Min studied the cards, pushed her glasses down on her nose, and studied them some more. Madison leaned forward, squinting down at them. The center card in each row was a dragon with snaky eyes and a long, twisting tail, brilliant with color, glittering with gilt. Abruptly, Min scooped them up and handed them back to Madison. Mystified, Madison shuffled and spread them. Moved them about with the tips of her fingers.

Cinda Williams Chima made her debut as an author with the young adult fantasy,The Warrior Heir,followed byThe Wizard Heir and the Dragon Heir. She began writing romance novels in middle school, which were often confiscated by her English teacher. Cinda is a graduate of the University of Akron and Case Western Reserve University. The second book was just as good, if not better than the first, the Wizard Heir. Unable to wait for The Dragon Heir to come out in paperback, I bought the hardback. Like the first 2 books I was hooked from page one. This story finds Seph hotter than ever, literally.

The Dragon Heir book. I have read both of Cinda Williams Chima’s series and while I prefer The Seven Realms Series this one is also a solid fantasy series. The characters are full of flaws, making good decisions and bad. Sometimes I think the pacing of the story tends to drag a bit throughout and then all the action ends up being at the end. Series : The Heir Chronicles Published : April 2nd 2006. Only the medicine he has to take daily and the thick scar above his heart set him apart from the other high schoolers. Then one day Jack skips his medicine. Suddenly, he is stronger, fiercer, and more confident than ever before. And it feels great - until he loses control of his own strength and nearly kills another player during soccer team tryouts.

Main The The Dragon Heir. Chima Cinda Williams.

Cinda Williams Chima (2011). About book: Over long build up to a somewhat muddled and boring battle mar this book. It felt like an unnecessary addendum to The Wizard Heir. I'm of course going to go read Dead To Me (Heir Chronicles . - a short PDF download) right now then The Enchanter Heir because I'm unable to leave a story unfinished. Then on to The Sorcerer Heir to wrap things up. If the pattern I've found in Chima's books follows, I'm probably going to like Enchanter more. In the Dragon Heir, a lot happens that can simply not be explained except for the.

Jessamine Longbranch, the famous London heart surgeon, had swept in from overseas to steal him from the jaws of death. She still visited the States once or twice a year, and would give Jack a checkup. Her bedside manner left a lot to be desired. He'd strip to the waist and she'd do a brief physical, run her hands over the muscles in his arms and legs and chest, listen to his heart with an unusual cone-shaped stethoscope, check his height and weight and blood pressure, and proclaim him healthy

The covenant that was meant to keep the wizard wars at bay has been stolen, and Trinity must prepare for attack. Everyone is doing their part -- Seph is monitoring the Weirwalls; Jack and Ellen are training their ghostly army; even Anaweir Will and Fitch are setting booby traps around the town's perimeter. But to Jason Haley, it seems like everyone wants to keep him out of the action. He may not be the most powerful wizard in Trinity, but he's prepared to fight for his friends. When Jason finds a powerful talisman --a huge opal called the Dragonheart--buried in a cave, his role takes on new importance. The stone seems to sing to Jason's very soul -- showing him that he is meant for more than anyone guessed. Trinity's guardians take the stone away after they realize that it may be a weapon powerful enough to save them all. Without any significant power of his own, and now without the stone, what can Jason possibly do to help the people he cares about -- and to prove his mettle?Madison Moss can feel the beating heart of the opal, too. The desire for it surges through her, drawing her to it. But Maddie has other things besides the Dragonheart on her mind. She has a secret. Ever since absorbing the magical blow that was meant to kill Seph, she's been leaking dark powers. Although Maddie herself is immune to magic, what would her friends think if they knew what kind of evil lay within her? Trinity's enemies are as enthusiastic about her powers as she is frightened. They think they can use her to get to the Dragonheart -- and they'll use anyone Maddie cares about to make her steal the stone for them. Moral compasses spin out of control as a final battle storms through what was once a sanctuary for the gifted. With so much to lose, what will Jason and Maddie be willing to fight for -- and what will they sacrifice? Every man is for himself in this thrilling conclusion to the Heir trilogy.

