SnoopyDoo's Book Reviews

I’m a stay at home mom of two little monsters….  Ummm kids and I love to read and coffee runs through my veins . I read pretty much a little of everything but I tend to like fantasy the most. I blame Sarah J Maas who got me stated into the fantasy genre...but to be honest I read most of everything and it just depends what I’m in the mood for. I also read a lot of YA. Don’t judge ….lol

When I’m not reading I love to spend time with the family of course, I also like to watch TV and love to find new shows to binge. Gaming is another thing I like to do and is easy to get me sucked into a game for hours or even days.  Don’t even get me started on Lego games ……addictive …..lol

So as you can see I’m like all over the place but reading is always the thing that I come back to. It helps me relax and lets me jumps on so many new exciting worlds.

I love to meet new people who share the love for book as I do and in my many years of reading and reviewing I met some truly awesome people. Which honestly is the best part about the book word…..meeting so many new and lovely people.

I’m not in any way a professional reviewer. I just like to read books and share my personal opinion with other book lovers.

Review: Sapphire Flames (Hidden Legacy #4) by Ilona Andrews

Sapphire Flames (Hidden Legacy #4) -  Ilona Andrews

 

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews comes an enthralling new trilogy set in the Hidden Legacy world, where magic means power, and family bloodlines are the new currency of society…

In a world where magic is the key to power and wealth, Catalina Baylor is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, and the Head of her House. Catalina has always been afraid to use her unique powers, but when her friend’s mother and sister are murdered, Catalina risks her reputation and safety to unravel the mystery.

But behind the scenes powerful forces are at work, and one of them is Alessandro Sagredo, the Italian Prime who was once Catalina’s teenage crush. Dangerous and unpredictable, Alessandro’s true motives are unclear, but he’s drawn to Catalina like a moth to a flame.

To help her friend, Catalina must test the limits of her extraordinary powers, but doing so may cost her both her House–and her heart.

 

4.5★

I saw mixed reviews about this book, so I was a bit worried but I’m happy to report that I ended up really loving this book.

I always liked Catalina, but there was always just so much we knew about her. Now that we know her better and learn more about I love her even more. Sometimes I feel bad for her though. It always seems like someone has to carry all the baggage and responsibilities for the house, and this time it is Catalina. Even though most is divided to some other members of the family a majority is falling on her.  I love how she grows throughout just this book and can’t wait to see what else she can do.

I have to be honest I was not a fan of Alessandro and first, but I just fell in love with him over the course of the book. Like Catalina we discover there are more sites to him and each comes on when needed. But my favorite was the Alessandro when he was with her. There are still some secrets about him and while I have a feeling I know what we will have to wait for at least one more book to find out what they are.

Of course we have the rest of Family Baylor that we know and love. All except Nevada, she and Rogan are out of the country but we do hear from them. We meet some new(ish) people and also see some of our other favorites again.

One of my personal favorites also comes back and I’m a little sad that we didn’t get all that much from him and really hope we see more of him in future books. Augustine M.  Yes. I know he is not really a good guy, but I really liked him and wish some day we will get a book about him.

There were some new things to the series or some not so talked about yet stuff. There were a few things I was not so sure about or that were a bit weird if not even a bit over so top but overall I loved it.

We get the action, suspense and plenty of humor we are used to with the Andrews team, there were a few times I laughed way to hard.  The romance was there but not as much as I thought for a book marked romance, but I’m personally okay with that. But if you’re looking with a book with lots and lots of sexy times, this book is not that….. At least not yet ;)

Overall great book, can’t wait for the next one. I rate it 4.5★
