Book: The Wizard Heir by Cinda Williams Chima

5 years ago

Sixteen-year-old Seph McCauley has spent the past three years getting kicked out of one exclusive private school after another. And its not his attitude thats the problem: its 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. Gregory Leicester, the headmaster, promises to train Seph in magic and initiate him into his mysterious order or wizards. But Sephs 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 wicked agenda.

In the beginning of this book I was so excited to read it, the storyline flowed really well and kept the reader intrigued. That is until the middle of the book. All of a sudden I had to push to read one chapter and lost interest quick. So instead of trying to read more, I finished a different book and then came back. Once I got to the last 100 to 125 pages the flow was back and I finished it in a couple hours.

There were characters that I wish had bigger parts but they ended up getting killed off too soon. Seph as a main character was kind of blah with not much going on even though he had quite a history and a developing storyline. I found that his character was one of the reasons the middle of the story was so boring.

Overall, if I could have just read that very beginning and the end I would have liked this a lot more.
