Firebird Wilder is a rarity, a female born into a family where only males have been born for many, many years. She’s also different in the fact that she has no paranormal ability where her brothers are loaded with it, due to the fact an ancestor made a deal with the devil promising his soul, and the souls of his descendents, to Lucifer.

Cop Douglas Black is an orphan dealing with an ability that he keeps hidden. He meets Firebird while she is in college. There is an instant attraction and she’s about to tell him they’re going to become parents when she discovers a secret that makes her leave him before imparting her secret. Doug is devastated by her loss. In pain, he does something that helps fulfill a prophecy, and learns more about himself, and Firebird.

Can the two lovers get past his betrayal and overcome a battle against their sworn enemies and live to reunite? Or will they go up in flames?

Into the Flame is the fourth book in Ms. Dodd’s Darkness Chosen series. Like the others in the series, this one centers around the Wilder family and their battle to break an ancient curse. I have to tell you that I love this series and the set-up for it. The Wilder family is a great deal of fun to read, and I enjoy their closeness and the way they interact with each other.

Firebird is her own person, strong and able to stand on her own. I loved the way she and Doug fit together, and the way they take their place in the family history. Doug’s remorse over his actions only endeared him to me, since I understood the feelings he had over Firebird’s flight away from him. When the two come back together it is explosive.

The final battle reads like the war it is, and provided great closure at the end. If you haven’t read this series, start at the first. I’ve enjoyed them all, and Into the Flame was a great addition to the Wilder family saga
