#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts delivers the second book in her Three Sisters Island trilogy, novels of friendships made and hearts lost, of legends, lovers, and longing.

Ripley Todd just wants to live a quiet, peaceful kind of life. Her job as a sheriff’s deputy keeps her busy and happy, and she has no trouble finding men when she wants them—which, lately, isn’t all that often. She’s perfectly content, except for one thing: she has special powers that both frighten and confuse her—and though she tries hard to hide them, she can’t get them under control.

Distraction soon arrives in the handsome form of MacAllister Booke—a researcher who’s come to investigate the rumors of witchcraft that haunt Three Sisters Island. Right from the start, he knows there’s something extraordinary about Ripley Todd. It’s not just her blazing green eyes and her sultry smile. There’s something else. Something he can detect, but she’ll never admit. Fascinated by her struggle with her amazing abilities, he becomes determined to help her accept who she is—and find the courage to open her heart.

But before Ripley and Mac can dream of what lies in the future, they must confront the pain of the past. For Three Sisters shelters centuries of secrets—and a legacy of danger that plagues them still…

Read an Excerpt

It was small, charmingly quaint, and heads above the majority of accommodations he usually had on a research jaunt. He knew a lot of people thought he was a man more suited to a dark and dusty library. He often was, but he was just as much at home in a tent in the jungle, so long as he had enough battery power for his equipment.

I really enojoyed reading the Three Sisters Island Trilogy. I simply could not put the books down and ended up reading all three within a week. Nora Roberts really knows how to keep the story going!

Nora Roberts writes with great ease, she makes it easy to follow along and just get lost in the flow. This entire trilogy I read in a week, I was so engrossed that I couldn't put the books down. I liked how each book focused on one of the sisters but you never lost the other two in the story. If you like a bit of fantasy, magic and romance these books are for you.

As much as I enjoy Ms Roberts, I am beginning to find some of her characters overlapping, which is not surprising considering the number of books she has written. If you enjoy her 'In Death' series(written under the name JD Robb), you will find Ripley to be a clone of Eve Dallas! The story was ok, but seemed rather forced at times and the romance was just suddenly THERE, with very little development. I actually wondered why Mac didn't end up with Mia, there seemed to be more attraction and chemistry between them. Some of the dialog and situations also seemed to be replays of other works. Still good mind candy though.

Off the Massachusetts coast, Deputy Sheriff Ripley Todd loves her home, Three Sisters Island and its people, but rejects the legend that the island was once the home of three seventeenth century witch siblings with special powers. Deep down perhaps in her subconscious or pre-subconscious, Ripley knows the truth, but fears consciously embracing it.

Paranormal research scientist Dr. MacAllister Booke has concluded that ninety-eight percent of alleged otherworldly phenomena touching this mortal plane is delusions or cons. However that other two-percent keeps MacAllister excited about his work. He ferries to Three Sisters Island to evaluate the legend. Ripley, still rebounding from the weird Nell Channing Remington case (see DANCE UPON THE AIR), tries to avoid Mac. However, he finds her fascinating on two levels: that of a researcher who sees she contains something different but special and that of wanting a lifetime studying his beloved. However, Ripley resists on both fronts even if she is falling in love with her persistent suitor. First she must cope with an evil that wants to destroy her just the way it happened three centuries ago.

The second Three Sisters Island tale, HEAVEN AND EARTH, is a wonderful paranormal romance that showcases the outstanding bewitching talent of Nora Roberts to tell an enchanting tale. The story line never eases up whether it focuses on the paranormal or the romance as Ms. Roberts facilely intertwines the subplots into a magically charged novel. The lead couple charms the audience while the return of previous characters provides a feeling of returning to a wonderful place and also serves to whet the appetite of fans for Mia¿s story.

My fav series of noras

It's still rushed. I feel that you could intrigue the reader a lot more if you just slowed the story down, and describe some more philosophical stuff. Emotions, for example. Benjiro's gonna feel some heart-break, maybe some denial. Imagine yourself in the character's shoes, and dream up your personal reaction to occurences such as this. Overall, this is still good!

If you have read the first book of the series, you have to continue the trilogy. It just gets better as you read.

Elsewhere we're introduced to a reporter who's researching about Nell and wants to know what exactly happened that night from book 1. We learn more about the three women along with the Founders of the Island with each book. Near the end it got a little weird and insane but still an interesting showdown. Another good read.

I enjoyed the triology but the best was the first (Air) - spells, magic and a very evil man. The second, Earth, was disappointing, maybe I just didn't identify with character. The third, Fire, brought a surprise that tied in the three books nicely.
mary_colo More than 1 year ago

I really like dance upon air. However, It took me a little bit to get into this book. But once I finished it it was ok.
chelsea00 More than 1 year ago
I would have to say that I actually liked this book more that the first one. This book really helps to put the story together. The characters are easy to like and relate with. It is a wonderful book the way she mixes magic with every day events. If you are thinking about reading this do it. You won't be disappointed.

Couldn't not put it down the Whole series of Sister Island was very interesting and exciting
ilia_aoibheann More than 1 year ago
So when I read the first book of this series I thought I had to read the second. What would happen and how would it unfold? Ripley is the main character in this book and well I never saw her ending the way she did. She's strong but emotional at the same time. At times I just felt like screaming at her and calling her a spoiled brat. If I was a man I wouldn't have spent so much energy on a person like her. But then I'm not a guy and I'm glad my guy did play my game. I gave this book a 3 star because it was to bratty for me. It ran around the bush to many times. I expected more from her or the loves scenes, given she's such a willful character. The ending again was not exciting enough for me. Once I realized the series was not a series that was grearing up to something much bigger and better I figured I'd read the 3rd and find out what would be the 3rd and final main lady of the 3 sisters. Still a good book to read to pass the time. You can't skip this one though if your going to read the 3rd simply because the new love interest does tie in nicely to the story and you'll understand somewhat why he's there. ;)

Familiar with strong characters but still a good read

I loved this trilogy I couldn't put it down. Nora Roberts is really a great author that leaves you guessing and wanting more. I would recommend these books to anyone. Books by Nora Roberts are as romantic as I will read. The third book was a little slower to get into than the first two.

Deputy Sheriff Ripley Todd is content with her life and her role on Three Sister's Island. She has no intention of returning to the days when she could light a fire with her fingertips. Scholar MacAlister Booke is on the island to study it's legends, and he'd like a closer look at Ripley. Meanwhile, the evil that Nell faced in Dance Upon the Air is back - and it's Ripley's turn to face the dark.Solid hero and slightly irritating heroine. If you like Roberts, and you read the first installment, you'll want to find out what happens next.

I found Ripley a bit more annoying in this book than the previous, but still enjoyed the story.
shadowangel26 on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Loved the book.Especially Mac. He had me smiling the whole time.Ripley still upsets me with her...I have to do things my way but I forgive her.Good book. Somehow I think this is the weakest of the three. But they are ALL awesome.You should give the trilogy a try.

Ripley is hiding from her powers and struggling to come to terms with her attraction to MacAlister. They must both face the past to forge a future, but will the secrets and dangers of the island stop them. I can't wait for the last book!
