Publisher's Summary

In the explosive finale to New York Times best-selling author Jeaniene Frost's Night Prince series, Vlad is in danger of losing his bride to an enemy whose powers might prove greater than the Prince of Vampires'. In the wrong hands, love can be a deadly weapon.

For nearly 600 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.

Jeaniene please write another story of Vlad and Leila. This can't be the end? Wow Tavia Gilbert you are magnificent. In all the other females reader of audiobooks, you are by far the best. You make me feel every feelings, emotions and your voice is incredible, the way you manage to give each character a voice of their own. I want more of this. Its a magnificent, thrilling suspenseful and action packed and the hot sizzling romance between Vlad and Leila, their deep unconditional love to each other. Thanks both 🙏❤️

What a Rollercoaster Ride Loved it.

This is the final in the Night Prince Series. I've loved all this series. Jeaniene Frost is a tallented writer and Tavia Gilbert is a very tallented narrator. As always this book starts off running, straight into the action and adventure. What makes this book even better, Ian is in a good portion of this book. Even though he's a reprobate he is loveable. And so funny Vlad is also funny in his dry way. This book gives you a small look into one of the reasons Ian is the way he is. And this book leads into his own series. Finally. Also you get to see who his love interest will be. And I guessed right.This book is full of laughter and tears like all Jeaniene's books. This was a fun but emotional read. Lots of twists, turns and surprises. Brilliant listen.

Kinda Disappointed

I was a bit disappointed in this story. I don't feel like Vlad had much growth and the "female bows down to her alpha male" became grating and I never thought so before on the other books in the series. I get Vlad has been alive for centuries and he's set in his ways, but having Layla meet him way more than halfway over and over, and all the excuses made for him hiding things that were suddenly "okay and understood" was ridiculous. The story was decent, but by the end I was ready for it to be over. The narrator was really good, but the book continually declined for me as it went on.

Really good conclusion to the series :D

4-4.5 stars

This was a really good story and conclusion to the series. I will say that I still love Vlad and Leila and I was so happy to see how things turned out for them.

Frost certainly came up with some twists in this story and there were a few moments when I was stunned and sure that what I read had to be a trick of some sort. Cat and Bones don't make an appearance in this story but Mencheres and Ian both do and there's a pretty serious setup for Ian's book (and maybe even a hint of who Ian ends up with...) that certainly perked my interest. Vlad and Leila were still great together, persevering even when things go off-kilter (particularly when Vlad over-steps things a bit). My only complaint was that the story seemed to falter slightly in the bad guy area (and maybe the Gretchen situation). When Szilagyi died at the end of book #3, I was happy that he was finally gone but Mircea wasn't a very good replacement, especially considering how his circumstances changed almost immediately. We're left with a somewhat unknown bad guy situation and a bit of confusion of what the heck was happening and who was trying to pull who's strings. The strings were still being pulled so don't think there was a lack of baddies doing stuff that caused Vlad and Leila drama and danger...there definitely was.

Regardless of the confusion over the bad guy situation, Leila, Vlad and their friends manage to work things out by the end, allowing them to proceed to a (hopefully less eventful) HEA together. The characters are still great and really sucked me into the story. The story was quick paced, interesting and kept me well engaged throughout....I'd definitely recommend the series. :D

I was disappointed

After waiting so long for this book, I have to say I was disappointed. I know Vlad is an angry dude but it just got to be too much with him constantly pissed off. Thank God for Ian. In my opinion, Ian was the only saving grace. And this is the first time Tavia Gilbert's narration got on my nerves...but I think that was due to Vlad's pissiness and Layla's ... well, I dont even know, but I found Layla annoying.

Ian hijacked Vlad & Leila's HEA

What should have been a fiery finish to Jeaniene Frost’s NIGHT PRINCE series was a bit of a dud. INTO THE FIRE was all about Ian which made Vlad & Leila the protagonists of this story in name only. Per an FAQ on the author’s website, there’s a spin-off in the works for the former, and I get the need to propagate that message, but this could have been done in a more tasteful manner rather than hijacking Dracula’s happily-ever-after.

I still got a fair amount of enjoyment out of this novel including some good laughs. We learn about the origins of the heroine’s powers, and Mencheres makes an appearance, although the shock factor in relation to his character was a bit of a joke because I didn’t believe for one second that that thing that happened actually did, there’s just no way. That being said, I did get a kick out of the male cast sprouting boobs and totally owning their glamoured disguises.

Vlad & Leila’s fairy tale ending lacked passion—the token sex scene notwithstanding—there were too many secrets between them for a couple who’s supposedly embracing forever together, and the resolution vis-à-vis Mircea was so corny. Frost could have made this into a killer trilogy, but instead book 4 came along, and crapped the bed. This is the lowest rating that I’ve ever given something that was written by this author, and it really makes me sad.

I pre-ordered this audio months before its release because Tavia Gilbert is an experienced narrator whose familiarity with this universe and its inhabitants is beyond measure. She reads Dracula’s parts well without falling into the stereotypical trap that would be all too easy to adopt, and the energy that she brings to the love making bits will leave you blushing and a little jealous. Her voice was the saving grace of this audiobook.

INTO THE FIRE is where your paperback copy should go. However, if you really must, listen instead.

