In Island of Glass, our story continues with our six guardians, who travel to Doyle’s and Bran’s home in Ireland. Doyle has some bittersweet moments that he has to face of his past, of losing his brother and losing everyone he has ever loved over the years. This is where they are on the final leg of their journey and their battle again the evil goddess.

This is Doyle and Riley’s book, and I admit I wasn’t sure how I would feel about it. These two aren’t my favorite characters of the six, and I hadn’t really felt much of their chemistry in the previous two books so I was curious to see how this book would play out their romance. And it wasn’t what I was wanting, I did feel like it was a bit lacking at times, but they did have some stunning moments that I loved though. Doyle and Riley have more alpha like characteristics. They are both fights, leaders and are badass. So they have many personality traits in common. Riley is our shifter of the group, but she is more open to love than Doyle is. She views Doyle as her potential mate, but she also knows that Doyle isn’t wanting anything serious.

However weary he might be of life after three centuries of it, he was more weary of witnessing death.

Doyle has closed off his heart completely. He has been alone for a long time and has watched everyone he has loved die over the years, so it makes sense he wouldn’t want to lose Riley either. But I did feel like their relationship had some disjointed moments at times but I will say they create fireworks in the bedroom. Probably the hottest sex scenes in the trilogy is in this book. Which makes sense in some ways, since these two are the strongest and no gentle loving when having sex. But I did want more from their story, more emotional intimacy that I found lacking at times.

The plot of the story was simply just as wonderful as the previous two books. There is adventure, suspense, trickery of the mind, and an evil goddess that is to be defeated and boy what a ENDING!! It was so satisfying and fulfilled me in every way. I just love seeing good win over evil and this one packed a punch.

Overall I had a blast with this trilogy, in seeing the growth and unity of these six individuals and seeing a intriguing and intense story play out which some great adventures, captivating characters and a stunning story I won’t soon forget! ( )

This is the final book in the Guardians Trilogy. The guardians are on a quest to find the Ice Star hidden by three goddesses eons ago. The star must be found and restored to the goddesses in order to save the world from the clutches of an evil goddess who wants to destroy all that is good. To this end Riley, a Lucan and Doyle, an immortal, are joined by a witch, a traveler, a seer and a mermaid. They travel to the coast of Clare, Ireland for this last search, staying on the land that was Doyle's home over 300 years ago. They train and plan for the end of their quest. This was a fun series. A very light quick read. ( )

Island of Glass is the final entry in the Guardian's Trilogy featuring Riley and Doyle. Riley who is the lycan and Doyle, the immortal. Both must face the demons of their past to proceed on to their future which is to finally face and kill Nerezza. To find love, each must realize their need for each other even though their time together is limited.
This is another great ending in one of Nora Roberts' trilogies. As always, the characters must come to terms with their own internal conflicts to defeat those external ones that threaten their lives and the lives of the ones they love. These trilogies are always emotional, fun, and filled with excitement and this one is no exception. ( )

Left with one couple after the previous two books, it was obvious that the Werewolf and the Immortal Warrior were going to end up together. The story is mostly focussed about the 6 learning how to work together and become a team. The final conflict felt a little rushed but overall I enjoyed the read and the characters. ( )
