What an interesting storyline. The basic plot takes place in Pleasant Valley, PA and focuses on three women brought together presumably for a party/reception at an old mansion-Warrior's Peak. Malory Price, Dana Steele, and Zoe McCourt, strangers prior to this meeting, have no clue as to what they are about to embark upon. Their hosts - Rowena and Pitte welcome them to the "party of three" and that is when they are presented with the challenge of the three keys, the purpose of which is to find them and unlock the souls of the three demi-mortal-goddesses, put into a "Sleeping Beauty-type" slumber by the evil Kane centuries ago. While discussing the task at hand, all three women are faced with a beautiful and very old portrait of the demi-mortal goddesses and coincidentally the goddesses resemble Malory, Dana and Zoe. Each girl will receive $25,000 up front to take on the challenge and, if all three keys are found, they will then each receive $1,000,000. If the first one fails, the entire task is over and they lose a year of their lives. If the first key is found, then they move onto the next, each having one full month to achieve their goal. Again, even if they are successful with finding the first key, and they do not find the second or then the third, each subsequent failure results in the end of the search with the resulting loss of time in their lives. "Key of Light" is Malory's and Flynn's story and the search for the first key. To summarize the romance point, suffice it to say that there are three very handsome men connected to the story, each getting drawn into the quest for uncovering the whereabouts of the keys through their involvement with the three "chosen" women. It was really nice knowing the story wasn't over at the end of the book. "Key of Knowledge" picks up right where this story leaves off and the reader is treated to the continuing saga of the mystery. This trilogy is Nora at her best. If you enjoy her writing technique, you will definitely become immersed in the "key trilogy" to distinguish what is real, what appears to be real and what is fantasy.

My first Nora Roberts. I have to say that I was a bit skeptical at first, but boy was I off! To my surprise, I REALLY enjoyed this book. The adventure was magical, and I had to know what was going to happen next. And I loved the witty banter between the characters! I can't wait to read Key of Knowledge.

What can I say about the Key trilogy? I loved it, so much so I bought the hard cover. If you love fantasy, gods and wizards you will love this series too.

Very good start to an interesting trilogy...good character interaction and multi-faceted heroines/heroes...first book not only pulls you into the relationship of the main couple but sets up your desire to know more about the other 4 characters and the obvious relationships that will follow. Audio book a joy to listen to...can't change discs fast enough!!!

Three women are summoned by Gods to find three keys that together will break an evil spell. If they succeed, Malory, Dana and Zoe will receive handsome rewards for their services. Malory, with her exceptional knowledge of art, is chosen to go first. She begins her quest with the help of her new friends, and Dana's handsome brother, Flynn. Malory is immediately attracted to Flynn, but doesn't have time for romance when she has only 28 days to find her key.

I found this story slow in places, but it was an interesting beginning to the trilogy. I will definitely be reading the others in the series. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

First trilogy of Nora Roberts that I read. Like the magical aspect of it and it kept me entertained and eager to read the next one. Not a big romance fan but it was tolerable.
