The Choice excerpt

I would have sworn on all that I hold holy that I posted the excerpt from The Choice in September. I included it in the newsletter for Desperation in Death and the next step on my to-do list is to post here 48 hours later.

But when I saw a question about it on FB, I realized — to my horror — I hadn’t.

Anyway, the official copy reads:

Breen Siobhan Kelly grew up in the world of Man and was once unaware of her true nature. Now she is in Talamh, trying to heal after a terrible battle and heartbreaking losses. Her grandfather, the dark god Odran, has been defeated in his attempt to rule over Talamh, and over Breen―for now.

With the enemy cast out and the portal sealed, this is a time to rest and to prepare. Breen spreads her wings and realizes a power she’s never experienced before. It’s also a time for celebrations―of her first Christmas in both Talamh and Ireland, of solstice and weddings and births―and daring to find joy again in the wake of sorrow. She rededicates herself to writing her stories, and when his duties as taoiseach permit, she is together with Keegan, who has trained her as a warrior and whom she has grown to love.

It’s Keegan who’s at her side when the enemy’s witches, traitorous and power-mad, appear to her in her sleep, practicing black magick, sacrificing the innocent, and plotting a brutal destruction for Breen. And soon, united with him and with all of Talamh, she will seek out those in desperate need of rescue, and confront the darkness with every weapon she has: her sword, her magicks―and her courage…

Here is Chapter One.

The Choice is in stores November 22. So truly, not that long now.

I apologize for the delay and will pay more attention to my newsletter to-do list going forward.

And if you want to catch all the excerpts as they happen (i.e., not depend on my to-do lists), please sign up for Nora’s News — the sign up is at the bottom of the home page on both the Nora Roberts and JD Robb websites

  1. Oh my goodness! I’ve listened to/read the first two books at least 10 times each. (NOT an exaggeration) I’ve fallen in love with the characters and I am so excited for The Choice. After reading the first chapter, I’m so excited I can’t sleep. I’ve been counting down the days. I listen to at least one chapter every night and my wife laughs when I’ll recite the line along with the narrator because I know so much of it by heart! Nora’s books about the paranormal, fantasy, magicks are the BEST!! My only concern is what will I have to look forward to after The Choice? I would love to be an early reader of some books and provide feedback, if ever needed. NORA ROBERTS is the BEST!!!

    1. I’ve listened to them both just a much! I never get tired of this story!

  2. Wow, that’s a powerful start! Not to worry, Laura, in fact I think I like getting it this late. It nudged me into getting out the first two books for a refresh, since the old brain cells to cling like they used to. Really looking forward to it!

  3. I haven’t started this yet but I have read (listened to) awakening and am just a few chapters into becoming. I mostly wanted to say the name of the dog ‘Bollocks’ gives me a childish giggle every time I hear it, thank you 😉
