Urban Fantasy Review: White Hot by Ilona Andrews

White Hot by Ilona Andrews (Hidden Legacy #2)


Egalley thanks to Avon

Synopsis from Goodreads
The Hidden Legacy series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews continues as Nevada and Rogan navigate a world where magic is the norm…and their relationship burns hot

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 …

I've devoured this book as soon as I got my grabby hands on a review copy, and then I had to re-read it again because it was simply delicious.

Ilona and Gordon are just that good at it: the snappy comebacks, the colourful sidekicks, amazing action sequences, and of course larger than life, unbelievably charismatic main characters. Sweeeet Christmas!

In White Hot things heat up so much for Nevada's family, that it's becoming impossible to keep a lid on their secrets anymore.

We get to know surprising things about Baylor heritage and Nevada generally has to toughen up, become more ruthless, which is why of course we fall in love with her alongside Rogan even more. At the same time, she doesn't lose this whole defender of the lost causes look because this is who she is at her core. She and her family stand up for those who need it the most.

Rogan becomes more human and opens up to Nevada much more. There are even some very romantic ( for Rogan) moments. *grins*

The plot is intricate and keeps you guessing until the end as to why and how, while the culprits are mostly known to us.

The action and magical battles are absolutely explosive, with a great contrast between Rogan's tactical team professionalism and Nevada's family chaotic, outrageous risk taking which leaves everyone flabbergasted.

I laughed and I waited with baited breath to see where the plot would lead us, and I am, as usual, in absolute awe of Andrewses' talent for storytelling. White Hot is sizzling, grab it while you can! Highly recommended.

Я проглотила эту книгу как только копия для рецензии попала мне в руки, а потом перечитала ее опять, настолько она чудесна!

Илона и Гордон ну просто безумно хороши, и каждой книгой оттачивают свое мастерство все больше: от острого диалога, живописных второстепенных персонажей до невероятных моментов экшна и, конечно, безумно харизматичных главных героев.

В "Раскаленном Добела" события доходят до такого кипения, что Невада не в состоянии больше скрывать секреты своей семьи и избегать любопытных глаз.

Мы узнаем любопытные детали о Бэйлорах. Неваде приходится стать более беспощадной и решительной по отношениию к тем, кто желает нанести ее семье вред, что, в свою очередь, только побуждает Рогана влюбиться в нее еще сильнее.

Сам Роган становится более человечным и даже (для Рогана) кое-где романтичным. Он и Невада постепенно вырабатывают динамику пары.

Сюжет хитроумен и деликатен, побуждая нас до последнего гадать почему и как, несмотря на то, что личности злодеев известны.

Экшн и магические перепалки абсолютно взрывные, с задорным контрастом между военным профессионализмом тактической команды Рогана и экстравагантной, хаотичной безрассудностью семейки Невады.

Я смеялась и ждала с затаенным дыханием, чем же эта книга закончится. И как всегда я в диком восторге от таланта четы Эндрюсов. Это ж как можно так писать?!

В общем, для меня одна из лучших книг года. Очень рекомендую.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
