Book Review:The Earth Key

“Once you instill fear there’s no limit to the power you can wield.”



Kata Waylon is the Impossible Girl. Referred to as a legend in her society, she is prophesied to be the one that will set them free from the Imminent Darkness, an ancient force that is obsessed with controlling the remaining people of the human race.

When Ka first learned of her identity as the Impossible Girl in book one of the Elementals, Army of Fire, her world was flipped upside down. Discovering that you are the center of a myth that has been passed on for generations can do that. With the help of her boyfriend/protector Sloan, among others, Ka is on a mission to regain her strength in the form of five stones that she must possess and then destroy. Once that is done, she will strong enough to take on the Imminent Darkness, and restore balance to the universe.

The Earth Key is a fantastic second installment to the Elementals series. It was exciting, heartfelt, and full of action. Being able to look into the past and learn how it all started was very interesting, and helped build the books background and gave it a lot of depth. I loved the relationship between Ka and her mother, and the bonding and understanding that grew between them throughout the book. The fight against the Imminent Darkness gets more intense along the way, and author Jennifer L. Kelly does an amazing job of making the reader feel the urgency of what these characters are going through, and it’s a fun ride to be on.

Book Review: Treacherous Shadows

“The woods taunt me with his rustic, earthy scent.  the brush of air against my cheek lingers like the touch of his hand, like the sweet whisper o f”I love you” in my ear.  the kiss of the sun prickles over my body, the body that will never be given to him.”


Aeria Morgan and her brother are considered an anomaly in their town of Avalon Valley. Not only were they born without a father, they are the first set of twins (called Dviinu) to ever exist since the Darkness hindered families from having more than one child. With so much mystery surrounding how they were conceived, the villagers among them have taken to treating them as outsiders.

While her brother Aeron is away on a trading expedition, Aeria sneaks out to enjoy a swim at a pond deep in the woods. While there she is blind-sighted by a masked man who attacks her. Luckily, she is saved by a newcomer to town, Lyam, who had followed the suspicious looking man into the forest. After the rescue, Lyam and Aeria find themselves in a blossoming relationship, despite the reservations of her mother and Aeron.  Along with figuring out how to get her family to accept her beau, Aeria, Lyam, and Aeron have taken on the task of finding the man who attacked her.

I loved the writing style of this book. I found it flowed very well, and just beautifully authored. Although I found the relationship between Aeria and Lyam to become intense quite quickly, it is leveled out by the building of their feelings in their interactions after the initial attraction. Their emotions for each other are pure, passionate, and real. I love them as a couple, and Lyam is definitely one of my new book boyfriends! The relationship Aeria has with her brother Aeron I found to be really sweet, they take care of each other so well, and understand each other probably better than they understand themselves.

The lingering shadow of the Darkness around the village creates an interesting and haunting element to the book. Wouldn’t it be frightening to know death and love are so entwined that they impact each other immensely in ones life? That finding love or losing it determine whether you live or die.

I was already looking forward to the next book in the trilogy, but the twist that author Jennifer Parr injects towards the end has me impatiently waiting for it!

I was given a copy of this book by its author in exchange for my honest review.
