Synopsis: On a rescue mission in a mysterious hidden realm, ex-fencing champion, Ariel, battles treacherous terrain, vicious elementals and wraith-like demons who want her dead - after they've fed on her fear. To defeat the demons and free her mother, she must learn a secret esoteric wisdom to awaken the dormant but potentially explosive power of her mind.

Walnut, a quirky old wise man, guides her across stone-strewn plains and wind-swept swamps, past deep ravines and quaint villages, and through a modern city enclosed in a transparent dome. Nick, the powerful Warrior who travels with them, proves a dangerous attraction. His feral energy hits her like a sledgehammer; sometimes it's bliss, but often it's pain. 

Can Ariel defeat the sadistic demon lord and his army before he kills her and enslaves her mother? 

The stakes are high, death a real possibility. Fail now, and she fails humanity.

My Review:
I received Lethal Inheritance by Tahlia Newland from the author for review, and this is my honest review.

After finishing Lethal Inheritance I can honestly say that I haven’t read anything like it before, and I mean that in a very good way. In this story we meet a young girl named Ariel who witness’ her mother, Nadima being kidnapped my strange creatures in the middle of the night. Ariel doesn’t know anything other than that she needs to save her mother. So that is her mission in this book.

I really liked Ariel’s character because most of the time she had absolutely no clue what was going on or what she was going to have to do to get her mother back but she was very brave and was willing to do whatever it took. I definitely commend her on her bravery it was one of the things that made this book worth reading.

This story has no doubt A LOT of action which kept me quite entertained but I was very impressed with Newlands job of incorporating other things into the story along side the action like humor here and there, and romance too. We can’t forget about that romance! We met some other very likeable characters like Walnut (I love that name by the way, very creative!) whom is Ariel’s guide for the most part. He was a sweet old man (I think he was supposed to be an older man) and he was always there to guide Ariel when she needed it. Ariel’s other guide was Nick, now I liked Nick a lot especially him and Ariel’s relationship because it wasn’t this love at first sight thing they actually kind of hated each other in the beginning but ended up growing on each other which was cute.

Now there were a few things that annoyed me about this book as well that brought my rating down a little. Like I understand that finding her mother was crazy important but the book seemed to just drag on and on and i’m not sure if it was because I wasn’t in the mood to read it or what but it took me forever to finish it seemed like because I just couldn’t take the plot for too long of a time. The next thing is going to sound weird because I wanted it to wrap up BUT when it did come time for Ariel to save her mother it just seemed like that whole part of the book was way rushed. Like the whole search for her mother could have been shortened considerably and the fight at the end could have probably been more action packed I feel like but that could just be me.

Anyways there are a few more books in this series and even though I won't be jumping into them like a madwoman I do plan to read them sometime in the future.
