Please be aware that Heritage is book THREE of S.M. Boyce’s Grimorie Saga. Book 1 and 2 are out already and book 3 comes out in early November. Here are my reviews of the first two if you’d like to check them out and put this review in better context.
Holy sh….yea, this book was amazing, just like the two previous books from S.M. Boyce in this saga. After devouring Lichgates early in 2012, I soon fell in love with the fantasy world of Ourea. Then came book two of this saga, Treason. That book surpassed my expectations greatly. Now that I was able to get an ARC of Heritage, I can confidently say that fans of Boyce’s writing will probably fall in love with this series of books even more.
I don’t take to series well. It’s mainly because I like when a story can wrap up at the end of one novel, at most two. Sometimes there just isn’t enough in a storyline to need more than one or two books or my attention goes to something more interesting and I don’t come back to a series. Heritage is proof, to me, that these books are worth sticking around for.
Like the previous installments, this one follows a young woman named Kara, who has been thrown into the world of Ourea. It’s even more perilous and complex than when she first entered through a lichgate (magical portal) months before. Boyce does a great job of getting her readers immersed in the world she’s created, early on and it only continues to expand. Her characters become more and more complex as well. There’s nothing simple about the agendas of the Bloods (royalty). With each turn of the page, a new motivation reveals itself; a new plan is made; twists and turns are abundant.
I can’t say too much about the actual events in this book. It’d be too difficult to avoid spoiling it for those who haven’t read the previous books. As a fan of this series, I feel that it’s moving in a great direction. Book four can’t come soon enough. So much happened in Heritage to make it near impossible to tell how this war to unite (or destroy) Ourea will end. With Boyce’s writing getting better and better with each book, I only know it’s going to be epic.
Heritage is the third of four books in The Grimoire Saga. The book is scheduled to be released in early November of this year, but in the mean time, here are links to book 1 and book 2 to get you read.
