The Sorcerer Heir is the fifth and final book in the Heir Chronicles from Cinda Williams Chima and releases on October 21. Read an excerpt from the exciting conclusion of the Heir Chronicles.
Warrior Excerpt from The Sorcerer Heir:
“You’re aware that the wizard houses have a long history of holding tournaments between warriors and gambling on the result,” Gabriel said. “They mimicked racehorse owners, always looking to breed a stronger, more bloodthirsty warrior. But selective breeding in humans takes a long time to achieve, especially given the fact that there was and is a real shortage of warriors, because most of them have been killed off. So it occurred to some wizards that it might be possible to genetically engineer warriors who would be impossible to defeat. Or modify the Weirstones of members of the otherguilds to turn them into warriors.”
A memory came back to Jonah, of the swordplay demonstration in Trinity, when Ellen had called Jack Swift a “mongrel.” “Is that what happened to Jack Swift?”
Lilith shook her head. As I understand it, that was a surgical procedure. Really risky, and it still requires finding a warrior stone. My employers thought it might be possible to use treatments to gradually change, say, a sorcerer Weirstone into a warrior stone, or at least one that was close enough to fool a stone reader. If, at the same time, it was possible to enhance the warrior’s fighting capability, even better.
About the ‘The Sorcerer Heir’
The can’t-miss finale to the beloved and bestselling Heir Chronicles series.
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. Readers will be glued to their seats through riveting fight scenes, deadly political machinations, burgeoning romance, and the unfolding intrigues of a contemporary magical world.
