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.

    "Would not recommend"

    This book was not great. Although some parts were very slightly enjoyable over all not great. DO NOT READ the rest of these books they get worse over time. Sorry I️ don’t like to be mean but it’s the truth.

    "Great story, reader needs a partner (imo)"

    I loved the story and will be getting the next book.
    It is, to me, somewhat of a middle ground between Harry Potter (young, mostly PG) and The Sword of Truth series (adult, graphic R). The Warrior Heir's similarities are mostly seen in the tone/mood of those books but also the introduction of different characters that have more complex backgrounds than you initially consider. I'm sure there are many parallels that could be made but those two things jumped out at me.

    The narrator was good most of the time but I did have a few issues. I appreciate that the narrator went so far as to become the character during dialog and his male characters were enjoyable, but his attempt at doing female voices was very off putting (he was not trying to be completely feminine but he tried softening and changing his voice to be the female character and it just didn't work for me).

    I would have given this 5's across the board if there had been a woman voicing female dialog. I am sure there are many reasons why that wouldn't be feasible but that's my opinion and preference.
