New friends and valiant champions Zoe McCourt, Mallory Price and Dana Steele have accomplished two thirds of their magical quest. To free the souls of the imprisoned daughters of glass, they were assigned the task of finding three mystical keys that have been hidden for a millennium.

Mal and Dana have successfully found two of the three keys, and now it's Zoe's job to find the remaining one. But the evil sorcerer Kane is determined to stop the release of the daughters, and his methods are growing more dangerous and deadly at every turn.

Zoe's biggest fear is that her young son, Simon, will be targeted by Kane, although magical beings Rowena and Pitt swear to protect Simon. Wealthy businessman Brad Vane also swears to look after Simon and Zoe. Brad has been smitten with Zoe from the first but is having a very difficult time convincing her of his affections.

Using her patented flair, Nora Roberts wraps up her outstanding, magical Key trilogy in dazzling fashion. For consistent quality and emotional punch, no one beats her. (Jan., 352 pp., $7.99)
