As a young student living on his own, Tristan finds juggling work, school and his personal life difficult to manage. That is until he meets Lilith- a sultry, confident, bombshell who finds herself immediately taken with him.
Lilith is twice his age.
Now Tristan must choose whether her doting affections will be enough to gain his trust, or if he should escape her grasp before his body makes the decision for him...
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on November 1, 2015
Tristan awakes to find himself in the presence of a seductive woman named Lilith who offers all that he desires, both spoken and unspoken in so many ways. But with the love, caring, and passions that she offers comes questions that he does not have the answers for. How did he get where he is, and why doesn’t he want to leave? Lilith’s smile and hold over his heart leaves nothing to be desired save for him to give into what she asks of him. To be with her… always.
For me the thing about this work is that from the moment Lilith appears, it’s obvious to me that she is a Succubus. Her hold over Tristan, the way she knows all of his wants, needs and desires and how she makes them come true point at her being a Succubus. What I particularly like about Lilith is that she isn’t stereotypical in her actions, she seems to love and cherish Tristan deeply, and more importantly, doesn’t seem to want to hurt him, but give all that he wishes for.
The little descriptions of Lilith, her home, her surroundings, seem to suggest that Tristan has been taken from his world to hers, or perhaps a sort of limbo. The little remarks about the balance of red and black drew a smile from me and in a way reflect upon Lilith’s character. She has red hot passions for Tristan and as well she has the touch of firm Domme control reflected in the black. But she isn’t “evil” nor is she wanting to cause him to suffer or feel pain. Lilith is dominant, calling Tristan at various times, pet, and more deliciously, little love, that I feel shows the need she has for him.
The work is a lovely mix of discovery and erotica that works very well together and sets up quite a number of questions for the series going forwards. While it is never said explicitly that Lilith is a Succubus, there is a well constructed mystery around her that works to tie the moments of passion together very well. It’s wonderful to see the pair simply being together, Tristan falling for Lilith as the story unfolds. He’s quite firmly under her spell, but there is an undercurrent of confusion at times that leads towards the erotica in a wonderful way. When the erotic moments come, they are well told, speaking of a loving, positive D/s relationship that I adored.
I would have liked for there to be a few more concrete hints towards who Lilith really is, her purpose, and why it was that she chose Tristan in the first place. But the way things unfold that part of the story isn’t told and really it need not be as the mystery in the moment for Tristan is well enough to carry the story on its own.
Well written, lovely heat and really fascinating characters. There wasn’t anything that took me out of the story from beginning to end and I enjoyed Lilith not being stereotypical. Tristan was a lovely submissive, but also had a certain amount of strength within him that was slowly drawn out over time. I would have loved the work to be longer, at least a dozen or so pages, and tell more about the why’s of the moment. Perhaps a little hint of what surrounds Lilith and Tristan or, more interestingly, when Tristan falls from exhaustion into sleep, what does Lilith do? Does the world change? Does she?
Many, many questions, but then the better stories always leave you wondering…
Four and a half out of five pitchforks.
A very strong opening to the series in which many questions come to mind, but the answers are not given. There is an obvious answer, who or rather what Lilith is, but that answer is left for the second work to tell…
