Bright Blaze of Magic by Jennifer Estep
Black Blade #3

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…

BRIGHT BLAZE OF MAGIC caught me off guard as I didn't realize it was the last book in the series. I wasn't expecting the final show down and for everything to be tied up at the end of this book, but instead expected another cliffhanger ending. I have to admit I'm a bit bummed now as I've really enjoyed this series, and I do hope the author eventually writes more because there's so much potential for more. Don't get me wrong, the ending is very satisfying and fans of the series should be more than pleased, but when it comes to Jennifer Estep's books well I'm always wanting more.

Despite this only being a trilogy, I feel like there were so many building and looming threads packed into the previous book. So I was really impressed with just how well everything came together in this book. Everything and I do mean everything comes to a head, and no punches are held. More than a few moments were utterly gut wrenching and while it made me miserable in a away, I thoroughly enjoyed every emotion packed moment. So massive kudos to the author for crafting a story that's so rich in both the characters and the stakes that you can't help but get sucked right into the character's plights, feeling every emotion right alongside them.

All in all, BRIGHT BLAZE OF MAGIC proves once again that a Jennifer Estep book, and series are simply not to be missed. If you're looking for a fast paced read with amazing characters, incredibly high stakes, and plenty of twists and turns, this series is meant for you!
