Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greta | 2/9/2014

    " Enjoyable--it was easy to guess the plot, but was still a delightful read. I have enjoyed everything I have read thus far from this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Guillermo | 2/8/2014

    " An entertained book, I liked it even when I didn't not enjoyed that much the final resolution. Anyway, it's good enough to recommend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam | 2/3/2014

    " The idea of wizards and warriors and other clans is new and yet used, but either way, The Warrior Heir is an interesting look on magic and how it could effect the world. It was interesting how non-magical (Anaweir, if you read the book) don't know about the magical guilds, even if they are close relatives of Weir (Wizards, Sorcerers, Enchanters...). This novel breathes new life into the fantasy genre, and does not in any way make it seem as if magic is overused. Because although the book seems similar to say Harry Potter, there are enough differences to make it seem original. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany | 2/2/2014

    " Okay, slow in the beginning but once you got to the meat of the novel, it was irresistible to put down. I won't say it was amazing, but I really liked it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Umu | 2/1/2014

    " I thought this book was great over all. The scenes and action are memerble, and i love the story line. The begginning was quite boring for me, but as i read it, it became more exciting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 1/28/2014

    " The Warrior Heir has a unique style of writing but is gripping and leaves a great opportunity for a sequel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tori | 1/23/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valeriecluff Cluff | 1/20/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben Bellamy | 12/7/2013

    " I love the world and the guilds that the Author has illustrated. The backstabbing and conspiracies you never know what to expect. I will read the rest of the trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyx | 11/29/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 9/20/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick | 6/23/2013

    " This was a good book. The story was a bit slow in some places but when it gets to the points of battle it picks up a bit. It's more of a what would happen if this were true type story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Xandy *Mako's Scarf* | 3/12/2013

    " Oh my gosh, superb! So, I must admit, I have had this book on my shelf for about four years and haven't decided to read it until a couple days ago. Man do I wish I started sooner! The writing is fantastic and the story line riveting! The characters are fantastic! I need to second one... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennier | 2/12/2013

    " a great book a good way to start the triolgey "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James Kramer | 8/15/2012

    " I read this on my own recommendation from reading her other trilogy. This one seemed much more YA, and didn't draw me in as she did before. Bought the whole trilogy as a package, might give the second a try. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen Taylor | 5/24/2012

    " An interesting concept of class structure and magic. A good read for any fan of science fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberlibri | 7/19/2011

    " I was a little confused at first. I thought I might have stumbled into a second part of an ongoing series but then chima explained anaweir and other terms used frequently in the first few chapters. Good book, strong plot, great characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 6/21/2011

    " I feel like a huge nerd but I really like this book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Traci | 5/28/2011

    " This book was too similiar to too many other young adult books I have read. Too predictable. Too forgettable. I might however recommend it to young male readers who are tired of the stronger female presence in young adult fantasy today. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 5/26/2011

    " I...couldn't finish it. I wish I could, but it just didn't hold me. It had so much potential. I really hate not finishing books, but I couldn't muster the energy to read something that bored me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 5/26/2011

    " I never finished it and I don't think I intend to. But I remember I really liked the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catharine | 5/21/2011

    " I enjoyed this book and the characters, but it was more violent than I usually like. I liked the magic though and the group of friends. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 R | 5/17/2011

    " I think this book is absolutely amazing. The author gives great visuals with a new, creative story line. The dialog is accurate for the age, and the book is a page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kami | 5/16/2011

    " Very enjoyable. After two of my students read the trilogy and loved it, I just had to pick it up. I like the characters and it has a very interesting plot. I've started the next book in this trilogy, and my students say that the second and third books are better than the first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 5/15/2011

    " Having read the second book first, this put it in perspective and explained a lot.Shows the bond that was formed amongst all the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 5/7/2011

    " Fun young adult fantasy. Nothing spectacular about it, but I liked it enough to want to read the others she has written. "
