I have but two quibbles: The first could have been addressed by more thorough editing. Story and author suffer huge disservice by the numerous typos that unfortunately knock a reader out of sorts. If experienced often enough, a reader can be soured to the entire tale; at the very least discombobulated. Competition for consumer entertainment time is fierce already; no author can afford to defeat him/herself in such a manner.
There was also a wee let-down at the conclusion. After delighting in the rollicking and roaring action from the start, the story seemed to settle into more of an 'Ooh-ahh' bystander's view of the fireworks and explosions come tale's end. After decidedly NOT playing nice throughout events, the protagonist's decision to do so at the close was also somewhat surprising.
All in all, The Inheritance is a fine read, and I am delighted to add it to my library.

|I sincerely wish that folks who rate at either extreme would offer justification for a 10 or a 1 rating. I've read many books, and The Inheritance ranks no where near a '1' in my experience. A reasonable explanation rather than an anonymous hit-and-run slam would offer much more concrete information/opinion.|
