On My Wishlist: Dark Heart of Magic by Jennifer Estep


Dark Heart of Magic
by Jennifer Estep
368 p.
Publisher: Kensington
To be Published: 10/27/15
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 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...
This is a series that has already become one of my fave UF/YA series! Can't wait to read it!

What are you wishing for this week?

  1. Intrigued by that teaser. 'Tournament of Blades', 'Mysterious accidents', 'murdering monsters' - sounds good to me.

  5. I wasn't the biggest fan of book one, but I'm still very interested in reading this. You reminded me of it, I'm off to check if it showed up on Netgalley.

  9. Sounds interesting! For some reason, anything involving mobsters always turns me away, though. I'm not sure why--maybe because they're just so icky!
