Of Blood and Bone Reviews
A classic tale of good versus evil. If you like a bit of magic this series might be for you.
Nora Roberts writes a good fantasy/magical book and I have read many of her series before. This is book two in a series of three books.
In book one - The Doom... the doom is a virus/plague that kills most of the people on the earth. Few escape the doom. Civilisation is crushed and mass panic ensures. Within a few months life on earth is not as we know it. Ancient magic is released, good and evil and the b ...more
‘Of Blood and Bone’ is a treat. I am not saying that because I am a fan, but this book has such an amazing plot and diverse characters.
Fallon knows she is the ‘The One’. Now, she needs to hone her powers and rise into a smart, powerful individual. And that’s what Roberts delivers. Fallon is smart, confident, stubborn and always eager to learn.
We also get to meet characters from the first book, who have built a community for themselves. These people have dedicated their lives to protec ...more
I loved the first book in this series, but “Of Blood and Bone “ book Two in “Chronicles Of the One” trilogy was a disappointment to it. Hoping that the third book is better., 2.5 ⭐ ...more
Fantastic sequel! I cannot wait for the next installment in this series.
To all the people rating this book 1 star because Nora Roberts "PLAGIARISED" Tomi Adeyemi,
Nora Roberts is one of the most established ROMANCE authors for DECADES. She has written 100+ books and you're saying she COPIED Tomi Adeyemi's book Children of Blood and Bone??? It's laughable and embarrassing! These titles are common before Children of Blood and Bone exists.
Nora Roberts is a LEGEND. She can write any GENRE. Her books became my gateway to adult romance novels and I'll be forever thankful ...more

I am completely blown away by Nora’s newest venture. Chronicles of the One is a perfect blending of post-apocalyptic dystopia and epic fantasy. The fact that Nora, after decades of writing romance laced with tendrils of the supernatural, would take such a giant leap into writing a radically different story, is commendable. The fact that she not only pulled it off by absolutely nailed it commands respect. She has mine.

Must read series! (buddy read with Heather and Shannon)
I never read this, and probably will never get around to it. My interest - or lack thereof - for reading this book is not why I'm shelving it.
I'm familiar with Nora Roberts - her books are romances, fairly stereotypical, but she dares to venture into historical, fantasy and thriller sections, which is more than most famous writers of the genre do (e.g. Danielle Steel and Sandra Brown). She didn't start the trend of romantic suspense, but she largely influenced it and was - still is - one of its ...more
