STORY (fantasy/romance) - You can't go wrong with this series. There are great characters sweet romances, clever banter, all tied together with a mysterious quest. Dana, Mallory and Zoe must, in turn, find three keys to release three souls held captive by an evil god. This is Book 2, Dana's quest, and it's a wild one. She tangles with Cain, the evil god, and with sexy Jordan Hawke as well. Not just a sweet romance, lots more going on.
PERFORMANCE - I love Susan Ericksen. She always delivers a great performance. In this book I especially love her performances of Pitt and Rowena, two of the gods.
OVERALL - The books in this series should be listened to in order so you follow the story of the quest for the keys and the character development. That said, each book does a good job of bringing you up to speed and each story stands alone. There's a tiny bit of cursing, but it's pretty mild. There are also Nora's typical romantic, "classy" sex scenes, the kind that aren't explicit but you still can feel the passion and heat. Recommended for all romance readers.

This review addresses a series, The Key Trilogy, by Nora Roberts. Book 1 Key of Life, Book 2 Key of Valor, Book 3 Key of Knowledge.
A Nora Roberts novel is usually a simple boy-meets-girl-romance with a story sprinkled throughout. Out of the box a tiny bit, The Key Trilogy is fantasy, i.e., witches and Celtic gods type Sci-Fi. A character even walks through a mirror as in Alice In Wonderland. But, Roberts does stick to her formula of chic-lit with the typical mawkish romance scenes *roll-eyes-hit-fast-forward* and an intriguing mystery.
All the characters are drop-dead-gorgeous, and much of the story is will-he-won’t-she romance. Two of the Celtic gods are personified by a handsome couple that own a mansion in a pretty town. They invite three women, complete strangers to each other, to complete a mysterious task (hint: involves keys, duh), ergo three books, one for each.
Anyway, if you like Nora Roberts, saccharine love scenes that do not fade-to-black, a bit of mystery, paranormal/SciFi, these will do.
Brilliance Audio, 2008, narration by Susan Ericksen (same reader as the In Death series) is great as usual. Each book is about 10 hours of listening.
Chic-lit fans enjoy!
