Key of Light Reviews

    As the first book in the series, Key of Light did the job: it set the story arc up, introduced all the main characters and, in the end, wrapped up the first couple's love story in a nice HEA.The PNR aspect of the story was interesting, with a gothic vibe that was eerie and unexpected. An old mansion named Warrior's Peak, guarded by gargoyles, sitting at the top of a hill surrounded by mist... A dark and stormy night... A woman driving alone, wondering what she was going to find at the mansion... That was on the first pages of the book and, no matter how cliché that was, I was chilled to the bone and wondering if Malory, the heroine, would turn out to be one of those TSTL blondes whose aim in life is to step willingly into the arms of death just to keep the story going. Thankfully, it wasn't like that and the story moved along quite nicely, once Malory and her newfound friends/partners Dana and Zoe, the heroines in the following books in the series, were presented with the task they were supposed to do: find the keys that would release the souls of three demigoddesses who had been imprisoned hundreds of years ago. I'm not going into details here, but the tale about their lives was very charming and romantic - regardless of the sad ending, that is.Flynn, Dana's brother, joined the quest for the keys in no time, even though he was skeptical about the whole thing... Well, all of them were skeptical at first, but they changed their minds when strange things started to happen. Back to Flynn... He was the all-around good guy, charming, seductive and, of course, commitment-shy. Malory was soon in love with him - who could blame her? :) - and he was in too, even though it took him longer to see it that way. There was really no conflict in their relationship, and that was a problem for me. Not that I wanted them to go all angsty or start a fight just for the sake of it, but there wasn't anything that prevented them from being together and their relationship felt kind of boring to me.On the other hand, I think NR did a much better job when it came to showing Flynn's friendship with Jordan and Brad - not coincidentally, the heroes in the next books in the series. I actually thought that Flynn's scenes with his friends were more interesting than his scenes with Malory, and that's not a good thing in Romancelandia. Malory's scenes with Dana and Zoe were less entertaining and felt a little too juvenile to me. They would have been more fitting if they had been in their early twenties, IMHO.There's a lot of talk about symbolism and coincidences in this book: some interesting, some confusing. I thought the "key" Malory was supposed to find was only a metaphor but it turned out to be "real" - or the next best thing, since this is a PNR story. As for the ending, I was as fooled by Malory's trick as the villain: I thought Flynn would have to rescue her with a bang, but I should have known that she was smart enough to do it by herself. Girl Power, yay! ;)All things considered, this was an overall good, although not stellar, read for a nice and lazy afternoon/evening. And, referring to the first paragraph above, it did the job: I'm interested enough in keep reading the series.

    I'd like to start by thanking my lovely friend Celeste for making me discover one of her favorite authors and feel-good series! <3 And Key of Light totally made me feel insanely good! I enjoyed it, a lot, and if I've had more free time, I'd have read it in one sitting. The writing flowed easily and told the story of Malory, Dana and Zoe, 3 passionate women, thrown into a strange and almost impossible quest.My favorite aspect of the book was the dynamics between the female characters! We absolutely need more of that positivity, benevolence and unconditional support, in fiction but most importantly in real life relationships! It was everything I'd love to have and see in a friendship: no wanton judgement or pettiness or envy or unnecessary drama! #Friendshipgoals I know that must sound like a Utopian and naive fantasy on my part, but this comfort was exactly what I have been looking for and expecting from this series: an uncomplicated, a tad predictable and rather cute read. As my friend Celeste says about Nora's books, in her Come Sundown review:"Yes, her work is formulaic, but it’s supposed to be!! I don’t pick up her books to be surprised; I pick them up for their familiarity and the comfort that brings."Besides the touching relationships, art was a central and most beautifully described theme in this book. Nora Roberts made an excellent job at defining it and conveying the emotions it induces in both the artist and the audience! I felt a huge kinship for Malory because of her inability to create art, despite her knowledge and boundless love of it. Man! That struck a chord!Anything worth anything can be found in books.Overall, Key of Light was a very easy and enjoyable read! Despite the romantic aspect being too abrupt and some parts of the quest being predictable and convenient, My interest and excitement never faltered! The chemistry between the three women made me root for them and the crises they've been facing in their personal lives made them more real and extremely relatable. I can't wait to dive into the sequel and having more of sarcastic Dana' story.

