#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts opens the door to one woman’s search for truth and passion in the first Key Trilogy novel. 

Malory Price’s life plan has hit a snag. She’s in danger of losing her job managing an art gallery in Pleasant Valley, Pennsylvania. A welcome distraction comes in the form of an invitation to a cocktail party at Warrior’s Peak, an infamous estate overlooking the town. But no one else she knows has been invited…

There are only two other guests: Dana Steele, a librarian, and Zoe McCourt, a single mother. On the surface, it seems the women have nothing in common, until their mysterious hosts tell them a story—and offer them a challenge.

Legend has it that the souls of three demigoddesses—one an artist, one a bard, and one a warrior—have been locked in a box that has three keys. Now it’s up to Malory and the others to find the keys. Their reward: a million dollars each.

It all seems too bizarre to be true. But none of them can ignore the financial windfall they stand to gain. And now Malory—with her soul of an artist and eye for beauty—must find her key first. She soon discovers that whatever locked the souls away is dark, powerful, and greedy…and it doesn’t want the women to win.

I really enjoyed this book and have already ordered book 2 of the trilogy. I enjoy Nora Roberts' books, but her books that involve even a touch of the supernatural are her best. She has gotten away from it in her recent books, and I wish she'd bring it back. In my opinion, these are her best stories. I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling this way. There are a lot of romance writers out there, but a romance writer who can combine romance, mythology and the supernatural,and keep the reader so riveted that they are engrossed in the fantasy, should keep the successful formula going. This romantic/fantasy genre is Nora Roberts' best work.

How can anybody say this book is good!! It was HORRIBLE!!!! The plot was soooo far-fetched, I was in shock! I like SOME of her books, The Chesapeake Bay series in particular, but this book was absolutely GAWD AWFUL!! I will NOT be reading the rest of this series.

As i sat down with the book i could not put it down. I loved the thrills and relationships. To know that we hold our own "Keys" in and for life to all that we do is important. Having freindships and relationships are a big key part in life!! I was awe struck by how Nora Roberts puts her mind into this series as well as many others!!

I did not want this book to end. I can't wait for the second book. I love Nora Roberts books. I've cried, I've laughed, they are great books to read. Can't say enough. Thank you Nora Roberts.

Such a great book. When I first started reading it I wasn't so sure but every page took you deeper into the story. A definate page tuner. A must read. Nora Roberts has done it again with this book, cant wait to start the next one in this series.

Key of Light is the first in the "Key" series by Nora Roberts. I had/have very high hopes for this series, as one of the main three characters is a librarian, and there is a mystery to be solved.So far, I am NOT impressed. The mystery is VERY farfetched, the men in the book seem kind of cartoonish, and the women...I don't know. I'm just not liking them very much. Zoe seems to be suffering from Michael-on-LOST syndrome ("My boy! My boy! Why aren't we talking about my son? Let's talk about my son! He's the light of my world!"); Dana, the librarian, is supposed to be kind of a smartass but isn't coming off very well; and Malory, the focus of the first book, goes through such a rapid transformation that I didn't even care about it. Oh, one second you have a strict life plan and now you're going to quit your job, propose marriage to someone you've known two weeks, and everyone is just hunky dory about it?And the mystery they have to solve! Oh, Nora, Nora Nora Nora. Could you be any more bizarre? Three women are called to a spooky mansion in the middle of nowhere and are given a task to find three keys so that ancient souls might be set free? Gee whiz. I think I've gotten cynical in my old age. 3,000 year old gods and an evil sorcerer...sure, that sounds interesting. But not in a 350-page book with a highly improbable romance and weak characters!I wonder if I've just read one too many pure fantasy books. Can I not pick up a corny fantasy and enjoy it? Maybe my tastes have changed - or maybe this just isn't the right time for me to read these books. I wonder if I'm just sick of Nora Roberts. I haven't read any in a while. This might just be one of the "bad ones". I will probably at least give the next book a try to see how the librarian does. If I'm not impressed, I don't think I'd feel bad about skipping the third one.

Fun romantic story that kept me reading for hours.

The best book of the trilogy. I enjoyed the fantasy twist in this trilogy. However, unlike the ghost story in Nora Robert's Garden trilogy, the fantasy storyline in this trilogy seemed to stay pretty static throughout each subsequent book which made the remaining two books seem to be simply re-hashing the first.

This was the first of Nora Robert¿s supernatural-themed books I¿ve read, and it wasn¿t quite what I expected. I guess I wasn¿t expecting the supernatural part to be so blatent? Regardless, I enjoyed it and read it in about a day and a half. I liked all of the characters (especially Moe!), which is actually pretty unusual for me with this kind of book. Usually there¿s at least one of them that gets on my nerves. I prefer her romantic suspense, but I¿ll definitely finish this trilogy.

To be able to escape this world for theirs is the greatest gift an author willing gives of themselves freely. Thank you, and anxiously needing to start searching for the second key!

I loved this book. Paranormal, romance, great characters. Nora Roberts has once again brought to life wonderful books that catch your attention and hold it the whole way through. Makes the wait for the next book almost unbearable to be waiting on.
