Goodreads says my answer is too short and I must make it longer. Ummm.... Here is a snippet?
“We’ll tell you whatever you want,” Ella said. “Just make that abomination release my husband.”
Rogan turned to me. “How would you like to proceed?”
They were looking at me, a mixture of panic, disgust, and utter desperation on their faces. I was the monster in the room.(less)

Re-read Coming soon in May and June
The Re-Read of this was even better!!! Partially because the book was so good, but also because the people over at Ilona Andrews Addicts (IAA) are amazing as well.
If like me you got to the end of this book and were sad that it was all over, have no fear Ilona and Gordon are here and it is confirmed that there will be one more book in this series. EVERYBODY CHEER!!!
And IA is right there was just no way to shove one ...more
Before anything else, it's important to know: the main storyarc is not resolved in this book. We still don't (definitively) know who Caesar is, and Rogan's conniving snake of a cousin has yet to receive her comeuppance.
And while that may not be ideal, guess what is?
MOAR HIDDEN LEGACY. *dares you to be a pessimist*
I mention this b/c while I knew a fourth installment was planned, before reading WILDFIRE for the first time, I had assumed that promise was a boon rather than ...more
Ok, so I caught a lot of (good natured) shit for not falling in love second book, and that made me a teeny bit nervous to read this one.
Three stars is a RESPECTABLE rating, you maniacs!
But then I realized that I am a strong, confident woman who is capable of standing up to a bunch of book geeks and voicing my opinion...because y'all don't scare me.
Or that's what I told myself.
The reality looked a bit more like this:
So yeah. I was kinda nervous what with all the IA Addicts out there. ...more
Let me first grumble about those awful covers. I have seen these books on numerous occasions on my home feed but those covers always made me resist the books. These covers don’t simply do justice to the story that you get behind them. I expect better from these authors. I just love their Kate ...more

If I'm honest I find it a little intimidating trying to write reviews for this series, mainly because it is the best series I've discovered since I started blogging in 2010 (no joke I've read well over 2,000 books in that time but ...more
Review first posted on Fantasy Literature. Note: some spoilers for the previous books in this series, Burn for Me and White Hot. You do need to read the first two books in this urban fantasy series before jumping into this third one.
The smoking hot adventures of Nevada Baylor and Connor “Mad” Rogan continue in Ilona Andrews’ Wildfire (2017), the third book of the HIDDEN LEGACY series, set in ...more
Continues to be one of my favourite trilogies.
29/11/17 Rogan POV from Wildfire Part 1!!!!!
If I could, I'd give this even more stars. Now, I really, really want a book about Catalina and Alessandro Sagredo! And Michael. And I want Grandma Frida to meet Linus Duncan. (view spoiler)[unless he's Caesar. If he is I'll be kinda disappointed as I really like him. (hide spoiler)] Do not open the spoiler unless you have read all ...more
"Things around you have a way of turning interesting. I do hate to be bored.”
Oh yeah, no boredom to worry about when Ilona Andrews is on the scene. I loved this book so much that I want to marry it. Or, at least let me marry the authors. Yes, they are already married, and so am I, but I need them. We can work something out.
What would make good bait for my marriage trap that I am building for the Andrews'?
If you have been reading this series, you will LOVE this book, and if you haven't, get y ...more
A buddy read with the Ilona Andrews Fan Club, because they are amazing!!!
I don't even think I should write a review, because what is there to say? You guys have to read this series! Forget about the cheesy covers, even ignore the fan-girling all of us hard-core Ilona fans do, just approach it as a regular Urban Fantasy with some Romance in it. The magic system is unique and interesting, the way the Magic genes are transferred and the way society has become constructed around the Fa ...more
There are three kinds of people in this world:
1. Those who have read the Hidden Legacy series, given each book 20,000 stars, and would wrestle a fulgurkinetic Prime in a thunderstorm for the chance to read the next installment;
2. Those who, upon learning of the series' existence, immediately wanted to read it but were unavoidably hindered from doing so by some massive personal catastrophe that needed to be dealt with first, and thus have not rea ...more
This can't be the end of the Hidden Legacy world!?! I just won't allow it!
I did a very rare thing with this book: I preordered it.
In a world where I'm inundated with stories, I infrequently take the time out to preorder something that I'm looking forward to. Rarely do books stand out enough for that, for me, but this one... I couldn't wait to get my greedy little hands on it!
I adored this book. Adored. I know, I know, it's probably not perfect, but I ...more
Who knew that being a Prime or becoming one could be so wrought with danger?
Well, I guess I already knew that from the previous books, but seeing ...more
What can I say except this series has been marvelous from beginning to finish.
Ilona Andrews has a way of writing stories that get better with each book. I just recently talked to a friend about the interesting fact that their series seem to get better with each book when low and behold Ilona Andrews wrote a blog article about just that. You can find the article here.
I think if you've never read any book by this author duo you MISSED OUT!!!
There is just no comparison between their books ...more
I’ve been dying to get my hands on a copy of Wildfire, the possible conclusion to The Hidden Legacy series, ever since I finished White Hot. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint! Ilona Andrews is one brilliant writing team, and they never fail to wow me! I always try to set aside a day to gobble up one of their books, because once I get started I don’t want to set it aside. Than ...more
ALL THE STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I loved this book! This series is MIND-BLOWING and FANTASTIC and now one of my favorites FOREVER. I can’t recommend it enough!
POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD
With Nevada’s powerful paternal grandmother, Victoria Tremaine, knowing about their existence, the only way to keep the Baylor family safe is to petition to become a House of their own, and with three potential Prime’s in their family it might just be possible and their only hope. But Victoria,...more
Love the book, the plotlines, the characters: goodies and meanies included, the setting, the magic, the intrigue, but above all love Ilona & Gordon for creating another amazing book in the series. There is so much potential in this world and it feels we hardly scratched the surface even though every book adds more substance, more layers, more depth - but it is not enough. I WANT MORE of everyone and eve ...more
I loved this book! I have actually already read this book twice since I was able to get my hands on a copy. I couldn't wait to get started the first time through the book and barely came up for air until I finished the story. I knew that I would need to slow down and read it a second time before being able to write a review. So I read this book for a second time less than three months after my first read through and I liked it just a ...more

