Recent art school graduate Bekah thought she’d hit the jackpot: an unknown relative died, and she inherited a small fortune and a huge house in the mountains of North Carolina.
Trey Howard, the lawyer who handled the estate, is a handsome man in his twenties and they hit it off right away—and soon become more than friends. Bekah expected a pleasant year to get her head together and have a romantic fling. Problem is, the house is full of junk...and siblings she didn’t know she had are willing to kill her for it.
More important, the junk in her new house is magical, she’s surrounded by monsters, and her life seems to be in mortal peril every time she ventures into a new room. As Bekah discovers more about her mysterious benefactor and the magical world he inhabited, she’s realizes that as tough and resourceful as she is, she might just be in over her head...
Heirs of Grace is a tale of family and magic, action and wonder, blending the strong heroine, cheeky humor, and dark fantasy that have become the hallmarks of Tim Pratt’s writing.

This must be what it is like to go from a normal only child to…

Heirs of Grace by Tim Pratt is full of magic, personalities and finding your way in life. Bekah is the main character and the main heir. She is going to art school and seems quite lost. She has lots of attitude and opinions, some self-righteousness going on too. She is also independent with a touch bravery.

I liked the characters and there were many of them. The interaction between the siblings was crazy at times. The oldest daughter and the matter eating brother are ones no one would want on their family tree. The things that Bekah had to learn about magic and the way her father tried to assist from the beyond were insane but very entertaining.

I purchased the audible book on sale because it sounded interesting. I mean who wouldn’t want to inherit a magical house and find out that they had magical powers too. I am glad that I did as I found the quirky story was just what I needed for a business trip.

The story was narrated by Leslie Hull. I think she did a good job. She definitely brought the story to life. Her accents were pretty good. However, I still went back and forth between the narration and actually reading the kindle book myself.

My rating is 4 stars, I love the story and narration. If you are looking for a fun read or would prefer to listen this is a great book for some summer reading.

About Leslie Hull

“I have always heard actors talk about their ‘artistic home’ and it has always seemed like a strange concept to me. Actors are, by nature, nomads – gypsies – people of the night, here one show and gone the next, but when I was afforded the opportunity to work at Williamston Theatre I finally understood what that meant. It is a place where you feel respected, for your craft, for your time, for your input and ideas. It is a place where you feel comfortable, cared for, and free to create beautiful, fun and funny moving art. It is a place where you love the people you work with and are inspired by them, beyond the project or performance you are a part of. These are all things I felt while working with the folks at in Williamston.” Leslie’s Credits at the WT: Onstage in The Usual: A Musical Love Story and A Charlie Brown Christmas Fundraiser, dialect coach for Ebenezer, ASM for While We Were Bowling. Leslie currently splits her time between Chicago and Detroit, as a teacher, acting coach, audio book narrator and photographer.
