From Booklist

Every seven years for seven days the citizens of Hawkins Hollow go crazy. It all began 21 years earlier when three friends—Fox O’Dell, Caleb Hawkins, and Gage Turner—spilled their own blood on the Pagan Stone and released the demon once known as Lazarus Twisse. Ever since then, the three have worked together to limit the damage Twisse causes during his week long reign of terror. Recently, three women—Layla Darnell, Quinn, and Cybil Kinski—have joined their battle against Twisse, but it is going to take everything the six have if they are ever going to eliminate once and for all the evil that threatens Hawkins Hollow. After introducing her new paranormal-tinged series with Blood Brothers (2007)—the story of Cal and Quinn—Roberts cleverly continues her deliciously chilling Sign of Seven trilogy with a riveting story that focuses on Fox and Layla, both of whose gift for reading other people’s minds plays a key role in the six’s demon-defeating plans. --John Charles

This second book picks up the story two weeks later. Fox tries to help Layla hone her senses, so they can present a united front, and be as useful as Cal, Quinn, Sybil, and Gage is with their gifts. Since they sense things in the present, he knows how important it is for them to be at full strength when the demon next makes an appearance. Fox felt fortunate for the two-week lull in activity, but knew that had come to an end when he and Layla were attacked by a swarm of crows in the middle of Main Street. Layla got to see first hand the healing powers Fox possessed when his pecking wounds healed almost instantly.

As the group tries to figure out more about the puzzles from the past, the demon escalates the attacks. Instead of just focusing on one person, they are all in jeopardy at any given time. They realize that his strength is nothing like anything that they have ever encountered in the past, but that makes sense now that they know this cycle of seven is the final showdown.

The creepiness just gets better with each book. I enjoyed this second installment in the trilogy, and don't like having to wait until the end of the year for the conclusion with Gage and Sybil though. This book was Layla and Fox's story, but again as in the last book, all characters had a strong presence, which really adds a strong element.

I was so looking forward to this book and the wait seemed like forever. I did enjoy the first book, but this was soooooo slow. And, it took forever for anything to get going. Yes, we know the two main characters will fall madly, madly in love, but that didn't need 318 pages to happen. The first book had a lot of excitement, this was a romance novel with a bit of spooky-doings -- bit being the keyword. I will wait yet again for the next one to come out -- too long by the way, you forget what happens in the first one. I do love trilogies, but next time will wait and by all three at once. Hope the next one has more pizzaz.

This book was at least better than the first book, which isn't saying much. My favorite line is Gage's, "Are we going to talk it (evil demon boy) to death?" Well, apparently so, because, mostly, all our six happy friends do is sit and talk . . . and talk . . . and talk. Then there's a demon attack, and then they talk some more. The three women all have demon blood in them, and not a one of them turns evil. They discuss how it's a possibility, but does it happen? Of course not. The only interesting story will likely be Gage's in the third book. The other five characters are all nearly interchangable and I never really could make myself care about any of them. The dialog tends to be corny, unbelievable and hard to follow--who's talking, incomplete sentences. And I'm sorry, but there's not much plot--Evil demon boy does nasty stuff and guy #2 and girl #2 get together because it's their book, so they have to. I'll read the third book, but then I'm done. No more Nora paranormal romance stories for me.

Listened to the entire trilogy on audiobooks and love all Ms. Roberts's work, however this trilogy was at times just too weird and somewhat confusing in parts. Unlike other of her trilogys, the ending on the first two segments were more of a cliff hanger, and I don't care for those.

The narration for this particular segment was the worst I have ever listened to and I Iisten to audiobooks every day. This was delivered by a female narrator who sounded as though she had her hand over her mouth the entire time, and there was absolutely no change in inflection between characters so you had a hard time knowing who was talking. The entire narration was one monotone. The narrators on the first and third segment were done by males and were excellent. Narration here gets one star.

I have read everything Nora Roberts has written, even some of her very early work. Through it all I have seen the progression of her work as a product of her own evolution and growth as an author and the times surrounding her work. I have always enjoyed her voice, style, and imagination, but lately her work has become so much less than she is, I believe, capable of. The Sign of Seven trilogy is, in theory, an interesting and fun idea, however it just didn't reach early Nora Roberts standards. There was little, if any, character building or progression. The backdrop, the mystery, was very well done and engaging, however the protagonists were cardboard cutouts. You never get a sense of who they are, what they want, why they are together, or even what makes them different from the other characters around them. This is such a shame. Usually I do not write reviews as I much prefer the idea of letting everyone choose thier own books and love them or hate them on their own, but in this instance, in my sorrow and disappointment at the level of workmanship being put out by one of my favorite authors, I felt compelled to share my opinion.

We are long time fans of Nora's work. A new entry from her is a reason to buy a book, an intellectual, emotional and sometimes spiritual generator. Imagine our excitement when The Sign of Seven Trilogy hit the shelves. The plot in Blood Brothers had left us a little flat, but surely the plot would quicken and the characters would rise in The Hollow. Alas. We've been to The Hollow and it is only that. The formulaic writing, vapid characters and uninspired prose left us wanting - no more. We won't be helping ourselves to a third serving.
