OK declaring officially, the Hidden Legacy series with Nevada Baylor trilogy is just moving into my all-time favorite lists and I am gonna read them again and again whenever I feel low and out. Now that the itch to complete the series is calmed for the time being as we get to the end of Nevada’s and Rogan’s journey, I hope I can get back to reading my pending ARCs and other library copies without this constant nagging in my mind to pick up another book in the series.
Wildfire begins with Nevada facing a major problem, her evil grandmother is out to get her family and her sisters, and truthfully, evil is a mild word for that woman, the extent of her cruelty to maintain her power and family line is beyond creepy. Well that said, the conspiracy that has been like a common thread running in the 3 books climbs up another notch and becomes more dangerous than ever. The authors have done a wonderful job with that, jumping the danger factor from mild in Burn For Me to intense in White Hot to the extreme fiasco in Wildfire. We are yet to determine the identity of Caesar, the mastermind behind the conspiracy to take over Houston and I am guessing it would follow in Catalina’s and Arabella’s story. I would have also loved for Rogan’s cousin to be dealt with for her treachery in this story, but it is probably worth the wait!
The magical abilities of Arabella are completely exposed and Leon comes to his form in full force helping Nevada and her mom in an all-out fight to save their city. That is another thing that the authors have captured amazingly, it is just not the Baylor family but even the Harrison family and Sherwood family allies with Rogan and Nevada, and the climax scene with all of them pitching in one way or another in a mini war was EPIC.
All the characters have been fleshed out well, so much that even the Book Keeper and Michael became interesting and I wanted to know more about their magic powers. I was immensely happy with the absence of a love triangle misunderstanding in the story coz I have had enough of that plotline, Nevada is at most times confident of Rogan but slightly insecure at Rynda’s obvious ‘damsel in distress’ attempts, which felt normal and real. Rogan is equally MAD Rogan and Connor Rogan and it was exciting to see how he holds himself in check without coming across as an overbearing idiot giving Nevada her space and encouraging her to achieve her full potential as a truth seeker.
Now, I am baffled as to why no one has converted this into a TV series? Hidden Legacy has enough and more for a good show on the big screen what with the all the different types of magic being explored and the lovable laugh-out-loud moments, Arabella’s magic testing is a riot, and Cornelius using a frying pan against a summoner, Nevada and all the hugs from animals are just a few of those excellent scenes where I shed tears with all my crazy laughing. The word-building by the authors in all the 3 books deserves a pat on the back, it is magically real and enthralling.
C’mon AVON, I am saying this again, the whole series needs complete rework on the cover images.
Review for Burn For Me (Hidden Legacy #1)
Review for White Hot (Hidden Legacy #2)
Nevada Baylor can’t decide which is more frustrating—harnessing her truthseeker abilities or dealing with Connor “Mad” Rogan and their evolving relationship. Yes, the billionaire Prime is helping her navigate the complex magical world in which she’s become a crucial player—and sometimes a pawn—but she also has to deal with his ex-fiancée, whose husband has disappeared, and whose damsel-in-distress act is wearing very, very thin.
Rogan faces his own challenges, too, as Nevada’s magical rank has made her a desirable match for other Primes. Controlling his immense powers is child’s play next to controlling his conflicting emotions. And now he and Nevada are confronted by a new threat within her own family. Can they face this together? Or is their world about to go up in smoke?
