Waiting On Wednesday No. 183: Island of Glass, by Nora Roberts

Welcome to "Waiting On Wednesday"!!
This is a weekly event that 
used to be hosted by
Jill @ Breaking the Spine, until 
very recently.
I have continued to publish these
posts on my own, as I reall
like this meme, which
showcases future releases which we book  bloggers are eagerly anticipating!!

Here's my choice for this week!

 Island of Glass  
(The Guardians Trilogy, Book 3)
Trade Paperback, 352 pages 
December 6, 2016
Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Suspense

The final Guardians Trilogy novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Bay of Sighs and Stars of Fortune.

As the hunt for the Star of Ice leads the six guardians to Ireland, Doyle, the immortal, must face his tragic past. Three centuries ago, he closed off his heart, yet his warrior spirit is still drawn to the wild. And there’s no one more familiar with the wild than Riley—and the wolf within her…

An archaeologist, Riley is no stranger to the coast of Clare, but now she finds herself on unsure footing, targeted by the dark goddess who wants more than the stars, more than the blood of the guardians. While searching through Irish history for clues that will lead them to the final star and the mysterious Island of Glass, Riley must fight her practical nature and admit her sudden attraction to Doyle is more than just a fling. For it is his strength that will sustain her and give her the power to run towards love—and save them all…

Why I'm waiting on this one!

Well, I was visiting "Paradise" the other day (this is my private little nickname for my local Barnes & Noble store, lol), and came across Bay of Sighs, the second book in this trilogy, in the romance section. The cover was SO gorgeous, I just HAD to take a closer look. To my surprise and delight, it turned out to be a fantasy novel containing paranormal romance elements! I didn't buy the book right then and there, though, because I need to get it on Amazon. I'm a bit low on money right now...but I will definitely get it! I want to start with the first one, Stars of Fortune, of course!

Here are the first two books

  1. Gosh, that cover is brilliant! I forget Nora Roberts writes paranormal. Here's mine

    1. Hi, Verushka!

      I know!! I LOVE it!! In fact, all three covers of these books are absolutely GORGEOUS! And the plots are SO fascinating, too!!

      I can't wait to make all three books mine! Thanks for dropping by and commenting!! :)

  2. I have a friend that LOVES this series, and I agree, the covers are awesome. I still need to read the witchy/paranormal series she published before this one - can't recall the name but I do own all three of them. You might want to look them up as well. OK, it's called The Cousins O'Dywer Trilogy. My friend swears by them as well.

    1. Hi, Barb!

      It really does sound GREAT!! Not only are the covers GORGEOUS, but the plots are fascinating, as well!

      As for The Cousins O'Dwyer series, I saw it at Barnes & Noble, too, the night I saw this trilogy. That'a another one I want to own!

      Thanks for commenting back!! <3 :)
