I would like to thank Harper Impulse for approving me to read this book on NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

All I can say is that I am really sorry this series has come to an end. AJ didn't disappoint in this ending, Faedrah and Rhys have desperate decisions to make and the fight against evil is getting desperate.

This is the perfect meeting of fantasy and romance in every way and I loved it all. Rhys really comes into his own in the book and with Faedrah at his side they are formidable team. With every story in this series Rhys in my opinion has become hotter and hotter. Even competing with the gorgeous Caedmon for my affections.

As with the other books in this series this is fast paced and I never knew what would be coming on the next page. A thoroughly enjoyable series that lives up and matches the wonderful Golden Key Chronicles.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONCE AGAIN THE MAGIC PORTAL OPENS AND CLOSES 15 Mar. 2015
By Ellen Hardin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
i was literally counting down the days for this book to come out since it is the last part of the golden key legacy- and i was not disappointed - AJ Nuest makes me feel as though i know these characters personally and that some of them may have been friends as well the talent that makes her world so vivid- at times i feel as though i can look through the mirror and see the kingdom of austiere myself- anyway this time around rhys and faedrah are determined to take down the evil wizard gaelleod in his lair in austiere - however it is soon determined that to that - rhys will have to die- UNLESS he and faedrah go through the armoire back to present day chicago and take him out once and for all--- problem is rhys might not keep his wizard powers in the present or they might be weaker- faedrah might loose her memory when parted from the key and even if they manage to battle their way through the body guards and actually kill gaelleod they might get caught and charged with murder before they can escape back to faedrah's world--- so an average week for our brave hero and heroine- happy to say the uncle jon and oliver return as well as violet and the rest of the friends our lady has made when living in modern day chicago- a plan is decided and off they go --- and we get to engage our minds to a fun fast paced quest with lots of sword fighting- magical beasts- magical powers- ride a dregg and then a harley - there are also some very intense steamy - sexual action between rhys and his lady faedrah ---- i will not tell you how this modern fairy tale ends- but leave you with a couple of happy thoughts- 1 if you hate cliff hangers fear not- you will be able to buy the entire series in a month or so-- and 2 there are a few things left undone and quite possibly the portal will open for faedrah's brother vaughn --- as mush as i loved the first series the golden key chronicles - i loved the golden key legacy even more- thanks AJ for giving me a grand tale to read over the winter months--- and i look forward to reading whatever you are writing next

5.0 out of 5 stars An epic conclusion with promise of more high adventure in the future! 16 Mar. 2015
By Felina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have one suggestion for anyone reading the Golden Key Legacy books--if you've already read the first three before you get A Time of Reckoning, go back and read all four after you finish the final chapter!! Or before if you want to prolong the suspense then read it all as one tale. As good as they are with the pause between books, the excitement is actually elevated when you can skip said pause and read it all as one long book.

As with the original Golden Key Chronicles, this final chapter in Faedrah and Rhys' story is no disappointment. A.J. Nuest keeps the suspense and fun going literally until the last page.

The action is fast paced yet not so fast you lose touch with the characters and their individual stories and the relationship developed between reader and characters from the first. This balance, too, is maintained not only throughout this final chapter but the entire series, offering a rollercoaster ride of racing heart and tender moments that will keep you enthralled from beginning to end.

Just as all epic stories do, A Time of Reckoning ties up the loose ends to the satisfaction of all, giving closure but leaving a few crumbs to offer the promise of more high adventure in the Austiere kingdom in the future.

At least, that is my hope as a reader!

5.0 out of 5 stars the perfect ending to a series that I wish would go on forever 6 Mar. 2015
By Jonel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Absolutely, positively, undeniably fantabulous, now and forever. This story will not only keep you captivated and on your toes throughout, but it will stand the test of time becoming a well cherished favourite in your collection.

