Key of Behliseth is a book about Lucky and his amazing adventure. Lucky is a homeless gay kid with an upbeat attitude and a great personality. At the age of 12, Lucky comes to Earth with absolutely no memory of why he is here or how he got here. Alone and on the streets for three years, he panhandles and tries to remember his past.


Now, at the age of 15, Lucky is noticing strange things and feeling unsafe. No wonder--the evil witch, Isa, who took Lucky away from his family, has found him! With an unlikely guardian helping him, Lucky begins to remember things, like the fact that he has magic, and there are such things as dragons! With his memory returning and the mysterious guardian helping, he faces his biggest challenge yet—fighting Isa and her army. By winning, Lucky has a chance to get back to his rightful home. Can he win the battle against Isa? Can Lucky make it back home? Find out in this epic thriller!


Key of Behliseth was a great book full of epic twists and turns! Lou Hoffmann expertly wove words together to create this larger-than-life masterpiece. Lou is a very descriptive author, using descriptions to make both the characters and setting come alive. For example, Lucky had “exasperatingly thick hair,” and Maizie "bounced out of the trees like a big ball of animated sunshine.”


This story had all the elements of a five star novel: attention grabbing descriptions, vivid characters, lively action, suspenseful conflict, and a memorable plot, all fused together to capture your attention. Because of the "buffet" of words, it was such a fun book to read! This story was full of action and fantasy, and I loved every word of this work of art! I would recommend this book to ages 12 and up because there is some death and killing.
