Review: Wildfire by Ilona Andrews

Publication Date: 7/25/2017
Series: Hidden Legacy #3
Rating:  5 Stars

Official Blurb: 

Just when Nevada Baylor has finally come to accept the depths of her magical powers, she also realizes she’s fallen in love. Connor “Mad” Rogan is in many ways her equal when it comes to magic, but she’s completely out of her elements when it comes to her feelings for him. To make matters more complicated, an old flame comes back into Rogan’s life…

Rogan knows there’s nothing between him and his ex-fiance, Rynda Sherwood. But as Nevada begins to learn more about her past, her power, and her potential future, he knows she will be faced with choices she never dreamed of and the promise of a life spent without him.

As Nevada and Rogan race to discover the whereabouts of Rynda’s kidnapped husband and are forced to confront Nevada’s grandmother, who may or may not have evil motives, these two people must decide if they can trust in each other or allow everything to go up in smoke.

And this is the book where everything hits the fan…

Literally. Jealousy. Betrayal. War. Hard Decisions. Tough Love. Sacrifice.

These and so many more descriptive words could be used to explain this book.  Wildfire is bar none the best book of the series, and that’s not just because of Rogan and Nevada’s continuing relationship. For the first time in a VERY long time, the resurgence of an ex doesn’t involve a knock down, jealous cat fight between two females vying for the same man. THAT MADE this book for me.  Even though their relationship is still a fledging at best, Nevada has all the reassurance that she needs with Rogan. She can see the situation without assumptions and knows where to place her trust. 

On top of that, she has been forced into a corner by a long lost relative, and made to choose between servitude and independence. Though both come with a hefty price tag.  Wildfire is by far the most action packed book with so many fights, deceptions, and massacres that it will fly by as you’re reading it. 

Though originally planned as a trilogy, Wildfire does end very openly and it leaves one to wonder if there will be more of these books to come in the future. I sure hope so because the conclusion still has lingering questions around it, and what seems to be so much more story to tell about these characters.  This can only be the beginning of Rogan, Nevada, and company, and I hope that both authors continue with it!
