Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. In the town of Hawkins Hollow, it's called The Seven. Every seven.
She was the youngest of the five children, also the only girl, of a marriage with Irish ancestors. Her family were avid readers, so books were always important in her life. She attended a Catholic school and credits the nuns with instilling in her a sense of discipline. During her sophomore year in high school, she transferred to a local public school, where she met Ronald Aufdem-Brinke, her future first husband. In August 17, , as soon as she had graduated from High School, Eleanor married, against her parents' wishes. The marriage settled in Keedysville, Maryland.
And please, please, don't literally translate "sensible shoes" to Portuguese any-more!! Because it's working!! I'll probably wait for a promotion to download it, though. Even though I know I haven't read this trilogy before, but because I have read a number of Nora Roberts books it "felt" like I had already read this one.
This is the first book in the trilogy and it spent a lot of time setting the scene for all three books. All six characters 3 couples have been set up with couple number one being set up with their potential HEA. Although I liked Cal, I really didn't like Quinn which made it hard to like their story. On top of that this book seemed rather boring with only a couple of scenes that really pulled me in. The ending definitely felt like it ended in the middle of the story and I was left feeling it was incomplete even for the first book of a trilogy.

It was raining and very cold outside and what better to do than lay on the couch covered up while thrown into a good book and drinking hot tea. The story captured me right away, the characters were awsome and I actually laughed out loud in some parts.

Caleb, Fox, and Gage are 3 young boys who decide to venture out on the eve of their 10th birthday and camp out in the woods by the well known Pagan Stone that everyone warns to stay away from. Not only do they sneak off to do this but they think they are grown up Men to try beer, cigerettes, and look at nude magazines. They soon find out that the beer is not all what grown-ups make it out to be and they get sick and pass out. They wake up a couple of hours later and start a fire and start talking about making a pact at midnight and sliced a small portion in their wrist to mingle their blood to become blood brothers.
I don't want to spoil the book but things happen through out the town every 7 years for 7 days, evil things happen and people don't realize it or even remember their actions except for the 3 Blood brothers and some members of their family.
Black and White magic is at work or some call it religion and witch craft have a hand in with the sacred ground and the Pagan stone.
But somehow, those 3 boys set the black magic loose and now they have to figure out a way to stop it. Here it is now that the boys are fixing to be 31 yrs old, things get stirred up when Quinn - a writer - comes to town to write and figure out the scoop of strange things happening at Calebs request.
Little does Quinn know when she and Cal find themselves in love with each other as the story thickens. Layla and Cybil are added to the equation as their paths are crossed. In the end, all their paths come together as they learn that they all have blood ties to an event that took place with the Pagan Stone and they must all work together to stop the evil madness before July.
Now I have to read the next book in the series to find out if they - all six of them - find a way to stop the evil. View all 7 comments. The prolific Nora Roberts is an author I normally read on recommendation only. This is purely because she written so MANY books it's too hard for me to navigate through her normal books and her fantastic books without a second opinion. This one, however, was one I found all by myself: Lucky for me, it was great.
It was a really charming opening to her new Sign of Seven Trilogy and left on a great cliff-hanger! I'm normally a fraidy-cat when it comes to suspense but even though this was creepy at times, I never found my heart beating faster. Seeing as I don't really enjoy being scared, this suited me just fine. If however, you like to be a little spooked, you might find this novel a little on the mild side of thrilling.
Like a true romance author, the demon-chasing comes second to the romantic relationship of the novel's center. And the main characters Cal and Quinn are likeable, slightly quirky people who are fun to watch fall in love. They had a great dymanic but I wouldn't have expected any less from NR.
After so many novels, she has got the whole male-female thing pegged. This is a great filler-book. Read it over a weekend in between your heavy historicals to give your mind a break and your heart the warm and fuzzies. Perfect for the beach or lazy Summer days - I'm saving the sequel The Hollow for a time when I just need to relax! View 2 comments. Apr 17, Kim Porter rated it it was ok Recommended to Kim by: Well, I'm going to be completely honest and just say that this book was pretty boring.
It dragged on, and she kept repeating the same concept of the story, over and over! Unfortunatly, this is one I did not. I found my mind wandering to other things, and the characters really bothered me.

Once again, she's very repeditive when it comes to the story line, some people like that, but for me, just give it to me once and I'm good. Needless to say, this book was one of a trilogy, and I won't be getting book 2.

It would be even more boring to reiterate how each of her gambits resembles previous books, so I won't bother doing it.
I don't know what compelled me to get this from site. I'm pretty sure it was because I wanted to get the 4 for 3 special and couldn't find a last book.
