When I first met Andrea, she had just signed on with my publisher. We were at a writing conference together and I looked at her and went, "now that is what an author is supposed to look like." She was stunning. Beautiful. I was immediately intimidated. Now, it's not that I'm ugly. At least I don't think I am. But I'm short and wide and . . . well, you get the picture. She was tall and slender with curly brown hair and I immediately thought she would make an awesome character in one of my books. What I didn't know, was that she was as kind and non-judgmental as she was beautiful. I love people like that. Once Andrea and I got to know each other we immediately hit it off. Now, I tell you this, so that you know the truth. Andrea is awesome. She is as beautiful inside as out. And that makes what I'm about to admit that much more awful. I really wanted to hate her book. I did! When I found out that my publisher had signed another YA fantasy author who had wolves in her book, I wanted to hate it. How dare she! How dare my publisher! That's how I felt then. Boy, was I ever wrong. Though the wolves in her story are integral to the plot, they are not primary characters. Her wolves are black and an apparent enemy to the protagonist. Mine are white and in one case IS the protagonist. Our books are nothing alike, and to top it off, Andrea is an incredible writer, with a depth of detail that is lacking in so many books. She balances excitement with thought, external conflict with inner, and adds just the right mix of mystery and realism. It is a very well written and enjoyable book, and I can hardly wait to share it with my sons. It's one I know will become a favorite. To purchase The Key of Kilenya for yourself go HERE. Believe me, you won't regret it.

The Key to Kilenya is the first book in the Kilenya Series by Andrea Pearson. The main character, Jacob Clark, is a fourteen year old whose main aspiration in life is to do well enough at the upcoming basketball tryouts to be selected for the school team. As the story opens, little does he know that his life is about to change drastically. In fact, so much so that basketball tryouts will become the furthest thing from his mind. As Jacob and Matt, (Jake’s sixteen year old brother) finish up a game of one-on-one wolves come out of the woods behind their house. Jake takes off running in order to lead the wolves away from his little sister who is playing in the back yard. By the time he stops running he is lost and can’t find his way back home. The next thing he knows he is faced with dangers previously unimaginable to him. He also meets a group of “beings” who inform him that his help is needed to find the Key to Kilenya which had been stolen from them. The adventures he has along the way make for a compelling, action packed, can’t put it down story. There were so many things I really liked about the way the author has portrayed Jacob. He strikes me as a typical fourteen year old who although he is self-confident, he still displays a bit of timidity and shyness. This is very noticeable both when he is told that he needs to be the one to rescue the Key to Kilenya, and when he meets Aloren, a female not much older than himself who will be accompanying him and his companions on their trek. In the ways of talking with girls he is a novice and wishes Matt were there as he would be much more confident and self-assured in this type of social situation. The way the author developed, slowly, the relationship between Jacob and Aloren was not only plausible but also logical considering the challenges each faces as seek to achieve their individual objectives . One additional thing I enjoyed about this book is the creativity and imaginativeness the author used to develop the many different characters both good and bad. What an imagination to develop so many different types of characters, each with their own unique characteristics. As a Fifth grade teacher I require my students to read a minimum of 30 books per school year. In order to do so I must be available as a resource for them to come to for good book recommendations. It was with this in mind that I picked up this book. Having read it in four days I will certainly recommend it. I found it to be one of those that you just can’t put down. The only concern I have is that they may find it to be the same way for them and then I’ll have the difficult task of getting them to put it away when they need to be working on other things in class. This book was definitely well worth the time spent reading it and I look forward to continuing the series with The Ember Gods.

The Key of Kilenya-Andrea Pearson. Evil is afoot in the world of Eklaron. The Lorkon, a nasty species has stolen a powerful key being protected by a species known as Makalos. A fourteen year old earthling boy named Jacob has been summoned to help them recover the key. There is something more sinister involved and Jacob along with his companions must seek the key and return it without getting killed. The quest is not an easy one. Andrea Pearson has written a compelling fantasy about teamwork and the usual good versus evil theme. The story has many twists and turns and loads of suspense throughout it and will keep the reader fascinated from start to finish. The story is appropriate for ages twelve and up. I give this book five gold keys.

This book was recommended for younger ages -- but I am an adult and I really enjoyed this story! I enjoyed the different characters and the storyline and I am already starting on the 2nd book in the series. I highly recommend it if you enjoy adventure, humor, magic and different worlds!

The Key of Kilenya (Kilenya #1) by Andrea Pearson is a wonderful fantasy for middle grade to teens (and adults too!). It is fast moving and filled with strange creatures and magic. Jacob finds himself in a new world fighting for his life, other people's lives, and their whole world. There are surprises, surprises, surprises! Lots of action, emotions, great dialogue, and humor. A fun and enjoyable read. Can't say more, hate spoiler reviews. Great job!

The journey with Jacob Clark is one adventure I loved reading about. I think this story is great YA book. The storyline moves at a nice pace and the reader is constantly pulled deeper into the adventure with Jacob. The Key of Kilenya is an amazingly written story with memorable characters. Each character has a personality of their own that ends up sticking with the reader while making the reader care more about them. The adventure is well written and the storyline provides readers of all ages with imagination and action packed details.
