As each of the cousins ventures to Falcon Point they learn of another who seeks to claim the grand property and the treasures it hides.
thoughts & feelings
To be honest I am not much of a suspense/thriller reader. As my husband would say my spirit animal is a chicken. I cannot handle scary or super intense books or movies. They rip my nerves apart and I can't sleep. With that being said I can honestly recommend this novel with high praise and know that it won't give anyone nightmares. It does need to come with a warning label though. And since none was provided I have written my own:
WARNING THIS BOOK IS ABOUT TO TAKE OVER YOUR LIFE. DO NOT BEGIN READING UNLESS YOU HAVE HOURS OR A FEW DAYS TO DEDICATE.
"Heirs of Falcon Point" is one of the most captivating books I have read in a long time. I was fully engrossed in this novel from beginning to end. I'm not even exaggerating. I HAD to know what happened to the original Lang family (Leopold and his three children) and then HAD to know what was going on with the grand children. It is a very suspenseful and addictive book...but in a good way.
My dear husband can testify to my obsession with this novel. I was lucky enough to received an advanced readers copy of this novel (THANK YOU!) and had to keep my lips tight about the story line. Luckily my husband is not a big reader so spilled all of the beans to him. He heard about every single character, major event, and plot twist. Basically, we had a run down after every single point of view shift.
Do you want to know the best part? This is going to be a series! I cannot tell you how excited I was to learn this. I will be preordering the rest of the series as soon as possible.
