I can say that I have been a Nora Roberts fan for a long time and I was not disappointed with this series, this being the last book out of the three I was not sure how the ending would go and yet it was the perfect ending, I hope you give this series a chance. If you like romance with other world gods, evil sorcerers interfering and trying to stop the main characters from succeeding in there quest, you will find this entertaining.
Great Trilogy and message in all 3 books. You can see yourself in each woman but one will really pair with you. This was a surprising and wonderful read.
I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.
I had a hard time when I started the first book. I didn't think I could go on. I pushed myself through the first few chapters and then I really got into it. This is one of those series where you become close to the characters and by the time the series is over you feel like you are letting go of your best friends. I enjoyed it and I recommend these books - once you get through the first few chapters of the first book, you will like it.
I love her books because you get to see so many sides and it is a great way to relax and listen to a great story. I dont care who reads, I just like to sit back and relax and listen!
This series is one of my favorites. I have recommend this series to all my reader friends.
The whole book. It makes the whole series come together perfectly. But the series has to be read in order. You can't start with the 2nd or 3rd book.
Zoe, Susan Ericksen is so talented, she has the greatest range, and she makes it all come alive.
This series is a MUST READ!
Love Nora's series books. The Key Series involves, three women discovering the key to self fulfillment, discovery and true love. It is amazing how Nora Roberts can find or create a myth or legend that can be so believable. She creates an earthly situation we fall into and an other worldly situation that becomes real.
Susan Ericksen is one of my favorite narrators, I especially love her with the J.D. Robb 'In Death' series. She creates subtle vocal differences in each character, her accents are consistent and true. Most times her character interp is exactly what I imagined and what I hope Nora intended.
The Key series is definitely worth a listen and a re-listen.
Camden Smith owns DREAMFly Marketing, a full service marketing firm located in Southwest Florida. She regularly reviews books and is an avid reader as well as audible client. Favorite books are mysterious romances or those stories about personal growth.
So if you've listened to #1 and #2 it has become obvious even to the characters who state that the keys can be found through "self discovery" for the fact that the first I don't know hour of the book the character doesn't understand her clue when it is clearly obvious I think was done just to fill pages not sure.
I usually love Nora Roberts but it's almost like this one was written to just say - ok there it is - it's done.
What she DID BETTER in this one than the others is she dragged out the ending so you really got to experience more of the ending with the character and it was more believable.
Overall I love the series and I would listen again but there is a lot of redundancy that those of you who have listened to the Inn Boonsboro series would not be used to. Her writing has improved.
Great though you won't be sorry it has all kinds of twists - you'll love it.
Absolutely! The story reminds us all that sometimes we paint someone in the present with the experiences of someone from our past without giving them a chance. It has a strong plot with characters that have love, strength and commitment to each other and their cause.
Unsure if I can really compare to anything else I've read where I felt so involved.
The scene where Zoe gets the empowered sword from the King of the Gods, charges and slays the evil god.
It made me proud to have been part (that's how it feels) of a quests with gods where the humans tip the scales to win.
Intriguing, exciting and puzzling
The finding of the key...
the entire book brings the best on me
Susan Ericksen is THE best narrator I've ever heard. She is extremely good at reading different characters and creating a different personality for each character. I love her!
The narrator is fantastic!!!!