WILDFIRE was so good that I actually didn't want to review it right away or even read anything else. I just curled up in bed and watched mindless YouTube videos, thinking about how good this whole trilogy was (so far), and wondering why the hell it isn't a TV show when so much other bullshit is making it to prime time.
(Seriously, if nobody's bought the film/TV rights to this series yet, they better get cracking.)
The book gets off to a ...more
Re-re-re-read in record time :D
I truly hope this series isn't over yet.
There is still so much to explore and to develop in this world where wealth, power, influence and prestige belong to the strongest magic wielders. Ilona Andrews originally signed for 3 books and though this trilogy could possibly stand on its own, the couple obviously left the door open to more stories. A girl can hope!
Edit: Yep, there is a a 2nd trilog ...more
I mean, for the most part, I found it wildly entertaining, despite the world building holes I come to expect from IA. Also, did NO ONE ELSE notice all the women-on-women hate? If the women mentioned weren't this MC, related to this MC, or working with this MC, they were all painted as assholes and "promiscuous".
And by promiscuous, I mean there's a lot of slut shaming in here.
More women were "the enemy" than on this MC's side. In the way that this ...more
As one of your devoted worshipers, I beg and pray of you to please continue this series. I love it. The world... the characters... the magic... the houses... the heat... the naughty bits...
I NEED MORE! *offers human sacrifices to the writing-gods*
What? You think I'd sacrifice animals? I like animals better than people. I also like books better than people. So, "Ilona Andrews"... GIMME! ...more
Mad Rogan AKA Connor and Nevada Baylor are in my top of perfectly matched couples list. The banter, tension, and respect is a thing of beauty. This is a never easy, always worth it kind of coupling, tipped with many near death moments, and I love it. How can I not love a "bring it" attitude ? ...more
What can I say, I really enjoy this series. I think this book is on the same lever of like, for me, as the first book. The reason it's not the best of this series is Connor's annoying ex. At some point, all the empathy for her kidnapped husband and her whole situation just wasn't enough for me to like her. I am definitely team Nevada all the way and thankfully Rynda admited defeat. Had there been more calls, hugs or kissing Connor I was going to scratch her eyes out! But in the end she ...more
I have some small grievances, that I will happily ignore in my final rating, because the rest was just so much fun:
Too many repetitions of previously explained points. The elaborate descriptions of absolutely everybody's hairstyle, hair colour, shape of their chin, skin tone, bla... got a bit tiresome.
Oh, yes, and please ignore the cover. It is hideous and has absolutely no relevance for the contents of the book. ...more
Sooo thrilling and yet so comforting. Especially the relationship between Nevada and Connor, of course, but also the family matters (Leon especially) and the thrill of the underlying mystery. And it's hot and hilarious on top of all that.
Yes, YES, YESSS!
This is not, as originally planned, the final volume of the series and thank goodness for that. There will be a 4th - but I'm still holding out hope for more. Nevertheless, apart from the larger conspi ...more
Nevada and Connor “Mad” Rogan are off to find Rogan’s ex- fiancé, Rynda, husband. He’s disappeared leaving some nefarious repercussions for Rynda, Nevada and Rogan to face.
Nevada is still reeling from her newly acquired news worthy pr ...more
A good third instalment to the series, though I didn't enjoy it as much as the first two. The story ended in a way which suggests that there will be more books in the series. And I hope so because I love coming back this world. I often used to wonder what Hidden Legacy meant and I finally got to understand that in this one woohoo! I'm certainly going to read more by Ilona Andrews. I enjoy their work and they really know how to write fun, quick, easy reads that grip you from start to finis ...more
