Words nearly escape me. Nearly, she said…She’s a liar.
This series began for me back in early 2013 and I have followed along eagerly anticipating each new book and each related novella and short offered like an attention-starved puppy. This is also the only of its kind where I’ve bought both e-book and paperback because I needed to feel the pages under my fingertips.
With the first four books we learned of the existence of a kingdom. With the last four we learned how it was built and how it sustains, even when it comes so close to crumbling. The other accompanying stories offer additional insights, sometimes begging more questions, sometimes rounding off some jagged edges. Honestly, how all of these pieces fit together—in all of the twists and turns in this epic tableau of sin and virtue, pain and healing, love and redemption with parallels to Dante, Lewis Carroll, biblical scripture, chess, and god knows what else sometimes wearing kilts—all this is what leaves me nearly speechless in its genius.
These books weren’t my first in the land of erotica. But, they were among my first that were so smartly written with gorgeous prose and imagery that encouraged me on my quest to seek more.
With The Angel, I was introduced to my first male/male romance story and it was a gateway that opened up this genre of Romance and Erotica to include so many more amazing stories involving people of more walks of life.
These weren’t my first BDSM themed books, but they were the first I found that weren’t cookie cutter spank-n-call-me-sir. This delved into levels of sadism and a few kinks I wasn’t wholly comfortable with—but, I could safely visit those places and fully embrace that what may not be for me could be as necessary as breathing for others—and that there is healing in the breakdown.
These ain’t your typical romance. I don’t think they’re your typical erotica either. This isn’t one love affair. It’s many. It isn’t just one plot entwined with little sub-plots. It’s many. This series is chock full of twists and turns of unexpected, sometimes shocking, sometimes taboo, sometimes so-sweet-it-aches tenderness wrapped in brutality—all puzzle pieces of an epic saga of infinite intricacy in an underground world that both terrifies and intrigues.
There isn’t much of these characters and their experiences I can identify with, even their strengths and weaknesses are so far removed from my own. Yet I’ve been rapt these last few years peering through a looking glass into this risqué Wonderland where answers are given to questions I didn’t know I had for people I’ve grown to love.
This final book brought everything full circle and tied up most of the loose threads…enough so that I’m mostly satisfied believing in Forever and Everything and Happily Ever After in this underground kingdom.
Yet, greedy reader that I am, I still feel the need to childishly stomp my foot and declare that I don’t want this to be the end. I want more. I want more of the Priest with the King and Queen ruling from their place at his knee. I want more of Griffin and Michael. I even want more of Wesley because I miss his sweet face, and Nico because there wasn’t enough. I want more of Grace and Zach because they’re probably the most like me and found a way to be a part of it all.
I will miss them.
Nora Sutherlin. Father Marcus Stearns. Kingsley Edge. For those of us who have followed along their journey, we’ve learned how this unlikely trio came to know each other. We’ve witnessed the unique love these characters share for one another. We know the disagreements that have driven them apart, seen them deal with family and questionable relationships. Beginning with The Siren, the overall arc of The Original Sinners series spans across a series of eight novels which is split into two quartets: the Red Years and the White Years. Tiffany Reisz brings her characters full circle as she concludes her series with The Queen, where Nora makes one final confession to her Priest – Soren.
With Nora’s final confession, The Queen transitions from a castle in Scotland to the past, where Eleanor finds herself at the front door of Kingsley’s townhouse. She is homeless and jobless, without a penny to her name, and still bitterly angry with Soren. She’s not even certain if Kingsley will take her in, but instead, he surprises Elle with a job offer. He wants Elle to be the next great Dominatrix of the Eighth Circle. Kingsley convinces Elle to take up the whip, the flogger, embrace her dominant side and make loads of money. He dubs her Mistress Nora Sutherlin and issues a challenge: become the Red Queen of the Underground.
Nora embraces Kingsley’s challenge, continues to move forward in her writing career, and through it all, her feelings for Soren continue to swirl with confusion. Underneath all of the bitterness and anger, she still feels undying love for her Priest. While part of The Queen is about Nora’s transition to a career as a Dominatrix, the other half of the story is about Eleanor and Soren. The Queen really does come down to a set of vows made by Soren and Eleanor when she was just fifteen-years-old: if Eleanor would promise him forever, Soren would promise her everything. And Soren has no intention of breaking his vow.
I have faithfully followed The Original Sinners series to its conclusion. When you find a great new series to read, you embrace it, count down the days until each book releases and hope it remains strong to the end. You dream of a conclusion that exceeds your expectations. Well….Tiffany Reisz did not disappoint. The Queen included a cast of all of my favorite characters from across the series. The suspense held me glued to the pages as I pushed toward the climax. I can tell everyone with absolute certainty that I could not have dreamed of a more perfect ending for Soren, Nora and Kingsley and the rest of The Original Sinners! Congratulations to author Tiffany Reisz – The Queen is a 5-star novel and has earned a place on my list of 2015 favorites!
