Willow is a two-year old vampire with a history of narcolepsy that dates back to her childhood. She had hoped to get rid of it by getting turned, but immortality didn't help. Not only this, but she got stuck being one of hundreds of brides bonded to a Maistre vampire, Max. She managed to get away from him and start a life of her own, but it hasn't been easy. One thing her undead life has given her is some nifty abilities to please patrons at a fetish fantasy club she works at. Those who watch her regularly don't know many of her acts are real, rather than fake, but that works to keep her identity a secret. This is especially important because vampirism is illegal and anyone who is discovered to be a vamp receives an immediate execution. Willow has to work particularly hard to avoid that fate, especially because her narcolepsy tends to put her asleep at some rather inopportune moments.

Though things have gone fairly well since leaving her maistre vampire, problems of all kinds are starting to crop up. First, a man she holds some affection and interest for, Remi, wants to take their relationship to the next step. She likes him, but doesn't want to commit herself to anyone. His being human and not knowing what she is only makes the prospect more difficult. Second, someone attacks Willow at the club but gets away before she can find out who they are or why they tried to kill her. She also has to deal with a vampire hunter/executioner who suspects her true nature. Like a good hound dog, he refuses to give up, no matter how hard she tries to act human. If this isn't enough, her maistre vampire wants her to come back to him and he is jealous of Remi, but she doesn't want to give up her new life. Willow likes her independence and doesn't want to be part of a large vampire clan.

After Willow's Aunt is killed in a car accident, caused by narcolepsy, Willow is determined to find a cure for the genetic condition that she herself also suffers with. Taking part in various medical trials, seeing a number of doctors and swallowing a whole cocktail of pills don't help, so Willow decides to make the ultimate sacrifice and become a Vampire. Unfortunately it didn't work Willow still has the condition and with Vampirism now being illegal the world is a very dangerous place for her, she can at any moment fall asleep and that makes her extremely vulnerable.

Our protagonist, Willow, works in a fetish club performing for necrophiliacs which is a pretty good act for a vampire, so anyone with hang-ups for all things `kinky' should not be reading this book. I personally didn't find the sex scenes vulgar or crass, I thought they were as tastefully written as they could be considering their nature but any reader should be fore warned that some people could be offended by the adult content which is not in the `normal' range of sexual tendencies!!

It was a very refreshing change to have an imperfect vampire, we are so used to them being perfection personified, larger than life, almost `God' like, that to find one that has a major defect was quite nice. Narcolepsy is a medical condition where the sufferer falls asleep without warning at anytime of the day or night so as you can imagine this can become quite tiresome (pun intended lol) for a vampire especially if she is in the middle of feeding or fleeing from danger when it happens.

I loved Willow she was such a fun, strong willed female who struggled with her beliefs and her lifestyle but like the rest of us she just plodded on making the best she could out of her situation.

Many authors have attempted to follow in the footsteps of Stephanie Mayer after the phenomenal success of the Twilight series and the teenage book market has been utterly flooded with over romanticized books about vampires, werewolves and witches. Sleepy Willow's Bonded Soul is another in this list, though probably aimed at a slightly older audience than Mayer's, the book is the first in the series that follows Willow, a vampire stripper who suffers from narcolepsy.

For many of those who have grown out of the Twilight books this series may sound very appealing, it's darker more violent and adult than the more successful Mayer series, whilst it's premise boasts plenty of potential for comedy - all in all this ought to be a great, albeit silly, read.

If this was indeed the intention of author, Dicey Grenor, then he has failed miserably in his attempts; largely due to his own short-comings rather than those of his plot or characters. Grenor's writing style is incredibly amateur, the sentences stunted, poorly constructed and difficult to read. Being privy to the thoughts of Willow herself is more like attempting to converse with a sexually charged imbecilic; the emphasis seeming to be on how many swear words and sadistically sexual images can be crow-barred into every sentence.

The plot itself is reasonably engaging and the character holds huge potential, however reading Sleepy Willow's Bonded Soul is a little too much like reading pornographic literature, it lacks class, depth or even basic grammatical and editorial structure and it ultimately a painfully difficult and unfulfilling waste of 300 pages.
