At the beginning of the book, I was a little skeptical, I didn't think that it could live up to the first two books, but it did. The action was awesome and the writing was superb. Though most of the climactic stuff was crammed into the last 100 pages or so, and it kinda slammed into you and was overwhelming, I think it worked that way. If it had been drawn out, I don't think it would have had the profound impact that it did.
It didn't give quite the war that was expected, it wasn't exactly an epic clash of one side against the other, but to me it felt like this wasn't that bad with how the story went, and it still turned out to be an amazing book.
The raw emotion that builds up toward the end touches your soul. I swear at one part, I started crying. Its just indescribable. Though in my opinion, the ending left some questions to be wondered, it was satisfying and it left you with a content feeling.
Onto the things that I didn't like (there are some spoilers here, don't read on if you don't want to see them)
Linda and Hastings just disappeared, maybe the author couldn't find a way to incorporate them into the book, or maybe Hastings would have been an obstacle in the events that came to pass, but they were just absent throughout the whole climax! It seemed odd to me, that with their personalities, they just sat after they had left on a mission, without coming to help.
Maybe they didn't know about it, but being key characters, they really should have been there. And even after the climax, in the epilogue-ish chapter, they weren't even mentioned, it was like they disappeared off the face of the Earth. What happened there? (Spoilers end here)
Even after finishing the book, I can't seem to let go of it. Though I am satisfied and love the ending, I really don't want it to end. I can't give up the magic, I can't bear the thought of no new adventures for Jack, Ellen, Seph, etc, and that it has to end so soon. That no longer will I read about the Weir and the Roses and everything else. From the start, The Warrior Heir immediately enchants you and until the Dragon Heir, you blissfully read on, it entices you and after its gone, it leaves a void, an almost hopeless feeling and you wish so badly you get could get that blissful feeling back....more

Though this is the first book in a trilogy, it is amazing enough to stand alone as well. The biggest flaw in this book is not the book itself, but the summary on the back cover, it gives too much away, if the summary had been more vague, you could feel the shock and surprise later on in the book much more....more

The Wizard Heir takes on more of a darker perspective, in the first book, Jack has just been told he is a warrior, but in this book, Seth has known he is special for awhile. Of course, because of this, he has unwillingly caused the death of several people, because he couldn't control his powers. The conclusion isn't satisfying like the first book, but its to be expected. After getting into the second book, there's no turning back, you can't read it without going on to read The Dragon Heir, the first book however, can stand on its own....more
I think this was a wonderful book, though it lacks in some action, because it can't be made too violent, its still great. The best part about it is, iI think this was a wonderful book, though it lacks in some action, because it can't be made too violent, its still great. The best part about it is, if you know you're Greek mythology, as you read and they talk about characters in Greek mythology, though many times they don't name them outright, you can feel yourself smiling because you know whats coming!...more
