Read full description of the books:
I gave it two stars based on the goodreads ranking of "it was ok." That sums Warrior Heir up well, not bad enough to recommend against it, but nothing special. This author strikes me as someone who grew up reading fantasy and became enamored with the idea of creating her own world like the great fantasy writers before her. However, this story has nothing approaching of the depth of Middle Earth, Narnia, Hogwarts, or even Sunnydale. A couple locations in Trinity, Ohio and Jack's hometown have some detail and, therefore, substance, but places like the battleground and the country of England are indistinct and have no life to them.
The characters are a bit bland, too. I was warming up to Jack midway through the book, but there's still not a lot of dimension to any of the characters. The villains are evil enough to dislike, but not evil enough to inspire much concern for their activities. The heroes have some flaws, but are still really good people in their hearts. And no one is funny enough or independently interesting enough to make up for the lot of them. Probably the most interesting is a relatively minor character, Jack's mother, and soley for the scene when she stands up to her son's brutish kidnappers in a thoroughly lawyerly fashion. But that paragraph just isn't enough to elevate the book to "good" status.
These issues could be ignored, maybe, if something else made up for it like the plot or a fascinating insight into anything about our world or really cool superpowers. Again, all of these things are too underdeveloped to carry the novel. More then once while reading the book, I realized that nothing had happened for far too long other than a laundry list of how the characters were passing the time. The only insight the book seemed to offer is that slavery is wrong in a vague sense that doesn't have to be explained because it's already accepted throughout the western world (and the book's audience base). And the powers... might be cool? Maybe if I knew more about them other than some people secretly have them. *What do they do? Wizard things! Or warrior things! You read Harry Potter right? It's like that, but without wands!* Sorry, that's how I imagine the pitch will go when the movie rights are optioned.
Also, the War of the Roses has a romantic ring, but let it go. The English did, so can the 8-14 year old girl inside all of us whose ears perked up the first time she heard that name. I know it conjures up amazing imagery without a bit of work for you, but that's the problem, isn't it? Think up your own imagery. Don't pretend this war was secretly carried on for hundreds of years after it officially ended by a sect of people who are fighting for something that has nothing to do with the actual war. I don't care if it sounds pretty, it makes no sense.
All that being said, I think the other word to sum the book up is "underdeveloped." It's some fine preliminary work, now run with it. This author needs a good editor who can push her past filler and into specificity. And who can say things like, "The War of the Roses has been done. It ended. Try again." But maybe she found one, because I hear The Warrior Heir is only worth reading as a set up for the sequel The Wizard Heir. It's on my shelf, so we'll see.
