Library JournalAt night she is Pandora, mistress of the Midnight Mystery Lounge at the Arcana Royale casino in Las Vegas, where she has been captivating audiences with her hypnotic voice and sultry moves for the past 50 years. But her otherworldly audience is unaware that behind her smiles, Jeannie Williams is doomed to perform the same song and dance routine night after night for another 100 years, and it is more than she can bear. A powerful vampire, Malcolm Reynolds arrives at the casino to unravel a sticky situation involving one of his family members, and when Jeannie first catches his gaze during one of her shows, she instantly senses that he is capable of taking her away from her life of servitude. True to his nature, Malcolm is willing to rescue Jeannie when he hears of her plight. But then he discovers her secrets, and if there is a choice between Jeannie and his family, will he make the right one?
Verdict Although the idea is a solid and unique one, and several surprises do entertain, this first book in the “Soulgirls” series suffers from limited scenery, insipid characters, and tedious dialog. The author’s attempt at mixing Old World characteristics with the shine of the modern world falls short. Not recommended.—Natasha Grant, New York
