Happy Wednesday Everyone! Today I'm thrilled to be a part of the celebration for Cinda Williams' Chima's release of THE SORCERER HEIR, the final book in The Heir Chronicles, that released yesterday. I discovered this series at my library and fell in love with Cinda as an author. THE SORCERER HEIR is a fantastic end to this series. I love the urban setting that moves between the gritty parts of Cleveland and a small town in Ohio. The magical world is unique and filled with political intrigue and twists. And I loved that this book was told from Emma's, Jonah's, and Leesha's point of view.
And if you ever get the chance to see Cinda at a writing conference, go! She's a fantastic speaker who shares so much of her knowledge of the craft of writing.
ABOUT THE SORCERER HEIR
The delicate peace between Wizards and the underguilds (Warriors, Seers, Enchanters, and Sorcerers) still holds by the thinnest of threads, but powerful forces inside and outside the guilds threaten to sever it completely. Old friends and foes return as new threats arise in this stunning and revelatory conclusion to the beloved and bestselling Heir Chronicles series.
The Sorcerer Heir is a self-contained story, accessible to readers just discovering the Heir series, but loyal fans will be rewarded by visits from characters they love (and love to hate) from the earlier installments.
ABOUT THE HEIR CHRONICLES
The Heir Chronicles series will keep readers glued to their seats through riveting fight scenes, deadly political machinations, burgeoning romance, and the unfolding intrigues of a contemporary magical world.
Praise for the series:
"Chima offers a pitch-perfect blend of high fantasy and small-town reality..." –The Bulletin of the Center
"Chima uses her pen like a wand and crafts a wonderfully rich web of magic, while thankfully leaving some dangling threads for subsequent tales." –VOYA (starred review)
"A smoldering story soaked in tears, sweat and blood, constantly threatening to blaze into an inferno. Spellbinding." –Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
