birthday, the age when Mallick, the visitor, promised he d return to the farm and take her away from her family for training As that date looms closer, Fallon and her family make the most of their time together Meanwhile, the residents of New Hope have created a viable city and formed close relationships as the country has not emerged from the apocalyptic effects of The Doom Kate s twins, Duncan and Antonia are now teenagers who have mastered their gifts for the benefit of the town and beyond and are vital to their continued development When I learned that Roberts was creating this series, I worried that she might not be able to pull this off This story continues the excellence of the first, with minute attention to detail, lore and fantasy while keeping the focus in the realities of the present day What s also remarkable is how effectively the human condition is woven into the character development, clear lines between good and evil but also the acknowledgment that our natural human instincts don t necessarily have us fall definitively in one or the other It s a very complicated, dangerous world but hope sits beside despair Most of the story is Fallon s narrative but we do get others points of view exactly when I felt I needed them Julia Whelan delivers such an outstanding performance I had to remind myself that she was the only narrator She doesn t resort to attempts at baritone for male voices and yet I recognized the gender every time My decision to listen to this series was one of my better ones as she just makes a great story even better Fallon s maturation and honing of her gifts, skills and temperament was interesting than I d imagined I loved Mallick and how their relationship developed and shaped I don t want to divulge much about the story but rest assured there s plenty of excitement, intrigue, tension and even romance as she connects with New Hope There s one particular scene that can only be described as spectacular with a

She has mine Of Blood and Bone picks up a few years after the end of Year One We see the One grow and learn and near their thirteenth year, when they must leave home and beginning their training in earnest The training sequences and quests that the One must complete are the elements that reminded me so strongly of epic fantasy Here, in the midst of rusting cars and cracked asphalt, we are shown a magic that is wild and mysterious and is somehow seamlessly joined to the broken world from which it sprang While magic is almost an entity in its own right, those that use it learn and grow in their knowledge, which I always loving seeing in a novel As with all of Nora s novels, the relationships are the backbone She excels at creating families of both blood and choosing I m not going to get into any relationship in particular, because honestly any name I list is going to be a spoiler for the first book That s why I refer to the One as they instead of assigning a gender, as even that is a bit of a spoiler What I will say is that beauty arose from the ashes of Doom in the forms of families and communities The bonds developed through shared trauma are oftentimes deeper and stronger and enduring than their sunnier counterparts, and that depth is well demonstrated here Besides the radical genre shift, there is also one other difference in this novel as compared to the rest of Nora s work there s not a single sex scene There are a couple of steamy kisses, but that s it From someone who built her career on romance, I thought this exclusion was a pretty shocking decision, but it absolutely works with the story This is due in part to the ages of the main characters, which was another kind of different narrative choice for Nora while adults are around and play important supporting roles, kids are undoubtedly the stars As with the first book, there was no central romance However, in this book we can see the foundation of what looks to be an explosive romance playing out in the final installment I have no negatives at all in regards to this novel, and found it to be even stronger than the first installment of the series My one and only complaint is that I have to wait until November 2019 to see how the story ends I feel like this is a trilogy that can both draw in new fans who prefer fantasy to romance, as well as pushing current Nora fans out of their comfort zone into new genres I can t recommend it highly enough, and will be counting down the days until I can get my hands on The Rise of Magicks flag 33 likesLike see review View all 4 comments Dec 05,

only this is Roberts delivered a fantasy world with magic, magical creatures, good, evil, Celtic lore and.While Roberts does a good job of bringing the listener up to speed, I recommend listening to the series in the order of their release.I loved the magic, the prophecies and the visions Fallon s training was one of my favorite aspects of the story from her quests to spell making After the middle section of the story shares her return to her family and this section was the slowest for me Once we began our journey again the pacing picked up as did the action.Along the way we meet fairies, elves, and gifted animals Fallon herself collects several animal companions We see battles, reunions and the begins of a romance Our heroine is young, but she persuades hundreds to follow her, and Roberts made me believe in the prophecy and in this young woman.Agh now we have to wait a year for the next book I for one cannot wait and hope that Whelan continues to narrate She has become

pretty sure this type of book is my absolute favorite Watching people start all over again and learn to survive in a world that s new is one of my favorite things It has a The Walking Dead type feel,

for creating characters that the reader is willing to invest in and care about, and it s easy to credit Stephen King s quote on the rear cover I love Nora Roberts she effortlessly equals his power in

