In the thrilling, final installment of the Guardians of Time trilogy, tentative guard members Matt and Rochelle have emerged as crucial players in fulfilling the prophecy of the Named. Matt has learned that he is the son of an immortal, while Rochelle is struggling with her newfound powers and her fear that the group doesn't trust her. In fact, their leader is certain that someone in the close-knit circle is a traitor-but who? As suspicions mount, friction threatens to tear apart the Guard. Will the members of the Named be able to overcome their fears and unite the Guardians of Time in their last stand against evil and chaos?

I'd put off reading this for a long time because I wasn't sure I remembered enough about the first books in the series. I wish I hadn't waited - this was excellent! I wish this series had been more popular in the US. Well written, well plotted, but perhaps a smidge more "high fantasy" that Harry Potter or The Hunger Games. Really well done.

I got the first one on Tuesday and by Thursday i read the complete trilogy. The Named: 4.5/5 Very good. It really pulls you in. The Prologue is semi-creepy but it doesn't get like that again. The Dark 4/5 Not my favorite. Its a little musy but it's still really good. Its 2/3 action 1/3 romance. The ending is very good. The Key 4.75/5 My favorite. I loved the point of view from 2 people who feel a little left out. The ending wasn't what I thought would happen. I was so surprised. The Trilogy: 4.25/5 Its a little dramatic but it brings you in.

there was never a dull momnet in this book. i could not put this book down. a great way to wrap up the trilogy.

I agree that the ending could use some work, we need an epilogue! But the book overall is quite amaing. The romances, though slightly soap-operaish, were still a nice addition to the plot. I really do wish there was another book. Definately a good read.

`The Key¿ combines adventure, romance, and mystery into one book. The surprises are numerous, and excitement is found on every page!! I definitely recommend the Guardians of Time Trilogy! It¿s the best!

to me, this was definitly the best book in the series, the end was a little bit sudden, but still good. The whole thing about Mr.Carter was a little confusing because Eathen didnt trust him, then did, then didnt, so you never really knew what was going on between Mr.Carter and Eathen. The BOok was still a great page turner though.

this book i loved it, like the trilogy was awsome, but i do agree the ending could have used some work, i also dont think rochelle should have died, but i still liked the book over all. i think the trilogy was her best work so far

This book was one of the best books I have ever read! I couldn't put it down from the moment I picked it up until I finished it! I wish there were more books after this one because I still want to know what happens after all the...comotion at the end. I love all the suspense and romance put into this book and how the first two were pieces that put the final puzzle together, especially concerning Ethan's gift and Mr. Carter. I definetly recommend it to anyone who wants a thrilling, mysterious, suspensefull, romantic fairy tale put to real life drama!

Okay, Matt and Neriah are my two favorite characters in the book? So what happens with them??? I think Neriah is a strong character and she should be in the book more.

I loved the The Named and The Dark but The Key was not what i expected. It was so good and such a page-turner but the ending was bad. It all happened so fast and i expected the 'battle' to have more pages than it did. It was to be expected that the chick died but it was so all of a sudden. And the end was strange and abrupt.Also, the whole Mr. Carter thing was out of the blue, and the death of the 2 other powerful gods was so fast. But i do understand that Marianne Curley wrote the book this way for a reason and since im not the author, i'll have to accept it.

I am very angry with the ending of the trilogy. Not because of deaths, but because it wasn't really an ending. There were many things that weren't solved. When you write a trilogy, most authors usually end the book thoroughly with explanations and conclusions to what happens with all of the characters. I did not think that Marianne Curley did this. The other books were somewhat like this but that was because it was expected that the next book was going to explain everything. There are no other books. I was disappointed, being a very big fan of this series.

yes it was sad and everything but that was SUPPOSED to happen...i still thought it was excellent!! AND I DEMAND THAT THESE BOOKS BE MADE INTO A MOVIE...WELL....3 MOVIES!!(because i want to see what arkarian would look like)(...and everyone else...of course)...and i think the ending fit...because everything went according to the prophecy. and there were other things Marianne curley had to focus on rather than isabel and arkarian.....such as.. matt and neriah

The Key, like the other two books in it's series, kept my attention from the first page to last and I found it impossible to put down. However, there was that one part, the death of a very lovable character, and I have to say it actually brought tears to my eyes. But praise for Marianne Curley. I think it would be awesome if she continued the series, but it seems she has made it final that it's a trilogy. Anyway, a must-read for fantasy lovers!

i've loved marianne curley ever since old magic. and i really love the guardians of time series. the key was really good except how it ended. it was so sad. ethan and rochelle finally admit their love for each other and then she just dies! i couldn't believe it. i think that she just should have shove ethan down and.... i don't know but she shouldn't have died. great book. looking forward to marianne curleys next book.

I really enjoyed The Named and The Dark, however, I don't think The Key was as good. The books are good although they are almost laughingly over dramatic and the writing seems kinda bare. But, what bothered me most I think was how Isabel's character practically disappeared, unless in mention to Arkarian! I thought it was pretty clearly implied in the previous books that she was the kind of person that HAS to be in the middle of the action, but she really didn't do much, and she was my favorite character

The Key was a captivating book from the first page, but was disappointed Isabel and Arkarian weren't mentioned more often in the book. I would have liked to have seen this novel told from their perspective, as The Dark was. Other than that, Marianne Curley proves to once again be a masterful storyteller.

I loved the other 2 books then i read the last one and it seemed to kinda go on forever. And then this person dies and it just ends i didnt like the ending at all...

This was the perfect book (except for one part and I think you all know which part I mean). I love Marianne Curley, she is one of my favorite authors and I hope she continues to write!!!

This is the best fantasy book EVER. I think it is even better than the Harry Potter series, which is good, but could never compare. It takes you through history, keeps you on the edge of your seat, and makes it impossible to put down, I have read the first book three times, and plan on reading it again. As well as the second The gaurdians of time trilogy is a must read, meant for the 'keeper shelf'

The book is super good but the ending is right it should be different because i mean ethan loses everything and rochelle was so powerful. she should make another book where rochelle comes back to life.although i don't think it will ever happen.
