I am vociferously passionate about good books. And I hate adverbs.

ARC Review – Cronin’s Key 3, by N. R. Walker

Cronin's Key III - N.R. Walker

I just fell into this one, watching Cronin and Alec fight stuff that seems to be beyond them, at first. Gargoyles! Or, rather, Zoans, who somehow came through a portal the moment Alec was changed.

 

I was beginning to get impatient, and really wanted to know about Alec’s powers as a key. And in this last installment in the series, finally things are getting explained.

 

This time, Cronin and Alec are facing time-hopping, space-defying creatures and it goes bat-shit crazy for a while in the middle of the story. In ALL the good ways.

 

I cannot fathom the amount of research that goes into Walker’s stories. Also, the sheer amount of imagination.

It is simply mind-boggling how everything gets twisted out of shape to be put together oh-so-prettily at the end. Every time, I’m thinking Walker is never going to tie this up in time. And every time, I am wrong. I love it.

 

There is romance. There is action. There is mostly fade-to-black sex (for which I am eternally grateful). And there is a lot of things happening, rushing, fixing, fighting, talking, shifting, and, at last, dancing.

 

My kind of book. Yeah, my kind, totally.

I was given a free copy of this self-published book from the author. A positive review wasn’t promised in return.
