The second Faedrah Austiere walked into his life off the canvas, everything in Rhys McEleod’s world stopped making sense. Not only does her story sound like a Grimm’s fairy tale, evidently he’s been cast as the villain. If that isn’t enough, the mirror inside that old, beat up armoire at her uncle’s condo is supposedly a doorway to another world. Ever since the pathway opened, something inside him has seemed…off. If what his muse says is true, they are headed for an epic showdown, but he isn’t about to let her go. Nothing is more important than Faedrah’s protection, even if her parents refuse to accept him.

Though certain their fates are bound by more than the golden key Princess Faedrah wears around her neck, it is paramount Rhys’ true identity be kept secret. Should news of his bloodline ever reach her kingdom, their entire quest to save her people could be lost. Their only hope to prove his loyalty is to steal the map to the dark lord’s Crystal Crypt. Yet her a plan endangers her beloved more than the accusations he faces in her kingdom and, to escape evil’s grasp, she and Rhys must take a leap of faith beyond her wildest imagination.

Thank you to Harper Impulse for accepting my request via Netgalley.

This is the second book in the Golden Key Legacy Series. After finishing the first book A Furious Muse I knew I had to find time in my schedule to read the rest of the series.

This book picks up right after the end of the first book. Faedrah has just discovered who Gaelleod is and is working out her next move.

I don’t want to give too much of the story away so I’ll just say that this book is full of some twists that I did not see coming. There are some revisits to some old characters (for those of you that have read the Golden Key Chronicles) as well some new and interesting ones. I particularly enjoyed the scene where Rhys meets Faedrah’s parents.

As with all of AJ’s books she really pulls you into the world she has written, whether that be the present day or the Austiere Kingdom. You forget the world around you and fall into the world she has created.

I am itching to get myself wrapped up in the rest of the series.

About A.J Nuest

I am a multi-published, award-winning author who lives in the middle of a cornfield in NW Indiana. My loving husband, two beautiful children and a bevy of spoiled pets have agreed to stay and, in exchange for three rations per day and laundry service, tolerate my lunacy. While I spend most days happily ensconced in crafting romance across a multitude of genres, an underground coup has been percolating. The dogs just informed me the cat is secretly vying for dictatorship.
