Books from the Backlog - Island of Glass

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!  Today's book is Island of Glass by Nora Roberts.

Blurb: 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...

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I loved the first two in this fantasy/romantic suspense trilogy and I loved all the books that Roberts has set in Ireland.  I've had this one for almost a year and somehow still haven't read the conclusion.


  1. I don't think I've ever read one of her books. I love the cover

  2. I do want to read this trilogy because it sounds really good. I hope you enjoy it when you get the chance to read it, Katherine!

  3. Okay; I have yet to read this series. *insert thinking emoji* Maybe it'll be one I binge upon this winter break.
