Nyckeln One must be afraid of power always Power is dangerous and must be handled with caution carefully examined and cared for Above all it must be sharedWhat a mess So confusing So longI'm so happy i got to read this trilogy It's wonderful The plot The world building The characters Especially the characters It's not a common YA series Not everyone gets a happy ending not every girl gets a love interest and this girls are definitely not stereotypicalThis girls have grown so much on me They are not perfect They feel real The have grown so much since the first bookThe best of all Witches and the apocalypse I could've sworn I had already written a review on this when I finished it a bit ago but apparently not Or if I did it's definitely gone I thinkAnyways I enjoyed this book somewhat extremely The ending the characters the plot — it was all very right and fitting As I have said when I recommend this series to anyone the plot isn't all that original but the take on the trope is very well done It doesn't have to be too original to workThis series is ultra close to my heart I believe it was a series that kind of got me into reading again and the years prior to and following the movie which was a huge disappointment but they filmed the majority of it in my town so I don't know what to feel I was fangirling hard over this series And as any fangirlfanboyfanperson would know there's nothing disappointing than raving about a series only to reach a terrible ending This book didn't disappoint and I was so relieved The first book drove me crazy because I loved it so much — and then I went into the second which started off slowly but then Nicolaus started to reveal stuff and shit went down I also believe I enjoyed the second book than the first because the friendship between the girls and how much they actually need each other became clear And how the characters changed through the second book was amazing — especially Ida As for this book some characters were annoying but it was 'necessary to the plot' so to speak And I feel like some characters — Felix for example — weren't given nearly as much time in the spotlight as I would've liked But that's just a small complaint And need I say Vanessa and Linnéa Anyway I was relieved than happy when I reached the ending Relieved because I was pleased with the ending and because I had finished a series for once I'M NOT OKAY Who saves the world most of the time? School girls with super powers or super guys in latex costumes This time we are talking about school girls with super powers And most of the time such stories turn out to be very cheesy and the center of attention is some boy not uhummm saving the world But I think MStrandberg managed to wrap up the story pretty well and give us an enjoyable book I think this one of my favorite YA fantasy series What I particularity liked was well built environment and characters Yes you could smell Swedish meat balls aka Swedish signature style that can be felt in many Swedish books The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to be precise but I like this harsh realism Swedish authors have they aren't afraid to talk about alcoholism bullying suicide lesbiangay relationship death and still keep in touch with magic Most situations could be easily recognized by teenagers so I think author did a good job by portraying them Minoo Ida Ana Karin Lineya Vanesa and other are pretty different but still well written and finished many people can identify with them I liked the fact that it was not only about magic and saving the world but also about school life friendship family Most authors make these relationships very shallow really most of the time parents just somehow don't know that their kids are you know saving the world fighting evil geniuses and have many super powers while there they were uite deep and important What I disliked sometimes it was hard to fully understand with all the lies reticence and falsehood many characters told what was really happening or was supposed to be good and evil I know world is complicated but sometimes I felt puzzled and lost But it's great that author masterfully managed to finish the series but also to leave the open door for additional books that would be happening in the same universe So yup I liked it I read this book in SwedishThe Key is another great book in the Engelsfors trilogy It's definitely too long but still a really good book with an interesting storyline and lots of plot twists I never knew what was going to happen next or who you were supposed to trust view spoilerMinoo has always been the character that I’ve related the most to Therefore at first it made me so annoyed that they couldn’t just accept that Minoo was joining a new circle But then I suddenly found myself feeling terribly worried for her and sometimes even afraid of her hide spoiler A fantastic ending for a great trilogy The writing the plot and the characters all got stronger with each book resulting in a story that I never wanted to end Was this book perfect? No not really It started of slow it was probably longer than necessary and there were unecessary moments here and there but I was so involved in the plot and the girls's lives that I didn't mind So I'm giving it all 5 stars and know that I'll carry the characters with me for a long timeThe stakes were definitely higher in this book With the apocalypse right around the corner every little decision was important alliances had to be formed and the girls' friendship and lives in general had their ups and downsThis book was much darker and the girls had to confront a lot of hardships like loss manipulation power and abusers All of this with the end of the world looming They all made mistakes or made tough decisions but I always understood their motivations even if I didn't always agree with them I especially appreciated the fall outs between the girls as it brought a new depth to their friendship and individual