Description

She's a mortal cursed with dark power....

After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: a terrifying ability to channel electricity and to see a person's darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude ... until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world's most infamous vampire.

He's the Prince of Night....

Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all - but whatever you do, don't call him Dracula. Vlad's ability to control fire makes him one of the most feared vampires in existence, but his enemies have found a new weapon against him: a beautiful mortal with powers to match his own. When Vlad and Leila meet, passion ignites, threatening to consume them. It will take everything they have to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flames.

A HOT FROST LISTEN!

So glad Frost broke out Vlad's story from the Night Huntress series! Although Vlad irritates me at times with his arrogance...his friendship and loyalty with Cat in the past made him another favorite. And Once Burned only makes him better!

Vlad meets his match in Leila who, although human, has powers of her own as well. Between the two of them...well...lets just say there are sparks right from the beginning, figuratively and literally. :) Similar to Cat and Bones, Vlad and Leila are just a stubborn as they attempt a relationship, all the while tracking down someone from Vlad's past that was presumed dead centuries ago. This book is filled with many tense moments that are both good ;) and bad..once again sucking you in!

As for Tavia...she never disappoints and I am so glad that they kept her as the narrator for all of the Frost books! Without a doubt she is only getting better! She does such a good job with every character...it is hard to believe it is one person! And she does so much more than just reading...the way she acts out what she is reading really makes it come alive!

Once Burned is another "Hot Frost" listen :) worth the credit!! Bring on the next one!!

So bad it's good

Would you try another book from Jeaniene Frost and/or Tavia Gilbert?

I've read her night huntress series which I liked MUCH more

Would you ever listen to anything by Jeaniene Frost again?

Yes

Did Tavia Gilbert do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I have to applaud Tavia for attempting all the different accents... irish, british, romanian, american.... but they're pretty hilariously cheesy.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Laughter. Tavia's voice overs were hilarious.

Any additional comments?

I kept laughing in disbelief... especially that I was still listening hours in. I think this is the worst book I have ever read... although I have to say I was entertained.

This is a HOT One!

Read from June 26 to 27, 2012

I feel like I waited for this book for years! I love Vlad and was thrilled he was getting his own story. Jeaniene Frost has done it again! I was worried that no woman would be good enough for Vlad but Leila is perfect for the old guy. She has just the right amount of angst so she won't be a pushover and a touch of innocence and vulnerability that will make her likeable.

This book has the same successful recipe that all of Ms. Frost's books have that makes it a lovely blend of romance and urban fantasy, seasoned with enough steamy scenes and gory battles to keep me mesmerized.

A lot of people are complaining about the end but I liked the conclusion. My only issue is that the book is way to short and that the wait will be excruciating.

Tavia Gilbert performs flawlessly and keeps the accents of so many characters consistent and believable. She has such emotion while she reads I bet the sound crew was blushing during some scenes.

OH my, Vlad was worth the wait!

I have been waiting for this book to come out. I have loved all the Cat and Bones books as well as the other characters stories so I knew Vlad's story would be good. Frost did not disappoint. I think this series could become as good as Cat and Bones series. I definitely will look forward to seeing how Vlad's romance will progress. He needs a good woman and I think these two will create a good series.

Tavia Gilbert is one of my favorite narrators and I was so glad to see her continue with this new series. It is nice to keep the same narrator since you are used to the voices she has created for the characters.

HOT, EXCITING and Left you wanting more, more, more. The only bad part is the wait for the next book. Totally credit worthy. I do recommend you start at the beginning of the Cat and Bones Series so you can get to know all the characters, including Vlad.

WOWEE - IT TICKS ALL THE BOXES

Love Jeaniene Frost's books - they're an automatic download for me. No doubt this is the start of another fantastic series. I loved Vlad and can't wait for the storyline to develop more. I couldn't stop listening to this it was just so yummy - it had everything you'd expect from JF's books.

What a great combination - brilliant writing and awesome narration - the perfect union.


Well worth the credit.

Not Your Adverage Dracula Story!!

Any additional comments?

I love Vlad. I have been waiting for his story since we met him in the Night Huntress novels. He's a more sophisticated, polished version of Bones. Don't tell Bones I said this, but Vlad is more my type! :)

Frost keeps up her usual fast, fun ride with Once Burned. The sex is hot, the banter is witty, and the fights are nail biters. What more could you pack into an 8 hour show/book?

Tavia is completely awesome as the narrator (as usual) and brings so much "personality" to the narration. Loved it!

EXCITING NEW SERIES

This first book in Jeaniene Frost's new series is excellent! Tavia Gilbert does her normal fabulous job with Vlad's accent. Lots of action and killing and fire from Vlad. Leila is a very interesting character and has some very cool powers of her own even though she is just human. Of course nobody can write a love scene like Jeaneine and woooo does she do Vlad proud with this one. LOL I hope we don't have to wait a full year for the next book because that's just too long to wait for such a great story. You have to listen to this if you are a Jeaniene Frost Night Huntress fan!! I'll be listening to it again very soon.

Loved it!

I loved this light paranormal romance. There was plenty of action and character development to keep me interested throughout. A little steam but nothing graphic or detailed.

What took me so long!!!!

