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.

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!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Once Burned to be better than the print version?
I would as the performance is excellent and enhances the story and strengthens the characters.
Any additional comments?
As I have read the Huntress series and Vlad was a strong support character in those books - this book develops his story line. The book is free standing and is not affected if you have not read the Huntress series. LOVED this book will read it again without a doubt.

What made the experience of listening to Once Burned the most enjoyable?
I have been a fan of Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress World books for years and Once Burned did not disappoint.
It is only recently that I have begun to listen to audiobooks, as I do not have the time to read books as much as I used to or want to.
Not only does the story draw you into the world Jeaniene has created, but Tavia Gilbert does an excellent job as a narrator with her natural flow, pleasant voice, her ability to express specific feelings in a single sentence as well as using different voices and accents for each character. There are a few accents/voices I think could use a little improving, but overall I love Tavia Gilbert's work.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Definitely, I have read the book in one sitting and have listened to the audiobook quite a few times so far.

Once burned a night prince novel is a thrilling edge of your sit suspense from beginning to end. Vlad and Leila's story is by far my favourite of the Night huntress series, it has none stop actions, sexy hot undead albeit arrogant hero and a scarred heroine literally and metaphorically who discharged electric current in her right hand and you have a recipe for a great book, thrown in one of the best narrator in audible books Tavia Gilber and you have an amazing story. Tavia you are magnificent thank you.
Awesome start. Live Vlad. Racial is such an awesome narrator. Can't wait to read the rest of this series. Well done Jeaniene Frost. Never disappoint.
