One key, one door, one man, one leap.
Alison Wescot inherited the antique store the day her mother died. It was nothing she wanted, but she couldn’t part with it. The antiques inside were all she had left of her mother. She thought she knew every piece in the store, until one day she discovered a box with a key inside, along with a letter from her mother. A key to a door she never knew existed.
Lucas Azure is the leader of the kingdom’s elite guard, a group of men whose sole purpose was to protect their territory and people. The youngest of the king’s four children, he was also the deadliest. The men in his group followed him faithfully, never questioning his orders. When Alison appeared, he knew he had to protect her at all costs.
The day Alison walked through the door, her recurring dream became a reality. The man who always remained a mystery was standing before her. There were dragons flying overhead and a castle in the distance. She was now in the Azure Kingdom.
The Azure Kingdom is part of the Skeleton Key book series. I really love the set up of this series. It is a group of almost 30 authors, each one writing a book featuring a skeleton key that unlocks a secret world. But all of the books are vastly different. Different themes, different age groups and different sub genres. I just love that idea. So whether you like young adult, new adult or adult, you will be able to find a book for you. If you want to know more information about the series you can check out the website dedicated to the books.

The Azure Kingdom is my favorite of the books I have read so far in the Skeleton Key series. It felt different and much more like a full length novel (because it was) than the previous two novellas I had read from the series. I also loved that this one had more of a high fantasy feel than a paranormal fantasy feel. The Azure Kingdom by Michelle Dare takes you to a fantasy world where kings and kingdoms are warring. I really liked that immediately there were knights from two very different kingdoms trying to convince Alison that she should be with them. I will admit that at the very start I was torn, but pretty quickly I jumped on board with team Luke.
The romance in The Azure Kingdom is excellent. It is all at once sweet and sexy. I am loving the Skeleton Key series more and more. I can’t tell you how beyond thrilled I am that even though some of the books are on the shorter end, there are also longer stories in there. Thus far, I have been really impressed with the variety in these stories. And the covers. I love the key that is present on all of them, but other than that they are all very different, but at the same time they are very well done and fit very well together. The Azure Kingdom is the book to beat in this series. So far, out of the three that I have read, it is the clear winner. I can’t wait to see what I think of the other books in the series.The Azure Kingdom by @Michelle_Dare is @BookBriefs favorite book so far in the #SkeletonKey Series. Come see why! Click To Tweet
