Publisher's Summary

The climactic third novel in New York Times best-selling author Jeaniene Frost's Night Prince series finds Vlad and his newly turned bride, Leila, at odds with each other - and vulnerable to the one vampire powerful enough to end the Dark Prince's reign...

Play with fire, pay the price

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 reach stretches across continents and whose strength equals his own. It isn't like Vlad to feel fear, but he does... for Leila, because his enemy knows she is Vlad's greatest weakness. As friend and foe alike align against him - and his overprotectiveness drives Leila away - Vlad's love for his new bride could be the very thing that dooms them both...

    "Brilliant - Jeaniene Frost Usual High Standard"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bound by Flames to be better than the print version?

    Brilliant and Different but not better - I own both and enjoy both at different times.


    What other book might you compare Bound by Flames to, and why?

    The Night Prince Series is as brilliant as Night Huntress series (Cat and Bones) I can give it no better praise.If I had to choose another author I would say the Jane Yellowrock Series which I also love beyond reason.


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    Her performance is wonderful with a different voice for each character. Whatever they pay her she is worth it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could do but I prefer to spread my pleasure.


    Any additional comments?

    The characters have been developed further. Leila made stupid decisions as always with drastic consequences. With a new master villain at the end. Loved it, Loved it

    What a brilliant book. I laughed and I cried. Jeaniene Frost is a genius, she has a fantastic imagination. I've read all of her books and they never anything less than entertaining.
    I can't wait for my next read 😊

    Absolutely love this author and can't wait for her next book. I've listened to all of them over the last few months and sad that I've now caught up! I love the narrator - the way she manages to do the voices so distinctly for each character is amazing and made it a pleasure to listen throughout the series.

    "Love it as all night hunter/ress books"

    I was worried that this next book would not be as good as the previous ones, but I shouldn't of. As usual the characters stick to their original personalities but grow through trouble and joy, I must say I loved the epilogue without giving it away it had me in stitches!!!
    And of course adore Tavia Gilbert reading!!! What a voice!!!
    Will be doing a re-listen of all the books again from start (night huntress series) to inbetween spin offs!!! Can't wait!!!

    I love the vlad series but this one did not feel like it matched up to the other two as it was quite gruesome in places but still wanting more from the vlad story line. Xxx

    "Amazing!"

    I'm a huge fan of Jeaniene Frost and have already read all her other books in the Night Huntress universe series. As with all the rest, it didn't fail to impress. This was an intense book full of perfectly placed action, shock and humour, in depth characters, and a gripping plot that lead to a perfect conclusion for the Night Prince series.

    This was the first book of Jeaniene's that I've listened to as an audio book and so I'd already decided long ago how I thought the characters would sound, but Tavia Gilbert amazed me. She pulled off all the characters fantastically. She has a nice flow to her voice and I believed every word she spoke. It was expressive, yet natural and full of genuine feeling.

    I highly recommend this book both for the incredible writing and the outstanding performance. Jeaniene Frost is a master in the supernatural fantasy genre.

    "Vlad is back and hotter than ever!"

    I love the Night Huntress world and Vlad is one of my favorite bad boy vamps. Bound by Flames was another great addition to the series.It was packed with action, adventure and plenty of scorching hot sex. As long as Jeaniene Frost keeps writing them, I'll keep listening.

    5 HOT stars!

    "Snoopy happy dance!"

    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 installment was originally intended to be the finale of the NIGHT PRINCE series; however after listening to book 3, I can understand why the author decided to axe that plan. A new super villain has risen, Vlad & Leila didn’t get their HEA, and there’s still plenty of story left to tell!

    I’ve had a jumbo crush on Tepesh ever since his character debuted as a secondary in Frost’s NIGHT HUNTRESS novels, and it’s steadily grown into an all out obsession with this spin-off series. He could easily be king of the bad guys if it weren’t for Mrs. Dracula which makes him the ultimate antihero. We got to see a more vulnerable side to Vlad in this installment while as Leila was all steel and resolve. The balance of power in their relationship has been markedly one-sided until now, so I loved the role reversal, and as expected, the author didn’t hold back on the ravishing either. *winks*

    Maximus drove me nutso in the best kind of way, and I was happy that Leila’s father finally saw reason after his prolonged silent treatment of his daughter. Marty was as primo as always, and my hankering for a Cat & Bones cameo was quenched, although it’s worth pointing out that their part was somewhat spoiler-y if you haven’t read UP FROM THE GRAVE yet. Mencheres also popped in to say hi which made my character driven self very jubilant. You’ll notice that I’m glossing over the plot, and that’s because it puts to bed the main story arc, so I’m not willing to risk accidentally spilling the beans, but it’s DA BOMB!

