The Key by Felicia Rogers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Book tour from Paranormal Wastelands
Genre: Fantasy YA
Description from Goodreads: A teenage girl suffering from a family tragedy, Maddie Clevenger is oblivious to the ancient mystery surrounding her. She’s young and incredibly unlucky, in life and in love. She should be enjoying her senior year of high school, but instead she is tormented by a reoccurring nightmare and a very real stalker. But all that changes when Chase Donovan, an Air Force brat with a protective streak, shows up at school. Will Chase be the key to helping her solve her stalker problem? Will he be the key to solving the mystery surrounding her family’s past?
My thoughts: Maddie has had a rough life. She is a senior in high school and is living with her great grandmother in an apparently dilapidated home. She rides a bike to and from school much to the delight of the bullies. Her parents have died in a fire and she feels like if she develops attachments for anyone, they too will be taken from her.
Enter Chase and Dougal who both take an interest in Maddie. Her life drastically changes at that point. Strange things begin to happen and she discovers that she is "the Key".
I enjoyed this YA novel. There was the right amount of romance and action to keep me reading. I enjoyed turning the pages and finding out the secrets that are kept in the pages of this novel.
This is a fast read. My only concern is that I wish the ending could have been drawn out a little more. It felt like all the loose ends came together a little too quickly.
I definitely would like to keep reading more from Felicia Rogers. One great thing is that you can purchase this for $.99 on kindle.
