Heirs Of Tirragyl {Tour, Review, and Giveaway}

About Heirs of Tirragyl
Long live the queen . . . ?

Since birth, Nyla has shared everything with her twin brother – royal tutors, the right to the throne of Tirragyl... even their soul. Many believe it wholly belongs to Alexor and should be returned to him regardless of the sacrifice – Nyla's death. However, her future isn't the only one in question.

A threat looms over the kingdom. The influential Lord Lucian intends to seize the Grotto, an underworld settlement known for harboring fugitives. And if legend is to be believed, it is also the hiding place of the most powerful of objects, the Guardian Rock. As Nyla fights for her life, she realizes she's not only a soul heir but also the sole hope for the kingdom's survival.

About the Author
Joan Campbell is notoriously bad at finishing things but, ever since she found the key to the portal, she’s been escaping into worlds far more intriguing than her own. In her word-spun worlds, magic can be harnessed, kings and queens rule supreme and ancient books contain coveted secrets. Her characters face division, danger, their own fallible natures and—ultimately—grace. While her husband and two daughters have learned to fend for themselves, a hungry whine or meow inevitably breaks the spell and brings Joan back to her everyday life in Johannesburg, South Africa. Here Joan wields a tennis racket instead of a longbow and trains writers instead of warriors, knowing full well that the pen is mightier than the sword. Chains of Gwyndorr was a gold medallist in the 2017 Illumination Book Awards.

Note: I was given a free e-copy of this book in exchange of this review :) 

Twins, Nyla and Alexor, are crowned joint rulers. It seems all will be good now that they are ruling together. After all they both have always been close, and have good hearts. 

But Nyla's mysterious maid servant is still on edge. There are yet many people that would love to put Nyla away and control her brother. 

Meanwhile Shara and her new love Nicho have reached safety in Guardian Grotto's. Yet even in the safest place danger may still be too close for comfort... hidden in the form of something beautiful. Nicho must leave to help old friends, sending Shara in a whirlwind of loneliness. 

The apparent peace is starting to vanish... and with it all hope of good. Legends start springing up, and many wonder if they may hold truth: the gold-breasted bird and a mysterious group of assassins. Who will survive as a path of greed and lust is trod by evil?

Also read my goodreads review.

I enjoyed reading this book. I loved many characters... though both Shara and Nicho frustrated me. Shara a lot. To such a point I at times did not enjoy the book. 

The legends were interesting. I loved the part about a bird... and assassins... and certain characters I can't tell you about ;) 

It had a satisfactory story plot and ending. Just wouldn't have minded Shara's personality being different are gone altogether (maybe she's just one of those people who in real life I would give this long lecture on how to stop being a stupid idiot).

One this of interest: I did not read the first book to the series. I'm sure I'd get a lot more back story if I had done so, but the story held itself on it's own :) I do still want to read the first book, though.

Make sure to take part in the Facebook party if you have Facebook! 


  1. Yay, great review. I did a review, too. Shara was a bit annoying, but I think she was supposed to seem like she overcame a large obstacle of magic corrupting her.
    But, this is great!


    1. That makes sense I guess... but still ;p I'll check out your post :D

    2. I totally understand what you ladies mean about Shara! Her story was the most devastating for me personally concerning how things were in book one. I promise she was not like that at all in Chains of Gwyndorr and was so much stronger resisting the pull of the Dusk Dreamer. I was extremely bummed by her decisions in this one and hope that she will have a story of redemption in book three. (My heart will be heartbroken if she doesn't. Haha!)

    3. That is something to hope for 🤗

  2. Hi Keturah! I'm so sorry for not seeing your review sooner (a bad cold with fevers is getting all sick in my family), but I so glad you enjoyed the book! :D I really loved the assassins as well. Was a really unique part of the story.

    Thank you so much for participating in the tour, Keturah! :)
