The accident scarred Leila but also allows her touch to kill as she controls electricity and can do psychometric readings.  She works the carnival circuit until four vamps kidnap Leila because they need her uncanny ability to find Vlad Tepesh the firestarter vampire.  Their plan is to kill him.

 

Leila applies her psychometric skills but finds herself telepathically communicating with an irate Vlad.  He kills her abductors, but wonders who was behind the plot.  Vlad also recognizes the mortal’s uniqueness so he refuses to free her as he feels he can use her in his search.  Leila, who has missed touching, finds he survives her touch so puts up little an argument.

 

This is the first Night Prince urban fantasy starring a fascinating Cat & Bones secondary character with quite a history.  Leila brings the electrical charge to this fast-paced action thriller as she and the first person she can touch without electrocuting them since the accident team up to try to find the villain behind the assault on the vampire who one must never call Dracula.  Jeaniene Frost has stated an offshoot series with a winner.