These people have dedicated their lives to protect people and build a new world from scratch It was such a happy moment to read about all these characters and the epic reunion.The story has magic, mythical creatures from Irish mythology and a lot of fighting and saving people The characters are so refreshing, even when they are repetitive, and the plot is thrilling and indulging Each chapter brings something new and I enjoyed every minute of it Of Blood and Bone is a book about reaching one s full potential, the responsibilities of a protector, a family that is loving and caring, and friends who would die for each other flag 10 likesLike see review Dec 22, 2018 Carol StarAngels Reviews Allen rated it it was amazing Another 5 Star read by Nora Roberts and her Chronicles of the One

once I no longer felt compelled to pick up the book or lost interest in where the story was going, I knew it was time to put the book down.If Ms Roberts is aiming for a YA audience the book might be successful in my mind With only 184 pages to go I had to put it down 446 pages in the book.It immediately gave a likeness to The Hunger Games and other such dystopian titles The characters seemed trite and surface only which only added to the weight of the book It might just be a case of this genre being over done Thanks to A Likely STore Bookstore for the ARC but I have to place this book in

the second book in the Chronicles of the One series and one of my most anticipated books of 2018 In 2017 I picked up the first book Year One without any expectations yet it ended up being one of my top new releases of that year That means that Of Blood and Bone came with a years worth of pent up excitement and my absolute conviction that I would love it I admit, with that much expectation it can be difficult But Nora Roberts proves why she has been such a successful writer for so long I loved it.This book starts about 13 years after the end of Year One the world has settled into the apocalypse, with settlements like new Hope trying to create a new community unifying both the magical and non magical people But, there are also the Purity Warriors who destroy and torture any magical person they come across, as well as raiders who attack anyone crossing their path Then there are the Dark Uncanny who use their magic to spread their evil and despair This is the only world that Fallon Swift has ever known, but she has been born The One and is destined to fight back the darkness It s a lot of responsibility for a 13 year old and now she must leave home to train and decide whether she is ready to take up the mantle of The One.Year One blew me away, it had the excitement and danger of an apocalypse, people were dying, magic was emerging, new people were meeting Nora Roberts had a lot to work with and she did a great job But, Of Blood and Bone is the middle book The excitement has settled into to day to day routines, relationships have been built and magic is now a well established part of life It could easily have been boring But it wasn t Although it wasn t quite the adrenaline rush of Year One it had its own set of challenges to deal with.Fallon Swift is now a teenager and in a lot of ways this book was a juiced up coming of age story Fallon is learning about her powers and how she should use them, leaving home and comforts behind But Fallon has than just boys and magic to worry about she s known from an early age that she s The One She has the big responsibility of saving the world It s a lot of pressure and I really enjoyed the way she handled it.But, we don t completely leave old friends behind This book switches from Fallon to the people of New Hope We see how the community and the people have developed, particularly the teenage twins Duncan and Tonia I admit, there were a lot of names and I would have benefited from rereading Year One before starting this book But, it soon came back to me and it was fascinating to see how they had developed their society and the roles the characters had played In fact, I would love if Roberts brought out some novellas that took place between the Year One and Of Blood and Bone A few characters unexpectedly coupled up and I would love to see how they got together.Although I loved this book it did take a bit of adjusting when I read I started it expecting to read another urban fantasy Instead it felt like a young adult This is because although there are adults and they definitely play a role, most of this book is told from the perspective of Fallon and Duncun They were the main protagonists, we saw Fallon training and we saw New Hope from Duncan s perspective.I really enjoyed this book, it was beautifully written and Roberts did a great job developing her characters and her

