The Key (The True Reign Series, #1)
by Jennifer Anne Davis
Within these pages lie kingdoms with castles and princes who fall in love with fair maidens, but
make no mistake−this is no fairytale.
His father’s kingdom is on the brink of upheaval and at the center of it all is an ordinary girl who
could be the key to its undoing. When faced with the ultimate choice, will he choose the girl he’s
falling in love with or the kingdom he has sworn to protect?
An ordinary girl with an extraordinary past. All she wants is to be free. What she doesn’t realize
is that freedom comes with a price she can’t afford to pay. She’s forced to accept the proposal
of a prince she despises, even though her heart belongs to someone else . . . his brother.
Seventeen-year-old Rema lives in a brutal kingdom where travel between regions is forbidden,
people are starving, and looking at someone the wrong way can mean death. Nineteen-year-
old Darmik is the king’s son and Commander of the King’s Army. He spends his days roving the
island, doing his father’s bidding and trying to maintain control over the people.
When a chance encounter throws Rema and Darmik together, they share an instantaneous
connection, but any sort of relationship between them is strictly forbidden. Darmik’s brother, the
Crown Prince, notices Darmik’s interest in Rema and, in a calculated, political move, blackmails
her. Faced with an impossible choice, Rema is forced to sacrifice her heart in order to save her
As Rema is taken to the palace with the Crown Prince, Darmik confronts the growing rumor
that a legitimate blood heir to the throne exists and is trying to overthrow Darmik’s family. In
Darmik’s quest to hunt down and kill the threat, he discovers that nothing is as it seems. Locked
in the king’s castle, Rema finds herself a key player in a massive power struggle. When Darmik
shows up, she’s not sure if she can trust him. The line between friends, enemies, and loyalty
becomes blurred. As truths are unlocked, Rema understands that she just might be the key to
finding the rightful heir and restoring peace to the kingdom… if she can manage to stay alive

~Review By Melanie – #NerdGirlVamp – 5 Stars!!! ~
This book is your next MUST READ! A cover to cover, could not put it down, even if I tried kind of read. The characters just jump of the pages and the craving to know what happens next is intense. No words in this book are superfluous (apart from the last 4 .. but I will get to those) so read them carefully. Even the prologue offers clues that can help you try and unscramble the mysteries held within the pages that demand your attention. Often YA books can leave an adult wanting but this is NOT the case here. Now back to those final 4 words …. end of book 1 ….. END OF BOOK 1???? Even though I went into this KNOWING there was a cliffhanger coming I was STILL caught off guard. The urge to THROW my kindle across the room is definitely not an understatement here and the only thing that saved it is without it I wouldn’t be able to read book 2. Incredible!!. V””V

The Long Version:
I graduated with Department Honors from the University of San Diego with a degree in English.
While working to earn my teaching credential, I was a legal assistant for an attorney.That’s
about the time I finally married my high school sweetheart. Once I received my credential from
USD, I taught high school English until I had my first child.
Currently I am a stay-at-home mom. I have three kids, one large dog, a gecko, and a frog.
A couple of years ago, I entered a writing contest about motherhood and won. My essay
“Caution: Warning Lable Not Included!” was published in the anthology Manual for Motherhood,
reaching number one in the Parenting section of Amazon! This sparked my need to write on a
daily basis, and I have been writing ever since!
My debut young adult novel The Voice was published by Lands Atlantic in January 2013. The
Voice is nominated for three Novel Grounds Literary Awards: Best Indie, Favorite Five Star, and
Best Book Boyfriend!
My second book,The Power to See, is a new adult novel and was released in October 2013.
My third book,The Key, is a young adult light fantasy novel, was released in November 2013.
I’ve always had a passion for reading and writing. Being transported into another world and
experiencing things beyond my imagination – what could be better? Besides being an outlet and
a love, I hope to write books that encourage all to read.
