What critics are saying: 

The Key

Reviewer Penelope Anne Bartotto from InD’tale Magazine: “From beginning to the heart-wrenching ending moment, the reader will be enraptured by the depth of the characters Ms. Davis has crafted. Like fine jewels, each character shines brightly or glows menacingly, precisely as they should be imagined. Good and evil battle evenly for the spotlight, yet never overshadow each other – a perfect balance in plot and style! The journey from innocence to deep understanding by Rema is beautifully played out with a dramatic flair. Prince Darmik’s conflicting emotions and allegiances clearly present themselves. The reader will laugh, smile, cry, and scream as each page passes by, bemoaning the very last sentence . . . True Reign is the most appropriate series title, as it defines the writing style to the letter.” 5/5 stars.

Erin from Between the Pages: “I can’t come up with the words needed to express my love for this book. The Key by Jennifer Anne Davis is one incredible journey. . . . The Key is a rich tapestry of vibrant colors and depth. The story is intricately layered and the characters are marvelously fleshed out. . . . I think everyone would find enjoyment with the story because there is so much complexity to it. It really does have something for everyone. A fantastic story! Hurry up part two! I give this 5/5 stars.”

Hope to Read: “Jennifer Anne Davis’ writing shows that she is an especially seasoned author. She has an engaging style and her latest book The Key shows that she is an author who will undoubtedly be popular for a very long time. . . . Jennifer Anne Davis has built engaging characters from the first to last page. Rema is impossible not to love and cheer for at every turn. King Barjon and Lennek are villains even the Reaper would be afraid to cross. An epic YA fantasy that I recommend to all YA fans.” 

Crystal from Crystal’s Many Reviewers: “I am completely IN LOVE with this book and can’t wait for the next book!”

Dvora from International Girls YA Book Club: “This book is full of action, suspense, and my favorite, love. [Jennifer’s] writing is so beautiful, it made me feel like I was right there with the characters. I felt the bonds that were created between the characters and the pain of the secrets that were kept from each other. I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a great classic novel.”

Isabelle Peterson from Fictional Boyfriends:  “Jennifer Anne Davis creates a world like no other with characters so rich and complex, you will feel like you know them. The Key will leaving you clamoring for more, and thinking about the story for days to come. I highly recommend for anyone of any age. Without reservation, I give this book 5-page-turning-stars.”

The Power to See

Lustful Literature: “Jennifer Anne Davis takes you on a ride up until the very end, which made reading this so exciting. You will have a love/hate relationship with all the characters, even the drug lord (yep I did).  Seriously, I did not expect what I got from this book, and that is a good thing because I could not put it down. Now if book 2 could come out as soon as possible, MAYBE I could narrow down the EVIL guys and get all my answers.”

Not Everyone’s Mama: “What we have here is an old fashioned drug lord arranged marriage, take over the family business type of deal.  Kind of. It went so much deeper. I did not expect all the twists and turns and how complicated each connection would be or how all of these little bits and pieces would come together to make me say aha! Did I say wow?  I did.  That is actually exactly what I said when I closed the book. . . . Loved it!  If you like some suspense to go along with your romance you are going to love The Power To See!”

Between the Pages: “WOW! This one was a definite page turner! I couldn’t read this fast enough to see how it was going to end! There are so many characters and their lives intertwine to create this soap opera type story! Ms. Davis has given us characters and a storyline that will keep you on the edge of your seat…will the good in people prevail over the bad? Will they help each other out of tough situations? Will they stand up to the evil that is Salazar? The story could totally become a movie or mini series! If you are looking for something different to read then this is the one for you!

Verna Loves Books: “I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a suspenseful, thrilling, and romantic book. As soon as I started reading it I had to keep reading to figure out what was going on. It pulled me in from the beginning to the end. You find yourself attempting to put all the pieces together, but let me tell you first hand you never will because even I didn’t see half of what happened, coming.”

The Voice

Kendall from Book Crazy: “I cannot put into words how amazing this book was! I can hold my hands up and say that it is honestly one of the best books I have ever read! I don’t think that I have ever loved absolutely everything about a book until this one! The plot, the characters, the emotions in this book were extraordinary!”

Got to Read Those Books: “Just finished reading @AuthorJennifer’s The Voice. In one word wow. Just wow. #speechless #beautiful.”

Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic: “This book was incredible! I couldn’t put it down and I was completely captivated by the story and the characters. I am keeping my fingers crossed that Jennifer is making this into a series because I NEED more!!!”

Renee from Reading Renee: “Why should you read it? It is one of the most compelling novels written on the subject. While it does have it’s moments of shear sadness it has so much love and healing.”

Jessica from Jessica’s Book Reviews: “First I love, love, love that the story took place in San Diego; not only is it my hometown but I adored how accurate the description and detail to my hometown was in the story. Everything from the houses, the breakfast foods, the street names, the high school, especially the mention of the lack of a school cafeteria and food carts around the quads, it all made me feel like I was back home again. I loved it.”

Robyn from Robgirlbooks: “From page one, I was hooked. Audrey pulled me into her world of pain so thoroughly, I had to follow her to the other side. I needed to be there every step of her journey back to herself. And I’m glad for it because I met her awesome aunt, a high school teacher and a woman with a heart full of hurt. I fell in love with the twins next door, friendly Caleb and anti-social Justin. We only really meet one of her brothers, but he offered a glimpse into the life Audrey had before everything changed. Jennifer Anne Davis doesn’t shy away from the terrible subject matter surrounding her main character. She gives evil a face, a name, and a smell. She makes him real, which makes what he did real. First time readers are lucky because they get to be hit with page one and feel the amazing pull of a compelling read.”

Tiffany Talks Books: “I applaud Jennifer Anne Davis for tackling such sensitive subject matter and writing a book that I did not want to put down until I reached the very last page.”

Words – so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.
