Before I begin, I want to thank the author Jina for giving me a copy of this book for review.


Second in the Series

Heir of Doom is the second b book in the Roxanne Fosch trilogy. I reviewed the first book, Heir of Ashes, and I will say that Heir of Ashes was good, but Heir of Doom was much better.

It built on the world developed in the first book, and dived deeper into its depths.

Heir of Ashes let readers learn about the world of Roxanne Fosch, but gave us only the most basic glimpses. We learned how the world worked, how the magical elements were thought of by the mortal realm, and an idea of what fantastical creatures we were dealing with.

It was a good starting point, but we never really got to dive in deeper and understand the basics. Instead, Bazzar had us starting halfway up the ladder, and Heir of Doom gave us a look back to understand the basics.


Diving Deeper Into the World

Bazzar gives us a chance to explore the basics of Roxanne’s world. Readers learn how the fantastical creatures interact with each other and with the mortal realm.

I like that the second book gives us the basics of the world because it’s as if we were seeing it for the first time, like Roxanne was. She was imprisoned for her teenage and young adult life.

She never learned what the whole world was like, she only knew whatever she had experienced.

Now that she can learn the ins and outs of her supernatural heritage, it gives the readers a chance to learn it alongside her.


Twist Ending

About a third of the way through the book, it seemed pretty obvious what the ending was going to be. It had been set up subtly, but once the true story of the book was underway, it became clear what was going to happen.

I was right about what was going to happen at the end, but I didn’t go quite far enough. So much more happened than I was expecting. It was so surprising, I couldn’t put the book down.

It was thrilling and fast-paced. It was fun, surprising, heartbreaking and exciting. Bazzar ended the book better than I was expecting and hoped.

It’s also a great set up for the next book. The story seems hopeless and I have no idea where it can go from here.

I know what the characters will be trying to do in the next book, but I have no idea how they are going to get it done.

I can’t wait to find out in Heir of Fury.
