Kara Magari isn’t normal, even by Ourea’s standards—and in a world of shape-shifters and soul stealers, that’s saying something. To the royalty, she’s a loose cannon. To the masses, she’s a failure. But Kara’s arrival in Ourea started a war, and she’s going to end it.
An ancient isen named Stone takes an interest in Kara’s training, and it turns out he has more answers than he originally led her to believe. In an effort to unearth a secret that might end the bloodshed, Kara instead discovers an ugly truth about her family—and how much she has in common with an infamous mass-murderer.
Braeden Drakonin has slowly rebuilt his life after the betrayal that tore it apart. His father wants him dead, and frankly, his so-called allies wouldn’t mind that either. Private alliances are formed. Secrets are sold. Tension is driving the armies apart. A single battle will end this war, and it’s coming. Braeden may be a prince, but it will take more than that to survive. He must take the fight to his father’s door—and win.
While in Lichgates I got to meet the world and Kara mostly, Treason brought some new twists to the whole story. I got to see the bad side of power and all the different plots in the kingdoms so I couldn't wait for more. So when Boyce send me the ARC of Heritage I stopped everything just to read it. I was not disappointed.
Being back to Ourea felt like coming back home from a long trip. With all betrayals and reveals that happened things calmed a bit in this world but still power is something that many dream off and finding someone to trust can be pretty hard. With all that Kara has got a bigger role to play and a bigger responsibility to carry. Plus Braeden is not by her side all the time any more and she must fight and learn. She must find her strength and learn how to control everything she has.
Besides the whole fantasy concept that still fascinates me maybe even more with every book, the relationship between Kara and Braeden is something that made me love this story even more. He, for sure, is high on my list of fictional boyfriends and Kara who is fierce but at the same time real made them a perfect match - I couldn't but support them and cheer for them throughout the whole book.
Even though I have got my dose of Ourea my cravings are still enormous and I cannot wait to read the final installment of this story - Illusion. Only Boyce no more heart-attacks. I'm watching you!
Rating: 5 stars.
Until the next time,
