The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Jack lives an unremarkable life in an unremarkable town until one day he forgets to take his daily medication. All of a sudden, he is faster and stronger and more alert than he has even been in his life. As he eventually learns, Jack is one of the last of the warriors, destined to fight for wizards in a tournament to the death. With the help of a very dynamic and persuasive "aunt", a teacher/coach, and a couple of loyal friends, Jack tries everything he can to train for the upcoming battle...and to survive high school.
Fun, easy read and I really enjoyed the idea behind this series. It dragged on a bit in the middle, but I am assuming with each new installment in the series, you will learn more about this wizarding/warrior world. Fun book for preteen and teens.
