{Review} Cold Burn of Magic by @Jennifer_Estep @KensingtonBooks

{Review} Cold Burn of Magic by @Jennifer_Estep @KensingtonBooks

Cold Burn of Magic is the first in a new young adult urban fantasy series. This was my first book by Jennifer Estep, and I absolutely loved it! (yes, I know that is pretty much an offense worthy of a stoning.) I need to read her Mythos Academy books ASAP. I love that Cold Burn of Magic’s series name is the Black Blade series, because the black blade described is pretty scary (and cool). In fact, that was one of the things I loved the most of the story. Jennifer Estep’s description of the magical items in the story.

The books are each of their stories, BUT the cool part is that each of the books take place in roughly the same time period. For example, Her Best Shot is the story of Layla and Phin. Layla was on her way to spend spring break with her friend Felicity when her car broke down and she met Phin…. Read more »

{Book Review} Austensibly Ordinary by Alyssa Goodnight

Check out where Diary Jane Austen started with my review of Austentatious Austensibly Ordinary by Alyssa Goodnight Paperback, 320 pages Published January 29th 2013 by Kensington Age group: adult Series: Jane Austen #2 Source: ARC from Author   Summary: Steamy, funky, and thoroughly modern, Austin, Texas isn’t much like the gardened country estates of Jane Austen’s work. But there might be a few similarities in its inhabitants… Cate Kendall is no stranger to daydreams of brooding men and fancy parties—after all, she teaches one of her beloved Jane Austen novels in her English classes every year. But as for romance or adventure in her own life, the highlight of most weeks is Scrabble with her cute coworker, Ethan, and he draws the line at witty banter. But Cate is ready for a change. When she finds a mysterious journal that seems to have a link to the soul of the great Jane Austen herself, she knows it’s her chance. And she grabs on with both hands… Before she knows it, Cate has… Read more »
