Welcome to the epic Blog Tour for the Heir Chronicles series – each week featuring a different Guild!
And this week we are kicking off the
THE WORLD OF WEIR blog tour
I’m so excited to be part of tour for this phenomenal epic Fantasy Series! Today with a short intro into the Wizards and amazing Giveaway!!
Who are the Wizards?
Wizards are the most powerful of the magic users, and utilize their ability to control and influence others to maintain power and dominance over the other Guilds.
Wizards are the most powerful of the Weir because they use High Magic, meaning that they use verbal charms to shape spells. They can control others, such as Warriors, through mind magic. A Wizard’s touch is electric, and they can recognize one another through their auras. Wizards are also “long lived” and can use their power over great distances. Because of this, and their powers to create barriers, immobilize people, and use charms and counter spells, Wizards are the dominant Guild. However, they have a limited ability to heal injuries, especially magical injuries, and if untrained can leak magic, which causes inexplicable events to occur. During the Wizard Wars and with the Rules of Engagement, Wizards used their power to control Warriors. Because of this, Warriors are almost extinct. Many Wizards use Wizards Staffs, which are magical tools that enhance and concentrate their power. They are not required in order to cast spells, but may assist wizards in controlling large amounts of power.

ABOUT The Sorcerer Heir
The can’t-miss finale to the beloved and bestselling Heir Chronicles series.
The delicate peace between Wizards and the underguilds (Warriors, Seers, Enchanters, and Sorcerers) still holds by the thinnest of threads, but powerful forces inside and outside the guilds threaten to sever it completely. Old friends and foes return as new threats arise in this stunning and revelatory conclusion to the beloved and bestselling Heir Chronicles series.
The Sorcerer Heir is a self-contained story, accessible to readers just discovering the Heir series, but loyal fans will be rewarded by visits from characters they love (and love to hate) from the earlier installments. Readers will be glued to their seats through riveting fight scenes, deadly political machinations, burgeoning romance, and the unfolding intrigues of a contemporary magical world.
