The Golden Key Chronicles, A.J. Nuest

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

This was originally released as a series of four novellas, now you can get it as a complete novel, 360 pages for just 69p. Bargain! I much prefer to read a tale in one book. It’s a fantasy romance set in both the present day, and back in time in another world, where magic is normal and various creatures roam….
Rowena is an antiques dealer and has brought home an armoire. She finds a hidden comparement with the gold key, which her friend Violet tells her is very valuable and a genuine antique. It turns out to be the key to another world, where Rowena is destined to save a realm from destruction…she doesn’t know that of course and its up to Caedmon to convince her. At first like most of us she thinks she’s being pranked, but gradually comes to believe the story, and follows Caedmon into his kingdom. There they undergo adverntures, disasters, capture and escapes, and they each undergo huge challenges before they can finally be together.
It’s a fun read, more like a YA ( maybe it is? I didn’t check..) but that fine for me as I do enjoy some well written YA from time to time. It’s a real escapist read, taking the reader on an adventure into the past via the present.
I loved the rapport between Caedmon and Rowena, how she struggled with her lost memories but didn’t just sit back and wait for rescue, but worked for it herself. That meant when Caedmon did return, even though she didn’t remember him and didn’t trust him, she had the skills they needed to fulfill the prophecy.
It’s a good read for young and older readers, probably not one I’d re read but it was an enjoyable way of losing several hours.
Stars: four, solid fantasy fun.
Arc supplied via author.


Edit: today (25/05/2014)  just noticed its only 69pence…i don’t know how long this offer is for so I’d get it now if it’s your sort of read.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
