Pandora English had readers whipped into a frenzy at the climax of her last book, leaving the adoring fans longing in anticipation for the next instalment. Now, the wait is over, with The Skeleton Key by Tara Moss finally hitting our shelves.
The Skeleton Key sees Pandora English balance the fine line between her two lives – by day, a regular assistant at Pandora magazine, by night, flitting about her supernatural neighbourhood. Just like any regular girl, Pandora struggles with boy troubles (though hers are of the far more ghoulish kind) and evil bosses.
What sets Pandora apart is her magical gifts, which she is slowly beginning to fully understand. The book unfolds as Pandora explores the hidden secrets of her great aunt’s home, and everything it is hiding from her. Equipped with her skeleton key to the house, she discovers more than she ever bargained for.
Packed with twists and turns, this book will keep you turning pages long into the night. The plot simmers quite slowly, as you watch Pandora learn, piece by piece, the truth of what is happening in the house. As the full moon rises though, prepare for the ultimate giddying climax.
If you haven’t read the previous Pandora English books, the characters and backstory in Skeleton Key is easy to catch on to. The book is an easy, light read that sweeps you right into Pandora’s world from the very first page.
