Into the Fire by Jeaniene Frost
“It appears you’re right — I simply can’t go an entire day without murdering someone.”
Gosh 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’s more than 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 be more difficult 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 focuses more on 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!
