Catalina Baylor is looking forward to wearing her maid of honor dress and watching her older sister walk down the aisle. Then the wedding planner gets escorted off the premises, the bride’s priceless tiara disappears, and Rogan's extensive family overruns his mother’s home. Someone is cheating, someone is lying, and someone is plotting murder.

To make this wedding happen, Catalina will have to do the thing she fears most: use her magic. But she’s a Baylor and there’s nothing she wouldn't do for her sister's happiness. Nevada will have her fairy tale wedding, even if Catalina has to tear the mansion apart brick by brick to get it done.

These are my favorite authors and I am so excited this series is continuing. I preordered this on Kindle and audio, as I have done for the entire Hidden Legacy series.  I read this but have not listened yet.  I have one complaint – it’s too short! The truth is I would never complain; I’m so thrilled to have another story.

Diamond Fire is a transition between the Nevada / Rogan books and the new ones which will feature Catalina.  While the story is about Nevada’s wedding, the point of view is Catalina’s.  In addition to the wedding, we are getting Catalina’s thought process now she has graduated high school and her plans for her life. We learn about her talent and what she knows and doesn’t. There are plenty of layers to keep things interesting.

The plot and dialogue are smart and funny, which is normal for Ilona Andrews. I practically purr with anticipation and joy when I sit down with one of their books. Reading this was a brilliant moment in a hectic time of my life. Catalina’s story will be a trilogy with one book each year starting in 2019. I can hardly wait!

Mrs. Rogan wanted to know if there was any progress on finding Sealight. There wasn’t, so I told her we were working on it. Rogan wanted to know if I was okay. I wasn’t, so I told him I was fine.


“I found out some things about your family which you probably should know. They’re unpleasant.”

“I’ve known that for years.”

“No, I meant the things I found out were unpleasant.”

Catalina and Rogan


About Ilona Andrews

“Ilona Andrews” is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.)

Gordon and Ilona currently reside in Texas with their two children and many dogs and cats.

They have co-authored several bestselling series, including the #1 NYT bestselling urban fantasy of Kate Daniels, rustic fantasy of the Edge, paranormal romance of Hidden Legacy, and Innkeeper Chronicles, which they post as a free weekly serial.

  1. I love this team’s writing too – the Innkeeper Chronicles are one of my favourite fantasy series… Thank you for a great review, Anne:)

    • They did. I love her character but I can’t help but wish for more Arabella. It makes sense though as Catalina is the next oldest and the next Prime. I am excited for everything they write.
