The thrilling conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Lone City trilogy, which began with The Jewel, a book BCCB said "will have fans of Oliver's Delirium, Cass's The Selection, and DeStefano's Wither breathless."

For too long, Violet and the people of the outer circles of the Lone City have lived in service of the royalty of the Jewel. But now, the secret society known as the Black Key is preparing to seize power.

While Violet knows she is at the center of this rebellion, she has a more personal stake in it—for her sister, Hazel, has been taken by the Duchess of the Lake. Now, after fighting so hard to escape the Jewel, Violet must do everything in her power to return not only to save Hazel, but the future of the Lone City.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING Along With Some Plot-Twists! I read this book about a month ago, and it's a good thing I did. The Black Key is the amazing conclusion to the Jewel Series. It's a great read as Violet goes back to the Jewel in disguise as a maid, so she can help save her little sister Hazel who was kidnapped by the Duchess of The Lake, as revenge for Violet's escape. In this thrilling book, there are many plot-twists. Some of them are to be thanked for occurring. Others are tragic. Read the Black Key to find out what becomes of the island, or if you just want a thrilling book to read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different then expected. Quite enjoyed it. A very quick climax, and then end. But still enjoyable. Not quite what it felt it was building too, but still, a good read. This series is now done for me - on to something else for me!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good book, but not as good as the previous two. I was highly anticipating reading this one, after how it's predecessor The White Rose completely blew me away. I had high hopes for how Amy Ewing was going to wrap up this much beloved series, and unfortunately it didn't quite go in the direction I was hoping for. As always, I loved Amy's writing style, and getting to get back into the world of Violet, Ash and Lucien was, as always, a huge treat, but I found myself slightly disappointed in the ending, and I guess I was just expecting a little bit more from it. However, I still recommend this series overall, even though it didn't end the way I was hoping for it too.
