    A great start

    Magic, wizards, secrets, and evil organizations combine to fuel the start of the Wizards of Seattle series. I'm not the biggest fan of serials, and I do usually wait until all the books are completed. I'm just impatient, but the blurb drew me in as I love books that feature magic, curses, and the mundane rising. Jason, the MC, is mundane but not in a boring human sense; he's a wizard without a job, who finds himself the target of a deadly curse. I enjoyed this opening as it revealed the world for those of us who haven't read John O'Riley's other books, but those who have will still enjoy. It's a great book for lovers of urban fantasy and paranormal genres. I received a copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Entertaining read!

    Inheritance (Wizards of Seattle Series Book 1) is a fantasy story in a contemporary, magical world in which everyone is a wizard. I was hooked from the beginning when a curse, in the form of a black-eyed woman, is pursuing the protagonist. It jumps right into the action and you began learning about their powers. Jason knows instinctively she’s not human and what she’s there for, as him and his friends attempt to fight her off. Chapter 2 has its first twist in the story where you really get a greater sense of how incredible this world is, and I couldn’t help but continue reading to the end. This is very well-written, with ample descriptions, making it easy to immerse myself in the story. I like the way the author blended everyday life with fantasy and magic. Exciting plot and lots of action - would recommend.

    fun read!

    I'm not sure I would have picked this book up if it wasn't offered right now for free, because I just do not have much experience with this genre. For real, the most I've read is Harry Potter. I loved Harry Potter despite the fact that there were wizards because the writing was just so good. But I took a chance and I am really glad I did. The story's genesis isn't earth shattering, which I actually like, because a lot of books in this genre can easily go way over the top. Yes, they have superhuman abilities, but I want some sort of relatibility. It begins with a man who has not had the best of luck and inherits a house, on the condition that he live with relatives. I think we can all relate to this premise, of finally thinking life has turned around when you then have to confront relationship strains that you had avoided. The point of all this, of course, is a master plan by his deceased female cousin, who wants to get her relatives to become white nights by practicing white magic. Fortunately, harmony takes over the house (to some extent). But just as things are settling in, he realizes that there is a group that previously made an attempt on his life and are trying to take his cousin and brother out. So now they find themselves united against a common enemy, but some of the earlier relationship strain pokes through. They have to determine whether they can really rely on one another to defeat the enemy. A quick, good read with fairly developed characters.

    Strong start to the series

    I absolutely loved reading ‘Inheritance.’ This is my first experience with author John O’Riley but I can’t imagine it being my last. I was really impressed with the story he put together and I fell in love with the way magic worked in this world. It was an interesting plot feature to bind Jason, his brother and his cousin together in order to get the inheritance. It created an interesting dynamic that really added to the story. ‘Inheritance’ was a strong start that painted a vivid picture of this magical world. I’ll be interested to see what else O’Riley has to offer in the rest of the Wizards of Seattle Series.
