Book Review: Souljacker by Yasmine Galenorn

A new series by one of my favorite authors will thrill you even as it draws you in fort more.

My rating for Souljacker: 4.5 Stars

Lily O’Connell is a succubus who owns Lily Bound, a salon that caters to the sex fantasies of the paranormal world. It’s a perfect way for her to feed on the Chi she needs to survive and be independent as well. It was working just fine until a client gets murdered in her salon and then all bets are off. Finding out that a vampire did the murder, well that leaves her cold but it was the news that the Souljacker, a gifted tattoo artist turned vampire, has escaped from the institution for the criminally deranged and he is coming to get every one of his clients, that scares her to the bone. With one of his tattoos on her body and no where to turn, Lily finds herself in the fight of her life as she tries to keep her friends safe and stay alive. With a chaos demon PI by her side, Lily will find her life as she knew it is changing.

I adore this author’s work and if you ever read one of her books, you know she is a gifted storyteller who keeps the reader glued to the pages till the very end. SOULJACKER is the first book in her new series about a succubus and it has familiar aspects within the story. Many different paranormal creatures (Fae, vampires, weres, etc), extensive world building, captivating characters and more all dot within this first book. I really enjoyed seeing a different paranormal creature take the main stage and found Lily to be a breath of fresh air in a sense that a succubus isn’t as prolific as vampires, weres, fae in stories. Lily is intriguing and the reader gets glimpses of her long past within the pages and I highly enjoyed finding out more about her. The story starts off a bit slow but by chapter two, the action picks up steam and you are off and running with Lily. The story flows smoothly and keeps your attention till the very end.

Meet Lily O’Connell. She owns Lily Bound, a elite sex salon that caters to weres and fae. Lily is a succubus who needs the life force-or Chi- to survive or else bad things happen when she is starving. She has lived a somewhat quiet life for awhile after roaming the world for centuries and put down roots in the Blood Night District of Seattle. I enjoyed Lily a lot. She is an independent woman who enjoys sex, feels she is giving service to those who need it and has a great tight nit group of friends. But murder can play havoc on a business and your life as Lily finds out. She now has angry widow who is a were who threatens her business and her life, a deranged vampire hunting her and her friends and now a love interest in a chaos demon. Life for Lily is about to get a tad bit more dangerous than the staid life she lived under the radar. I really liked Lily’s dynamic with the other characters. You can get a sense of her inner circle and Archer, the Chaos demon fits in nicely. All the characters are intriguing and well written. They are quite enjoyable, even the bad guys. I really am looking forward to seeing more about them in future books. There are a few plot twists that will keep you guessing and I am eager to see where this authors goes with it.

SOULJACKER is a wild ride from start to finish and is a perfect introduction to this author’s work if you never tried her before. If you enjoy a mystery set in a supernatural world that will keep you glued to the pages, then you will enjoy SOULJACKER. I look forward to seeing where this author goes next in the series. I just hope we won’t have to wait forever for book two.
