~Review: The Overlord's Heir (Overlord #2) by Michelle Howard~

With his enemy defeated and order re-established, Vaan plans to enjoy his life with his Raasa mate. Mikayla’s upcoming birth makes his heart sing with joy. 

Mikayla prepares for the birth of her first youngling with her Overlord mate. This should be a happy time but Vaan must return to Kaban and reassure his people that he yet lives. 

There are still those not pleased at the turn of events with Thenl’s downfall and seek to destroy what the Overlord has built. Will Vaan and Mikayla finally be able to relax or will trouble continue to follow them?

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

It was a time of peace and rejoicing for Overlord Vaan Galip.  The only worry he really felt was the concern for his love, his mate Mikayla and their unborn youngling.  They may live on the same planet, but are different species and the strain that carrying his youngling has put on her makes him uneasy.  As Overlord his responsibilities to his people as well as his mate lay heavy on his shoulders.  Vaan cannot help but feel that something is wrong even though Mikayla says everything is alright.  When he receives another urgent message from his brother telling that he must come back and show his people that he lives again, Vaan is torn between duty and love.

Mikayla is the leader of her house and is respected by her people.  She cares for her people and is an exceptional leader.  Mikayla loves her mate and their unborn youngling.  Having Vaan with her is the most important thing as her birthing time approaches.  Vaan tells her that he must go and help his brother, but will return before her time.  He is leaving a contingency of Warlords with her for her protection and promises to return in four days.

Will Vaan return in time for the birth of his youngling?  Has the evil really been eradicated or will it rear its ugly head again? This book has a Star Wars feel with the diverse creatures and world that the author brings to life.
