Wildfire by Ilona AndrewsWildfire by Ilona Andrews

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I need more. More Rogan, more Nevada, more grandma Frida, more Sergeant Teddy… More books, please Ilona Andrews, please, with a chocolate mousse on top.

Buddy read with my freaky mind-twin Nel.

The third and final (?) book is about Nevada taking on a case for Rogan’s ex fiance, Rynda. Despite everyone trying to talk her out of it, she tucks her feelings in and proves that she’s a professional.

The case turns out to be tied to the conspirators who try to destabalize Houston and hopefully it will lead to the identity of the Ceasar. I gotta say, I was thinking on another person for that role, I had my case all built up and ready to go. That teaches me!

Anyway, the book was great, it had great story and characters. There were otherwordly creatures that were so adorable you wanted to cuddle them, when they weren’t trying to eat someone. We found out what Arabella’s gift is and explored Leon’s along the way. Nevada and Rogan’s relationship progressed to the point where I was just swooning at their adorkableness. Evil grandma had been dealt with and Baylor family is on their way to become one bad-ass House.

It was all great, but I thought it was weird that Augustine didn’t turn up anywere in the book. I feel like he was building into becoming a bigger part of the solution. And that’s just another thing that didn’t make this book feel final in the series, now I’m hearing that there might be another one and I hope it’s true. There were too many open storylines. I wouldn’t mind a spin-off too. Catalina has a good potential, as well as a couple other people. I just really don’t want it to end.

Fingers crossed for future books.

Mischenko’s Questions:

Is there something you can tell readers about yourself and your blog?

Let’s see, I’m a big child who believes people to be better than they are, but when faced with reality prefers to live in her happy bubble. That’s why I read so much, and that’s why I have this blog I guess, to share my happy bubble with people who want it or need it.

What satisfaction do you get from blogging?

I get to vent and not filter my words. I get to choose what I want to write about and what I share, it’s really amazing how people can connect through a platform like this.

How do you bring traffic to your blog?

Traffic? I just started doing this like a couple months ago, I don’t know what I’m doing still ))

What’s something that you’d like to improve on this year?

Hmmm, do I have to improve something? As far as I’m concerned, everything is pretty good.

How do you get motivated to blog?

It’s not the motivation, it’s time I’m lacking at the moment. I have so much tags I’m behind on, it’s getting awkward.

Do you have any favorite books this year?

Hell, yes! The whole ACOTAR and Hidden Legacy series. They were amazing surprises.

The Hooker and the Hermit (Rugby, #1)Take Me with YouBlack Swan AffairBlade Bound (Chicagoland Vampires, #13)Punk 57The Bourbon Thief

 

Are there any songs you’re into right now, or music artists?

There’s always songs I’m into, at any given moment. Right now it’s:

What do you like to do with your spare time?

Read, watch tv, go to the movies with friends, annoy my cat, sing along at the top of my lungs to my favorite songs.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I like surprises, so we’ll see.

If you could choose ONLY 5 subjects to read on other blogs, what would they be? (Books, music, film, health, etc.)

Books, music, film, tv, travel.

Do you make money from your blog? If not, do you have plans to try in the future?

Nuh! But wait till I get like half a million subscribers and then I’ll be swimming in dough ;D

Finally! Nevada has grown into her power and can now kick ass with the best of them. Add to that her awesome shooting capabilities and we have one bad-ass mother!

You can’t handle my cool

Rogan met his match with that one, for sure.

We got a little closer to understanding the powers that made this whole mess, and I, personally, have a pretty good theory about who stands behind the curtains. My reasoning is spectacular, just ask Nell, but I’ll keep it to myself for now, just to not spoil the fun for you guys.

Nevada’s family is just ridiculously hilarious, Leon in particular in this book. I was LOLing like crazy. No wonder they love each other so much, every single one of them is a professional comedian on top of everything else.

Just to make you understand why I loved this book so much, I’m gonna say these four words: ninja ferrets in harnesses. Should I even say any more?
