I recommend the Heir series to anyone interested in a mix of modern story lines with magical elements. Chima's takes the reader into the world of teenage angst with well developed plots and characters- not an easy task!
It is comparable to Brandon Mull's work but geared toward a more mature adolescent audience.
Ramirez does a good job with intonation and brings the characters to life with his reading. He needs to mature his breathing skills as the narration suffers from audible breathing and swallowing - especially during the fight scenes. I started to dread the extra noise and it took a lot away from enjoying some fantastic scenes.
I read adolescent science fiction because I enjoy the genre and to support my teaching practice. This series is an excellent way to teach literature, geography, history and spark the imagination in a secondary setting.
fallen in love w/ the author and narrator- could not stop listening to this book. If you like mystery, fantasy, suspense and fun- this series will delight.