    DEAR Ms. Roberts,I totally believe that two people who have spent a whole summer jumping out of planes and escaping DEATH BY FIRE together on a daily basis might fall in love and get married after knowing each other for only a few months.It also seems plausible that you might fall in love with a guy who had a crush on you in high school, or even possibly your car mechanic, but deciding to marry this random dude with an annoying dog three weeks after you met him, just because you went on some wackadoo fairy quest with him and had sex on an ugly couch?Unplausible.Also, stuff like, "I can walk three miles in these heels. I'm a professional female"? VOM. No love, Jenne

    Even though I know what's going to happen in every story written by Nora Roberts, I love reading her. Her down-to-earth writing style and humorous dialogues between characters are refreshing and very entertaining. I love a good story with a happy ending, and this one gives you all that, plus I found myself chuckling out loud. I love it when a author engages my emotions enough to make me scared, laugh, cry, get angry, etc. Nora Roberts is an excellent writer, and she can do all that. Thankfully, she doesn't fall into the category below. I'm going to step up on my soap box for a moment. I find it annoying, sometimes extremely annoying, when while reading a book, because of misspellings, missing words, skipped sentences, and out-of-order words and/or sentences, I have to reread a sentence or a paragraph to get the meaning of the idea intended. There are too many writer's and/or publishers out there, who are lazy or just don't care enough about the reader to do a good job of proof reading and editing. It may be just me, but I don't think so.

    Esta série já me tinha sido recomendada pelo bibliotecário por diversas vezes, mas nunca me tinha decidido a pegar nos livros para começar a ler.Nora Roberts é uma autora de quem gosto particularmente. Oferece-nos histórias que facilmente cativam a nossa atenção com personagem por quem é fácil desenvolver um enorme espectro de sentimentos.O livro A chave da luz mistura romance, mistério, lendas e fantasia. São bons ingredientes para um livro, porém a forma como a autora os operacionalizou é que foi um pouco superficial. Faltaram mais aspetos e pormenores acerca do mistério e da lenda que envolve as três chaves, faltaram mais momentos que aprofundassem as relações entre as personagens e a forma como o mistério foi resolvido por Malory foi apressado e com um conteúdo pouco esmiuçado. Penso que o Flynn merecia um pouco mais de destaque para conseguirmos compreender de um forma mais profunda a sua personalidade e a sua forma de agir perante os outros.Eu sei que este é o primeiro livro de uma trilogia e que, por isso, é importante deixar algumas pontas soltas do mistério para que sejam desenvolvidas nos livros seguintes. Contudo, penso que neste livro poderia haver mais misticismo. Aguardo com alguma espetativa os volumes seguintes. Tenho muita curiosidade para saber mais sobre as duas próximas personagens femininas.

    When perfect strangers Malory, Zoe, and Dana all receive a mysterious summons to the local historical mansion Warrior's Peak, none of them quite know what to expect. But once they get talking they discover they are more alike than they realized. They are all down on their luck in terms of employment, they live nearby, and are all single. But there is something more mysterious that links them together as well. Age old secrets, legends, and destinies bind them together on a quest to rid the world of an ancient evil and set right a wrong that began long long ago. As long as the women are up to the task.I think this is absolutely my FAVORITE Nora Roberts book I have read so far! It was fantastic! It had so many wonderful elements incorporated into it! Magic, romance, fate, suspense, mythology, quests...what more could a girl ask for? And as much as I loved the story, I really was head over heels for the characters, especially Dana. They all seemed so real and so easy to identify with, I felt myself so caught up in the story I never wanted it to end! I am really excited about the next book in the trilogy!

