Nora Roberts is one of my favorite writers. She rarly disappoints me. Though I haven't read all of her work, the majority has a place on my bookshelves. Shadow Spell, though similar to some of her previous work, brings the classic battle between good and evil into our lives through a small location in Ireland. From friendship to lovers, this love story brings out the best in Connor and forces Meara to re-evaluate her past and what her friendships mean to her. Through the six major characters you see the strong friendships and committment they have developed. A quick read, I enjoyed the bits of Ireland that float throughout the book. Love, Romance, Falconry, Witches, and Ireland, what more could you ask for.
