Review: SQUAWK! SQUAWK! In An Inheritance of Ashes by Leah Bobet, it's 6 months after a violent war to kill an evil, dark god; but weeks after the war was won, the older sister Marthe, and the younger sister, Hallie, are both struggling hard to maintain their family, they wait for Marthe's husband to help them. They hire a veteran to help manage the farm. Meanwhile, strange, sometimes dangerous things happen. Birds with spider eyes circle the fields, ghostly messages are made in the lake, every phantom marching south to fight appears at her front gate.
An Inheritance of Ashes is recommended for kids in middle school years because this book contains some language, and contains vocabulary words for older children. I think this book was written to entertain an audience who enjoys mystery, thrillers, some action, and lots of details. I do think adults can enjoy this book too because this book is not childish, it really makes you nervous at some parts because you won't always be able to even guess what might happen and it can sometimes contain things for older audiences. This book is recommended for readers 12 and up, and for people who like complex. This is a splendid book for young adult readers.
