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…

First Thought when Finished: I finished this one while on a road trip so my review won’t be as specific as I would like. Don’t write and drive y’all LOL! Bright Blaze of Magic was such a fitting end for this trilogy though so I wouldn’t want to give anything away anyway. I will miss these characters!
Quick Thoughts: Jennifer Estep is one of those authors that I trust to give me the story that I didn’t see coming but also that is needed for the world that she created. I may get annoyed but in the grand scheme I tend to get it. There were two moments in this book that I was like “WHYYYYYYYYYY” but then in the end I was like “OH THAT IS WHY!” I also trust her to give me YA that I want to read and I am picky about my YA. This trilogy was good from beginning to end. The characters were outstanding. The resolution of the conflict was full circle and fitting. While I am really sad to leave these characters behind, I feel OK that they will be good. They still have growing and living to do but that they are in a great place.

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
