Publisher's Summary

What happens when the very gods depend on mortals for help? That's what three very different young women find out when they are invited to Warrior's Peak.

To Dana Steele, books and the knowledge they hold are the key to contentment. But now that search for knowledge must include the second key needed to release three souls held captive by an evil god.

She won't be alone, for she's formed fast friendships with two very different women. She can't allow herself to be distracted by the return of the man who broke her heart so long ago, for a danger beyond anyone's imagination is determined to keep her from completing her quest.

Absolutely Love this series!

I'm a big fan of Nora Roberts, especially when she writes as J.D. Robb. And because I loved the 'In Death' series, I wanted to give this 3 book series a go. I absolutely loved the first book, 'Key of Light' with Malory Price and Flinn, and just as much I loved Key of Knowledge with Dana and Jordan. What I've loved most is the narration by Susan Ericksen. She is absolutely brilliant! I just finished listening to this book last night and I can't wait to start #3 Key of Valor with Zoe and Brad!

Thanks, Nora. This series has it all!

STORY (fantasy/romance) - You can't go wrong with this series. There are great characters sweet romances, clever banter, all tied together with a mysterious quest. Dana, Mallory and Zoe must, in turn, find three keys to release three souls held captive by an evil god. This is Book 2, Dana's quest, and it's a wild one. She tangles with Cain, the evil god, and with sexy Jordan Hawke as well. Not just a sweet romance, lots more going on.

PERFORMANCE - I love Susan Ericksen. She always delivers a great performance. In this book I especially love her performances of Pitt and Rowena, two of the gods.

OVERALL - The books in this series should be listened to in order so you follow the story of the quest for the keys and the character development. That said, each book does a good job of bringing you up to speed and each story stands alone. There's a tiny bit of cursing, but it's pretty mild. There are also Nora's typical romantic, "classy" sex scenes, the kind that aren't explicit but you still can feel the passion and heat. Recommended for all romance readers.

Key of Knowledge

This review addresses a series, The Key Trilogy, by Nora Roberts. Book 1 Key of Life, Book 2 Key of Valor, Book 3 Key of Knowledge.

A Nora Roberts novel is usually a simple boy-meets-girl-romance with a story sprinkled throughout. Out of the box a tiny bit, The Key Trilogy is fantasy, i.e., witches and Celtic gods type Sci-Fi. A character even walks through a mirror as in Alice In Wonderland. But, Roberts does stick to her formula of chic-lit with the typical mawkish romance scenes *roll-eyes-hit-fast-forward* and an intriguing mystery.

All the characters are drop-dead-gorgeous, and much of the story is will-he-won’t-she romance. Two of the Celtic gods are personified by a handsome couple that own a mansion in a pretty town. They invite three women, complete strangers to each other, to complete a mysterious task (hint: involves keys, duh), ergo three books, one for each.

Anyway, if you like Nora Roberts, saccharine love scenes that do not fade-to-black, a bit of mystery, paranormal/SciFi, these will do.

Brilliance Audio, 2008, narration by Susan Ericksen (same reader as the In Death series) is great as usual. Each book is about 10 hours of listening.

Chic-lit fans enjoy!

Good story but not quite as good as the first.

I enjoyed this story but I don't think it's quite as good as the first.

That being said, it is a good story. It makes you want to listen to the third book. I'm looking forward to finding out what happens to Zoey during her quest to find the last key. ( I'm starting book three as soon as I finish this review) Lol.

As far as the narration goes the narrator did an excellent job with this book as well as the previous one. I haven't checked to see if she is narrating the third book but I sure hope so.

This trilogy is well worth listening too. I know you'll enjoy it. Another great set of stories by Nora Roberts.
