Year One
Year One | Nora Roberts
With one drop of blood, the old world is gone for ever. And in its place, something extraordinary begins... They call it The Doom - a deadly pandemic that starts on a cold New Year's Eve in the Scottish countryside. There's something mysterious about the virus and the way it spreads. As billions fall sick and die, some survivors find themselves invested with strange, unexpected abilities. Lana, a New York chef, has the power to move things and people with her will. Fred can summon light in the darkness. Jonah, a paramedic, sees snatches of the future in those he touches. Katie gives birth to twins, and suspects that she has brought fresh magic into the world, along with new life. But The Doom affects people differently. Along with the light, a dark and terrifying magic will also rise. As the remaining authorities round up the immune and the 'Uncannies' for testing, Lana, Katie and others flee New York in search of a safe haven. The old world is over, and Year One has begun.

Beginning this one today. My goal this year is to get the amount of books I own and have not read under control. This is a book that has been sitting on one of those piles for way too long. Looking forward to reading this one.

diovival Good luck! It's always tough resisting the urge to add more books to the books you've haven't read yet. 3d

Standard fair fantasy. With a bit more romance than usual. Quick read. Nothing flagrant. Good casual book to have on hand

This one was a page turner! It's the first in a trilogy. It has a lot of typical tropes of the post-apocalyptic fantasy genre but it's suspenseful and I liked all of the characters. The second book is just as good, and I'm reading the third now!

This was the first fantasy book I‘ve read by Nora Roberts. I‘ve always opted for her typical romances. I really liked the story and the magical realism. Some parts were a little slow, and I felt like some of the characters could have been fleshed out more, but over all I enjoyed it. I‘ll probably read the next book in the series.

Damn.. that's the exact word I said when I finished this book. Nora Roberts knows how to write a book. She knows how to keep a reader engaged and interested. She knows how to build characters and worlds. She does magic and love really damn well. I'm quite blown away by this book, it's kind of got me speechless a little bit, honestly. I figured it'd be good, I didn't expect it to be really damn good.

5 out of 5 stars!

I was getting into a little bit of a reading slump but this book has kept my interest entirely.

I've only read Nora Robert's Three Sisters Island Trilogy before this, but I loved that series and I can tell I'm going to love this one as well. She may become a favorite author of mine if I do.

ravenlee I haven‘t read the tagged book, but I love the Three Sisters Island trilogy. I also love the Gallaghers of Ardmore trilogy and the Brides quartet. I have found that some of her stuff feels repetitive, like she reuses characters especially, so I won‘t dive into all her backlog. 2mo

That would be so tough to have to leave all my books behind. I know food and clothes and all that survival stuff is way more important in this "end of the world" scenario..technically.. but my books! I'd probably try to stuff as many in a bag as I could still. (Which I'm sure we all know how heavy even just a couple of books can be lol so it'd obviously be a big pain on the back area trying to carry)

Following the story of a number of characters, we see what happens to the world when a virus starts killing people within 24-48 hours and spread no matter what efforts are put in place. At the same time, magic is fully reintroduced into the world with elves, fairies, witches, wizards and more coming into their own. Now in a world where billions have died, we see what happens when good and evil for both sides reshapes what was once the world.

I read this one a while back and for some reason forgot to review it. Surprising since I quite liked it. Nora Roberts dives into post apocalyptic/sci-fi fiction and does a great job of it. If you like Nora Roberts and/or are a fan of this type of fiction, this should be a book you will enjoy.

Take my last two reads, add them together, and you‘ve created this book. It‘s a post-pandemic adventure that has a magical element. Everyone‘s escaping the cities. Some people discover they have extra abilities—all those magical creatures are real now. If you‘ve survived The Doom. Sadly, prejudice and evil also survive. So good vs. evil, well told. Ordered book 2!

This is my kind of book! I know it's not going to be for everyone, but I loved it. It has been soo long since I've read anything by Nora Roberts! I recognized her style of writing like she was an old friend. Even though this is much different than what she usually writes, you still see her very clearly.
Yes, there is magic. Yes, the survivors have to choose between good and evil. There is also love, hope, and a great start to a series! 😍

I read 16 books this month.
124 books for the year (far far behind some of my fast reading friends🤷‍♀️).
The tagged book is the book I'm currently reading - and definitely enjoying!
My two 5 star ratings for this month were both for younger readers- 'The Secret Garden' and 'Hatchet'- both of which I will forever highly recommend to anyone. I also enjoyed 'Daisy Jones & The Six' and 'Along Came A Spider'.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Some diverse reading there, I love it! Great month. I'm only at 51 books for the year, so you're doing amazing in my eyes. Lol. 💕📚💕 6mo

This was my first ever Nora Roberts book, and I was not disappointed! At this point I have pretty much tired of traditional dystopian stories, but the biological/infectious basis of this story drew me in and I enjoyed it so much as someone who loves medicine and science. I enjoyed the perspectives given from different characters. Descriptions were vivid and I had great pictures of what was happening in my mind! I am looking forward to the sequel!

Have you ever gotten so used to an author's writing, it's easy to anticipate what's coming next? Nora Roberts has always been my go to romance/easy reading author. Every trilogy starts out with three men and three women. We all know how it ends. NOT THIS ONE! I am so pleasantly surprised. I couldn't put this book down. It has everything; Witches, fairies, seers, prophets, oh and the apocalypse!? I am so excited to read book 2 📚📚
Happy Reading!

This was between a pick and a so-so for me, and I'm still sorting out how I feel about it.

Imagine that there's a pandemic of such epic proportions that more than half the world population dies, and rapidly. At the same time, some people experience a strengthening of magic powers. What would the world look like? And what would happen if that first generation were to give birth to a child of magical prophecy?

Suet624 Is this the Nora Roberts who writes romance novels? 10mo
ScientistSam @Suet624 it is. It's a very different genre from most of her books, though she does have a few romances with magic in them. This is definitely not a romance! 10mo
Slajaunie I‘m going to have to read this one. As a teenager and young adult I loved romance and this was one of my favorite authors. I have not read one of her books in years. This one sounds right up my ally though. 10mo

I cannot describe how much I disliked this book, which is dissapointing as I have only read two of her trilogies (the Circle trilogy & the Gallaghers trilogy) & I really enjoyed them.
The childish devision between 'good' & 'evil' characters. Fairies already conveniently named stuff like 'Rainbow' & the baddies cackling like a house fell on their sister. The names for everything are terrible & I found it strange that only straight people survived.

I‘ve read Nora Roberts before but this was very different from what I‘m accustomed to. The first book in a dystopian trilogy that combines dark and gritty with elements of romance and fantasy; a somewhat odd combination that surprisingly worked well.
