War has begun. Only the united front of six gods can fell Aterus’ corruption. Yet the only one who can bring the gods together and save Ohr is missing.

When Kole leaves his world behind in search of a hidden god who can save Ohr, he faces floating islands, crumbling lands, and distorted gravity. With the portal home set to reopen in mere hours, Kole must navigate this strange landscape, release the god, and find his way back before the war is lost.

After dark secrets of his past come to light—what he truly is and will become—will Kole want to return? Or will he leave Ohr to its fate?

Parris Sheets skillfully crafts a fantastical realm filled with unique challenges that keep the reader eagerly turning the pages. The ability to blend elements of mystery and adventure creates a compelling narrative that draws readers into the heart of Kole’s quest.

“One of the strengths of the story lies in its character development. Kole’s journey is not only physical but also a profound exploration of self-discovery. The revelations about his past add layers to his character, making him relatable and compelling. The supporting cast of gods and other inhabitants of Ohr add depth to the story, each contributing to the intricate tapestry of the novel.

“The author excels in creating vivid and atmospheric settings, allowing readers to immerse themselves fully in the fantastical world of Ohr. The descriptive prose paints a picture of the unique challenges and wonders that Kole encounters on his quest. The ability to evoke a sense of awe and curiosity adds a rich layer to the overall reading experience. The Hollow Key is a stellar blend of fantasy and adventure, offering readers a gripping tale of sacrifice, self-discovery, and the enduring struggle between light and darkness. Parris Sheets has crafted a world that lingers in the imagination...”

“Author Parris Sheets has crafted an immersive and imaginative fantasy reading experience in a richly imagined world filled with magic, mystery, and the weight of destiny. Sheets utilizes detail, emotion, and atmosphere to create a captivating narrative with a great balance of world-building, character development, and suspenseful plot twists. Kole’s journey goes beyond the initial quest of saving his world and expands into a profound exploration of identity and choices that young adult readers can reflect back on in their own lives.

“The vivid and cinematic descriptions of the fantastical landscapes enhance the sense of wonder, making it easy for readers to get lost in the adventure. The pacing is smooth and engaging, never lingering too long, and always delivering good variety in the blend of action, mythology, and personal discovery. This creates a compelling narrative that keeps readers eagerly turning the pages.

“Overall, The Hollow Key is a thrilling addition to the ‘Essence of Ohr’ series, offering both escapism and thought-provoking themes, and I would not hesitate to recommend it and the series in general to fantasy fans everywhere.”

“When you read The Hollow Key, you’ll be hooked right from the start with the vivid descriptions and interesting characters. From Vienna and Kole to Piper and Leo to the many Souls that are each crucial to saving the world as they all know it, there are more characters scattered throughout this book than you would think. Even still, Parris Sheets does an amazing job of making each one come alive and helping you to feel like you’re right there, experiencing the hope and pain, and the battles and adventures right along with them. This book will take you into a completely new world, with fantastic creatures, both good and bad, and maybe more than a few in between.”

“Parris Sheets’ fantasy novel follows a young hero as he sets out on a challenging quest to mend a broken world. This novel is part of a much wider story arc but Sheets’s writing style makes it simple for anyone who is unfamiliar with the series to follow the story without becoming bogged down in the action. The plot of The Hollow Key reads like an adventure that must be finished in stages for an enjoyable experience.

“Although the characters’ motivations may appear similar at first, they are well-developed, and if a reader is willing to read between the lines, they can quickly piece together the true concerns of each character. Although Vienna appears to be more concerned with returning Kole to their domain, her worries about the security of the Kayetan that is traveling with her reveal certain unresolved issues with Felix. Also noteworthy is the intriguing alliance between Kole and Aterus, which suggests that despite their refusal to acknowledge it, they have similar objectives.

“With its sophisticated tone, The Hollow Key is a lovely piece of work that dispenses with the dated notion that all great stories must follow the same path.”

“Parris Sheets builds suspense with Kole and Caradin arriving where anything is possible. Facing a partial death every time Kole rescues one Soul is just one obstacle of the many he faces. The intense details of the fighting that occurred inside Kole’s mind made it easy to imagine. Piper’s intentions are suspicious as she doesn’t admit or deny it, and she may know more than she tells everyone. I understood why Kole lacks trust in Piper since she is the daughter of Arterus. The plot is unpredictable because the telepathic messages from the Souls are vague.

“Putting together the pieces of information like a puzzle kept me engaged in the mystery. The emotional pain of losing people who were important to Kole brought tears to my eyes. I felt the ending was bittersweet. The Hollow Key will appeal to readers who enjoy fantasy stories with characters who have to battle against a being who can infiltrate their minds.”
