Wizard Excerpt from The Sorcerer’s Heir:

“Here’s the thing,” Leesha said. “I could use some help with my aunt. Aunt Millie is a sweetheart, but she’s not playing with a full deck these days, so I hate to leave her alone for very long. She’s a wizard, though, and that makes it hard to keep help. It’s what you might call a high-risk situation.”

“I’m not sure I—?”

“She sets fire to things now and then, okay?” Leesha said, thinking that being honest wasn’t nearly as easy as everyone made out. “And blows things up.”

“On purpose?”

“Oh, no,” Leesha said. “She wouldn’t hurt a fly. It’s just . . . Trying to get Aunt Millie to give up conjury is like getting any older person to give up driving. She can’t resist trying some spellwork, even though the results are unpredictable. Also, her cooking is appalling.”

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 Heiris 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.

Praise for the series:

“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)
