Ariel is a former fencing champ who must learn a secret to unlock her true potential as she goes on a mission to free her mother who has been kidnapped by demons. The old, and cheeky guide Walnut decides to aid her, along with Nick the Warrior, whose presence, because of Ariel’s feelings for him, is often more hindrance than help.
I received a free review copy of Tahlia Newland’s Lethal Inheritance, which follows Ariel as she and her companions battle demons who are determined that she will fail in her quest. A fascinating blend of adventure, suspense and humor, this book is a great read for young and old alike. If you like your fantasy with a touch of modern realism woven in, Newland provides it in spades in this, the first book in her Diamond Peak series.
I give this book four stars.
