Review & Giveaway - - Ruby Fever

Ruby Fever
by Ilona Andrews
Hidden Legacy - Book 6
Publisher: Avon
Release Date: August 23, 2022
Reviewed by PJ

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 fiancĂ© Alessandro Sagredo by her side, she may not be able to expose who’s responsible before all hell really breaks loose.

PJ's Thoughts:

It was worth the wait. So worth the wait! 

I loved Catalina and Alessandro! I could fill pages with what I want to say about them and this final story in their journey but every reader should discover its goodness the way I did - one page at a time - so I'll just say this: Questions are answered, bad guys dispatched, love is tested (but holds strong), surprises revealed, and the entire non-stop journey is littered with twists and turns aplenty. I couldn't put it down. Well, okay, so I did put it down (more like dropped my Kindle on my face when I fell asleep) around 2:30 AM but the second I woke up this morning I grabbed that device and didn't stop reading until I reached the final page. No surprise that the first thing I wanted to do was go back to page one and start over a second time. These books are seriously addictive!

I don't know what future plans Ilona Andrews has for the Baylor family or if this is the end of the Hidden Legacy series. (PLEASE, don't let this be the end!!!) There's a new Arabella thread introduced that has me hoping (wishing, praying, not above begging) for another trilogy. Plus, Leon needs a match. And...and...and...I love this family way too much to say goodbye. Not yet! 

If you're a Hidden Legacy fan, you probably already have Ruby Fever on pre-order. If you're new to this world, I recommend you begin with Burn for Me (Nevada's trilogy - Book 1) and read the books in order. It's the best way to fully understand these characters, their evolution, their fascinating world, their family dynamic, and the stories that have me reaching for these books to reread time and time again.  

The Hidden Legacy books, in order, are:

Nevada's trilogy
Burn for Me
White Hot

Diamond Fire (a novella that connects the two trilogies)

Catalina's trilogy
Sapphire Flames
Emerald Blaze
Ruby Fever


Are you reading the Hidden Legacy series?

Have you read any other books by Ilona Andrews?

Are you as hopeful for another trilogy as I am?

One person who posts a comment before 11:00 PM, August 21 will receive finished print copies of Sapphire Flames and Emerald Blaze and a print ARC of Ruby Fever.

  1. I am a member of the BDH (book devouring horde) that follows House Andrews through all their series. I have been anxiously waiting for this book, while I read their weekly serial story for another series.

  2. I have no idea how you do it, but you provide me with new authors as well as new books and it makes me want to jump on them like a duck on a June bug. Thanks for this review and introduction.

  3. I have never heard of this series. I am very interested in trying this out based upon your review and description.

  4. Hi. I am anonymous. Please add me to the blog. Susanne Lercher

  5. Haven't read her yet. On my TBR. Thanks for the chance. harvester5905 at gmail dot com

  6. I’ve got some of their books on my TBR—excited to have this to look forward to! Thanks for the review!

  7. I have looked at her books in the past and been interested, but never gotten around to reading them. I do believe it is best to read a series in order to get the most from it. Being able to read them together keeps the characters and the plot line fresh for a better reading experience. Thank you for the review and the giveaway.

  8. I have read all of the previous books in this series, so I have been eager to read this next one, Each book has been a real page-turner.

  9. Great review! I’ve really enjoyed the Hidden Legacies series and hope we’ll see more in this world. Ilona Andrews has a way of making me want spin off series for all of their characters.

  10. Proud member of the BDH (book devouring horde) here! I've read everything published by Ilona Andrews and I love the Hidden Legacy series. I can't wait for Ruby Fever; your review has gotten me even more excited. I do hope this isn't the end and that Arabella gets her own trilogy as well.

  11. I love to win the books. Have not read this series but I I love Kate Daniel series