But despite the fact that my refund will be less than the price of media mail, I'm returning this to site, just so this crappy author won't get another dime because of me. Oct 26, Pamela AllHoney rated it liked it Shelves: Not bad, I liked it.
I've liked most of what I've read of Nora Roberts but I'm not a big fan of plotlines that carry through several books. I prefer closure at the end of the book I'm reading. I may continue the series if I can find the books at the library. Basically, the plot is - three 10 year old boys go camping in the woods to celebrate their birthday.
They were all born on the same day. They do something that unleases some kind of evil upon their community of Hawkins Hollow. Now, 21 year la Not bad, I liked it. Now, 21 year later, they are working together, along with three women, to figure out how to stop this evil once and for all. This book tells the romance between Caleb Hawkins and Quinn Black I had a review all saved up, and now it's deleted. I will re-write this later. Dec 23, Beth moonivy rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Caleb, Fox and Gage have been friends all of their lives, sworn blood brothers in the small town of Hawkins Hollow.
Every seven years an ancient horror that was set loose on their ten birthday breaks free and ravages the town. Now approaching their 31st birthday, they fear this may be the last battle for their little town. Sparks fly when intrepid reporter Quinn Black arrives to research the story and Caleb's reluctant attraction sets a partnership in motion that may be Hawkins Hollow's last hope. Likeable characters, an interesting mystery and a nicely drawn portrait of small-town life meld together to make this book the best Nora I've read in a very long time.
It reminds me of her earlier trilogies that I liked so much like the Quinn brothers and the Donovan family and the Jewels of the Sea trilogy. Her books have been hit or miss for me for a few years now, so I'm happy to report that this one is definitely a hit. I'll be looking forward to the next installment in May. Blood Brothers Author: Nora Roberts Date Began: Romance Publication: Nov 02, Marleen rated it it was ok Shelves: Being a N. I like the idea of the story and I like the 3 male characters and their relation to their respective families, which feels real and genuine.
The character I can't relate to is Quinn. I realize this is a very personal opinion but I don't like the way she speaks, acts, I don't like her attitude, her tone, her bossiness. I usually love strong women in the books I read, but I couldn't see it in this one. View all 3 comments. Tem de haver amor. Although this book kind of moved along and had an interesting premise, for some reason I just wasn't bowled over by it.
But I found it a bit repetitive and drawn out - the story in this book could easily have been told in about pages less.

I can see why - the author probably knew that she was writing a trilogy but still wanted each book to be substantial.
But perhaps the thing that irked me most of all was Quinn. I am all for feisty, pull-no-punches heroines, but there is a fine line between feisty and just plain pushy and I found Quinn to be way over the line to the latter. I wanted to like her but I just couldn't. Every time she opened her mouth I kept thinking of some of those irritating TV celebrities who make it their hallmark to be mouthy in order to be funny, but just end up being annoying. Perhaps my British sensibilities can't take it, but I honestly couldn't understand why Cal fell in love with her!
Sure, I'd like to know what happens and apparently the next book in the series is about Fox and Layla, which hopefully means less of Quinn! If that's the case then I'll definitely read it, but I will do my best not to throw my iPad across the room every time that woman opens her mouth! Nov 14, Andy Wilkerson rated it it was ok. This was my first Nora Roberts book, and I picked it up after a friend gave it her highest recommendation.
However, I wasn't that enthralled by it. The storyline had potential, but I feel like the characters drug it down. The most interesting part of this book was when the boys were 10, everything after that was a steady line of boring for me. Roberts was going for this likeable, pushy, strong character but it was way overdone and after This was my first Nora Roberts book, and I picked it up after a friend gave it her highest recommendation.
Roberts was going for this likeable, pushy, strong character but it was way overdone and after reading a couple of her long dialogues I just wanted her to shut up. All three of the guys started off really interesting to me. They were all from different backgrounds, and made a great trio when put together. For me they blended too much, and if the characters are bland, then so is the story. The love…. This goes back to me not liking Quinn. Even trying to over look that fact, I thought the love part was just kinda thrown together.
I do not think I will be picking up the next two books. Nov 26, Jen n rated it it was ok Shelves: Doubling up on the brain candy for the holiday weekend. This book is terrible. I can't stop reading it. For the love of God, stop having sex and go fight the demon. Finished this a couple of days ago. It is the worst. It reads like a Lifetime supernatural movie. I thought I'd be able to slog through the rest of the trilogy, but I don't think I'm going to.
