5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent end to a great trilogy
Ms Roberts excels herself and previous trilogies with the last in the series, Key of Valor.
The storyline was witty, the interactions between Brad and Simon were a joy and the chemistry/conflict between Zoe and Brad was very touching and real.
Add to the mix the deepening friendship between the three women and their respective men, the setting up of Indulgence...

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy read, but expensive
Too expensive for what you're getting, which is essentially the same old story being churned out again & again, with only the characters, setting & adversity changing between stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb ending to a truly magical series, 25 May 2004
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ms Roberts excels herself and previous trilogies with this novel, the last in the series, Key of Valour. It follows Key Of Light and Key Of Knowledge and yes, you have to read them in order or you will be lost!
The storyline was witty, the interactions between Brad and Simon were a joy and the chemistry/conflict between Zoe and Brad was very touching and real.
Add to the mix the deepening friendship between the three women and their respective men, the setting up of Indulgence and lets not forget Kane and the desperate race to get the final key (as he's changed all the rules) and you have a recipe for some magical reading.
Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome ending to the trilogy!, 18 May 2004

Three demi-goddesses are under a spell. They sleep in glass coffins, beyond the Veil. Their souls are locked away in the Box of Souls, which can only be opened by three keys turned by human hands. In each generation three human women are born who have the means to find the three keys and end the curse. Each, in turn, has one moon phase to find a key. If the first fails, game over. If the first succeeds, the second woman takes up the quest, and so on. If any of the three mortal females fail, they each lose an undisclosed year of her life. If all three succeed, the demigoddesses will awaken and each of the three human women will receive one million dollars.
The first two keys have been located. Zoe is now up at bat. Zoe's demigoddess is the warrior. Her truth is Valor and Courage. The fierce mother demands her nine-year-old, Simon, be protected from Kane. In no way can Kane be able to use Simon against Zoe and her quest. Rowena and Pitte are way ahead of Zoe there. Protection spells from them, as well as, from other gods behind the Curtain of Dreams, were weaved around Simon immediately upon the second key being found. Simon's protection is guaranteed.
However, there is still Brad. No matter how much Zoe battles to guard her heart from Brad, she is losing it. Even if she gave her heart to Brad, what about her son? How can Zoe trust Brad not to hurt Simon? Oh, not physically. But Simon clearly enjoys Brad's company. (And the game room from heaven in Brad's mansion is a young boy's dream!) If it does not work out between her and Brad, Simon could be emotionally hurt.
At the same time, Brad is definitely needed to help with the quest. Since Zoe has to find the very last key, Kane, the evil sorcerer, will do ANYTHING to make sure Zoe fails!
***** I do not know if the first of the trilogy is my favorite or this one! Since Kane changed the rules in the last book, the quests have become deadly, to gods and mortals alike! I knew, as the reader, that this book would be the most breath taking, simply because the last demigoddess was a warrior. I knew there would be the ultimate battle, before and after the key. Therefore, needless-to-say, this book ROCKS! Fast paced, mysterious, romantic, and a bit of magic within each page of this fairy tale come to life. Highly recommended series! *****

5.0 out of 5 stars super ending to a great paranormal series!, 21 Jun 2004
By 
Deborah MacGillivray "Author," (US & UK) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
Key of Valor is fitting end to the Key trilogy. It lacks the wonder of "new" of the first book, and does not back the emotional pack of the second, but it sustains the series end ends it with style. The thrill of paranormal books is being able to set your own rules and boundaries, and Roberts handles this with skill and fun.
They three books really need to be read together and in order, for it's very clear Roberts presumes you have read the book(s) that came before with each. But they are fast reads, enjoyable reads, and you are coming late to the series, as I have, you have the chance to read them all at once instead of waiting between installments.
This is some of the best writing Roberts has done this decade, and it's exciting to see Roberts venture in to the paranormal element so strongly based on Pict-Celt lore and myths as the foundation.
In the final tale, the quest to find the third key falls to Zoe McCourt, the mother. It's clear to us, if not to Zoe, that her ability to finding the third key, to release the demi-goddesses from their imprisonment by the evil sorcerer Zane, is her ability to find love with Brad Vane. It's not easy for Zoe, a girl raised in a trailer park. Her father left her and her three siblings to be raised alone by her hairdresser mother. It was a rough beginning leaving a young Zoe to yearn for finer things in life. The path to that better life seemed to fall apart when at sixteen Zoe became pregnant. Once again, the man in her life deserts her, leaving her to make a life for her and her son, Simon. That the father of Simon was a rich boy only makes it harder for Brad ¯ a very rich man ¯ to convince Zoe he truly wants a role in her life. Brad is determined to be at Zoe's side as she searches for the key, but Zoe's past experience with men sees her expecting Brad to bail one the quest is over and she doesn't want to be hurt again, doesn't want her son hurt.
This book sees Rowanne and Pitte taking a stronger role in the outcome. Since Zane has failed to abide by the rules of the Enchantment, Rowanne and Pitte risk their chance to return to the magical kingdom, in order to protect Zoe and her son.
It's a super ending to the trilogy. So if you like paranormals, don't miss this very fresh and vital tales!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite Nora Roberts Trilogy, 9 May 2009
By 
K. Zeiner "book worm" (St Andrews, Scotland) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This is the last book in the Key Trilogy and it is just as engaging as the other two. After having had a chance to get to know Malory and Dana in the other two books this last one focuses on Zoe's quest.
If you liked the other two books you'll love this one, if you didn't like them that much there's probably no point in reading this one but it makes a lovely light read if you're heading to the beach or want to just spend an afternoon inside curled up with a good story
