No day is ordinary in a world where Technology and Magic compete for supremacyBut no matter which force is winning, in the apocalypse, a sword will always work. Hugh dAmbray, Preceptor of the Iron Dogs, Warlord of the Builder of Towers, served only one man. Now his immortal, nearly omnipotent master has cast him aside. Hugh is a shadow of the warrior he was, but when he learns that the Iron Dogs, soldiers who would follow him anywhere, are being hunted down and murdered, he must make a choice: to fade away or to be the leader he was born to be. Hugh knows he must carve a new place for himself and his people, but they have no money, no shelter, and no food, and the necromancers are coming. Fast. Elara Harper is a creature who should not exist. Her enemies call her Abomination; her people call her White Lady. Tasked with their protection, she's trapped between the magical heavyweights about to collide and plunge the state of Kentucky into a war that humans have no power to stop. Desperat...

Iron and Magic (The Iron Covenant #1) Reviews
Actual rating: 8 stars. And that's coming from a non-hysterical Hugh non-fangirl. Which should tell you something and stuff.
To think that this book started as a bloody shrimping April Fools’ joke three years ago. To think that some
slightly obsessed maniacspeople still insist on calling it The Hugh Book. Well I’ll have you know that:
This book is no longer a joke ← pointing this out in case you hadn’t noticed. You are quite welcome and stuff.
There is much much much much MUCH more to this book ...more
And the best book I have read this year so far.
---Spoilers if you haven't read Magic Binds (Kate Daniels #9)---
I haven't realised how much I have missed Kate Daniel's word before I started this book.
But I have discovered a much more interesting eye-catching world. The world of warlord Hugh d’Ambray.
His world initially is dark, full of self-pity and abandonment. His adopted father, his god, the light and warmth of his life abandoned him. Roland has thrown him away like ...more
Favorite Quote: “As long as you stay here, you have a home. I’ll never abandon you.”
Hugh d’Ambray has been cut loose by his master and pseudo-father, Roland. He wallows in the booze until his will to live and need to save his people overrides his death wish. With no money, shelter, or weapons, the Iron Dogs have no hope of surviving the necromancers that are gunning for them. Until his advisor approaches him with a proposition. A marriage of convenience to one they call the White Lady.

( (Elara) “You want me to marry Conan the Barbarian?” A drop of acid slid into her tone.
“An attractive barbarian,” Dugas pointed out.
(Elara) “He’s a monster. Like me.”
Ahhh... I've missed this world!
And I'm so happy to read about Hugh! He was the uber-villaain in the Kate Daniels series! He's the man who killed some of my favorit Kate's friends!
So I was curious to find out how IL would make him a hero! What a job!
And they did it! They ABSOLUTELY did it!
Don't think that Hugh has become a ...more
4.5 Hugh you are a Bastard Stars
Beta read for the Andrews and I loved so many things!!!
Look I've never been head over heels in love with Hugh. He is the bad guy and I'm not really into them most of the time. BUT....this has the White Warlock Elara in it and the Departed (I have no idea who they really are but I'm looking forward to finding out). Even if Hugh isn't your favorite Elara is a strong independent woman with some awesome magical stuff happening and a group of people living in a castle. ...more
OMG OMG OMG - I honestly did not think I would like Hugh as much as I did.
Iron and Magic is a spin off series of my beloved Kate Daniels, and it follows bad boy Hugh on his journey, after being banished and cut off by his master and God Roland.
Reading his side was eye-opening.
I personally loved how the authors explained his side of the story. His feelings, and lack of feelings because of Roland's absence made complete sense. And it wasn't surprising that I liked him from the very first ...more
Ever since the departure of Hugh d'Ambry from Kate Daniels, I have missed him. Okay, okay, I know he is one of the bad guys but he has this charisma that is hard to resist and easy to like even after all the facades that the guy keeps and try to show himself as a real baddie.
As the blurb suggests Hugh got himself a bride here but don't let yourself fool thinking about all the romantic moments that a newly wed couple has . This is a marriage of convenience where Hugh & his “dogs” get the she ...more
Iron and Magic, filled with some of my favorite things. Snark, sparks, witty comebacks, testy relationships, challenging characters, magic, fantastic beasties and romance.
Finally Hugh got his own book. Yes the dude who was treated so badly by his father figure and his semi sibling while being one super nasty dark dastardly villain. You know in the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews ? Yes that Hugh. Hugh is so cold he's hot. Yup ladies he's one of those boys you hate to love and can't stop yo ...more
