is the new owner of a large mansion in the middle of
Romania. The house of a man she blamed for her mother’s
death, and one she’d severed all ties with. Who knew she was
the closest thing to a living relative he had?
trapped in a crypt far below and has been for years. He and
his brother have been Roderick’s prisoners for too long to
count, and they are starving. They will do anything to feed,
even if it means attacking their savior.
Overall, I enjoyed Deadly Inheritance by
Jayelle Drewry. I enjoyed her writing style and voice. I
found Gabrielle’s reactions to her situation realistic and
expected in most cases. I had problems with some
inconsistencies, though. Things like if she had spent so
much time growing up in the house, how she could know so
little about the area or its history. Timing
inconsistencies, like referring to an incident that had
happened two nights before as having happened “last night”
and then issues with Ivan being prisoner for so long. Most
of those issues could have been resolved with better editing
in my opinion. I thought Ms. Drewry’s treatment of the
vampire legend and what it meant for future generations
unique, and am interested in the story of Ivan’s brother.
