I liked the book itself. Nora Roberts is a great writer and I have enjoyed her other books immensely. On my 1992 copy it is categorized as fiction. I am glad it is not under the romance category because I would greatly be disappointed regarding that. To me it is not a romance, it is more of a horror story but since I do like horrors and thrillers, I enjoyed reading the book. It was very graphic but she could branch out to horror if she chose because she did write it very well. I can't say I would recommend it to romance readers but possibly to horror fans or thriller fans. ( )

This Book is a little bit darker than the usual Nora Roberts. While I absolutely love the more mystical side of her writing, I thought this one was a little bit too much. The writing was good as always but the subject was far darker than I expected with circumstances that were more than a bit disturbing. Keep that in mind when picking up this book. ( )

I ENJOYED THIS BOOK VERY MUCH. THE ENDING WAS CRAZY. I CANT BELIEVE WHAT NORA ROBERTS REVEALED AT THE END THAT THE LEADER WAS THE WOMEN! I WAS FLABBERGASTED. BUT OVERALL IT SEEMED LIKE THIS KIND OF STORY WOULD OCCUR IN REAL LIFE RATHER THAN HER USUAL FAIRYTALE STORIES, THAT ARE STILL GOOD TO ENJOY ( )

Book description
With blowtorch and steel Clare Kimball has sculpted a personal vision that commands the attention of the New York art world. But success cannot burn away the vague, troubling memories, the half-remembered nightmares that have plagued Clare since childhood. These phantoms of the past have drawn her home to Maryland, to the small town where she grew up and where her father died in circumstances never really explained. Emmitsboro is just as Clare remembered--the same familiar faces, the same chatty gossip passed over the counter at the local diner. Nothing much has changed--except Cameron Raferty. Once the high-school bad boy, he landed on the right side of the law and is now the town sheriff. The only clue to his wild, passionate nature is the light in his eyes when he looks at Clare. In Cam's strong arms Clare is seduced into falling in love. And into believing her small-town world is safe... But within the dark woods of Emmitsboro something evil spreads its poisonous power. Now the once-peaceful town is wrapped in a cloak of terror, hiding a treacherous heart. And now Clare must pay the price for digging up the secrets of the past ... and confront an evil that may be unstoppable--because those who practice it believe it is divine.
