Leila’s years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she didn’t learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about to begin…

Vlad must battle with a centuries-old enemy whose re

It was a great read, but for some reason I just felt there were too many damn pages to describe one short event. And, seriously? Again? Another book about the heroine being kidnapped all over again??? I don't know, it just felt wrong and repetitive. I had truly higher expectations for this series. I used to enjoy reading about the main characters so much, but I never felt like the relationship evolved or changed in any significant way. The story was too similar to t

This is an another awesome instalment with no stop action. Leila will be taken by Vlad's worst enemy.
Can much can she endure? The torturing? The skinning alive? The dismembering? The lack of blood? The rape?

Bound by Flames, the 3rd book in the Night Prince series is, in my opinion, the best of the 3 so far. It's loaded with twists and turns and things I didn't see coming, things that had me on the edge of my seat, frantic to find out how Vlad and Leila would get out of their current mess - and who was going to die a painful death for putting them in that mess. Vlad takes vengeance to a whole new level, all the while being amazingly

I had high hopes. Really high hopes...and yeah some of them were met, but it wasn't as perfect as I thought it would be. I had a blast reading never the less. So, let's get this party started!

I really wanted to like this instalment after being disappointed with the first two books in the Night Prince series. I tried really hard not to get irritated by the awful heroine but that failed spectacularly, which was a shame since I actually like the Night Huntress world and have enjoyed past heroines/heroes. I just couldn't with the ridiculous Leila though, she was such a bland insufferable cow.

Re-read with the girls at BB&B. Still a 2.5 star read for me for the reasons listed below.

Original review Aug 2015:

I really wish that Vlad and Leila’s series only took up one book instead of the three. I loved Vlad in the original Night Huntress series but his own stories seemed to have lacked something. He doesn’t play off Leila as well as some of the other characters in the series and that made this side series my least favorite.

Part of the problem is that I don’t really like Leila very much.

Bound by Flames by Jeaniene Frost is the 3rd book in the Night Prince Series, and continues the story of Vlad Dracul and Leila.

This was pretty dark. Leila is kidnapped, tortured, skinned alive, almost raped by the most evil and sinister and menacing vampire ever...Szilavyi, who is Vlad's enemy and who blows up Vlad's home!!! Most of the story is devoted to the horrible things that happens to Leila and Vlad. There wasn't much romance or sex here!!!

I'm going to fangirl all over this review. I can just feel it in my bones. This is such an amazing series, and probably the best spin-off series I've ever read. I loved the Night Huntress series too, but I was a little let down on how Up From the Grave ended Cat and Bone's story, but the Night Prince series has never disappointed me. I would recommend these amazing books with all my heart.

I am really disappointed with how this book turned out, I was expecting for the plot to at least make some sense. Plus, the ending plot twist felt tack on to continue to write this series to death. Not to mention that Leila getting kidnapped and tortured has become a bit of a tradition in this series.

This ugly trend is only compounded by her rape, Frost wrote it out as her wanting it but Leila was overtaken with bloodlust, and Maximus was NOT, so he raped he

While the other books in this series had tension and fights, this book... shit went dowh, hella dark, and it broke my godddamn heart

Look at that, I'm such a poet

Leila is a sweet caring proper young lady who is "never" reckless and really thinks about the consequences of all her actions

“Let me go, I need to do this,” I tried to say, but the words came out unintelligible. Unable to talk, I glared at him. Couldn’t he see that I had to cut my head off? Right now?”

Haha just kidding! Okay so yes

Vlad's still the bad@ss, Leila's still asserting herself...and dealing with her "new" self and they're still after the bad guy. Only this time, the "bad guy" is ahead of them.


One of my issues is that Vlad's "book" has definitely become its own series. I had to keep reminding myself of that and not feel like it was being dragged out!

The one good thing is that there is a lot of progression with Vlad. Granted he is always domineering and doesn't always listen but I felt there were a lot of breakth

PS. The cover...Ew!

Mikky (Nocturnal Predators Reviews)
Update After Rereading July 2020: It seems like I was very harsh on this series during my first read-through. I had a lasting impression that Vlad was a domineering overpowering a**, but after thinking it through and with the revelations throughout these books so far he's actually not that bad. I must have been projecting my problems on Vlad at the time because I've done a complete 180 on where I stand on these books. Also, my anger with Leila's family this time around is nonexistent.

This is such a fantastic series! Filled with action, mystery and loads of romance, you seriously can't go wrong. I love Vlad, I love his over drawn and explosive intensity. I don't even think intense is a word that does this man justice, but I can't think of another word that fits him so well. I knew he loved Leila, but here he proved it numerous times to the point where the depth of his feelings for her verged on wholly dangerous. But that made me love him even more!

Bound by Flames is a new personal top Fantasy/Paranormal Romance favorite! Jeaniene Frost and Tavia Gilbert are truly one of the best writer/narrator combinations in this romance sub-genre.

It wasn't perfect. Actually, it seems to me that author added some unnecessary passages so there would be a place for another novel. Yet, it was the first book I could read in a long time, and I am giving one extra star for this. But I still there is declining tendency in the series and the characters are getting basically destroyed from the first time they were introduced on the page. I'm starting to think it is not the best idea to give spin-offs to the fan favourites.

Jeaniene Frost is renowned the world over for her oh-my-god-is-it-hot-in-here scenes, but she can also rock the dark like nobody’s business, and readers were reminded of that fact with a vengeance in BOUND BY FLAMES. Graphic torture anyone? I’m talking flaying, limb amputation, silver poisoning, starvation, and pseudo rape.

This book lives up to every expectation I didn’t even know I had. Yeah, it’s that good. Vlad is back with a vengeance! This is the Vlad I fell in love with in the Night Huntress series. Ruthless, possessive, exasperating, pure dominant alpha male. Did I mention Vlad tended toward the brutal side of archaic? I think there

Just like the previous books in the Night Prince series, BOUND BY FLAMES is a 5 star read because Vlad never fails to rock my world!!

Vlad is just as savage as always when it comes to protecting the people he cares for and never more so than when Leila is in danger! While Vlad is awesome all on his own I've got to give Leila a huge shout out! She really came into her power and grew as a strong heroine in BOUND BY FLAMES.

I love Alpha men as much as the next girl, truly I do. There’s just something about a man so utterly in control that hits all the right spots for me. And let’s admit it, among fictional Alpha guys, Vlad Tepes is the ultimate thrill. I mean, think about it – Vlad the Impaler… please note that I am trying so hard to ignore the pun potential and applaud my maturity… that Vlad, Dracul, a romantic hero! What’s not to like?

Apparently, quite a lot.

Frost’s formula worked for me at the beginning. I expec

This was almost non stop action, barely giving me time to catch my breath and settle my nerves before the next onslaught of attacks. Leila couldn't have been tested more and ultimately Vlad. In a weird way, it forced Vlad to be mor
