Island of Glass by Nora Roberts
Guardians series #3
Published: December 6, 2016
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….
This is the final book of the Guardians trilogy, and in usual Nora Roberts fashion, there is a romance interwoven into the story. The romance focused on in this story is between Riley, who is a werewolf, and Doyle, who will live forever because of a curse.
The evil queen makes a few more tries to squash our heroes and comes close, but heroes will be heroes and get the job done. It was a nail biter though.
I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy, and will be adding all three books to the list of books to re-read when I’m having trouble. If you don’t know, I have certain books where if I’m feeling stressed or anxious, I will listen or read these certain books to help me through the stress and anxiety. These books are full of strangers who come together and make something great together.
