Read on, my friends, to see where this one hit on the Addiction Scale!

The Lost Heir

by 
Isabella Foxworthy was just another girl…until she learned she was an empath, able to read the energy of others. A secret world known as the Violet City lies beneath her family’s hotel in Los Angeles. Through this discovery, Isabella is catapulted into a whirlwind of magic, adventure, and danger. The Violet City holds the key to protecting her stability; her family hotel, her friends, and her very sanity. With morphlings, empaths, and fair folk also comes a powerful entity that twists her mind into knots, threatening everything she loves. Now, Isabella and her new friends—a guitar-playing jock, his gifted but neurotic brother, and a set of over-indulged twins—have until her 16th birthday to save her world with the help of someone who's been lost for a very long time...the lost Foxworthy heir. But will they find him in time? And will he be a friend or foe?

MY REVIEW:
THE LOST HEIR by Allison Whitmore was another of those books that first latched it's claws in me with this gorgeous cover! Unfortunately those claws lost all their traction within the first few chapters.
I don't know if this fell flat because of a disconnect between the authors or if it was solely the 1 dimensional characters that did me in. The whole idea behind THE LOST HEIR is wonderful and I like the many author's styles of writing, but the plot was confusing and not exciting, just like all the characters.
Pacing was far slower than I had expected it to be and dragged in many places, especially the beginning. Add to that a confusion about our girl Isabella, her family, these "powers" she's supposed to have and her base personality and it's hard to recover.
There's a lot going on once you get past the first half of the book, but I had issues keeping up with it and the cast of characters. (All of which were either the same at their cores or plain old stereotypical)
I admit I skimmed a large portion of this one because when it came down to it, I just couldn't connect with the plot, characters or setting.
I hate writing negative reviews but I did receive THE LOST HEIR from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion so here it is. Sadly I can't recommend this one, but I would be willing to check out other works by the authors (maybe solo attempts).
