Key of Valor

This review addresses a series, The Key Trilogy, by Nora Roberts. Book 1 Key of Life, Book 2 Key of Valor, Book 3 Key of Knowledge.

A Nora Roberts novel is usually a simple boy-meets-girl-romance with a story sprinkled throughout. Out of the box a tiny bit, The Key Trilogy is fantasy, i.e., witches and Celtic gods type Sci-Fi. A character even walks through a mirror as in Alice In Wonderland. But, Roberts does stick to her formula of chic-lit with the typical mawkish romance scenes *roll-eyes-hit-fast-forward* and an intriguing mystery.

All the characters are drop-dead-gorgeous, and much of the story is will-he-won’t-she romance. Two of the Celtic gods are personified by a handsome couple that own a mansion in a pretty town. They invite three women, complete strangers to each other, to complete a mysterious task (hint: involves keys, duh), ergo three books, one for each.

Anyway, if you like Nora Roberts, saccharine love scenes that do not fade-to-black, a bit of mystery, paranormal/SciFi, these will do.

Brilliance Audio, 2008, narration by Susan Ericksen (same reader as the In Death series) is great as usual. Each book is about 10 hours of listening.

Chic-lit fans enjoy!

It was so wonderful and I'm sorry it's over.

This trilogy was so great. I really am sad that it's over. I just wish she would write a fourth so we would see how it all worked out for the three couples and the ones from the other world.

The Crown Jewel of the Series

Roberts does not disappoint in this final installment of the trilogy. If you're credit-frugal, you could purchase books one and three only, without losing anything pertinent; however, if you are in the mood for a bit more "indulgence"...

It's the best of the three

I love this narrator. This is the best one of the three and I think the best written. It's fantasy and if you don't like fantasy maybe this is not the series for you.

recording background noise

The only thing that bothered me was the door bell at the recording studio in the background kept going off every 10-30 seconds.

Favorite Nora Roberts tale

The Key Trilogy is my favorite bedtime story. I’ve listened to these books numerous times as I go to sleep and as I travel. Well performed & lovingly crafted by one of my favorite wordcrafters. Thank you Nora!

End of the trilogy

Great ending to a good trilogy. Good characters and a good story. I preferred this trilogy to the Three Sisters trilogy as the men had an actual role in this one and didn't sound nearly as one dimensional. Would listen again. Very happy with these. I understand that the Irish/Welsh/mixed accents for Rowena and Pitte would be difficult for a reader but these sound a little like 'Darby O'Gill' in parts - small gripe, otherwise a great performance

Susan Erickson

The narrator in these Nora Roberts trilogy is one of the best.The cousins O"Dwyer Dark Witch,would have been much better to listen to had she narrated all of Them. I suggest that if you have any more Irish stories she should narrate or search for eloquent people who can annunciation and do different accents,.D.Wallace

wasn't let down by the final book.

Where does Key of Valor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

so far this year - one of the best.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Key of Valor?

the fight near the end and the ending itself.

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

the way she brought the characters to life.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

the story kept me listening to see what happened next.

Any additional comments?

this was a very good book. unlike some of nora Roberts trilogies this one kept the pace up to the end instead of going flat and leaving me disappointed..
to get the final key zoe has to look at her past and the choices she made.
as a whole the trilogy comes out at five stars.
recommended one of her best trilogies..
