Review: Bound by Flames (Night Prince #3)

Vlad and his newly turned bride, Leila, are at odds with each other--and vulnerable to the one vampire powerful enough to end the Dark Prince's reign ...

Bound by Flames, by Jeaniene Frost, is the third novel in the Night Prince series. Leila, a human with an gift to absorb electricity and read visions, spent most of her adult years on the carnival circuit. What her experience had not taught her was her new life as a vampire or, more surprisingly, how to be married to the most famous 500-year-old vampire of all, Vlad Dracul (also known as Dracula). Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, but the real battle is about to begin with an old nemesis returns with a vengeance.

Vlad must battle an enemy with a centuries-old grudge and whose influence that spans across continents. One tiny mistake can mean the difference between life and death. When Vlad's people are attacked on his home turf and turned on each other due to mysterious magic, Vlad must think carefully and strategically. It isn't like Vlad to feel fear, but he does for Leia when she is kidnapped by the enemy. As friend and foe align against him, Vlad's love for his new bride could be the very thing that dooms them both ...

Bound by Flames is another excellent addition to the Night Huntress World series with special attention to Vlad. Readers will see Vlad in his most vulnerable state when he almost loses his composure when Leila is kidnapped by an ancient foe. With secrecy on her whereabouts, Vlad must rely on his friends to help end this battle Bones and Cat make brief cameo appearances when Vlad needs Cat's assistance in necromancy to rescue Leila. The rescue mission is not easy when Vlad and Leila must make dangerous decisions that could lead to end of each other. While Vlad may had lost his childhood home in the battle, he can always rebuild a new home with his new bride by his side.

Stay tuned for the final novel in the Night Prince series, Into the Fire.
