The first book is about Jack, an average high school student who almost died when he was a baby (OK, not so average). So since he was a baby he has had to take medicine for his heart. However one day he forgets and everything goes crazy. Jack finds out that he is a Warrior Heir and maybe the last of his kind. As if that's not enough he also finds that there are wizards and other non-wizard weir out there. The biggest problem is that the wizards want to capture him, so that they can play him in the game, which gives its winner control over the other wizards and non-wizard weir. As the story unfolds Jack goes thru a lot of ups and downs trying to figure out what is best for him and his family and friends. The end is great it finishes part of Jacks story while leaving you waiting for more :)
