Book Description

Dec 30 2003 Key Trilogy (Book 3)
What happens when the very gods depend on mortals for help? That's what three very different young women find out when they are invited to Warrior's Peak. Light and Knowledge have succeeded in their quest, and two of the keys have been found. The final, and last, test goes to Zoe McCourt—Valor. Zoe has the courage to raise her young son alone, and to face all the adversity life has thrown at them. But will she have the courage to face a foe determined to do anything to stop the third key from being found—even destroying everything—and everyone—she loves?

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

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.

From Booklist

Zoe McCourt's new friends and business partners Mallory Price and Dana Steele have already found two keys to the legendary Box of Souls. Now it is Zoe's turn to locate the final key needed to free up the souls of the Daughters of Glass, three Celtic demigoddesses imprisoned by an evil sorcerer. Even though Mallory and Dana both found the help of a man to be important to the completion of their portions of the quest, Zoe, a single mother used to doing things for herself, is determined that for her, things will be different. But destiny seems to have other ideas in mind for Zoe because every time she turns around, Bradley "Brad" Charles Vane IV is waiting to lend a hand. With Zoe's tale, Roberts brings her delectable new fantasy-tinged trilogy to a superb conclusion, presenting yet another excellent example of this exceptional writer's skills at blending myth, magic, and romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic ending to Trilogy series. March 7 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read all 3 books in the series. All 3 women had to do something different to obtain all 3 keys. I liked it & I actually felt I bonded with the characters during the stories.
A must read for all those who love a little mystery & fantasy as well as a smidgen of romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars super ending to a great paranormal series! June 21 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Key of Valor is fitting end to the Key trilogy. It lacks the wonder of "new" of the first book, and does not back the emotional pack of the second, but it sustains the series end ends it with style. The thrill of paranormal books is being able to set your own rules and boundaries, and Roberts handles this with skill and fun.
They three books really need to be read together and in order, for it's very clear Roberts presumes you have read the book(s) that came before with each. But they are fast reads, enjoyable reads, and you are coming late to the series, as I have, you have the chance to read them all at once instead of waiting between installments.
This is some of the best writing Roberts has done this decade, and it's exciting to see Roberts venture in to the paranormal element so strongly based on Pict-Celt lore and myths as the foundation.
In the final tale, the quest to find the third key falls to Zoe McCourt, the mother. It's clear to us, if not to Zoe, that her ability to finding the third key, to release the demi-goddesses from their imprisonment by the evil sorcerer Zane, is her ability to find love with Brad Vane. It's not easy for Zoe, a girl raised in a trailer park. Her father left her and her three siblings to be raised alone by her hairdresser mother. It was a rough beginning leaving a young Zoe to yearn for finer things in life. The path to that better life seemed to fall apart when at sixteen Zoe became pregnant. Once again, the man in her life deserts her, leaving her to make a life for her and her son, Simon. That the father of Simon was a rich boy only makes it harder for Brad ¯ a very rich man ¯ to convince Zoe he truly wants a role in her life.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
leave it to me to go on a long drive and pick up the third book in the series instead of the 1st. HAD to read something so I went ahead and read it. And really joyed the premise. Very fresh tale from Roberts. Going back to start over and I am sure I will enjoy it more once I have read the first two

5.0 out of 5 stars A Trilogy where the last book was the best book June 2 2004
By Meg
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Roberts truly saved the best for last when writing this book. Zoe McCourt is a strong yet fragile character, and the final quest for the key was the strongest. After finishing this series, I wish there was more to read about them, as they were truly interesting women. A must for any fan of Nora Roberts!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so perfect ending May 27 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Key of Valor" was actually my least favorite of the trilogy. In this novel Zoe McCourt's turn has come to find the last and final key to unlock the demigoddesses soul and outwit the evil Kane.
Zoe herself is an interesting person. At times seemingly prim and proper, she turns out to be quite the protective mama bear that won't accept help. The only reason why I honestly disliked this book was the hap dash ending. Having watched her two friends go thru the same struggles, Zoe had a relatively good grasp of what was required of her as did we the reader. In her quest to find herself and confront her past, she omitted the biggest aspect, that of her child's father. At a very young age Zoe became pregnant and left in shame. While she returned back to confront her mother who felt Zoe wouldn't amount to much, she never confronted her child's father as if to say "look at me now". He was mentioned a number of times, but nothing materialized.
Zoe also had to overcome her prejudices against Bradley Vane. Deeming him a snob on first encounter, she refuses to have anything to do with him, for she is embarrassed of her roots, afraid that he will look down upon her or she won't do the right thing. Isn't that rather oxymoronic and ultimately defeatist? A self-fulfilling prophecy waiting to happen? The Goddess Rowena deemed Zoe the one that she cared the most about, the warrior mother, and yet this mother had a lot to learn and not enough pages to do so in.
