She had gotten the invitation from Dr. Edison Lee,a man who knew her father and had ulterior motives of his own.At the convention she meets various friends and followers of her father, she also meet [...]
"I laughed until I cried," is perhaps not a phrase that one would expect to find in the review of a gothic romance. However, in the case of Inheritance of Shadows, it was the book's one real saving grace. If I hadn't entertained myself trying to guess sci-fi/fantasy references and giggling over (perhaps unintentionally) hilarious scenes, I think this novel would have driven me mad.This is a partial review.

Book Review originally published here:iheartreading/mini-rev This book was a ‘meh’ read. It had some good qualities. At times, it was creepy. Other times, it was laughable. Some of the characters lacked depth, others had sufficient depth, and even managed to be quite creepy. However, the book overall quite enjoyable, not the best, definitely not the worst.
I was impressed with this creepy read. A read about the daughter of a professor, who had developed sort of a cult like reaction with a book he had written and then committed suicide in front of her while she is a toddler, the daughter returns to attend a convention in honor of the father's book and meets former co-workers of him who are just as unusual as he isen the fun begins! I will probably seek out more from this author as my TBR list lightens up.