Once again Nuest has created a work of art. This story is a perfect melding of old and new, fantasy and the everyday. This is a fast paced and adventurous tale. Nuest continues to develop her vivid and larger than life world in such a way that you can’t fail to picture it. Romance abounds in its truest form. The relationship between the characters is full of that deep, lasting love that transcends ages, while also being hot and steamy in the here and now. This works its way into every aspect of the intricately crafted, at times very suspenseful, fantasy tale that Nuest tells.

Nuest writes with characters that really stand out on their own. Rhys’ in your face attitude never ceases to pull me in. Together these main characters have explosive chemistry that truly enhances the story. Their personalities are extremely well developed, allowing readers insights into their hearts, while also thoroughly enjoying them as individuals. The supporting cast of family and friends rounded out the story nicely, allowing

Swoon-worthy characters and a magical, adventurous story, how can you go wrong? This is a hot, fast paced novella that’s the perfect ending to a series that I’ve very sorry to see end. I definitely can’t wait to see what comes next from this fantastic author.

Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
5.0 out of 5 stars Sad to see it end again 6 Jun. 2016
By Karie D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Oh the sadness of this being the final installment in this series... Take a moment and just reflect the wild ride it has taken us on. I love that even using all the time travel back and forth between the mirror, it still made sense. That made it all more 'real' to me. Again, no spoilers this girl, just know if you thought the evil wizard was bad in The Golden Key Chronicles... you haven't seen nothing yet! kudos on another great read! I do hope we will see some of these characters again in a future series. 5/5 Cross posting to My Reading Reality
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, I adore this series so much 30 April 2015

Review Courtesy of April Hollingworth

This is the fourth and final part in the phenomenal, The Golden Key Legacy. It is a wonderful book that shows the strength and loyalty of Rhys and Feadrah not just to each other, but everyone else too. This book is all about choices and becoming who you are destined to be. I loved it and adore not only this series but also The Golden Key Chronicles, the series that started it all off. Both series I completely recommend. AJ Nuest, manages to bring two different worlds, with two different types of dialect together, and make them sound like the sweetest music you’ll ever hear. I can’t wait to read her future books.

Opening Scene:

“From there, we shall scour the cliff side, until the entrance to Gaelleod’s tomb is revealed.”

The Review:

Rhys had one job to do; it should have been easy, what with the nature of his powers. But when an old enemy reappears, detailing the results of his actions, Rhys is forced to make a choice. A future with Faedrah or dying before his time. Out of options, he agrees to her suggestion of leaping once more into the future. Only thing is, his powers might be a kiss in the wind of memories back in his time. Flying blind, with no plan, they prepare to fight for everything they love against a wizard of insurmountable power.
The sides are squared in a war of who controls both worlds. Gathering allies, the stakes are high and they have only one ace up their sleeves, the sigil of utmost protection built into Rhys signature. If it’s not enough to thwart the evil closing in on them, Faedrah could find herself imprisoned in the future, while her kingdom and those she has sworn to protect, lost to the mists of time.

Notable Scene:

He faced Faedrah, but she started toward her Dregg. Yep. He’d reserved himself a night in the doghouse, all right.
Snagging her wrist, he stopped her mid-stomp and yanked her shoulder to his chest. “I’m going to pay for that ‘ridiculous idea’ comment at some later date, aren’t I?”
She boosted her chin. “At the moment it’s least expected.”
And there it was. The flash of anger in her eyes that made him rock hard and aching to be buried inside her. “God, I can’t wait.”
He chuckled at her exasperated huff, wagging his brows at the sway of her perky ass as she marched off. His gaze landed on Grommel, and he eyeballed the Dregg from the tufts of its pointed ears to the deadly talons on its feet. This entire task force should have their heads examined. Too bad the crazy train had left the station sometime last week.

FTC Advisory: A.J. Nuest provided me with a copy of A Time of Reckoning by AJ Nuest. Published through Harper Impulse. Kindle Edition. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review.
