Synopsis

We all have a choice—but we can’t choose the consequences.

Jacob Clark is chased down a path that takes him to another world—a world where he is a wanted young man. The Lorkon want to control him and the special powers he possesses. The people of the new world want him to save them from the destruction of the Lorkon. All Jacob wants is to go home, but even that choice has consequences. If he waits too long to decide, the new world and the one he came from will be destroyed.

As Jacob looks for people he can trust, he finds himself in the center of a fight for freedom—both for himself and the people he’s come to know. And when he meets a pretty girl named Aloren, everything he understands about his role on Eklaron is challenged.

Jacob has no idea where the path he chooses will take him, but once the choice has been made—bring on the consequences.

Praise and reviews for The Key of Kilenya:
“The Key of Kilenya is full of adventure and wonderful, mythical-type creatures—totally unique. This book is like Fablehaven meets Harry Potter with a sprinkling of Lord of the Rings. A good, fun, clean read for the whole family.” – Jennifer Hurst

“As a mother, it's refreshing to know there are authors writing fantasy, like The Key of Kilenya, that is not dark and depressing.” – Kimberly Job

“Andrea balances excitement with thought, external conflict with inner, and adds just the right mix of mystery and realism.” – Karen Hoover

“This is the beginning of a middle grade series that is sure to be great. Both youths and adults will enjoy The Key of Kilenya.” – Jewel Adams

"To be quite honest, I don't usually read books in this genre. However, I loved Harry Potter so I took a chance and I have to admit, I liked it! A lot!" - Mandi Slack

"Overall, like the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling, I would most certainly say this book is worth multiple reads." - Reviewer

"It is an adventure filled ride that is perfect for middle grade students who love action and science fiction." - Cindy

"The fantastical elements really feel original. In fact, reading this put me in mind of the creatures you would come across in Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis, because the creatures really aren't the norm." - Lisa

"I love the Harry Potter references, as a typical teen has most definitely become familiar with those books." Heidi - Goodreads Reviewer

"As in Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan, Harry Potter by JK Rowling, Fablehaven by Brandon Mull and other great books, a teenage boy lives an ordinary life while another world thinks he's something special... It's gripping all the way through." - Patricia

"Get this book. You won't be disappointed unless you have no imagination and don't like books such as the Harry Potter series (JK Rowling), Fablehaven (Brandon Mull), Percy Jackson (Rick Riordan) or movies like Stardust, etc." - Karl, Reviewer

"Similar to Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series, this is just a very fun, creative, exciting adventure!" - Debra

"The story has many twists and turns and loads of suspense throughout it and will keep the reader fascinated from start to finish. Reminded me of the Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan and Fablehaven written by Brandon Mull." - Karen

"If you like books written by award winning authors such as Brandon Mull (Fablehaven, Beyonders) and Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson), than you will LOVE 'The Key of Kilenya.'" - Sarah

"I love the Fablehaven books by Brandon Mull, but the first one started slow for me. The Key of Kilenya doesn't start slow." - Rhonda Lynne Bingham
