16173427Second to last book of Jeanine Frost’s Night Prince series, we are introduced again to Vlad and Leila as they are trying to track down the one vampire Vlad most wants to see dead: Strygovsky.

But before they can do that, he burns down Vlad’s home with Leila inside, but manages to snatch her up out of the inferno of napalm he rains down on her home.  And anyone who as been following this series knows that this vampire is a sic S.O.B and he just proves it above and beyond when he orders Leila’s rape and torture, has it videotaped, and sent to Vlad as a souvenir.

And not just to Vlad either.  Many of the big bad undead were sent copies as well as part of the power play Strygovsky was planning.

Only now Styggy isn’t working alone.  Rather now he has a necromancer who is blood related to Vlad cast a spell on Leila that has enscorcelled her to make attempts on her own life.  Thankfully Vlad and Leila are able to take care of Styggy in the end, but the necromancer is going to take a little more doing.

Nothing stood out for me here in Bound by Flames.  It was a good story, well paced, Cat and Bones make a brief appearance with their daughter so it was nice seeing them again, but overall it was typical of Jeanine Frost’s work.
