It's probably fair to assume that anyone with a passing interest in vampire mythology will have come across stories in which a vampire had a servant. Someone who protected them during the day, looked after the vampire's interests and / or a general dogsbody. Indeed, in some books, they've even been termed 'Renfields' after the mad man who fell under Dracula's influence in Bram Stoker's novel.

On top of that, vampires are one of the staples of paranormal romances (PNRs).

And yet The Vampire Queen's Servant is still like no other book I've read. For a start, as can be ascertained by the title, the vampire in question is a woman and being the queen, Lady Lyssa is also the oldest and most powerful still alive.

Her previous servant; Thomas apparently died some months prior to start of the book, but not before he found and began to train a replacement; Jacob. I initially typed 'suitable replacement' but Jacob, at the start, even as observed by Lyssa is probably the most unsuitable person to be a servant. This is because in the normal, mortal world, he would be an alpha male and as such has understandable difficulty in giving his mistress the total submission that she demands.

And therein lies why this is a different book to most I've read; the BDSM element is the heaviest that I've encountered. Saying that though, for the most part it's not extreme. I say the most part but there are some scenes involving what I think is called 'sounding', whipping and rape. But whilst the scenes between Lyssa and Jacob start out as something purely sexual with Lyssa quickly establishing her dominance, they quickly begin to morph into something more when the pair also begin to bond to each other on an emotional level.

I really liked this story, which is about Lady Elyssa/Lyssa the ages old, never aging vampire queen and her introduction to Jacob, a former vampire hunter, to be her new servant, from her former servant, Thomas the monk.
It is the story of their individual pasts and present, with possibilities for the future, providing the sick Lady Lyssa has one but that will probably be covered in Joey W Hill's next book.
The depth of their developing relationship and dare the word reciprocated love be mentioned, as well as intense lust, has begun here. Love and lust that has differences between the species but which are all the more powerful for it.
It has a rich, formal dialogue with reminiscences of past long gone era's. It shows passion and some intensely erotic sexual scenes but these also include non consent and dubious consent, which may not suit all readers and who should be over 18 to access this novel.

I like the development,depth and richness of the main characters, it also links well to the associated characters, which I believe will be seen again in this series. There is also an antagonist,Carnal, who makes an appearance who I disliked intensely and expect to see return in the next novel.
I hovered between 4 and 5 star...ideally 4.5 but it has that little extra something for me that made me round up to 5 star.
One thing I wasn't happy with was the price. This was the most expensive book I've bought on kindle. Normally I would now go and purchase the rest of the series...but not at these prices. Maybe the next one for special occasions. I know writers have to make a living and I'm not denying them that, but sorry to say Ms Hill, at almost £9 /$14, then it precludes many readers on tight budgets from buying and enjoying your work and worse encourages illegal lending.
I've heard the arguements of real book versus electronic and know paper books cost more to produce, this e-book is expensive.

I'm not sure why any of the male leads want to become a vampire slave, I don't find any of the women in any of the boks in this series have charisma.

there are some hot scenes in the book, but when the two people aren't in love or moving towards being in love it leaves me a bit cold.... but I'm an old romantic :)
