    "Great Book.. Terrible Audiobook Editting?"
    Where does Key of Valor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The novel and trilogy was wonderful. I couldn't wait to finish it, but at the same time, didn't want it to end.

    However, the audiobook itself frustrated me. I re-downloaded, listened on different devices, tried different headphones, and all the same. You can hear where they edited different takes together. I felt like they were rushing to get it out on time, because as the book progressed, the worse and more frequent it got.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Zoe was a complex character that I loved getting to know. Overall, we got to know her best after the three books, and her quest was the hardest. I can't say I wasn't frustrated with her at points, but I couldn't blame her for her choices either. Brad was such a sweet and sexy guy, and I was so happy that after three books, he finally got the girl!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Ericksen?

    I liked her a lot, and she did justice to the characters and the story, bringing it to life. I just wish the editing of the audiobook was better.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the trilogy, and this was a great and suspenseful end to a great trilogy. Not the best in the series, but not the worst. I would suggest this trilogy to any fans of Nora Roberts, and any fans of paranormal romance. Also, any fans of single-parents-finding-love romances.

    "Not the best book in the series, but still great!"

    The Keys trilogy was my third to sixth Nora Roberts books. Previously I have read Carnal Innocense, The Collector and The Witness.

    I really enjoyed these books. I connected the least with Zoe so I think it is natural that I prefered the first Two. As always there's romance, suspense and a dog or two!

    Story
    "Loved the trilogy books by Nora Roberts!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Key of Valor to be better than the print version?

    I feel the audio version of this book is much better because of the narrator (Susan Erikson's) superb performance.


    What other book might you compare Key of Valor to and why?

    I'm not sure as this has been my first 3 books that involve fantasy fiction.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Susan Ericksen brings such depth and passion to each character in the story making each one so unique. Her voice's of the men including the young boy Simon are so wonderful that I became totally absorbed with each of them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found this book made me laugh, smile and bring me to tears which is quite difficult to do.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved all the trilogy books by Nora Roberts and narrator Susan Erickson. As another person mentioned in a review that she was sad to have them end, I must agree so am I. I loved each story and it's too bad there won't be anymore of them. After listening to the first book I had a couple of credits left and purchased the 2nd & 3rd book right away. I had an enjoyable marathon of these 3 audio books that took me away and I enjoyed each and every minute!

    "Very nice ending,"

    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.
