"It began on New Year's Eve. The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed--and more than half of the world's population was decimated. Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river--or in the ones you know and love the most"-- Provided by publisher.

Check out the first book in the Chronicles of The One series before book 2 comes out later this year. With twists and turns on every page, Nora Roberts has captured the audience in this tale of intrigue.

I am a big fan of Nora Roberts. I don't mind waiting for months for her book as they are worth it.
I had a slow start with this book. But once I caught up, couldn't put it down.
Loved it.
Waiting for the next in series.

Wasn't sure about this book but I pushed on. Caught my interest and now can't wait for the next in the series!
When is book 2 available?

I was not sure about this new trilogy from Nora Roberts. It took me a couple stops and starts to really get into it, but once I did, I couldn't put it down. Definitely not for everyone. I felt the last third of the book was a little rushed and clearly a setup for the books to come. If you're a fan of older series like Chesapeake Bay or In the Garden, you might want to give this new series, Chronicles of the One, a pass or at least be warned that this is not a nice, contemporary love story. I can't say that Year One is a favorite, but it was intriguing enough that I'm looking forward to the books to come.

scary, I look for romance in her books so was disappointed with story line, occult, witchcraft, etc. After a few pages, the end for me

This was my first Nora Roberts book and I can see why it was compared to The Stand by Stephen King but it's a bit stranger than The Stand, and also not quite as good. Lots of characters, and neat magic, but it seems a little too pat.....Just read The Stand.

I usually really really like Nora Roberts books. However, stopped half way with this one. Can't be bothered to finish it. This was one of only a handful of books I have ever stopped reading midway. Too bad.
