The Malory Price Life Plan does not include a quixotic quest - but the strangers on Warrior's Peak claim that she must find a key that will release three souls held captive by an evil god.
Little does she know that the quest will bring her two new friends: the love of her life - and danger beyond anyone's imagination.

I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
STORY - (romance/fantasy/mystery) I enjoyed Key of Light. It's not just a sweet contemporary romance. There is also an interesting Celtic mystery, magic, Gods and a big silly dog. The lead characters are smart, likeable, and their clever banter will make you chuckle.
This is Book #1 of a trilogy, and in each book the characters will be searching for one of three keys which will unlock a magic box and release a soul which has been imprisoned inside for centuries. This is the story of Mallory's search. It comes to a nice conclusion, so the book can stand alone, but you will probably want to continue the trilogy and learn what happens when the other two keys are found.
PERFORMANCE - Susan Ericksen does a great job. She is the same narrator who reads the In Death series, so you will recognize Roarke's voice/accent in one of the characters.
OVERALL - Recommended for romance readers, especially if they might like an ancient mystery mixed in.
The best trilogy that she has written and absolutely without a doubt, the best narrator. I listened to this book about 5 years ago and now I'm listening again. I love it!
This is exactly what I expected from Nora's books.
The writing at it's best - the narration fantastic.
I thouroughly enjoyed the book = even though you know how it should end, the way it gets there keeps you going.
Thank you - I have already downloaded book 2
This is a fun story, if not predictable at times. I enjoyed it with its twists and turns at the dark side. Light, fun reading.
Sorry, but I really did not find this book appealing and did not continue to the others in the series. While many of Nora's books are very engaging, this felt contrived and foolishly put up, with a sort of half-baked belief system in magic spells to drive real people to coordinate to find supposedly real keys to unlock their powers from past lives as well as finding their true loves through the finding the keys project. Some nice character touches while others were drawn too strongly - and so it seemed foolishly yet strategically laid out - which left it without much magic.
The whole story really gets you into this book! I didn't want to stop listening! I listened to this on a five and a half hour drive and I've never been so awake and intune while driving for so long!
You feel the compassion of these characters, feel their emotions and best of all there's that hint of sarcasm and humor that really keeps this book going!
This was my first listen from the narrator Susan Ericksen, I really enjoyed her though I love her Welsh voice!
I've been addicted to this trilogy! I'm a poor college student but I was willing to search under the couch for spare change just so I could see what happened next! This is a book series you never want to end!
Very good listen. Could not put it down. On to the Key of Knowledge. Get all three you will enjoy.
The story is about three women that come together and each is chosen to find a key which when all found, will relase the soals of three daughters of a God and human. The first book is all about the first key. Certainly not the most imaginative or complicated path to discovery of the key is discussed in this book!!!!The story is ok and that's all.
Say something about yourself!
This trilogy is awesome. I am not a romancy girl but these stories had mystery excitement and a perfect touch of magic and fantasy. Yea yea the romance was ok too. I got sucked into the characters quite quickly and pretty much listened back to back. Really couldn't put them down, in the car, in the kitchen, getting ready for bed, nonstop. Good stuff.
Brilliant story with the best narrator. She made the entire story come alive. I can't wait to listen to her again. Highly enjoyable!
Nora Roberts knows how to weave a good yarn. Her character are real. Almost makes one believe in magick ..... Almost.
"good start of another trilogy by nora roberts."
at the moment it is on par with her other romantic trilogies.
one of her other trilogies dealing with celtic myths. so far this one is good but it really depends on the third book. I have found the first two books are really good but the third part can be a bit of a let down.
I think she narrates all of nora Roberts books and does a good job of performing it.
it held my attention all the way through but you can't listen to a 10 hours book in one sitting.
nora Roberts is a very good writer with good characterisation and plot which holds your attention and keeps it there. the only reason I have given it a four star rating is that personally I don't like explicit descriptions of intercourse. in some cases you can't fast play through these scenarios as you could miss something important to the story. also in these scenarios the sex is always fantastic..
