Highly recommended. The storyline and characters in this fantasy novel paint a glorious tale of a familiar world intertwined with the mystical. Pandora's Key is a beautifully tragic coming of age story that throws innocence into the snares of power and evil. What I see in Richardson Fischer's writing that grabs me most is her ability to suck you into an intelligent world of imagination. There is depth to her characters and a fascinating history into mythology. What a breath of fresh air! This is my first time reading Nancy Richardson Fischer and I can't wait to read more.
