*taps mic* Ahem.
BLOOD HEIR is on Amazon’s Best science fiction and fantasy of 2021 so far List!
This is so amazing 😍!
BLOOD HEIR was an instant best-seller on its release, and it continues to gather accolades and appreciation. For a self-published book, with no publisher backed advertising or marketing, it is a testament to both House Andrews incredible talent and the power of the BDH!
I love this book so much. For being the usual guaranteed Ilona Andrews fabulous read (and what a lucky BDH we are) and especially for what it meant to me and so many others last year.
I am so happy to see it succeed and House Andrews are very grateful to everyone who made it happen.
PS: #TeamMetalRose 4ever!
Ooo I’m the first one…Congratulations to House Andrews ????????????
Bravo! Well deserved House Andrews.
I just finished rereading this wonderful book this morning! Congrats to House Andrews.
Congratulations!!!! That is so awesome ???? cheers, accolades, all good things to House Andrews!! It’s so deserved.
You go guys! Muppet flopping all the way.
Just don’t pull a muscle celebrating.

Yay! Yippee! Snoopy dancing with Kermit! Congrats!!!????????in-????♀️-ious!
Fantastic!!! Well deserved.
Congratulations, and thank you so much for this book. It was exactly what I needed to get through last year. It gave me something to look forward to when I had very little good going on. Thank you again!!!
Truly, it’s just a great book with lots of treasures in it. Just starting to reread it again, I needed more Julie and Derek in my life.
Kermit is the bomb. House Andrews is the nuclear bomb. 😛
Congrats on the (very deserved) recognition. (Without the “so far” BS.)
How lovely. Congrats, House Andrews. May this list help more people find your books.
Aurora Ebonfire says

I tried to attach a gif, but it wouldn’t go. So here’s a screenshot. ????

Damn right it is!

Donna A says
Woot woot ????????????
It’s an honor well deserved. I am very glad others have noticed.
Looking forward to the next book – whatever it happens to be.
Jeanann Stump says
Congratulations! I loved Blood Heir and I have got my oldest to read the KD series. She is almost finished with Magic Triumphs. I can’t wait to see her reaction to the end and what she thinks of Blood Heir.
Marie S says
Fantastic news! Well deserved and many congratulations. I wanted the story to go on and on, and on…
Yes!!! Well deserved! And team metal
Rose all the way 🙂
Congratulations and thank you SO MUCH for an amazing book! I can’t wait to read the next one ????????????
Mary Beth says
Blood Heir remains my favorite read of 2021.
Looking forward to hearing all about Hugh and his cow juggling child problems.
Congrats to House Andrews! Blood Heir was awesome, hopefully this brings more people into your wonderful fictional worlds.
And, of course, #TeamMetalRose
+1 And it’s in good company there.
This is just lovely – Tanja typing with a smile on her face.
Happy for you.
Judy Schultheis says
They’ve already promised us two more in this series. I hope we get at least ten.
Well deserved! My husband watched in awe as I called the US several times and had the book shipped to Denmark with all the extra taxes and shipping that entails. (After I’d already read the ebook) He was curious what book could be worth all of that and read it. He’s hooked and moving through the whole back catalogue. I love finally getting to talk HA books with him.
Yay for you too, Jenny! Being able to share the fun is priceless!
Congrats! And yes, it was one of my lifelines during the year of isolation and varying degrees of lockdown.
So well deserved!!
Nailed it! ????
Laura Martinez says
Congratulations House Andrews!!!
Whoohoo!!!! Congrats! Its well deserved!!!
My daughter works at a doggy daycare…she is always listening to podcasts, novels, music, etc… Finally after I was done laughing at a snippet, she read it! She has started with the KD novels on audible. I’ve been receiving hot texts ever since, e.g. “Mom, Derek doesn’t die does he?He can’t–he’s too sweet–MOM, answer me!…Is Dr. Toothpaste(Crest) the evil dude in this book?…Mooooooommmmm!!!” She’s read books from my library before but she has totally flipped over House Andrews. So, now I have someone to discuss my favorite stories with in my own house. #funfamilyconnectiontime!!!
Moderator R says
Oh, I vividly remember those “Derek cannot die!” moments on my first read as well! ::hugs::
Nicole in WI says
Congratulations!! This is excellent news!
Make sure to stretch before Muppet flopping! 🙂 Congrats House Andrews!
Cory John says
Yaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!! Congratulations House Andrews!
Congratulations House Andrews!!
