Reviewed by Mathew, Age 12

With a kind of a war cry, he wrenched himself away from the wizards and flung himself backward onto the pavement, landing painfully on his bound arms, scraping his hands along the rough concrete. In the same instant, something shrieked Ö something that carried the scent of fireworks and ozone.

It all started when Jack forgot to take his heart medicine. Instead of going home to get it and serving a detention after school, Jack decides just to not worry about it so he can attend soccer practice after school and have a chance to make the team.  During the day, he feels somewhat better, stronger and fiercer.  Unfortunately, he almost kills his enemy Lobeck during soccer tryouts that same afternoon.   Brushing it off, he decides it was nothing.  Or was it? What will happen to Jack?

Cinda Williams Chima wrote The Warrior Heir.  I feel that she is an extremely good author with lots of interesting names for things that arenít even real. Other than this book, she has so far written one other modern fantasy novel, The Wizard Heir.  She now lives in Ohio with her husband and two sons, and works at the University of Akron, where she once graduated.

I would recommend this book for anyone who is a fairly good reader because of some of the phrases it uses to describe certain magical objects.  I enjoyed reading this book so much that I canít express it on paper.  After finally reading it about 4 times, I finally sat down to write this review.  One reason that I really enjoyed reading this book is because it was very descriptive, and gave the reader an extremely clear picture of what the setting looked like in the book.

I rate The Warrior Heir 6 out of 5 stars!!
