Nora Roberts did it again with the Key of Valor. "Valor" was an excellent conclusion to the Key Trilogy series.
I loved it

I truly loved the third book in the Key series. Very well written, kept you on the edge until the very end. Unexpected twist and turns and it was so good to be with the characters again. Sorry that this was the end of the series. Nora Roberts truly knows how to spin a tell to keep you reading. It is alway so hard for me to put her books down when I start reading them.

I had never read any of Nora Roberts' books before this year until my friend insisted I start with the Key Trilogy. Needless to say, I loved them all, especially Key of Valor. I have since reread the trilogy 3 times. Now I know why Ms. Roberts is such a popular author - she is a great writer. Zoe, the heroine, is strong, sexy and so well developed as a character. We get snippets of her in the first 2 books of the trilogy but this is her shining star. A single mom who is not afraid of anyone or anything. A bit too proud but devoted to anyone she considers 'family'. Does not let anything stop her in achieving her goals, and the big one here is finding her key. Carve out some time - you won't be able to put this novel down!
Publishers Weekly, 2003-12-22 This book concludes Roberts's Key Trilogy, in which mortal women quest to unlock the spellbound souls of ancient demigoddesses. The third and last woman to make the attempt is hairstylist Zoe McCourt. Like her friends Malory and Dana-heroines of the previous installments (Key of Light, Key of Knowledge)-Zoe has a single month and a cryptic set of clues with which to find her key. The angry sorcerer Kane fights her efforts as friends both mortal and immortal lend their support. As she searches, Zoe is courted by Bradley Vane IV, the sexy heir to a home improvement empire. She's not sure which is more difficult: accepting that she's magically linked with Brad or trying to quell her suspicions long enough to accept his love in the here and now. When she finds the courage to do both, the souls of all three goddesses are finally released. Smart but struggling single mom Zoe is an appealing heroine whose working-class grit finds a perfect foil in Brad's patrician confidence. Scenes involving her feisty son, Simon, temper the story's mysticism with humor, and the joining together of the trio as a family is genuinely moving. When it comes to combining sweetness, sexiness and the supernatural, Roberts proves once again that she is the most powerful spellbinder of all. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
