The Warrior Heir Book Review

Time for another book review!! Here we go:

Title: The Warrior Heir
Author: Cinda William Chima
Genre: YA Fantasy, Action-Adventure


Summary: 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.

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 ruling 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. Jack's performance on the soccer field has alerted the entire magical community to the fact that he's in Trinity. And until one of the houses is declared Jack's official sponsor, they'll stop at nothing to get Jack to fight for them.

Review: This was a very good book! The action in this novel was perfectly paced. It didn't give anything away too fast but it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the story. I loved how deep the supporting characters were! Jack's teacher, Mr. Hastings was definitely a favorite of mine. He had his own secrets and kept the mystery up throughout the book.

Jack's two best friends, Will and Fitch were the two exceptions I think. I kind of kept confusing them because they were a lot alike.

The romantic tension was really nicely written and overall, this is absolutely a story worth reading. I loved it! Definitely going to read the next books in this series!

My Rating: Four stars!


Go check it out! Happy reading :)
