Year One
Year One | Nora Roberts
With one drop of blood, the old world is gone for ever. And in its place, something extraordinary begins... They call it The Doom - a deadly pandemic that starts on a cold New Year's Eve in the Scottish countryside. There's something mysterious about the virus and the way it spreads. As billions fall sick and die, some survivors find themselves invested with strange, unexpected abilities. Lana, a New York chef, has the power to move things and people with her will. Fred can summon light in the darkness. Jonah, a paramedic, sees snatches of the future in those he touches. Katie gives birth to twins, and suspects that she has brought fresh magic into the world, along with new life. But The Doom affects people differently. Along with the light, a dark and terrifying magic will also rise. As the remaining authorities round up the immune and the 'Uncannies' for testing, Lana, Katie and others flee New York in search of a safe haven. The old world is over, and Year One has begun.

This was my first Nora Roberts book. It was okay. I thought the plot was a bit stilted and found it a bit too romancy for me. In light of current events, though, reading about a pandemic was interesting. Depressing too.

ItsAnotherJen I loved this one! 5d

📚📚📚 for this book. Written in 2016, it starts with a mysterious plague that wipes out nearly half the worlds population overnight but something Uncanny also happens and humans start to develop magical abilities - some good and other not. Follows a couple small groups with one main lead by the end. Simple writing easy to read, characters slightly one dimensional plot has potential.

Anyone else doing the #readingroberts challenge from Mara (bookslikewhoa on YouTube)? This is just for Year One so far 🤣🤣 Also I'm enjoying the Nora Roberts books I've read this year; this is the first time I've read her work and so far so good! #robertsreadathon #noraroberts #yearone

What‘s a series you really really want to finish this year. For me it‘s the year one trilogy from Nora roberts. I including the awakening because I believe it ties into the trilogy somehow. This is one of my favorites trilogies but I‘ve only finished book one and two. So I‘m really hoping I can finish book three sometime this year.

Jess861 I'm hoping to get through Mistborn. I really enjoyed the first book. 5mo
Curlybookowl @Jess861 I‘ve heard that series is amazing 5mo

Nora Roberts does pandemic fiction!

Of course with this being Nora Roberts it is not a straightforward pandemic, sure we have the “plague “ that wipes people out but then we also have the uncanny people with special abilities for dark or light.

Nora Roberts does evil so well and the in the next sentence good triumphs again. Oh and don‘t forget the romance even at the end of the world there is time 4 love

Interested to see where the series goes.

This combined all of the elements of my favourite genres, kept me on the edge of my seat and never let me catch my breath. I adored all that this book was even while it broke my heart.

First one of the year done! Well I started it last year and finished it today. I like apocalyptic stories and even though the beginning of this hit a little too close too home after this year, I really enjoyed it. The supernatural part was a little surprised but it added something different to the story. I am on to the 2nd one! #audiobook #scribd #apocalyptic

Read this during the shut down back in March. It had very ‘this could be tomorrow‘ vibes. Except for the magic part. But then again, who knows...?

“They returned the rental car, infecting the clerk and the businessman who rented it next. They infected the porter who took their bags when tips exchanged hands. By the time they reached and passed through security, the infection had passed to an easy dozen people. “

I will be honest, I don't research books before I read them. Sometimes I don't even read the back. I ONE HUNDRED PERCENT judge by the cover. So I didn't expect the immediate hit from this book. About a pandemic. That spreads internationally with a high death toll... Too soon? Might be too soon. #booknerdreads

My mom loaned me this book and it‘s the first Nora Roberts book I‘ve read. There‘s a pandemic component which I thought might be too much to read about and be living through, but the book takes such a different turn with fantasy and magic that it didn‘t bother me. It was a quick read and I‘ll be reading the next two in the series.

The first pages of this book read as if it had been recently written. It really shows how much we have not learned from our past. It shows the ugly that can happen if people do not learn how to come together. It shows the stupid things people do when they are afraid especially when they are afraid of someone different from them. But it also shows the good, the love, the laughter, the connections that can be made when people come together.

While the rest of the country stocks up on toilet paper, the Litsy community makes emergency library runs... you know, because we don‘t have any books on our shelves at home, right?! 😉

Branwen We have our priorities straight, that's for sure! 😁👍📚💕 2y
TheBookAddict RIGHT!!! I made sure to hit the library sale early this morning before people bought all the good stuff. 2y
MaGoose You've got that right!! I have books that I don't have shelf space for and that are stacked all over the place - even in the garage - yet I'm still looking for more books to get me through this crisis. 🤣 🤪 2y
TheBookKeepers 💯 our library is closed weekends, so we went Monday morning and got a big stack! Then libraries announced at 11pm Monday that they‘d be shut down Tuesday and until further notice! Close call but I got my stack!! Meanwhile...my toilet paper needs refilled soon 🤣😅😅 2y

I really enjoyed this book. I have only read a few of Roberts' books in the past and this was so different from her other books. I really like storyline of people with powers and good vs evil, and how the main character, Lana, learns to use her powers. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.

Really enjoyed this - some parts were quite violent but it wasn‘t over the top. Had a lazy breakfast this morning so I could finish it - now running late for my volunteer work, oopps. @Ddzmini you were right - I‘m going to the library as well to get the sequel!

Mrs_B TRAGEDY. The library catalogue said the next book was in but the librarian and I couldn‘t find it on the shelves. She suspects it‘s been stolen. Who would do such a thing from a library? ☹️ 2y

This one was a page turner! It's the first in a trilogy. It has a lot of typical tropes of the post-apocalyptic fantasy genre but it's suspenseful and I liked all of the characters. The second book is just as good, and I'm reading the third now!

This was the first fantasy book I‘ve read by Nora Roberts. I‘ve always opted for her typical romances. I really liked the story and the magical realism. Some parts were a little slow, and I felt like some of the characters could have been fleshed out more, but over all I enjoyed it. I‘ll probably read the next book in the series.
