An adventure in the style of The Man From U.N.C.L.E, with a touch of paranormal and a healthy dose of easy sexuality, Song and Key is a fun romp through the countryside of Romania, following two secret agents on their mission to do their boss a favor. Alix Bekins and Connie Bailey partner up to write a classic secret-agents-on-a-mission book, easily read in a single afternoon.
Song and Key is a mash-up of the contemporary and paranormal, with romance and a dash of mystery to please every fan. It does take advantage of a few too many tropes, but the agents that are the book’s namesake make for a dynamic duo who fill the pages with friendly barbs as they fight for the top spot in their secret agency, the Global Law Enforcement Network (GLEN, for short). Keller Key is a cocky, self-identified pansexual with the best record in the agency. Sevastyan “Seva” Song is half-Ukranian, half-Korean, and is determined to take Key’s spot out from under him. The two are forced to partner up and head to Romania to investigate a suspicious death, and they soon become wrapped up in the local superstitions surrounding the local, ancient forest and a long-abandoned abbey. But not everything is as it seems—there are darker, more human forces afoot, even as they battle with the paranormal and their attraction to each other. [Read more…]
