Heir Apparent is a science fiction/fantasy novel by young-adult fiction author Vivian Vande Velde, about a girl who becomes trapped inside a looping virtual reality role-playing game.

The same girl appeared as a secondary character in User Unfriendly, Vande Velde's earlier book about a game from the same fictional company, Rasmussem, Inc. But Vande Velde does not consider Heir Apparent a sequel to User Unfriendly, despite their taking place in the same universe, and she notes that the two books can be read in either order.

Additionally, Vande Velde's book Magic Can Be Murder features an inn called the Witch's Stew, the name of a game mentioned in Heir Apparent.Vivian Vande Velde. Magic Can Be Murder. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2000, p. 42.

Vande Velde says, "Heir Apparent was a lot of fun to write because it's about a girl caught in a virtual-reality-type game. Even though Giannine finds herself in a vaguely medieval world, I didn't have to worry about historical accuracy. I also was able to keep throwing all sorts of things at her -- a dragon, an army of ghosts, and a poetry-loving/head-chopping statue.""Writing magic Rochester author Vivian Vande Velde talks about her books." The Buffalo News, Nov. 16, 2005.
