The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima.
Before he knew about the Roses, 16-year-old Jack lived an unremarkable life in the small Ohio town of Trinity. Only the medicine he has to take daily and the thick scar above his heart set him apart from the other high-schoolers. Then one day Jack skips his medicine. Suddenly, he is stronger, fiercer, and more confident than ever before. And it feels great-until he loses control of his own strength and nearly kills another player during soccer team tryouts.
Soon, Jack learns the startling truth about himself: He is Weirlind; part of an underground society of magical people who live among us. At the head of this magical society sit the feuding houses of the Red Rose and the White Rose, whose power is determined by playing The Game-a magical tournament in which each house sponsors a warrior to fight to the death. The winning house rules the Weir.
As if his bizarre magical heritage isn't enough, Jack finds out that he's not just another member of Weirlind-he's one of the last of the warriors-at a time when both houses are scouting for a player.
So the first cover is the one I fell in love with an have. It's very simple with an object in the front, solid background color, and the cool corners. Now the new cover has this cool image in the background that gives more to the setting.
Between the two, I seriously can't choose. They both look so cool but maybe the second looks a tad bit cooler. What do you guys think though? Vote for your favorite down below and let's see which is the winner!
