This book delivered all the intrigue and romance I’ve come to expect and enjoy from the Uncharted series. I was happy to return to The Land and its friendly inhabitants and follow Bethany through her growing pains to finding her true love. Uncharted Inheritance is mysterious and magnetic. Readers will inevitably be drawn to its unique world.
There were some fresh twists I had not expected. The outsider coming to the hidden land added a lot to the story. Not to mention it created quite the triangle as Bethany finds herself torn between her faithful friend and the intriguing stranger. I couldn’t quite guess the ending.
I will say I found myself frustrated with a few characters and their actions at certain moments. Do you ever get exasperated with fictional people? Please tell me I’m not the only one! 😉 Some parts were a bit predictable to me and the ending felt a little drawn out, but otherwise it was enjoyable from start to finish.
I do want to mention that it’s not really a “stand-alone” book. You’ll appreciate the story a whole lot more if you’ve read the first two in the series. They build well upon each other. I’m very curious what’s still to come. There were definite hints of something more. I’m a fan of this series. It’s fun. It’s fresh. And it’s memorable.
Thank you to the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
