Entrusted with the safe keeping of The Book & the wickedness contained in it, Blaine & Elian embark on a journey filled with unusual creatures & a looming prophecy in the unfamiliar & ancient land of Vestia. First, they have to find their way back to each other, trusting new allies & befriending old foes along the way.
With time running out & the fate of the universe resting squarely upon their shoulders, Blaine & Elian face an unknown enemy who will stop at nothing to unleash the evil soul trapped in The Book. But Elian knows a secret about Blaine’s destiny. Will the secret prophecy divide their pathways, letting doubt & fear sabotage all they have accomplished?

My Review
The Heir is book two in the Spinners Saga, and it continues on from where book one, The Telling, left off. Elian and Blaine are separated; Elian is safe in the land of Vestia, but Blaine is being held hostage in a "zoo" run by ogres. Her memory is gone, and her magic has been subdued. But with the help of a half-breed and a mysterious man, Blaine escapes and makes her way back to Elian. Once together again, Blaine must get her memories back and continue her journey with Elian to save the Book from the clutches of evil...before it's too late. 
I was definitely a fan of The Telling, and so I was eager to see how The Heir would play out. It was definitely an interesting read. There are secrets, lies, and betrayal, but also a budding romance, and some intriguing truths get revealed. The journey is perilous, and at times it seems hopeless, but Elian and Blaine (and their small group) are willing to do whatever it takes to protect the Book. 
I will say, a couple of spots throughout the story were a little slow for me, but I powered through them, and it all paid off. There is a lot going on, and a few new characters, but it's pretty easy to keep up with everyone. I think my favorite new character is Senna.
And that ending... 
It makes me wonder what might happen in the next book. I'm definitely curious and will be continuing along with the series. Looking forward to book three!
4 stars from me!