I have no idea what took me so long to read this book. I love Jeaniene Frost Night Huntress Series and the Night Huntress World books. So why did I wait a whole year to read this book will hunt me for awhile. Vlad, Vlad, Vlad, what can you say about Dracula (never call him that or think it around him if you value your life). Vlad is passionate, irrational, possessive and funny at times, although his mood changes with the wind. But it’s something about him that makes crazy and thinks she can crack his outer shell, only to realize there is an inner one too. Leila is strong, independent and loyal to a fault. She is just the type of woman to make a guy like Vlad fall to his knees, if only he would let her. To say that I enjoyed this book is an understatement. I would and have recommended this book to several friends.

Tavia Gilbert is dynamic as a narrator. She is my favorite narrator. Someone comment about the accent she using for Bones but I absolutely love it. Even when I read some of Jeaniene Frost books, I still imagine Tavia voice associated with the characters.

WHY ARE YOU STILL READING THIS, GO GET THIS BOOK AND ENJOY!!!!!!

Wieder ein Vampirstory

Die Storyline ist interessant, das Buch ist (ungewöhnlich für dieses Genre) tatsächlich recherchiert was die geschichtliche Personen und Orte angeht.

Die Protagonistin ist wie in vielen ähnlichen Büchern am Anfang ein armes Rehlein und zum Schluss Superwoman :(
Wlad ist dominierenend, protektiv und gewalttätig. (hier auch keine große Überraschung)
Die erotische Szenen wirken zu blumig und überschwänglich (was die Erotik deutlich mildert)

Die Vorleserin liest für mein Geschmack zu dominant und Vlads Rolle liest sie mit einer auf Dauer nervendem Akzent.

Trotz all dem ist das Buch recht spannend und man möchte doch wissen wie es weiter geht.

"I’m the only authentic Vlad. Everyone else is...

... merely an envious imitation!"

Seit Leila einen Unfall mit einer Stromleitung im Alter von 13 Jahren hatte, kann sie mit ihrer rechten Hand bei Berührung alles über eine Person herausfinden. Deshalb wird sie von Vampiren entführt, die Leilas Begabung dafür nützen wollen, um herauszubringen, wo Vlad sich in Zukunft aufhalten wird, um ihn dann umzubringen. Leila erscheint es aber sicherer, sich auf Vlads Seite zu schlagen und so nimmt er sie mit nach Rumänien, um dort – auch mit Leilas Hilfe – heraus zu finden, wer seinen Tod will.

Leila hält Vlad erst mal für einen ziemlichen Angeber, der seinen Vampir-Status mit dem Namen „Vlad“ schon recht strapaziert. Außerdem nervt es sie unglaublich, dass er ihre Gedanken lesen kann. Das jedoch macht es für den Hörer lustig, denn meistens fällt ihr erst nach dem Gedanken ein, dass Vlad ihn besser nicht hätte hören sollen.

Das Buch ist Teil einer neuen Serie (das zweite Buch soll im Frühjahr 2013 kommen), und ja, das Ende ist offen. Ich hatte aber nicht das Gefühl, dass mitten im Buch das Ende kommt. Es gibt lose Enden wie beim ersten Cat & Bones Buch, so ist das halt bei Serien. Es gibt einen sehr, sehr kurzen Auftritt von Cat, Bones, Mencheres und Kira, sonst dreht sich alles um Vlad. Sein allgemeines Verhalten (sein Beiname „Der Pfähler“ hat bis heute nichts von seiner Berechtigung verloren) ist für Leila schwer nachvollziehbar, aber ehrlich, wer kann sich Vlad schon als gütigen und wohlwollenden Meister einer Vampirsippe vorstellen, der bei Verfehlungen bestenfalls den Kopf schüttelt und sagt, dass sowas nicht mehr vorkommen sollte. Und das ist auch mein Kritikpunkt: es ist nicht nachvollziehbar, warum sich Leila zu Vlad hingezogen fühlen sollte (mal abgesehen davon, dass er der einzige ist, den sie länger berühren kann, ohne ihn mit Stromschlägen umzubringen). Sie treffen sich und beide sind sofort von einander angezogen. Und Vlad war hier im wesentlichen arrogant und überheblich und nicht so geistreich, witzig, mitfühlend und trotzdem gefährlich wie in den Cat & Bones Büchern oder auch in Mencheres Geschichte. Vielleicht liegt das auch daran, dass die Geschichte aus der Sicht von Leila erzählt wird.

Trotzdem habe ich mich oft amüsiert. Es gibt immer wieder Szenen, bei denen ich einfach laut lachen musste wie Leilas Beschreibung von Bones “he was handsome in a too pretty way that made me think with less muscles, a wig and some make-up he would look great in a dress” oder Vlads Aussage „I do my torturing in the dungeon like any other respectable castle owner”, der im übrigen Foltern zur Informationsgewinnung als “due diligence” bezeichnet.

Alle Jeaniene Frost Bücher werden von Tavia Gilbert gelesen, man weiß also, was man bekommt. Alles in allem ein netter Auftakt zu einer neuen Serie, auch wenn noch nicht allzuviel passiert. In der Hoffnung, dass Band zwei nahtlos anschließt und die offenen Fragen einen Abschluss finden, gebe ich Buch und Lesung 4 Sterne.
