I was a little unsure of starting this one after reading the Brown House but I had to know what happened next for Brylee, Lynley, and Ephraim. Once I started the first page I could not stop reading. The Crimson Key drew me in even to the story even more than the Brown House. I love Brynlee's spunky can do attitude and Ephraim being the calm steady caring brother and boyfriend he was in the Brown House. I loved seeing Kayla again and meeting others that came into the story this time around. I still didn't John but he had a purpose. I am very excited to see what happens next. I can't wait. This is an amazing story!!
I really enjoyed this book. I loved Ava and her ability to stay strong even when things were horribly wrong. Tristan was a true alpha but still was able to show his feelings to Ava. I could literally feel the character of Michael, he gave me chills at times. I loved the twists in the storyline that I did not see coming. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Marie Stephens has a wonderful gift for keeping you into the story. I could not stop reading until I knew what was happening with Ava and Tristan. I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal). I am going to recommend this book to my paranormal reading friends, and maybe some who want to try something new. ;)
