Review: Triumph by Kate Pearce

3 stars

Read on 9th April 2022.


Rehz Akran has had enough of the Tribute program and its sadistic overseer, Palk. When Palk captures Rehz’s mate, Anna Lee, and offers her and Aled Price to the Ungrich for further research, Rehz is ready for rebellion. But first, with the help of Kai Mexr—who wants Aled back just as much as Rehz wants Anna—he must break into the Ungrich world, rescue Anna, and discover why they want her so badly.

The chilling answer to that question lies in Anna’s forgotten origins—origins that Aled shares. To save their lovers, Rehz and Kai must take on Palk and a government that is more than willing to sacrifice Anna and Aled to keep the peace.

The two couples join forces—in more ways than one—and together they discover that they may be capable of defeating two civilizations and changing the course of Mitan history forever.

Reader discretion advised. This title contains the following sensitive themes: Dubious Consent, Non-Consent, Explicit Violence, Heavy Kink.

Bookish Things: 132 pages. This cover is very similar in style to the first and second books in the Tribute trilogy. I read the first book in the trilogy, Sacrifice back in 2016 and book #2, Retribution in 2022.

Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $4.15.

The third in the tribute series didn’t live up to my expectations.

I had hoped there would be much to celebrate about the conclusion of this alien/tentacle erotic trilogy but alas it left more questions than answers.

What started as a wild erotic ride in book one petered out to barely described robotic acts of thrusting, even between Anna Lee and Rehz Akran the couple from the first and best book.

The conflict escalated and resolved incredibly quickly and even the emotional turmoil that was meant to hit home was too quickly handled to land.

Still, if you like your dub-con/non-con stories based in the Sci-Fi realm you might enjoy this quick little trilogy. Easy to read, somewhat enjoyable, and something a bit different for your reading pleasure.
