    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.

    Do you think Wizard Heir needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It is part of a series, so it has loose ends to be tied up

    Legendary science fiction author Orson Scott Card calls Brandon Sanderson a writer to watch, and Publishers Weekly says his debut is "outstanding." Once the godlike rulers of the capital of Arelon, the inhabitans of Elantris have been imprisoned within themselves, unable to die after the city's magic failed years ago. But when a new prince falls victim to the curse, he refuses to accept his fate.

    Story

    I bought the audiobook because my paperback is has been borrowed is being passed arround at work. My brother likes this book so much that he listens the this book while he plays his video games instead of blasting rock music. Anything that accomplishes that is well worth the price. I have bought several audiobooks that I thought he would be intrested in, but this is my best success.

    Afraid of waking the sleeping dragon of Raven's Ghyll, wizards have for centuries avoided waging war among themselves. But everything changes when someone steals the legendary Dragonheart, a magnificent opal pulsating with unspeakable power. This magical tour de force leaves listeners breathless - and clamoring for more.

    Story

    I enjoyed the first 2 books so much I bought this one in hard back as well as audio. Seph is my favorite character and I was excited to read about his happy ending.

    I was dissapointed, I thought that the author went too far in creating a desperate situation. Why would all the bad guys from all over the world come to wage war on the town, yet all the good guys think that it is not worth their time? What happened to all of the dragon's vast network? Why was there no mention of Peter or the other wizards who might be willing to help out? Because if the situation was not so desperate, Seph would not have to do stupid things to hold the sanctuary. I'd say 400 wizards against 5 children and an old man is desperate enough to give them some backup.

    If purpose of this book was to tie together all the loose ends, it failed. It felt like it was thrown together at the last minute then sent to the printers without a decent editing job. It was not the worst I ever read, but there were holes in the plot, and the confict was not resolved to my satisfaction. Wizard Heir was much better.
