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. . .

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
COLD BURN OF MAGIC is another hit for Jennifer Estep. I really loved this book. The characters and story line were well-developed. This book is a cross between mob families and the Elemental Assassin series. Lila’s Mom was killed by one of the Families, while saving Devon Sinclair when she was young. Now she lives on her own in the basement of the Library. When she saves Devon and his guards from three assassins at the Razzle Dazzle her world changes. She is dragged into working for the Sinclair family and now Devon’s bodyguard. The world building is really well-developed in this book. I now cannot wait until the next book to come out. Jennifer Estep is always on my TBR pile. I recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of Urban fantasy and Jennifer Estep. You will not be disappointed. I give COLD BURN OF MAGIC 5/ 5 STARS. 😉
