    3.75 stars Reread it today, just to see what I missed the first time around Nevada is getting married, and her beleaguered younger sisters are trying to plan a society wedding for her since Nevada keeps firing the professional wedding planners Now the priceless heirloom wedding tiara has disappeared, and Nevada s sister Catalina is tasked by Rogan s mother with finding it But that s not the only problem that Catalina gets hit with during the couple of weeks before the wedding There are 3.75 stars Reread it today, just to see what I missed the first time around Nevada is getting married, and her beleaguered younger sisters are trying to plan a society wedding for her since Nevada keeps firing the professional wedding planners Now the priceless heirloom wedding tiara has disappeared, and Nevada s sister Catalina is tasked by Rogan s mother with finding it But that s not the only problem that Catalina gets hit with during the couple of weeks before the wedding There are lots of resentments and secrets brewing in Rogan s mother s side of the family from Spain, who are all staying in his mother s mansion during the pre wedding period Ilona Andrews provides a handy family tree at the beginning of Diamond Fire it s worth studying Trust me on this.The plot was okay but not one of the memorable ones Ilona Andrews has come up with The storytelling probably was hampered somewhat by the novella length, especially given the large number of unfamiliar characters in its pages and their soap opera like lives, but it was great fun getting to know Catalina better I love the way her magical talents are explored and the insights into her personality Prize for the best cameo appearance goes to the poison mage Alessandro Sagredo, who made such a brief but memorable appearance in Wildfire view spoiler , makes another brief appearance here, but not a particularly memorable one We ll have to wait for the next Catalina book Can t wait to see of him hide spoiler.Full review to come, closer to the publication date I received a free eARC, courtesy of Edelweiss and Harper Collins Thanks so much

    4.5 starsDiamond Fire was a wonderful novella Not every author can write a novella that doesn t make the reader feel like it was rushed or parts were missing But as always the author delivered And as a matter of fact the novella perfectly introduced the upcoming trilogy A trilogy about Catalina And I must confess I m already hooked This fantastic and magical world had me captivated from the very beginning.I love this series so much Unsurprisingly I reread the entire Hidden Legacy trilogy i 4.5 starsDiamond Fire was a wonderful novella Not every author can write a novella that doesn t make the reader feel like it was rushed or parts were missing But as always the author delivered And as a matter of fact the novella perfectly introduced the upcoming trilogy A trilogy about Catalina And I must confess I m already hooked This fantastic and magical world had me captivated from the very beginning.I love this series so much Unsurprisingly I reread the entire Hidden Legacy trilogy in preparation for Diamond Fire And boy am I glad I did Everything was vibrant and fresh in my memory Just in time to enjoy Catalina carrying her own novella And she did it perfectly Catalina is not like Nevada In fact she is a quite, and serious personality Maybe because she had to repress her magic her entire life However, it seems like she is stretching her wings so to speak And it s going to be a pleasure to see her experiment those powers Naturally I can t wait to read about her Because she rocked this book I love mysteries In Diamond Fire Catalina skillfully solved a wonderfully entertaining mystery Because Catalina worked for the family company for years, she definitely knew what she was doing Granted she had seen Nevada work with clients over the years, but the way she handled herself was impressive In fact she was professional, knowledgeable, smart and mature in handling the entire situation I already know her stories will be brilliant.Even though Diamond Fire introduced a huge cast with Rogan s family, the original cast from the trilogy was still present Because of this, it was the PERFECT way of connecting Nevada s trilogy with the upcoming books about Catalina It felt like a continuation I thought the novella was very well done.And I m really excited I m honestly counting down the months, weeks, and days until Catalina s first book Again, another Ilona Andrews series that has become a favorite of mine But at this point it s not a surprise any I like their writing, stories and characters It just works for me Every single character is adoringly real And always entertaining Makes me hope they never stop writing.ARC generously provided in exchange for an honest review If you want to chat with me about books, find me on Instagram For of my reviews My Blog Book Twins ReviewsFacebook Blog PageTwitterSubscribe to Blog
