I was not sure about this new trilogy from Nora Roberts. It took me a couple stops and starts to really get into it, but once I did, I couldn't put it down. Definitely not for everyone. I felt the last third of the book was a little rushed and clearly a setup for the books to come. If you're a fan of older series like Chesapeake Bay or In the Garden, you might want to give this new series, Chronicles of the One, a pass or at least be warned that this is not a nice, contemporary love story. I can't say that Year One is a favorite, but it was intriguing enough that I'm looking forward to the books to come.
