    Booted from one exclusive school to the next since his foster mom's death three years ago, 16-year-old Seph McCauley knows he's different. But he doesn't understand why he can summon menacing ravens, freeze summer ponds, and torch all he touches. And then Seph makes the mistake of trusting his new headmaster. If you like Harry Potter, you'll love Seph McCauley.

    Would you listen to Wizard Heir again? Why?

    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!


    What other book might you compare Wizard Heir to and why?

    It is comparable to Brandon Mull's work but geared toward a more mature adolescent audience.


    What aspect of Robert Ramirez’s performance would you have changed?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.
