Publisher's Summary

When 16-year-old Jack forgets to take his medicine one morning, he soon learns what the medicine is really for. It's a suppressant for his magical powers....He's a Warrior Heir. He soon finds out that his parents were waiting for his wizard to come and begin his training for a tournament to the death before they revealed the truth to him. If Jack wants to make it, he's going to need the help of friends - both magic and normal - and to learn to use his warrior powers and believe in himself.

    "Better if you read yourself"

    I enjoyed the book itself, but highly disliked the production of it. The editing is horrible. I sat down and read it and enjoyed it alot more. Don't waste your time listening to this one.

    "decent book; bad reader"

    I like the story, but I'm not a fan of the reading here. It's not a woman reading in my edition, so I don't know who this guy is named 'Suzanne'. The reader has but one tone: assertive. Women speak assertively. Lovers speak assertively. Cafeteria ladies serve assertively. Humorous lines are delivered humorlessly but- you guessed it- assertively. I agree with the other reader; you're probably better off reading on your own.

    "Annoying Narrator"

    An annoying narrator that intermittently makes a swallowing sound that's very distracting. I have to endure the whole audiobook listening to this sound. Better off reading.

    "Do yourself a favor and SKIP THIS audio book"

    I read the entire Heir trilogy written by Cinda Williams Chima &, even though it is a young adult series, I found it to be entertaining & engaging. This is a refreshing break from all of the vampire novels dominating the genre. What you have here are wizards but you'll not find a clone of Harry Potter. The character development, world building & plot pacing were so well done that this is one of those series that you'll delight in reading.

    While I believe the book rates a solid 4, the narration drops the rating to a one. Sadly I didn't heed the warnings of the other reviewers. Suzanne Toren is credited as the narrator but the reader is a male. I've listened to hundreds of audio books and this narration was the WORST ever. Dull monotone, beyond annoying LOUD swallowing and distracting sucking in of air throughout! I want the reader's name only because I will NEVER listen to another narrated by him.

    Because of the narrator, I strongly suggest you pass on this title.

    "Can't stand the breathing and mouth noises"

    Not to mention his strange afeminite way of speaking. Over doing pronunciation. Smacking lips, swallowing noises, desperate breaths in before continuing. Disappointed Can't do any more and he is the narrator through the ENTIRE series.

    "Excellent story"

    Love the story. Great characters that you draw you into the storyline. CW Chima is an awesome author. She makes her world & events believable. She makes you want to cheer & boo & get personally involved in the story unfolding before you.

    "Great story"

    The story here is great. The book overall has a great plot, which kept my attention. However the narration was was not good. Production was unprofessional. Background noise is a constant distraction. A shame, the story was good, the reading was not.

    "Loved the book, love the audiobook"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I had already read The Warrior Heir years ago, so knew I would enjoy it; Robert Ramirez did an excellent job recounting the story. All my potential complaints are nitpicks at best; occasional pauses that seemed too long, making me thing my headphones had unplugged, occasional difficulty differing between the voices of the younger characters. However, as I stated, such problems are nitpicky at best and manifested themselves at few and far between points during the narrative. Overall, wonderful book and a wonderful performance. I'll be listening to the rest of the series, you can be sure of that!
