Nevada Baylor has a unique and secret skill—she knows when people are lying—and she's used that magic (along with plain, hard work) to keep her colorful and close-knit family's detective agency afloat. But her new case pits her against the shadowy forces that almost destroyed the city of Houston once before, bringing Nevada back into contact with Connor "Mad" Rogan.
Rogan is a billionaire Prime—the highest rank of magic user—and as unreadable as ever, despite Nevada’s “talent.” But there’s no hiding the sparks between them. Now that the stakes are even higher, both professionally and personally, and their foes are unimaginably powerful, Rogan and Nevada will find that nothing burns like ice …
Nevada Baylor and Mad Rogan are back for an action-packed story filled with magic, bad guys and Nevada finding out more about herself, her family and her magic. Her latest case has her trying to find Cornelius Harrison’s wife’s killer. The case wasn’t normally a case she’d take on but Cornelius has nowhere else to go and nobody else will help him so of course, Nevada is going to help. She dives right into the case and finds herself brought face to face with the guy that hasn’t called in months, the guy she can’t seem to forget….Connor “Mad” Rogan of House Rogan.
I’m really digging the suspense in these books. There’s a lot going on in each book with a bigger story unraveling in the background and Ilona Andrews do such a great job of pulling on each string, keeping the reader hanging until the dramatic finish in the end. I was invested in what was going on from beginning to end, even though Nevada’s stubbornness was a bit much in this book. I still love the hell out of her but I thought she fought stupid shit for too long in this book. She gets over it and so did I but that was a bit of a downer in an otherwise fantabulous book.
The chemistry between Rogan and Nevada is so much fun that I read this one in no time at all. Their bickering and their ability to put all of their differences aside and have each others backs in a fight make this series pretty special for me. This book was fun and it was entertaining with a cast of characters that jump right off the pages and into your heart. I can’t get enough of this series and I’m sad that I only have one more to go before I’m done. 🙁
I’m really interested in seeing more of Catalina, Arabella, Leon and even Bern. I’m itching to see what their powers are and how powerful they’ll be when they come into their own. Leon is such a fun character and I love how normal these teenagers are. They’re into the things that teenagers these days are into. Their selfie game is on point and the drama that they’re always in the middle of had me laughing all over the place.
I also really enjoyed getting to know Cornelius and his daughter Matilda. All of Rogan’s people are great, too. Seriously, I love them all except the bad guys and Nevada’s grandmother on her father’s side. There’s a lot to love in this book and I want everyone to read this book and love it as much as I did. So good!
