Lily O'Connell, a succubus, has put her unique talents to work. She owns Lily Bound, an elite sex salon in the Blood Night District of Seattle. When a client turns up dead in her club, and she hears the news that the Souljacker--an old tattoo-artist friend-turned-vampire, who was institutionalized years before--has escaped to reclaim his "artwork," Lily knows she's next on his list. With one of his tattoos on her thigh and nowhere else to turn, Lily hires Archer Desmond, a chaos demon and PI, to track the vampire down before he tracks her. But she didn't expect to fall for Archer-and they say a succubus who falls in love will destroy the heart of the one she seeks to claim...
SOULJACKER is a fun and at times dark paranormal romance novel. Obviously since the main character is a succubus, this book has a lot of sex since Lily needs it to survive. While there is a burgeoning romance that is pretty steamy I really enjoyed the thriller aspect of the story with the hunt for an extra creepy vampire serial killer who is after basically all of the main characters you get to know and grow somewhat attached to. The world building surrounding this plot is pretty neat and the politics/realities of magical beings and humans is realistic (or as realistic as it can be...). I really enjoyed the fae world and would love to read more about this aspect in future books.
At first I was confused as to what was going on with the story as they kept referring to a character and past events linked to the serial killings so much that I kept checking if I was on the first book in the series or not. Eventually the full flashback of just what was going on were revealed and everything made sense. While reading SOULJACKER I was a bit annoyed at this but in the end I kind of appreciated how the reveals and story unfolded. It was a unique way of unraveling information.
SOULJACKER has plenty of tense action and thrilling moments that will keep you wanting to turn the page faster to see what happens next. I enjoyed learning more about Lily and the major change in her life that she goes through in SOULJACKER has me curious enought to want to see what happens in the next book in this series.Series Titles:
