Jinx's Fire by Sage Blackwood

Jinx just wants everyone to get along but it's not to be.  There are three kings fighting over Urwald and the Bonemaster has Simon as a captive and he wants to control the world, and trees are losing their magical power.  What is what young man to do to fix this?

Katherine Tegen Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.  If you haven't had the opportunity to read the others in this series, you should.  The trio of books tell you all about Jinx's life and magic and the people he loves.  This is the conclusion of his story and it's very well done.

Simon's home is becoming known as a safe house.  More and more people keep moving in.  They've had to add on to the house to accommodate them.  Urwald keeps getting more dangerous for its inhabitants and they need someone to stop the pending war.  Jinx tries to talk reason into the King he knows best but it doesn't help.  All they can do is prepare for war and use wards to keep the soldiers away.

While this is going on, he's still trying to figure out how to save Simon.  They have some clues in books, but no one knows how to interpret what they're reading.  They do have a smart werewolf on their side and he's helpful.  They just have to be attentive so they don't get eaten.

You meet trolls, elves, and other magical creatures.  Jinx risks his life several times to help people, defeat the Bonemaster and save Simon.  In saving Simon and killing the Bonemaster, he may end up severing his own life force.  But what else can he do?

With mystery, magic, war, and lots of emotional drama, you'll be so busy reading you might forget to eat.  It's that kind of book.
