    Wow…wow…wow.

    The Andrews do not disappoint. This book had everything I wanted and more.

    The number of times something Rogan said made me swoon…..3, 7, 9, 23. Actually so many I don’t remember.

    But beyond the Rogan and Nevada romance was such a fantastic story

    The Andrews do not disappoint. This book had everything I wanted and more.

    The number of times something Rogan said made me swoon…..3, 7, 9, 23. Actually so many I don’t remember.

    But beyond the Rogan and Nevada romance was such a fantastic story full of new magic. Nevada’s magic, her families, her enemies and Cornelius’s (the animal mage from

    ) magic was amazing I want to have his powers because….

    Ilona Andrews always comes up with some great monsters and we are not disappointed in this. There are some crazy beasties and a little more exploration of things that can come from the arcane realm.

    This story had dark moments, romantic moments, cute adorable (Rogan with a Cat) moments, wtf moments, tense how are they going to get out of this alive moments and so much more.

    But this still won’t be out for awhile so here is one quote to hold you over.

    Full Review to Come Closer to Release Date.

    Everything else goes on hold now......This gets my undivided attention.

    After my quick reread of Burn for Me I'm totally ready to beta this.

    Let's talk expectations. .. As all of us devoted readers know expectations can be the worst kind of plague. They make you excited and often a little bit manic and most of the time they lead to you wanting very specific things. Obviously the authors not being a mind readers can't deliver exactly what your overzealous imagination has come up with for their characters. And even if they could read minds, yours is probably not the only overexcited one they would have to satisfy. But is this ever a problem with IA? Nope. Just nope. They deliver every freaking time. ... even their "average" books are only average when compared to

    other books, and much better than most other authors' awesome ones.

    So now, having just finished this book (and I feel so lucky for having read this ahead of time) I actually have to write a vague enough review so that I don't spoil anyone's experience with this. Me... the Spoiler Queen!

    So in very few words, what should one expect of this book...

    This should not come as a surprise since IA always deliver in this part. Fighting, car chases, magic duels, mythical creatures,... are IA's bread and butter and this book was no different!

    This series is more romantic than Kate Daniels. The first book had enough sexual tension to light a room, this one had enough to light a city. I am a romance kind of girl so was I annoyed by this? Not freaking likely! Especially since the emotions made Mad Rogan's and Nevada's back-and-forths no less hilarious.

    When has IA ever failed with a plotline? This book was one of the "Prime" examples of why I love this couple so much. This is a short series so these books are not stand-alones. I wouldn't advise reading them out of order. This book did have a short of beginning and end in the storyline but it was really only a part of the overall story arch. But there was no confusion or repetition of useless information. Everything was done so masterfully that you just kept devouring information and yet you were never fed up. The plot was complicated enough to keep you glued but not a tangled mess you couldn't make sense of.

    Two words: Ferret spies!

    Despite all the greatness of the above, we all know that the real strength of IA's books comes from the characters and their development. Both the main and secondary characters are always full of uniqueness and awesomeness and plenty of times crazyness. This book was no different. We get to know Nevada and mad Rogan grow right along with Nevada's family and their friends. We watch Nevada coming into her power and having to make difficult decisions, both personal and professional. We learn more about

    Mad Rogan(*sigh*) and what makes him tick. We learn about her family and their unique weirdness. We get to know Augustine and Cornelius. Everyone is special, everyone has hidden and obvious depths and everyone is exciting in their own way. Even the villains are interesting!

    This is as far as I can go without spoilers. Just read the book... it's worth it!

    I don't want to go in too much detail over the book. I truly believe you should go in blind and discover all the epic twists,turns, world building and magic for yourself. I already want to re-read this one and get my hands on the third one.

    And it's finally out! I'm soo reading this in the weekend where I can lock myself in my bathroom so I can read it in peace! Hubby and kid can take care of themselves for a day!

    No joke!

