From the Keys of Lazarus Series by Michael Lackey
Feeling abandoned, after the death of her grandfather and last family member, Lucy wonders what she's meant to do. What her purpose could possibly be. But after receiving bits of paper, like a puzzle with a fractured message, she finds herself on an adventure of self and a mission to save the world! This is The Key of Knowledge, by Michael Lackey.
In this ARC (Advanced Reader Copy), that released today, I found myself whisked away, into a futuristic, fantasy world of magic and monsters. Filled with steampunk features and characters that reminded me of Deadpool and Lara Croft, The Key of Knowledge shares how determination and courage can set you on a path to greatness!
Lucy has a past she's unaware of. She's part of a legacy where people around the world, called Reapers, battle against an evil woman who's become president. The Countess is an immortal, using a special stone that allows her to never die. She's equipped with a power to take lives with a simple touch and recreate twisted, dark minions.
Quested to seek out enchanted keys, the team of Reapers must obtain them and defeat The Countess. Can they do it? Can they save the world?
The Key of Knowledge is a fast-paced, YA novel that holds your attention. I loved the magic, the fighting and the development of the story. The only thing I was missing was visual detail! There were several instances where something fascinating was taking place but I couldn't see it, due to the lack of much needed information. It didn't deter from the thrill of the story but it did hinder my imagination for visual entertainment. Regardless, the constant action didn't stop, bringing the story to an ending that walks you right into the start of book number two.
I'm please to see Lackey moving with a new book and I anxiously await his future works and stronger writing stance. Check out The Key of Knowledge- you'll find yourself caught up! I'm off to the next read. Cheers!
