Inherit the Stars by Tessa Elwood
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The house of Fane has three daughters. The oldest is in a coma and may be unplugged to advance the second daughter to heir status. The second daughter is pledged to marry Eagle from the house of Westlet in order to unite the houses and avoid the collapse of their people. Asa is the youngest daughter and she has other plans. She poses as her older sister during the wedding ceremony and now the families must decide if the blood bond should be honored or if this traitorous act was willfully planned by the ruling adults. Asa and Eagle have had a tumultuous start, but will they be given the opportunity to discover if a real bond is possible? Will the needs of the people be too large to overcome in the time they have available?
Inherit the Stars is the first book in the debut series by the same title. Elwood has created a world full of interesting characters and personal drama that will delight readers who don’t mind a little sci-fi with their romance. Although this does take place in a world that has interplanetary systems that includes space travel and other scientific discoveries not of this world, the science fiction aspect is light and can easily be digested by readers who don’t normally pick up that genre. This book is not very long and readers will quickly travel from subplot to subplot until the final revelation that will leave them hanging. All will be looking for the next book to discover what these planets will do to continue their survival.
