Heritage Avenged by Marsha Moore

Synopsis:  Lyra McCauley receives an alarming letter from the coroner who evaluated her deceased aunt, originally thought to have died of cancer. The news causes Lyra to take leave from her job and travel from sunny Tampa to the frozen island community in northern Michigan. Questioning whether Dragonspeir magic was responsible for her aunt’s death, she resolves to learn the truth and accepts the Imperial Dragon’s appointment into the Alliance sorcery training. 

Additionally, becoming proficient in magic craft is the only way she can bridge the gap between her mortal human world and her lover’s. Cullen, a 220-year-old wizard, is dependent upon his Dragonspeir magic for immortality. He is her only family now; she cannot lose him.

Evil forces block her and try to steal her inherited scribal aura. Riding a stealth dragon, a cloaked rider pursues Lyra. Both the Alliance and Dark Realm alchemists lay tricks and traps. Her aura equals that of the first and most powerful Scribe, but will Lyra’s novice training allow her to discover the truth? Will she be able to be with Cullen, or will the Dark Realm keep them apart?

Review:  I received this copy in exchange for a review, as part of the Bewitching Book Tours Virtual Book Tour.  This in no way influenced my review.

Heritage Avenged is the second book in the Enchanted Bookstore series.  I have not read the first book in the series, and though it would have been helpful to have read the first book in the series first, it didn't take away from my enjoyment of this book.  

Heritage Avenged is a fantasy story dealing with dragons and wizards.  Marsha A. Moore weaves a magical and fantastical story with plenty of action, adventure and romance.  I really enjoyed the relationship between Lyra and Cullen.  I also liked the owl, Kenzo.  The story flowed really well from one chapter to the next, and at approximately 350 pages, was a good length.  I enjoyed the book and plan to read book one before continuing on with the rest of the series.
