The Mark of the Vampire Queen by Joey W. Hill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“Full servant. With his new title, Jacob must attend to Lady Lyssa’s every need, venturing into a world of passion darker than he’s ever known. As a vampire hunter he wasn’t prepared to embrace a world where humans are sexual commodities, but he has adapted. Now he finds the integrity of his soul challenged as he serves his Mistress’s needs as fully as he services her desires.He loves her, though other servants warn against giving her his soul. Everyone knows that Vampires have no regard for humans, so why would a Vampiress bother treating a mere sex toy with respect? But Jacob knows a human servant is far more than that. His Mistress needs a warrior, a friend and a lover. A man who will serve her in all ways, even if he has to betray the priceless treasure of her love”
More emotion that the 1st in the series (The Vampire Queen’s Servant) which I liked. Don’t get me wrong there are still some really steamy scenes – and I mean STEAMY, but they kind of make more sense than they did in the first book. Again, this book is not for the faint hearted, but I enjoyed it all the same.
There is more buy in to the characters in this book as well as the introduction of some new faces – which I’m hoping will reappear in later books. There is a MASSIVE twist towards the end of the book which definitely makes me want to pick up the next in the series; A Vampire’s Claim and see how everyone will cope with their new circumstances.
Great, fast moving, sexy (bordering on BDSM) and exciting read. If you like this genre and like some kick to your reading, I would definitely recommend this.
