Review – Ruby Fever


Ruby Fever


Hidden Legacy #6


Ilona Andrews


Urban Fantasy


An escaped spider, the unexpected arrival of an Imperial Russian Prince, the senseless assassination of a powerful figure, a shocking attack on the supposedly invincible Warden of Texas, Catalina’s boss… And it’s only Monday.

Within hours, the fate of Houston—not to mention the House of Baylor—now rests on Catalina, who will have to harness her powers as never before. But even with her fellow Prime and fiancé Alessandro Sagredo by her side, she may not be able to expose who’s responsible before all hell really breaks loose.


5stars rating

The last Catalina book… I’m not sure if I want to cry or be happy…


The head of the Assembly murdered, Linus attacked and a Russian Prince on their doorstep… And the day has only just begun. Oh boy *rubs hands in obvious glee*
This is the final part of Catalina’s story, so be ready for a lot of things to happen and many loose ends to be tied up. As always, the scenes and environments were superbly written and detailed enough for perfect immersion.

Character development:

Catalina is Acting Warden, she just discovered a new aspect of her power (which is awesome but scary as hell) and has a House war finally closing in.
Alessandro is running himself ragged between all the jobs he has taken on. He needs sleep and to be with his woman… and not take calls in Italian about who knows what…
They both have their work cut out for them, and it won’t be easy. But then again, we’re talking about the Baylors, so that is pretty much a given.
Oh, and I nearly forgot about our Russian prince!! I hope we get to see more of him (and his family) in future instalments 😀 😀
The whole cast is so well-written, it’s pretty insane. Every time I read a book by the author, I’m blown away by the level of skill. Every one of the cast matters, they don’t care if it’s a small role or the leading role. That character will have depth, hopes and fears and purpose. /bow

Pacing & Flow:

The book, nay, the series is like my favourite latte macchiato with caramel, only the caramel is some fae substance and addicting. It just doesn’t let you go until you reached the end, and you’re stuck with a book hangover.

The book itself:

The book was well written with no (noticeable) errors. There is no sex described (if that is important to you).
It has 380 pages, spread over 19 chapters and is told from Catalina’s point of view.

Final Thoughts:

I love this series so much. Each and every book is just sooooo gooood! Superb writing, from scenes and environments to the whole cast. I cannot recommend it enough.
If you like urban fantasy with a dash of romance, and kickass heroines with swoon-worthy men who help them, then this series is one you really need to pick up!
Now let’s all keep our fingers crossed for an Arabella book. We need more Baylor in our lives!