I love Mercedes
This series has been really captivating, and this book was a great addition to it overall. There were a few glaring problems. Some things seem to happen that the author doesn't explain. Things just kind of put there to keep the story going. For starters, it makes zero sense that Hastings and Linda abandon their teenage son and his teenage friends to fight the magical Armageddon while they live it up in the castle they over took. Especially since the last book they were both willing to die for Seph, now they could care less? The character Maddie was really unlikable, and just became more so near the end. The idea that she would kill her love, all her friends, let the town die, all because the guy is holding her family hostage. Even tho she knows giving him what he wants will get double crossed. That whole scenario of the one man army of Maddie was bad. I understand what the author was going for , but ...bad. Just bad. I mean she lived on this mountain her whole life, couldn't she have even looked in obvious places like an old coal furnace? And then the end of Barber. Maddie suddenly is the most powerful magical person in the universe , the build up of the power of the dragon stone, yet she is completely useless to use it? The only change is sometimes she sparkles in the sun??? So Grace accidentally saves them all because she is an ellictor? How did the reason lady come back to take the 2 wizard stones after she abdicated power to Maddie and left? If it was Maddie who did it, how can she not know how to do ANYTHING? I think the author had parts of this book written in her head, and just made everything else fit.
Very good Fantacy series. Great for teens and adults. Not as suitable for kids at certain parts of the series but not graphic. Harry Potter fans would like it. Hobbit Lord of the Rings fans and Narnia fans would probably like it. Most Fantacy fans would like it. Many drama fans would like it..

Has good humerus Parts as well. Also a great adventure tail.
You can tell that the series was originally written as a trilogy. Books 4 and 5 are glommed on as an afterthought. In the fashion of Harry Potter, Twilight, and Hunger Games, books 4 and 5 are actually a single story that are divided into two parts.

The worst part is that one of the main new "features" (Zombies) is left as an unfinished thread at the end of the book in case she wants to come back and write more books. For the Zombies / Shades to play such a pivotal role in these books and then to not wrap up that storyline at the end felt very incomplete and dissatisfying.

Do yourself a favor, stop at book 3.
I have read all of the Heir chronicles. I just purchased this one on amazon because it was cheaper then ibooks at the time. I love everything to do with Cinda Williams Chima's books. Great author. However you can read some similarities to the Seven Realms series, which I highly suggest reading first because they are just awesome, but it really doesn't matter its just personal preference. It is a good story line, just like I said was hoping for a bit more originality. It wasn't a huge impact, just noticeable, so do not let it deter you from reading a great series.

Writing was average, characters were good, but all in all, not satisfied. When riding for younger audiences (or any age group really but more important a point for younger), I think it is important to strive for high goals and morals for the heroes. This was very emo, and in shades of grey. Now I love some dark and deep stories, but when the hero's are killing and doing the excuse of "I had to kill him/her", I find that a lame excuse and a poor example. Not really hero's anymore but just slightly better than the bad guys.

I did like the characters, their were fun parts, interesting romance stories, plot twists, and a really innovative magic system/class which was outside the box. Something hard to do with so many fantasy plots out there.

I chose 5 stars because this is probably my favorite book in the series so far. (I've only read the first three so far) I love all the surprises that happened and the extra parts of the story that other characters told besides Jason and Maddie. I think my favorite male character is Seph and my favorite female character is Maddie. What I didn't like is well I can't say that or it would a spoiler. If you read this I would suggest all the other books in this series.
When I first read The Warrior Heir I have to say I was more then impressed. I enjoyed the book and fell in love with all the characters. The second book was just as good, if not better than the first, the Wizard Heir. Unable to wait for The Dragon Heir to come out in paperback, I bought the hardback. Like the first 2 books I was hooked from page one. This story finds Seph hotter than ever, literally. Leesha is back and once again stirring things up. Jason has alot of the spotlight in this book as well as Maddie. The love between the characters is obovious in this book. However, there is death of a main character.

Over all this is a real page turner, like the first 2 books. The ending felt a bit rushed and fast. And I was disappointed to know what came about with Jack and Ellen. Do they live happily ever after raising little warrior babies??? Being the 2 characters that introduced me to this series, some closure would have been nice.

The quick ending aside, this is an excellent book for all ages and a must read again. I hope this author writes more, I look forward to more of her work.
This series has been interesting - moves and is well written
