The latest review of Lethal Inheritance by Roxane Kade is the kind that makes an author’s heart sing. Clearly this reviewer thinks that Lethal Inheritance is a one of the top YA fantasy reads, and she’s right. It is. It’s just relatively undiscovered as yet.
A thrilling, epic adventure – this book had so much to offer, with plenty of action and exciting twists and turns. I was thoroughly engrossed from the very first page, as Ariel set off on a life-changing journey that would see her grow from strength to strength, facing many obstacles and choices.
I enjoyed getting to know the characters and exploring the wonderful fantasy world that Newland created. In fact, I felt like I had just fallen into a new kind of wonderland and it was fascinating.
This story was a great read and will immerse younger readers in a world of magic and mysticism. But, take away all the fantasy – demons, warriors and magical elements – and you have a powerful message that everyone would do well to remember – allow your fears, cravings and anger to fester, and your inner goodness will suffer; face them, deal with them and accept them, and all the negatives will lessen until they cannot harm you any longer.
I am excited to continue on this journey of love, friendship, acceptance and self-belief.
