Publisher's Summary

You either use magic or it uses you.

Sam has regained her memory and with it, the Knowing. There is magic inside her, strong, powerful. and old as the Earth, and it is more than enough to heal the sick werewolves. If only she could figure out how to use it.

Alex Channing has finally done something selfless and walked away. For the first time ever, his reasons are not about his own interests. He knows full well Sam is the only one who can heal him. But Alex knows better than anyone: magic always comes with a price. And he refuses to let Sam get hurt because of him. He'd rather die than cause her pain, and he plans to do just that. The more rabid werewolves he can take with him, the better.

With Alex's days numbered and more and more feral werewolves being drawn to Sam, she must learn to wield what's inside her and claim her inheritance before it's too late.

This is book two in the Heart Lines Series by Heather Hildenbrand.

Inheritance

I really enjoyed this book, the story is engaging and very entertaining. My only issue is that I sometimes really want to smack Sam upside the head because she comes off as a whinny spoiled child. Otherwise I really enjoyed it

Destiny

In book 2, with her memories finally restored, Sam works to try to find answers on how to unlock the power within her. This storyline continues to grow with the characters, I really enjoy it! Alex continues to be his bruiting self, but we do get some more glimpses into his past, there is still more to unlock there, I can’t wait to continue this journey in book 3

Loved

I was not sure how to take the whole back and forth with Sam and Alex. In some ways I was hoping Alex would just leave well enough alone and never return. I love R.J.'s wit and personality and him and Sam together as a team just seemed like the best decision. They pulled from each other. R.J. put Sam at ease and got her to smile. And don't get me started on Evie. I just love her fire.

What a twist!!!

I was totally shocked by the twist towards the conclusion. I knew it was too good to be true, but I was hoping Sam was just being extra cautious and simply jealous. Unfortunately, Sam’s instincts were spot on and things went south so fast I was dumbfounded. Sam and Alex have gone through so much I did not see that curve ball thrown in the last minute. I think they let their guards down and the enemy seems to be one step ahead of them. I still can’t believe what a horrible turn things have taken.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

The story sucked me in right away and kept me hooked from beginning to conclusion. I’m glad Samantha has her memories back, but having to deal with Alex taking off and werewolves gunning for her, she has her hands full. There seems to be a lot more to her magic than what meets the eye.

I’m totally wrapped up into the story and I can’t wait to see if my suspicions are correct. I have a feeling the enemy is closer than we expect.

A wonderful continuation

Heather is a wonderful storyteller and has done it again in this book. Kelly Pruner is a significantly better narrator, thank goodness. Overall I really enjoyed this audiobook far more than the first.

Second instalment of the Heart Lines series

“Magic, especially the old, earth magic, always comes with a price.” - Alex

Sam has regained her memory but still has no idea how to tap into her powers to heal others. Edie has recruited Sam to work for CHAS as a consultant with access to resources and a lab. She and RJ team up to investigate the mysterious infection that is causing werewolves to turn feral and violent.

While on a winter break in Guam with her Aunt Kiwi, Sam learns of a prophecy that foretells the return of the god of the ocean and goddess of the moon and the fierce battle for power that will break out between them. This prophecy has already been set in motion with the feral werewolves;

“According to the legend, if the ocean god couldn’t find and kill his son, he would resort to stealing his humanity. His second soul. Thus, the animal would be wild. With nothing left of their son’s humanity, the moon goddess would consider the deal broken, and she would bring the wrath of the darkness upon all Hunters.” - Kiwi

Most shocking of all is the revelation that Sam isn’t simply one of the original women that the goddess gave her magic to but ‘the one who gave her magic away in the first place.’

When RJ is attacked by a feral werewolf, Sam is unable to tap into her power to heal and is forced to kill it. This results in her seeking out the island spirit Taotaomona, for answers. Sam learns that magic comes with a price but that she must ‘use it or it uses you.’ For every creature Sam heals, the magic will give her a piece of their pain and leave a mark in the form of a scar. Unfortunately despite developing The Knowing from her meeting with Taotaomona, Sam is no closer to tapping into her ability to heal.

When Alex learns of RJ’s werewolf attack, he returns to Half Moon. He is appalled by the newly developed scars on Sam and despite his ailing health, refuses to allow her to heal him. Sam is further frustrated when her attempts to heal Mason result in him going into a coma. At the end of her tether, she seeks out Sushna, an ancient and deadly magic wielder. Through her, Sam finally learns the answers to the questions she’s been looking for.

Following another werewolf attack, Alex is bitten and on the brink of death. Unfortunately the solution to healing him may cost both Sam and he, more than they are willing to give...

Inheritance is the second book of the Heart Line series and is once more told from Alex and Sam’s point of view. I felt that the author expanded on her world building considerably in this instalment. We see Sam learn more about who and what she is. We also learn more about Alex’s background, the fact that his mother was a healer too.

The legend behind the creation of hunters and werewolves was intriguing. The idea that a god of the ocean and a moon goddess fell in love and briefly dwelt on earth. That the god became jealous of the attention the goddess bestowed on their child and tried to kill him. To protect him, the goddess gave the child the ability to shift into a wolf and man, which gave him two souls. The god became enraged and created Hunters to seek out and kill the wolf child. To maintain the balance, the goddess made werewolf venom, poisonous to the Hunters. Having grown old and weak due to her time on Earth, she passed her magic to heal wolves to ‘chosen ones’. Animosity between Hunters and Werewolves has existed ever since.

There were a few teasers from the Dirty Blood series, especially when references were made to Tara’s scientifically engineered blood, where I felt at disadvantage once more for not reading the prequel series. It’s simply explained as its ‘her story to tell.’ As a result, I do feel that I would have benefited from reading the Dirty Blood series first.

Inheritance is definitely a stronger instalment than the first book which ends on a huge cliffhanger. Luckily I’m lined up to read Esperance next.

I received an advanced free audible copy of Inheritance that was narrated by Kelly Pruner who made it easy to differentiate between the different characters.
