    "Excellent Series"
    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.

    "Great story. Lousy reader"

    I have enjoyed reading several of Chima's books. I am TERRIBLY disappointed by the audible version, however. The reading and the directing are AWFUL. The mouth noises the reader makes (smacking, gulping, etc) suggest an amateur reader and director. The noises are so bad that my son gags and cannot listen. And the heavy breathing into the microphone is terribly distracting. Listen to Hunger Games or Percy Jackson to hear a good reader! I hope future books from this author are NOT read by this reader.
