Description of The Wizard Heirfrom Amazon:
"Sixteen-year-old Seph McCauley has spent the past three years getting kicked out of one exclusive private school after another. And it's not his attitude that's the problem. It's the trail of magical accidents--lately, disasters--that follow in his wake. Seph is a wizard, orphaned and untrained--and his powers are escalating out of control. After causing a tragic fire at an after-hours party, Seph is sent to the Havens, a secluded boys' school on the coast of Maine. At first, it seems like the answer to his prayers. Gregory Leicester, the headmaster, promises to train Seph in magic and initiate him into his mysterious order of wizards. But Seph's enthusiasm dampens when he learns that training comes at a steep cost, and that Leicester plans to use his students' powers to serve his own dangerous agenda. "
This sequel to The Warrior Heir (reviewed here) is just as exciting and full of adventure as the first one. I like the story and the characters, though sometimes I found the language to be a contrived, but it wasn't enough to distract me from the adventure story. It was a lot more violent than the first one, however.
Quite a lot of violence, not graphic, but it is quite scary.
Overall rating: ****
