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.

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.

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.<br/>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.<br/>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.
