Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The first in my paranormal romance series about the Fitzgerald brothers, it's also my first foray out of the genre of action/adventure.
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.

Format: Paperback
If your inner editor will struggle with grammar and word-choice issues, Celtic Evil is probably not the book for you. But the story has more to offer the interested reader. The author creates a fascinating cast of characters in the five Rourke brothers, each differently skilled and differently called to return to their ancestral home. Their parents died fifteen years previously and the boys have lived separate lives. But evil is rising and they need to learn to trust each other and their friends if they're to defeat it.

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 was excited to read this book, it sounded like such a good story line. . And I like the fact that it continued with 4 other books about the other brothers. But once I started reading it, it was to crowded. There are way too many characters, its too fractured. I kept thinking, I thought this book was about Roarke? Then finally it started to be about him, but it just rambled on and on about him and his "friend" Jessica. And the "friend" part really irratated me, we get that they were friends before they were lovers, why keep saying "my friend, his friend, her friend?" It just got to be really irritating and boring to me, I skimmed the last third of the book, just couldnt take it anymore. If you want to read a series about magic, read Nora Roberts trilogies. Maybe she has spoiled me, this book just was not written very well. I wont be reading the other four.

This reminds me of Harry Potter. Those educated readers who understand and enjoy mystical stories with standup characters will definitely enjoy this book. From what i've read (and i'm not into witches or deamons) it is extremely well written. I rate this with a '5' because of the story-line and character portrayal. I highly reccommend this book. Frank

Format: Paperback
I found the premise of this novel extremely intriguing. Five brothers, all former Irish singers, are linked together against an evil force.

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.

Format: Paperback
I was very disappointed in this novel. Other reviewers talked about the grammar issues, which are very distracting, but it goes beyond that. The idea of the story is very appealing, but I can't agree with the reviewer who called the author a good story-teller who lacks some grammar skills. I found the telling of the story clunky - the same words are used over and over again to describe certain characters. The story lacked color and good descriptive language to help you picture the scenes. Plot-timing is odd-at one point it's breakfast and by the end of the scene it's time for bed with nothing in the description of the scene that would make you think that the events in the scene would have taken an entire day. Characters are constantly stepping in and out of rooms - you can barely remember what room they're in, who's in the room, and why they're there. Past events are alluded to without enough information about them to help you understand what actually happened in the past. In one scene where a damsel is in immediate distress (and everyone in the story knows it), two of the characters take the time to hug and kiss and comfort each other before going off to try to figure out how to save the other charachter who is in a nearby room.

I was looking forward to this series, but can't find the writing compelling enough to want to finish the series.
