Review: Into the Fire by Jeaniene Frost

Into the Fire Title: Into the Fire
By: Jeaniene Frost
Series: Night Prince Book #4
BookWhisperer Rating:

Finale to the Night Prince Series
In the wrong hands, love can be a deadly weapon.

For nearly six hundred years, Vlad Tepesh cared for nothing, so he had nothing to lose. His brutal reputation ensured that all but the most foolhardy stayed away. Now falling in love with Leila has put him at the mercy of his passions. And one adversary has found a devastating way to use Vlad’s new bride against him.

A powerful spell links Leila to the necromancer Mircea. If he suffers or dies, so does she. Magic is forbidden to vampires, so Vlad and Leila enlist an unlikely guide as they search for a way to break the spell. But an ancient enemy lies in wait, capable of turning Vlad and Leila’s closest friends against them…and finally tearing the lovers apart forever.

Oh Ms. Jeaniene Frost how I love the way your wicked mind works. It never ceases to amaze me that this wonderful author never runs out of stories. Vlad and Leila continue there dark and dangerous journey to find Vlad's step son Mircea. The conclusion of book 3 left us knowing of Mircea's link to Leila, but early development in this new installment proves to be everyone worst nightmare. Just as Vlad has always predicted his enemies will always take advantage of weakness. Proven by Mircea capture, and the torture that Leila will endure as they convince Vlad to jump through hoops. As a deep lover of everything Frost; imagine new surprise to see the introduction of Ian in a Vlad story. I just love his player personality, and his overwhelmingly constant whorish mentality. A lot like Vlad, one has to see Ian's respect and loyalty through actions and gestures. This promises to be few and far between, and when we will see them the impact is so deeply profound. It was interesting to see the kinship develop between his character and Leila. I didn't really expect it, and it reminds me a great deal of the relationship that developed between Cat and Vlad. It was inevitable that as this journey continued relationships would be altering, and while I was impressed with Vlad's manipulation of situation it was not without cost. While understanding and acceptance is understood by all parties lines have clearly been drawn, and sides will have to be chosen. The conclusion of this story sheds light into a dim horizon, and I can foresee a battle on the horizon. Only this time I can see all of our beloved character of the Night Huntress and Night Prince Worlds in the destruction zone.
