Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times bestselling author, continues her spellbinding series set in the Hidden Legacy world where magic controls everything...except the hearts of those who wield it. As Prime magic users, Catalina Baylor and her sisters have extraordinary powers--powers their ruthless grandmother would love to control. Catalina can earn her family some protection working as deputy to the Warden of Texas, overseeing breaches of magic law in the state, but that has risks as well. When House Baylor is under attack and monsters haunt her every step, Catalina is forced to rely on handsome, dangerous Alessandro Sagredo, the Prime who crushed her heart.  The nightmare that Alessandro has fought since childhood has come roaring back to life, but now Catalina is under threat. Not even his lifelong quest for revenge will stop him from keeping her safe, even if every battle could be his last. Because Catalina won't rest until she stops the use of the illicit, power-granting serum that's tearing their world apart. … (més)

Delightful! I’ve been waiting for this one and it did not disappoint. Picks up right where the last let off, and the action doesn’t slow down.

Whew! Blaze is right. Catalina and Alessandro are back and someone call the fire department. I’m always impressed by the way Ilona Andrews manages to carry sizzling sexual tension with the same couple through multiple books before things “happen” and once again they carry it off here, with the previous book, where they worked together, having ended with Alessandro having abruptly left. Catalina is pissed. But when she gets an important assignment involving a murder with multiple prime magic users as suspects, and her family is threatened, he is assigned to guard her. Also, the person suspected of threatening her is the man who killed his father. So you could say it’s personal.

As always with this author team, the world building is superb. The details are vivid and the battle scenes are some of the best in fantasy writing. I particularly love the way they can be talking shop about the current monster problem and break off into a rant about Houston traffic or Mom’s no guns at the table rule. Their sense of humor is what makes the book hilarious.

Did NOT see the surprise about Alessandro and the pauper prince coming. Wow! Also, that epilogue… was that Victoria Tremain coming to kidnap Nevada’s baby? (maybe I read it totally wrong—not a lot of character names) Am I going to be freaking out now for an entire year waiting for book 6?

Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader.

I’m a fan of this series, but admittedly I prefer Nevada and Connor over Catalina and Alessandro. Even so, this was a lot of fun to read and I was fascinated by the Abyss. What I appreciated most though, was that Andrews didn’t drag out the romantic interest story line; I expected another ‘Oh no! Will the couple ever find true happiness?’ cliffhangers, but instead it was all wrapped up rather neatly a little past midway. Nice. This allowed me to more fully enjoy the actual plot of the story, which involved a lot of fighting and magic using, which I prefer to the romance.

As a bonus, Nevada and Connor played a part in this story, although it was much too small, and a lot of backstory was filled in about Nevada’s split from the family.

All up it was a fun story I was disappointed to see come to an end. I hope there will be more with Catalina as the central character if only because I’m hugely intrigued by the Warden role and Linus. ( )

Attempt #2 was a fail. I think I have to admit to myself that I don’t want this much violence and weapon-talk right now.

Just a few quick thoughts. Full review to come!

You need to read the series in order. Continues an overall ARC besides each story have it's own exciting mystery stuff. I had trouble with this one! I'm conflicted.

Catalina - I liked her and I didn't. What bothered me in this one was the self internal moulages of stress and woo is me I can't have him. The first time was ok, but then by the second I was over it and frustrated. She does have points in the story where she shows us that she is smart, intelligent, and thinking like a Prime, but then she has these moments in her head that drag. I get that Catalina's personality is in flux. It's just hard to read about someone in this position when it's unclear on who they are and that a lot of the important moments happen off the screen and we just heard bits about them.

Alessandro - He's the typical sexy Prime. What we learn about him and his family was a surprise. I don't really feel anything for him. He's a powerful prime.

Romance - As for the love interest. It's instant. I never felt anything blooming between them. They spend no time talking, getting to know each other and relating to each other. It just doesn't have the development feel as (Kate and Curran) or (Nevada and Rogan) have. These two spend most of the series apart and only come together to defeat the bad stuff in Catalina's books. The romance just doesn't have that great development feel.

I guess what I'm feeling on this book is that it's more teen style then an adult romance. I liked the plot, but not the romance.

Rated: 3.5 Stars ( )
