Audiobook Review: Forgotten Heir (Blueblood Vampires, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Forgotten Heir by Michelle Hercules

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Have you ever heard of the curse of the middle child? It’s real, and it makes you invisible. Growing up in a house with three headstrong witches, I was usually stuck playing the mediator.

When I met Rikkon, I immediately felt a kinship to him. He wasn’t invisible like me, but in a sense, he was forgotten. We bonded over things we couldn’t control. He was struggling with his demons, and I was lost.

It was easy to fall in love, but that was when things got complicated. When I thought we could be more than friends, Rikkon’s past came to rip my hopes to shreds. He recovered his memories, and with it, the knowledge that he was never free to be mine. Someone else had staked a claim, a bond so strong, that no mortal human could break.

Foolishly, I made a vow to help Rikkon reunite with his true mate, not realizing that by doing so, I might have unleashed the wrath of Ellnesari in our world.

The Hero: Rikkon – He is the brother of Vivi from Dark Prince. They are Nightingales and the children of the Nightingale Queen Maeve, who banished them from Ellnesare and took their powers away. Rikkon was in constant pain and turned to drugs to dull the pain. His and Vivi’s memories of being Nightingales (which seem similar to fae, and created the vampires), had been removed by a spell.

The heroine: Miranda – She is the younger sister of Aurora from Wild Thing and is the middle child of her family, often ignored and underestimated. She has always been the good girl, who has only rebelled in small ways, though she has been starting to do it more often and she wants to put a hex on the man Aurora was forced to get engaged to, she has to sneak out and go to the night market to get an ingredient.

The Story: Miranda and Rikkon meet at the night market and feel an immediate connection. Rikkon can’t forget Miranda and seeks her out more and more, but his memories of his past have been taken away, and when he finally gets them back, he realizes that the source of his pain all these years has been the fact that he had a fated mate in Ellnesare and when he was separated from her and his powers, he started to go crazy.

Rikkon knows that he has to get back to Ellnesare and to his fated mate, not because he wants to, but because he has to make his mother and the other Nightingales return to Earth because the first generation vampires have all been going mad since the Nightingales left, returning to their own realm. Miranda is determined to help him get to Ellnesare so he can be with his mate and the pain he has been feeling will finally end.

This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. It was narrated by Troy Duran and Mindy Kennedy whom I really enjoy listening to. Troy is my all time favorite narrator and has a deep sexy voice, while Mindy has a youthful feminine voice which matches the 18 year old witch, Miranda perfectly.

I really like how Michelle Hercules starts these books during the end of the timeline of the previous book. It serves the dual purpose of showing the events of previous book in case the reader forgets some of the prior book, but also gives a new perspective of the same scenes. Since in the prior book, was in the POV of the main characters in that book, but in this book those ending scenes are told in Rikkon and Mir’s points of view.

The story in this one was very good. I liked learning more about Rikkon and the Nightingales, and Miranda is a great character who laments the fact that everyone seems to overlook and underestimate her, but turns out to be the strongest witch in her family.
