The Wizard Heir

Jack Swift, a sixteen-year-old boy from a small town in Ohio, lived like a normal kid for almost sixteen years. All that sets him apart from everyone else is the scar above his heart and the medicine he takes each day. One day, however, he forgets to take it. Suddenly, he is stronger, faster, and more alert then anyone around. However, that draws the attention of the Roses. The Red and White Rose have been looking for warriors like Jack. The problem is, the constant fighting has driven warriors to near extinction. Now, Jack must learn to fight in order to compete in the games that will likely kill him.
