#1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews is back with the newest book in the exciting Hidden Legacy series—the thrilling conclusion to her trilogy featuring fierce and beautiful Prime magic user Catalina Baylor.

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.


Ruby Fever is book six in the Hidden Legacy series by Ilona Andrews.

If you haven’t read the series then I recommend you do and you’ll want to start from the beginning. It’s a great Urban Fantasy with lots of action, mystery, amazing world and character building plus a little romance.

Ruby Fever is a non-stop action packed adventure that concludes Catalina and Alessandro’s story ARC. Catalina is the second daughter and took over leading House Baylor in Sapphire Flames, but her story really starts in the novella Diamond Fire.

I loved the prequel, the story, and of course our epilogue. Theirs murder, mayhem, a stressed out spider, a Russian Prince, all the characters we have come to love and enjoy, plus the ever looming battle with Arkan; which comes to a head.

Fans of the Hidden Legacy series will not be disappointed. Much is revealed and questions are answered. Of how glorious the reveals are. I loved it!! We finally learn what Catalina’s black wings mean. Oh My God! And, yes more questions pop up: like will Arabella get her own story? Only the author knows!

As always the Andrews team delivered. So much happens, lives are at stake, and Alessandro and Catalina have to work together along with the Baylor family to keep everyone safe. It’s a roller coaster ride from start to finish.

We are also treated to a wonderful short story at the end called A Happy Goodbye. It’s an adorable short that features a wedding, (not saying who’s), where we learn a little more about everyone and what is happening in their lives. It’s a nice treat and a sweet HEA.

I couldn’t put Ruby Fever down. After I finished I wanted to listen to the audio. I love reading this series, but I also love the audiobooks for it as well. I’m never disappointed when I pick up an Andrews book and I look forward to seeing what comes next.

  1. I loved Nevada’s trilogy and then was so relieved to adore Catalina’s trilogy, too. I’m crossing my fingers for Arabella to get some books.

    • I’m with you on Arabella. I also loved Nevada and ended up enjoy Catalina’s more than I thought I would. She was so shy, but we see her grow into her role as head of House Baylor and into her powers. Thanks for visiting!

  2. Wonderful review – I agree 100%. The storytelling is so amazing and creative. *sigh* I sure hope the authors find it in their hearts to write Arabella’s story.

    • I agree with you. Thanks for visiting and checking out my review.

  3. I love this series. Can’t wait to read this one.

    • I hope you enjoy! Thanks for visiting!

  4. The Andrews said they didn’t find Arabella’s situation compelling enough for her own storyline once. I would swear though I recently read on their website that they are going to write a book featuring Arabella. It wouldn’t be a trilogy, just one book.

    We’ll see what happens.

    • That’s all we can do is wait and see if they write for Arabella or not. I know they aren’t going with a publishing company, so if they do it might be like the Innkeeper Chronicles series. We can only hope, wait and see. Thanks for visiting!

  5. I like Nevada’s storyline more, but I have to finish the series.

    • I like Nevada’s storyline more to thou its hard to compare; because Catalina’s storyline is different. I always liked Arabella and Catalina is/was my least favorite sister in the beginning, but she grew on me. Thanks for visiting!

  6. sounds like a fun one
