Spotlight: The Enchanter Heir by Cinda Williams Chima
First of all, I want to let you all know that I have a functional illness (nothing too serious, don’t worry) that’s been kicking my butt this year. I’m sick all the time and this may cut into my blogging time sometimes. I hope you all understand, it’s really hard for me, but I’m trying to come to terms with it and I’m definitely trying my best to keep the posts coming for you guys! Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Now on to today’s post:
Yesterday, the cover for one of my most anticipated YA books for this year has been revealed! I’m obviously talking about “The Enchanter Heir”, the 4th book in Cinda Williams Chima’s Heir Chronicles, of which I devoured the first 3 books last year. I’m a big, big fan of Cinda and I can’t wait to get my hands on this book!
If you haven’t started The Heir Chronicles yet (or The Seven Realms, Cinda’s High Fantasy series), you should!
Release Date: October 22nd, 2013

They called it the Thorn Hill Massacre—the brutal attack on a once-thriving Weir community. Though Jonah Kinlock lived through it, he did not emerge unscathed: like the other survivors, Jonah possesses unique magical gifts that set him apart from members of the mainline guilds. At seventeen, Jonah has become the deadliest assassin in Nightshade, a global network that hunts the undead. He is being groomed to succeed Gabriel Mandrake, the sorcerer, philanthropist, and ruthless music promoter who established the Thorn Hill Foundation, the public face of Nightshade. More and more, Jonah’s at odds with Gabriel’s tactics and choice of targets. Desperate to help his dying brother Kenzie, Jonah opens doors that Gabriel prefers to keep closed.
Emma Claire Greenwood grew up worlds away, raised by a grandfather who taught her music rather than magic. An unschooled wild child, she runs the streets until the night she finds her grandfather dying, gripping a note warning Emma that she might be in danger. The clue he leaves behind leads Emma into Jonah’s life—and a shared legacy of secrets and lingering questions.
Was Thorn Hill really a peaceful commune? Or was it, as the Wizard Guild claims, a hotbed of underguild terrorists? The Wizards’ suspicions grow when members of the mainline guilds start turning up dead. They blame Madison Moss and the Interguild Council, threatening the fragile peace brokered at Trinity.
Racing against time, Jonah and Emma work to uncover the truth about Thorn Hill, amid growing suspicion that whoever planned the Thorn Hill Massacre might strike again.
