In Heir of Zion, Michael has been left behind in Zion by his family. Although he has the help and support of David’s parents, Michael feels lost and alone. He struggles with missing his family and not understanding why they left in the first place. What is so wrong with Zion? Hadn’t they been as happy as he had been? What made them leave? As Michael finds out a secret that has been kept from him for all his life, things begin to change for him. He starts to see for himself the issues in Zion. But how can he fix them? Can he convince the Elders to change their ways? And most of all, can he bring his family back home where they belong?

Heir of Zion by Brittany Nicole Lewis is the second in the Zion series. These books are not stand-alone stories and should be read in order. At first, I was thinking Zion was a bad place, a cult. And maybe from the dictionary definition, it is, but Zion is so much more than that. It is not a place where the elders try to harm their people. And maybe they do things that are not socially accepted or politically correct, but the hierarchy in this devout group seems to only have the best for their people in mind. Once again, the story is not what I expected it to be, but it was enjoyable. Since the author has left me with a cliffhanger, I am anxious to see what she has in store for the next book. Kudos, Brittany Nicole Lewis, for a job well done.
