Willow Cross’s “Inheritance” is the first book ever I’ve read of this author, and I can assure you it won’t be the last! I was always wondering why other readers were gushing about her books, until I read “Inheritance” - and I was blown away, to say the least.

First off, I need to mention here, that I don’t usually read werewolf-themed books or anything related to werewolves. I find werewolves dreary and the theme repetitive; but I was pleasantly surprised to find that this is not the

I recently purchased a Willow Cross book and was asked to review one of her books as well. I opened up my Kindle and started reading the Willow Cross book for review, not realizing that it was the second book in the series. The absolutely amazing thing, aside from the writing, was that I thought it was the first in the series, not the second, all the way up until the end. The book could be a stand-alone book! I immediately picked up, and started, book one. So far it's as good as book 2, and jus ...more

The Dark Gifts: Inheritance, is the second book in the series. I had been waiting ever so patiently (*cough cough*) for this book to reach my possession. By patiently, I mean not at all. I was highly anticipating reading this book as I had absolutely loved the first book in the series.

Firstly, I knew beforehand that it would not directly link to the previous book, and consequently it was not an overall surprise when I started reading it that it did not follow on. This, I feel, was a very clever

The Dark Gifts Inheritance by Willow Cross

After Jason turned 21 he thought he was losing his mind. During the three full nights of the full moon strange things were happening to him and he had no memory of what he did. He was terrified at the thought of what could be happening to him. His sister, Sara was beginning to think he needed a shrink as well. That is until the horrifying events of the last few months stopped her. Why was Jason building a huge cage in the basement of their h

Willow Cross has out done her self with this one. I am a huge fan of Willows & love all her books, but Inheritance is by far my favorite book yet. From the very start I was drawn into the world of Inheritance. I love all the different point of views, you get so much more story that way & they are wrote in a way that you don't get confused. After the death of their aunt, Sarah & Jason inherited her house. It is there they begin to discover their family secret. Which leads them on an a ...more

I bought this book on Amazon.

I loved this book! Sarah and Jason made wonderful main characters... Their childhood was so sad, then when they actually found someone in their family, all hell breaks loose. I loved how the story is wound into the first book of this series Birthright. At first I thought "How is this book 2?" LOL I am used to when a book ends, then the next book in the series startes right where the other left off. But in the end I was really really happy about this book!

I love how the end tied together with Birthright, but the funny thing was I didnt tie it all together until the old medicine man came into the book, then things started clicking!!!

I don't even know where to start! I love the authors type of writing, it is way different than others in her genre. This book is the 2nd book in the series, but don't worry, it could stand alone. If you haven't read the 1st book "Birthright", you will not be lost. This book revolves more around the werewolves and the hunters, but still includes other paranormal beings, including some from "Birthright". Sarah and her brother Jason have had their share of ups and downs, but they have no clue what ...more

Willow is an Amazing Author ... her characters and storylines are solid and seductive

"Inheritance" is book 2 in the "Dark Gift" series but stands out on its own and is unlike any sequeal i have ever read .. at first i was a little confused because i couldnt find the link between this book and the first book in the series "Birthright" but towards the end of the book the stories merged and the link became obvious and i was thrilled with the genius of how the story stood all on its own

Werewolves like you've never known before. This captivating story will pull you into a supernatural world that is so detailed and'll wonder if it's real! Highly recommended! Don't forget to enjoy Birthright by Willow Cross to enhance your experience in the supernatural world!

Inheritance is a story about a bother and sister standing by each other in a world that seeks to destroy them. Growing up in foster homes with no knowledge of their family wasn't easy. But the change

The Dark Gifts Inheritance is the fourth book I've read by Willow Cross and once didn't disappoint me. One aspect I love about Willow's style is - I wind up feeling emotionally attached to most of the characters. Love it. I also enjoyed the travel to far-away places in this book, plus the fact that our heroes can't quite seem to get on solid ground before - bam! - the next calamity happens.

