    Flynn is finally coming into her power, finding her own form of magic, a very old sort of magic and more powerful than any known presently in Aetearoa. Many in the coven are still trying to treat her like a 'watcher' and disparage her. She is persuaded by the forest witch to go on her seeking trip to find her true self, and she goes alone but for her falcon hoping to meet Dundedin and learn where she came from. On her way she comes across a group of people who lived in the wild, roaming the forests and these show her such respect that i was crying and reading as no one had shown this girl any respect till now. When she leaves these people she encounters a spider and a butterfly ensnared in the web and she helps to free it but through this she learns the lesson of the web of destiny and how no one can change it. These books are so in tune with nature and the path of the Goddess and the olden ways that they are such a pleasure to read. Flynn is becoming so attuned to seeing the troubles of others and helping them through their pain, first with her own falcon who she called Oturu, then with Ash and Kano her daughter. So many things happen to Flynn upon her return home from her travels so without writing any spoilers all i can say is that the book ends on a cliffhanger which is making me cry for the next book in the series. Love the way this author writes about magic, in a fantasy world and witches and priestesses both good and evil.

    Key to the Journey is the second book in The Chronicles of Hawthorne, and like the first book is a fantastic read. It picks up from where book one finishes. Flynn is dragged before the coven, and the latest discovery ensures she is removed from all her initiate training. Hazel speeds to Dreamwood Forest hoping to seek the aid of the three hundred year old witch within, and realised too late that she lacks the skill to ensure she reaches there safely. She awakes to find herself a prisoner of the forest, hunted and stalked by unseen predictors. Flynn, fearing for her friend risks all to save her  unaware these are the first steps of her own long and dangerous journey.This is yet another skilfully woven tale by author Rue. I find it hard to believe I finished it so quickly. The book barely left from my hand from the moment I opened it. I was captivated by the story, eager to discover what lay in store for Flynn. More depth is added to characters as we witness the blooming and strengthening of relationships, and uncover secret agendas and hidden motives. The danger Flynn is destined to stop draws ever closer, and more truth about her origins come to light. I can't wait to pick up book three.

    I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.I read An Average Curse which is a fantasy for middle grade readers and older and I was looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Key to the Journey.Key to the Journey is a quick read and I liked it even more than the first book. It is full of friendship, hope, adventure and magic. As soon as Flynn starts showing signs of ancient magic, the elders want to take her out of regular training and start training her to be High Priestess. Flynn is overwhelmed but doesn't have time to even process what is going on when she finds out that her best friend, Hazel, is missing. While on this journey, Flynn and the witch of the wood decide that she needs to take her own journey and "find herself." She goes on a true adventure with just her falcon but does she find the answers she's looking for?I definitely recommend Key to the Journey for anyone who likes fantasy and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

    Flynn unlocks a few more mysteries concerning her past as well as glimpses into a very uncertain future. This writer did an amazing job with the transition from book one into book two. The ease of following Flynns journey through these written words makes reading pure joy. I love it when the tale just blooms into life while reading. As this book unlocks some of the mysteries for Flynn, it also leads us eagerly into awaiting book three. This voluntary review is based against an advance copy.

    Two months ago I read the first book in this series by Rue. Even though it is a genre I am not really fond of, I enjoyed the first book and LOVED the second book.Flynn Hawthorn, the ninth daughter of the ninth daughter, has finally realized her special power, a power unheard of in Moa Bend. Flynn’s mother can finally be proud of her. But there is a rift in the friendship between Flynn and her BFF Hazel. But now Hazel is missing and Flynn must find her. With the assistance of young Po, Flynn travels once again into Dreamwood Forest in search of Hazel.Flynn’s mother also finally tells Flynn a bit about her father. So now Flynn feels she must go on a search to explore her new-found powers and to perhaps learn more about this man from “beyond the Mist”. Accompanying Flynn on her journey is Oturu, a falcon who is afraid of the sight of blood! Flynn is amazed to discover that she now has some surprisingly rare powers.Flynn begins to feel the burden that it is up to her to find the way to reunite the Book of Shadow with the Book of Light. However those in possession of the Book of Shadow will do whatever it takes to stop her.As in the first book, the characters are delightful. Po is absolutely charming. Zip, the spunky Red Faery, returns. Even Oturu has a personality. Rue develops her characters really well.Thank you Rue for the advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Such an addictive read I could not put it aside for several hours... until I came to the end. Flynn was considered a Watcher for fourteen years, but now her magick starts to wake up and demonstrate its power. However, her magick is different from the magick of other witches in the village - an ancient form, intuitive and forceful. When she learns the truth about her father, she sets off for a journey with Oturu, an unusual falcon, on a quest to uncover her past and accept her powers. The turmoil in her village seems nothing to the turmoil in her inside and the alarming speed with which the magick develops. This book is full of awesome characters : Flynn struggling with everything that is new for her, developing new skills and forming new, unusual friendships; Hazel´s loyalty, friendship and cheerful nature; and Po´s skills and talents. Also the witch of the wood, Pounamu, is amazing with her deep wisdom and sharp mind. All the characters develop quickly but naturally and are very believable and so totally adorable. I also like the plot with its fast pace, many twists and easygoing language. The whole story went smoothly forward and entertained the reader with wide variety of emotions and situations. Add a little adventure and you will get a very promising YA book. Great read, and I am looking forward to the next book.
