"A wonderful tale"
In Pleasant valley, Pennsylvania, three women were invited
to attend a cocktail party hosted at a castle by people
they never met before. Intrigued each one shows up as
well as three men. The women learn they are the chosen to
rescue the stolen souls of the three "daughters of
glass". Each one will seek a special key that will open
the locks that imprison Ninkane, Venora, and Kyna. Others
have tried and failed as the God Kane is powerful, tricky,
and willing to kill his antagonists.
Last month Malory Price was first up and successfully
found the KEY OF LIGHT. She also fell in love with one of
the trio of men accompanying the hunt. Now librarian Dana
Steele draws the short straw and begins her quest for the
KEY OF KNOWLEDGE. She has one month to succeed or the
entire mission fails. Though she knows that at some point
she will go it alone, her allies help her, but especially
Jordan Hawke. She loved him once, but he left her without
a look back. Jordan is willing die to keep his beloved
safe. Kane is willing to accommodate Jordan, but killing
Dana is an option.
The key to a Nora Roberts novel is the believability of
the characters who, regardless of the situation (even a
fantasy setting), seem genuine. That is the case in KEY
OF KNOWLEDGE as it was with its predecessor and guaranteed
to occur with the conclusion (see KEY OF VALOR). The
story line is exciting, but it is the prime players
regardless of "species" that make this tale and the series
a must delight for fans of romantic fantasy.
