Well, considering I finished this book in less than 24 hours after I started it, that should say something... but, if it doesn't, let me just speak plainly... IT. IS. AWESOME.
I am a Jeaniene Frost fan, and have been ever since I picked up the first book in her Night Huntress series. This book does not center around Cat or Bones, but rather Vlad, and a woman he meets named Leila. I loved Vlad from the moment he made an appearance in the NH series, and he did not disappoint here. Being able to see more into him, and who he is made me fall in love with him even more.
Leila is a new comer, a woman who suffered a horrible accident as a teen that left her scarred both physically and emotionally. But beyond her scars, she is also left with some new abilities. She essentially turned into a human taser, and she can see peoples' past, present, and sometimes future when she touches them with her right hand.
The sparks between Leila and Vlad almost burn the pages in your hands. Their chemistry is amazing. Vlad and Leila set out to find the man behind threats on Vlad, and while they're hunting, things most definitely heat up.
This book is book one in a new series, which will remain centered around Vlad and Leila. The way Ms. Frost ends this book leaves me wanting more, and I cannot wait till Spring of 2013, when their next book comes out! Be sure to pick this book up, because it is a MUST READ!
Very good! If I die before I get to read next in series, someone must sit by my ashes and read it to me!!! Lots and lots of action!!!
Yes, I agree totally with the 'read it at my grave comment', lol. Loved the book, very action oriented, enthralling story with crystal clear characters! Have always been a fan of Vlad (history papers and all), and was hesitant to read this (although I very much wanted to), as I wasn't sure how well he could be portrayed. Very well done Jeaniene Frost! Bravo! I can't even bring myself to share it yet...couldn't put it down! I am already craving the next. A must read.
Am a fan of The Night Huntress stories, and love the way Vlad is portrayed in the series, exactly as one would imagine him, arrogant, fearless, dangerous, honorable, loyal. Yet this book did just that, such in depth characters, such sparks! Read this one, even if you haven't read her others! Once again a must read.
I read this book in one sitting. Guess that says a lot right there. I have loved...and lusted after Vlad since he was introduced in the Night Huntress series. i thought his repartee with Cat was interesting until he met Leila. Talk about hot! Pun intended. Excellent read and can't wait for the next book. 4.5 stars
LOVE, LOVE, LOVED IT!!!
Vlad was awesome.... Leila was fabulous.... Loved when Cat and Bones made a cameo appearance.
I hope this is a long series - I'll be there for all of it!
