2.0 out of 5 starsI'm being generous with two stars

I'm amazed there aren't a lot of one or two star reviews. It's a simple book, with lots and lots of tears, eyes filled with tears and tears running down cheeks. It's DRAWN out, slow and incredibly repetitive. One of the characters is dying from the beginning and they go through the same thing with her over and over again...repetitive! It's a silly book and I advise you to save your time and money. I didn't care about any of the characters and could just barely finish it. The characters did the same thing over and over and over again until I was was kind hoping they would all get killed in one of the battles and get it over with. Really boring. Will not be reading more of this. Ever.
5.0 out of 5 starsYou will fall in love with the characters and be pulled into the adventures.

Don’t start this book unless you have a lot of free time. The storyline just keeps moving, which didn’t allow for easy breaks to put it down. You will start reading, fall in love with the characters, be pulled into the adventures, and then forget to do the things that are on your to do list for those days. I speak from experience.
The scenes had such a local flair for those of us who have spent time in Virginia. I can’t wait to read the second book in the series to find out where the characters lives take them and to get to know some of the ones who were talked about, but didn’t meet yet. (Will we meet Elizabeth and hear her story?). I highly recommend this fast-moving adventure story with exquisite details and lovable characters.

I heard about this book from the author’s wife (thanks Mary!) - and I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it….but let me tell you, I could not put it down. I could not wait to read the next chapter all throughout the book! The characters’ development was awesome - the descriptions of the different worlds made me feel like I was there, seeing it for myself. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series! Excellent job, David!!
5.0 out of 5 starsFantasy Fiction for the "Friends" Crowd

I self identify more as a Monica than a Bella, so I was surprised to be drawn into this book about vampires and elves so completely. The story is fantastic and yet relatable, weaving pixies, brownies, and dragons with the familiar world of Alexa, craft breweries, and chocolate milk, and I found myself relating to the characters in a real way. The strong female (and remarkedly human) characters along with the recently minted vampire lend a recognizable and thoughtful perspective for readers new to the genre with no need for heavy exposition. Instead, the author plops the reader immediately into the world of the book, with the fast-moving plot sweeping seamlessly from the Blue Ridge Parkway into the parallel Elven world of Fae, bringing the good-natured dogs along with the reader for a phenomenal adventure. As relationships developed and new mythical creatures were introduced, I found each plot turn engaging and, more interestingly, I was struck by how these characters, with differing magical delineations, could authentically grow into such fast friends.
5.0 out of 5 starsKept me hooked from page 1. Already starting Heritage Part 2!

I couldn't get enough of this book. I truly enjoyed the storyline and premise of the book. It's a modern take on vampires. It has everything- danger, excitement, love, loss, magic, fantasy and twists and turns. I had no idea how the story would end and at every turn I kept wanting more! Being from Virginia I loved all the local references too. By the end of it I felt like I knew these characters. Its so current and relevant. I think this is a book for everyone! I've just started the second edition Heritage and can't wait to see what these characters get into this time around!

Vampires, you say? I’m in. Fantastical beings and the possibility of stumbling upon them in the woods, even better. The story moves quickly bringing to life a vivid, beautiful world and a wonderfully diverse and charming ensemble. I hate reviews that hint at details of the story, so just know that I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure and am eagerly anticipating Book 2. Allow yourself to be drawn into Michael’s world; you’ll be glad you did.
