Review : The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima

“One March day, Jack Swift, a high school student in a small college town, forgets to take the medicine he’s taken daily since he was an infant. There ensues a cascade of events that puts him in mortal danger.

Jack discovers he carries a secret within him that has made him a target of the ruthless wizards of the Red and White Rose. Jack is a Warrior Heir, the last of a dying breed, sought after by the Roses to fight in the tournaments that are used to allocate power among the Wizard Houses. Unknown to him, Jack has lived all his life surrounded by members of the Magical Guilds: wizards, enchanters, soothsayers, and sorcerers. They are determined to save him from the Roses.
With the aid of his aunt, a beautiful enchanter, Jack desperately tries to acquire the skills that might save his life. Jack and his friends, Will and Fitch, unearth a magical sword from a cemetery and fight off the wizards who would take it from them. Jack begins training with the dark and dangerous Leander Hastings, a wizard with a mysterious past.” (Goodreads)

I woudn’t call that a review because i didn’t finish this book. I just couldn’t get into it. The story sounded super interesting but UGH, i don’t even know what to say. It had absolutly nothing making me want to keep on reading. It felt like nothing was really happening and when something was happening, it was predicable. The characters were boring. I didn’t care about them. The writing was dull, but not bad. I think her writing could be good if she pushed it just a little bit more.
Maybe one day i’ll pick it up again and enjoy it more. But right now all i can say is that this book didn’t made it for me…

The Warrior Heir : 1/5 (not finished)
