    Into the Fire, the 4th and final book in the Night Prince Series..to be honestthis book didn t do it for me At all The big Vlad and Leila love story finale But where was the love, the romance It was a series of fights, andfightskillings andkillings of bad guys And Leila and Vlad dashing off from one place to another trying to findbad guys to kill I liked Ian, the badass vampire we were first introduced in the Night Huntress S Into the Fire, the 4th and final book in the Night Prince Series..to be honestthis book didn t do it for me At all The big Vlad and Leila love story finale But where was the love, the romance It was a series of fights, andfightskillings andkillings of bad guys And Leila and Vlad dashing off from one place to another trying to findbad guys to kill I liked Ian, the badass vampire we were first introduced in the Night Huntress Series but in this book he comes across as a really irritating and idiotic..his lines were most of the time, really tastelessAh, Leotie, my beauteous poppet, I take back everything I said about you being an uppity crone Take me to your bed, I promise endless delights I ll even limit myself to tongues only Always happy to accommodate a preferenceAt first, I actually laughed at some of the things he comes out with but after a while, his lines become boring and monotonous all this slapstick stuffGrand, Ian said in a tone that implied he felt the opposite Does anyone else feel the sudden need for a shagAnd.it just continuesMy jaw dropped You d seriously bang a dragon Oh, for days, he responded at once Can you imagine the Internet videos I d be a bloody legendThis series started off well for me but as it progressed, I kind of felt a bit let down I missed the romance and love that comes across in the Night Huntress Series Cat Bones.who never make an appearance in this book and which I really missed The ending was meh Vlad and Leila go off into the sunset to have their HEA Seriously And it looks as if the next book is going to be Ian shopefully he s going to be a bitdeeper than we see in this story If you ve read the previous 3 books and love Vlad and Leila, then you will have to read this book like I did..Despite my feelings

    1 Once Burned 2 Twice Tempted 3 Bound by Flames I have been reading Jeaniene Frost for a very long time, and I ve loved and devoured everything she has touched This book was long awaited, and pushed back very many times for personal reasons seriously, this book has the best acknowledgments I ve ever read, and it made me love and respect Jeaniene evenso , but unfortunately this book didn t work for me at all.Now I m questioning myself and wondering if I ve just grown 1 Once Burned 2 Twice Tempted 3 Bound by Flames I have been reading Jeaniene Frost for a very long time, and I ve loved and devoured everything she has touched This book was long awaited, and pushed back very many times for personal reasons seriously, this book has the best acknowledgments I ve ever read, and it made me love and respect Jeaniene evenso , but unfortunately this book didn t work for me at all.Now I m questioning myself and wondering if I ve just grown out of this series world I think back to a lot of books I ve given five stars and loved when I was young and in high school and college, and I m pretty confident they wouldn t be five star reads if I reread them When I was younger, I would ignore a lot of problematic shit that I no longer will stand for, and I felt like this book had a spotlight on Vlad and his problematic behavior constantly I used to love Vlad, I even wanted Cat to get with him over Bones, but the way he acted in this book was so unacceptable and inexcusable Again, this really scares me about books I ve rated in the past, because Vlad was controlling, belittling, secretive, and hurt many people in this book, including Leila, the love of his life and our main protagonist It was gross, Vlad was gross And Vlad forcefully lying and stopping Leila from participating in the battles that directly impacted whether or not she lived was super fucking annoying I mean, one time He s protective and maybe scared Two times Okay, he didn t learn his lesson Three times This is getting old, really fast One hundred times Also, another thing I used to love about this world was the amazing, top tier sex scenes anyone else remember the shower scene from Once Burned And I m not sure if it is because of Vlad s problematic grossness, or what, but the sex in this book wasn t even good It was forced and unnecessary and I couldn t care less Beyond everything else I can say and complain about, the biggest issue with this book is that it feels like a prequel setting up for Ian s book, which will probably be super interesting, but it made Leila and Vlad s conclusion feel extra bad Ian is a very old and powerful vampire we are first introduced to in the Night Huntress series Like most of the badass vampires in this world, Mencheres sired turned made them, therefore Ian is very, very loyal to him, which he proves unquestionably in this book Ian is also a very big partier, who has no desire to settle down anytime soon Ian was honestly giving me huge Elliot from The Magicians vibes, which makes me so beyond words excited Like, we need all the pansexual representation we can get, and if Jeaniene is going to showcase that, I m so here for it and will ignore this last Vlad and Leila book I m just hoping that we weren t already introduced to Ian s, very female, romantic interest at the end of this book All signs point to yes , but I m still hoping And if she has to be his love interest, let him have a lot of fun with both males and females before he turns into the protective alpha male who only wants to marry and sex up his brand new love interest Another side character that got a really big part, and I m guessing will have a spin off too, is Maximus, who used to be my favorite character I mean, I obviously still like him, but the new relationship path he is choosing to take feels very strange to me, for many different reasons Maybe I need to sit on this information for longer, but as of now I am not a fan of this forced matchup I think another important thing I need to say about this book is that it does have a Native American depiction that I m not sure is correct This book, and all the twists and turns, are heavily influenced by Cherokee people, which I am not sure is an accurate representation Reading these chapters made me a little uncomfortable, but, again, I am not a Cherokee Native and I have never lived on a reservation before, but I just thought I would state that this could be a problematic depiction All in all, this book didn t work for me It feels really bad, because I used to love this series and world so much, but I have to be honest with myself I also owe it to everyone that takes the time to read my reviews to point out problematic and hurtful things If you ve followed this series for as long as I have, I hope you enjoy this closure on Vlad and Leila s chapter, and I hope we all aren t disappointed with Ian s new beginning Blog Twitter Tumblr Instagram Youtube Twitch

