Locke and Key is a beast of its own type, not holding back on the details right from the start but still revealing and shocking with every word and action. It does not resort to the usual resets, does not do it like any superhero comic would, but instead pans out like a horror novel of a high caliber. The beginning of this arc tells more to that degree. The recent chain of events, told in the recent arcs, also reviewed before, was particularly rough for the Locke family, begun with the death of Rendell Locke and escalating through what has been developing for a long time: the strengthening of Dodge's hold on the family. With Crown of Shadows, the mystery is deepening to a crucial point.

We have not seen Nina much up to now, but when the first scene comes by we will in a big way. It is no surprise she stumbles into Tyler's room and pouring out all her sorrows on drink and her son who is asleep. It is trademark Joe Hill plot progression and he even adds his contemporary touch into minor details like Nina starting off with a direct swig from her wine bottle and then pouring out some more into the glass she is holding on the other hand. It is small little touches like this that brings us back to the brilliance of the first arc and one would imagine how wondrous and a joy the scripts must have read to artist and fellow creator, Gabriel Rodriguez.

Other plot points continue where they were left off as well, some more important than the others, but all just as entertaining. We see what happens to Sam Lesser, betrayed after the first arc, but now sees the possibly of revenge over Dodge now as a spirit separated from his body.

This is the 3rd graphic novel in the Locke and Key series. The 4th, Locke & Key Volume 4: Keys to the Kingdom HC, comes out July of 2011. This was an excellent installment in this series; this story just keeps getting more and more interesting. I think this was my favorite one yet, which is really saying something since I have loved them all. I should also mention that the hardback version of this is just beautiful; even has a lovely ribbon to keep track of your place in the book.

As the Locke children's mother is incapacitated by grief and forced to deal with yet another loss, the Locke children are left to fend for themselves in a house where things are becoming increasingly strange. Dodge continues his search for the Black Door Key and summons an army of shadows to torment the Locke children. The Locke children are forced to fight for their lives against the shadows within.

This is just such an interesting, if profoundly creepy, series. Every installment introduces new mystery to the storyline and every installment introduces strange new keys that do fantastical things. I am so excited to see what each new key does, and so interested in how this battle between the living and the dead, between Dodge and the Locke children will play out.

This is definitely a novel for adults, some of the things in here are disturbing. The mother of the Locke children continues a rapidly increasing descent into misery and spends a lot of time drinking and being generally useless and tragic. The Locke kids struggle along as well as they can.

Format: Hardcover
A family lost, a house gained, secrets revealed from a father's childhhood - all of these things and more have worked their way into the previous chapters of Locke and Key. In the last book we saw the way specific doors could allow one to float free of their body and accomplish so many other oddities like playing around in one's head. This makes the house desirable - especially to something that resides in the wellhouse.
In Crown of Shadows these keys and a new key are being sought after, and the key that is found here is one that does quite a bit. In the hands of the wrong user, it could allow them to do unspeakable thing. In the hands of the right person, it might allow them to protect thei house and home. There are many a slip between a cup and a lip - or a key and door to be accurate. Along with this, there is also the story that talks about the wellhouse's resident and the way it has controlled so many people. It also reveals its link to the killer that mowed through part of the family we've been following before he was stopped, and how he is stil there. He knows things, too, things that could benifit anyone seeking keys, but talking - he doesn't seem to want any of that. So, its on with the search and with the accidents and, in some ways, revenge.
There is so much that could be said but i do not want spoilers in this.

Hardbound = Sexy in the world of Locke and Key. And the Crown of shadows is an interesting addition to what has been happening in the house that has keys hidden here and there and everywhere. Considering what has happened thusfar that isa powerful thing to say, but the truth behind the matter is that this book is a great book.
