From #1 New York Times bestselling author Ilona Andrews comes an enthralling new trilogy set in the Hidden Legacy world, where magic means power, and family bloodlines are the new currency of society…

In a world where magic is the key to power and wealth, Catalina Baylor is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, and the Head of her House. Catalina has always been afraid to use her unique powers, but when her friend’s mother and sister are murdered, Catalina risks her reputation and safety to unravel the mystery.

But behind the scenes powerful forces are at work, and one of them is Alessandro Sagredo, the Italian Prime who was once Catalina’s teenage crush. Dangerous and unpredictable, Alessandro’s true motives are unclear, but he’s drawn to Catalina like a moth to a flame.

To help her friend, Catalina must test the limits of her extraordinary powers, but doing so may cost her both her House–and her heart.


  • Magic blood love

    Catalina steps onto the fore of this series. An unsolved mystery still plays and keeps everyone hooked for more
  • Awesome!

    By Syrreader
    Ilona Andrews writes books that I can read and re-read and Sapphire Flames is another favorite. This book was such a fun action packed read, it ended too soon and left me hungry for the next book. If you are looking for action packed paranormal romance with strong independent women characters this book and this entire series is for you. The men are there to be supportive, smart, and bring muscle, but it is the women who make the tough decisions and show just how powerful being smart can be!
  • Great addition to a fantastic series!

    Another fantastic story in this outstanding series that has everything you want in a in a great paranormal/fantasy read. The writing is superb with characters that jump off the pages in heart-pounding action adventure storylines that always satisfy. I've loved this series from the start with the spunky oldest sister Nevada and the hunky Mad Rogan and there has been no letdown with the continuation of the series. I'm so excited to move on to the siblings with Catalina up first as the new head of House Baylor in the game of magic users and the Prime hierarchy. And she gets a dreamy (mostly) Italian hottie as her love interest. Alessandro makes a different kind of magic happen! But their encounters aren't all hearts and flowers as the couple face challenge after challenge and are at odds quite a bit. As usual there's violence galore and blood and bits flying as these magic users do their thing. I will say there seemed to be a few discrepancies with the previous stories and missing characters but not enough to overshadow the enjoyment of this one. This writing duo has a talent for spectacular storytelling with unique characters and along with the gore parts there's also romance and some hilarious moments. I love this crazy Baylor family and can't wait for the next installment. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC.
  • More and soon

    I love this, I was afraid that I was still to invested in Rogan and Nevada that I wouldn’t like it but I did and I want so much more! I am glad that she pushed Catalina’s character to grow up and to stand out more. I still want another Rogan and Nevada story, especially with what she let us know what’s going on with them. Though any book would be wonderful at this time, Ilona and Gordon at just wonderful writers and I always love reading their books over and over to sustain me until the next one comes out.

    I really love everything about this series! Sapphire Flames is the start of an awesome new branch of it. I love the Baylors!!! To say that I can’t wait for the next book is an understatement. Ilona Andrews, you guys tell a story like no other. If you write it, I’ll read it!
  • Never disappointed

    By King Ram210
    Once again these writers engage, surprise and please the readers. This is a continuation of a storyline and well worth the read. Oh no!, I have to wait, who know how long, for the next one. Great series (As are all of their books) and great read! Thank you for a great Labor Day/Hurricane read.
  • Great!

    This was a fun read. Not what I was expecting from Catalina and Alessandro. A good way to continue developing the world as well as the characters.

    Loved other books in Hidden Legacy series but this book was a huge disappointment. Main family characters turned into incompetent whiners. Nothing like the flow of previous books...... such a shame.
  • Spectacular

    I read this in a single sitting with acid in my veins and a roiling stomach. I hated how it made me feel. I love that it can make me feel. I’ll pre-order the next book the very moment I’m able. Spectacular.
