I could have obsessed over Hugo and Bree: Abenaki legend was common where I used to live, and many of the old stories and tales from legions of different tribal groups had a curious mix of horrific elements even as they sought to teach, explain or remember. But, what emerges from the story of Consumed by Love is a carefully described warning, making you rethink that last love song or poem.
I was expecting far more scare in that all the lights on sort of way, instead the scare is in my own perceptions of love and what it means to be in love, and truly give of yourself. The extremes to which Bree accommodates Hugo’s needs, even as she is gaining a sexual fix from the man he used to be are symptomatic of her own dependency, a dangerous situation for all involved.
Most certainly a book for adults only, Tyler uses her ability with words to create a multi-layered visual story that will create far more questions than it answers. Both entertaining and precisely pointed in its unmasking of damaged psyche, this is a book for those who want to think for hours after the last page.
I purchased a copy of this title for my own library. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
My favorite quote, possibly from anything I've read was "Evil is like water: it seeps through the cracks and overflows from within."
Pavarti's depictions of the love making scenes are titillating, and I'm difficult to impress (Neil Gaiman's American God's sex scene gave me the best cliterection so far, but contenders are out there!)
If you want to be disgusted, enthralled, aroused, and entertained, I highly recommend!
I don't often read horror, but I would certainly read more by this author.
The author made me want to read it when part of me wanted to put it down yet I'm a bit of a wuss and usually don't read horror but this was EROTIC horror so I HAD to know what happened. I'm still not sure how I feel about it but I want to read everything I can by this author so that is good.
Definitely worth the $.99 and 1/2 hour of my time.
This is a graphic tale by its nature, but the underlying message is rich. Ms. Devi's ability to paint a vivid portrait with her words is remarkable.

I actually mean that. This brilliant little tale is a re-imagining of a well-known Native American boogyman, the Wendigo.Read more
