Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

An Ohio teenager discovers he's part of an underground society of magical people living in hiding among the normal. What's more, he finds out he's one of the society's last warriors--and the feuding houses of the society are scouting for players for a magical tournament.

A really great read! The main character is something like an ordinary boy and it's easy to find him realible. A good book for those who love characters developing fircely and the mix of midevial and modern. The story has quite a few suprises and will keep you turning pages till the end.