I will, however, try another Nora Roberts, because you don't get to be as beloved as she is just by writing Doubling up on the brain candy for the holiday weekend. I will, however, try another Nora Roberts, because you don't get to be as beloved as she is just by writing crap. Maybe she had a bad day when she wrote this one I'm pretty sure it took 20 minutes to crank out. Nov 30, Tashia rated it it was amazing.
I stumbled upon this one on site so preordered it and it arrived in the mail today and I finished it tonighta quick read and filled with the magical stuff her recent works have been filled with.
I am not usually one to love books about demons and gods and netherworlds yet somehow I can quickly devour most anything roberts writes perhaps it is the romantic in me-mix a little romance into these books and I'm hooked.
Escapism for a few hours perhaps.

A very alluring plot with characters that you can't help but fall in love with. Phenomenons every 7 years for 7 days starting on the 7th of July that all began with 3 best friends having an overnight campout at a myth filled spot called Pagan rock. The boys have a blood brother ceremony and what unfolded when their blood mingled changes their future and ends their childhood as they knew it.
Now I can't wait to read the ot This is not one of my normal genres but I'm so glad I picked up this book! Now I can't wait to read the other two books in this trilogy to see what happens with these 3 friends, the 3 woman that drawn to Hawkins Hollow, which isn't just a coincidence, and all the residents of this little town.
Lang geleden dat ik nog een boek van Nora Roberts ter hand genomen heb. Nog geen 30 pagina's ver of ze had me al helemaal beet. Ze houdt er een goede drive in, met de nodige wat mij betreft toch humor, romantiek en gezonde actie en spanning. Ben heel benieuwd hoe dees gaat aflopen. Op naar het volgende deel dus. Feb 06, Lisa - Aussie Girl rated it liked it Shelves: Jul 27, Mojca rated it really liked it Shelves: Three boys who shared their birthday, Caleb, Fox, and Gage, decided to celebrate their tenth birthday at the Pagan Stone, a strange, altar-like stone in the middle of the woods surrounding Hawkins Hollow, the village where the three grew up.
Every seven years, for seven days in the seventh month, the small town of Hawkins Hollow descends into madness. Strange accidents happen; neigh Three boys who shared their birthday, Caleb, Fox, and Gage, decided to celebrate their tenth birthday at the Pagan Stone, a strange, altar-like stone in the middle of the woods surrounding Hawkins Hollow, the village where the three grew up.
Strange accidents happen; neighbors turn against neighbors, husbands against wives… When the Seven is over, no one remembers anything. Except the three blood brothers. Now, twenty-one years later, the three boys turned men know the time might have come to end it. It has grown stronger, but so have them. The first story in the Sign of Seven trilogy focuses on the oldest of the men born on the same day, Caleb Hawkins, the descendant of the founders of the village.
He feels responsible for what is happening, because he was the one who suggested the blood bond between friends. Quinn Black is a writer, specialized in paranormal phenomena. These two people will form a strong bond, the first of the three that might eventually conquer the evil living in the woods. Unlike many other out there, it does not start slow. The reader is immediately hip deep in battle between good and evil. IMHO the romance had much to be desired. Even if we take into consideration the dire circumstances, bonding in time of peril, it still seemed a little rushed.
The descriptions of the manifestations [the grinning boy] are goose-bump worthy, and I loved the interaction between the leads. The dialogues were smart, funny, and fast-paced, and there is just an appropriate hint of humor toward the end to let the reader have a breather before all hell breaks loose.
Mar 22, Tina rated it really liked it Shelves: First book of the Sign of the Seven Trilogy In the s in the small town of Hawkins Hollow a band of townspeople, led by a fanatical Puritan leader named Lazarus Twisse, entered a wooded clearing where stood a small cabin.
They were there to accuse and burn the inhabitants of Witchcraft. What followed caused the deaths of all in the vicinity, left a perfect ring of fire and a smooth stone altar. They swear a blood pact to be best friends forever. As their blood drips on the stone altar, something is unleashed. Every seven years, on the 7th day of the 7th month, the inhabitants of Hawkins Hollow endure what a they call "the seven. The three boys, Gage, Caleb and Fox realize they are somehow the cause of the events and seek to understand, help and prevent.
Signs point to fact the third manifestation of the Seven the year the three men will turn 31 will be cataclysmic. The signs appear earlier and the evil seems stronger. But a new player has entered the scene. Quinn Black, a writer has come to Hawkins Hollow to write a book on the rumors about the town.
But once she gets there she realizes that she is somehow connected the the events. For those familiar with Nora Roberts' other paranormal trilogies such as The Key trilogy and the Circle trilogy, the set up is familiar. Three guys, three gals, each couple gets a book as they all work together to defeat the evil that is happening.
