Book Review: Wildfire by Ilona Andrews

Author: Ilona Andrews
Series: Hidden Legacy (Book 3)
Publication: Avon (July 25, 2017)

Description: From Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times bestselling author, the thrilling conclusion to her Hidden Legacy series, as Nevada and Rogan grapple with a power beyond even their imagination…

Nevada Baylor can’t decide which is more frustrating—harnessing her truthseeker abilities or dealing with Connor “Mad” Rogan and their evolving relationship. Yes, the billionaire Prime is helping her navigate the complex magical world in which she’s become a crucial player—and sometimes a pawn—but she also has to deal with his ex-fiancée, whose husband has disappeared, and whose damsel-in-distress act is wearing very, very thin.

Rogan faces his own challenges, too, as Nevada’s magical rank has made her a desirable match for other Primes. Controlling his immense powers is child’s play next to controlling his conflicting emotions. And now he and Nevada are confronted by a new threat within her own family. Can they face this together? Or is their world about to go up in smoke?

My Thoughts: This third Hidden Legacy novel has Nevada looking for the missing husband of the ex-fiance of her love Connor Rogan. It also has her trying to find a way to keep her family safe from her father's mother who is the only Prime in her house and who wants to annex Nevada and her sisters. Another plot thread concerns the conspiracy to destabilize Houston in order to set up a new way of governing the Houses. Still another plot thread involves Nevada's relationship with Connor "Mad" Rogan.

All of these various plot threads twisted and intertwined in an action-packed story that I couldn't put down. Nevada is a strong, smart woman who knows what she wants out of life. She is fiercely protective of her family and those she loves. Rogan is a wonderfully tortured hero who frightens and overwhelms most people by Nevada can stand up to him. I liked the way they tried to take care of each other and especially that they were sensitive to each others' feelings and needs.

I liked learning more about what powers Nevada's younger sisters and cousins have and how they came to get them. I also liked the strong relationships in Nevada's family.

I liked the world building in this book. Both the magical powers and political maneuvering were well-developed. The ending leaves room for another book and I would love it if the author's were able to continue writing stories in this world.

Favorite Quote:
If Sherwood decided to stonewall me and Cornelius, Rogan would come in handy. It was one thing to shut out Baylor Investigative Agency and a Significant of a minor House. It was another thing to say no to Mad Rogan.

I pretended to mull it over. "Promise not to break any buildings."

He gave me his most polite dragon smile. "I promise."
I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
