Summary

History isn't always what it seems....
With the battle of Egypt behind them, Alec and Cronin are enjoying the thrill of new love. Though fate doesn't wait long before throwing them back into the world of weird.
They know Alec's blood is special, though its true purpose still eludes them. And given Alec's inability to be changed into a vampire, Cronin is free to drink from him at will. But the ramifications of drinking such powerful blood starts a ripple effect.
With the help of Jorge, a disturbing vampire-child with the gift of foresight, Alec and Cronin face a new kind of war. This time their investigations lead them to the borders of China and Mongolia - but it's not what lies in the pits beneath that worries Alec.
It's the creator behind it all.
In the underground depths of China, amidst a war with the Terracotta Army, they will find out just what the Key is, and what Alec means to the vampire world.

Another excellent read

N. R. Walker and Joel Leslie conjure up another masterful tale of vampires, ancient wonders and impossible situations. Addictive and funny the first book was the first ever audible adaption to make me laugh out loud on my bus commute to work. Earning me several surprised looks. I proceeded to snicker and snort until my stop, unable to help myself as the books well written and perfectly delivered lines tickled my funny bone. My only nitpick is how Joel says Gengis Khan's name, calling him Jengis, like the game Jenga. But if that is my only complaint over two books and 20+ hours of audio, I think that's a pretty fine record.

Sublime

These are fantastic books. Full of action, vampire magic, humour and love. Great for a romance LOL.
Add in the amazing voice characterisation of Joel Leslie and it's raised to a whole other level of awesome.
I can't recommend these books and audios highly enough. Can't wait for book three.

Fantastic listening

What did you love best about Cronin's Key II?

The whole book, is amazing, how to pick to pick my favorite ermm, love Alex and Cornin deep bond, I found I was trying to do Jorge riddles myself(hopelessly). The whole listening to this booked that I really enjoyed reading was delightful. I highly recommend it to you

Who was your favorite character and why?

Far to many characters to name one, NR Walker has a great talent of developing her characters, There is Alex who is a human, Cornin whose a vampire, Loved Jorge, Joel Leslie brings them all to life.

What does Joel Leslie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joel Leslie has a talent at voicing all the characters, he is always a joy to listen too.

Any additional comments?

Never have read a bad book by NR Walker, listening to this was a honest to goodness joy.
