The Dragon Heir (The Heir Chronicles #3)
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...more
Linda and Leander's brief stint in this book was annoying. Why couldn't they come back and help in the battle? Bring a few weapons from the castle's stash? Could they buy a cell phone and call to check in? The Trinity Weir people were in desperate need all the while Linda and Leander hang out in a castle and have basically no part in this book.
I was confused about the dragon/lady. Was s...more
Wizards have been engaged in a bloody battle for supremacy for generations, and they don't care who they destroy in the process. In The Warrior Heir, young Jack finds out that he has magic and that the wizards plan to use him as a pawn in their latest scheme. With help from the few wizard rebels, he manages to badly damage the wizards' power over the other magic guilds. In the second book, The Wizard Heir, the growing band of rebels continue th...more

The Dragon Heir is the third and final installment of the Heir Trilogy. (For those among you who do not understand the meaning of the word "trilogy" means.) I really have mixed feelings about this one--hence the four-star rating.
The book starts strong, and moves along nicely, weaving together se...more
The Dragon Heir
In The Warrior Heir trilogy written by Cinda Williams China the lives of Jack Swift, Seph McCauley, Madison Moss and Jason Haley are connected through life events that were struck in motion the day Jack realized he was a warrior. The 5 magical guilds were sorcerers, seers, warriors, enchanters and wizards. They were all gifted people who were born with Weirstones, a crystalline source of power that sits behind the heart.
In the beginning of the trilogy J...more
I liked the narrative of Madison I felt like she was a respectable person who puts everyone before herself. She was so strong and I loved her attitude and her Southern roots.
It took me awhile to really grow fond of Jason. At first I felt like he didn't have the right i...more
The book has flaws (quite a few in fact) and it's predictable (sometimes it's nice when you are ahead of the characters because you can watch them develop but sometimes it's just sloppy writing) but for entertainment value alone I'll round this up to a 4 star book.
Nothing to write home about but if you liked the first two in...more
Firstly, the two main characters were not very lovable this time around. Madison's entire storyline seemed fairly pointless. All of the drama and the tension was set up because Madison was...more
"Falling in love was like falling off a cliff. It felt pretty much like flying until you hit the ground."
In this next installment of the Weir series, the conflicts between the wizards and the other guilds have come to a head as the infamous dragon stone is borrowed (ahem, stolen) from the Ghyll and the power structure of the guilds begins to come apart. Surrounded and without many options, the young wizards and warriors read...more
The Dragon Heir is so far the best of the three books that I have read. This book is very compelling; the book starts off at a slow start but gets very interesting after just a few pages in.
I will first begin with the characters; the characters are well thought through and are very detailed with personality. The characters are believe able with some of their stories on how they were raised and their past.
I thought this...more
The main characters of The Dragon Heir are Jason Harley and Madison Moss. In the previous book, The Wizard Heir, I really like the both of them. However, when Jason became the main narrator, I didn’t like him as much as before. His desire to be known and his rebellious behavior became really annoying. I do feel bad for him at the end. Even though he was annoying, he didn’t deserve that...more
The grand war that occurs is somewhat silly too, you have a couple hundred wizards fighting half a dozen people and the author attempts to describe it in ways that sound like a massive fight with...more
The Dragon Heir is much a story about Madison and Jason who played roles in the Wizard Heir. This is the third book in a series that will be five books long. 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....more
Okay, to this book. So many characters I have come to love are facing the c...more
The characters of the book are a strange people called the Weir or wizards, and the Ana-weir or non-gifted. The book focuses on a magic stone embedded with the soul of a dragon called the dragon heart. This stone is unknown in power and is only settle when near Madison Moss. She is an eliciter The heirs form a small army of wizards and start a campaign to end the destruction of the 'norma...more
The Dragon Heir begins with the wizard world in turmoil. The events that ended The Wizard Heir are recent and the old powers are struggling to deal with the rebels who want to find a new path for...more
I wish there had been more background about the dragon and all of that. Instead, I had to flip back to the first book to reread parts.
My only other dislike is that t...more
