Publisher's Summary

Recent art school graduate Bekah thought she’d hit the jackpot: an unknown relative died, and she inherited a small fortune and a huge house in the mountains of North Carolina.

Trey Howard, the lawyer who handled the estate, is a handsome man in his 20s and they hit it off right away - and soon become more than friends. Bekah expected a pleasant year to get her head together and have a romantic fling. Problem is, the house is full of junk...and siblings she didn’t know she had are willing to kill her for it.

More important, the junk in her new house is magical, she’s surrounded by monsters, and her life seems to be in mortal peril every time she ventures into a new room. As Bekah discovers more about her mysterious benefactor and the magical world he inhabited, she’s realizes that as tough and resourceful as she is, she might just be in over her head...

Heirs of Grace is a tale of family and magic, action and wonder, blending the strong heroine, cheeky humor, and dark fantasy that have become the hallmarks of Tim Pratt’s writing.

Enjoyable story, but...

This was an unexpectedly enjoyable book. Funny, suspenseful, clever. My only complaint is the overuse of the F-word. I'm not a prude, but it's not like this was some inner city gritty crime novel. It's set in the south for heavens sake! And we say things like "for heavens sake!"

Not What I Expected

What a trip! It's like a hidden puzzle, Clue game, with good and bad guys and a bit of snogging. The narration is spot on! Try it. I believe you'll love it.

Great book. A series would be enjoyable.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Sure. It was fun. Easy reading. Times you needed to be sharp to follow. Other times was pretty fun. *Definitely needs a note about the language though*. My 13 yr old would enjoy this very much but too many f bombs thrown around consistently.

What did you like best about this story?

The real personality of the main character. She made me smile throughout.

Have you listened to any of Leslie Hull’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. This one was good though. Wasn't a distraction from the story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

More than anyone bargained for.

Any additional comments?

Another fun read. Most of the time there was no gut clench as I got through the stressful spots. Was easy to root for the main character. & I loved her friends. The brother scene completely weirded me out though.

decent listen

Decent fantasy story, narrator has a few minor issues like making any male with a southern accent sound like he's 65 years old but overall wasn't bad. At least she narrates like a normal person talks and doesn't feel the need to precisely enunciate every single letter of every word like some do. It isn't great literature, but it's an interesting story that moves at a good pace, and that's all I was looking for. My biggest pet peeve is that the main character always referred to her love interest as a "boy," as in "the boy I like" or "the boy I kissed," even though they were both fully adult twenty-something college graduates instead of sixth graders. It just sounded childish. Maybe it was supposed to be her feminist answer to women her age being called "girls" by men; maybe it was some linguistic fad from recent years that I missed (I'm forty-something, not twenty-something). Either way, it was annoying, but not enough to ruin the book.

Quirky and Amusing

Heirs of Grace kept me enthralled from the very first page to last. A magical story with a moral compass.

Normal only Child to...OMG!

Heirs of Grace by Tim Pratt is full of magic, personalities and finding your way in life. Bekah is the main character and the main heir. She is going to art school and seems quite lost. She has lots of attitude and opinions, some self-righteousness going on too. She is also independent with a touch bravery.

I liked the characters and there were many of them. The interaction between the siblings was crazy at times. The oldest daughter and the matter eating brother are ones no one would want on their family tree. The things that Bekah had to learn about magic and the way her father tried to assist from the beyond were insane but very entertaining.

I purchased the audible book on sale because it sounded interesting. I mean who wouldn’t want to inherit a magical house and find out that they had magical powers too. I am glad that I did as I found the quirky story was just what I needed for a business trip.

The story was narrated by Leslie Hull. I think she did a good job. She definitely brought the story to life. Her accents were pretty good. However, I still went back and forth between the narration and actually reading the Kindle book myself.

My rating is 4 stars, I love the story and narration. If you are looking for a fun read or would prefer to listen this is a great book for some summer reading.

Good, but boring in bits

The narrator was good. The story was good, but the book dragged on in places. Not sure I'd read it again.

Really enjoyed this book

This book is a bit like listening to a sitcom. Lots of serious situations not taken very serious, lots of punchlines and jokes. If you don't mind your storytelling done in that fashion you should really enjoy this one. The characters are likeable and dislikeable and it's an interesting take on magic.

unexpected

I got this as a free book from Kindle for Samsung... I decided to get the audio to go with it because I have SOOOO many books to read and I can listen to books at work.

The narrator did a great job and I LOVED the story line.
I don't know what I was expecting going in to this, but I was not expecting this.
I loved this story and I will be reading/listening again. 🙃

Heirs of Grace

Loved it! Now that you have the characters worked out, where is the second book? I would love to see more of the house and the world mages grew up in.