Meh

Ok I normally love every book in this series and all the Night Huntress spin offs. This one however just had me confused. All of a sudden Ian has magical powers and knows how to cast spells? I would have been more into it had a even a hint of this been in the original series somewhere. I just couldn't get fully immersed into it. The first 2 I enjoyed a lot. This one...not so much. It was a bit to confusing to me.

It was okay....

The overall story was great and the performance was great; however, I think I've grown out of the whole female adult acting like a complete child in the middle of every crisis. Sigh.... I still love the Characters (Vlad, Ian, Marty, Maximus, plus characters from the original series...Mancheres, Cat, Bones, Marie etc).

Great ending

I love this series not just because it's about my favorite vampire, but I love the characters and the journey. This is a tragic and beautiful love story between two people that fate needed to bring together.
I finally see Ian in his own book and Maximus too. I can't wait.

Meh

Except for the surprise near the end of the book....the writing is corny. There is waaaaay too much internal dialogue and predictable lines. I found myself groaning out loud at some of the conversations between Leila and Vlad. On the whole I really like this series and have reread many of the books multiple times. This one missed the mark. The best part of this book is the possibility of a spin-off with Ian and the law guardian.

Were Leila and Vlad always this terrible?

I listened to this book mostly in shock. I don't know if they've become extra awful or if I just didn't realize their true natures, but these people (vampire people) were jerks. They believed that being in love justified whatever they decided to do. Nobody outside their little bubble of two was safe. I don't even want to guess this book's body count. It's a good thing that this was the final book in the seeie because I was done with these hypocritical sociopaths regardless. Also, while I normally love Tavia Gilbert, her narration did nothing for me this time out. This book didn't work for me on any level.

SOB SOB.. PARTING IS SUCH SWEET SORROW

Three days!!.. that's all it took for this new addition to the Night Prince series to become an Audible Bestseller.. and for it to get 132 5 star ratings (not including mine).. and there's no wonder as Vlad and Leila face their final battle before getting their HEA ending. Every chapter gripped me as JF weaved a tense tale which included vampires, necromancers, demons, a law guardian, witches, revenge, death, tears, magic, romance, sex, twists.. and Vlad had to re-live his worst day - which nearly ended up killing the love of his life.

It was jam-packed with supernatural suspense and JF has used Tavia Gilbert to narrate all of her books and there's no wonder - she brings to life a multitude of characters, injects the storyline with all the right feels and her talented voice manages dialects, genders and paranormal entities with ease.

Worth a credit? Yes - This has got to be the best in the series and it's sad that it's ended.. but I wonder what fantasy she's going to entertain us with next?

Brilliant Complex Plot

I love Jeaniene Frost books - adored the Cat and Bones series and loved this ,Vlad and Leila set. As always Vlad is trying to keep Leila safe and the forces in play are trying to stop him.

We see a number of the previous characters who hold pivotal roles in the storyline plus necromancers and demons.

As the tale progresses the are two events that I had not expected including a betrayal. I read so much that I can often see where the storyline is going but I love it when it doesn't progress as expected.

Although I understand this is the last book in this series I am sure there must be a book to come which follows Ian and the Law Guardian, Veritas.

Brilliant Complex Plot as always from Jeaniene Frost. I believe I am prejudiced as I immediately buy any new book as it appears

Didnt Enjoy This book as much as the last one

I didnt enjoy this book as much as the last one in this series.
I think Leila was just a tool to use for a few too many "how much pain can we make her endure" scenes.
The story was a little repetitive.
Leila gets hurt, Vlad gets mad, it just seemed bland.
There was a few good chapters, but they all seemed to contain Ian as the driving force for my enjoyment.
I think I'm just tired of Liela put through the worst pain possible, for Vlad to get his rage on.
I didnt hate this book, but I think im just tired of the dynamics between Liela and Vlad.
on a side note, for a 500yr+ Vampire he needs some new tricks in the bedroom..

Not a great final book to the series

This book seemed like a bit of a jumbled mess, with random scenes and then rushing off to somewhere else to kill more people. The earlier books in the series were much better. The relationship didn’t seem as strong either. Still an ok listen but nowhere near as good as what the author can do. Shame!

Amazing story

Another amazing story by Jeaniene Frost, loving the interesting take on the historical character Vlad Tepesh. Horror, supernatural elements, romance & smut - makes for a brilliant listen. Brilliant series. Tavia Gilbert is very good at bringing the characters & the story to life! Definitely recommend! Couldn't put it down - listened to it at work. I love how the characters have evolved over the series. Upset the series has ended.

love this series!

I really enjoyed this series, it's engaging, with a great story arc, romantic, surprising in parts and funny. if your a fan of sc-fi love stories, it's well worth a listen.

I love Leila the main character and I love that the entire story is told from in her head, particularly early on with Vhlad, there were some great laugh out loud moments. she equally frustrated the he'll out of me at times, which I guess was the point because these books are as much about the emotions. good and bad, between varying relationships, family, lover's, friends etc as anything else.

the Vhlad/ Dracula thing was genious, gets funnier throughout the books. and I loved the way the villain in each book is played out throughout the series, it links together very well.

the narrator is great to, she really brings life to all the characters, they are all very individually themselves, none of the frustrating several characters sounding like the same person business. she did have an occasional tendency to get really excited in her reading at certain points, which was mostly great as it added to the building tension or whatever but occasionally did make me laugh out loud - which I doubt was the intention - but it didn't lesson my enjoyment of listening to these books in any way.

Hope that's enough to give you a good feeling about reading the series without giving anything away for you!
Enjoy!
