"The characters are as fantastic as Estep fans have come to expect." – RT Book Reviews
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…
"An adventurous ride you will never want to get off." --#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout on Cold Burn of Magic

Quickie Review

Oh my goodness… what an ending to this trilogy! I loved being in the town of Cloudburst Falls, and I love the little mentions of Estep’s other book settings in each book. There’s also a Pork Pit shirt described in this book that I think needs to be a reality because I would totally wear it in all it’s neon greatness.

We learn even more about the rivalry between the Sinclair’s and Draconi’s. And it’s definitely not all sunshine and rainbows. You realize just how horrible Victor really is. With that said, I love how Lila and her friends band together to figure out a solution to the problem.  And you see how Lila’s kindness to the monsters helps her in a big way.

I’m trying to keep this spoiler free for those that haven’t read these books yet, but it’s so hard because there are a ton of things I want to discuss.  But for now I’ll leave it vague.  Just know, you won’t be disappointed.
