    first of a new trilogy in the Hidden Legacy world

    As usual, I like the Hidden Legacy world, which is my second favorite of the Ilona Andrews worlds, after Innkeepers. The HL world gets a little more fleshed out in this book, which the blurb indicates is going to be the first of a trilogy. I was a little nervous beforehand about a story focused on Catalina, and one where she somehow has become the head of House Baylor, but in the end the storyline works. I got hooked on finding out what was going on, and finished it the same day I started it. (Luckily, I started it on a weekend…) I thought the character development was also pretty good, with the exception of the transition of the House Baylor leadership from Nevada to Catalina. The explanation for this comes part way into the book, and it just seemed a little forced to me. Still, it didn’t derail me from the story for too long, and in the end, it wasn’t a major issue – just a little bit of a hiccup. I like the way Catalina’s character has developed. I especially like the way she relies on the House Baylor rules (once you have a client, stay with that client; try not to do anything illegal; have to be able to look yourself in the eye - NOTE: these are not spoilers since they are in the earlier books…) in making some of her choices, even while developing as a quite different character than Nevada. I guess my only major disappointment is that this is apparently the first of a trilogy, and so although there is a conclusion to the main plotline, the story arc is left somewhat hanging at the end. And, since I very much enjoyed this book, I’m bummed that I am going to have to wait for books 2 and 3 of the series to find out more about how things really turn out. Finally, just a bit of guidance – if you haven’t read the earlier titles in the HL series, you’ll probably want to read them first. Although you could probably make it through Sapphire Flames without the background from the earlier books, I think it will be a lot more enjoyable with the background.

    Perfection!

    There is something special about a new Ilona Andrews book. When I get one in my hands, I feel like a kid a Christmas. That kid has no idea what is under the tree but they know that it is going to be good. And it was good. So very good. This series is one that I treasure so my expectations were really high when I sat down to read this newest installment and every single one of those expectations were met. This story is a gift and I am very glad that the writing pair of Ilona Andrews were able to share it with their fans. This is the fourth full-length book in the Hidden Legacy series which follows the Baylor family. The first three books were told from Nevada's point of view. Catalina took center stage in the novella, Diamond Fire, and kept the lead in this book. I loved Nevada but I am finding that I really like Catalina as well. Catalina is definitely her own person and often approaches things differently than Nevada might. I really enjoyed seeing this wonderful family from a different perspective. I loved the characters in this book. I already loved the members of the Baylor family from the earlier books in the series but I always enjoy getting to know them just a little better. I really liked getting to know Catalina in detail. It was fun to see her use her powers and I have a feeling that we are going to get to see them develop quite a bit in future books. Alessandro was a bit of a mystery. I liked the fact that it was really hard to tell whose side he is on but he always seemed to show up exactly when he was needed. The chemistry between Catalina and Alessandro was pretty much off the charts so I am looking forward to seeing how things progress between the pair in future books. This story was exciting and the mystery was very well done. There is no shortage of action in this story as I have come to expect from the series. The mystery was fairly complex and Catalina was forced to juggle many things while she worked to get to the bottom of things. I really liked that there were a few larger plot points that were left open and I look forward to seeing where things go in future books. I would highly recommend this book to others. This book was everything that I had hoped that it would be and even just a little bit more. I can't wait to read this one again and again! I received a digital review copy of this book from Avon Books via NetGalley / Edelweiss.

    5 Star Sapphire Flames

    Baylor House Prime, Catalina Baylor has been afraid to use her unique powers, but she will risk her reputation and safety to help her friend unravel the mystery when her friend’s mother and sister are murdered. Powerful forces are at work behind the scenes including Alessandro, her teenage crush and his motives are unclear, but he’s drawn to Catalina like a moth to flame. She will have to test the limits of her extraordinary powers, but doing so may cost her both her house and her heart. The Hidden Legacies continue in House Baylor as Catalina steps up to the plate and becomes the Head of the House and in this astonishingly powerful book, she shows readers that she is more than capable of being as ruthless as she needs to be. Readers loved Nevada and her die hard protection of her family and everything they had and they can’t help but smile in eager anticipation to discover if Catalina has what it takes. Well, the story starts off with excitement and continues to be a non-stop buffet of action, suspense, gripping emotions and snarky wit. And to spice things up even more, Catalina and Alessandro have a push- pull relationship full of sizzling chemistry and readers just know that they would be great together but this relationship has quite a few obstacles standing in its path, not the least of is just where Alessandro stands on the whole good or bad issue. This fast paced plots keeps readers hanging on to every word with lots of thrilling suspense, adrenaline pumping action and extraordinary magical battles that has readers’ eyes flaring wide open and gasps escaping in amazement as Catalina asks one question to many and finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of danger and deadly assassins. There’s no way to put this powerful, heart-pounding read full life altering twists down once they have begun.
