The Hollow: The Sign Of Seven Trilogy

by Nora Roberts

May 6, 2008 | Mass Market Paperbound

The Hollow: The Sign Of Seven Trilogy is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
For Fox, Caleb, Gage and the other residents of Hawkins Hollow, the number seven portends doom—ever since, as boys, they freed a demon trapped for centuries when their blood spilled upon The Pagan Stone...

Their innocent bonding ritual led to seven days of madness, every seven years. And now, as the dreaded seventh month looms before them, the men can feel the storm brewing. Already they are plagued by visions of death and destruction. But this year, they are better prepared, joined in their battle by three women who have come to The Hollow. Layla, Quinn, and Cybil are somehow connected to the demon, just as the men are connected to the force that trapped it.

Since that day at The Pagan Stone, town lawyer Fox has been able to see into others’ minds, a talent he shares with Layla. He must earn her trust, because their link will help fight the darkness that threatens to engulf the town. But Layla is having trouble coming to terms with her newfound ability—and this intimate connection to Fox. She knows that once she opens her mind, she’ll have no defenses against the desire that threatens to consume them both...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Nora Robert Series! This is by far the best series by Nora Roberts, with this being my favorite book in the series. It keeps you captivated from the first page right up unitl the last. I would reccomend this book to any Nora Roberts fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It, But it's only the Second Book Greatnesssss. Loved it. Got a bit confusing but otherwise it was a good second book. Second books are usually the slowest of the trilogies. But Nora Roberts never fails to impress me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better and Better Ok, so this is the second book in the trilogy, and it's even better then the first one. All the characters are now introduced, the plot thickens, and like any really good book it leaves you asking questions, and leaves you wanting the answers to those questions. And yet again, at the end, I couldn't wait for the last book to come out... another page turner

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't wait for the third part of the trilogy My bookcase sags with Nora Roberts books - so I quess I could say I am a fan! Loved the first two books of this trilogy, and it is too bad that we have to wait so long for the third. But as usual it will certainly be worth the wait. My all time favourite was the Morrigans Cross Trilogy, and I would say that these two books now come a very close second.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bad, not great. Not as good as the first one, but if you have started this trilogy it would be worth reading. There was one event in the book (I won't spoil it by giving specifics) that I know was meant to show Fox as a kind person ( hint: it involves his sister), but it leaves me wondering what kind of person gives that up. A little disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nora Roberts knows how to write 'em!!! An excellent second book in the trilogy! I couldn’t ask for better. We’re taken back to Hawkin’s Hollow and its residents - good and bad. Some you love, some you love to hate. This book circled mostly around Layla and Fox - their relationship blossoms in this novel, and I loved how they got the feel of each other - thoughts and feelings. Working together, being together… You get more of their backgrounds, what Fox was like as a kid and growing up. Layla gets to chat with his parents - together and separately, and adores his family almost as much as him. It was a little annoying how it took nineteen out of twenty chapters for her to finally admit she was in love it him - to herself and out loud to Fox himself - but I think it was perfect. I wouldn’t have had it any other way. You still get time with Cal and Quinn, and you know, just like in the first novel, they love each other deeply. And wether Cybil and Gage want to admit it or not, I think they are very much stuck together. It’ll be interesting to see them bloom in the third novel. They are alike in a lot of ways - and neither would ever admit to it. In this novel, we’re taken back in time through Ann’s journals. You get a little better understanding of what they’re up against. The troubles escalate, fear is mounting, as well as their determination as a group to finally stop Twisse. I can’t wait to see what the last novel - which is going to drive me absolutely crazy seeing as the third and final book in the trilogy, The Pagan Stone, isn’t out until late November, early December ‘08. The six-month wait is going to kill me, LOL!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's Okay I like NR novels but this one only rated "okay" for me. The other trilogies were better like, Key and In the Garden. This one is slow going and yes, I could put the book down. Not a cliffhanger and not something worth staying up until the early hours of the morning. But since I've already read book 2, I'll have to continue reading book 3 (the Pagan Stone) when it comes out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! The first book was great but Nora takes this one to a higher leverl. Not only do we get a deeper look into the characters but she creates another level of fear in the reader of the 'dark being'. It is a great read and I garantee that you will not be able to put this book down unless forced to. I cant wait until December when the final book in the trilogy is released. Happy Reading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I loved both one and 2 and will be pre ordering #3 ASAP!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read I had ordered this back in March as part of my birthday present and got it last week. I could not put it down, it was a great second part to Blood Brothers and really allows you to see more into the story of the men and women. I enjoy reading Nora Roberts and this is one I recommend to anyone who is a fan of hers. The story was so good, she had me chasing demons and bad guys in my dreams the one night after reading a good chapter. I can not wait till the third book in December is released.

Read from the Book

PrologueHawkins HollowJune, 1994On a bright summer morning, a teacup poodle drowned in the Bestlers’ backyard swimming pool. At first Lynne Bestler, who'd gone out to sneak in a solitary swim before her kids woke, thought it was a dead squirrel. Which would've been bad enough. But when she steeled herself to scoop out the tangle of fur with the net, she recognized her neighbor’s beloved Marcell.Squirrels generally didn’t wear rhinestone collars.Her shouts, and the splash as Lynne tossed the hapless dog, net and all, back into the pool, brought Lynne’s husband rushing out in his boxers. Their mother’s sobs, and their father’s curses as he jumped in to grab the pole and tow the body to the side, woke the Bestler twins, who stood screaming in their matching My Little Pony nightgowns. Within moments, the backyard hysteria had neighbors hurrying to fences just as Bestler dragged himself and his burden out of the water. As, like many men, Bestler had developed an attachment to ancient underwear, the weight of the water was too much for the worn elastic.So Bestler came out of his pool with a dead dog, and no boxers. The bright summer morning in the little town of Hawkins Hollow began with shock, grief, farce, and drama.Fox learned of Marcell’s untimely death minutes after he stepped into Ma’s Pantry to pick up a sixteen-ounce bottle of Coke and a couple of Slim Jims.He’d copped a quick break from working with his father on a kitchen remodel down Main Street.