    In

    (2017), the second book in Ilona Andrews’ HIDDEN LEGACY urban fantasy series, we return to a magical version of Houston, Texas, where some people (typically the rich and powerful) have inheritable magical powers. Nevada Baylor is from a not-particularly wealthy family that runs a private investigation firm, but she and some other members of her family have magical powers that are suspiciously strong for a family with no reputation at all as magic users. Actually, Nevada is a rare truthseeker: she not only knows when others are lying to her, but also recently realized that she can compel them to tell her the truth. But she’s trying to keep her magical power secret to avoid the trouble that public knowledge of it would bring.

    It’s two months after the end of

    and the near-destruction of Houston. Nevada Baylor hasn’t seen Connor “Mad” Rogan lately, since she told him she wasn’t interested in a fling, and she assumes that he’s moved on, despite the intense feelings they felt for each other. Nevada makes a couple of fateful decisions: First, she decides to use her newfound power of magically forcing someone to tell her the truth, to compel a mass child molester/murderer to confess where he’s hidden the last girl he kidnapped, who authorities believe is still alive. Augustine Montgomery, who holds the mortgage on the Baylor’s business, warns her that if her abilities become known it could be dangerous for her personally, but she can’t stand idly by. Nevada takes the precaution of disguising herself for the confrontation with the molester, but she knows she’s taking a risk that word of her spectacular powers will spread.

    Secondly, against her better judgment, Nevada agrees to take on an investigation for Cornelius Harrison, a gifted animal mage who appeared briefly in

    . His wife has been murdered while on the job as a lawyer for House Forsberg (hard to believe anyone would want to kill a lawyer, let alone four of them!) and he’s getting stonewalled on the details of her death. It’s clear that some of Houston’s magical Houses are involved in a far-reaching conspiracy. Unsurprisingly, as Nevada begins investigating Cornelius’ case, Rogan makes his long-awaited appearance. He has his own compelling reasons for being interested in this case ― as well as in Nevada.

    continues right where

    left off, with the fast-paced mix of adventure and romance that characterizes Ilona Andrews’ books. We learn more about the overarching conspiracy that endangers the life of almost every person in Houston, and Nevada and Rogan’s relationship continues to develop. The whole Baylor clan is back, as sassy and raucous as ever. Nevada’s younger teenage sisters, Catalina and Arabella, became more interesting and discernable personalities, and even are able to contribute to the investigation in some unexpected ways.

    One of the highlights in

    is the role of Cornelius and his animals: he has a mental rapport with beast and can train them to do incredible tricks, though they’re much more than stunts. There’s a scene with some criminally-minded ferrets that is beyond cute.

    As much as this scene will warm the heart of animal lovers, Cornelius also lets Nevada know that he has definite plans to avenge his wife’s death, though he’s close-mouthed about how he intends to do that.

    The Andrews author team excels at world-building, and one of the more intriguing aspects of the HIDDEN LEGACY series is its delving into the genetic aspects of magic and the effect this has had on magic users and their Houses socially. Some types of magic are more compatible than others. Dynasties are built around particular types of magic, and marriages are ruthlessly arranged to try to achieve the best possible combination to have magically gifted children that will keep the House in a position of power. There are various levels of magical power ― Prime, Significant, Notable ― and a House without a Prime is no longer a recognized House. That, too, plays a role in the plot of

    , in more than one way.

    has a rather cheesy romance novel cover, which is actually fitting, considering that it contains a several-pages-long explicit sex scene. Personally I thought it was over the top, especially since both parties to it are massively beaten up and bruised and Nevada has two broken ribs at the time. Apparently the painkillers in this world are magical too.

    is a compelling, compulsively readable novel that kicks the HIDDEN LEGACY series into an even higher gear. The reason for the title of this series becomes clear in a way that segues into the plotline of the third book,

    , to be published in July 2017. If you’re a fan of the urban fantasy/romance genre and have any question at all about whether this series is worth your time, the answer is emphatically yes! … and you can skip or savor the long sex scene, according to your personal inclination.
