It all starts with a young man who gets picked up in a bar by an impossibly beautiful woman, goes home, gets thrown into bed, and is then shown the night of his life. It's an absolute fantasy scenario for any horny young virgin, and the first big twist comes when Raethiana reveals herself to be a succubus and expresses such shock that sex didn't kill him. She must know how he managed to resist her sexual magic, so she decides to move in, take over his life, and tease him beyond belief. It sounds like an odd couple kind of comedy, and that element is certainly there, but there's a much bigger story beneath it all.
There's a significant amount of conflict here, involving both a hunter of supernatural creatures and a rebellion in the supernatural realm. There's more than enough action and horror to entertain any reader, but there's also a surprisingly seductive tale of romance woven into the erotic fetish exploration. Raethiana and John, succubus and human, explore a wide range of erotic adventures together - some of my favorites, of course, involving gender-bending magic - all leading to an honest-to-gosh romance that really serves as the heart of the tale.
I know, I know, I'm teasing a lot without really saying much, but I don't want to give anything away. You really need to see for yourself how and why the relationship develops the way it does, where the gender bending aspects come in, and how all the story threads come together in a fantastic climax. I loved it, and I came away from it aroused, amused, and astounded. Dylena sets up a lot at the start, and seems to be almost promising too much, but it all pays off in the end.
I read all three parts of the Raethiana Trilogy before, but having them in one book really shows off the author's ability to weave separate stories into one sexy, fast-paced adventure. There's sex, romance, magic, epic battles, and at the heart of it all, there's a love story for the ages. Watching John and Raethiana transcend mortal limitations to grasp at True Love beyond human understanding is an incredible experience, and I was immersed in their story from the get-go. The characters grow and change so much within the pages of this novel that you feel like you know them intimately, and by the time it's all over, I was left with a feeling of nostalgia and a twinge of sadness. I miss them already!
This author is an incredible storyteller and what he offers is both genuine and unique, a scarce commodity these days. Seriously, pick this one up. It's a far cry from the typical urban fantasy model and it's SO worth it!
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a review.
Why is it amazing you ask? (I know you did) Because it's very hard to find a good mix between erotica and romance. Raethiana manages to be a perfect blend. Just enough story, believable characters in an interesting world. And plenty of steaminess to glue it all together.
Highly recommend this one!
