Urban Fantasy Novel Review: Wildfire by Ilona Andrews

Wildfire by Ilona Andrews (Hidden Legacy #3)


Synopsis from Goodreads
Just when Nevada Baylor has finally come to accept the depths of her magical powers, she also realizes she’s fallen in love. Connor “Mad” Rogan is in many ways her equal when it comes to magic, but she’s completely out of her elements when it comes to her feelings for him. To make matters more complicated, an old flame comes back into Rogan’s life…

Rogan knows there’s nothing between him and his ex-fiance, Rynda Sherwood. But as Nevada begins to learn more about her past, her power, and her potential future, he knows she will be faced with choices she never dreamed of and the promise of a life spent without him.

As Nevada and Rogan race to discover the whereabouts of Rynda’s kidnapped husband and are forced to confront Nevada’s grandmother, who may or may not have evil motives, these two people must decide if they can trust in each other or allow everything to go up in smoke.

One thing for sure, I'll be re-reading this in the near future as I gulped it down way too fast instead of savouring.

Explosive. Snarky. Poignant. Exhilarating. These are just some of the suitable epitomes for Ilona Andrews' books. I honestly can't get enough of them, and this series is one of the finest in urban fantasy, from my point of view.

It all comes to a head in Wildfire. We finally have a clearer view of the scale of the conspiracy Rogan and Nevada stumbled upon. Nevada has to step into the limelight and assume the position of the Prime, which, I have to admit, suits her like a second skin.

Her family is absolutely amazing and such an integral part of her personality it's impossible to separate them from her.

Even her evil grandmother pulls the same trick we see in Kate Daniels's interactions with her father. She is evil, ruthless and cold, but at her core she is proud of Nevada, and it makes it that little bit harder to hate her.

Rogan and Nevada's interactions are high-octane and filled with electric tension. They are just such powerful, larger than life personalities the only way for them to function together is constant compromise, which is an alien concept for them both. Not surprisingly, I absolutely adored them!

Wildfire is full of delicious action, the trials, the constant battles, the mind games. Even if it feels like a rabbit pulled out of the hat from time to time, in the end everything is clear.

If you just finished White Hot, stop and catch your breath. You will not have this opportunity once you start Wildfire.

Verdict: it was freaking awesome. I'm a crazed fan. Read it!

В чем я абсолютна уверена, так это в том, что я буду перечитывать "Дикий Огонь" в ближайшем будущем. Я проглотила эту книгу слишком быстро, а хотелось бы ее посмаковать.

Взрывно. Остро. Проникновенно. Захватывающе дух. Это одни из нескольких эпитетов, которые приходят на ум по отношению к творчеству Илоны Эндрюс. Эта серия, по моему мнению, в особенности одна из лучших в городском фэнтези.

Сюжетные линии в "Диком Огне" по большей части доходят до кульминации. Нам показана более ясная картина обширного заговора, посреди которого оказались Роган и Невада. Невада вынуждена принять на себя роль Примы, мантия которой сидит на ней совершенно естественно. Ее семья - просто шикарна, и я уже саму героиню без них не представляю, настолько они - часть ее идентичности.

Даже ее бабка, Виктория Тремэйн, проделывает тот же трюк, что и главный злодей в Кейт Дэниэлс. Она хоть и холодная, безжалостная злодейка, но внучкой своей гордится, поэтому ненавидеть ее нам не так уж и легко.

Отношения между Роганом и Невадой взрывоопасны и наполнены многослойным напряжением, настолько они мощные, больше чем жизнь личности. Им невозможно быть вместе без постоянного компромисса, к чему не тот ни другая не привыкли. Я их просто обожаю!

Короче, книга полна наивкуснейшего экшна, Отбора, постоянных битв, тонких манипуляций. Так, бывает и рояль в кустах, но таковым он только кажется, пока не появится вполне логическое объяснение.

Если вы только закончили "Раскаленные Добела", остановитесь и переведите дыхание. Оно вам понадобится когда вы не сможете оторваться от "Дикого Огня".

Короче, офигительно. Я - дикий фанат серии. Читать надо!

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
