Publisher's Summary

History isn't always what it seems....

With the battle of Egypt behind them, Alec and Cronin are enjoying the thrill of new love. Though fate doesn't wait long before throwing them back into the world of weird.

They know Alec's blood is special, though its true purpose still eludes them. And given Alec's inability to be changed into a vampire, Cronin is free to drink from him at will. But the ramifications of drinking such powerful blood starts a ripple effect.

With the help of Jorge, a disturbing vampire-child with the gift of foresight, Alec and Cronin face a new kind of war. This time their investigations lead them to the borders of China and Mongolia - but it's not what lies in the pits beneath that worries Alec.

It's the creator behind it all.

In the underground depths of China, amid a war with the Terracotta Army, they will find out just what the Key is - and what Alec means to the vampire world.

    "The brilliance continues!"
    Would you listen to Cronin's Key II again? Why?

    Yes. This is one of my favorite series. I love the author and the narrator, and I always re-listen to my favorites.


    What other book might you compare Cronin's Key II to and why?

    This series reminds me of the Indiana Jones franchise, but with vampires and gay romance! I love how actual history is incorporated into the story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    While I love the entire book, I felt emotional when the cause of Jorge's "personalities" was revealed. He finally felt understood, and it was lovely.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is wonderful, and I look forward to listening to the next book, which I've pre-ordered.

    "Happy ever after and god like powers"

    Great ending to a wonderful story. I only have one complaint. (Spoiler). In my opinion giving Alec Every power known to all is kind of a stretch. It was good for a build up. But the conclusion was a bit craze. Would have been better with one power like all vampires. Like his photographic memory. Was going to give it a 5 except the last 30 min. Lost 2 stars. It did have a happy ending. I just think it could have been a little more happy with out all the God like powers.

    "Joel Leslie does it again!"
    Any additional comments?

    Cronin's Key II picks up right where book 1 left off and is just as exciting and engaging as before. Alec and Cronin continue to grow closer and they make such a great couple! Their scenes together are cute and tender, and their banter (especially Alec's) made me laugh!

    Leslie continues to impress me with his ability to use different accents and tones of voice. He is a truly talented actor and I can't praise him enough!! The emotions that he portrays in these characters is just wonderful and really add to the overall experience of listening to this story.

    There is a particular part at the end where Cronin growls/yells, "The life of my Ailig is not a game!", and let me tell you...I got chills...well done Leslie! Perfection!

    4.5 Stars

    "More, please."

    The combination of N.R. Walker and Joel Leslie is truly magical. Cronin and Alex draw you in and you never want to leave their world. Add to that the great supporting characters and you get a story to be listened to over and over.

    "A vampire series like no other"

    I love this series. Have read several times and buy up the audiobooks as soon as they are available for preorder. Joel Leslie is wonderful and I am so thankful he is doing this series. He makes me cry, smile, and most keeps me on the edge of my seat. He does a perfect job bringing these characters to life thru his voice. And as always I am grateful to N.R. Walker for this series. I wish the series would continue on because I can see so many paths these characters could take. Please take the time to listen to these books and enjoy the ride.

    "Sexy, Clever, and Engaging"

    This was a fun read / listen. The Cronin's world is fantastic and interesting to follow. It's certainly sexy.
    Joel Leslie nailed it with this series.

    "Great Series!!!"

    In my excitement to write my reviews, I put my review for book 2 under book 3... so this will be a review of the entire series...

    It is great... Fantastic series of m/m vampire romance. The fact that Alex is the Key to save mankind was a nice little spin on vampire's fated mates... Book one, Alex learns he cannot be turned into a vampire because he already has vampire blood in him... book 2 Alex learns what it really means to be the Key, and book 3, let's just say, some pretty nasty beasts come from another realm to lay a hurting on Alex and Cronin... but it all works out in the end...

    Excellent storyline, action, adventure... and history!! This series was great in how it mixed history into the storyline, but made it believable as to why this or that happen and how vampires where behind it all... Like how the ancient Egyptian pharaohs were actually vampires!! So good..

    Narration was excellent throughout the entire series!!

    Great buy, credit or sale book!! Just get it!!

    "Another excellent read"

    N. R. Walker and Joel Leslie conjure up another masterful tale of vampires, ancient wonders and impossible situations. Addictive and funny the first book was the first ever audible adaption to make me laugh out loud on my bus commute to work. Earning me several surprised looks. I proceeded to snicker and snort until my stop, unable to help myself as the books well written and perfectly delivered lines tickled my funny bone. My only nitpick is how Joel says Gengis Khan's name, calling him Jengis, like the game Jenga. But if that is my only complaint over two books and 20+ hours of audio, I think that's a pretty fine record.

    "Sublime"

    These are fantastic books. Full of action, vampire magic, humour and love. Great for a romance LOL.
    Add in the amazing voice characterisation of Joel Leslie and it's raised to a whole other level of awesome.
    I can't recommend these books and audios highly enough. Can't wait for book three.
