Dark Heart of Magic by Jennifer Estep

*ARC received for an honest review, thank you!

Something wicked this way comes...
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 competitor, 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 the most monstrous of all...

Wew, another awesome book from one Jennifer Estep, master of turning thiefs and assassins into the most kick-ass protagonists out there in the Urban Fantasy genre. 'Dark Heart of Magic' kicks off where 'Cold Burn of Magic' left us, with gathering dark forces and a tentative spark of love between two characters you can't help but fall in love with yourself. I swear, waiting for the next book in an amazing and heart-pounding series is the worst part of being a book reviews and passionate reader. But luckily, the wait is always worth it, just as it was for this one. Estep takes you on a whirlwind of a story filled with monsters, magicks, mayhem and humans, who sometimes turn out to be the worst monsters of them all. Cloudburst Falls is like the magical equivalent of Las Vegas, where not only can you gamble away all your money, you can also marvel at the pixies flitting around, and get eaten by a bigger and badder monster if you wander too far into the woods. I love the characters, the setting, the plot, the everything, and I once again cannot wait until the next book! 

Rating: 4/5
