As Prime magic users, Catalina Baylor and her sisters have extraordinary powers—powers their ruthless grandmother would love to control. Catalina can earn her family some protection working as deputy to the Warden of Texas, overseeing breaches of magic law in the state, but that has risks as well. When House Baylor is under attack and monsters haunt her every step, Catalina is forced to rely on handsome, dangerous Alessandro Sagredo, the Prime who crushed her heart.
The nightmare that Alessandro has fought since childhood has come roaring back to life, but now Catalina is under threat. Not even his lifelong quest for revenge will stop him from keeping her safe, even if every battle could be his last. Because Catalina won’t rest until she stops the use of the illicit, power-granting serum that’s tearing their world apart.
Emerald Blaze by Ilona Andrews is the most engaging romance fantasy novel I have read. The cast of characters each play an important role in this book. Catalina and Alessandro are a power couple. They kick ass and do it well. Never a dull moment with these two fighting together. Catalina is very protective of her family and takes her job seriously. Alessandro is just as protective when it comes to Catalina. This novel is action-packed and full of suspense as the danger towards Catalina rises. Ilona Andrews writes in a way that immediately takes readers further into the book and holds their undivided attention. I was hooked. Once I was in, I did not want to leave. With magic involved, the deadly situations grow more intense with every page.
