Publication date: January 14th 2020
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Urban Fantasy

A forgotten past, a dark mage, and an unyielding curse.

Another team beat free-spirited archaeologist Olivia Perez to the dig of a lifetime, and now she’s left with the choice to wait for scraps or brave a dangerous, dusty tomb in hopes of finding other priceless artifacts. Her reward? A mysterious key she has no idea is cursed. Soon, Olivia realizes she’s brought home more than just an ancient rarity.

Malevolent visions begin to plague her. Unnerved by what they reveal, she casts away the key…unknowingly placing it into the waiting hands of a dark mage bent on destruction. Only when a shifter agent from the Paranormal Intelligence and Tracking Organization arrives searching for the key does Olivia realize what a huge mistake she’s made. 

Forced to team up with the ill-tempered shifter, her journey to reclaim the cursed key leads down a twisting path of dark histories, dangerous magic, and deadly obstacles. But Olivia’s efforts to take back the ancient relic before the dark mage can destroy the lives of humans, shifters, witches, and fae alike are thwarted by her own dark past…and a price steeper than what she’s willing to pay.

Fans of Tomb Raider and Ilona Andrews will love the blend of urban fantasy, magical adventure, and paranormal romance in THE CURSED KEY from Miranda Brock and New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Hamilton!

My Review:

5 Out Of 5 Stars

Genre: Faeries, Mystery, Supernatural, Suspense, Urban Fantasy, Werewolves, Witches--

Olivia is on a archaeological mission in the Amazon when she finds herself in the possession of an old key. What she never could have guessed was that the key is being sought after by many interested parties for many different reasons. Olivia now finds herself on a dangerous quest with a moody partner for answers since her actions may have caused massive destruction.

I don't want to give anything away for this story since I love how everything unfolded so this will be a pretty short review for me. Cursed Key was such an exciting, easy to read story- I could have easily read it in a day if I hadn't been pacing myself so I could enjoy the story longer! Picking it up was thrilling for me because I knew that when I did I would be transported to somewhere else, a place full of action and danger, magic and surprise, a perfect dose of escapism to get lost in. I had been waiting for months to get my hands on this story, I pre-ordered it as soon as it was available because I had a total case of cover love and the plot sounded right up my alley with an urban fantasy feel to it. I think the best way to describe this story would Indiana Jones meeting an urban fantasy world filled with magic, shapeshfters, witches, fey, and who knows what else I have not had the chance to encounter yet! I had very, very high expectations for this book and Cursed Key fit them perfectly.

And no, this is not a standalone, but instead the first in a series, with an ending that showed the mess is just getting started for Olivia- and I have no idea how I can wait for the next book! This is the perfect read for anyone who loves the movies Indiana Jones or the Tomb Raider, and fans of action and adventure stories with a whole heaping of magic! I also hope that the next book includes a possible love match with a certain moody kitty...

From an early age Miranda Brock has always loved fantasy and adventure everything. Since she doesn't live in a world of enchanting powers, mythical beasts, and things unbelievable she has decided to write about them. (Although, if you happen to see a dragon flying around, do tell her.) Born in southern Illinois, where she still resides with her husband and two children, she grew up running through the woods, playing in creeks, and riding horses. What started out as writing poetry grew into short stories and eventually led to her first novel, Souls Discovered. Miranda lives in the country where she finds inspiration in the simplicity and beauty around her. With the help of a ridiculous amount of coffee and some good music she writes whenever she gets a chance.
