#BookTour: The Order of the Key by @justine_manzano @XpressoTours #Giveaway

The Order of the Key
Justine Manzano
Publication date: July 9th 2020
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult
Jacklyn Madison never expected to be attacked by a beast on an evening snack run. Add a rescue mission enacted by a trained regiment of teenaged warriors, and her night officially becomes just like a scene from one of her beloved comic books. Turns out, her parents were once members of the Order of the Key, gifted humans that protect humanity from creatures spilling through inter-dimensional rifts. Unable to control her newfound abilities, Jacklyn and her family rejoin the Order.
After an attack on their headquarters leaves Jacklyn questioning their leadership, Kyp—the boy who led her initial rescue—reveals a darker secret. The Order’s leader may be corrupt, and Jacklyn’s questions could put her family in danger. Drawn into the search for proof, Jacklyn must use her guts and magical brawn to protect her family, her friends, and herself from the monsters spilling from rifts, and those hiding within the Order.

Rating: ★★★★
My Review: Jacklyn’s world is turned upside down the day of her race.  Never in her wildest dreams would she believe she would be attacked by monsters and thrown into a new world and a new life.  Can she learn to use her new powers to protect the ones she loves and remember her past best friend Kyp.  I was hooked from page one of this book.  I loved the setting, how it blends seamlessly into a hidden world within our own and how fast paced that this book was.  I also loved that there is so much action in this book as well as the magic system.  Justine Manzano has a way with writing that draws you into the story as well as amazing character development.  I loved how we learned more about Jacklyn and other characters by getting glimpses into their past.  My only complaint for this book is I wish it was longer!  I can not wait to read more from Manzano.
