To recap the trilogy: Nell came to Three Sisters Island, off the coast of Massachusetts, looking to escape an abusive husband (a la Sleeping with the Enemy). She found a sisterhood of witches with Ripley and Mia and true love with Ripley's brother. In the second installment, Ripley, the witch with the biggest chip on her shoulder needed to chill out. She found true love with a witch researcher. In Face the Fire, it is Mia's turn to find her true love. The only problem is, her true love is someone who walked away from her many years ago, leaving deep scars and a toughened exterior. While I appreciated the fact Mia's story ran through the earlier installments, I was disappointment when she decided she could have a sexual relationship with long lost love, Sam. Like the other plots in the Three Sisters Island trilogy, there is an element of evil that must be vanquished before anyone can live happily ever after. ( )

Nora Roberts books are obviously fairly formulaic but I still find them to be a good Sunday afternoon in the winter or sunny summer day beach read. I think her books are at their best when they are part of a series so she has a chance to develop the characters and story a bit more. This series is one of hers that I think works the best. ( )

Loved this last book in the series. Thought the last battle would be a little more...more...well more. Seemed kind of tame with all the lead up they had to it but still a good book.

Though this series as a whole is a favorite for me, Mia's (and Sam's) story is my pick of the three. While Mia, from the first book, has always come across as wise, sassy and fiercely protective of those she loves, it was in this book that we come to realize just how carefully she has constructed the protection around her own heart. Sam's return to the island not only serves to knock against the shield a time or two, but also, as a male witch, makes for an interesting perspective in their circle.

Everything the circle has fought for since Nell came to the island, everything fate has been leading to for three hundred years, has led to Mia's cliffs and a final showdown that will call everything they have against the growing dark. This is truly a book that doesn't let up until the final page, and despite the many, many times I've reread it, it's a joy each time. ( )

Really loved this true series: same characters continuing theme. Mia’s life is explored more now and we find why she hurt so much. First book was best at introducing. Nell and her cooking, newness to witchcraft played into this story. This book continues with her stalker ex-husband as a catalyst. Riley, who bugged me as a character in 2nd book, was so much more likable and caring and her husband Mac added interesting ideas. Lulu continued to add humor and danger. Finally find out that Sam, also a witch, wasn’t as bad as originally portrayed although still had the macho guy attitude but learned as story progressed. Mia was stubborn, strong willed but also so concerned for everyone else. Liked how she handled Sam’s assumptions. Keeping the circle of witches power played a big part. Ending provides all answers.