This was a fun, quick read albeit a bit spookier than her other trilogies. This is like Stephen King lite. I almost wanted to classify it horror except on the main, it is largely a romance novel. She certainly sets a great stage and creates really engaging characters.
And as this is the first book of a trilogy, nothing really happens here except the meeting of the six principle players, setting up the backstory,and letting the first couple get together. I look forward to the second and third books of the trilogy. Mais uma vez, dei por mim colada a este livro, incapaz de interromper a leitura.

This is the story of three men that when they were ten years old, they unleashed, unwillingly, a great evil. In their quest, they have three allies. There are three women that for a mysterious reason feel a connection with this town. Although, the main characters are six: Cal is a great guy and very down-to-earth. Quinn is absolutely fantastic!

Welcome back. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Nora Roberts Grou A review of the re-release on CD of On the Beach described the music as "mesmerizing, harrowing, lucid, and bleary".
Most of the songs were written after Young's break-up with Carrie Snodgress, and thus the tone of the album was somewhat dark. Though Homegrown was reportedly entirely complete, Young decided, not for the first or last time in his career, to drop it and release something else instead, in this case, Tonight's the Night, at the suggestion of Band bassist Rick Danko. Tonight's the Night when finally released in , sold poorly, as had the previous albums of the "ditch" trilogy, and received mixed reviews at the time, but is now regarded as a landmark album.
In Young's own opinion, it was the closest he ever came to art. It was one of the first ever stadium tours, and the largest tour in which Young has participated to date. Many of the songs dealt with the theme of failed relationships; " Cortez the Killer ", a retelling of the Spanish conquest of Mexico from the viewpoint of the Aztecs , may also be heard as an allegory of love lost. Zuma's closing track, "Through My Sails", was the only released fragment from aborted sessions with Crosby, Stills and Nash for another group album.
In , Young reunited with Stephen Stills for the album Long May You Run September 20, , credited to The Stills-Young Band ; the follow-up tour was ended midway through by Young, who sent Stills a telegram that read: "Funny how some things that start spontaneously end that way. Eat a peach, Neil. The release of Martin Scorsese 's movie of the concert was delayed while Scorsese unwillingly re-edited it to obscure the lump of cocaine that was clearly visible hanging from Young's nose during his performance of " Helpless ".
In , Young also released the compilation Decade , a personally selected set of songs spanning every aspect of his work, including a handful of previously unreleased songs. The record included less commercial album tracks alongside radio hits. Comes a Time October 2, , Young's first entirely new solo recording since the mids, also featured Larson and Crazy Horse. The album became Young's most commercially accessible album in quite some time and marked a return to his folk roots, including a cover of Ian Tyson 's " Four Strong Winds ", a song Young associated with his childhood in Canada.
Another of the album's songs, " Lotta Love ", was also recorded by Larson, with her version reaching number 8 on the Billboard Hot in February In , much of the filming was done for Young's film Human Highway , which took its name from a song featured on Comes a Time.
This also marked the beginning of his brief collaboration with the post-punk band Devo , whose members appeared in the film. Each concert was divided into a solo acoustic set and an electric set with Crazy Horse.
The electric sets, featuring an aggressive style of playing, were later seen as a response to punk rock. Their lyrics have been among Young's most widely quoted. Young also compared the rise of Johnny Rotten with that of the recently deceased "King" Elvis Presley , who himself had once been disparaged as a dangerous influence only to later become an icon.
Rotten returned the favour by playing one of Young's songs, "Revolution Blues" from On the Beach , on a London radio show, an early sign of Young's eventual embrace by a number of punk-influenced alternative musicians. A movie version of the concerts, also called Rust Never Sleeps , was directed by Young under the pseudonym "Bernard Shakey". Young worked with rock artist Jim Evans to create the poster art for the film, using the Star Wars Jawas as a theme. Young's work since Harvest had alternated between being rejected by mass audiences and being seen as backward-looking by critics, sometimes both at once, and now he was suddenly viewed as relevant by a new generation, who began to discover his earlier work.
The Warner Music Vision release on VHS of Rust Never Sleeps in had a running time of minutes, and although fully manufactured in Germany, was initially imported from there by the markets throughout Europe. Experimental years — [ edit ] At the start of the decade, distracted by medical concerns relating to the cerebral palsy of his son, Ben, Young had little time to spend on writing and recording.
The 80s were like, artistically, very strong for me, because I knew no boundaries and was experimenting with everything that I could come across, sometimes with great success, sometimes with terrible results, but nonetheless I was able to do this, and I was able to realize that I wasn't in a box, and I wanted to establish that.
