Book blogger Laura B (and her mom) recently read Heir to Power. Here is a snippet of their [combined] review:
This book was huge, but I loved every page.
When it first arrived in the mail, my mom was visiting and picked it up. She scanned the back, asked me about it and when I told her I got it to read and do a blog review of it she nodded her head and put it down. Then she picked it back up and started reading. I haven’t seen my mom read a book before. Sure magazines, kids books to me when I was little, medical journals. (She’s a nurse recently retired) and maybe it’s because I haven’t really been home to see her reading, but she started one night at my house, stayed up late reading it and was about 1/4 the way through by the time she had to head back home. She asked if she could borrow the book and bring it back since she’d be coming back for Thanksgiving.
I was pretty busy with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) so I told her, “Sure. Take it home, but make sure you bring it back because I have to read it for the blog book tour.” SHE LOVED IT! I kept asking her about it and she said things like it’s interesting, it’s good, it’s fascinating. She never told me what happened, letting me discover it for myself but the fact she read it and didn’t put it down after she began told me it was something good. She’s even checked out the second book in the series on Amazon.
Kairma is a great Main Character and I really liked how Michele Poague developed her. The interactions between characters are great. The story line is creative and complicated in just the right amounts. I really can’t wait to read the next one in this series.
