Once burned is the first book of the new series, Night Prince, by Jeaniene Frost, which happens to be a spin-off series of the Night Huntress Series.  This is a series that features vampires, ghouls, and ghosts; oh my!  The Night Huntress Series revolves around the lives of Bones (a British vampire bounty hunter for the undead) and Cat (a vampire half-breed who works for a secret branch of the FBI).  For the preview of the first book in this series, Halfway to the Grave, click here.  The Night Prince Series features a close friend of Bones and Cat…well at least a close friend of Cat, the famous Impaler Vlad Tepesh, just don’t call him Dracula.  Vlad finds himself summoned to the rescue of Leila, a human with very unique abilities after an encounter with a downed power line when she was twelve.  These abilities include a constant current of electricity running through her body that can prove very uncomfortable or deadly to anyone she touches, see a person’s greatest sin, future, or past with the touch of her right hand, and touch an object that contains someone’s essence and see the profound moments that caused it to be left there.  To read the preview of Once Burned, click here.
