    1 thought on “Heir to Power

    1. The first book in a trilogy or series is notorious for introducing us to the characters and general story, but not usually tackling anything rich and meaty In this case however, we get many an introduction but also quite a bit of forward motion in the storyline We glimpse the Healing family as well as the whole of the Survinee village in both childhood and present times We come to understand ,at least to the level that they understand, the teachings of their people and the value of the crystal b [...]

    2. This book took me a long time to read and I really think it can be shortened by at least 200 pages There is a very technical feel to it and I wasn t surprised when reading that the author has written technical manuals Sometimes I felt like I was reading a manual instead of a piece of fiction.I think that Poague s overall idea is a great one The tribe of Survinee people whom which the book were based upon were very intriguing, and seeing the world through their eyes felt almost like being an adve [...]

    3. First of I want to say I love the cover of the book and in a bookstore it would definitely draw me to the book The book is about a place called Survin and centres on the Healing Family Isontra is the head healer and Miral and then after her both jobs should pass to her daughter Jettena, but in a break with tradition the job of Miral will pass to Kairma who is Jettena s eldest daughter The community head is always a woman, and her mate is chosen by a contest of sorts The one that becomes her mate [...]

    4. Received for review as part of Tristi Pinkston s book blog tours This book was one of those books that teetered between three and four stars Something would happen to bump it down to a three and then immediately after something happens to bump it up to four stars.This is a fairly long novel coming in at 564 pages, but I really did enjoy it The novel started out slow for me, but it quickly started building and catching my interest I really loved the character within this novel As expected, Kairma [...]

    5. I liked that in Heir to Power, Kairma starts off feeling maybe she really isn t able to live up to everything everyone always expects of her, that becoming the hier to power is of a burden than anything else She resents it in many ways But I loved the character Arc as she grows throughout the story and discovers inside of her strenghts and abilities she never new she possessed in addition to finding some mysterious things that cause her to question what is going when the White Ones begin to sho [...]

    6. Some Spoilers, but nothing major.It was great It starts out interesting from the very beginning The story is about a sixteen year old girl who is the next in line to lead a small colony called the Survinees She will be the one to hold an ancient religious artifact called the Healing Crystal She is also destined to marry a handsome guy who has been training to be the support he needs to be to her leadership But She starts to have feelings for someone else.This book has so much going on in it that [...]

    7. The dialog is outstanding, the characters memorable and the story fresh I could not put this book down until I had read the whole of it While I believe this book will attract young adults, anyone who remembers their years between childhood and becoming an adult will love it Beyond this, the action in this book, the fighting, running, pursuing, are all full of the tension that makes a good read The characters motivations are clear, understandable, and reasonable The plays between the sisters and [...]

    8. This review also on The Library CanaryI was surprised at how much I liked this Not because I didn t think it sounded good, but there weren t any of the usual aspects that make me fall in love with a book, like high action and steamy romance Yet somehow, I can t stop thinking about it The story completely captivated me I was trying to figure out where in the world we were and if we were in the past or the future It was a constant guessing game that kept me turning the pages, craving information. [...]

    9. I have to say I really enjoyed reading Heir to Power by Michele Poague The beginning seemed a little slow with trying to figure out who these very tall people were Gentle giants, one might call them, the Survinees of the colony of Survin and in what time frame they were living, and with sorting through the various characters with names I had a hard time pronouncing in my head, like Isontra, Jettina, Kairma, and Naturi Then I found a QA on the author s website that provided the phonetic spellings [...]

    10. Heir to Power is an amazing book with a fascinating and complex story It might seem weird, but it almost feels like a dystopian Cowboys vs Aliens And I loved it I am usually a little leery of reading epic fantasies A lot of times authors spend so much time describing the elements of the fantasy world that they forget the characters Luckily, Heir to Power does not have this problem Even though the fantasy elements of this book are intriguing and well depicted, the main focus of it is the developm [...]

    11. I was given a copy free in exchange for an honest review Heir to power is the first book of a trilogy The story is about a sixteen year old girl who is next in line to lead the Survinees a small colony of people which has stayed hidden for centuries She is destined to marry a guy who has been training to be the man he needs to be to support her leadership She is the one who will hold the healing crystal an ancient religious artifact Kairma is next in lead to lead but she is nervous about it Her [...]

    12. This first book in the series took about 12 chapters to get moving for me Once I got to know the characters, I was sucked right in There was a lot of world building in this 1st book, but it sets everything up perfectly for book 2
