Hey guys! You may have noticed from our occasional twitter freak outs that Steph and I are HUUUGE Cinda Williams Chima fans. As such, Cuddlebuggery is super excited to be a part of the World of Weir Blog Tour celebrating the up-coming release of the sure-to-be-epic conclusion to the Heir Chronicles: The Sorcerer Heir.
For our stop I’ve put together a Wizard playlist. If you’re unfamiliar with the series, the Wizard Guild gets a bit of a bad rap (to be fair, a lot of them have it coming). You know the whole power corrupts thing? Well the wizards are generally considered the most powerful of the guilds and let’s just say in many cases it’s taken its toll. The Wizard Heir tells another side of the story. It centers around Seph McCauley, an orphaned wizard boy who is just starting to learn about his powers and the possibilities and pitfalls they afford.
For my list, I looked for songs about power (duh) but also about isolation, abandonment, growing up and figuring out who you are, all the things Seph (and other characters) face over the course of the story. So without further ado, here’s my playlist for The Warrior Heir. Enjoy!
For other Wizard-y goodies and general Heir Chronicles excitement, make sure you check out the other blogs involved in Wizard Week and the rest of The World Of Weir blog tour.

Praise for the series:
“Chima offers a pitch-perfect blend of high fantasy and small-town reality…” –The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)
“Chima uses her pen like a wand and crafts a wonderfully rich web of magic, while thankfully leaving some dangling threads for subsequent tales.” –VOYA (starred review)
“A smoldering story soaked in tears, sweat and blood, constantly threatening to blaze into an inferno. Spellbinding.” –Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
About The Sorcerer Heir
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.