personalities Her words wound and crush and cause pain than most because there's always some truth in what she saysIn this novel there's a point of view from the Borderlands which is a sort of misty limbo filled with glimpses of moments in time I thought it was used pretty well to fast forward some events though the book still ended up being really long I'm not really complaining about it but the first 200 pages 0r so dragged for me After that it started to pick up and then the plot moved faster and faster By the time I finished I wanted to keep reading and reading about this world and charactersBravery without common sense never helped anyoneAs with the other books there was a bit of mystery I loved that we don't have all the information so we never know which alliances are going to work It kept me guessing and I couldn't really figure out what was going to happen even though I had my suspicionsIn the end this series surprised me Not only did the plot go places I wasn't expecting and explored themes I never thought it would but the characters were also beautifully developed The writing got better with each book and it definitely ended on a high note These books are long they take their time to tell you each girl's story and carefully lay out the plot so it might not be for fast pace lovers But if you like urban fantasy with witches the apocalypse and friendship in the mix give this trilogy a go ☆☆★★ 45 magical stars ★★☆☆ I just reread my whole review and realized that I forgot to tell you what this book is about oops I don't really wanna spoil you though so everything I'm gonna say is that it's about witches and demonsI rarely read stuff that isn't mainstream everybody has read it YA I have this fear that if a book doesn't have at least 10K ratings or an average rating of 4 stars I wont like it That obviously I should go for the read books the books with tons of reviews so that I can analyze everything about the book beforehand you know to be sure that I'll like it This is just a habit I've always had and the thing that sucks about it is this it makes me not even second glance at books like Nøkkelen The Key I have seen this book multiple times at some bookstores not that far away from home and in the beginning it did actually catch my eye It was like a huge light was shining just on that one book It wasn't just that it was the only book on the shelf that I hadn't read but the title and cover were also a little mysterious So I went home and googled it and after about five minutes I had already decided that this book wasn't for me Five minutes of googling That is how picky I am That is how undeniably stupid I amSpeed forward to a couple of weeks ago You can probably understand how surprised I was when Gyldendal sent it to me in the mail I mean was it a coincidence? Or are there some higher powers somewhere that were just cursing at me to PICK UP THAT AWESOME BOOK ALREADY STOP BEING A SNOBLet me tell you this book was fantasticI mean YES it's slow And if the characters don't interest you then you're as good as doomed Even though this is a fantasy trilogy it's actually really character driven Luckily for me I loved hearing about all of the characters; Linnèa Vannessa Anna Karin and Minoo We get to know them we bear with them through their ups and downs through struggles and stress and pressure that almost makes them snapLinnèa is the emo girl I guess Her father is an alcoholic and her best friend is dead She rarely opens herself up and is terrified of hurting both herself and others Vannessa is the party girl Anna Karin the bullied and Minoo the really shy and school smart At first they all seem like the typical stereotypes but as the story moves on you get to be inside their heads and understand that they aren't just what I described above They develop alot throughout the book they grow up I know that some of the people that have read this book thought that the book was too slow but in my opinion I think it was as slow as it had to be for the characters to believably mature into the people they are at the endAs for the fantasy element it was slightly in the background sometimes This didn't really bother me because even if it wasn't all up in my face at all times I could still feel that it was there And the ending totally made up for it anyways because when the ball first went rolling it didn't stop for any breaks The second half gave me so many heart attacks I couldn't even count them The pacing sped up a bit and things were happening all the time There was no time for me to breathe and the answers to everything took me completely by surprise I could not for the life of me figure out how it would end As soon as I thought I got it a new thing popped up and made the story take a whole other turnI will definitely be trying to find witch books in the future And TRY to not judge books too fast For being a very big book it was so intense and full of turns You never really knew what was coming and I've read 845 pages in 5 days So there it is Man I love the characters So much A wonderful trilogy I love it The final installment of the Engelsfors Trilogy—an international sensation with rights sold in 29 countries— The Key combines thrilling action and dark magic with all the passion and drama of teen life The result is nothing less than explosiveBy the end of the second book Fire the remaining Chosen Ones know they are the last defense against the mysterious demonic forces that have been plaguing EngelsforsThe Chosen Ones are still coming to terms with their loss when evil strikes again barely a month after the showdown in the school gym They have no chance to recover and no choice but to rally together to try to prevent the apocalypse—even while their personal dramas threaten to tear them apartTime is running out for the Chosen Ones to fulfil the prophecy and save the world but whether they succeed or not one thing is certain Everything will change my babies
