"Great work from the mistress of fiction"
In Pleasant Valley Malory Price is upset as her orderly
professional life looks over. Seven years at the Gallery
with the last three as the manager means little when the
owner marries a young woman who decides to make the place
her pet rock. Malory knows she must leave, but her
choices are limited to either leaving western Pennsylvania
or changing professions.
Needing to escape, Malory changes her mind and decides to
attend a reception at Warrior's Peak. Hosting the event
is two odd individuals Rowena and Pitte. Also there are
two other guests Dana Steele and Zoe McCourt. Rowena and
Pitte offer the mortals one million dollars each to find
three missing mystical keys that together will free these
Daughters of Glass. Though skeptical, the human trio
begins the quest, not yet understanding the danger they
face. They are joined by Dana's brother Flynn. As they
search for the first key with a Celtic God trying to stop
them, Mal and Flynn fall in love, but is it real or is it
an outsider's spell?
The biggest problem with THE KEY OF LIGHT is that it is so
good that fans will be angry by Jove with Nora Roberts
because they will have to wait a month each for the of
books as the audience wants to believe that Celtic gods and
the supernatural and paranormal are everyday reality. The
key to Ms. Roberts is her talent to continually write
powerfully entertaining tales that raise the quality bars
of multiple genres.
