Adalynn Taethen wants nothing more than to serve her beloved home, the kingdom of Rothschan, in their famed military. But when a disastrous meeting destroys her dream, it also uncovers long-dormant family secrets and newfound magical powers for Adalynn.
With Enlar, a fellow fledgling magician, she decides to travel to Calia, to learn more about her magic. And maybe, even, her family.
But Calia is Rothschan's sworn enemy, and those who use magic are even more hated and feared by Adalynn's people.
Now she must master her magic before it destroys her — and before an insane official, bent on revenge, destroys all Adalynn holds dear.
Heir of Magic and Mischance is the third book in the Kingdom Legacy series.
Thank you to Escapist Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book! I voluntarily leave this review!
On Adalynn’s twenty-first birthday, she is finally able to enlist in the Rothschan military. With the extra funds provided by her employment, she can help her parents and make long-needed repairs on their home. But the day she enlists, an accident sets the enlistment office on fire and forces Adalynn to run for her life. Uncontrollable magic has awakened within her and the kingdom of Rothschan is no longer safe. Adalynn flees to Calia, where she hopes to learn control over her power. But Renton won’t let her escape so easily. With the Rothschan army at his back, Renton is determined to bring the Kingdom of Calia to its knees and capture Adalynn.
Rachanee Lumayno never fails to embrace the bonds of family in each of her novels. Within just a few short chapters the reader can feel how close Adalynn and her parents are. And this makes it all the more heartbreaking when she must leave them behind on her flight from Rothschan. On her own for the first time, Adalynn battles with the uncertainty of her future and a sudden influx of power she never imagined could be real. Sheltered to believe Rotschan was a Kingdom of strict yet fair laws and magic was a myth, she has a lot to learn.
As Adalynn navigates life in Calia, she embraces an entirely new culture of magic and acceptance. While it may take her a while to adjust, she is quick to form new friendships. And when the stakes are increasingly raised, Adalynn will have to rely on her newfound friends to overcome the odds. Readers will be captivated as Adalynn stands alongside her fellows, ready to face down whatever new obstacles Renton throws in their path.
Heir of Magic and Mischance takes readers on a magic-filled adventure with a wonderful cast of characters. There will also be a few character appearances and mentions from the previous novels in the Kingdom Legacy Series. I enjoy how each novel is its own adventure and can be read separately or in order. Though reading them out of order may spoil the previous novels. If you enjoy easy-to-read, lighter-hearted fantasy novels give this one a try!
