Overview

Three boys, three talismans, one destiny. In this page-turning trilogy, Cinda Williams Chima explores what it means to be different, what's worth fighting for, and what's worth dying for

THE WARRIOR HEIR

Jack lives an unremarkable life in Trinity, Ohio. Only his daily medicine and the thick scar above his heart set him apart from other teenagers at his high school. Until one day, Jack skips his medicine and finds himself stronger, fiercer, and more confident than ever before. He feels incredible until he nearly kills another player on the soccer field.

Soon, Jack learns the startling truth: he is Weirlind, part of a magical underground society of wizards, warriors, and enchantors. Weir's mighty, feuding houses of the Red Rose and the White Rose determine power through The Game, a modern-day gladiator battle in which warriors from each house fight to the death. The winning house rules the Weir. But Jack finds out that he's not just another member of Weirlind-he's one of the last warriors-and both houses are scouting for a player.

THE WIZARD HEIR


Sixteen-year-old Seph McCauley has spent the past three years getting kicked out of one exclusive private school after another. Unfortunately it's not his attitude that's the problem. It's the trail of magical accidents-lately, disasters-that follow in his wake. Seph is a wizard, orphaned and untrained--and now that the only person who could protect him has died, his powers are escalating out of control.

At the Havens, a secluded boys' school in Maine, Seph meets headmaster Gregory Leicester, who promises to initiate him into his order of wizards. But Seph soon learns that training comes at a steep cost, and that Leicester plans to use his students' powers to serve his own malicious agenda. This wizard war is one that Seph may not have the strength to survive.

THE DRAGON HEIR

The covenant that was meant to keep the wizard wars at bay has been stolen, and Trinity must prepare for attack. Jason Haley finds himself excluded from the action until he finds the Dragonheart. The opal stone seems to sing to his very soul, but Trinity's guardians seize it after they realize its powers. Madison Moss feels the beating heart of the opal, too. The desire for it surges through her, but Maddie also has a secret. Ever since absorbing the magical blow that was meant to kill Seph, she's been leaking dark powers. Trinity's enemies believe they can use her to get to the Dragonheart and they'll use anyone she cares about to make her steal the stone for them.

Moral compasses spin out of control as a final battle storms through what was once a sanctuary for the gifted. With so much to lose, what will Jason and Maddie be willing to fight for -- and what will they sacrifice?

    Enjoyable but...

    I really enjoyed this series but I felt there were a lot of... I suppose loose ends.

    The first book completely drew me in; I stayed up all night to read it. Unfortunately, the ending was bizarre and not nearly as well developed as the rest of the story. It almost felt like a cop out the way it ended.

    For me, the second book was especially angst ridden. It started off good but the time he spent at the the school just dragged and dragged. Once he got out, things picked up but then went back down again at the end. Not as vague an ending as the first book but I would have liked a bit more development.

    The third book had all the makings of something absolutely extraordinary, however, I personally felt that the author spent a lot of time describing the less interesting feelings of isolation almost all the teenagers felt rather than developing some of her more interesting plot points. I also felt there were a lot of things that were brought up that were only half explained. In the end I felt that the book had the best ending of the three but that was overshadowed by the lesser amount of development in the story.

    All in all I thought the story was great and the world was enchanting. I would have loved to have had more primary characters from the lesser guilds and/or to have expounded more on the lives of those in the lesser guilds. I think it would have made for a richer narrative and put less pressure on the wizards and warriors to perform.

    The box set is far more inexpensive that buying each individual

    The box set is far more inexpensive that buying each individual book so that is a plus as for the overall story is lovely but somehow it feels as if there are missing pieces to the background. The conflict was quite interesting but the resolution felt inconclusive and somehow unsatisfying, nonetheless, I enjoy the growth and nature of the protagonist as well as the mythology with in the story.
