The Key to All Things

While the story takes place in a fantasy setting, the focus is squarely on the romance between Avriel and Edward, with an enticing “will they, won’t they, are they?” element that enhances the intriguing mystery of what is actually real in this world. The additional twists and turns Speer (The Chocolatier’s Ghost) adds to the plot are numerous and will keep the reader constantly guessing, but everything is brought to a polished conclusion at the end. A solid, enjoyable pleasure read blending romance and mystery with a dash of the fantastical, that will entice readers across multiple genres.
