Hidden flames

Sapphire Flames (Hidden Legacy, #4)Sapphire Flames by Ilona Andrews
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

New trilogy in the Hidden Legacy universe. Set three years after the first trilogy, told from the POV of Nevada‘s sister Catalina.

While it is probably intended as a stand-alone, there is very little explanation of what has happened so far or in terms of world building. For newcomers I think it would be best to start with the first trilogy, for a better grasp of this world.

Catalina sounds very much like Nevada, almost interchangeable besides their differing kinds of magic. Alessandro is pretty one-dimensional at first, but gets a bit more interesting in the course of the book. The romance is barely there though. I guess that part will get more intense in the next two books.

Nevada only appears in a few brief phone calls, Rogan is absent and the rest of the family is pretty much in the sidelines.

As always, good action sequences. Good tension, entertaining, rarely a dull moment. A must-read for fans. Made me think of the Edge series.

5 stars? Or just 4 stars? Can‘t make up my mind… the story in the first book of the series was more interesting…

And now the long wait for the next book.
