Perfect for fans of the Gifted Clans and Aru Shah series, this thrilling second book of the middle grade fantasy Lia Park series sees Lia and Joon on a mission to protect important magical objects—and themselves—from a mysterious enemy.

Twelve-year-old Lia Park and her best friend, Joon, are now full-time students at International Magic Academy after defeating corrupt diviner Gaya, and their first assignment is an ambitious one. The evil nine-headed monster and King of Darkness, Jihaedaegukjeok, wants to destroy the three Heavenly Heirlooms that create fire and light to plunge the world into darkness and destroy humanity. 

The heirlooms can only be destroyed if they are all together, so over time, they have been hidden carefully with magic. Except now, one of them is missing. Lia, Joon, and their classmates have been tasked with recovering the lost heirloom and bringing it to IMA for safekeeping. They expected the task to be difficult, but the number of obstacles the magic trainees run into makes Lia start to wonder if the sabotage could be coming from someone inside the school.

What I liked:
Lia Park and The Heavenly Heirlooms is the second book in a series about a young girl who is the daughter of parents who work for IMA. She has been raised to one day attend the magic school for spies, and in this book, she attends with her best friend, Yoon. The author immerses you with essential details about how the school works and the location of schoolhouses where the kids live while at the school, and for the first time, Lia will be sharing a room.
The story is unique in that Lia Park is Korean, and throughout the book, you see a nod in language, the types of skills Lia learns at the school, and how she interacts with the world around her. Lia Park is determined to do her best at the school, but soon she discovers that something is drastically wrong with her magic and, along with her team Air Check, they will face so much more than she did in the first book. The stakes are high, and the evil is interesting; I mean, I wouldn't want to face a nine-headed monster knowing it could end the world if I fail.
Final Verdict:
For any reader who loved Harry Potter, Gifted Clans, or the Aru Shah series, Lia Park and The Heavenly Heirlooms should be your next read. Lia and her friends will be on a mission to find magical objects, battle a nine-headed monster, and someone inside her group may be behind this new monster.
