Lily is a succubus. She owns a private salon (in other words a brothel). Charles, a former tattoo artist who was turned into a vampire, is back and he's collecting his art. Unfortunately for them, he inked Lily and
The vamps in this book are not of this ilk.
They are mean, they are hungry and some of them are batshit crazy. These vampires are monsters, just as it should be. Sadly, they do not make much of an appearance. There are a few dead bodies here and there but we don’t get to spend any time ...more
What do you get when a succubus, a chaos demon and a witch walk into a bar…I don’t know but I’m sure Galenorn is going to have us begging to find out.
Lily O’Connell is a succubus living in Seattle. She runs a successful sex salon that caters to the non-human kind. When one of her clients turns up dead in her house, it turns the tiger shifting community against her, so she turns to her standing in the Fae Court t ...more
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 surr ...more
I had great hopes with this book: a succubus called Lily who feeds from the chi of supernaturals who nowadays are a regular fixture on the world. A vampire called the Souljacker who is very dangerous (at this point I only have their word on it... loooooots of words at Lily's home) has come back to exact revenge and Lily bangs (quite literally sometimes harhar) with a chaos demon called Archer, a witch called Dani, a hu ...more
There are two things I should say first. One, as far as the first books in any series go, I tend to rate them a bit higher if for nothing else but the benefit of the doubt. Most of the time, the series turn out to be enjoyable and all the nitpicks and stuff that might bother a reader are filled in, fixed and/or explained. I believe the first books deserve that. Second thing is that sometimes my own personal preferences can mess up my reading experience. It is completely my fault, that. I usua ...more
Souljacker is an interesting take on how a succubus makes a living in a contemporary world, and I'd have enjoyed the story more if this hadn't been one of Galenorn's off-days. Yeahhhh…I really, really hate it when a writer doesn't make connections in their paragraphs. And Gale ...more
Not bad but completely unmemorable. Lily was a succubus who entertained men for a living. A vicious vampire called the souljacker killed one of her clients at her house. This set off a chain of events. Lily's rep was ruined and her business failed. The weres were after her because of the guy that died. The souljacker was after her and her friends, so she worked with a demon Archer to get some info.
I had a hard time connecting with the characters. I didn't care about any of them. Their ...more

My experience with this author:
This is the first installment in a new series by Yasmine Galenorn. I am familiar with this author & have read several of her previously released books. I'm a fan of two of her other series Bewitching Bedlam &a ...more
It’s been awhile since I dove into one of Yasmine Galenorns worlds so when I saw the cover and title I couldn’t help but be curious to see what she had up her sleeve and being a fan of tattoo’s and a resident of Western Washington I decided to give a go and really enjoyed the book. The world is similar to those of the author’s other works, but I really enjoyed the characters and getting to know each of them as they work to stop a psychotic vam ...more

So. . .This is the story of Lily O'Connell, proprietor of Lily Bound - A Private Salon. Lily is a succubus, which in this world is a type of Winter or Dark Fae. She's a sort of brothel madam, only she's the only employee.
When a client is murdered in her house, the police can't help because it was a vampire execution. But Lily's police friend tells her to seek help from a priva ...more
The characters felt two dimensional and flimsy. They were kind of like dolls; they had little personality and felt like they were just ...more
This was a great start for what i hope is the beginning of a new series. Yasmine is and always will be a great storyteller no matter what world she throws you in.
When an author can get you hooked in the chapter you know you're in for a good ride. The book was action packed but filled with enough information to have you vested in the main character and her close friends. While i loved the book and can't wait to see how this story grows i had a few issues. The main character is supposed to h ...more
Similar to a lot of other stuff by her, but it appears to not be at all connected to other series. Or at least not that I could detect in this book, other than the two tiny possibles, one being Silver Dragon scales.
I thought it interesting that the author choose the make vampires not likable at all, how after they are ...more
