Lethal Inheritance by Tahlia Newland - Review!

Happy Wednesday!

I am participating at Lethal Inheritance by Tahlia Newland Blog Tour. Welcome to my stop, which includes a review and some information about the book and the author. Enjoy!

Let's start with review!

Title: Lethal Inheritance (Book one of the Diamond Peak Series)
Publisher: Catapult Press
Genre: Young adult contemporary fantasy
Publishing date: 10th of October 2012
Pages: 300 pages in e-book version
Source: From the author in exchange for honest review
If last night was real, Ariel should be dead. She’s not, but her mother has disappeared, there are bruises on her neck and the hideous beast in the photo looks frighteningly familiar.
You can’t send police into a tunnel that doesn’t exist after a villain they can’t see, so when shadow demons kidnap her mother, Ariel has to mount the rescue mission herself. Hot on the trail, she enters a hidden layer of reality only to find that the demons are hunting her, and they feed on fear. Ariel must defeat them before they kill her and enslave her mother. But how do you kill terrifying demons when your fear makes them stronger?
A quirky old guide teaches her how to locate and unleash her inner power, and while battling hallucinogenic mist, treacherous terrain, murderous earth spirits and self-doubt, she falls in love with Nick, a Warrior whose power is more than either of them can handle.
Ariel’s journey challenges her perception, tests her awareness and takes her deep into her heart and mind to confront, and ultimately transcend, her fear and anger.
My review:
Lethal Inheritance by Tahlia Newland was a surprise for me. It was first book written by Tahlia which I have read and I found it very engaging. It's a action packed page-turner with an engaging story and likable characters.
It all started with a scream and suddenly Ariel finds herself in a world she did not know existed, but what is basically situated in her back yard. Her mother has disappeared and Ariel is quite lost. The only weapon she has is a mysterious dagger which she has no idea how to use. She finds herself in a world of demons.
Ariel needs to find a guide in order to reach her mother who has been kidnapped by the demons. On her path she finds friends and foes and she grows both as a personality and as a young woman.
It was a wonderful story which kept me on edge and which had unique settings. I think the author also did a wonderful job with the characters and the dialogue between them. i can't wait what the author has to offer in the upcoming books in the series.
Great read for all ages!
5 Flowers!

5 stars.
