Setting: Three Sisters Island

Sensuality: 7

A stunningly beautiful, powerful witch who possesses the gift of Fire, Mia Devlin locked her heart away when Sam Logan rejected her youthful love and left Three Sisters Island. Eleven years later, Sam returns to the island to claim Mia and take over his family business, the Magick Inn. Passion still burns between them, but Mia refuses to trust the man who once tore her life apart, leaving her grieving and alone. It's imperative that they find a way to resolve their thorny, complicated relationship for time is running out and the deadline for breaking a centuries-old curse is near. Mia has the steadfast aid of her two sisters of the heart, powerful witches that rule Air and Earth, but without Sam's help, even Mia's powers may not be enough to keep her alive until the deadline. And unless Mia makes the right choice about her heart and Sam, evil may win in the final confrontation, destroying all their lives and Three Sisters Island as well.

Face the Fire is the third and last book in bestselling author Nora Roberts's trilogy of witches, magic, and an age-old curse that began with Dance upon the Air and Heaven and Earth. This novel boasts a vivid seaside setting, sympathetic characters, and enough details about the practice of magic to intrigue the most cynical of readers. This is Roberts at her best. Don't miss it. --Lois Faye Dyer

From Publishers Weekly

The final installment in Roberts's Three Sisters trilogy (after Heaven and Earth), which is set on a New England island called Three Sisters, lacks the compelling emotional drama that has won her such a loyal readership. After being abandoned by her lover 12 years before, white witch Mia Devlin has developed a charming bookstore and cafe, a spectacular garden and a close circle of friends, all of whom share her involvement in the Craft. Only an age-old curse mars Mia's idyllic existence and threatens the future of the island itself. Then her former flame, Sam Logan himself a witch returns to the island, determined to win Mia back. The paranormal elements that tastefully flavored a number of Roberts's earlier titles is a bland additive here, creating the book's only suspense and filling scene after scene with discussions and manifestations of magic. Those who don't believe in spells, charms or paranormal wolves may find it hard to enjoy this story and the hokey chanting that comes with it ( No one who passes now need fear. You can do no more harm here ). As always, Roberts's prose is gracefully styled, and her storytelling is deft despite the weak material. But with perfect jobs, perfect homes, perfect hair and the force of the Craft behind them, Mia and company are barely human enough to move the reader's heart.

The story is great and the characters are interesting.
Stephanie D
I usually read these books back to back and all I want is to see how it all ends and make sure that they all get their happily ever after.
All three are page turners....keep you up reading just one more hour + books.

Mia Devlin is a strong beautiful witch that owns a bookstore/café on Three Sisters. She keeps buried a deep hurt from her childhood when the love of her life, Sam Logan, left her broken just out of high school.

Sam is back, and he is determined to win Mia back. He knows what a mistake he made leaving. He was so young, and the powerful emotions she brought out in him scared him, so he ran. Sam is also a witch, and he is willing to use whatever it takes to gain Mia's trust.

Mia and Sam must find their way back to each other, or they will not have the strength for the upcoming fight of their lives.

A great finish to the series. I liked that Mia was fire and Sam was water - fire & ice!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Face The Fire" is the final book in Nora Roberts' Three Sisters Trilogy, and unfortunately provides a whimper of a finale instead of the expected bang. Her first book, "Dance Upon The Air" is excellent. The second, "Heaven And Earth" is slightly weaker, but well worth reading. This novel, which should have been her strongest, as Mia, her protagonist is the most powerful and interesting of the sister witches, falls into cliche and repetition. It is just plain boring and a big disappointment.
Three Sisters is a small, rocky island off the coast of Massachusetts. Legend has it that the island was once a part of the mainland. Back in the late 1600s, during the Salem witch trials, three sisters, good witches all, known as Fire, Earth and Air, conjured the island and made it a haven against persecution. Unfortunately, the sisters did not fare as well as their island. All three were doomed by unfortunate relationships and a misuse of power. Before the last sister died she cast a spell to keep the island safe for 300 years. At that time she prophesied a reunion of three sisters, descendants of the original three, who would join together to redeem their ancestors, right the wrongs of the past and save their home from destruction.
Mia Devlin, owner of the successful bookstore-cafe on Three Sisters Island, is a strong sorceress, of the white witch variety. She lost the love of her life, Sam Logan, when he left her without warning or explanation ten years before. Mia has closed herself off from intimacy to avoid the fate that destroyed her ancestress 300 years earlier. Sam returns to the island looking to renew his relationship with Mia and runs into a brick wall. Although the chemistry between the two sizzles, Mia is determined not to let Sam back into her heart.

First 2 books = fabulous.
Face The Fire:
* Too much stuff thrown into one book.
* Sam Logan goes from being hardcore businessman to mega-Pagan Witch man. Too much bi-polarity there for me to get into him. Not as likable as other heroes because of this.
* Pacing seemed off (probably because Nora was desperately trying to tie up loose ends).
* Mia and Sam get back together WAY too quickly for someone nursing a heartache as long as she has.
* Ending is not the tumultuous explosion I had wanted, expected, perhaps even needed.
This book didn't deliver . . . great build up in the previous 2 books, but Mia's story (which was the one I had wanted to read the most) I found seriously disappointing. The plot was only so-so, and the writing seemed a bit choppy and jarring at times.
Very sad for me!
happy reading!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The third of 3 books deals with Mia Devlin, super sexy (yet strangely virginal) witch extraordinaire and her long lost love Sam. He left ten years ago ostensibly because he was afraid of all the tales that they were fated to be together, so he wanted to screw about 50% of New York before coming back to her.

Mia is understandably cold to him but quickly loses all the spunk she's build up in the last two books and succumbs to this man who is little more than a dark and moody slut. She crumbles like a very dumb and weak woman, the kind you saw in romance novels of the 1970's and 1980's, and from the way Roberts wrote the dialogue I expected some bodice ripping any time, which never came.

Nora Roberts couldn't even think of a new enemy so she brings us the insane imprisoned ex-husband of the heroine from book one (Dance Upon the Air), and now he has magical powers that tap into the dark side of the island!

Sadly, the side tale of the Three Sisters of centuries ago that the island is named for is more interesting than this love story. At least the old legend is emotionally taut and satisfyingly wrapped up.

Sam is a cardboard hero; tall, dark, arrogant and pushy with little human emotions in him. Mia was a fiery sexy heroine, but she is reduced to virginal and naïve status, except when she is flirting with the hero of book two (Heaven and Earth) who is married to her best friend. That really creeped me out.

Still, if the first two hooked you, you'll want to read this story. If you haven't started the "Three Sisters" novels, try her "Tears of the Moon" "Jewels of the Sun" etc. stories for a much better plot about 3 people bound to fall in love with new lovers and old friends to break an ancient curse.
