Format: Paperback
We start our story meeting Reggie, a young adult who has had a sad start. She has lost her father and her mother has turned to drink from the loss. She is a social outcast at the best of times, so when a biology lesson results in the unexpected reanimation of a frog at her hand, she finds herself a laughing stock and utterly confused with her ability. That’s not the only issue that Reggie is dealing with, visited by a man named Rhys in her dreams she learns that her father was not all he has seemed. Rhys comes to her dreams from “the Other” (our world is “the Real”) and revelations that her father was from magic leads Reggie to discover she inherited that magical gift. Reggie's "gift" very soon becomes her curse when she is told she must uproot her life to come to the other for protection as there are those that would seek to harm her for what she is. Someone is coming to protect her in her journey

Asher works as a slave for Andrius, ruler of the other, he is tasked to recover Reggie before Rhys, and return to the Other under a false pretence. When Reggie and Asher meet, they connect immediately and trust is given freely. Their journey is fraught with danger and twists in allegiance, can the foe become the friend? What is Reggie and why is she so important?

In the round this was a very enjoyable read, all the main characters are instantly likeable and relatable in their flaws. Even Reggie’s mother can’t be seen as bad for turning to drink, she is clearly broken over the loss of Reggie’s father, Sebastian. The world of the Other has some spectacular scenery and creations which is why I love reading fantasy so much!

The Story:
When seventeen-year-old Reggie brings a dead frog back to life and is visited by a mysterious man in a series of very realistic dreams, she is on the precipice of learning about a whole other magical world, a whole other side to herself, and about an entirely new destiny mapped out for her.

The Characters:
One of the great things about The Other Inheritance is Reggie’s intelligence and confidence. She questions why things are happening to her and the reasons behind them. She is not content to be led around with blinders on. In saying that, I found myself wishing she was more selfish. There are a couple of instances where Reggie immediately forgave people who had betrayed and misled her, and I found myself questioning the believability of her response—regardless of the fact forgiveness is a great quality.
The complexities and revelations surrounding the antagonist were intriguing. Other notable characters are a loyal best friend, John, and of course the ‘at moral war with himself’ Asher.

The World:
The concept of a parallel world in which magic exists is clearly and simply explained. Upon entering into the Other, the differences between the Other and the Real (Earth) are well depicted. The cultures and intricacies of this fresh fantasy world are a pleasure to discover and hold the readers’ attention from the moment Reggie crosses through the barrier. The Author has done a wonderful job in bringing the Other to life.

The Readability
Medium-to-fast pace throughout. Professionally edited with an easy-to-read and vivid writing style. Rebecca Jaycox has put a lot of effort into the plausibility of this story. If Reggie is being misled, there is a perfectly good reason why she has believed the deception.

5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed reading this book. 1 April 2017
By Clara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this. I'm not a fan of series books but will read a trilogy, and I am looking forward to the next book. The book moved pretty fast. Lots of action, I thought the story brought the characters together in a interesting way. A new world, elfs, changelings, mages good and bad. The relationship between Reggie and Asher developed pretty fast I knew they would end up together but not as fast as it did. I did liked the story and hope the next book moves them forward.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read 10 Jun. 2015
By Dawn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I generally do not read this genre of books, but found this one fascinating. Rebecca Jaycox writes the characters well and helps us understand the agonizing pain that Reggie, a confused teenager with an alcoholic mother, a dead father and a sudden realization that there is more to her own story than she realizes, is dealing with. The story takes the reader on one adventure after another and I felt like I was in nearly every type of scenario from The Wizard of Oz to Harry Potter to Star Wars to Indiana Jones. I couldn't choose just one because there is such a wonderful mixture of all of them. I would have absolutely given this a five star rating but I didn't get quite the closure I was looking for. I believe that is because there will be a sequel and I look forward to reading that when it comes out. Job well done, Ms. Jaycox!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely one of the better YA Female protagonists I've read 12 April 2017
By Danny B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am always a sucker for stories with alternate worlds and mysterious heroes, but it wasn't Asher who caught my attention in this story, it was Reggie.

Without giving too much away, the book throws us right into the deep end with a conversation between the two characters. Reggie has a power and Asher knows about it, and Reggie doesn't really know who this guy is. And neither do we. By the end everyone had believable motivations and were mostly likable, but the journey for Reggie being someone who just wants to know what's going on to someone comfortable with herself is very well done. My favorite aspect of her characters though, what I found most endearing, was her level of trust in the people around her. I personally wouldn't have trusted any of these people, and I certainly wouldn't have been down to explore exciting new opportunities with a weird biker guy who doesn't even introduce himself at first. But for Reggie, all of her decisions make sense given her character, and I enjoyed seeing where she went with it.

The ending is a bit of cliffhanger but given that the second book is already available this isn't something to worry about.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a new YA series 22 April 2017

I gave this series a go and ended up pre-ordering the second book as soon as I finished this one. It's one thing for a teenager to feel like she doesn't fit in. It's another when she accidentally brings a dead animal back to life in class because she doesn't know quite how special she is. This YA fantasy was entertaining, making me empathize with characters I didn't expect to, and keeping me on my toes with the action. Definitely check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A definite must-read ! 22 Aug. 2015
By Manuelle Boutrit-Buchard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For the first time in my life this summer, at 45 years of age, I enjoyed reading a piece of YA literature and I enjoyed reading fantasy. Not only did I enjoy it, I was actually hooked by The Other Inheritance, which I devoured in only three days. Under Rebecca Jaycox's graphic writing, the characters pop into life and you really want to follow their journey from one world to "the Other". What fascinated me as a student of foreign languages and foreign cultures is the skilful, often tongue-in-cheek play with echoes and discrepancies between the two universes. This wavering between sameness and utter difference is what you experience whenever you leave your own usual set of references to immerse yourself in a new culture with its own baffling new codes. Under the life-threatening circumstances facing her in the Other, will Reggie manage to close the gap between the two worlds? That's what you're looking forward to finding out and that's what makes you keep asking for more !
