Cold Burn of Magic by Jennifer Estep
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lila has been on her own since her mother was murdered four years earlier. She has survived stealing for her friend’s pawn shop and living in the library basement. Her goal is to stay off the feuding Families’ radar and finish high school. Neither looks like a long term option when the Family feud finds its way into the pawn shop and Lila ends up saving Devon Sinclair. Now she is asked to help protect Devon and Lila believes she will end up like her mother … dead because of the Families.
Cold Burn of Magic is the first book in a new series by Jennifer Estep. Readers will be pulled into the story quickly and the action weaved throughout will keep them turning page after page. Estep has created a world that is slightly different than our own since magic and its monsters are known, yet readers who don’t normally enjoy fantasy stories can still devour this adventure tale. The second book is scheduled to come out later this year and I will definitely be looking for it.
