Mateless. Dead. It's been two hundred years since Zorgroth's bloody ways threatened peace on Lahkia, and his influence was thought to be long forgotten. Now, children are disappearing and village archers are being found in pieces. One of Lahkia's leaders has called for an emergency meeting, but he fears it may be too late.
Hiding beneath the floorboards of this meeting, Azura hoped to overhear something adults wouldn't share with children. Her heart races as she hears the leaders discuss someone who calls himself the Heir of Darkness. She listens as they speak of terrible creatures, of the mysterious deaths in the mountains, and as they debate the Heir's unthinkable demand:
Surrender five hundred children per territory--or face destruction.
Azura knows they only have one moon cycle before his deadline. If she hopes to unravel his identity in time, she must learn to use her instincts, trust in unexpected friendships, and believe in herself. But when even Lahkia's leaders don't have answers, how can a child hope to stop a war?

A great story all around. I am very particular about the books I read and like. It is very difficult to find a good "wolf" based story that doesn't focus on werewolves and the drama and love affairs that follow. This is a unique story from the world of wolf like creatures called Lahkians. The book is well written, the author has an eye for detail that keeps you deeply involved in the Lahkian's world. The story has great and individualized characters, and a plot line that keeps you guessing. The action is intense and the emotions are more so. This is a book in which you will encounter all emotions, and I love a story that can do that. The book will leave you wanting more, and like other reviewers here, I can't wait for the sequel. For a first-time author, she makes a spectacular read. Great for all readers, young and young at heart.
I was taken aback by how deep, complex, and truly beautiful this story is. This is a book that will grip reader's emotions, and find those that can relate with the character in some way or another. The main character at first was frustrating to read about, seemingly selfish and a brat, but she eventually warmed into my heart, so that my heart broke when her's broke.
Lahkia : Heir of Darkness, is a novel worth reading. I recommend it for ages 10 and up. Children will find fascinating, adults will find it thrilling and powerful. I think anyone can relate to this story.
I honestly don't have much to say other than I enjoyed this book. It had a certain conspiracy feel to it that I didn'tquite get into, and the ending wrapped up plenty of it, though still had a few awfully sudden transitions. Anyways, I still enjoyed it overall plenty enough and hope there will be a second book to read.
