Nevada Frida Baylor and Connor Ander Rogan cordially invite you to join their wedding celebration. Summoning, weather manipulation, and other magical activities strictly forbidden.

Catalina Baylor is looking forward to wearing her maid of honor dress and watching her older sister walk down the aisle. Then the wedding planner gets escorted off the premises, the bride’s priceless tiara disappears, and Rogan’s extensive family overruns his mother’s home. Someone is cheating, someone is lying, and someone is plotting murder.

To make this wedding happen, Catalina will have to do the thing she fears most: use her magic. But she’s a Baylor and there’s nothing she wouldn’t do for her sister’s happiness. Nevada will have her fairy tale wedding, even if Catalina has to tear the mansion apart brick by brick to get it done.


“Just keep in mind,” Leon said, merging onto the highway, “I’m your cousin and you love me. If you attack me while I’m driving, we will both die and then he wins. Don’t let him win, Catalina.”


I have loved everything Ilona Andrews has written so far, and Diamond Fire is no exception. I couldn’t wait to read it, even though it was just a novella, and I gobbled it up despite being so tired tears were draining from my eyes. Worth it! It is always worth it to enjoy a Ilona Andrews release.

Diamond Fire is an in-series crossover novella that is a changing of the hands between the sisters Nevada and Catalina Baylor. Until this point, we know Catalina as the younger sister who helps out when Nevada needs, but mostly she just is in the background. Through the book, you can feel Catalina becoming more and more of a person you just do not want to put down. I now cannot wait for her first full book. There is going to be so much to look forward to! Here’s hoping I don’t have to wait as long for the next book as I waited for White Hot. Then again, I’d wait a really long time for more if it meant I got more.

My only wish is that I would have gotten to see more Rogan and Nevada. I love those two and was hoping I would get to see a bit more of them before we had to go to Catalina full time. Catalina has some pretty big shoes to fill!
