Review: A Dark Inheritance
A Dark Inheritance by Chris d'Lacey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Michael Malone cannot control his urge to save a dog from jumping off a cliff, but after the fact he cannot explain why or how he was able to catch the dog. Especially since none of the police officers were able to get near it. He is told the dog belongs to one of his sick classmates, but when he inquires about the dog he begins to discover the truth. There seems to be a connection between this sick girl and an accident where another girl had been killed. If that is not enough, Michael is approached by secretive people and told that his father was helping their organization and it appears that he also has the skills needed to assist Unicorne. Who can Michael trust? What must he do to find out the answers to his questions?
A Dark Inheritance is the first book in a new series by Chris d’Lacey. I am sure that many readers of d’Lacey’s The Last Dragon Chronicles will pick this up because of the author, but be prepared for them not being anything alike. Although I knew it was a completely different series, the characters and their plight just didn’t grab my attention. The story progressed nicely and I enjoyed the experience, but at no time was I swept away with the tale. It is a good read, but should not be moved to the top of your TBR pile too quickly.
