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 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.

PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS…..
wait I mean, hmm. Magical powers… I think I’d use them to learn how to Apparate (or whatever the equivalent is in this world.) I’d also like the ability to slow down time so I could read a book for hours but it’s really 5 min in real life. That’d be awesome.
I haven’t tried this series but you know I LOVE the Seven Realms! Sounds like I need to read the Heir Chronicles too 🙂 Thanks for the amazing giveaway.

I guess it depends what the power is, but I would probably go with B. Also, I would get a cool costume.
OMG I was already super excited when I saw you were the one handling the CWC blog tour and then I saw your playlist and was YAAAASSSSSSSSSing even harder. I mean, starting it off with Power is just perfection, because if there was ever anyone to do something mean to the 21st century, it would be kick-ass Cinda Williams Chima characters. Once again you did a fantastic job, Megara.

Sounds like a really interesting series! I’m definitely putting it on my to-read list! Oh, and if I had magical powers I would save a puppy 🙂

I would steal alllz teh boooks. DUH. And have an endless supply of snacks. Also figure out a way to make other people exercise, but it keeps ME fit. Like, exercising by proxy. Honestly, I’d use my powers for such clear evil. (Maye i’d save a puppy or twelve.)

BAM. Suddenly you have unlimited magical power. Naturally, your first move is to:
c. Do something weird …Define weird. Kidding! Um, I’d probably make sure that my family and friends would be safe from any harm and happy. I know it sounds lame, but I guess I’m kinda an okay person. Next order of business? A pocket dragon. How rad would that be?
Marisa S recently posted…Marked
Oh! I love your playlist! Seriously, you have pretty much all of my favorite artists in there.
If I were to have unlimited powers suddenly, I would do something WEIRD. I would teleport to ten different vacationing spots in one day to spend an hour in the sun for each spot! Ten hours of sun, haha!
C. I would teleport to Ireland and have a fun trip, practicing and beginning to master my powers. I would find others like me and start to train but making sure that I always remember who I am and not abuse my power. I would make an awesome wizard creating spells and living life to the fullest!

I would apparate to somewhere picturesque and then film myself in a training montage as I learned how to use my new powers. And then I would find a tiger cub and raise it as my spirit animal.
Ellie recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books On My Fall 2014 TBR List
B… Only because I can’t think of a C at the moment.
I’m not a ‘smite thy enemies’ type of person. I’m definitely more of a ‘save all the kittens’ (and every other vulnerable species) type of person! I’d save the world! 🙂
D. Do something weird. Turn all the humans green or purple skinned for a week.
I LOVED the Seven Realms novels, but I haven’t had the chance to read the Heir Chronicles yet. I really hope to win the set so that I can read them!! The Seven Realms novels were amazing! What a wonderful author! 🙂
SOMETHING WEIRD well i guess its not weird but i would make myself invisible and rob a high end candy store. then i would get ot smitheing
Brittany T recently posted…♡Review: Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld♡
I LOVED the Seven Realm Series! This series is definatly on my to read list. I work in a High School Library and we can’t keep Ms. Chima’s books on the shelves!
If I had unlimited super powers, I would use them to fly. I know that’s kind of a boring answer, but I have always wanted to fly. No, actually, I would want some combination of flying powers along with web shooting powers like Spiderman has. He makes it look like SO MUCH FUN. Then I would fly around the world and learn new languages so that I could experience other cultures. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!!!
I love these books so much!
I would do an irish dance 🙂
If I had unlimited magical power suddenly I would reshape my life into something that I can be proud of and proceed to help make the world a better place!
Help people. It would depend on the power.
do something weird… like make bad drivers’ cars break down and one of those floating letters from Harry Potter tells them exactly why 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
C, of course
Of course I would like to find something weird to do that would completely annoy and undermine my enemies.
Shae/Shelver @ Shae Has Left The Room
Definitely c. I’m not sure WHAT exactly, but I’d want to experiment before I jump straight to smiting or saving, y’know?
Shae/Shelver @ Shae Has Left The Room recently posted…Top 10 Tuesday – Books on My Fall TBR
Do something weird, obviously. Then I would save a puppy
A. SMITE MY ENEMIES!!!
B. who can resist a puppy in need?
Mary G Loki
Do something weird: I would def teleport around the world to see my friends in Korea and Japan! As a prank I will pass by them on the road like a regular pedestrian and what them be like; Wait was that Sam??? I prob would do this a couple of days. lol It would be so much fun!!
So excited and can’t wait to read this! Telekinesis would be fun.
Power I would want: I would want to be able to speed read books in any language and understand them.
My first move if I had unlimited power would be to teleport back home to visit my friends and family up north, and then my best friends in Texas. It’d be nice to see the people that I have loved for so long.
After that, I would want to give myself some creative energy, allowing me to draw my characters easily and not be so self-conscious about my WIP novel. >>
I would have to say that I would definitely choose B!

I’m excited to read the rest of the series!
Magical power, why to be able to speed read.
If I suddenly got magical powers I think I would probably start smiting my enemies. It sounds pretty supervillainous, I know, but… Well, it seems the most efficient use of my power. I might go with something weird if I could think of anything. So maybe I won’t turn to supervillainy.
B! I would save a puppy or whatever. I am primarily focused on the the whatever part. (Whatever being a little innocent one million dollar bill stuck in a tree.) Although I would still save puppies because puppies equal adorableness.
In all seriousness, with magical powers I would love to fly, become invisible, and change appearances. The pranks I could play!
Thanks for the awesome post and giveaway!
Emily Anne recently posted…Review and Giveaway: Remember Me Blog Tour
It’d depend on the power, but either save someone or do something weird, knowing me.
I’d love to understand each and every language, so that I can read the original books and not just the translations!
Definitely going to go with the smiting my enemies… and then taking over the world because my enemies will be smited ^_^
I’m going with B, because puppies are adorable and amazing. 😉
Unlimited magical powers?!?
Well, nothing else for me to do but something weird!! Ah, I’ll teleport myself to a fantastic get away to the Arctic, and possibly have a cup of cold tea with the artic animals.
Hmmm… Smiting all my enemies sound rather delightful….Ahahah I will go for B though – can’t resist those puppies.
!!! I would 1000000000000% chose to save the puppy from the tree! Poor dog! Ahahaha!
Besides that, I really love your series!