This book involves werewolves and family commitments. If you thought Thanksgiving at

The Dark Gifts #2

Although this book is the 2nd in the series, it could easily be read as a stand-alone (but you’ll then be left wanting to read the first immediately). As with the first book, I was completely engrossed from the first chapter and just couldn’t put it down. Incredibly well written with characters that draw you in, you’ll soon be in the middle of the action rather than just reading about it. Sarah and Jason have no idea who they really are, and their

Reviewer: Bex

Willow Cross successfully weaves an exciting action-packed story in Inheritance. After my initial confusion that Inheritance didn't follow on directly from book one, I soon really enjoyed the fact that we had the opportunity to discover more about the werewolves.

Following siblings Sarah and Jason, it's very easy to get caught up the action and their journey as they search for answers. The story flows well, with a good balance of peaks of adrenaline-fuelled tension, dram

My Review: First off, can we say; My god, Willow Cross is a genius! Inheritance is part of The Dark Gifts series and this little gem is a SERIOUS gift to any avid reader of the paranormal genre! I absolutely thought that Michael from the first book Birthright had me hook, line and sinker, but oh, Jason is a dish as well. I love the effortless flow with which all of Willow's book are written. But this one is absolutely my favorite right now! This book is #2 in the series but could so be a stand a ...more

Oh my goodness!! Where to start?! Willow has done it again! Not only is her writing style completely addictive, her descriptions of scenes were, again, so intense that I had dreams about this book. The Werewolf/Hunter/Druid combo is just something you wouldn't expect. The character development for this book was off the charts incredible! Following Sarah and Jason through this book and seeing characters from book 1, Birthright, was amazing! I recommend this action packed book to all Paranormal lo ...more

I was gifted this book on smashwords in exchange for my honest opinion and review of it.
The cover....hmmm to be totally honest I am not sure I would pick this one up in a book store. The blurb would attract me but the cover I didn't find it as attractive and it didn't draw me in like some covers have done. Having said that the cover does represent what Sarah and Jason are very well, they are shifter's.
So Sara and Jason never knew their true heritage, so when Jason begins ch

First, Thank you SO much Ms. Willow Cross, for giving me a copy to read and put up on my blog... I was so intrigued by the cover, but I am thrilled to say I LOVED it when I opened it and started reading...

This story is literally about tragedy and what you do to pick yourself up and keep on surviving after those brutal happenings. This is Sarah and Jason's story, who are siblings, who lost their parents at a very young age, and grew up in foster care. They then inherit their long lost

LOVED this book!

At first i was wondering how it fitted in with the first book, and was a little disappointed that the story didnt carry on with Michael and Liz....but i didnt need to be!

This book revolves around a brother and sister, Jason and Sarah, who were orphaned. Suddenly Jason begins to have nights where he cant remember what has happened, waking up naked in the woods and covered in blood.
Waiting for the next night, he caged himself and Sarah stayed to watch

Rating 5 *****stars!

This book was provided free from the author in exchange for honest literary review.

Sarah and Jason have really had some horrible luck with life. Orphaned as small kids they had to endure the foster care care system for the vast majority of their childhood. Then after Jason became of age, he did take custody of his sister but struggled financially to m

The second book in Willow Cross's Dark Gifts series is just as compelling as the first. Two orphans find they have a family with a dark secret after they come of age. At first I thought this first book was completely unrelated to the first, only linked by the fact that the characters have a dark gift. I was well into the story before I realized that instead of this plot merely being a continuation of the first story, it was a separate thread that Willow was expertly weaving into the whole saga. ...more

This was an amazing story as a sequel or as a stand alone. I did not have the opportunity to read the first book in this series and to tell you the truth the author does such an amazing job with this story you don't need to read it unless you want to. Characters are well developed, story line flows from beginning to end.. nothing is rushed.. or left too vague. In other words it was great!

I love a good paranormal and this one surprising starts off as solely wolf... as the story progre

I read this book without reading the first book. I just want to let everyone know- this is part of a series but completely able to stand alone. You don’t need to read he first one to find this a great read. This is a great book because of that and I applaud Cross for such good writing. So the basic plot is that Sarah and her brother find they don’t exactly know their past every well. In fact they were actually hidden by their past and do not know about their family history of werewolves and have ...more
