Having read Goddess Born, the first book in Kari Edgren’s trilogy and enjoying it immensely, I knew I had to read A Grave Inheritance and I was not disappointed! As with any sequel a review is a bit difficult without maybe giving away a spoiler from the first book so be forewarned before you go on if you do intend to read the series. In A Grave Inheritance we continue Selah’s journey – this time to meet her love Henry in London. A Grave Inheritance takes us back in time combining elements of magic and mythology giving the reader a truly captivating tale.
In A Grave Inheritance Selah comes to London to be with Henry but unfortunately it seems he is not hers alone. She has to contend with his betrothed and even another goddess born. Yet Henry assures her he only has eyes for her and of course Selah will do anything for Henry and their lives together. Yet when Henry begins to question Selah’s use of her gifts she has to wonder if they do indeed have a future together. He must accept her for who she is – a descendant of a goddess. It doesn’t help that Henry’s father is not approving of their betrothal either especially since Henry is already promised to the king’s daughter. And then there is Julian who is another descendant of Brigid’s. He is showing a great deal of interest in Selah but can he be trusted. As time goes on things really begin to heat up and Selah starts learning more and more about her family and her roots. What she learns shakes the foundations of who she always thought she was and as a malevolent force takes control of the very things that mean the most to Selah she knows that she will have to fight it with everything she can.
Oh I know this review is a bit vague but I don’t want to talk about the story much except to say it was really good. A Grave Inheritance is faster paced than the first one and really brings alive the sights and sounds of England. I loved that we got to see more of the goddess born traits that Selah possesses really shine in this book. It was also really interesting to see her family dynamics change drastically and I hope we learn more about that in the next book. I can’t help but mention the book cover as well. I think it is absolutely gorgeous. Last but not least this installment ended on a whoosie of a cliffhanger which I didn’t expect at all but it certainly makes me even more anxious to delve into the next book!
Recommended for those who enjoy historical fiction with elements of the paranormal. I really enjoyed it and can’t wait for the final book!
The story picks up a few weeks after the first book left off, with Henry Fitzalan, the man Selah Kilbrid fell in love with believing he was an indentured servant, but who turned out to be heir to a dukedom and promised to a princess, back in England, and Selah, his affianced, preparing to follow him to meet his father and the king and secure her place as his bride. But the day before she is set to leave, an encounter with a strange man and an even stranger beast set her on edge. After a treacherous sea voyage, she arrives in London with her nerves and thoughts in a jumble, anxious to reunite with Henry but worried that his feelings for her and his determination to marry her may not have survived their separation. She quickly learns just how much the deck is stacked against them, with Henry standoffish in public, and a king, a princess, and most of English society condemning her as a gold-digging upstart. The one bright spot is the discovery of a fellow Goddess Born, a handsome young man keen to help Selah learn more about her heritage, to help her replenish her powers while in England, and to let him into her heart if he has his way.
As if fighting for her one true love and attempting to prove her worth to English society weren't enough, Selah has an encounter with a street waif that leaves her injured, and when she later sees that same waif nearly kill a little boy with just a touch, Selah realizes there are more powerful forces on the loose in London than just the Goddess Born. As more people fall ill and die, and as the little waif seems to be taunting Selah, circling ever closer with more creatures of the underworld, Selah is drawn deeper into the community of Goddess Born in England. But even with her newfound friends, defeating an ancient foe with its sights set on Selah may prove to be more than she can handle, especially when those she loves most are placed directly in the path of a monster.
While I thoroughly enjoyed this stage of Selah's story, I did miss the Colonial America setting, which is what drew me to this series in the first place. But this London installment makes up for that by constantly keeping my attention on the plot and the subtext and the revelations about Selah's heritage, and on a truly creepy villain in the form of a little girl. There are more than a few pulse-pounding moments when Selah's insecurity and doubt about Henry and her place in his world had me on pins and needles, but, as in the first book, Henry continues to be pretty swoon-worthy and proves himself a worthy match for a Goddess Born. And Selah and Henry are HAWT together, even while remaining fully clothed. Nonstop action and emotional drama had me burning through the pages right up to the cliffhanger ending that sets the stage for an epic confrontation in the final book. If you're looking for something a bit different in historical romance and can handle a little magic and mythology mixed in with your history, give the Goddess Born series a shot. I am anxiously awaiting the conclusion to this exciting, romantic series!
At the beginning, Henry is already in England and Selah is preparing to join him. She has an odd experience before she leaves which shakes her up a little bit. When she gets to England, she and Henry have to act more formal with each other since lots of eyes are on them due to a prior commitment Henry made before he met her. Henry is able to appease her but she does doubt him quite a bit throughout this book.
I love Henry and Selah! There were obstacles and complications for them to overcome and they each had someone else vying for their affection. They also had plenty of people working to keep them apart. At one point, Selah isn't sure if she completely trusts Henry and has to decide what her feelings for him are.
There are also some great side characters--James Roth, Henry's personal secretary who Selah doesn't get along with, Selah's best friend, Nora, and her mother Lucy, who are both Quakers that travel to England with Selah, and Lady Catherine Dinley, the young widow who welcomes Selah and her friends into her home and helps her through some dicey situations.
A lot is revealed in this book about Selah and she finds others who are like her. I love Ms. Edgren's writing--I felt like I was there in England with them and had to keep reading to find out what would happen next. There were some great twists and the cliffhanger ending left me wanting more. I'm definitely looking forward to book 3!!
