2 Bloggers 1 Series - Hidden Legacy #4)


So, it took us some time, but Stormi and I are finally continuing our read of the Hidden Legacy series.  It isn't that we haven't been enjoying them, but there are so many other series we are wrapped up in.  Hopefully this is one we can finish this year as we don't have many more to go.  So, continue on to see how much I enjoyed this one and then hop over to Stormi's at Storm Reads to see her's.

TITLE: Sapphire Dreams (Hidden Legacy #4)
AUTHOR: Ilona Andrews
PUBLISHING DATE: August 17, 2019
SOURCE: Library
PAGES: 359

FROM GOODREADS: 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 Alessandra Sagredo, the Italian Prime who was once Catalina's teenage crush.  Dangerous and unpredictable, Allesandro'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.

MY THOUGHTS:  I'll have to admit that I was a little nervous as this book starts a new arc and we aren't really following ROgan and Nevada anymore.  However, I was also interested in learning more about Catalina and her powers and come on, this is an Ilona Andrews book.  I should have known I have nothing to fear.

It seems like once again House Baylor has bitten off more than they can chew when Catalina agrees to look into the death of a mother and daughter from another house.  Before she knows it, she is fighting for her life and the survival of her house, all the time trying to assure her sister who is out of town with Rogan, that everything is fine.  Luckily for Catalina, even if she won't admit it, Alessandro Sagredo shows up and is somehow involved in everything as well. Catalina isn't sure she can trust him but she really wants to and it doesn't hurt that she has had a crush on the hot Italian Prime for years.

Like the previous books in this series, this one is action-packed almost from beginning to end.  I always have a fun time reading this author's works and when finished, am always ready to jump into the next one.  My only complainant is that I do believe a lot of Andrew's books follow the same formula, except with different characters and situations.  Yet, I really find that doesn't cut down on my overall enjoyment as there are always news monsters to discover and new fights to be fought.  While this is an older series, if you like urban fantasy, and I'm really starting to realize how much I've missed reading this genre, then I highly recommend this series.
