The author sent me an ARC of this book (epub format) in exchange for an honest review.
My rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ (four stars)
Roxanne Fosch has joined the Hunters.
She no longer has to run and hide, but other problems have surfaced. Her clan has other plans for her, and even the combined might of the hunters might not be able to save her.
To survive, Roxanne will have to choose between being labeled a traitor and cast out as a rogue – or join hands with the darker powers to save her life, and the lives of her friends.
To achieve her goals, she’ll have to risk her life. But can she control the powers she’s still learning to use, and fears so much?

Sensing danger, I turned, searching the illuminated circle around us, trying to see into the darkness beyond. I wanted to whisper him a question, but my words were held back by his savage expression.
Diggy shifted and took a step forward. I followed, and he raised a fist in the air, a silent command for me to stay still, and I froze. He glanced back over his shoulder, placed a finger on his lips, which I thought was ridiculously funny, considering.
And he disappeared. There once, then gone. Not moved in a blur or too fast that I couldn’t follow.
This book introduces you to Roxanne Fosch’s new life as a hunter. New challenges arise and the question of ‘who is friend or foe’ is not a basis for easy decisions.
With “Heir of Doom”, Jina S. Bazzar presents us with the second instalment of “The Roxanne Fosch Files” series. This is the second book in a series, with a complex protagonist on a quest for the truth about a missing child as well as about her own past, while having to face unexpected challenges. The story is nicely elaborated, comprises interesting turns, and has a good flow. Jina S. Bazzar introduces each character with care, providing them with sufficient depth for their respective relevance. I was drawn into the story right away – as Roxanne’s invisible friend. I could easily envision the characters and locations – with amazing colour intensity. I had a great time reading “Heir of Doom”. I am looking forward to continuing the story.
This is for you if you like urban fantasy, likeable characters, surprises, and good storytelling.

About the author
Jina was born and raised in Brazil, where she had a joyful and fulfilling childhood. Soon after she graduated from high school, she was diagnosed with a chronic disease that caused gradual vision loss. She became blind at the age of twenty-three. She has since lived in the United States and Brazil, though currently resides in the Middle East.
Like most authors, Jina had always been an avid reader, a fan of the fantastic, but was denied the joy of books when she became blind. Once she discovered screen readers, she picked up the habit of reading again, but discovered that reading was no longer enough, so she started writing her own book.
When she’s not writing in the Roxanne Fosch series or her blog, she’s writing articles for Conscious talk Magazine, where she works as a columnist.

Great review, Karen! This sounds like an interesting read 🙂
Thank you very much, Jacquie. 🙂
It is a great read, especially if you read the previous books first you will understand Roxanne’s actions.
Oh thank you! I’m glad you were able to connect.
It was a pleasure, Jina. Roxanne is complex and I am grateful that you let me read the previous books first. This helps me understand her. I am looking forward to reading more…
Great review Karen, as always. I have so many books to read, along with my own sequel to finish. One day I’ll retire and do nothing but read and write!
Thanks for your kind words, Sandra. Same here – so many books to read, a book to finish… One day we will be happily retired and fill our days with reading and writing! Cheers!
