora allows us to feel like we are part of them. Nora always gives us details about Ireland, past and present; not to mention all the wonderful food dishes that Branna mostly makes for the meetings they all have. Everything is done so well. I loved every moment. Most of all, this was a special romance between Branna and Fin. One that was doomed and looked hopeless, with both of them suffering all those years. Branna finally follows through on her feelings, especially with all the pressure building of the upcoming battle, she allows herself to succumb to Fin. It was done so beautifully, and I loved their love finally coming together. However, Fin still had the mark, and once the battle was over, would they still stay together? I do not want to spoil what happens for those who will read the book. I will say it was an exciting climax, and a satisfying ending that Nora usually does. This was a wonderful trilogy filled with romance, three great couples, magic, fantasy, witches, animals, time travel, bad villain, and Ireland. I strongly suggest you read the Cousin’s O’Dwyer to have yourself a fun, romantic and exciting read.

I was really disappointed in this, I really just felt like I read the three sister island novels all over again. I did read all 3 books, but its almost identical other than the names, location, and reasons. This one the island isn't going to topple into the sea, but still yet. Has Roberts written so many books she has to resort to older plots.? I typically praise Roberts books, and have been an avid fan for about 10 years now, but I'm just seriously disappointed in these books. They probably will not be read again by me, ever.

Disappointed. I loved the first two books in this trilogy, so I couldn't wait to read the ending. I was very disappointed though, the book starts off slow then moves to the obvious (Fin and Branna admitting their love for each other). I had 40 pages left and I was thinking "can this really end in 40 pages? There's still so much to do (besides the constant cooking, worrying and plotting from Branna), there's no final fight planned and an epic battle to be had. Well, I was mistaken, it abruptly ended 16 pages later (the remaining pages were the introduction to The Collector).  There was no detailed epic battle. Just a rush of a fight where three and three and three join momentarily to kill the demon. Then it ends with Branna and Fin, again for the second time, proclaiming their love for each other and their plan to build a life together.  So disappointed it was so lacking! Unlike the Circle trilogy, I felt no real connection to any of the characters and no suspense for the finale.

A fairly satisfying ending to this story, but it leaves a lot of questions at the end. I was expecting more character follow ups after the climactic final battle and the ending felt a little rushed and incomplete. Makes me think that she is [hopefully] writing more books with these characters, but if this was the plan why were these books marketed as a trilogy?

If she wants to write poetry go for it. But the constant spells and agonizing was tedious. I love the Eve Dallas series but find the romances to be hit or miss. This pne unfortunately missed

Don't waste your money or your time on this book if you've read any of her other trilogies that have a paranormal theme. This is just a copy in which the names and locale have changed.

I read the whole trilogy, excited to read this last book. It was good, but where is the Epilogue?! When you read a whole series, I am interested in what happens AFTER they conquer the Evil. I read Most of Nora Roberts books, and I have read ALL of the J.D. Robb series and I feel as if she is maybe rushing her books?!?!

I was hoping to like this book as I loved the 1st 2 in the series. Not so much.Kind of boring and not as well written as her other books. She is my favorite author but like the other reviewers stated, seems like she is recycling her other books.

Most of her new books have the same plot as the older ones, but with minor changes. That being said, I haven't been reading much of her new work, but I really felt this series haddthe potential to be different. Honestly, this could have been so much more than what it was. This series had the potential to be mind blowing, but instead she did the same old thing. I'm really disappointed.

While the ending of this trilogy was fitting, I felt a bit let down that it was so short and hurried. The last chapter felt very rushed as if the author was just ready to get it done. I would have liked a bit more suspense. Stephanie Clanahan

This book was everything I expected it to be and more. The only problem I had with this book is I wanted to read it faster so the battle between the cousins and the evil that haunted them to happen so I could see who would win. It was nice to see all the cousins working together and each of them becoming stronger as well as their partners. I liked how we got to see more of the cousins from a previous time. For me the who witch theme added to the story. The descriptions were so good you could feel the fog creeping in, feel the fire burn and see the beautiful landscapes as they were our riding and hawking. I felt like the romance was a good part of the story but it did not take over the story which I liked. The ending was satisfying for me and had me holding my breath for awhile. This is the third book in this trilogy and I suggest you read all the books in order.
