After two weeks of hot days and steamy nights spent with Lilith, his mysterious new love, Tristan begins to wonder what really makes her tick. His curiosities begin innocent enough, but the secrets she keeps locked away may change the dynamic of their relationship forever.
The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on November 1, 2015
Time moves onwards for Tristan and while Lilith gives him anything he wishes, all that he desires and more, the questions about where he is, who Lilith is, and what everything means whisper at the back of his mind. As their relationship moves onwards and games are played, Lilith reveals the truth that she has kept hidden from him when he least expects it… but the answers… those are harder to find.
In this work my love for Lilith really came to the fore. There are so many things about her personality and her actions in this work that seemed very familiar to me. Lilith loves reading and has a vast library of books, she teases Tristan with a can of RediWhip, and in many other ways as well. But in all of that the love, the need for him that she has remains strong and true throughout the work.
But in all of the love, the passions, the exploration of what Tristan desires, the little hints of things being not quite right are stronger in this work than the last. There are no windows, there is always heat around Tristan. Things magically appear from one waking moment to the next. It’s so much more clear, long before the reveal, that Lilith is a Succubus. But the way the hints are interspersed in the story makes things more seductive and passionate. It isn’t simply a hot flash when the erotic moments come in the story, there’s something more.
At one point they are described as sugar, being Tristan, and spice, being Lilith. It is very apt comparison and I dearly loved that moment because it defined their relationship in the best possible way. When things turn towards a slightly more dominant scene, it doesn’t feel out of place, though for Tristan it is strange and revealing.
The climax of the work, and I do not refer to the moment when, for the first time, Lilith and Tristan are truly intimate together, for that is a beautiful moment on its own, comes at the very end of the work, in the very last line when Lilith finally reveals her truth. She loves Tristan, which has been true from the first word of the series, but also that she is a Succubus, which has been hinted at as well from the beginning… but then the story… ends.
I would have liked to have seen what Tristan replied with, how he felt about that and if it mattered to not. I would have liked Lilith to explain the why of everything, but that didn’t happen. As such the work ends on a cliffhanger.
Four and a half out of five pitchforks.
Every bit as wonderful as story as the first work in the series and though I wished for so much more, what was told about Lilith and Tristan was wonderful in both heat and substance.
The sad thing is, at the time of this review, the next work in the series, if there was one that was meant to be… never appeared. I wish it had, there is so much story still to be told. It’s awful when a series like this with such perfect characters never comes to a satisfying conclusion.
I truly wish it had.
