Key of Mystery by K.H. Mezek - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Sera is a spoiled girl who walks amongst the popular crowd at school. She and her friends are thinking about which dresses to wear and the latest must-have shoes. All of this changes when Sera's father dies mysteriously. It turns out that he's been taking out all of the money that was in their accounts and now there's nothing left. Sera, her brother Salem and her mother have to get used to a more humble life and have to move into a trailer. Sera's mother is not really supporting her children and only thinks about herself. Salem is involved with a gang and becomes more and more distant every day. Will they be able to get through their grief and become a family once more?

All that Sera's father left was a black box with a key inside. Sera wears this key around her neck and feels very protective about it. Sera has doubts about her father's death being an accident and she's been having terrible meetings at night with horrible creatures. Will she be able to keep herself safe?

 Key of Mystery is a gripping story. I liked Sera from the start. She has so much to deal with, but she takes everything with her head held high. Sera is a smart girl and she's incredibly loyal towards the people around her. Sera knows she's in danger and still puts others before herself all the time. I loved to read about her journey and the way adjusts to her new life. Will Sera find out which door will be opened by the key she holds so close?

Key of Mystery is an amazing story about a young girl who has become a very important person to the supernatural world. Sera's once so ordinary world is now filled with vampires, nasty smelling zombies and mysteries. I love the idea of a secret chamber that can only be opened by an enigmatic key. K.H. Mezek doesn't give away everything at once, she skillfully divides her suspense, and I liked to follow this road together with Sera. Key of Mystery ends with a spectacular cliffhanger and I absolutely can't wait to read the next book in this series.


If you enjoy reading supernatural stories filled with secrets you should definitely read Key of Mystery. Please keep in mind that it's the first story in the Night Angels Chronicles and that there's an open ending.
