Review: Family Heir by Sara M. Drake

Family Heir: A Bigfoot Novel - Sara M Drake
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
Family Heir is an urban fantasy that really wasn't anything like what I was expecting. It's less about hunting and more about supernatural politics, relationships, and discoveries. That said, once I shifted my mindset, I enjoyed the characters and the story.

There were so many things I liked about main character Kelley but some things I really disliked as well. She was young, college age, rebelling against the role her family was trying to force upon her. There were times when she seemed so deep and knowledgeable and others she seemed idiotic. By the end of the novel, she had resolved the main issue that bugged me, so I guess I can let it go.

Ex-husband Troy was an intriguing character. When he was first introduced, I didn't know what to think of him-- he was so odd. As the novel progressed and we learned his back story, I grew to really like him. Agent Brent is sweet, nice, and somewhat bland. What I liked the most about him was his loyalty and his open mind.

As you can tell from the title, this book is about Bigfoot (Bigfoots or Bigfeet). Learning about their society was interesting, if not strange. Ms. Drake has quite the imagination! I really liked the first half of the book-- it was fast-paced and full of action. Around the midpoint, everything changed and slowed down-- becoming more spiritual and politically based. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the story and would definitely pick up another book about these characters.
