Review - Heritage by: S.M. Boyce

Kara Magari isn’t normal, even by Ourea’s standards—and in a world of shape-shifters and soul stealers, that’s saying something. To the royalty, she’s a loose cannon. To the masses, she’s a failure. But Kara’s arrival in Ourea started a war, and she’s going to end it.

An ancient isen named Stone takes an interest in Kara’s training, and it turns out he has more answers than he originally led her to believe. In an effort to unearth a secret that might end the bloodshed, Kara instead discovers an ugly truth about her family—and how much she has in common with an infamous mass-murderer.

Braeden Drakonin has slowly rebuilt his life after the betrayal that tore it apart. His father wants him dead, and frankly, his so-called allies wouldn’t mind that either. Private alliances are formed. Secrets are sold. Tension is driving the armies apart. A single battle will end this war, and it’s coming. Braeden may be a prince, but it will take more than that to survive. He must take the fight to his father’s door—and win.

Oh dang... that ending. Say backstabbing what?! This series just gets better with every book. I adore Ourea and the story always traps me from beginning to end.

As I said in my review of the previous book, I was growing to understand Gavin and in Heritage my heart grew a little more for him. I'm extremely happy to see him turning into the guy we know he can be. I also just absolutely adore General Gurien. Love his character and love him with Aurora, I hope they get their happily ever after.

Braeden, you are just too adorable for words. I literally want to wrap him up and keep him forever. Regardless of how tough and protective he is, he has such a heart of gold and I adore it. Kara on the other hand is doing the opposite of Braeden and getting stronger and tougher every time we see her and I can't help but love this growth. These two couldn't be more perfect for each other.

I definitely don't want this series to end!! Reading the last book will totally be so bittersweet for me! I'm hoping for all the happily ever afters I can get! Waiting for fall is going to be way too long of a wait!
