Hopefully by the end of 2016, my TBR mountain will be only a foothill.
This week I'm turning the spotlight on The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima. I bought this book on November 11, 2009 along with the next two books in the Heir series.
Before he knew about the Roses, 16-year-old Jack lived an unremarkable life in the small Ohio town of Trinity. Only the medicine he has to take daily and the thick scar above his heart set him apart from the other high-schoolers. Then one day Jack skips his medicine. Suddenly, he is stronger, fiercer, and more confident than ever before. And it feels great-until he loses control of his own strength and nearly kills another player during soccer team tryouts.I also have a some of the books in the Seven Realms series. And I recently added her newest - Flamecaster - to my review stack.
Soon, Jack learns the startling truth about himself: He is Weirlind; part of an underground society of magical people who live among us. At the head of this magical society sit the feuding houses of the Red Rose and the White Rose, whose power is determined by playing The Game-a magical tournament in which each house sponsors a warrior to fight to the death. The winning house rules the Weir.
As if his bizarre magical heritage isn't enough, Jack finds out that he's not just another member of Weirlind-he's one of the last of the warriors-at a time when both houses are scouting for a player.
Have you read this series? Should I move this series higher on the reading stack?
