This powerful prequel to the Andy Smithson novels, titled Power of the Heir's Passion by L.R.W. Lee, begins with Imogenia, Princess of the land of Oomaldee, being escorted to the Afterlife by two Crossover Collectors. Imogenia had just been murdered by her brother, Kaysan, who wants to be the sole heir to the throne. While waiting in the Afterlife hall, Imogenia tries hard to devise a plan to avenge her own death. She is shortly joined by her parents, King Hercalon IV and Queen Acelin, who’d died of a broken heart, leaving Kaysan to rule the land under the title of ‘King Hercalon V.’ Imogenia’s parents agree to her plan to curse the land of Oomaldee during Kaysan’s rule, causing havoc to the people until Kaysan learns his lesson. Kaysan is also made immortal so he does not die before his lesson has been learned.

Although short in length, the Andy Smithson prequel Power of the Heir's Passion by L.R.W. Lee covers quite a bit of ground, laying the foundation for the Andy Smithson series. Those who have not yet read the series are left wondering what will happen once the prequel ends. Will the curse be removed? Will Kaysan finally feel remorse for murdering his sister and show an outpouring of grief? With my curiosity well and truly piqued, I am certainly inspired to want to read more from this talented author, L.R.W. Lee, and find out for myself what lies ahead.
