Review: “A Questionable Client” (Kate Daniels #0.5) by Ilona Andrews

This short story takes place prior to any of the novels in the Kate Daniels urban fantasy series. However, reading this story after reading at least the first novel, Magic Bites, works best. “A Questionable Client” tells the story of how Kate first meets one of her informational contacts, a shape-shifter called Saiman. He’s kind ofContinue reading “Review: “A Questionable Client” (Kate Daniels #0.5) by Ilona Andrews”

Review: Diamond Fire (Hidden Legacy #3.5) by Ilona Andrews

This novella picks up where the last book in the Hidden Legacy series leaves off and features a surprise protagonist! As much as I adore Nevada, it was awesome to read a story from the perspective of another member of the Baylor family, and Catalina is fantastic.

Review: WILDFIRE (Hidden Legacy #3) by Ilona Andrews

This was a thrilling conclusion to a major part of the Hidden Legacy story line. Nevada Baylor’s family and her interactions with them are my one of my favorite parts of this series, and it was exciting to see plot progression on that front. For some reason, I had it stuck in my head thatContinue reading “Review: WILDFIRE (Hidden Legacy #3) by Ilona Andrews”

Review: WHITE HOT (Hidden Legacy #2) by Ilona Andrews

This series is a prime example for one of the major rules that applies to book buying: Don’t judge a book based on its cover (or publisher). If you’re already a fan of Ilona Andrews’ other books, there’s absolutely no reason that you won’t also enjoy this series. The romance is there to support andContinue reading “Review: WHITE HOT (Hidden Legacy #2) by Ilona Andrews”

Review: MAGIC BINDS (Kate Daniels #9) by Ilona Andrews

Once again, Ilona Andrews delivers a fast-paced novel with unique characters and plenty of drama and humor. I’m a sucker for a wedding, and we’re quickly approaching Kate and Curran’s (finally!). But Kate’s evil overlord father has set up shop right outside Atlanta, and Kate has bigger things to worry about than dress fittings andContinue reading “Review: MAGIC BINDS (Kate Daniels #9) by Ilona Andrews”

Review: BURN FOR ME (Hidden Legacy #1) by Ilona Andrews

I really try not to be one of those people who judges a book by the cover, but I don’t think there can be any argument that the cover of Burn For Me is about the most romance cover to ever be a romance cover. I don’t care. Buy the book anyway.

Review: SWEEP IN PEACE (Innkeeper Chronicles #2) by Ilona Andrews

This particular collection of books by writing team Ilona Andrews is published as serial novels on their website. When I read the first book in the Innkeeper Chronicles, I was really afraid that it was going to be a meandering mess. However, I ate up the first book (Clean Sweep) and was happy to come backContinue reading “Review: SWEEP IN PEACE (Innkeeper Chronicles #2) by Ilona Andrews”

Review: SMALL MAGICS by Ilona Andrews

Favorite story: Because I’m always thrilled to learn more about Kate’s protege, I was delighted to read “Magic Tests” in this collection. Julie shined in this story, especially because she’s not just a miniature version of Kate. She’s been influenced by all the adults in her life, and it shows in the way she handles interpersonalContinue reading “Review: SMALL MAGICS by Ilona Andrews”

Review: MAGIC STARS by Ilona Andrews

I know that I have about a million favorite things about this series, but two of them are definitely Julie and Derek, the foster kids/proteges of the two main characters. Watching them “grow up” and come into their own skills and powers over the course of the books has been a treat, and it wasContinue reading “Review: MAGIC STARS by Ilona Andrews”

Review: MAGIC GIFTS by Ilona Andrews

This is a fun filler novella that takes place during Ilona Andrews’ novel Gunmetal Magic. Because so much urban fantasy/paranormal romance involves a burgeoning romantic relationship between the main characters, it’s always a treat to stop by and visit Kate and Curran. Especially when they are trying to do cute couple stuff, which always seem toContinue reading “Review: MAGIC GIFTS by Ilona Andrews”
