Blood Brothers (Sign of Seven Trilogy Book 1)     Blood Brothers by Nora Roberts
Sign of Seven Trilogy Book #1
336 pages, Mass Market Paperbound published November 27th, 2007
ISBN: 0515143804
On the eve of their 10th birthday, the three boys meet to camp in the woods surrounding Hawkins Hollow.  Their destination is the Pagan Stone, where they perform a blood brother ritual cementing their friendship forever.  When their combined blood hits the ground by the Pagan Stone, a powerful evil, coiled in waiting for centuries, strikes.  Seven days of chaos engulf Hawkins Hollow after that ritual, but in the aftermath the citizens can’t quite recall the horror that possessed them. 

Every seven years, that evil returns in full force for seven days–and the citizens again don’t remember, or not clearly, what happened.  Only the boys, now men, know.
 
Now, three friends must gather their strength and pool their talent—with that of three women who are drawn to the town, and to them–to defeat the evil readying itself for a return to Hawkins Hollow.


I adored this novel! There’s a reason Nora’s my fave author.

I liked the picturesque little town of Hawkins Hollow and the people in it. The main characters aren’t without their flaws, but it makes them more human and a little more relatable. I like the sense of mystery, suspense, and the odd happenings give this novel everything it needs. Too bad I have to wait until May ’08 for the second book, The Hollow.

Excellent read… As always.
