Review by: Morgan HobbesKeymaker's Daughter, written by Anya Stassiy, is an interesting urban fantasy with the gods of ancient Greece as the theme. A tad slow to start off but stick with it and you'll be rewarded with a story with heroes and heroines to root for as they try to save the world.
Aurora, daughter of a famous lock maker, is drawn into the scheming of the gods when her father mysteriously vanishes a week out from a major planetary alignment event. Brought into her father's world, things aren't quite as they seem, and Aurora soon discovers herself surrounded by gods of legend.
Hades, king of the underworld, it seems is hatching a plot to release the titans from their prison to conquer mankind and put the gods back on top.
Without knowing who to trust, and seemingly betrayed at every turn, Aurora must find a way to stop the titans from being released. Lots of interesting historical tidbits along the way, and a fun blending of the old and the new. Twists and turns along the way to keep you guessing who and what is going on.
The narration by Natalie Bamford was good, though a little on the slow side for my tastes. A quick tweak to the playback speed made it better suited for me. Plenty of distinctions between characters, and polished production free of any obvious issues to pull me out of the moment.
To sum up, Aurora is a worthy heroine to add to the pantheon. Move over Hercules, Aurora might just have you beat.I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
