Lethal Inheritance - Review

My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

If last night was real, Ariel should be dead. She’s not, but her mother has disappeared, there are bruises on her neck and the hideous beast in the photo looks frighteningly familiar.

You can’t send police into a tunnel that doesn’t exist after a villain they can’t see, so when shadow demons kidnap her mother, Ariel has to mount the rescue mission herself.
Hot on the trail, she enters a hidden layer of reality only to find that the demons are hunting her, and they feed on fear. Ariel must defeat them before they kill her and enslave her mother.
But how do you kill terrifying demons when your fear makes them stronger?

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.

Ariel’s journey challenges her perception, tests her awareness and takes her deep into her heart and mind to confront, and ultimately transcend, her fear and anger.

It's such a wonderful journey, in so many ways. It's not only an adventure filled getaway for readers but a journey for the main character Ariel who goes out and learns about things that she never thought existed. Both in the world and in herself.

It's so easy to get caught up in the story and to forget where you are and, in my case, what you're suppose to be doing.
The characters were instant likes, I didn't even have to think about it, it was like I was already acquainted them and just revisiting.

It left me wanting more. A must read for any fantasy fan.
