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.) They have co-authored two New York Times and USA Today bestselling series-the urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and the romantic urban fantasy of The Edge-and are working on the next volumes for both. They live in Texas with their two children and many dogs and cats.
Our customer reviews
Burn for Me (Hidden Legacy #1) by Ilona Andrews Detective Nevada Baylor was assigned a mission that was destined to fail; apprehend Prime Adam Pierce, a high-ranking magic user who can set anything on fire, and return him to his family. Unfortunately, Nevada is not the only person interested in finding Pierce, Connor Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢??MadÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢?? Rogan, one of the most powerful known mages, also has an interest in PierceÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢??s capture. Nevada is a worthy heroine. She is selfless, considering her familyÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢??s needs above her own. She is brave and intelligent. She has kept her gift a secrete because she does not want to be used by others. I love her humor and comments. Connor Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢??MadÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢?? Rogan is a force to be reckoned with. He is a good business man and powerful mage. He is a bit arrogant, but itÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢??s understandable why. I love that Nevada doesnÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢??t cower to Mad Rogan. They have an interesting dynamic that I am looking forward to seeing evolve in future novels. Ilona AndrewsÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢?? character development is exceptional. I not only loved the primary characters, I enjoyed the secondary characters. Adam Pierce was an intriguing bad guy. NevadaÃ???Ã??Ã?Â¢??s cousin, Bern, is smart and loyal. Grandma Frida is great; most definitely not your typical grandma. The plot was clever and carefully thought out. I love the world the authors created. Burn for Me is a fantastic start to the Hidden Legacy Series. I will anxiously be awaiting the next book in the series expected to come out in 2015.
