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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "It is great"

    I loved the story. The story captured me and had me wishing for more. The narrator did poor in places: long pauses, audiable swallowing and the like. over all great book.

    "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.

    "Fantastic story with relatable characters!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would for sure recommend this to a friend male or female, it is an amzing story that keeps you interested and wanting more!


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was good and I enjoyed the reader, but the other people commenting say that it was a bad reader didn't really give him a chance. In the beginning he does do some weird breaths and mouth noises but that's only the first chapter if that.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh for sure, I sit at a desk all day at work and between two days had it finished lol.


    Any additional comments?

    This book isn't just a teen book or "young adult" which I honestly don't even know what that covers. I'm in my early 20's and I absolutely love it and relate to each of the characters on some level.

    "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.