And, yes, TeamMetalRose!!
Janeen Smart says
That is so incredible for you all! Congratulations! Thank you so much for sharing your world with us.
Just Josie says
Damn bloody worth it. It so belongs there????☺️
Well deserved! Thank you for the continuous quality reads and entertainment!
Erica Conner says
Alyssa Koo says
Well deserved success – so happy to support you when you self-publish! (And when you don’t. Basically all the time!)
Scott Drummond says
Hurray! Well deserved!
Congratulations! It’s an exceptional book and a wonderful continuation in a favorite world.
Well deserved. Congratulations and thank you for giving us this world to enjoy again.
Yay! Celebrate the awesome that is you and your writing! Well deserved!
Bwahahaha!!! Love the news about BH! And Kermit!! So appropriate!!
Terrie C says
Blood Heir is in my top 5 of all your books. It is my go-to read when I cannot find something interesting, which means I have read it countless times.
Just adding in that I am so happy for you, and hope the joy continues. I buy your books in print, so that I will always have them, and in audiobooks, as they often get me through tasks I do not really want to do.
Congrats to House Andrews, and I hope your upcoming week is a lot brighter than this past one!
Yayyy!!! Congratulations to House Andrews!!! So happy to hear that!
You guys did a fantastic job! Congratulations on this new achievement! So much love for you guys!
Blood Heir! Yes! Congratulations, that book was so wonderful. So nice to see everyone from KD series having their HEA and then some new characters to see. Sweet!
Patricia Kading says
Tawnya Johnson says
Holy Moly! So happy for you both!
Aman Sidhu says
Congratulations!!! Well deserved.
EEEEEEEEE! So incredibly happy for House Andrews! Well deserved!
I love this so much!
Of the KD books, Blood Heir – Yes! The Best. Maybe because it was the latest in the series. What about the next one?
Amanda P says
Congrats to you both!! ????????????????
Bill from NJ says
Amazing! Then again WE all knew that “lol”. Goes to show just how good your writing is, it doesn’t need marketing or the like:)
Melisa M. says
Congratulations!!! So deserved!
Congratulations. Funny how a snippet can turn into a super fantastic story????
Jessica Haluska says
Kat M says
Hot damn! That’s so exciting!
(Asks quietly) what is BDH?
(Shouts Loudly) CONGRATULATIONS ???? ????
Moderator R says
The BDH is the Book Devouring Horde, aka the Ilona Andrews fans! Welcome ????
We were named after the Hope Crushing Horde in the Innkeeper series and our book devouring proclivities ????
Ok. What is this metalroseteam? Where is it to be found ?
Moderator R says
Team Metal Rose is an identifier for the fans who believe in the Julie/Derek couple and think they should end up together.
The name is based on the Magic Burns scene in which Derek makes a metal rose out of nails and a cup and gives it to Julie ????. We see Aurelia kept it all these years in Blood Heir.
Congrats!!!!! Yall deserve all the sweet things in life!!
I’m thrilled to hear this!!! Congrats!!
Congratulations and well deserved.
Congratulations! So well deserved. Of course the BDH knew this already.
As an aside, the other book in the pic, _The Galaxy and the Ground Within_, by Becky Chambers, is also amazing. Heartstoppingly beautiful and thoughtful. I have been recommending the series to my friends as “character-driven sci-fi” and everyone who has read it has been enthusiastic about it. This is the 4th book, you could probably start there, but the first 3 are amazing as well.
Yessss, congratulations to House Andrews, who just continue to give us the most amazing stories.
And thanks for the remarks on the other book – as a member of the BDH I need new books all the time. And I can only reread so often …
Lisa Menery says
Congrats. It’s a great book.
Congratulations to House Andrews! ???????????????? Wonderful news!
Now for my inner fangirl….SQEEEEEEEEE!!!
Congrats, well deserved!! The book was a real highlight during an otherwise grim time.
Awesome!! ???? Keep writing and I’ll happily keep buying!????
Congratulations!! Loved this book so much and I’m so happy it is getting the recognition it deserves!! Best authors ever!
Yey. It just prove how good BH is.
I already re-read it a few times.
To more IA books
Congratulations! It looks like the only self published book, too.
The Andrews team is amazing. Thanks for bringing us this book.
What excellent news! Many congrats to HA!
That’s amazing! Congrats!
I loved Blood Heir and Magic Stars so much…I think I’ve reread them both 3x since the release and I have to hold myself back from doing it again lol
Yeah and congratulations!
