Melissa's Review:

Into the Fire is book four in the Night Prince series. This is the last book in the series and I couldn't wait to see how it wrapped up. This series is a spin off from the Night Huntress books and the lead characters are Vlad (don't ever call him Dracula) and Leila. The previous book had a lot of big things going on and left a few things to be tied up in this novel. I thought it wrapped up everything well and can't recommend this series enough.

We start off with Leila and Vlad hunting down Mircea, a necromancer that linked himself to Leila with a spell in the previous book. The spell is quite powerful even though it backfired and now anytime Leila or Mircea is injured it happens to the other. We see Mircea toying with Leila by cutting himself and linking to her so they can have chats. It's all fun and games until someone takes Mircea prisoner in order to play on Vlad's one weakness, his wife Leila. He'll do anything in order to protect the ones he loves and they're counting on that. Vlad and Leila have to figure out where Mircea is being held before it costs them her life. Their leads are all seeming like dead ends and left me a bit worried for our leading lady.

Into The Fire is a great conclusion to a series I couldn't get enough of. I'm sad to see it end, but thought it wrapped things up nicely. There isn't a whole lot going on in this novel since the main focus is finding Mircea and figuring out who captured him. We do get some face time with character both in the Night Huntress series as well as the previous books in this series. I always enjoy seeing those cameos. All in all, I've adored this series and highly suggest it if you enjoy Urban Fantasy with vampires. While you don't have to read the Night Huntress series before you start these I'd suggest it since they're a fabulous read!

  4. aww another series comes to a close :( I really need to catch up with Cat and Bones but I'm scared of letting them go, weird huh?
    I love her writing, so it was awesome she branched out from the same world with a different character

    1. You know, I'm exactly like that as well. I'll delay reading the last book in a series for quite awhile so I don't have to face that it's ending

  8. This felt almost more like a build up to Ian than a finale for Vlad. I did enjoy it a lot. I love this world and characters. I was a little sad to not have any Cat/Bones time.