Records , whose parent Warner Music Group owns most of Young's solo and band catalogue and represented a distinct stylistic departure.
Young later revealed that an inspiration for the album was the theme of technology and communication with his son Ben, who has severe cerebral palsy and cannot speak. MTV played the video for "Sample and Hold" in light rotation. The entire song contained "robot vocals" by Young and Nils Lofgren. The song "After Berlin" as seen in that video, was the only time Neil Young has ever performed the song. Young playing in Barcelona , Spain, Young's next album, 's Everybody's Rockin' , included several rockabilly covers and clocked in at less than twenty-five minutes in length.
Young was backed by the Shocking Pinks for the supporting US tour. Trans had already drawn the ire of label head David Geffen for its lack of commercial appeal, and with Everybody's Rockin' following only seven months later, Geffen Records sued Young for making music "unrepresentative" of himself.
Also premiered in , though little seen, was Human Highway. Young's lack of productivity was largely due to the ongoing legal battle with Geffen, although he was also frustrated that the label had rejected his country album Old Ways. Later diagnosed with inherited epilepsy, Amber Jean was Neil and Pegi's second child together.
The album was finally released in an altered form midway through Young also appeared at that year's Live Aid concert in Philadelphia , collaborating with Crosby, Stills and Nash for the quartet's first performance for a paying audience in over ten years. Young recorded 's Landing on Water without Crazy Horse but reunited with the band for the subsequent year-long tour and final Geffen album, Life , which emerged in Young's album sales dwindled steadily throughout the eighties; today Life remains his all-time-least successful studio album, with an estimated four hundred thousand sales worldwide.
The addition of a brass section provided a new jazzier sound, and the title track of 's This Note's For You became Young's first hit single of the decade. Accompanied by a video that parodied corporate rock, the pretensions of advertising, and Michael Jackson , the song was initially unofficially banned by MTV for mentioning the brand names of some of their sponsors. The album was only the second-ever studio record for the quartet. The album's lyrics were often overtly political; "Rockin' in the Free World" deals with homelessness, terrorism, and environmental degradation, implicitly criticizing the government policies of President George H.
The rising stars of the genre, including Nirvana 's Kurt Cobain and Pearl Jam 's Eddie Vedder , frequently cited Young as a major influence, contributing to his popular revival.
Young's album Ragged Glory , recorded with Crazy Horse in a barn on his Northern California ranch, continued this distortion-heavy esthetic. Young toured for the album with Orange County, California country-punk band Social Distortion and alternative rock pioneers Sonic Youth as support, much to the consternation of many of his old fans.
The title track was a minor hit and the record was well received by critics, winning the Juno Award for Album of the Year in Young also contributed to Randy Bachman 's nostalgic tune "Prairie Town", and garnered a Academy Award nomination for his song "Philadelphia", from the soundtrack of the Jonathan Demme movie of the same name. An MTV Unplugged performance and album emerged in Later that year, Young collaborated with Booker T.
Some European shows ended with a rendition of "Rockin' in the Free World" played with Pearl Jam , foreshadowing their eventual full-scale collaboration two years later. Young on stage in Barcelona In Young again collaborated with Crazy Horse for Sleeps with Angels , a record whose dark, somber mood was influenced by Kurt Cobain 's death earlier that year: the title track in particular dealt with Cobain's life and death, without mentioning him by name.
Cobain had quoted Young's lyric "It's better to burn out than fade away" a line from " My My, Hey Hey " in his suicide note. Young had reportedly made repeated attempts to contact Cobain prior to his death. Young has consistently demonstrated the unbridled passion of an artist who understands that self-renewal is the only way to avoid burning out. For this reason, he has remained one of the most significant artists of the rock and roll era. Young's instrumental soundtrack was improvised while he watched the film alone in a studio.
The death of longtime mentor, friend, and producer David Briggs in late prompted Young to reconnect with Crazy Horse the following year for the album and tour Broken Arrow. A Jarmusch-directed concert film and live album of the tour, Year of the Horse , emerged in Festival's sixth annual tour. In , Young renewed his collaboration with the rock band Phish , sharing the stage at the annual Farm Aid concert and then at Young's Bridge School Benefit, where he joined headliners Phish for renditions of " Helpless " and " I Shall Be Released ".
The decade ended with the release in late of Looking Forward , another reunion with Crosby, Stills, and Nash. His single "Let's Roll" was a tribute to the victims of the September 11 attacks , and the effective action taken by the passengers and crew on Flight 93 in particular. The songs loosely revolved around the murder of a police officer in a small town in California and its effects on the town's inhabitants.