Woohoo!!!! What wonderful news! (Though also not surprised because the book was really good ????) Congratulations!!
Congratulations! Totally deserved!
Looking forward to moooore! Love Julie and Derek and obviously the Familia! Can’t wait to read the rest of their story and see through to their HEA with gore and violence and fun along the way. Congratulations!!! You deserve it.
…. and in my humble opinion one should not just read the book but also listen to the audiobook which helped me survive an endless session of housecleaning 😉
Congratulations to the House of Andrews, Mary your incredible powers of the word continue to be acknowledged on the book Lists as you continue to triumph over your competitors in this tourney ????????
Mary=May …and just when I thought I’d actually caught all of the autocorruptions ????????♀️
Congrats. Loved this & hope to see more from this story line eventually
Awesome and well deserved!!
Well deserved! This book had all the things I love about an IA book and also had its own voice.
Yay for #teammetalrose!
Glad to see the book doing so well despite the undeserved hate Julie gets.
Jessie Caldwell says
Congratulations! What wonderful news!
Yeah yeah yeah!!! This is great News:-) love it
Maria Schneider says
HUGE congrats! You know we love you!
Nancy C. says
YAYYYYYY. Awesome and well deserved accolades 🙂
Lynn R Butler says
So well deserved! What a read. Made my isolation bearable, answered those pesky lingering questions, and opened (I hope) roads into may future forays! Kudos!
Congratulations!!!Totally well deserved!!
I am rereading Blood Heir now. It’s so well crafted and I love the story. I want a sequel. All of the series are well worn favorites keeping me sane as I navigate working from my parents’ house after my dad’s stroke. Waiting for rehab placement. And dealing with mom’s memory issues. I will always buy anything you write.
Mary Carter says
Of course both you two and the book deserve it all, Blood Heir was everything I wanted and more! It’s cute that you’re so surprised though. ❤️ I’m not at all! ????????
Congratulations! That’s fantastic news!
Congrats guys!! Doesn’t surprise me at all. I’m chewing nails waitin’ on Ruby Fever (no pressure intended…weeelll, maybe just a little. ????)
If u guys don’t want to self-publish the next BH book, can u turn this into a big publishing coup deal?
Totally well deserved! I just finished re-reading all the KD books & side series, and Hugh’s, and finally Julie’s. This was the 3rd time through for Blood Heir – and I’m still catching little bits & pieces I missed the first two times! So many layers! And, there were several places that I realized both Julie & I missed that strongly hinted that Derek knew who she was! Too bad the Rose was hidden when he broke in; he might not have been so mad at the end if he knew she’d kept it all these years. … Nah, he would have come up with some dumb reason she kept it, not the real reason. 😉
What does BDH stand for?
Moderator R says
The BDH is the Book Devouring Horde aka the Ilona Andrews fandom ????
Virginia M Nall says
I cant wait for the next one!
Alison Parker says
That is amazing!! Congratulations and Thank you!
Bill G says
Whoo-Hoo! Congratulations! House Andrews ROCKS!
Rachel Sosa says
When will book 2 of Blood Heir surface?
Karen A. says
Congratulations! ????????????One of my best reads this year definitely! I can’t tell you how much I’ve re-read this book.
This is great news and well deserved!!
Bill G says
Lovely news. And well deserved.
Sue Gundel says
Awesome!! Congratulations to all!!
Angela Knight says
Congratulations! It was a delicious book, and I loved the heck out of it.
I’m not surprised at all. I loved that book so much. Preordered it, and the lift I got when it showed up on my screen ….
Kat in NJ says
Yay!!!!! Glad to hear this news, as it is so well-deserved!! ????
Whoot Whoot Whoot!
Congrats House Andrews. Well deserved ????????????
Totally deserved accolades – loved the book and long may you both continue your wonderful output – just finished re-reading the Edge series and it was still good!
I shall never cease to muppet flollop! Exactly.
Jean Morgan says
Monumental achievement, Congratulations House Andrew!
Congratulations and definitely deserved!
Fantastic news. Well deserved. I have my pristine copy the has the signed card and the “every day” copy that keeps getting reread. That way, when my well read copy falls apart I have a spare. I only do that with two writers books: all of HA’s books and Honor Raconteur’s Case Files, which Ilona had recommended. Thank yo again. Enjoy your success with the story you kindly started to help someone get through her day.
Wahida AlZubaidi says
That’s awesome! Congratulations!!!
Way to go BDH! ????
