Dark Inheritance is told primarily from three point of views (the adult twin siblings) and Rosaline’s daughter. It was good to see the main character of being a mother, added a little spice to the dark story line. It was also a nice touch to add her daughter’s point of view because the girl was doing an homework assignment about the family. With her point of view, we learned what she learned about the family and she was able to tell her mother all about it.
It was good to see her kids being different ages. The author reflected their difference very well in they way of banter, emotions, and events. I’m also embarrassed to say that the teenage conversation over Skype was confusing to me at first… shows my age. Yikes! 😉 (I’m not that old but I’m not a teenager either.) The banter between characters and the descriptions were wonderful to read and added more to the story. Good banter and descriptions really do help out in stories that are mainstreams (like about ghosts).
This is not a novel for everyone and is for readers older than 21. There are some explicit adult details, and if you don’t read novels that have hints of rape, don’t read this one. It’s a good book to read during October, ghosts and all, but really can be read any time. It’s about a family after all and a spooky house.
The ending is a memorable one and leaves room for a future continuation. It would be interesting seeing a short story or novella to see what happens to the burned ‘witches’.
