The Sorcerer Heir (The Heir Chronicles #5)

by Cinda Williams Chima (Goodreads Author)

Book Synopsis(Goodreads):

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.

Emma and Jonah are at the center of it all. Brought together by their shared history, mutual attraction, and a belief in the magic of music, they now stand to be torn apart by new wounds and old betrayals. As they struggle to rebuild their trust in each other, Emma and Jonah must also find away to clear their names as the prime suspects in aseries of vicious murders. It seems more and more likely that the answers they need lie buried in the tragedies of the past. The question is whether they can survive long enough to unearth them.

Old friends and foes return as new threats arise in this stunning and revelatory conclusion to the beloved and bestselling Heir Chronicles series.

Quote 1:

“Any sensible girl who finds out that the boy she loves is a mass murderer would have made a plan.  That plan would not have been to leave him in a gazebo and then wander around in the dark woods so he could finish the job he’d started.

No.  A sensible girl would have run away from Jonah Kinlock as fast as her legs could carry her; as fast as she could go in her bare feet with a sprained and throbbing ankle.  A sensible girl would have been looking over her shoulder all the way back up the gravel path, worrying that he would come after her.  A sensible girl would not have been crying, grieving for the boy with the magic in his voice and the blues in his eyes, mourning the loss of something that was a lie— a lie—from beginning to end.”

Quote 2:

“When Jonah Kinlock woke up covered in blood in Seph McCaluley’s backyard, he suspected that he’d been set up.  Maybe it was the bodies scattered all around him or the bloody daggers that lay half-buried in leaves next to each hand.  Anyone who happened upon this little scene would name home the prime suspect.  He needed to exit the stage.”

Quote 3:

“She had a comeback though.  “All those other schools have a big advantage—you’re not there.  Maybe I can’t prove what you did, but I’m not going to look at you every day and wonder what you’re gonna do next.”

“Then I’ll leave,” Jonah said.  “I’ll leave school and move out of Oxbow.  Tomorrow.”

“Right,” Emma said, snorting.  “You know you can’t leave Kenzie.  And you can’t take him with you.”

“I won’t go far,” Jonah said.  I’ll see Kenzie every day.  But you’ll never see me, I promise.”

“Don’t make promises you can’t keep,” Emma snapped.

“You can always leave if I break that promise.”

“Do you think that makes me feel safe, the idea you’ll be creeping around campus, that you might be right around the next corner?”

“I can’t leave Kenzie,” Jonah said.  “My point is, do what’s in your best interest.  That’s all I’m saying.”

“How do you know that leaving isn’t in my best interest?”

“I can’t predict the future, but I’m guessing It’s not.  I’ll do whatever I can to make it work for you.”

“You’ve made your point,” Emma said.  Her tears spilled over, leaving tracks through the dust on her face.  “Now, I’m really busy here.”  Her voice trembled.

“Don’t you want to ask me any questions?” Jonah said.

“I do,” Emma said.  “Why are you still here?”

“You say you hate a liar,” Jonah said.  “I’m here to tell the truth.  It’s a limited-time offer.  Once it’s over I go straight back to lying.”

Their eyes met across the workbench, emotion reverberating between them as if they were connected by a steel-wound string tuned to a high pitch.”
