BLOOD BROTHERS ARE POISED FOR A SHOWDOWN -- A REVIEW
They are seeking adventure on their tenth birthday, but unleash something more. Something that will return every seven years, daring them to break the spell, quash the evil.
Finally, twenty-one years later, we meet three women who arrive, one by one: a writer, Quinn Black; a woman from Manhattan, Layla Clark; and a friend with psychic gifts, Cybil Kinski. As each of them meet the three boys, now grown (Cal, Fox and Gage), their unusual connections to one another signify something powerful that foreshadows the future they will share.
What do the six discover in their quest? What is the significance of their connections to Hawkins Hollow? And how will they arm themselves to win out over the Evil that dominates the small town?
In this first book of the Sign of Seven Trilogy, Blood Brothers (Sign of Seven Trilogy, Book 1) , Roberts does a great job of piquing my curiosity for what lies ahead. I liked best the moments of lighthearted fun between the six characters, and the hint of romance, but also surprised myself by how the paranormal elements also grabbed me and held on. So now I'll have to read the next two books. I'm giving this one four stars, because there were parts that I didn't enjoy too much, but I'll be returning for my interest in how Roberts creates her characters and how she shows the connections between them.
