But first
The fist I’ve read from Ilona Andrews, and this won’t be the last! With everything I love in a story: action, drama, characters to befriend and just the right amount of backstory to help build a reader’s connection to those characters, the fun was never-ending. Having not read the first in this series, I was worried about missing pieces of the story, or walking away with questions. Andrews answered all of the possible questions in resolutions and information, without making it feel overwhelming: and I felt confident enough in the world that was built and the ongoing progression of the plot to feel as if I missed nothing but the pleasure of diving into this world from the beginning.
Nevada is a wonderful heroine – brave, determined and developing skills that are little short of remarkable. Working out her own place in this world, as well as her relationship with / to Connor is constantly in flux, and the whole relationship is bundled into a two steps forward three steps back series of circumstances, often mixed with danger and action, complicated by the fact that, essentially he is her boss.
And Connor “Mad” Rogan is just marvelous. One of those people who at first glance are just scary badass, but look a bit deeper and you find a heart of gold, honorable and upright, determined to protect what he sees as his. And they are his – as leader of the Primes, he keenly feels any affront as a personal attack – and responds in kind. Between the action, threats and wonderful moments of romance, Andrews added secondary characters and humor that added depth and a richness to the story that would have otherwise been a very tense, if wholly enjoyable read. Mixing in secondary characters (Bug most notably) and adding the humor kept the story balanced, just when the tension became too much a laugh, a new character or even a bit of romance kept me engaged and intrigued, turning the pages faster and faster. A wonderful read that had me grabbing the first in the series, and checking out the backlist for Ilona Andrews for more great reads.

The Hidden Legacy series by #1
New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews continues as Nevada and Rogan navigate a world where magic is the norm…and their relationship burns hot
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 …
