The covenant that was meant to keep the wizard wars at bay has been stolen, and the sanctuary of Trinity must prepare for attack. Seph monitors the Weirwalls, while Jack and Ellen train their army of ghosts to face an onslaught of wizards. Even Anaweir Will and Fitch are setting traps around the town's perimeter. To Jason Haley, it feels as though everyone but him has a role to play. Then he finds a powerful talisman - a huge opal called the Dragonheart - buried in a cave. When its power washes over him, he knows he's destined for a greater purpose than anyone ever imagined.

Madison Moss can hears the seductive call of the Dragonhear also, but she has other things on her mind. Maddie's been leaking dark magic ever since absorbing the blow that was meant to kill her boyfriend, Seph. If anyone finds out, she'll be banished from the sanctuary - and Seph - forever. Meanwhile, Trinity's enemies mean to win the war with the help of the Dragonheart, and they know that Madison Moss is the only one who can get it for them.

Moral compasses spin out of control as a final battle storms through a town that was meant to be a refuge. With so much to lose, what will Jason and Maddie be willing to fight for - and what will they sacrifice? It's everyone for himself in this thrilling conclusion to the Heir trilogy.

Predictable

The Dragon Heir by Cinda Williams Chima
Publication Date: August 2008
3 out of 5 stars

All is threatened by the new Covenant that was lost at Second Sister. The first covenant was bad enough, demanding underguilds to obey the wizards. But if the new Covenant is found and consecrated it will make D'Orsay supreme ruler, placing everyone at risk. But then with a war just around the corner, Jason stumbles across an amazing discovery. The Dragonheart. The Dragonheart has laid dormant for thousands of years, but something has woken it up. This powerful sefa could turn the tide in the not so far away war. But how can they use the Dragonheart if they don't even know what it is?

The Dragon Heir was another series disappointer. Many things were happening at once in this book and each event had its own narrator. Every branch of the story was explored and this made the book extremely predictable. There was no surprise or climatic point that was not dulled by your own for-telling.

This novel was about 500 pages long. If 200 pages of unneeded slow plot building events were weaned off, I believe it would have been a better book and would have had me glued more to the pages. I found I could set the book down at any time, even in the middle of a sentence.

This book did have a few good characters that kept me reading. For example, Seph McCauley who was loyal, stubborn, faithful, smart, and just a really great guy. One itty-bitty little thing peeved me, Jacks long hair. Since the first book I have imagined him with short hair and a soccer players build. Then all of the sudden in this book he has long hair and looks like a muscle builder. How did I miss that?

The Dragon Heirs ending just left me empty. I didnt gain anything from reading this book, and it just didnt end. The trilogy wasnt wrapped up with a clean end, just a what they did the next week kind of thing.

The Dragon Heir disappointed me personally, especially because I really enjoyed The Wizard Heir so much. I still cant wait to read The Demon King Trilogy by Cinda Williams Chima (not due for publication anytime soon) even though this book wasnt what I hoped for.
