Wonderful addition to the Night Prince series. As always Jeaniene Frost writes an excellent story and Tavia Gilbert brings that story to life for the listener. I am drawn to series because I like the continuation and development of the characters and the expansion of their worlds. Saying that, I would have liked to have had more interactions with other characters previously met in the Cat and Bones series. Still very enjoyable series. Without including a spoiler, I would have like a more definite ending but we know a third installment is coming. I will be one of the first in line for book three.
If you liked her series Night Hunter you will enjoy these books. I really like her character Vlad and am glad to see his story continue. There was a brief appearance of Cat and Bones. Would like to see more of them in this series. Can't wait for the next book.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Wow... JUst WOOW! Frost is such a great writer, so funny... This is the sequel to Once Burned..which I just loved... and this did not fall short at all.
At the end of Once Burned, Leila lost her powers and she thought Vald would not love her anymore. So I was really nervous about this book... So Vald said he would make Leila a vamp, but he didn't ask Leila to marry him, so she left him...
Just great right! I can't believe she left VALD! But she did, and Maximus from book 1 sets his sights on Leila... Maximus even lies to Vald to keep Leila to himself... OMG...when Vald finally catches up to Maximus and Leila, after thinking Leila was dead.... BOY O BOY!
Best part of this book is when Leila and his group of friends and sister, goes out for a girls night and BAMMMM all hell breaks loose when Leila find out who the traditor is... Vald was so pissed that he had to save Leila, but boy the smex scene after that! I am still blushing....
Best Sequel ever... I am so getting the Hunter books now... Which is the series before this one...
Narration was great.. Gilbert did an awesome job of Vald, Leila and Maximus...
I will like to listen both books again one after the other.
That Leila is getting stronger.
Her reading skills helps me to get inside the story every time.
I hope the saga will continue.
The Oracle Reviews
the humor adventure and the heat between the two main characters.
The story is a great read and the audio version is easy to follow.
I am a fan of Tavia Gilbert; she is the perfect voice for the Frost characters. She packs her performance with fantastic acting and distinguishable voices. Any story narrated by her is worth the purchase.
Audiobooks are relaxing and 'food for the soul'.
Yes! I love Vlad's storyline. He offers no pretense about who and what he is.
Vlad's dungeon banter
Vlad saving face in the dungeon when Leila/Frankie tricks his guards into letting her see him.
When Vlad voices his love for Leila.
I would have given the performance five stars; but, there were times in the story where Tavia overacted. For example, the love scences between Leila and Vlad. For the most part, it was an enjoyable listen.
I really thought I would not like this one because she can't make every book great... Well I am glad I was wrong. Now to what gave me pause: did she have to be vamp so fast? Humanity seems to be a major rarity in these books.
This one just didn't work quite as well as the first one. I like Vlad but Lila drives me a little nuts. Plus it ended on a cliff. Usually I don't mind that too much but this was a really abrupt way to end the book. I'm sure I'll give the next one a chance because usually I like her books more than this
I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and/or listening to mostly paranormal and fantasy.
I love Vlad. I always have. He pissed me off on many occasions. The book is slow in a few spots, but overall it's a fast read. It is a typical Frost story. No Bones which made me sad. We do have some Cat.
That both leading characters got to remain true to who they are. In all relationships there is give and take but one didn't give in just to make the other happy.
They call him Vlad the Impaler, not Vlad the Emasculated.
** Spoiler **The morning after the wedding and Leila woke and in her thoughts she called herself "Mrs. Dracula" and Vlad's reaction.
As with all the Night Huntress books and spin off's there are always several things that make me chuckle. This book was no different.
Happily ... not easily... but Happily Ever After
