For anyone who loves book series, the last book always brings satisfaction (only if that last book is well done) and yet a gaping hole created by the question: what can take this series’ place? All of the Hidden Legacy books have been a wild ride. I’m gonna miss ’em.
If you like paranormal series with a strong family dynamic, just the right amount of romance, and lots of page turning, read this series!
Blurb: 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.

While I recently read that the Hidden Legacy series was not one of Ilona Andrews’ favorite series to write, I have to say that it has been one of my favorite ones to read with its fast-paced action, snarky characters, and punchy dialogue. As a series finisher (hopefully not, I think there are more stories to tell about the other characters), Ruby Fever did not let me down.
Beginning with the murder of a high profile government official, followed immediately on its heels by the attack on Linus who has been a mentor to the Baylor girls, Ruby Fever is non-stop action except when relevant and interesting backstory about the Baylor-Tremaine family and Alessandro’s family is given or, of course, when Catalina and Alessandro get their romance on. And, like my recent vacation, the pages fled by too soon.
A lot of surprises pop out and what seemed to be a possible future romance for Arabella was hinted at. Again, hopefully.
So sad to see “The End” but cling to: never say never.
A beyond satisfying conclusion to a fun, exhilarating series.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Which series’ have an unsatisfying finale ending, so I’ll know to never even start on book 1?
Well, I wasn’t enamored with Kelley Armstrong’s last book in her Rockton series but I did give it a 4 rating and I see that it’s well liked by other reviewers. I thought it was a bit of a let down for a really excellent series. That’s the one that comes quickest to mind (probably because it’s most recent). However, they’re essentially mystery books and certainly not dependent on the last one.
