Book Review: The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima

The Warrior Heiris the story of Jack Swift, a seemingly ordinary teenager, except for his heart surgery at birth. When he turns 16, however, and accidentally misses taking his heart medicine, he discovers he has a strange new power. He learns that he is not an ordinary teenager, but a warrior heir, one of the weirlind, a person with special powers derived from a stone in his chest. As he tries to comprehend this, his Aunt Linda pulls him and his friends into a dangerous search for a powerful weapon. But, that is only the beginning of the danger.

I thought this was a very well done adventure fantasy, complete with interesting characters and a compelling story. I found I couldn't put it down and had to finish it in one sitting. I did guess some of the twists along the way, but not the most obvious one (can't believe I missed it!) The ending seemed to tie up a little too nicely, but was still satisfactory. I was excited to learn it is part of a trilogy, because I am interested in knowing more about this fantasy world.