    I read this book and the two others in the series over the course of a very long weekend when I hosted a garage sale, and I mostly enjoyed it because the women were sassy, the story was fun, and it didn't make me think too hard.I don't like it when people say that they're above certain types of writing. It's fine if you prefer certain genres, but I don't think any genre should be dismissed out of hand. Admittedly, there are a lot of romance novels that are just over-the-top, plotless, and poorly written. But I think Nora Roberts manages to give her characters enough...you know, character. You have feelings about the characters and I think that's the sign of any good writer - if they can make you give a damn.So I liked these books, and I continue to read Nora Roberts novels (of which there are many) when they come across my path.

    I know Nora Roberts pretty much has a formula and I know that some of this book followed the formula but there was something about this one that I really, really loved. I love the 3 main characters and how they have formed an instant friendship, I love the 3 love interests (all have been introduced in this book), love the story, the myth behind the keys, the atmosphere, the writing. I enjoyed the romance and how it played out, too. Oh, and I can't forget Moe, the dog! He cracked me up a few times.I can't wait to continue this trilogy.

    The first of the Key trilogy. Set in a fictitious Pennsylvania town, three women search to free the imprisoned souls of three demi-goddesses while trying to avoid malicious vengeful Celtic gods.Perhaps this should really get a fourth star. I loved the characters. If you disregard the gods run amok aspect, this is a great romance. The dialog had me smiling through most of the book. Fun.

    Was a bit disappointed by this one. The theme of the story is one that usually catches me without trouble but this story fell kind of flat. I couldn´t connect to any of the characters and didn´t feel for them in any way - it felt more like a dull enragement of things happening without emotions. I will probably read the other two books one day but I´m in no hurry.

    Malory Price wasn't the smartest cookie in a bag of treats. Though she had a college degree and had made her mark at a prestigious art gallery, she spilled coffee on her boss's new temperamental wife. It was an accident! Uh. Huh. And she managed to get on the young woman's bad side by disagreeing with her 'improvements' that she had made within the business. To top it off she had issues with spending her paychecks and didn't have a dime to show for it. So it came as very little surprise when she was fired dismissed from her job. But all of this was nothing compared with the very unusual evening she had just spent with Pitte and Rowena, two unusual 'people' whom offered her a hard-to-pass-up deal. And let us not forget that she made some new friendships with Dana and Zoe: her cohorts with this adventure.Lastly, there was Flynn and Moe: an attractive man -Dana's stepbrother- and his mutant-size dog. I enjoyed Moe. He was friendly, goofy and lovable. When the story's pacing felt erratic at times, Moe gave me reason to regroup and continue reading. And yes, there was quite a bit going on: chick-lit, paranormal fiction, fantasy-adventure, contemporary romance, mythology/magic involved and friendship-bonding were just a few of the genres. Of course, Moe gave it some light humorous moments. And for the first two-thirds of the story I was kept interested. At times, Malory came across a little too sharp with Flynn and then she was confused. That, and the same pacing I mentioned earlier caused some bumps and grinds for the last third of the book. IMHO, I thought there was just too much going on.Did I like it? Yes, it had its moments. Could Ms. Roberts have written a smoother storyline? Absolutely. Will I give the next book a try? I am still interested. Just be sure and read this book before starting the other two: it feels like everyone has a connection. *And you may want to put little weight on my review because the majority of 30,000+ people thought this story was wonderful.*Now it is Dana's turn to find a key.

