Blood Magick by Nora Roberts
Series: The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy #3
Genres: Paranormal Romance
County Mayo is rich in the traditions of Ireland, legends that Branna O’Dwyer fully embraces in her life and in her work as the proprietor of The Dark Witch shop, which carries soaps, lotions, and candles for tourists, made with Branna’s special touch.
Branna’s strength and selflessness hold together a close circle of friends and family—along with their horses and hawks and her beloved hound. But there’s a single missing link in the chain of her life: love…
She had it once—for a moment—with Finbar Burke, but a shared future is forbidden by history and blood. Which is why Fin has spent his life traveling the world to fill the abyss left in him by Branna, focusing on work rather than passion.
Branna and Fin’s relationship offers them both comfort and torment. And though they succumb to the heat between them, there can be no promises for tomorrow. A storm of shadows threatens everything that their circle holds dear. It will be Fin’s power, loyalty, and heart that will make all the difference in an age-old battle between the bonds that hold their friends together and the evil that has haunted their families for centuries.

We come to the end of this series and I must say there was so much emotion in this book. There were several times I wanted to cry. Here we have Branna and Finbar fighting with the others to end Cabhan. Branna and Fin history together and have loved one another for years. They don’t think they can be together because Fin bears Cabhan’s mark. That mark has brought a lot of pain, grief, and years apart. This book takes us on such a ride.
The one thing I wasn’t crazy about was the end. I felt that it just ended. After everything we have been through with these people I would have liked to gotten an epilogue or something with look in the future. Just something, for me it felt incomplete. Some closure was missing. I would have loved to know that Sorcha found her Daithi again in the great beyond. Their love was so strong and that leads me to the one other thing.
As I’ve said before I would love to have stories of the first three and their love stories. Possibly even more of Sorcha and Daithi. For the few things that bothered me I loved this book and hated coming to the end of this series. One thing this series has proved is that love is the strongest magic there is.
