and gore murder discussion of rape and human trafficking hide spoiler I have no idea how to talk about this book without spoiling Nevada s trilogy and Sapphire Flames, the first book in Catalina s arc You have been warned for spoilers of previous Hidden Legacy installments and if you haven t read those, you shouldn t be reading this review anyway These books don t work as stand alones Go back and start Burn for Me.Y all As Catalina would say, I can t even What to say What to start with I tried really hard to write an an organized long form review, but unfortunately the incoherent squeeing in my head still hasn t died down and never will , so we have to settle for bullet points with lots of emotion.And now, some scattered and spoiler free thoughts on Emerald Blaze.1 Did I love this book Let s look at the first impressions I wrote right after finishing it WHY IS THIS SERIES SO GOOD HOW CAN IT END LIKE THAT I WANT TO DIE AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I think that speaks for itself 2 Re the Nevada Baylor familial conflict introduced in the last book We get the full details of why the split happened and why Nevada stepped down as the head of the house I m super impressed by the logistics because I had not predicted this explanation, but it made a LOT of sense to me But don t worry, the Baylors are still on excellent terms and love each very much Just because Nevada isn t technically part of House Baylor doesn t mean she isn t part of the family 3 It is embarrassing how attractive I find Alessandro Likelegit shame induced, head hanging embarrassment He d say some Italian endearment and I was like WHY IS THIS HOT, why am I shaking with awe At one point, I half burst into tears because he wanted to protect Catalina As I said, embarrassing This quarantine is bringing out facets of me that have been previously unexplored I m not the type of person who squee over a hero, so WHO AM I AND WHAT HAVE I BECOME In my defense, I can t help it The man is a mysterious assassin with unclear motives He s also smart enough to be in love with Catalina which, hello, grants him a million points because Catalina is my favorite character in the entire series Also, IA keeps describing him with wolfish attributes and I Love Wolves Let s just say that Alessandro is the perfect meld of my favorite hero characteristics 4 CATALINA MY QUEEN I LOVE YOU.The interesting thing about Catalina is how different she is from the previous book Here is what I wrote about her in my review for Sapphire Flames I m really impressed with how different the three Baylor girls are Before reading this book, I was nervous that Catalina would be just like Nevada whom I love, but I don t want to read about the same type of heroine over and over again My worries were for nothing Catalina s voice is completely different than Nevada s voice Catalina is introverted, pragmatic, and keeps her emotions tightly hidden because she s so vulnerable and scared to trust her heart with anyone But she s so damn strong inside and willing to do anything for her family She wants to be loved so badly and she pines so badly for her teenage crush Alessandro , but she keeps all of those forbidden feelings locked inside because she s so scared of her own power As a siren, everyone falls in love with her if she isn t careful to shield her magic But as different as the Baylor sisters are and I haven t even gotten into Arabella, my favorite , they have that core Baylor goodness inside them They will always help people who come to them for aid, no matter how dire the circumstances Nevada was never able to resist a client in need, and neither can Catalina It s my favorite thing about the family I don t want to go into spoilers, but I was willing to die for Catalina by the end My murderous, sweet, introverted, brave, and vulnerable Catalina She easily goes into my list of favorite heroines ever it s a very long list, I refuse to whittle it down as I love them all And by the epilogue, I wanted to give her a big, big hug and a large tub of ice cream She deserves all the happiness in the world and I love her so much So all this is still true but also different Catalina isn t the shy, anxious girl any She s still vulnerable inside But her heartbreak with Alessandro and being Head of the House plus that new spoilery job with Linus have hardened her She s been meeting up with Victoria Tremaine and learning how to be a badass, manipulative Head update Victoria is still terrifying as hell I don t want to say that she s a different person, because she s not But circumstances in the last six months have forced her to present a scarier,confident exterior to others She can t show her insecurities to the world because it would eat her up Despite all the changes, she s still Catalina inside and watching her expose her vulnerabilities to Alessandro and vice versa made me shed loud, uncontrollable tears.GAHHH I just love her so much Catalina is for sure my favorite Baylor and I want her to get an HEA so badly But also I don t, because that would mean her books are over 5 My theories re Caesar and the biological paternal grandparent of the Baylor sisters I had fairly good explanations for both before reading this book and Emerald Blaze neither confirmed nor denied them Argh On one hand, I feel confident On the other hand, I have no idea when the narrative intends to explicitly reveal these secrets and it s driving me up the wall Could be the next book, could be five books from now Also, I have theories for Leon s biological father, Arabella s future hero, and Augustine s potential love interest I have a lot of theories, okay This is what happens when you reread the series and your brain expends endless energy in speculation.6 Okay, y all, I m only point 6 and have barely touched all the things I loved about Emerald Blaze despite inching toward the GR maximum character count And honestly, I don t want to tell you all the things I loved because you should discover them for yourselfWill you love Emerald Blaze It depends.I ve never read Hidden Legacy Can I start here and enjoy it Nope I do not recommend this series as a stand alone Go back and start with Nevada s arc in Burn for Me I really loved Nevada s arc but disliked hated Catalina s first book Will I enjoy Emerald Blaze Honestly, probably not I can see people who enjoyed Sapphire Flames enjoy Emerald Blaze evenor vice versa But both books would be at the minimum I enjoyed it levels in order for that to be true If you flat out hated Sapphire Flames, I m not sure why you d enjoy Catalina s arc going forward You can definitely try the book, but go in with lowered expectations.I really loved Nevada s arc AND I loved Catalina s first book Will I enjoy Emerald Blaze YES YOU WILL GO PREORDER IT AND THEN READ IT AT MIDNIGHT ON RELEASE DATE THEN MESSAGE ME WITH ALL YOUR THOUGHTS BECAUSE I NEED MORE HIDDEN LEGACY FRIENDS.Ahem My mission to avoid review incoherency is failing miserably, so I think it s time to stop now Disclaimer I received a free e ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
