The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima
By teen libApril 19, 2013
The Weir are different.
The Weir have stones that give them powers.
The Weir are wizards, warriors, soothsayers, and enchanters, all part of an underground society of magical people who live among us.
At the top of this society are two feuding houses of wizards, the most powerful of the Weir. And the house that rules the Weir is determined by “The Game,” which is a tournament in which each wizard house sponsors a warrior to fight to the death. Think gladiators and the Coliseum. Think savage medieval jousts. Think mortal combat, fighting to the death for a cause that is not your own.
And because of one moment of forgetfulness, Jack, a wizard turned warrior, is being hunted mercilessly by both houses, desperate for a warrior champion of their own.
