Key of Knowledge (Key Trilogy #2)

Key of Knowledge


You are the Key. The lock awaits.

What happens when the very gods depend on mortals for help? That's what three very different young women find out when they are invited to Warrior's Peak.

To librarian Dana Steele, books and the knowledge they hold are the key to contentment. But now that search for knowledge must include the second key needed to release three souls held captive by an evil god. In each generation three are chosen who have the power to release them - if they dare accept a challenge that could promise them great riches but also grave danger... 

And now it is Dana's turn.

She won't be alone, for she's formed fast friendships with two very different women. But she can't allow herself to be distracted by the return of the man who broke her heart so long ago, for a danger beyond anyone's imagination is determined to keep her from completing her quest. (Summary and cover courtesy of


Dana is my favorite of the three women in this series so I think it is the best in the trilogy.  She’s smart, reads as much as I do, but still is grounded in fantastic friends and family.  I definitely can relate to her fierce love of independence and her reluctance to revisit painful history.

In this book, the women’s friendship really develops into something just as valuable as the relationships and I really like that aspect to this series.  Dana is the wild card of the group in some ways, but also brings in exuberance and enthusiasm to every scene.  You could read this within the series or as a standalone as Roberts gives a good refresher in the beginning of the book as to what happened previously.

Warning: Contains some sexual content.

Rating: 5 stars!

Who should read it? Romance fans that are looking for a heroine with quite a bit of feisty in her personality!
