2010: #93 – Morrigan's Cross (Nora Roberts)

morriganBook #93 was Morrigan’s Cross, the first book in the Circle Trilogy by Nora Roberts.  The back of the book reads:

As a storm rages, the tale of a powerful vampire’s lust for destruction-and of the circle of six charged by the goddess Morrigan to stop her-begins. One of the chosen is a medieval sorcerer whose quest will take him through time-and into the arms of a woman courageous enough to link her destiny to his own.

I’m not the greatest fan of Nora Roberts’ romances with a supernatural twist, but I thought I’d give this a try.  It was just okay.  I felt like the set-up was really weird.  Everyone just falls together and shows up where they are supposed to be, and making the reason be "because the goddess said so" is just a little too convenient. Overall, I guess I was a little bored with it. No one character stands out as anything other than a stereotype. I might read the other two books, just to complete the story, but I won’t rush to do it.
