Hosted by A Daily Rhythm.

I am currently reading Cold Burn of Magic by Jennifer Estep, this is actually my first book by this author. I am only about 16% in and it’s just now really catching my attention. So I hope it will now start to get better as the beginning was a little on the boring side.

Cold Burn of Magic

There Be Monsters Here. . .

It’s not as great as you’d think, living in a tourist town that’s known as “the most magical place in America.” Same boring high school, just twice as many monsters under the bridges and rival Families killing each other for power.

I try to keep out of it. I’ve got my mom’s bloodiron sword and my slightly illegal home in the basement of the municipal library. And a couple of Talents I try to keep quiet, including very light fingers and a way with a lock pick.

But then some nasty characters bring their Family feud into my friend’s pawn shop, and I have to make a call–get involved, or watch a cute guy die because I didn’t. I guess I made the wrong choice, because now I’m stuck putting everything on the line for Devon Sinclair. My mom was murdered because of the Families, and it looks like I’m going to end up just like her. .

Teaser:

I made it out of the square and slipped onto one of the side streets. I kept my backpack in front of me and my head down the whole walk home. I didn’t dare take the trolley. Not now.

But luckily, a blood-covered girl wasn’t an unusual sight in Cloudburst Falls, at least not in the dilapidated parts of town I was hurrying through, and I made it home without attracting any more attention.

Now you can see why it’s getting a bit more interesting. Lila just got in a spot of trouble with some baddies and now she is trying to get away from the scene. Β It’s at 16% of the eARC so anything in the teaser could change.
