REVIEW - Inheritance (Heart Lines #2) - Heather Hildenbrand



TITLE - Inheritance (Heart Lines #2)



AUTHOR - Heather Hildenbrand






BLURB:

You either use magic or it uses you… 

Sam has regained her memory—and with it, the Knowing. There is magic inside her; strong, powerful and old as the Earth, it is more than enough to heal the sick werewolves. If only she could figure out how to use it. 

Alex Channing has finally done something selfless and walked away. For the first time ever, his reasons are not about his own interests. He knows full well Sam is the only one who can heal him. But Alex knows better than anyone: magic always comes with a price. And he refuses to let Sam get hurt because of him. He’d rather die than cause her pain—and he plans to do just that. The more rabid werewolves he can take with him, the better. 

With Alex’s days numbered and more and more feral werewolves being drawn to Sam, she must learn to wield what’s inside her and claim her inheritance. Before it’s too late. 


REVIEW:

Heather Hildenbrand is a genius! Inheritance is the second book in her Heartline series and let me tell you, it is amazing! It is full of action and mystery and ties into her other series, Dirty Blood. While this series can be read without reading her other series, I suggest you read book one or you will be lost. I loved this book and cannot wait for the next book in the series.

The plot of this book follows right along with book one. This book starts a little bit after the end of book one. This book hits a lot of milestones needed to effectively progress the story. I love the plot of this book. There is mystery and romance tied up nicely with self-discovery. Honestly, I love all of these themes and to have them put together really makes a perfect book for me personally.

The characters in this book are just as wonderful as they were. We also get to meet some new characters as well. Sam has developed a lot since the first book. She is an amazing and strong character. Alex is just as stubborn as always, but he has also developed quite a bit. Let me tell you though, Alex is one heck of a book boyfriend. I love how strong he is, even if he makes decisions without input from others sometimes. I also loved the minor characters in this book. I really hope they get some more story time for themselves.

While the first book was steamy, this book kicked the heat up 100 degrees! Man oh man does this book have a lot of heat. I love the tension between characters. When a writer is good at what they do, they make the chemistry feel real for readers. I could feel the tension and chemistry flying off the pages at me.
The author has a wonderful writing style. I love the way she writes the characters specifically. Sam is a wonderful and feisty character, but is still compassionate and fierce. I loved how the author wrote her character. I also loved the pace of the book. It is a steady pace, allowing time for the readers to slowly uncover new information and have time to process and digest.

Overall, this is a wonderful book. If you are looking for a book with a lot of action and mystery this is the book for you. If you like books with some romance, this book is also for you. Finally, if you like books about self-discovery, then this whole series is for you. This is a wonderful book with a lot of different paranormal aspects perfect for any paranormal romance lover.
