Review: Diamond Fire by Ilona Andrews

Reviewed by Jen

You can never go wrong with an Ilona Andrews book! I loved the initial trilogy in the Hidden Legacy series for a ton of reasons, but mostly because of the main couple, Rogan and Nevada. Sadly, their primary story is over, but the series lives on, switching focus to Nevada’s younger sister, Catalina. And this story serves as a changing of the guards, beginning first in Nevada’s POV, then switching to Catalina’s, and I’m happy to say I have no doubt the middle Baylor sister will deliver as a lead.

The story surrounds Rogan and Nevada’s wedding. Let me just say how much I loved his mom. Mrs. Rogan was an unexpected treat, with a cool backstory and a will of steel. She decides she wants a wedding that includes her entire family, which is no small feat. Half of them are money grubbers, nursing a serious sense of entitlement. We switch to Catalina’s perspective when one of them steals the family wedding tiara and she needs to figure out who did it before her sister walks down the aisle.

It was so much fun to get into Catalina’s head. Her siren power is so awesome. All the Baylor powers are unique and so different from the standard UF fare. (And yes, I know the series is PNR, but there is no romance here.) We do get to see hints of what may be between her and Alessandro, even though he’s not really a player in this installment. I loved watching Catalina dip into her gifts and not only use them, but own them, perhaps for the very first time. I hope Mrs. Rogan continues to play a part in helping her

There’s not a lot of time to get super-emotionally invested, but the story moves and the characters are engaging. Shout out to the supporting cast, like the poison seeker and other members of the Baylor family. I can’t wait to see where the series goes next!
