My goodness this is an elaborate story! There are so many different stories going on but they are all intertwined. I've not read a book that handles different story lines so well either. I feel like I'm really invested in each one instead of just the main story. The book held my interest from the first page and I felt like I had to rip myself out of it when taking a break. I will be one of the first ones in line for book two!

Full disclosure: I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway. This has in no way influenced the opinions expressed in this review.

I became interested in Heiress of Healing hoping it was the start of an epic fantasy series and began reading it fearing it may in fact be merely paranormal romance disguised under a thin veil of more "proper" fantasy. On both counts, I was right and wrong at the same time, because it is something between the two, featuring a decent enough actual fantasy side an

This book was everything I expected it to be and so SO much more.

The book spans about 15-20 years by my estimates, and tells the story of the young healer and the baby she delivers under duress. Whilst it follows a few characters, Iminique the healer is the main one, and we watch her grow from an uncertain child into a beautiful, graceful woman with all the wrong ideas about what it takes to be a wife in the First Demense.

I have so many things to say about this book that I don't know where to start. Well, first of all I want to thank Goodreads and Sonya Lano for the possibility of reading this book and for being so nice to me.
Heiress of Healing was a page-turner since the beginning and I enjoyed the book until the very last page (that ending killed me... I want to know what happens next so badly!). The world-building and characters were done very well and I can't really fit the book in only one genre. I'd say it

My tbr list is long, and I'm not as fast a reader as I used to be. Too many distractions.

I didn't know what to expect, to be honest. I traded books with Sonya Lano during a visit to her hometown of Prague and for quite a while the books gathered dust amongst the dozens of other books waiting to be read... romantic fantasy... romantic fantasy... romance... it's been a while since I read a romance novel, not my cuppa, not everything has to be. And fantasy... I am very very nitpicky about my fantas

I'll say a good 4.5 stars.

Stunning writing. Just stunning.
Right from the first I was drawn in to Iminique's world and magic.
This is an epic tale, with a large cast introduced over many chapters. Yet, I never felt bogged down by too many new names. They were introduced with just enough depth to get to know them before others came into the picture.
It's a tale of political intrigue, with a back-bone of love, desire and trust (or not). It heads down some pretty dark paths, so is not for the easily o
The relationships in this book are all kinda rape-y. I don't see the allure any of the female characters have for the guys they are into.
