A quirky old guide teaches her how to locate and unleash her inner power, and while battling hallucinogenic mist, treacherous terrain, murderous earth spirits and self-doubt, she falls in love with Nick, a Warrior whose power is more than either of them can handle.

Lethal Inheritance was an action packed adventure fit for readers of any age! The book kept me turning pages to find out what happens.
It was unique. Ariel is woken from her sleep one night with the door being smashed in and her mother yelling run! Her mother gets taken by Demons. Ariel gets away but can't believe what she is seeing. She doesn't know what these things are but somehow the word Demon finds it's way to her subconscious.
She is unsure what to do and goes home to figure it out. Her she is attacked by yet another Demon and thinks she will die. At the last moment she is saved. When she wakes up the next morning, she is told that to get her mother back, she must go on a quest. The kicker is these Demons feed on fear and anger! How can you not feel fear or anger when dealing with scary beings that took your mother????
I liked the imagery. It was so easy to see what Ariel must have seen. I went thrugh the emotions with Ariel as well. Tahlia was wonderfully descriptive and I really liked that. I liked the characters. I liked the story. I liked it all! :D
I really had a good time reading this story and I look forward to reading more from this talented author. This is the first of Tahlia's books that I've read but it won't be the last.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion. Thank you Tahlia! :D I thought it was wonderful.
If you saw a big scary Demon would you be able to keep yourself from showing fear?
Now, who would like to win a copy of Lethal Inheritance for themselves?
I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please leave a comment!