clearly Urban Fantasy and Post Apocalyptic with a good deal of Romance thrown in Book 2, Of Blood and Bone, is Young Adult, Post Apocalyptic, Urban Fantasy This book also follows Fantasy s hero s journey pretty thoroughly.Fallon Swift, the protagonist, born of Max Fallon and Lana Bingham from Year One, is just a teenager during this book It takes place, primarily, from ages thirteen to seventeen Throughout this time we get to see Fallon learn, grown, and come to terms with her destiny Destiny in quotations because it s also her choice Always her choice And like most things in life there are, serious, consequences for those choices Both for and against As I m sure we ve all learned, despite best intentions sometimes we just have to do something we re not really wanting to do Fallon starts this way I mean, honestly, it s pretty tough knowing from the time you re little that you re the CHOSEN ONE C mon That s rough.I like the rebellion and uncertainty that Fallon shows as she s growing into who she is Her reliance on the foundation that her parents have given her to build herself and her values is perfect And I love seeing her grow into the person capable of being the Chosen One.If I m being honest there s not a ton of action in this book There are a handful of events that happen that really move the world along, but most of the story is laser focused on Fallon, her quests, journey, growth, and learning Personally, I appreciate and enjoy that But if you re not expecting it, and expecting something closer to NR s normal writing, it might be a bit harder to swallow.Even as this book delves further into the post apocalyptic world that everyone is currently living, it also becomes of a fantasy world as well There are deeper and further explorations of the beings and peoples that now inhabit this earth, and I can t wait to see that expand even further.Overall, I read this book over a pleasant couple of days and enjoyed every moment I think I said it for Year One, but this series has rejuvenated my love of Nora Roberts She s truly stepping outside of her norm and delivering everything I ve ever enjoyed about her writing in a new and unique way.I can t

the book So it or less follows the age old fantasy hero s journey of a young person who is prophecied as a chosen one who must quest, get strong, train, and gain followers in preparation for a final confrontation with evil.Fallon is the chosen one She is, of course the daughter of the Max and Lana from the first book I loved the first book the pandemic, the crisis, and the narratives of all the different characters as they navigated their new post apocalyptic world This one did not have quite that sweeping feel Fallon was just an ok character in my book Let s face it, she is the chosen one So she is pretty, powerful, and strong But all her gifts and the plot of the story triumph over her personality She comes off as feeling like a placeholder.Much stronger is when we get to revisit the characters of the previous book They have settled into life in the aftermath of the Apocalypse of 14 years earlier They have built a functioning society in the New Hope Colony And yet we know that it is all very precarious because their little pocket of peace is just that, little The rest of the world is still very much a shambles.To me the book really picks up when Fallon finally meets the New Hope crew I loved it when Eddie met Fallon for the first time because of course he traveled with Max and Lana in the first book and had never known what happened to Lana after she ran after the 4th of July massacre at New Hope So get to witness him seeing Max s daughter out of the blue was a a great scene Also the scenes when Lana finally returns to New Hope were equally excellent.So a good installment Not as strong as the first in the series, felt a little place holdery but does set up for the final confrontation Here is hoping in the next book, Fallon as a grown up will have a little personality than Fallon the teenager had.Finally, listed to this on audio and Julia Whelan is seriously excellent as a narrator She can make her voice sound like that of an older person, or very

    3. I try not to make a habit of commenting on the dirty laundry of prominent authors that s not what this site is for but in light of the controversy surrounding this book and Children of Blood and Bone , I m going to have to side with Ms Roberts on this one Her response to the accusation is absolute gold and though I ve yet to read any of her books, I m going to be very quick to remedy that, starting with this series She s just shot to the top of my list of Ultimate Queens for that alone.


    4. This series has a continuous story arc and the books cannot be read as standalones If you haven t read the first book, Year One, don t start here.The story resumes years after the last book where Lana s child was identified as being The One and she escaped after the attack on New Hope That child, Fallon Swift, is approaching her 13th birthday, the age when Mallick, the visitor, promised he d return to the farm and take her away from her family for training As that date looms closer, Fall [...]
