Waiting on Wednesday #115: Bright Blaze 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.


Bright Blaze of Magic by Jennifer Estep is book #3 in the Black Blade series. It's due out April 26, 2016 from Kensington. It's a YA urban fantasy novel.

Synopsis from Goodreads.com:

In the exciting conclusion to her richly imagined Black Blade series about a reluctant young bodyguard and thief, and her hometown, where magic, mobsters and monsters make for a dangerous mix, Jennifer Estep expertly combines the snark and fast-paced action that have made her a New York Times bestselling author.

BAD THINGS ALWAYS COME IN THREES…

As a thief, I’m good at three things: hiding in the shadows, getting in and out unseen, and uncovering secrets. I put these skills to work for the Sinclair Family, one of the magical mobs that run the tourist town of Cloudburst Falls.

Everyone knows Victor Draconi wants to take over all the other Families—and kill every last Sinclair. What they don’t know is that I’m on to him, and no way will I let the man who murdered my mom get away with hurting all the other people I care about. Especially when I’ve got places to break into, stuff to steal, and Devon Sinclair fighting right by my side…

Why am I waiting on this book? It's the third one in the series and I've loved the previous two. If you like YA urban fantasy you should consider checking this series out. I'd start at the beginning though. The second book showed changes in the characters as they matured. 

You can read an excerpt of the book at the author's website here.
