Review: A grave inheritance by Kari Edgren

untitled (4)A Grave inheritance by Kari Edgren

Book two of Goddess Born
Selah Kilbrid may descend from the goddess Brigid, but her heart beats–and breaks–the same as any human. Yet enduring the scorn of London’s most noble lords and ladies is a small price to pay for a chance at true happiness. Selah would endure much more for love, and her betrothed, Lord Henry Fitzalan, is prepared to challenge anyone foolish enough to stand in their way, even another goddess born.
But when a captivating young gentleman draws Selah into a world shadowed by secrets, she is forced to confront her darkest fears. What if some differences are too great to overcome and a future with Henry is doomed from the start?
With these doubts threatening her impending marriage, a violent attack on an innocent child pushes Selah to the very edge of her power. She must find a way to cross into the Otherworld and regain her strength, or forfeit the streets of London to death and disease.”

A stunning follow up to “Goddess Born”, “Grave inheritance” is historical fantasy at its best. This time the book is set in 18th century England and in London, and the historical details are so accurate, I felt like I was there.  On a grander scale, Kari Edgren’s fascinating world expands with more characters, more intrigue and more surprizes. Selah and Henry are back on form for a second outing that just exceeded my expectations and left me wanting more. The Goddess born series is quickly becoming my favourite book series and I can not wait for the next instalment.

 

Kari Edgren’s beautiful writing is emotive and completely immersive, she has a style that effected me deeply and I real felt connected to her characters.

There is so much packed into “A Grave inheritance”  that I found it impossible to put down, I only wished that these books were released in a paperback version so I could kept them on my shelf, with my other favourites. This is one series I will be re-reading for many years to come.