    Ok, so The question that bugs me the most after reading this book is this one what s the optimal speed at which Vlad can fly Because, you know, sometimes he flies a chopper instead of just using his gift which makes me believe that he s slower than the chopper But then there are times when he flies out of an exploding building right before it goes boom That has to be pretty fast, right You now understand my confusion But that s neither here nor there Either way, I have enjoyed this Ok, so The question that bugs me the most after reading this book is this one what s the optimal speed at which Vlad can fly Because, you know, sometimes he flies a chopper instead of just using his gift which makes me believe that he s slower than the chopper But then there are times when he flies out of an exploding building right before it goes boom That has to be pretty fast, right You now understand my confusion But that s neither here nor there Either way, I have enjoyed this series thoroughly and, even though I ve read the first 3 books back to back and had to wait for this 4th installment for what seems like FOREVER, I still remembered most of the plot, which made me VERRA happy Because that just goes to show how original this story and its characters are I really recommend this to anyone who loves PNR with vampires the hero is this is a badass vamp and anything to do with special magical abilities, spells and other similar kind of SHTUFF You know the one This series is action packed, has some steam, angst and even fun banter I laughed and I even cried a little at the end

    3.5 Demons, Witches, and Magic Oh My StarsI ve been anxiously awaiting what seems like a very long time for Vlad s final book Sadly, It wasn t what I had hoped for..don t get me wrong, I didn t hate it but I didn t love it as much as I wanted to There are some fun moments between Vlad and Layla, but, honestly Ian kind of stole the show in this one To me this readlike a prequel to Ian s book s rather than a Night Prince Novel New plot twists, storylines, and changes3.5 Demons, Witches, and Magic Oh My StarsI ve been anxiously awaiting what seems like a very long time for Vlad s final book Sadly, It wasn t what I had hoped for..don t get me wrong, I didn t hate it but I didn t love it as much as I wanted to There are some fun moments between Vlad and Layla, but, honestly Ian kind of stole the show in this one To me this readlike a prequel to Ian s book s rather than a Night Prince Novel New plot twists, storylines, and changes in current characters were introduced, but, I felt like I was left hanging on a couple of the storylines Vlad and Leila bounced from one dramatic situation to another, involving magic, demons, and witches and it was just too much at times for my likingIf you think this is impressive, I know a fellow whose wife can shapeshift into an ancient dragon I ache with envy at the thought of shagging one of those My jaw dropped You d seriously bang a dragon Oh, for days, he responded at once Can you imagine the Internet videos I d be a bloody legend Ian Layla In this book Layla discovers and embraces a newly discovered heritage power and her roots Unfortunately, Layla s hated inner blasted voice is back and just as irritating as ever, as is her constant references to her carnival days Vlad groupies myself included don t despair Vlad is just as swoon worthy as ever maybe evenswoon worthy as he does everything in his formidable power to find a way to break the spell Layla has been saddled with His blind devotion and love for Layla is the best part of this book, the lengths he will go to, to save Layla is truly a thing of beauty I m eager for the next series Jeaniene Frost will bring to us featuring a favorite character, bad Vamp Ian and I m hoping Veritas, who I personally think will be a fun, entertaining match for this delicious naughty Vampire , and hopefully we ll get answers to unresolved storylines in this book