Audry PARKER says
Congratulations! As a long time member of the BDH, please add me to the Team Metal Rose as well. House Andrews rocks!
Cheryl M says
LOVE House Andrews! CONGRATULATIONS????????????
and heartfelt appreciation for all you do????
Love this book – totally deserved! Just read it again, and each time I catch new things that I missed before. Now I’m wondering about the “Shepherd of the Wolves”
Gina Raggette says
#TeamMetalRose indeed! ???? Congratulations, House Andrews!
Ann M says
Congratulations! A great reward for your writing and your dedication to your stories and readers(BDH). I think that this recognition will happen many more times in your future.
Duhh…..!!! I mean what part of this is surprising to all of us who eagerly anticipate EVERY SINGLE PUBLICATION from this author duo!?!?! Um…none. CONGRATS!! (And a side of SQUEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!). Super dignified.
Ellen D says
Congrats! Well deserved!
Lisa B. says
What absolutely fabulous news for House Andrews!!! Your books are wonderful. Blood Heir will always hold such a special place in our hearts ????, as it was your way of giving your fans a ray of sunshine during a horribly dark time. And what a terrific book it turned out to be. Congratulations are so well deserved‼️????????????????
Congrats! Well deserved 🙂
And thank you for the book.
It meant a lot to me, and got me through some very difficult times.
Shit yeah!!! Proud member of the BDH & House Andrews fangirl!
Mary O'Maley says
Bravo! Well deserved.
Monique J says
Kudos!! It is well deserved. I have a smile on my face for House Andrews because the book was really fab!
May House Andrews long reign! Congratulations! I enjoy every book your write (more than twice).
CJ Smith says
Yippee! Thank you for the wonderful story lines and great characters.
Now how about a movie? 🙂
Syrus Orelio says
No way a movie could ever do the these books justice, but if done right at least it wouldn’t disrespect them
The Harry Potter movies turned out good but Eragon was a disappointment and I love the Inheritance Cycle
Of course it was! No surprise there at all! I’m working my way up to it, I like re-reading the whole series every time a new book comes out! Yes, that’s how many times I’ve ready Magic Bites…
Diana N Rivis says
Yay!!! Well deserved!
Syrus Orelio says
I fell in love with your writing the moment I started magic bites years ago, while I’ve enjoyed all your other stores the Kate Daniels universe has remained my favorite and I think it’s likely to always stay that way
I love the way you combine active with sarcasm and humor, and the very unique and flamboyant characters you come up with makes them each stand out on their own. To be honest I have a hard time deciding who’s my favorite character because I absolutely love all of Kate gang(kate and her friends/family) I’ve even grown to love Hugh d’Ambray and Erra when I didn’t think I ever could
Greg W. says
Ok first off, Congrats!! Second you could not have chosen a better gif lol.
Congrats to House Andrews! So proud and happy for you all!
Grats!!! Team metal rose represent. We just need to send bribes to the mod to remove mention of any of those other teams and then everyone will be happy.
Mod R says
???? My bestie threatened to friend-divorce me because she ships Ascanio and Julie.
I’m incorruptible ????
Love!!! Thank you!
So we’ll deserved!! Congratulations
How greattttt! You’re amazing and deserve amazing things to happen to you.
What does BDH means?
Moderator R says
BDH means Book Devouring Horde, it’s short hand for the Ilona Andrews fans. ???? We can guess why hehe.
Yay! Who says good deeds never go unpunished. You very kindly made a whole lot of people much happier with your writing. And, by gosh, it has been appreciated. Thank you. Take a bow. Take several you’ve earned them.
Bigmama Battillo says
Congratulations! This is a recognition you have received for the excellence of your whole body of work, I am sure. Keep writing and as a huge fan I also encourage you both to write faster! 🙂
Congratulations!!!! You earned it and I’m glad your excellent writing and plotting and everything is getting the recognition it should! Wahoo!
YAY!!! It was such a bright spot in a tough year. I read it when recovering from my 4th surgery in 2020 and it was just the best escape. So happy to see you get the accolades you deserve! Team Metal Rose Forever!
Rhonda Conley says
Still anxiously awaiting the next Iron Covenant.
Hoping for more Blood Heir, Julie and Derek need their HEA. Besides I miss Erra.
Rereading Kate Daniels (again)
because I finished Innkeeper reread (again).After I read all the Edge and the Legacy novels.
Truly, Ilona and Gordon have helped me keep my sanity this past year.
