To become a demon, you must die in complete and utter despair. Three hundred years ago, Max passed that test with flying colors and joined the afterlife resolving never again to have innocent blood on his hands. Now Max has been given the job of breaking a young witch's family curse. But what she doesn't know, what Max can't bring himself to tell her, is that completing his mission almost certainly means her death.
When Felicity Woodsen inherits her mother's coven, she learns each firstborn Woodsen daughter must become the consort of an evil-arch demon. Felicity's only hope is to ally with the mysteriously charming Max. But is saving her body from one demon worth risking her soul with another?
Roxashael became a demon when his Roman captors sent his family, one by one to be devoured by lions. The lesson was clear: power is good; lots of power is better. Two-thousand years later, Rocky has power. He's purchased hundreds of souls, and he's created the Minsk Homunculus, a magic artifact that, by binding a human witch as his consort, turns him into an arch-demon and places him above the goody-two-shoes laws of karma.
Unfortunately, Rocky made a mistake. He fell in love with Felicity's mother and in a moment of weakness promised to give up his demon-consort charm. Now Felicity's mother is dead, the Minsk Homunculus is slated for destruction, and Rocky's power as an arch-demon is about to end.
No demon can break a promise. If Rocky refuses to give up the Minsk Homunculus, he'll become the lowest, most abject slave in Hell. But then, why break promises when they're so easy to corrupt?
**Caution: This book contains violence, strong sexual themes, moderately explicit sex between consenting adults, (unfulfilled) threats against children, and one completely gratuitous reference to unicorns.

It's Got Karma!
Keys to the Coven was quirky, entertaining, and fun to listen too!
Vickey did a great job of developing a different spin on demons, and angels, and how they gain and use "karma." It really was unlike any paranormal/fantasy I've listened to which was refreshing. I loved how each chapter started off by giving tips from the " Girls Guide to Demons."
Kudos to Emily Beresford and Nick Podehl! They did an awesome job narrating the story, and gave each character their own voice and projected the right amount of emotion. They really made this an entertaining story to listen to.

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
I was hooked in the first hour and did not want to put this down! I like a good witch book, and this had witches and demons...so plus plus!! Felicity goes to settle her mothers estate after her passing, not knowing there was more then meets the eye going on there. Turns out her mother had deep dealings with the underworld and Felicity's soul has been sold to a demon names Max...now Max is not a bad guy, and as she gets to know his, a romance blooms, and a bunch of things unfold..Felicity has been in the dark about her family for a long time, but evil always shows itself!
REALLY GREAT STORY, AND FUNNY BOOK! I RECOMMEND!

Have you ever read a book and wished it were true? Well, parts of it anyways lol. The life of a demon doesn't sound too bad in this book! Lots of sex and sex gets you karma. Wow! Excellent erotic love story with witches and demons. Both narrators did an excellent job. I love how it switches perspective from Max to Felicity. Definitely looking forward to book 2!

A love story mixed with a tale of good and evil
What did you like most about Keys to the Coven?
There was a lot to like in this novel. The characters of Max and Felicity were likable and their love story was interesting. I liked the "Holy Bowlers" and that the witch's coven of the novel was based in a bowling alley. I liked Felicity's battle with the powers of darkness, to save her potential heirs from being molested as she was.
What other book might you compare Keys to the Coven to, and why?
The dark humor of Keys to the Coven reminds me of Steven Brust's Vlad Taltos books. The family of witches battling supernatural forces reminds me of Anne Rice's Mayfair Witches series, but Loebel's book is definitely more light-hearted and breezy romance.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
My favorite scene was when Max and Felicity visit the bar at the bowling alley coven in Falstaff, Arizona. The scene reminded me of Tim Burton movies like Beetlejuice and Corpse Bride.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The book did make me laugh, but I was surprised at how much it kept me on the edge of my seat, waiting to see how Max or Felicity would get out of a bad spot.
Any additional comments?
Although the book had numerous spots of humor, I was surprised how violent and tense it was at parts. Overall it worked, and I enjoyed the book. However, I would have liked to have seen a little more of the humor.
