BOOK REVIEW: Dark Heart of Magic by Jennifer Estep


BLURB:

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...

REVIEW BY: Angel, age 12 years, 11 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book is a fast-paced, action packed, suspenseful read. 

This book is about Lila Merriweather. She gets picked to represent her family, Sinclair, for her talent at Soulsight. However, during the friendly competition, someone is trying to kill off the competitors. Will Lila find the person killing off the competitors or will everyone die?

My favorite character is Oscar because he is funny and spunky. 

I recommend this book to people who like mysterious battle novels. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 and up.
