I did really enjoy his book, and most definitely recommend you listen to this on audio, but I had hoped for a more final ending. I just have to assume maybe we'll get some of these answers in the following series, the next being Ian's.
I recommend this book to fans of this series and absolutely will be rereading/listening to this series many more times.
Vlad and Leila must travel into the underground of magic users to find a way to sever the tie but can it be done without death?
Ms. Frost fleshes out the back story of Leila as we learn more about her past and own talents. We also see just how far Leila and Vlad are willing to go for their love.
Hint: This book leads into the next series where we get to see Ian as he finds his own love.

The story starts at a cracking pace, we are plunged directly into action set pieces and yet I feel the first part of the book was padded out. So much so that I was tempted to start skipping to try to find the meat of the story. I resisted and read it properly, my reward was some of the humour and sharp dialogue the series is known for, the price I paid was having one of my least favourite characters, Ian, join the team.
After three books we think we know all about Leilas' history but in this book we find out where her power really comes from and it feels like JF is producing a rabbit out of a hat. There are some big surprises along the way regarding Leilas' family only for this thread to be shelved and tied off at the end by a throwaway sentence in the epilogue. The pace picks up just over halfway through the book, this is the bit that didn't fit into book three I believe. We get another couple of big action sequences where Leila gets to show her ability to save the day and JF sets up the new series she is writing and then all of a sudden the book wraps up. There are some serious loose ends that get a passing mention and a few that are just left hanging.
The new series will pick up on some of those threads but the main Vlad and Leila story is at an end so why do I feel unsatisfied? Possibly because after all that padding earlier on the end is rather rushed, as though JF suddenly realised she had hit her word limit and had to stop.
Perhaps this means that we are going to see a lot of this couple in the next series, if only to answer the question of what actually are they going to do about Mircea!
You need to read this book if you have read the first three, but it's not one of her best. It won't stop me trying her next series as I know she can do a better job than this, even if I have to put up with Ian.
I have had a copy on my kindle now for well over a year but wanted to reread the rest of the series before embarking on this final instalment.
Well after finally getting around to rereading and then onto this all I can say was it was definitely worth the wait and I really did adore everything about this.
Slightly sad to be leaving Vlad and Leila behind now but also ever so glad that the conclusion here to there epic love story and adventure together lived up to all my expectations, and they sure were huge folks.
I believe I have mentioned that this is one of my top vampire romance series ever so was crossing my fingers and toes that this last book would be worthy and it was.
So this was action-packed from page one it really was non-stop throughout.
This was such an integral part to Vlad and Leila's onward journey as they undertake the massive feat of attempting to break the spell that is metaphorically holding an axe over both their heads.
Vlad is using all his many wiles to extract them both from the predicament they currently find themselves in and he will do and sacrifice anything or anybody to save his beloved Leila she is his whole world.
This book was equal parts amusing but also then heart-wrenching it really was a satisfying conclusion to this ongoing saga.
As I said earlier I am sad to be saying goodbye to these two, but do also hope to catch future cameos of them again in future books set in this world.
Also looking forward to getting to know Ian better, he does intrigue me and After the way, his hand evolved here should be an interesting ride.
This was a fantastic series that I highly recommend a five-star experience all the way.
I held off reading this as I really didn't want the adventures of Vlad and Leila to end. I've finally finished it and I'm finding this review very difficult to write. There's no doubt that this series has been fun and exciting to read and at times the drama has been truly stomach turning so as this began I was prepared for all kinds of shocks. Well the biggest shock for me was sitting here and realising that the really big elephant in the room hasn't gone away! We know that at the end of the last book Bound by Flames Leila had her soul linked to evil necromancer Mircea so if he dies she dies. Quite a conundrum for Vlad to solve but knowing it's his own stepson who has cast the spell has really stirred him up. Vlad has always been uber protective because yes he is hundreds of years old and very traditional but at times here I just couldn't believe the way he acts.
Lots of traveling around in this book and happily for this reader an explanation (finally ) as to just why Leila survived being hit by so many volts. I liked this thread as her heritage really helped to expand the story. However with the appearance of Ian who readers will recognise from the Night Huntress novels I just felt confused. Yes he's a vampire and yes he can perform magic that is against their laws but it was as if he had gone through a complete personality transplant! I've never liked him but here he acted like a tacky pantomime villain who plainly is being set up for his own redemption and book. Although I'm happy to admit the glamour he provided the big hunky guys with had me laughing out loud. So if you've ever wondered what Vlad would be like if he released his inner drag queen then here's the answer!
So it's over and favourite characters reunite to take on the big bad but it's not Mircea who is the ultimate villain as new players step up and for me that ending felt too trite unfortunately. I've loved this couple and yet I'm left thinking what? Remember that elephant? Yes as this story ends not only do I feel a bit like smacking Vlad but come on nothing has really changed. Yes I know we see a pathetic needy side to Mircea and there's what I'd call a temporary solution so I can only hope that Ian will reconnect with Vlad and Leila . I strongly suspect with help from supernatural law enforcement Ian is going to be doing his best to prove that he's a worthy hero but I'm still not convinced but if anyone can make him heroic it's Ms Frost.
Leila is still tied to Mircea and Vlad will go to any length to keep her alive. It should have been an easier task, now that his nemesis, Szilagyi has been eliminated. It turns out that there is more going on, making the stakes even higher.
There are new players who are taking advantage of the situation between Leila and Mircea, knowing that's she is Vlad's weakness. They resort into blackmailing him in doing something that would destroy him. This doesn't leave him with much choice if he wants to spare Leila.
It's an intricate plot involving dark magic, necromancers and demons. Leila is surprised when her true heritage comes to light. It's baffling but answers a lot of her questions. She is one powerful lady! There are some brutal battles but there are some parts which had me in stitches. Vlad in disguise and the way he carries it through is something to behold. Wonderful! Ian brings so much delight to the story that I can't help but love him. I have really enjoyed this series and all the is well that ends well.
There are indications that Ian is getting his own story but what about Maximus? He has contributed so much to the series, it will be nice to see him with a well deserved happy ending!
