Waiting on Wednesday #106: Dark Heart of Magic by Jennifer Estep


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.


This week the book I am waiting on is Dark Heart of Magic by Jennifer Estep. This is book two in her Black Blade series. It's due out October 27, 2015 from Kensington I reviewed book one in the series, Cold Burn of Magic, here.

Synopsis from Goodreads.com:

As a thief, I stick to the shadows as much as possible. But when the head of the Sinclair Family picks me to compete in the Tournament of Blades, there's no escaping the spotlight—or the danger.

Even though he's my competition, Devon Sinclair thinks I have the best shot at winning what's supposed to be a friendly contest. But when the competitors start having mysterious "accidents," it looks like someone will do anything to win—no matter who they hurt.

As if I didn't have enough to worry about, mobster Victor Draconi is plotting against Devon and the rest of my friends, and someone's going around Cloudburst Falls murdering monsters. One thing's for sure. Sometimes, humans can be more monstrous than anything else...

Why am I waiting on this book? I enjoyed book one in the series and I want to see where book two takes Lila Merriweather, the main character in the books. I like that it is sort of a cross between urban fantasy and regular fantasy. It's a city in the US, but a magical city that everyone knows has fantastical goings on. And it's a Jennifer Estep book. I enjoy her writing in general.
