Friday Memes: Cold Burn of Magic by Jennifer Estep

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Bad things always come in threes.

Three strikes. Those three bears that Goldilocks ran into.

The three guards with swords who were chasing me right now.
Friday 56:
I cursed myself for getting involved in the fight, even though there was nothing I could do now but see things through to the end. I wasn't sure why, but I couldn't let Devon die.
This week I am spotlighting Cold Burn of Magic by Jennifer Estep. I bought this one for my Kindle in June. Here is the description from Amazon:
There Be Monsters Here. . .

It's not as great as you'd think, living in a tourist town that's known as "the most magical place in America." Same boring high school, just twice as many monsters under the bridges and rival Families killing each other for power.

I try to keep out of it. I've got my mom's bloodiron sword and my slightly illegal home in the basement of the municipal library. And a couple of Talents I try to keep quiet, including very light fingers and a way with a lock pick.

But then some nasty characters bring their Family feud into my friend's pawn shop, and I have to make a call--get involved, or watch a cute guy die because I didn't. I guess I made the wrong choice, because now I'm stuck putting everything on the line for Devon Sinclair. My mom was murdered because of the Families, and it looks like I'm going to end up just like her. . .


  1. I haven't picked up this book yet, but I did read Jennifer Estep's other YA series (Mythos Academy) which I really liked. :-)

  2. I am currently reading the second of this book, it's a decent series.

  3. Love the beginning snippet. Yes, I've noticed that trials and difficulties can come in 3's. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I'm not sure that this is a book for me, but I hope you'll love it.

  5. That rule of thirds is so true. Sounds like a good read! Happy weekend!

  6. I like the writing in the excerpts. Sounds like a good story.
    My Friday post features The Paragraph Ranch.

  7. I have one of Jennifer's other series on my kindle but haven't had a chance to get to it. Will need to add this one to my list. Here's my Book Beginnings & 56

  8. Hi,
    Oh boy, she sounds like she's in trouble. Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!!

  9. Yikes. I so want to read this book. I want to read a bunch of her books! LOL

    My 56 -

  10. Well, the opening line's not wrong. I always look for the third thing when two not so pleasant things happen!