    Generally, I am not really into the stereotypical romance novels: boy meets girl; they have a crush on each other; something gets in the way; they stop being together; they end up together in the end; the end. But this isn't what this book is about. It is much more than that.The novel (the first of three in the Key Trilogy) includes a mythic background with three goddesses who are trapped asleep in a glass box and three women are brought together--whom happen to look exactly like the goddesses--to find the three keys to open the glass box while trying to beat Kane--the evil sorcerer who trapped the daughters in the glass box.The story is has the bond of friendships, relationships which are mended or created, and a realization of what Malory--one of the three woman and who the POV of the book is around--really wants with her life. It is a story that many women can connect to. The women in the story are brave, bold, and although seem a bit vulnerable when they are put in situations out of their comfort zone in regards to their love life and careers, are strong and smart.There are also a bit of a sexual theme in the story--as do most of Nora Roberts' novels--but not too much that the story revolves around it, but just enough to set the tone of sensuality and libito.Over all, it was a really good book and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good quick read.

    Despite the info dump in the early chapters and a bit of a slow section in the first half, I really enjoyed this book. Malory is one of three women who've been brought together for a very special task. They strike a deal to each find three hidden keys. One by one, they'll each take a turn to find their key. Malory is selected first and the journey begins. I really enjoyed the relationship between the women. Their sleepovers and banter about men trouble was entertaining and realistic. I think Malory's relationship with Flynn moved way too fast, certainly too fast for true love, but I just went with it because it was enjoyable. Flynn was also a lot of fun, but Moe - the dog - took the spotlight. Watching Flynn try to keep up with his hyperactive dog added a layer of humor between the tension and drama in the plot. I also enjoyed Flynn's relationship with his step-sister and how honest they are with each other. It was a really fun read with an exciting ending. I'll be moving onto the next book!

    A light and entertaining read, this first book of Nora Roberts' Key trilogy features the usual kind of set-up - three books, three women, three lovestories, one ultimate goal (in this case a magical quest for keys to free the trapped souls of three demigoddesses). I tend to like her paranormal stories a bit more than the "regular" romance since it always adds a more fascinating backstory, and this one was no exception. It never ceases to astonish me that Nora Roberts can take the same ingredients over and over again, mix them up a bit and end up with yet another book that will keep you hooked from start to finish even though you know perfectly well how it's gonna end. Somehow, that always makes these quite relaxing to read. Looking forward to the next!

    https://writingisfunbooks.wordpress.c...I recommend this book to the ones that love some mistery, action and a lot of passion mixed together.I will try to find the books in the book stores, read them and post a review later. The book was amazing and I loved every second of it. To all of the fans of Nora Roberts I want to say that you must read this trilogy, it’s realy breath taking.The book is all about magic in a world that noone believes in that anymore. And in order to find the key the three women must believe in it.

    This was my first Nora Roberts book. It was OK. I like the idea and supernatural aspect to the storyline, but in the end, the book was just OK. I went on to read the rest of the series, 'cos I HAD to know how it all finished, but I won't be bothering with any more Nora Roberts...

    Easy read and nice story. Well built characters and plot. Eager to know more about the two other women. As always, Nora Roberts trilogies revolve around three women each one needs to find her love. Even though we have already met all the partners, I want to see how they play out. Also, interested in the fantasy aspect of the story. I hadn't seen Nora Roberts fantasies and they are as all her books, slowly built to get you into the world.

    *3 - 3.5 beauty stars*I haven't read Nora in a while. My last read of her's was The Guardians, another paranormal romance, a few months ago. Key trilogy follows three women - Malory, Dana, and Zoe - all of them living in the same town, but they haven't met until they were invited to a 'party' in one big, fancy house on the hill. The party turns out to be a small gathering in which Pitte and Rowena tell them a story about three goddesses whose souls were stolen and locked in the box. Malory, Dana, and Zoe are mortal women chosen to find the keys and help release the souls of goddesses. Each will get a month to find her key, but the month is long enough time to find love, although you are probably not searching for it. Three soon become six (and a half if you count Moe), darkness is waiting for them as they look to find beauty, knowledge, and courage.I like the story, especially the legend part. Nora always has great ideas on legends and myths and stories that are hard not to love. What I had the problem with was getting sucked into the story. The beginning was kind of dull and had a lot of description, maybe a bit too much for my taste. Also, the love story, although cute, had this fairytale, painted in pink with glitter, hearts, and flowers feel. Too perfect, too unreal. So yeah... The supporting characters were nice, and I already have a feeling I'll like more other two stories. Characters as such are more complex and have a history together/we'll see more of them together before they get their book, so I'm looking forward to that and seeing how will the legend end. And this two quotes really spoke to me. The first is about friendship and difficulties of maintaining one as we grow older and the second one is about accomplishing your dreams. "I have some friends from college. We were close, and I guess we all thought we'd be close forever. Now we're scattered and hardly see each other. Once or twice a year if we can all manage it. We talk on the phone or through e-mail now and then, but it's not the same. I miss them. I miss who we were when we were friends and the telepathy you develop so that you know what the other's thinking, or what she'd do in some situation.""I guess I had to work out for myself what I was doing and why. Now I know. I0m starting my own business because the longer you put off dreams, the less chance you have of making them real."

