Recent times have led many to feel the world as we know it is ending and wonder if they'd survive and how. In her apocalyptic tale with supernatural twist, Roberts provides a feminine and feminist dystopia where love still matters.

Page by page I was drawn into the lives of each character. Roberts does it again! Balancing the normal and the magical. Devastating heartache. Love that knows no bounds. All surrounding "The One."

I was surprised with a few of the twists in this book! Usually her books follow a pattern, but she changed it up a bit with this one! I read everything she writes, and this one is now my #2 Nora Roberts book.!

Wow!!!! I have never been a fan of post apocalypse fiction before, but as usual, Nora Roberts writes so well I could not put the book down. Very different from all the other books she has ever published. It is darker and sadder, but also full of hope, joy and the will of the human species to overcome. Loved the characters. The only issue I have is having to wait a year for the second book. Too long!!! Lol,

Year One by Nora Roberts is the 1st book in her new Chronicles of the One trilogy. I am a big fan of Nora Roberts/JD Robb, and I absolutely have love every one of her trilogies. Year One is a post apocalyptic dystopian, with a bit of fantasy, and a totally different type of storyline book for Nora, but there are some similarities. Year One begins with a family on vacation, a hunting that kills something more than a bird, and the start of a lethal virus (The Doom) that will destroy most of the world. In a short period, 80% of the world’s population will die, leaving the survivors that are immune to the virus. We meet along the way, three sets of characters, who will travel to find others in a world that is deep in devastation, desperation and darkness. In a new beginning, we will always find the dark (evil) and the light (good), that will divide and separate all. Magic (witches, elves, etc) will also arise, causing another division among those with newfound powers that are used for good, and those who are evil and want to hurt others, and the humans with no power at all, bent on destroying all magic, and those who have it. Max and Lana is a married couple, who have some magic ability that they continue to learn about, and they are good people. Together they will leave New York to find a safe place to live and find others. Arlys and Fred (she is an elf) work at the radio station, and leave together, as word comes that they will be in danger. Rachel and Jonah, both medical professionals, who also leave to find safety, along with Katie, who just gave birth to twins. Along the way in this dark and doom, they will all eventually meet to start with about 300 others a land they call New Hope. When Lana becomes pregnant, everyone is beginning to feel comfortable, with hope. But just when the light shines beautifully, evil rears its ugly head; everything changes, and the last quarter of the book becomes centered on one person. The ‘One’ who is destined to be the savior of this new world; who must stop the darkness that threatens to destroy them all. This is where Roberts changes the game, and throws us for a loop, as she rarely ever does this in her other trilogies. There are surprises, twists and deaths we never saw coming. The only thing I worry about is that I want to know what happens to wonderful great characters we got to know during the majority of the book, but were not part of it in the last quarter. I am holding my breath to see where Nora will take us in the next book. Bravo to Nora Roberts for giving us a fantastic start to a fabulous breathtaking, emotional, tense and exciting storyline. I am hoping we do not have to wait too long for the next book, as I am already on pins and needles. Year One proves that Nora Roberts can write anything at all, and give us a fantastic story. I strongly sugges that you read Year One.

It was a slow start for me, getting into the book. But then, when I came up for air, it was dark outside, I was hungry and hours had past. Then I knew, I would love this story. It held everything I want in a book and the world building is brilliant. I cried with Arlys, feared the Purity Warriors with Lana, hated Wirk and Alegra, and hoped for a better world. It’s frightening that there always will be some trying to hurt, steal, destroy and hate. Even if there is almost nobody left and there is plenty of room to give each other space. Why is it so difficult to get along, accept, share, be peaceful? Is is fear? And, as it is so often, all this in the name of God. I hope, we never have to find out, how close this book comes to the truth. Brilliant! I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thanks to NetGalley and Little, Brown Book Group UK!

Roberts takes us into a world gone wrong. The theme throughout this story is survival in the aftermath of a deadly pandemic. It makes one wonder about their own ability to survive such a calamity. She creates characters that do well and others who fail. I look forward to reading the remainder of this series to find out how her characters fare through this dystopian world.

The story was superb and the characters were wonderful. This was the best book I have read in ages. The war between light and dark ; good and evil was very well presented. Hope there is book 2 coming.

I usually get caught up in Nora Roberts (and J. D. Robb) books immediately. Year One was a little slower. The great number of characters to get acquainted with and the terrifying story that is revealed is emotionally draining. I think I broke into tears too many times to mention but I am definitely hooked. I've been reading her books longer than I wish to say and I have no intention of stopping any time soon.

Although she has written of magic and many of her romances have a murder/suspense element - and certainly her J. D. Robb mysteries have violence - this is something different and darker from the queen of contemporary romance. With a plague decimating their home in New York City, looting and murder on the rise, and dark elements of magic rising with the death toll, Lana and Max flee the city. The story bounces from several groups of survivors and the skills they develop on the run from unfriendly types until they meet up...think bits of The Stand plus The Walking Dead with black magic replacing the undead Walkers as the thing to run from. I was a little unsure at Roberts tackling something like this, but shouldn't have doubted a writer of her talents. I devoured it in less than a day and now have to wait for book 2!
