...the suspense never flags, and such ado over print material carries its own nostalgic allure.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

A rare book. An ancient code. A new trilogy that “starts off with promise” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) from the New York Times bestselling master of passion and the paranormal.

Within the pages of very rare books some centuries old lie the secrets of the paranormal. Abby Radwell’s unusual psychic talent has made her an expert in such volumes—and has sometimes taken her into dangerous territory. After a deadly incident in the private library of an obsessive collector, Abby receives a blackmail threat, and rumors swirl that an old alchemical text known as The Keyhas reappeared on the black market.

Convinced that she needs an investigator who can also play bodyguard, she hires Sam Coppersmith, a specialist in paranormal crystals and amber—“hot rocks.” Passion flares immediately between them, but neither entirely trusts the other. When it comes to dealing with a killer who has paranormal abilities, and a blackmailer who will stop at nothing to obtain an ancient alchemical code, no one is safe.

... the contrived story is peppered with character inconsistencies, romance clichés, and plot twists that fail to surprise.

In the final chapter...Krentz is at her best, tying up all the threads of the plot ... but leaving a few doors open for future developments.

The addition of the sensual and sexual physical attraction between Abby and Sam...just adds more to an already fabulous plot which is a page turner from start to finsh!

...it's completely unsatisfying. Ardent followers...will hardly find any surprising turn of events; Abby and Sam can easily be replaced by any of the characters in her other novels and the difference would hardly be discernible.
