I did really like how realistic Jack was, and how he reacted so predictably to his sudden change in circumstances. I thought that some of the supporting characters could have used a bit more attention and it might have made the story that much better. I think that is the only reason it took me longer than usual to read The Warrior Heir. With its short length I usually would have knocked it out in a day or two maximum, but it ended up taking me about half the week to get through it. It just seemed that there was something else more interesting to do each day, than to finish it.
I will read the next book, The Wizard Heir, and I’ll let that one cinch it for me. If it’s better than good I’ll probably continue with the series, and if it’s only marginal, it will probably be the end of the line for Chima and me. I should also mention though that I got this as an impulse read while browsing at the library without my list, so for that, it wasn’t half bad. I have certainly picked worse books in similar situations.
