Pandora's Key (The Key Trilogy #1)
by Nancy Richordson Fischer
Release date: November 19th 2011
Pandora's Key has its ups and downs like every other books but significant because of the twisted Greek mythology is intriguing.
On her sixteenth birthday Evangeline is given the key necklace that has been passed down generations in her family-mother to daughter. But when Evangeline mother starts to get sick and Evangeline is hallucinating she can't help but think that something is really wrong. Malledy is a Archivist with a disease (Huntington's disease) he wishes for a cure but there isn't hope. But there is a chance that Pandora's descendant will cure him-if he finds her.
Firstly, i would say that Pandora is a great book but it also had some negative points. One, the slow pace after the exciting start started to bore me, however, it did pick up so i did enjoy it. Secondly, what really annoyed me was Evangeline. Evangeline is a strong character but she didn't put much effort in actually believing on the Pandora. She only started to realise like nearly a quarter to the end and that really ticked me off.
On the other hand, i loved the Greek mythology twist in the story! For a start i love Greek mythology so it already had a positive point before i read it and then i found out that it was about the Pandora's Box (of course because of the title) it added another plus side to it. Then, another thing i loved about the Greek mythology twist was that Malledy was a Archivist. Archivists are people who gets mission to get things (and let me tell you they are not ordinary stuffs.) These are immortal things that we humans or any mortal can never lie their eyes on.
Therefore, i would give it a rating of 2.5. I would recommend this to readers who likes Greek mythology. I'm hoping to read The Key To Tartarus soon! The teaser was too much to handle!
