I *LOVED* this book! Nora Roberts is the queen of trilogies, and BLOOD BROTHERS is the start of another winning romantic paranormal trilogy.

Cal, Fox, and Gage were only ten when they unleashed the demonic power trapped beneath the Pagan Stone. Every seven years, for seven days, a horrible and deadly power is unleashed in Hawkins Hollow. People commit horrible acts, and then can't remember doing any of it.

For these three men, it's been twenty-one years since whatever entity resided in that glade was let loose. Now, it's up to them to stop it before it's too late.

When Quinn comes to town, looking to research these strange events and turn them into a book, her presence seems to make the power of the three men even stronger -- but it also makes the "entity" stronger, as well. When Layla and Cybil are also drawn to Hawkins Hollow, the three men and three women band together to stop the horror that grips this town every seven years.

As I said, I really loved this book, and I can't wait for the next two books in the series. This is another winner, and fans of Ms. Roberts' THE KEY TRILOGY and the DANCE UPON THE... series will definitely enjoy THE SIGN OF SEVEN trilogy!

This is start of new trilogy. I bought on a Friday night and by Sunday am - read it all. This is a book of secrets- by the 3 main guys- by the town- by the 3 women involved. There are several scenes that made me shiver. She uses wonderful descriptions of the "encounters" to the point that you are there when the demon appears. Her men are real acting- not super heroes- but flesh and blood. The actions of everyone in the book draw you into their life. One of the mothers in the book is so real that you can identify with mothers you have known. And the father of Caleb is like so many real people I know.
I guess what I am saying- This is Roberts best book in a long time. You are actually there where this happens.
I am giving the book "10" stars. Only did that 1 time before.

This book was recommended by my Mom. At first I was skeptical as I knew Nora Roberts wrote romances; but MAN!! Was I in for a TREAT!!

Hawkins Hollow is the typical peaceful, loving town, where everyone knows another by name, and give a helping hand if their neighbor needed it.

But then one fateful night in July, at the stroke of midnight; three boys unleash an evil. Now every 7 years, for 7 days; evil walks the quit town of Hawkins Hollow bringing nothing but choas, sorrow, and death to all that dwell there.

Together the three boys grow into adult hood, dealing with what they've released and trying to put an end to what they have done. Will they be able to solve this dark mystery? Will they be able to except the help of outsiders? Will the 7 days of darkness end?

A must read. You will not regreat it and you will find it very hard to put this book down. This is just the first of the three books. Enjoy it and make sure you have a good sturdy chair; this will keep you on the edge of your seat.

This was my first Nora Roberts book and I LOVED it! I cannot wait until the next one comes out. It's about 3 kids who go out into the woods to camp out on the eve of their 10th birthday and unleash something evil. It is similar to Stephen King's "IT" in that they get together again and again into their adulthood to fight the evil that has taken hold of their quaint little town. It is mysterious, scary, romantic and so much more. I breezed right through it because it just had so much going on. The characters are great. Such a good book!

Nora Roberts once again weaves the lives of her characters together into a story that not only endears them to her readers, but also involves the supernatural. Three boys, born on the same day, make a pact on their 10th birthday to become blood brothers and in doing so unleash a force of evil. The force returns during the seventh day of the seventh month every seven years. In this first book, a group of 3 women end up in their town and team up with the boys, who are now men, readying to fight the evil for the 3rd round. The book covers the introduction of all the characters, their relationship with one another, and their research and joining together into a group of 6 to fight the evil. They succeed in round one, which leads the way into the second book of the trilogy.

I can sum up this book in one word; Cheesey! About the nicest thing I can say is that if you want a mindless read, this is the book for you. And to be fair, sometimes that is exactly what one needs.

I felt like I was back in high school reading this. Honestly, the book is written for someone w/the intelligence and attention span of a 3rd grader. The plot had a lot of potential but the end is so stupid, (and I won't give it away but it's a huge disappointment), that I wished I had followed my original instinct and never read it. I won't be reading the remaining books in the triology, that's for sure.
