by Nan C. Cataldi
When a young boy unknowingly recovers one of the Keys of Being from an old jacket, he meets the magical Fae-rens, protectors of Gaeya (Earth). They have come from the past on a quest to return the key to its proper place. But they are not the only ones interested in the Elka, the Key of Healing and Rebirth. The entire world is in danger from the Evil One and his followers, who want to use the key for a more sinister purpose…
“The Lost Key Of Being is a classic tale of good versus evil told in the manner of a Grimm’s fairy tale. Author Nan C. Cataldi has created a believable magical kingdom, Wren, that parallels Earth, Gaeya. The powerful Glymirra, the Grand One, is the force of goodness that protects the people and all living creatures of Earth using the powers of the four Keys of Being. But she must protect the keys as well, for if they were to fall into the hands of the Evil One, chaos would reign supreme, like it did during the two World Wars. The author weaves a compelling story around its human characters and the characters of Wren, bringing in the very frightening characters of evil to add conflict and strife. This is a fantastical tale of magic and the mystical powers of good and evil. Well done!”
