The key to saving the world hangs from her neck…

Sixteen-year-old Evangeline Theopolis doesn’t know her father, her mother is having delusions, and her godmother is, at the very least, a murderer. A clandestine Order called the Archivists is trying to find and kill her for a magical talisman she believes is just a necklace with an antique key charm. And an ancient and lethal female Sect is bent on kidnapping her.

To fight her deadly adversaries Evangeline is forced to use both her wits and the supernatural talents she never imagined she possessed. Her journey takes her to the steps of Mount Olympus where she will discover her true identity and have a decision to make: accept who she really is or take responsibility for the destruction of the world.

PANDORA’S KEY is a fast-paced, edgy urban fantasy about a young woman’s treacherous path to self-awareness and the realization that sometimes you have to play the hero in your own life’s story. Fans of Suzanne Collins and Stephenie Meyer will appreciate the magic infused gritty realism, flawed yet powerful heroine, intricate plot and cast of characters to love, despise or pity.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Indie
“With vivid imagery, compelling characters and plenty of bursts of action, this first novel weaving mythology and contemporary teenage troubles is thrillingly memorable!
[In] this fresh, intriguing novel, Fischer is clearly laying the groundwork for a trilogy that will successfully continue to bring ancient mythology forward into a modern tale of self discovery...[and] Fischer’s fast pacing and numerous plot twists are sure to keep the reader turning the pages...”
Publishers Weekly
“In this inventive debut installment of The Key Trilogy, an Oregon girl’s life is uprooted by the discovery of her pivotal role in a prophecy stemming from Greek mythology... Surprising twists add to the story’s intrigue. The co-author of several sports autobiographies, Fischer hits her stride in this quick-paced novel.”
