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.
Not bad, but a little short
This book had lots of potential, but I feel like the storyline was rushed. Seemed more like a novella. Vlad is an interesting character that seemed a little shortchanged. I hope the Jeaniene will write another book that dives into the characters a bit more. I didn't bond with them like I did with Kat and Bones. Great love scenes though!
consistent and good, definitely buy again - but...
...it definitely leaves you hanging at the end but not tortuously.. just a smidge frustrated. And I was very pleased Frost didn't doesn't turn Vlad into a romantic mush ball, he can still make a reader flinch. The premise is definitely unique too, new characters that are growing on me for sure. I'm looking forward to the next one!!
Fabulous!! I can't wait for this story to play out!
