"ROAMING THE RUSSIAN STEPPES A THOUSAND YEARS AGO, A BRUTAL WARRIOR STRUCK A TERRIFYING DEAL. IN EXCHANGE FOR THE ABILITY TO TRANSFORM INTO A HEARTLESS PREDATOR, HE PROMISED HIS SOUL- AND THE SOULS OF HIS DESCENDANTS- TO THE DEVIL."

Thus began this truly wonderfully creative quadrilogy by Christina Dodd, culminating in this final Book 4 that, if anything, is more spell-binding than the other three, all of which I could not 'tear' myself from very easily.

This book is different from the other three because in it we are not searching for the fourth image of the holy icon (a single painting divided into four images of the Madonna). This book focuses on the finding of the fourth son (as stated in the prophecy): the four sons of Konstantine and Zorana will find their true love, who will locate one of the images. When they are all put together the evil Varanskis will be defeated.

Firebird, the 'daugher' unknowingly falls in love with a cop name of Doug Black, who is actually the 4th son unbeknownst to him or to Firebird; and he already has the 4th image, but is not aware of its value. The story goes on via many VERY intriguing routes, but WHAT A STORY!!!!!

It would be prudent to read the first 3 books leading to this ending; believe me it will not be a chore, and many probably have already done this. This is one of the BEST series I have ever read in my MANY years of reading.

While I've enjoyed the rest of the series, this book was a chore for me to get through. Into the Flame is the finale of the series. I was looking forward to the bantering dialogue and simmering attraction between the two protaganists. Instead, the story was flat, the "attraction" was b.o.r.i.n.g. I found myself skimming and having to go back and re-read. Overall, a disappointment.

This book picks up where book 3 left off - with Firebird and her startling revelation.
Unlike other brothers, I like Doug. I feel that he is more human and emotional than others. Maybe what happened to him as a baby made him that way.
A great conclusion to the series.

It starts off all macho but of course the guy becomes love struck. This is the first of four in a set. Get all four to read on right after the other. Three brothers (shift changers) and a sister who isnt. Great set. im glad i got all four at once. Jany

What a disappointment!

Christina Dodd was so busy wrapping up the overarching story, she forgot about the love story. We spent as much time with other characters as we did with Firebird and Douglas. It was nice to see the other characters but it felt like the main couple got short shrift.

Also in a departure from the other books, this one wasn't particularly steamy with only one love scene, late in the book. The ending was quite spectacular, in terms of the mythology and resolving the story of the icons, but even there, the love story resolved with more of a sputter.
