From the Author
Roarke's tale was originally plotted as a Western romance but in the middle as the characters came to life, he and his brothers, their lives and the dangers they face shifted into the paranormal. Plus...who can say no to five devilishly handsome Irish brothers, all of whom happen to be witches?
Roarke is the first but as the series continues each brother's trials overlap even as they each are the focus of their own book until the grand conclusion...and the final showdown with not only the evil force seeking to destroy them but also a much darker evil that comes from much closer.

This isn't a story of simple magic, but a much darker tale where the malevolent Sebastian seems to start with all the advantages and all the history. The brothers have to heal from wounds of the past, while fighting present peril and learning not to fight each other all the time. Banter round the breakfast table is very nicely done. Magic and reality are molded in a pleasing blend. And true love wins through. The story's a fun and intriguing read, as long as your inner editor stays quiet, and a fine introduction to the series.
I felt especially sorry for Roarke's troubles with the Walshes. As for why, you'll just have to read it.
The magic in this tale is a major part of the story. In fact, it is the story, and the way that Rose works it in comes off as genuine. The magic (or the Craft as it is sometimes called) seems to be joined with heredity in the world of Celtic Evil (as is mentioned--a hereditary witch). This lends the fact that these brothers are all a part of The Five more validity.
It might appear that this is just another 'good vs. evil' story, but it is really more about family ties and that's what makes it work.
I found the backstory about the island quite well developed and it is a vital part of the plot so I'm glad it was expanded upon as the novel went on.
All the brothers have their specific personalities but somehow manage to work it out when it counts. I think this is the way that brothers are supposed to act, but speaking from experience, they do not always act this way. I'm glad Rose portrayed the brothers as fighting sometimes, even in the midst of critical moments. After all, it only takes one of The Five to fall.
It was a special treat that Rose included bits of the brothers' native language in the book. Thanks to her I am now familiar with some new phrases.
As this is the first book in the series I am anticipating more. Hopefully the story will be explored to an even greater degree.
I was looking forward to this series, but can't find the writing compelling enough to want to finish the series.
