Who should read the The Heir Chronicles? — World of Weir Blog Tour + Giveaway

WorldofWeirTour_Week2

We’ve been hearing amazing things about Cinda Williams Chima and her books for years. So of course, when Disney*Hyperion reached out for this ah-mazing tour, we just had to say yes! The concept of The Heir Chronicles is fun, and fantasy—my favorite genre. I devoured THE WARRIOR HEIR (book one in the five-book series) earlier this week, and I’ll be answering the following question:

Who should read The Heir Chronicles?

TheHeirChronicles

In short, anyone who loves fantasy. But I’m going to be much more specific than that! If you’ve ever read and enjoyed Alice in Wonderland, Fight for Freedom, and The Hound of Rowan then you definitely have to read The Heir Chronicles. Now, what could those books have anything to do with Cinda’s series? Well, let me explain.

I love Alice in Wonderland. I mean, who doesn’t? And all throughout THE WARRIOR HEIR, with their two groups—The Red Roses and The White Roses, all I could think about was… Alice in Wonderland. You know, red and white.

I know, that’s the tiniest comparison in the history of comparison but still, every time I read “rose” I thought about that.

Comparison #2

Fight for Freedom. Being one of the most interesting middle-grade gladiator books I’ve ever read, I couldn’t help but notice how similar THE WARRIOR HEIR is to this.

THE WARRIOR HEIR is about a boy named Jack who learns he’s being hunted to play in the Game, which will determine which house (Red Rose or White Rose) has more power. The Wizards find Warriors and pitch them against each other—a lot like gladiators.

Comparison #3

The Hound of Rowan. AKA, one of my favorite books of all time. The magic in THE WARRIOR HEIR was very reminiscent of that in The Hound of Rowan. I also can’t help but think that Max, the main character in The Hound of Rowan, and Jack, the main character in THE WARRIOR HEIR, were very much alike.

There you have it! Though those are some awesome comparisons, they also cater to only a handful of people, because they’re not well-read books. So if you’re a fan of fantasy and adventure set in our world, then you really need to pick up The Heir Chronicles.

About the Sorcerer Heir

 

The can’t-miss finale to the beloved and bestselling Heir Chronicles series.

The delicate peace between Wizards and the underguilds (Warriors, Seers, Enchanters, and Sorcerers) still holds by the thinnest of threads, but powerful forces inside and outside the guilds threaten to sever it completely.

Old friends and foes return as new threats arise in this stunning and revelatory conclusion to the beloved and bestselling Heir Chronicles series.

The Sorcerer Heir is a self-contained story, accessible to readers just discovering the Heir series, but loyal fans will be rewarded by visits from characters they love (and love to hate) from the earlier installments.

Readers will be glued to their seats through riveting fight scenes, deadly political machinations, burgeoning romance, and the unfolding intrigues of a contemporary magical world.

    I have not read this series, I was at a book signing where Cinda was there and she read part of the 4th book (I think) and I was curious about the series then, but still never got around to reading it. Thank you Asma and Disney-Hyperion for the review and giveaway.

    I haven’t read any of the series yet. I much rather wait until the series is finished and then read each of the books back-to-back instead of waiting a year or more between books.