    LeilaI love you, I thought again, trying to force the words into his mind From the fresh wave of emotions that rolled over mine, he d heard me I love you, I repeated as my vision went black and everything else slipped away ForeverVladAnything for you First of all I have to say that Vlad and Leila is one of my favourite paranormal romance couples.Vlad is one of my favourite antiheroes in general Leila is one of the strongest, most talented, bravest and smartest heroines I LeilaI love you, I thought again, trying to force the words into his mind From the fresh wave of emotions that rolled over mine, he d heard me I love you, I repeated as my vision went black and everything else slipped away ForeverVladAnything for you First of all I have to say that Vlad and Leila is one of my favourite paranormal romance couples.Vlad is one of my favourite antiheroes in general Leila is one of the strongest, most talented, bravest and smartest heroines I have read about.If this was another book about them and the epilogue of their love story, I would have given 5 stars But somehow most of the time in the book 1 Vlad and Leila are not on the spotlight.a I don t care what happens to Leila s sister This is not her story And anyway I am not a fan of what happens to her And I did not like Maximus interaction and interest I like Maximus, but I have negative feelings for Gretchen.b I don t like that Ian steals the show onetime Now that all the focus should be on Vlad and Leila, Ian and his stupid decision with the demon feels like a filler I can understand that this will be the beginning of his own books with Veritas, but it shouldn t be introduced in this book 2 Vlad does things alone Leila does things alone.a What is the point of Leila s discovery of her Cherokee heritage And how this is tied to Vlad Who cares b Why Vlad keeps hiding things from Leila They have be through so many dangerous things together Why Vlad is still a jerk and makes her suffer with his secrets and lies I could not understand his reasoning.If we add to the following comments the death of one of my favourite characters in the previous books, it will be obvious that I had a hard time finishing this book And honestly this should not be the end Vlad and Leila could have had so manygreat adventures together with their special abilities and their unique love.The Epilogue was short and not that satisfying.Good bye Vlad and Leila I will possibly see you again in Ian s books

    3.5 4 starsIt appears you re right I simply can t go an entire day without murdering someoneGosh I wanted to love this book so bad, the first three books in the series were amazing, and while this one was enjoyable I merely liked it instead of loved it I remember getting a newsletter about Frost s family, I felt so much for this author Her mom dying then repeated issues with her dad s health, that sthan anyone should have to take in Knowing this, as a true fan would do, 3.5 4 starsIt appears you re right I simply can t go an entire day without murdering someoneGosh I wanted to love this book so bad, the first three books in the series were amazing, and while this one was enjoyable I merely liked it instead of loved it I remember getting a newsletter about Frost s family, I felt so much for this author Her mom dying then repeated issues with her dad s health, that sthan anyone should have to take in Knowing this, as a true fan would do, I understood and knew she needed to take her time to write this book and I think the wait was worth it FYI, this is all mentioned in an introduction of the book as well.I had to reread the entire series before picking up this final book, as I had picked it up and by page 3 I was terribly lost Hence an epic reread of some of the best PNR there is No author has the voice that Frost has So much witty humor and so much emotion packed into her books There s a reason I ll read anything she publishes.This fourth novel involves Vlad and Leila working to destroy the link between her and a powerful necromancer Their bodies and lives are tied together, so if one of them dies, the other does too But finding the necromancer proves to bedifficult than anticipated.My favorite part of this book was the crossover of the character Ian That man no doubt was the best part, bringing endless comic relief and making me laugh my ass off out loud in public I swear this man needs his own spin off ASAP The flawed aspect of this book is it s almost information overload and focuseson action than the romance and relationship between Leila and Vlad I can understand why fans were let down by this book.The Night Prince series is one you must read Look past the god awful covers and you ll discover one of your favorite romance couples Follow me on Facebook Blog Instagram Twitter
