Into the Flame by Christina Dodd

Into the Flame: Darkness ChosenTitle: Into the Flame
Author: Christina Dodd
Series: Darkness Chosen (book #4)
Previous in series: Into the Shadow
My rating: 4 stars

Synopsis: Destined to bear only sons, the Wilder family has one daughter, Firebird. Upon learning that she is a changeling, this miracle child sets out to find the Wilder’s long lost brother in order to break the pact their ancestor forged with the Devil. Fortunately, Firebird is well aware of the fourth son’s identity, he is Doug Wilder, the estranged father of her son. Can Firebird overcome her fears in order to reunite the members of her family?

Review: A satisfying and action-packed conclusion to the series. Once again, Dodd’s writing flows smoothly and it is easy to become immersed in the world she has created. There are one or two plot threads that remain unresolved but this does not detract from the overall storyline or impact of the series.

In terms of the romance, Firebird and Doug are a sweet couple but they lack the emotion, chemistry and intensity of the pairs in the previous books. There is very little character development and certain aspects of their relationship just don’t ring true.

Although I am new to the paranormal romance genre, this is my absolute favorite series so far. I highly recommend it for lovers of the paranormal and of romance.