    Review for all three books in the trilogy.The thing about these books isn't the vaguely supernatural plot or the romance, it's the found-family.There is a vaguely supernatural plot. Strangers, Malory, Dana, and Zoe, are all invited to a mysterious gathering hosted by the even more mysterious Rowena and Pitte. They're told a story about a god, soon to be king, who traveled into the mortal world, fell in love with a human woman. He brought her back to his world and they had three beautiful daughters. When those daughters were grown an evil sorcerer, rival for the king's power, cast a spell on them, trapping their souls in a glass box, leaving their bodies lifeless. The only way the spell could be broken is if three mortal women found the keys to the glass box. Malory, Dana, and Zoe are those three mortal women.There is romance. The first book centers on Malory, and deals with her romance with Finn. The second on Dana and her romance with Jordan. The third on Zoe and Brad. But the wonderful thing about these books is how little time they spend on romance and how much they spend on the friendship growing between Malory, Dana, and Zoe, the pre-existing friendsihp between Flynn, Jordan, and Brad, and the way these six people become family to each other. Not only do the three women fulfill their quests and find their loves, they also start a business together and spend a great deal of time discussing how wonderful, helpful, and supportive the friendship they're developing is. Sure, there's a great deal of discussion about each other's love lives, but there's also a great deal of discussion about the business, each other's talents, and what each wants from life. To a lesser degree--because this is the women's story, after all--the men have similar discussions.Found-family is my thing. It gets me every time. And these six people, plus Rowena, Pitte, Zoe's son Simon, and Flynn's goofy dog Moe, make a great family.

    This was a fun, though light, read. I happened to be in the exact right mood for this book, so I'm afraid I devoured faster than usual.It doesn't hurt the book that the main character's name is Malory and one of my first crushes was Mallory Keaton (yes, that Mallory Keaton). I know, I'm a dork. Still, Malory Price is an extremely likeable character even if some of her best lines are too stereotypical to take seriously. I particularly like that she is brave enough to confess her feelings before she is sure that they are (or will be) reciprocated. There are enough unique traits to keep her from being just a stereotype of the girly-girl thrust into an action/detective role.Flynn is even more of a stereotype than Malory. He's kind of a self-conscious cross between George Bailey (from It's a Wonderful Life) and Clark Kent in his mild-mannered reporter guise (from... do you really have to be told this one?). It helps that he compares himself to George Bailey, so at least it functions more of an homage than amalgamated rip-off.Even if there's a lot of formula in the characters, the frame story is an interesting one. I don't know if Roberts found and borrowed an actual obscure Welsh myth, but it doesn't really matter if she did or not. The frame story is compelling and the identification between the figures of the myth and the girls of the story is an interesting one. In the end, the combination of frame story and seeing how it relates to the modern setting and characters held my interest and attention to deliver an enjoyable read.A note about Steamy: This book had a standard couple of explicit scenes. Nothing terribly remarkable about the frequency or content of them, though don't take that to mean that there's anything "blah" about it...

