    Good children/young-adult fantasy adventure, yall should try it out. I would rate it higher than the Eragon series, and up there with Harry Potter

    Why don't you tell us why you think that. I have had interest in this series, but haven't heard anything to really convince me. Not that you have to try and convince me, but letting us know why is better then just saying it's good.

    Why is it better? I don't really know. Because after I finished reading it I felt that it was better? My sentiments told me that it was better. I don't really know what you want, I can't read the book for you.

    The story line is clever and new. It definitely brings a new twist to young adult fantasy books. It's not another rehash of lord of the rings. The first book is mainly about introducing warriors, enchanters, wizards, sorcerers, and goes over warriors and their struggle in the caste system(focuses on the main warrior), the second book focuses on wizards and progresses the main story line, the last focuses on wizards/warriors/enchanters/sorcerers working together, with an elicitor, in order to bring balance to the gifted community.

    But really, I can't give it justice, and I can't read it for you. If you have interest in the series, then that is all you should need to read it, you don't need to know everything about it before you pick up the book. Not only will it bring more excitement to you if you aren't baby fed all the information about the book, it will make it more enjoyable because you will be discovering things for yourself. You suck the joy out of reading if you aren't open to take chances on new things.

    No you can't read it for me. :) But you could better explain then just saying it's better. There are countless reviews by people stating why they enjoyed a book. That is all I was asking for.

    And now you just did what I suggested. You gave me more to think about then just saying it was better then something else.

    I wasn't asking to be baby fed. You need to realize that your first post didn't give us much anything at all. It's hard to be enticed to read something if you just say, "Yeah, it's better then this." It comes across as immature. All I was asking was a little more information why you liked it. And in the midst of putting me down you told me in your middle paragraph.

    There are so many people in the world that have hundreds of books, and I am not exaggerating since I have over 600 myself, that they have in their possession and want to read. If they are told something is better and purchase the books based on that simple statement, then their collection of books to be read grows by thousands. I wasn't trying to be snarky, just asking for more information. Your original post, normally, wouldn't have helped anyone make a decision in buying the books. There are millions upon millions of books out there and so little time to read. Most of us don't want to waste money and time reading something that we won't like, and would like to know more about it so we may be able to avoid that trouble if possible.

    Blindsided, scooter13 brought up some good points.

    Also, posting the author's name and a little bit about the plot would help others find the title or if anyone had read the series, remind them about it and maybe post a comment.

    I looked it up and found that these titles make up The Heir Series, by Cinda Williams Chima. Many editorial reviews are favorable.
