Review: Diamond Fire

39320167

Nevada Frida Baylor and Connor Ander Rogan cordially invite you to join their wedding celebration. Summoning, weather manipulation, and other magical activities strictly forbidden.

Catalina Baylor is looking forward to wearing her maid of honor dress and watching her older sister walk down the aisle. Then the wedding planner gets escorted off the premises, the bride’s priceless tiara disappears, and Rogan’s extensive family overruns his mother’s home. Someone is cheating, someone is lying, and someone is plotting murder.

To make this wedding happen, Catalina will have to do the thing she fears most: use her magic. But she’s a Baylor and there’s nothing she wouldn’t do for her sister’s happiness. Nevada will have her fairy tale wedding, even if Catalina has to tear the mansion apart brick by brick to get it done.

Its here!

Ilona AndrewsDiamond Fire was the introduction novella of Catalina Baylor as our next heroine of the Hidden Legacy series in the upcoming trilogy.

As you know, Nevada and Rogan are getting married which will be the wedding of the year in the world of Primes. Though there’s one problem, Nevada has gotten rid of the wedding planners when they do not meet her standards for her wedding. So Catalina along with Arabella are planning the wedding for her. Now everything is marching well. That is until Rogan’s mother informs Catalina that the heirloom tiara which Nevada was going to wear on her wedding has disappeared. The suspects are members of the Rogan family but from the side of the Rogan’s mother. Now tasked with finding it, Catalina has to be careful when investigating so Nevada won’t find out. However, that’s easier said then done when many of the family members have their own secrets to hide along with secret agendas.

Overall, while Diamond Fire was just a novella, it was a great way to introduce Catalina as the main POV and set her up for her upcoming trilogy. This novella was very well done because as you read it, you can see that Catalina is not another Nevada. They are opposites of each other. Unlike Nevada, Catalina has never been comfortable of using her Siren power. You can’t blame her since her power has at times lead to people becoming obsessed with her since she was young. As a result, Catalina has had to repress using her magic to avoid scenes like that. However, as shown in Diamond Fire, Catalina slowly comes out of her self seclusion and really proves herself that she’s just as brave and her sister. Personally, I cannot wait to see her again in the trilogy and see how much she has grown since Diamond Fire. I’m sure we’re going to enjoy that Catalina  just as this Catalina.
