Book Review: Burn For Me (Hidden Legacy #1) by Ilona Andrews
The magic in this story universe is an innovative mix of innate genetic ability and physical spell work based on arcane glyphs and circles- like something straight out of a high fantasy novel. Magic has boundaries - meaning it doesn't give even the Primes, the most powerful of mages - limitless potential.
I haven't enjoyed an urban fantasy book this much since the first Night Huntress book, and that series is one of my all time favorites! This series has a lot of potential and should appeal to lovers of paranormal romance as much as fans of urban fantasy, thanks to the solid writing of team Ilona Andrews and their fierce, daring characterization of Rogan and Baylor.

Indie-Pendence Week Giveaway (US/Int): Ilona Andrews on the necessity of eye-catching cover art
Please help us welcome the lovely and talented Ilona Andrews to GraveTells today!
The old adage, although it's unfair, is true: people do judge the book by its cover. It's the "face" of your book and your best chance at catching the attention of your readers. Having the right cover is important for any writer, but when it comes to self-publishing, the cover truly becomes vital.

Review: Magic Graves (anthology) by Jeaniene Frost and Ilona Andrews
Magic Graves is a smorgasbord of awesome: strawberries dipped in chocolate with a chaser of champagne, tiny petit fours fed to you by gorgeous leather clad muscular Scotsmen. This anthology features two of the leading ladies of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance: Jeaniene Frost (author of the Night Huntress series, featuring Cat Crawfield Russell and her uber hawt hubby gigolo-turned-hitman Bones, and Night Huntress World books, featuring some of our favorite secondary characters) and Ilona Andrews (author of the Kate Daniels series, featuring Kate and her yummy-nummy mate Curran, and The Edge series). Hang on to your panties and your wallets people ‘cause this is some good sh*t [...]
