Book Review: The Wizard Heir by Cinda Williams Chima(The Heir Chronicles #2)

Title: The Wizard Heir
Author: Cinda Williams Chima
Publisher: Hyperion
Rating: 5/5

Sixteen-year-old Seph McCauley has spent the past three years getting kicked out of one exclusive private school after another. Unfortunately it’s not his attitude that’s the problem. It’s the trail of magical accidents—lately, disasters—that follow in his wake. Seph is a wizard, orphaned and untrained—and now that the only person who could protect him has died, his powers are escalating out of control.
After causing a tragic fire at an after-hours party, Seph is sent to the Havens, a secluded boys’ school on the coast of Maine. At first, it seems like the answer to his prayers. Gregory Leicester, the headmaster, promises to train Seph in magic and initiate him into his mysterious order of wizards. But Seph's enthusiasm dampens quickly when he learns that training comes at a steep cost, and that Leicester plans to use his students' powers to serve his own mysterious agenda.
In this companion novel to the exciting fantasy The Warrior Heir, everyone's got a secret to keep: Jason Haley, a fellow student who’s been warned to keep away from Seph; the enchanter Linda Downey, who knew his parents; the rogue wizard Leander Hastings, and the warriors Jack Swift and Ellen Stephenson. This wizard war is one that Seph may not have the strength to survive.


This book is AMAZING. I would read it over, and over, and over again. I stayed up all night  to finish this book. I cant wait to read the next book to see what happens with Seph. The characters in the book are so interesting. You'll be hooked to the book after you read the first sentence. If you love books about wizards this book will have you hooked. The book puts some of everything in it.

The plot of the book can get kind of confusing. Plus the characters  you have to go back and say "wait who is that" . The book also left some questions on my mind. I love the writer added some twist and surprises in the book. It kept me on the edge of my seat to the very end of the book.

Overall I would give this book a 5/5.  It gave me everything I like in a book and very rarely bored me. From beginning to end it is a great book. I would recommend it to everyone to pick up . You will not be disappointed!
