The final Guardians Trilogy novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Bay of Sighs and Stars of Fortune.
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...

Bay of Sighs
Dr. Riley Gwin, the shape-shifting heroine of this dramatic Guardians Trilogy finale, will remind readers of Eve Dallas (star of Roberts's In Death series, written as J.D. Robb), right down to her whiskey-colored eyes but Roberts is so prolific that she can't help but repeat herself now and then, and her devoted fans won't mind. Riley, a brilliant, almost preternaturally competent warrior and archaeologist, doesn't bother with delicate wooing. This makes her the perfect foil for Doyle McCleary, a tortured 300-year-old Irish immortal, as she wears down his unwillingness to make personal connections. Their slow-burning romance on Doyle's ancestral lands is overshadowed by the mythology that binds the Guardians as a clan, and the easy camaraderie at which Roberts excels. But Doyle and Riley's search for the hidden Island of Glass while being hunted by the weakened goddess of death maintains suspense, and a fellow Guardian's grandmother, brought in to help heal Riley after she is gravely injured, provides wonderful local color.

The review is Wordy but worth it
As a disabled single mother of 2 I must watch my money carefully. My only indulgence is books. I swore I'd slow down to make the series last longer....
Never was it possible. Nora Roberts is as magical as her characters. She has given me peace of mind by taking her readers so far into the story all real world stresses are momentarily gone. As you can see it was released on 12/6/16. I am writing this on 12/7/16. I failed to keep my promise to myself to slow down not knowing that was an unachievable goal.
I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE every magical word of this trilogy and all she wrote before it. Most of all, being disabled with 2 diseases with no cure, it inspires me to write when inspiration is so hard to find in my life right now.
I cannot praise this enough and pray that others find as much joy as I did. And will again as I'll read this over & over & over!!!
Loved this series
I am a Nora Roberts fan - and this series did not disappoint. I was so sad when I finished the last book. I wish there were more in this series.
Stars of Fortune
Just finished Island of Glass, the 3rd in the trilogy. What an amazing work of incredible imagination! So captivating! Way to go, Nora!
