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...
It’s Time For the Championship
Every year, the Families compete in the Tournament of the Blades and over the last two years, the Sinclair Family have lost. This year may be different though, because this year they have Lila Merriweather.
Lila is still badass
As I said in my review of Cold Burn of Magic, Lila is such a badass. This is only one of the things I love about her. Aside from all of her badassery, she’s also a loyal, and caring person. She’ll always do the right thing, even when doing the right thing isn’t always easy and that’s something that’s rare to find nowadays.
I cringed, even as she called out the last two words I wanted to hear. “Lila Merriweather.”
Lila is the house favorite to win the Tournament, and we all know why. She’s a badass. Have I said that too much? Oh well, it’s true. But another thing we all know? Things don’t always go according to plan.
Devon, Be Still My Heart
How can you not love Devon? He makes it so damn easy. He’s gorgeous, strong, and has such a good heart……basically, he’s perfect and he deserves ALL THE LOVE. Him and Lila really bring out the best in each other.
All the Action
One thing that I love most about Jennifer Estep books? You never get bored. This is true for the Elemental Assassin series, and it’s also true for the Black Blade series. There is always something going on and these books are filled with non-stop action so you are constantly on the edge of your seat.
Do You Like Magic and Monsters?
Then this is the book for you! This book has everything from magic and monsters to backstabbing and bacon. What more could you ask for?
