Burn for Me (Hidden Legacy)
In this new series from Ilona Andrews feisty detective Nevada Baylor is forced to take on a suicide mission to bring in a psychotic master of fire. In order to complete her mission and survive she is force to team up with another overwhelmingly powerful and ruthless magic user, Connor “Mad” Rogan.
The writing duo that makes up Ilona Andrews did a fabulous job world building for this new series and put together an amazing crew of characters. Readers won’t be able to resist Nevada’s spunk, sarcasm and vulnerability wrapped into one delightful package. Throw in her cast of quirky family members and readers will fall in love.
The story itself sucks the reader in and keeps rolling at a fast clip. The one sticking point that keeps this from being a perfect read is Mad Rogan himself. Nevada’s almost immediate and undeniable attraction to Rogan is a bit disturbing as he comes across as a true sociopath with only a tiny smidge that makes him seem redeemable. It would be helpful to have even the slightest bit more hint that Rogan can overcome his past horrific behavior. Still, this is an exciting read and promising new series.
