On the verge of getting fired from her job, Malory Price is just off-balance enough to accept a bizarre invitation to a reception at the remote mansion at Warrior's Peak. When Mal arrives she is met by two handsome individuals, Rowena and Pitte. Mal is also introduced to fellow guests Dana Steele and Zoe McCourt.

Once the group is gathered, Rowena and Pitte tell them a fantastical tale of gods, goddesses, magic and three imprisoned young women. The Daughters of Glass have waited an eternity for the three mortal women who can release them from their prison. Mal, Dana and Zoe are offered a proposition: locate the
three missing mystical keys and they will each receive a million dollars.

After accepting the challenge, the trio begins gathering information. Dana calls on her brother Flynn Hennessy for some help. To Flynn this is just a great way to get close to the highly attractive Mal. However, everyone undergoes an attitude change once they realize that Rowena and Pitte's tale is true and that lives hang in the balance. There is also the small matter of the evil Kane, who will stop at nothing to prevent Mal, Dana and Zoe from succeeding.

The incomparable Roberts presents the Key series, an exciting supernatural trilogy that will chronicle the quest to recover the long-missing mystical keys. First up is the story of Mal, who must utilize her knowledge of art and beauty to uncover her key. (Nov., 352 pp., $7.99)

Key of Light

Submitted by Robin in PA on May 9, 2011 - 1:38pm.

Three women are summoned by Gods to find three keys that together will break an evil spell.  If they succeed, Malory, Dana and Zoe will receive handsome rewards for their services.  Malory, with her exceptional knowledge of art, is chosen to go first.  She begins her quest with the help of her new friends, and Dana's handsome brother, Flynn. Malory is immediately attracted to Flynn, but doesn't have time for romance when she has only 28 days to find her key.

I found this story slow in places, but it was an interesting beginning to the trilogy.  I will definitely be reading the others in the series.  My rating: 4 Stars.
