Heir of Arcadia by Deborah Adams and Kimberley Perkins - Book Tour & Review + Giveaway



Heir of Arcadia
Deborah Adams, Kimberley Perkins
Publication date: July 24th 2020
Genres: Adult, Adventure, Science Fiction

Can Collins and Quinn call a truce long enough to survive?
Quinn’s hectic job as a special agent keeps her busy, but never busy enough to tamp out her inconvenient attraction to CEO billionaire Julian Collins. He is usually the biggest pain in her side, but he can also be recklessly charming. When Collins asks her to open a secret investigation into his company, she worries that extra time alone with him might test her resolve to stay away.
Julian Collins always dreamed of being on Arcadia, a fictional world from his favorite video game. But lately, he’s been seeing things from the game in real life. He feels like he’s losing his mind, and now is not the time to go crazy. His company is going to be split into a dozen pieces if he can’t discover the secrets hidden in the Special Projects division.
After three years of quasi-friendship, Collins and Quinn have honed arguing into a true art form. As far as he’s concerned, she’s off-limits, but also quick-witted and sexy as hell. She’s the perfect person for the job.
As Quinn and Collins delve deeper into their investigation, secrets will lead them to things no one on earth can explain. Will they discover that searing hot kisses can be even more fun than well-placed insults when a whole new universe is spread before them?

My Review
Heir of Arcadia is a fun read. I liked how it was basically a sort of spin-off of the Waypoint series. While I had only read Waypoint and Intel, I knew enough about most of the characters in this book to follow along and enjoy their new adventure years after the disaster that brought them all together. This one, though, is a little more adult, and much more sci-fi. It turns out that the game some of the characters enjoyed playing back in Waypoint was based on a real place. Arcadian Fortress was just a computer game to them... until they discovered Arcadia was a real planet. Now, the group of friends must band together to try and help save Arcadia from the clutches of the Draconians, just like in the game. Easy, right? Not at all.
I really enjoyed Heir of Arcadia. There's a lot going on, and it kept me engaged and eager to see how it would all play out. I liked reuniting with characters from Waypoint (and Intel), too. I had grown to love them, so I'm glad the authors brought them back. Their lives had changed a bit since last meeting them, and they change even more during this adventure. 
The world-building for Arcadia is vivid and fascinating, and it really did feel like being on another planet at times. That was a plus for me.
That ending, though. Dang. Now I want to know more.
If you're a fan of the authors' previous series, or just a fan of sci-fi in general, you'll want to give Heir of Arcadia a whirl.
4 stars!
