     Talk to me about humor. Cian has got an excellent sense of humor and many a times you wouldn't realize that you are smiling. This is the first book in the Circle trilogy and unlike Nora's other series this one can't be read alone. The story continues in the succeeding parts. This book focuses on Hoyt-Glenna romance apart from the battle, of course! The witch and the sorcerer, isn't that interesting? When I say that Nora's characters are everywhere, I mean it! They are present even in the twelfth century Ireland. We all have heard about legends. Some of us even believe in them. My grandma definitely believed in them. Anyway! Think of this book as something that happened and now is a popular legend. Ireland is famous for its legends and folklore and Nora experiments with them in this book. She plays with the myths. Maybe it's a lot to take in but then supernatural stuff never fails to intrigue me.
