I loved the other three parts in this series and couldn’t wait to find out how this story would conclude. There were still so many questions unanswered and Caedmon’s and R ...more
The action packed ending left me with an 'Ah-Ha' conclusion and the sweetest Epilogue I have ever read. Caedmon and Rowena's story came full circle and left me feeling completely satisfied.
*Warning: may contain spoilers, and this is book 4 and you do need to read these in order*
This picks up right where book 3 ended. Rowena and Caedmon are now in Rowena's 'realm', which we now know to, in fact, be the future (for Caedmon's 'realm'). She and Caedmon join her best friend and "wizard" Oliver and his partner, Jon, in trying to figure out how to save Caedmon's castle and land, known as Austiere. Now it's Caedmon's turn to be disoriented in a new realm, only he didn't lose his memories. ...more
I Loved Rowena she is my kind of girl, Strong, Bright and Bubbly the shrewd Antique's Dealer is unsuspecting that she is in fact the Sorceress and magic Key holder linked to saving the Mystical Kingdom of Prince Caedmon Austiere, but just one look at each other and it's more then kingdom's that are at stake.

All the praise I've had for the first three books could just be repeated verbatim here - short instalments that pack a real punch. The story is one full of dichotomies - the sweetest romance, with the more racy aspe ...more

Strong language: Yes

Stepping in right where Caedmon's Curse left off, this novella exploded onto on reader. This is almost a role reversal of the first novella, Rowena's Key, as both Rowena and Caedmon dive through the magic mirr ...more

Braedric’s Bane takes us full circle, with Rowena and Caedmon landing right back where we began in Rowena’s Key in contemporary times with Rowena’s friend Oliver. I was so thri ...more
My Thoughts: I really liked this series. It kept me interested throughout. In this book, Caedmon is a fish out of water. It was funny the way he interacted with Oliver's partner. He did not know what to make of Oliver and Jon. Eventually, he realized Jon did not mean to make him uncomfortable. I also liked how Rowena was steadfast in her support of Caedmon. She refused to stay behind.
The Story: At the end of the last book, Caed ...more

But what is more exciting in this novella is Rowena and Caedmon’s journey back through the magic armoire to the future (where Rowena originally came from). Caedmon, the quintessential gentleman-prince, is thrown literally naked into the apartment of Rowena’s best friend Ollie and his outspok ...more
Everything comes together in this final installment of The Golden Key Chronicles. Questions are answered and plot lines weave together to reveal the big picture. The plot moved at a comfortable pace, with a clear climax and resolution, the action in this book was well developed.

As soon as AJ told me she had ARC's for the final in The Golden Key Chronicles and asked if I would like to read, I cried yes and started reading straight away!
I read this final instalment in a matter of hours! AJ writes in a way that you just have to keep turning the page. The pace of the final book is fast just like the first three and I really enjoy the fast-pace of it as it makes it an all the more exciting read. The only criticis ...more
A wonderful and beautiful ending to an epic, romantic fantasy! This is by far my favorite book of the series. A.J. doesn't disappoint at all in this conclusion of the Golden Key Chronicles series. (I even think she left it enough open if she ever chose to write more about Rowena and Caedmon, wink wink, hint hint A.J. LOL)
"Your beauty outshines that of Helios, my love." The wonder...the fierce devotion in his gaze sent joy cascading through her limbs. " I am humbled bey ...more

With Braedric's Bane, I found myself making excuses not to read because I didn't want to say goodbye to these characters or this realm, but, of course, I couldn't help myself. This book, and the entire series, has earned a place of honor ...more
