Book Description

18 Dec 2003 Key Trilogy (Book 1)
The pleasure of your company is desired for cocktails and conversation. 8pm, 4th September. Warrior's Peak. You are the Key. The lock awaits. When Malory Price is issued with the above invitation she is naturally suspicious, especially as Warrior's Peak is a local mansion house straight out of a Hollywood horror movie. But with her overdraft at crisis limit and on the verge of losing her job at a local art gallery, she has little to lose by attending the event. But Malory is about to get more than she bargained for. At Warrior's Peak she finds that she and two other women are the only guests of their mysterious hosts. They are told an amazing story of magic, gods and goddesses; and of three demi-goddesses who have been cast into an eternal sleep, their mortal souls placed under lock and key. And in every generation, three women are born who alone have the power to free them - if they are prepared to accept the challenge. Three women. Three keys to find. If one fails, they all lose. If they all succeed - money, power and a new destiny awaits. It will take more than intellect, more than determination. They will have to open their hearts, their minds, and believe that everything and anything is possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Key of Light 15 Dec 2003
A truely amazing story. This is the first book in the Key trilogy. Its a great introduction into the lifes of the 8 main characters.
This book concentrates on Malory Price and her quest to find the Key of Light.
If your a Nora Roberts fan this is a must read, also if you have an interest in mystery and the world of gods and goddesses.
The story itself is one of the best i've read in a while, i couldn't put it down.
I'm looking forward to the next in the series "Key of Valour".

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Gold 26 Mar 2004
By Twigs
Like strawberry cheesecake, this book is scrumptious. One taste and you wont want to put it down until u've finished the whole thing.Myths, magic, gods and godesses it's the first in a trilogy that tells of three women coming together to break an ancient spell. The charectors are vibrant, dialogue excellent, With a plot that will keep you hooked until the last page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another great book from Nora 3 Dec 2003
I bought this a few weeks ago in the US.
Another brilliant book from Nora Roberts, mystery, myth and magic is a winning combination.
She returns to the supernatural realm with the story of gallery manager Malory Price. When she is invited to a reception at a mansion near her small Pennsylvania town, she discovers that she is one of only three guests-all of whom face challenges just like her own. Their mysterious hosts explain that centuries earlier, they allowed the souls of the three demigoddesses under their care to be stolen by a sorcerer. Legend says the demigoddesses cannot be freed until three mortal women find the keys to the glass box in which they are housed. Should they agree, Malory, Dana Steele and Zoe McCourt will each receive $25,000 to search for the keys, plus a million dollars if they succeed. The legend is as mistily silly as the art history Malory uses to search for clues, and the financial incentives smack more of a reality show than Celtic lore.
The next 2 books in this series are Key of Knowledge and Key of Valor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read! 24 April 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Three women (Malory, Dana, and Zoe) are invited to cocktails in the oldmansion at Warrior's Peak. A mysterious couple tell a tale of three lovelydemigoddesses who rest in an enchanted sleep, their souls locked in aspecial box. The box has three locks on the front that can only beunlocked by three hidden keys. Each key must be found by a differentmortal woman. Each woman has a single month to locate their key. The keysmust be hunted one at a time. If even one woman fails at her task, thelocked souls will be destroyed and each of the three huntresses will loseone year of life. Fate chooses Malory Price to search first.
Malory Price has always been organized. She even had her life completelyoutlined since the age of eight. Malory was manager of The Gallery andloved the position. However, the owner recently acquired a much youngerbride, Pamela, who decided to oust Malory and take over.
The mysterious couple gave Malory twenty-five thousand much neededdollars, just for agreeing to search for a key that might not even exist.If the keys do exist, and all three of the women find them, they will eachreceive five million dollars!
Flynn Hennessy met Malory when his huge dog knocked her down. Malory hopednever to see him again, yet had no choice since he was the brother ofDana. Flynn joined the quest in the hope of getting closer to Malory. Henever expected to fall in love with her or to watch an evil sorcerer tryto kill her!
***** I can only hope that books two and three will be equally asfascinating! Nora Roberts has succeeded in literally bringing a fairy taleto life, in more ways than one. This story is set in present day with asubtle dose of magic. Highly recommended reading! *****

5.0 out of 5 stars great read! 19 Feb 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
like the reader above i too bought the book just because of the name of the author. ive read loads of her work and have as yet to be disappointed with her work. this book is great - i highly recommend it. as good as any of the other great trilogies and roberts has crafted some excellent characters - some of her best yet. the plot is thrilling exciting and sexy with just enough of realism to keep it on, what could be, a wayward track. i just know that Key of Knowledge is going to be amazing and i cant wait to read it!!!
yet again amazing work - just how does she do it?!

5.0 out of 5 stars A definite read! 8 Jun 2004
This book had me gripped from the first. I have liked most of Nora Roberts books and this was no exception - I had ordered the first two not realising that there was a third. Once I had started to read this book I immediately put in my order for the third one and had finished the first two by the time the third had come! Nora Roberts has woven a tale of six people who must all come to terms with their past, present and future to be able to solve a mystery. This book has it all, romance, intrigue and magic (literally!). The three women are all independent and strong, willing to fight for the right to live their lives their own way. The men good looking and strong and able to let these women be themselves - what every women dreams of. These books left me smiling - a definite must in my book.
