Helen 2.0 Nevada Baylor has a unique and secret skill—she knows when people are lying—and she's used that magic (along with plain, hard work) to keep her colorful and close-knit family's detective agency afloat. But her new case pits her against the shadowy forces that almost destroyed the city of Houston once before, bringing Nevada back into contact with Connor "Mad" Rogan.

Rogan is a billionaire Prime—the highest rank of magic user—and as unreadable as ever, despite Nevada’s “talent.” But there’s no hiding the sparks between them. Now that the stakes are even higher, both professionally and personally, and their foes are unimaginably powerful, Rogan and Nevada will find that nothing burns like ice …


So far it's me and Francesca but anyone is welcome to join. The only rule is: hide your spoilers in spoiler tags! And make sure to mark which chapter the spoiler comes from.

We'll probably decide on a reading pace once we all have copies and know more about the chapter/page count.

Happy Reading!

Helen 2.0 SO I GOT MY COPY!

There's only 15 chapters but each chapter is pretty long. Shall we say 7 chapters a day? What do you think?


Francesca ❆ I just woke up and my copy was "sitting" in my shelf *yaaaas*

Yes! Let's try do 7 chapters, it should be fine :)


Helen 2.0 I'm already on Chapter 4. Lol. Couldn't wait.


Francesca ❆ Hahaha don't worry...I'm a fast reader ;)


Helen 2.0 Well I have a head start on you, probably because of time difference ^^ I'm in Europe.


Francesca ❆ Me too (Italy). I woke up super late and immediately had lunch so now I can dedicate all my time to it.....also, I'm so glad you're in my time zone, the majority of my other friends are either from the us or Australia

Wow! You and I are really close :) I'm in Austria.


Francesca ❆ Omg!!!!!! You literally are at a 8 hours drive! *_*


Francesca ❆ Just finished chapter 7. Oh. My. God.


Helen 2.0 Yeah... Chapter 7 was really something.

Yes! I saw it on the group's thread and it makes so much sense!

Did you finish? I'm on chapter 14

Almost done.


Francesca ❆ Nice! *runs back to writing all the spoilers* :):):)


Helen 2.0 Done and so happy there's a Wildfire teaser at the end of copy :D

My thought is no one is honest about their talents. Also it looks like people are underestimating the power of empathy. When you truly understand someone there is nothing you can't manipulate them to do. Her entire life she can see not only what her words and actions can do to people but everyone around her. If she had nefarious goals and she's powerful enough she could bend the city to her will. What I really don't like is that every other woman we've met in this series is formidable in their own right except for her. That's just suspicious.

Yes! That's a very valid reasoning...also, her mom was a manipulator, no way she hasn't picked some of that up....and why did she married an herbologist?

Tarala Is it possible that Cornelius is a prime? If not what can a prime do that he can't? (view spoiler) It looks like being a prime is more trouble than it's worth.


Francesca ❆ Tarala wrote: "Is it possible that Cornelius is a prime? If not what can a prime do that he can't? [spoilers removed] It looks like being a prime is more trouble than it's worth."

Maybe? I can see his family either hiding his true ranking since he didn't want to be politically active or him directly hiding it for the same reason, or maybe he was a late bloomer?
The difference between Primes and Averages or Significants or Notables is the level of magic they can wield.

I think with magic users, especially animal mages and their bonds, not only raw power but also strength of mind and practice matters. Cornelius said himself he spends a huge amount of time training his animals and building bonds with them - I think it's his dedication, more than his power ranking, that makes him so good with animals.
Also evident with Rogan - he's a Prime, but certainly more powerful and remarkable than other telekinetic Primes. That trick with the chopstick in Burn for Me - damn. So what sets him apart is tight concentration, willpower, and military discipline.
So, basically: I think power rank matters, but individual strengths matter quite a bit as well.

Helen 2.0 About Rogan's "dual" comment, IA said this in a recent blog post:

On Chapter 15 (view spoiler)

I'm going to catch up with all the spoilers post and that article you mentioned but since I read somewhere that the end of Wildfire was not really an end, I'm so GLAD there's another book. I don't want to be left hungry ! But..... IT'S GOING TO BE TORTURE TO WAIT ARRGGGHHH

Lol you really dislike Rynda, don't you? Can't blame you. She's too perfect to be likable.

Lol =p Ah, I missed the Augustine's refusal part Oo' (my mistake... I read so fast the end because I was at the same time eager to have a glance at Wildfire and scared to have more questions xD).
