    Hugh is not evil, who knew...

    I loved this book and am hooked on this new series. I have to admit as evil as Hugh has been in the past I have always found him charismatic. I really liked that Elara is a strong, intelligent woman who not only is extremely powerful magically but also can hold her own in a fight. I liked that she doesn’t need to be rescued, but needs Hugh’s help and is willing to work with him to protect her people. The story was not only action packed but had strong character development. It was also cool to see another side of the Iron Dogs and get to know them as individuals. What I liked most about this series was it didn’t spend time justifying Hugh’s past actions, or positioning him as a victim. There is another series I am a fan of, and one of it’s hero’s long awaited book told of all the atrocities he suffered, much by his family. Then a few years later his brother got a book, and half of it was spent negating the previous book even though the first hero witnessed events first hand. It basically turned a beloved character into a delusional liar to try and make the reader sympathize with the “former villain”. I was afraid this book might do that to, but it does not. Only one event was explained as being misperceived, and the way it was told from Hugh’s perspective it makes perfect sense. I loved that his actions that day weren’t because he was secretly a good guy, it was because torturing someone in that instance did not benefit him. I loved that he stood in his truth and while there were times he apologized for the pain he caused others, he did not apologize for his actions. He was a general and he was at war, he views casualties as unfortunate but a part of fighting. That was driven home because when someone he cared about died he mourned, but he was never driven by vengeance. He is always about playing to win with the big picture in mind. I can’t wait to find out what is up with that castle and what Elara really is. The next book can’t come soon enough.

    Iron and Magic

    Really fun read as all books by Ilona Andrews. Magic, humor, elephants, flawed but sexy hero, snappy dialogue, it has it all! Highly recommend to anyone who likes fantasy, especially urban or military flavor.

    I didn't think it was possible to turn a villain like Hugh D'Ambray into a character that is likeable and whose actions can be understood, but Ilona Andrews has accomplished that feat in a believable way. I can't wait for the next instalment!

    So much fun!

    If you liked Spike on Buffy, you will like Hugh. You don't need to read the Kate Daniels books to appreciate this, but it's even better if you have. Bad guy redemption at its best!

    So much fun. I have read some of the Kate Daniels books, and this was pure joy in a book. Can't wait to read more about Hugh and Elara.
