My Review:

Isabella Foxworthy, the grand-daughter of noteworthy 1930’s actors is thrown into a situation where she must find and refortify the Violet Fire protecting her and her family’s hotel with the help of The Lost Heir. The first chapter was nice and there were portions that were good, (The author and co-authors did a really good job of describing the parts of Los Angeles the characters visited) and parts that weren’t so great (basically little to no development of the characters and how they fit into the story as it is weaved together. Case in point the character that the book is named after {The Lost Heir himself}. He seemed like more of an afterthought than anything as he just pops up from time to time and then disappears again. There were a lot of characters that seemed to just be thrown in to move the story along and were then dropped like a hot potato. Overall, I fell in love with the cover, was intrigued by the description and was sorely disappointed with what I actually read.

 Description:
Isabella Foxworthy was just another girl…until she learned she was an empath, able to read the energy of others. A secret world known as the Violet City lies beneath her family’s hotel in Los Angeles. Through this discovery, Isabella is catapulted into a whirlwind of magic, adventure, and danger. The Violet City holds the key to protecting her stability; her family hotel, her friends, and her very sanity. With morphlings, empaths, and fair folk also comes a powerful entity that twists her mind into knots, threatening everything she loves. Now, Isabella and her new friends—a guitar-playing jock, his gifted but neurotic brother, and a set of over-indulged twins—have until her 16th birthday to save her world with the help of someone who’s been lost for a very long time…the lost Foxworthy heir. But will they find him in time? And will he be a friend or foe?