    This was my first time listening to a NIGHT PRINCE audiobook, however I was already acquainted with Tavia Gilbert as a narrator, so I had zero quibbles about her performance going in. Her renditions of both of the protagonists were on par with those that I had inside my head prior to her voice taking them over. I’m a sucker for accents, and her English (Bones), Romanian (Vlad), and New Orleans (Marie) vernacular left me tickled pink. I’m still trying to determine whether it was the narration or the writing that has me dubbing this as my favourite installment, either way, I loved it!

    BOUND BY FLAMES will make you break out into a Snoopy happy dance!

    Any additional comments?

    So... another good Frost book and after looking at Goodreads there will be more! This book is very much like all the books in this series... They love, fight, someone almost dies but the good guys come out on top... with a twist. So for those of you that are faint of heart this one gets a little dark. There is some stuff that is a little hard to read through so progress with that in mind. Reading other peoples reviews a few had a real problem with that. Me I still enjoyed the book a lot... and will definitely be listening to the next one.

    I am so in love with this series and so happy to see that there will be another book. Not happy that I'll have to wait for it. But it is definitely worth the wait. There is more action more drama in this book. More intrigue we get to learn more about Vlads past. There are new enemies new twists. And I loved every minute of it. Definitely worth the credit.

    "This series just gets worse and worse"

    This is the third book in the Night Prince series, an offshoot from the Night Huntress series that features Vlad and Leila. There were so many things wrong with this book. Additionally, although this story wraps up the Szilagyi storyline, it starts a whole new storyline. So, this is definitely not the last book in the series.

    I listened to this on audiobook and the narrator gives Leila a somewhat shrill voice (which is nothing compared to the voice she gives Leila's sister...whenever her sister Gretchen talks my ears actually hurt). This didn’t add to my enjoyment of this book. A lot of the Romanian males also sound very similar as well. This is the same narrator that did the Night Huntress novels, but in this book she just isn’t as good.

    Leila and her family are still in hiding from Vlad’s greatest enemy, Szilagyi. Until they can finally hunt Szilagyi down and destroy him none of them will be safe.

    Yep, the above is about the extent of this storyline, not much more to it than that. Oh wait, I should mention that Leila gets kidnapped...again. Is anyone surprised?

    Although I have always enjoyed Vlad as a character, I have really never liked Leila. She just seems so overly dramatic, whiny, incredibly ditsy and annoying (her electricity power is cool though).

    I was happy to see that Vlad and Leila do grow in their relationship some. However, I did feel like Vlad was a domineering jerk still and that Leila was way too accepting. Also Leila’s angst over her actions while she was held captive (yes she is kidnapped yet again because that is the only storyline that works for this series I guess) was absolutely ridiculous.

    I had huge issues with things like the one I mentioned in my update on Goodreads. For example potential rape is portrayed as being more devastating than actually being skinned alive. I agree rape is awful...even being threatened with rape is awful, but being skinned alive will kill you (okay maybe not if you are a vampire)...but as far as torture goes I feel like they are kind of on different scales. I also had problems with a scene involving Leila, Maximus, and duct tape; way too much time was spent on this scene, there is just too much detail, and I just didn't care all that much...seriously this was like a 40 minute scene in the audiobook.

    All in all I thought most of this book was more campy than interesting or engaging. Some of the scenes are just so over the top. The dialogue between the characters also came off as awkward, stilted, and just plain ridiculous at times.

    Overall this was an awful book. I understand I am in the minority here...but come on...nothing about this book was good. The storyline was similar to all the other storylines in this series, the characters were annoying, and the plot pretty much wasn’t there. To be fair I didn't really like the second book in this series either. I just read this one because it was supposed to wrap up the series...which it did not do. I definitely won't be reading any more books in this series. I would personally recommend skipping the whole Night Prince series. The Night Huntress series was great, the Night Prince series was a great idea that has been poorly executed.

    "Irritating"

    The heroine gets captured by doing something stupid, which doesn't help anyone, and has to be rescued...sounding like the other books? It was so much worse. The audio was bad, too, because she whined so much that the narrator's voice got irritating.
