I wanted to like the Devil's Dozen, because lesbians, hooray, and the last two paragraphs were an excellent spin/twist, but the characters weren't quite convincing, especially in reacting to a whole bunch of death in the start of the story, and I didn't care for how the bodies of either woman were described. (I get what they were aiming for with the line about Marilyn Monroe but golly did it Not Land.)
Patrick Tumblety's Restless Sinners has one hell of an opening, and the aside was kind of awesomely weird/gross, I dug that. This had a kind of Cabin in the Woods-esque vibe, interesting and pretty fucked-up but well crafted. (Didn't love the 'punish the Other Woman too' trope but this was an intriguing enough piece otherwise that I could still enjoy it.)
Iskra Ryder's I'll Be Seeing You was great; solidly composed and clear and engaging; it does a great job with the theme by being entirely self-contained and yet feeling like part of a bigger story in a good way. Well put together, hot and with a hopeful ending.
Emma Michaels and Michael Cross' Until Death We Won't Part was also solid; neat plot and competently written.
About a third of this antho wasn't quite to my taste - some of the other erotica stores were more purple-prose-y than I prefer for sure - but Ryder, Tumblety and Kinnaird were the definite standouts.
I sincerely loved how there were dangerously eerie stories as well as deeply heartfelt ones that brought me close to tears. I felt such a deep connection with the characters, an element that I was never expecting due to the short length of each entry, but the diverse stories never left me bored. I found myself deeply pondering true, eternal love as I read the last line, and I adored how deep the love ran and how profound it was in so many of the stories. Of course, I can't forget the poetry! Their rhythmic elegance brought something irreplaceable to the anthology!
Love doesn't come in a neat little package. There are obstacles to be overcome and an endurance that will be rivaled. Having said that, "Death, Love, Lust" depicts love in every light. I loved that this anthology was not just about heterosexual couples, but had a great representation of LGBTQ+ relationships. I cannot tell you how pleased this made me! You definitely won't find your stereotypical pairings here, but what you will find shall be just as wonderful! I do believe that I have discovered quite a few authors to look out for, and I can't wait to see what they put out next! If you want to read an astounding collection of supernatural stories spiced with death, love, and lust, you have definitely got to pick this one up! And like Marie said, read it in the dark!!!!
An assortment of delicious stories and poems that are sure to please!
As the title suggests, each piece of this collection involves a gruesome death, undying love, or a passionate sexual need. Some contain all three. Each author brought their own voice, their own style to this anthology and though every story contained the same central themes, they were each unique. Some brought tears, some brought a sense of longing, some brought terror, and some brought lust. Every work contained in this collection grasped me firmly and held me, riveted, to the page.
I was captivated from the start, each story and poem leaving me in a dreamy daze of contemplation. I recommend reading it in the dark.
As I normally review teen appropriate YA books I better stress the fact that this anthology is for 18+ Adults Only!
I love anthology’s! I think they are great for getting a little peep at different authors ‘voices’ and finding new favorites.
The Death-Love-Lust Anthology is a collection of adult poems and short stories exploring, you guessed it, death love and lust, featuring both hetero and homosexual couples – oh and delicious demons and righteous reapers.
The poems are absolutely beautiful, I read them all multiple times.
The stories range from dark and mysterious to sexy and sinful, with beautiful deep everlasting love shining through.
Normally I’d stay away from erotica that dabbles with death, but as the lovely Lily Luchesi was a part of it and given how I really enjoy her Paranormal Detective series, I gave it a go. I was pleasantly surprised! This is a collection of well-rounded pieces connecting life, death and love. Obviously there were some stories I preferred over others, but as a whole it was a really enjoyable, engaging and entertaining read.
Death Love Lust is a collection of poetry exploring the themes of Death, Love, or Lust, and how they are connected.
Some of the entries are short poems, while others are longer, more story-like, using characters in the exploration of Death Love and Lust.
Even if you don't necessarily read poetry, there is something everyone can enjoy in this anthology. And with authors like Jen L. Joyal, Aurelia Fray, Catherine Stovall and Lily Luchesi, among others, it's hard to find fault here.
