Format: Paperback
Joey W Hill is a wonderful writer of erotic and D/s fiction. Her characters are strong and compelling. Her plots are always fresh and well thought out. She has several series and non series books available that span contemporary characters and plots as well as paranormal and urban fiction. Each book is unique and beautifully written.

If you are new to the Vampire Queen series, you will probably want to at least read Vampire Queen's Servant and Mark of the Vampire Queen before beginning this book since those two novels introduce Lyssa and Jacob and tell the story of their relationship and commitment to each other. It would also be helpful (though not as critical) to read Beloved Vampire, Vampire Mistress and Vampire Trinity since the main characters in those books have important roles in this book as well.

Having said all that, this book begins with Lyssa (who is half vampire and half fae)and Jacob (her mate and servant) being threatened on two sides. The Queen of the Unseelie Court wants Lyssa to come to her to prove how strong her fae powers are. Of course, Jacob will not be parted from her so he goes along and they are forced to complete three quests to determine whether they will be allowed the self determination of returning to the human/vampire world or staying in the fae world. A lot happens while they are in the fae world and the characters are wonderful. I am hoping we see more of that world in the future.

The second threat is that the Vampire Council is considering taking Kane, Lyssa and Jacobs' son from them in a political maneuver, as well as trying to force them apart.

The plot has wonderful and unexpected twists and turns and is as rich and beautifully written as one comes to expect from Joey's writing.

Format: Paperback
Bound by the Vampire Queen, captured my imagination like no book ever has. In my opinion, this story is Joey W Hill's best work. I downloaded my BBtVQ digital edition the morning of December 6 (release date).

From the first page to the last, I read nonstop with only a few hours sleep, until I finished the next evening. The whole time I told myself, "Just one more paragraph.", but one more paragraph was never enough because I needed to know what happened next and then next after that.

For me the most the most important part of the story plot was the personal challenges in Lady Lyssa's and Jacob's relationship. At first, Lady Lyssa is faced with her own personal demons and doubts about herself and the changing dynamics in her relationship with her servant, Jacob. Jacob, who'd always been an alpha character, had been turned into a fledgling vampire with all Lady Lyssa's former powers, as her Fae powers were developing. This sudden role reversal has left Jacob off kilter with his need to protect to protect his family with his new vampire predatory instincts and leaving Lady Lyssa struggling with uncertainty. Their relationship problems come to a head when Jacob steps in and demands the right to take on his lady's challenges for her. This dissolves Lady Lyssa's trust that her servant will obey her. She finally has to trap Jacob when she leaves to meet her challenge, afraid Jacobs of obsession with protecting her will lead to his death. The challenge takes her to a deadly desert that almost kills her. Jacob rushes to follow her after he's escaped her bonds with the help of an ally.

I think the desert rescue is the most dramatic part of the book. When Jacob finds his lady near death, his conflicting desires are forgotten.

I have been reading JWH a couple years now and I must say her writing style and the world she creates surrounding the Vampire Queen never cease to amaze me. Joey has Jacob's gift of story telling. With that said. I love this book.... the last 200 pages of it atleast. I am so sorry but I just could not lose myself in the Fae world, which is sad because she (Joey), really put a lot of effort into creating that world bringing it to "life" for her readers. I know vampires aren't real but I can consider them "real enough" since sex and vampires go hand in hand in today's society. They're "grounded" in our reality which makes it easier to "believe" in a secret vampire society. However, the Fae world is so full of fairy tales that I often find myself pulled out of story because i'm busy picturing Thumbelina in my head! Most of the story takes place there and I just couldn't get into the "romance
portion of the book during these chapters because frankly the Fae world was just too "candyland" for me. i will state however that there are poignant moments that occur in the Fae world which makes this part of the story forgivable and unforgettable so read it. I surprisingly didn't skip as many pages as I thought I would.

The most brilliant piece of writing hands takes place in the last chapters in the book in which our Lady Lyssa has her ipic showdown with the vampire council. I couldn't get enough of everything that slowly unfurled in those chapters! Lady Lyssa shines here as queen. She strongly reminded me of the Lyssa I feel in love with from Book 1 (Servant). Those chapters alone whet my appetite to learn what direction Joey plans to take the series.

I am a big fan of Joey's books and look forward to more Vampire Queen stories... and considering the mention of angels, I have no doubts that perhaps we will get another Daegan/ Gideon and Anywyn story soon? I hope so! But PLEASE can we get Brian's story next? I'm dying here!