    O conceito por detás desta Trilogia sempre me fascinou: Um Deus Rei apaixona-se por uma Mortal e leva-a para o seu Reino semeando assim o caos e a discórdia. Eles têm três filhas com almas semi-mortais que são adoradas por todos... bem, por quase todos! Num momento de distração um feitiço é lançado e as almas das três irmãs são presas numa caixa com três fechaduras. As chaves são escondidas no Plano Mortal e três mulheres- que são fisicamente idênticas às três princesas- são encarregues de encontrar as chaves. Cada mulher tem exactamente 28 dias para o conseguir. Se a primeira falhar, as outras também falham. Se a segunda falhar, a terceira também falha. Se falharem, na geração seguinte nascem outras três mulheres com a mesma missão. As almas têm de ser libertadas num período máximo de três mil anos, caso contrário o feiticeiro que aprisionou as almas dominará o Plano dos Deuses e o Mortal.Lindo não acham? Mágico....Agora é a vez de Malory, Zoe e Dana tentarem a sua sorte. Nenhuma destas mulheres se conhecia, a vida professional de cada estava por um fio, mas após um misterioso convite para irem ao Pico do Guerreiro e a missão de encontrar as chaves lhes ser atribuída, uma forte amizade é forjada. A primeira a procurar a chave é Malory.A Chave da Luz constituí uma leitura agradável e ligeira, com um delicioso toque de humor, magia e romance. Contudo, apesar de me ter proporcionado bons momentos, não foi de todo dos melhores que já li da autora. Gostei de não se focar única e exclusivamente no casal principal, como também nos personagens secundários que terão o seu próprio livro. Após ter lido este, julgo que o meu preferido será o da Zoe, que é o último da Trilogia.

    okay, so! This book was fun, and a nice deviation from both school work and the dark SciFi/fantasy stuff I've been super into lately. Lisa was right; it affords the reader a nice escape into a world that keeps your interest well enough, but still provides a feel good ending. The constantly changing points of view and unclear passages of time were fairly annoying, but easily overlooked by the admittedly interesting plot and romantic love scenes. The characters are somewhat cliche and the themes and messages are beat over the reader's head, but at the end of the day it was a great escape with an empowering message of self love and discovery, and who can knock that? 3/5 for an enjoyable read, but not one I feel I *need* to own a copy of or an instant favorite.

    Let me tell you a story... the story of three demi-goddesses who were born to a god king and his mortal wife. Jealous of his happiness & outraged by his marriage to a mortal, the other gods secretly plotted to destroy the king. One god succeeded in stealing the daughters's souls. The angry god then locked them each in a box that could only be unlocked by mortal 3 women...I am such a fan of Nora Roberts. Her romances always leave me sitting back in my chair wondering why the hell my life isn't one of her stories!Key of Light is the first book of the Key trilogy and a nice start to the series. It's been quite a few years since I've read this book or series but I remember how much I enjoyed it. The storyline is very engaging and you're guaranteed to relate to one of the 3 women (for me it was Zoe & Dana.... Malory is the complete opposite of me) who find themselves on the Key quest. And of course their male counterparts are swoon worthy but I was more interested in the underlying plot then the romance of the book. The fantasy/paranormal element of the book was fun with just a slight hint of darkness.This is such a quick read that the story feels a little rushed but it's still worthy of a read. A decent read & a very good series.

    Nora Roberts definitely follows a formula when writing her trilogies, and it's for that reason alone, that I'm not giving this a higher rating. Until the "formula" changes, I feel like there's not enough effort being put into the story. Don't get me wrong; I enjoyed Key of Light. It's not going on my favorites list, but it was good. And even though Nora Roberts does take a cookie cutter approach in her writing, she also throws enough curves to keep things interesting. I don't know if I'll ever re-read this book, but I will definitely continue the Key Trilogy through to the end. Roberts creates wonderful characters, and I'm anxious to find out how they cope with Nora's formula. I can predict the plot, but not the reactions of the characters to the events, and that is what keeps her books fresh and entertaining to me.
