Bound by the Vampire Queen (Vampire Queen #8)
His soul is hers for the asking, as the phenomenally arousing series continues.
Sworn to obedience, compelled by loyalty, and threatened with damnation for betrayal, Jacob is Lady Lyssa's vampire servant. But as Lyssa struggles with the powers that have come alive in her paternal Fae blood, she is challenged by two deadly enemies.
If you are....read this. It was...
Every time I think of Joey Hill, I think "Someday you will be old enough to read fairy tales again"
This book is proof that there is a PERFECT adult fairytale.
I love this book, it is magical. To me this book is PMR perfection.
My thoughts after just reading the first few chapters
What Wonderful start to A Sweet Majestical World.
And upon closing it...wow, this is Joey Hill at her best!
I Love This Book!
In this latest book, Jacob needs ...more
We’re back to the couple that started us off with the Vampire Queen series, Jacob and Lyssa and I was so happy their story was continuing on page. When we last left off, Lyssa had lost her vampire powers, but her Fae powers, which she has from her father’s side, were gaining strength. With that comes a summons from the Fae world and their Unseelie Queen, Rhoswen. Jacob has been turned, but even as a young vampire he still has the fierce need to serve and ...more
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 ...more
First and foremost, Joey Hill is hell on wheels when it comes to making you fall head over heels in love with a character. Jacob is abso one of my fave characters ever. She holds nothing back when it comes to describing his every thought and every calculation. That being said, if you've never read a Vampire Queen book, book 8 isn't where you should start. It's basically part 3 in the Jacob/Lyssa saga.
This book is over the top...and I'm not talking your usual ...more
Jacob and Lady Lyssa’s child is in danger. Jacob is always loyal to his Mistress. The Fae look down on Lyssa for being a vampire, but they have to respect her power. While everyone warns Jacob against mating outside of his species, Jacob believes in love, honesty, and above all, loyalty. These are beliefs that can’t be swayed by others. With Lyssa’s dormant Fae powers beginning to blossom, Jacob will do whatever he has to in order to protect those he loves from ha ...more
Lyssa's very powerful, yet mixed fae-vampire background is causing her trouble in both worlds; worlds which see no reason to 'meet' on any level. So Lyssa and Mate-Servant Jacob set out to make said meeting happen.
Suffice it to say, that through various encounters, visions, fights and life-alteri ...more
So this is a heart-rending story of ...more
I will admit that the Fae world we enter here is amazingly described, but not my favorite locale, much more sinister than its appearance suggests. And yes, way over the top. Rainbows, waterfalls, fairy insects, unicorns, gnomes (!). It's like high fantasy....then in comes the vampire. Lol. The plot does make a turn that deeply disappointed me at first, but I understand it, why it needed to happen. The future of the ...more
Jacob and Lady Lyssa have been by far my fav couple in this series and it was nice to see the author tie this series up with them.
I adore Jacob he is the definition of an amazing man if only all men actually thought behaved and thought like him =)
Sex scenes were beautifully written this book was beautifully written I'm sooo happy for mason and Jessica.
My only three problems the overk ...more
Passionate, raw, often painful to read. Hill takes D/s to a supernatural level that knows no bounds. The world she creates is haunting and addicting, rife with floggers, whips, paddles and fangs. It hurts so good, stabbing way down in the deep dark squishy part of the soul.
To be honest, the 1st 50% of this book really bored me & it took me longer to get through than any other Hill book I've read before, even books of hers I didn't like. I put this down twice after I started reading it and then when I went ba ...more

Bound By The Vampire Queen is the third installment revolving around the relationship of Vampire Queen, Lyssa and servant, Jacob. Which is why I want to warn you all there will be a certain loss of reading pleasure if you haven’t read the previous installments in this relationship! I don’t know how Joey W Hill does it but again she managed to concoct a story where new characters affected me to the core and to my surprise I found a Fae world that enthrall ...more
The last time we read about Jacob and Lady Lyssa, their relationship had gone through a cataclysmic change. She had reverted to her Fae blood and given all of her powers to Jacob when she converted him to a vampire, in order to save his life. They are doting parents to Kane, their gorgeous baby vampire boy.
This change in their status has made them a target for t ...more

Ms. Hill certainly went out on the sociopolitical limb in this one or at least that's my interpretation of it. The overall message is one of benevolence & acceptance-benevolence from our chosen leaders & encouraging them to promote acceptance amongst us. She does use different species to further the cause but generally speaking a positive message nonetheless. She never ceases to amaze me with her ability to construct characters that are complex, both light & dark, but in ...more
The author has created a complex interesting world. It has layers and depth. The characters that inhibit this world were cruel and cold and had little depth. How can a story of sex and crulty be cold? Hard to imagine but this one was. I did not like the threatened rape and the forced sex resulting from that threat. This was torture ...more
