Review: The Nameless One


TheNamelessOne

3 stars

Read on February 3rd, 2017.

Synopsis: An erotic horror short story…
Sometimes revenge can only be achieved with magic.
Laura and Julian Bennet were husband and wife Egyptologists who were looking for an ancient tomb of a lost pharaoh’s lesser wife…one who’d been so evil and destructive her grave has no name; she has no name. Legend and rumors said she’d been a stunningly beautiful and sensual sorceress who’d once had her lover, Rameses II, under her evil spell until the more powerful Priests of Amun captured and locked her into a magical sarcophagus for eternity–or so they’d believed. But when Laura and Julian found her tomb, the price it cost them was far more than they’d been prepared to pay. Julian’s life. Then Laura, heartbroken, had to delve into the most dangerous of black magics to defeat The Nameless One, extract revenge, and put the demon back where she belongs.

Bookish Things: 31 pages. The cover is adequate, not the most stunning, but not the worst I’ve seen. Apt for the story.

Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $3.33.

My Review: 

The Nameless One is a short horror story set in Egypt. It follows husband and wife, Laura and Julian Bennet, who are Egyptologists looking for an elusive tomb.

The book blurb leaves little left to explore when you actually read the book, but given its length, that’s not entirely unexpected.

The pace felt a little fast, some of the richness of Egypt missing because of this and the writing style. There wasn’t a lot of time given to building up the world around Laura and Julian, which I felt was quite a shame.

If given a bit more sensory information, this story could have been very creepy and horrific.

This is marketed as an erotic horror, but the erotic content is very light on and no great detail was given. The opportunity for exploring the erotic nature of the idea in this book was missed almost entirely, which was a shame.

Overall, this read well, if a little clipped, had a reasonable plot and had the beginnings of a good story with likeable characters. I only wish we were given more.

**Note: I was provided an electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**

It’s been done before, but there’s a twist…

The twist being that there’s not one, but two, amazingly sexy Doms who want to top body-conscious Shay Greene: the startlingly submissive babe who doesn’t know it. *yawn*

This is strictly a tale for those who want some quick titillation, if you want plot, good dialogue and realistic situations, then this book is NOT for you.

Synopsis: When Shay Greene finally decides to give in to her long-harbored erotic desires and explore the world of kink, she is thrilled to encounter two dominant men who surpass even her wildest fantasies. The only problem: Lucas Cross and Jonathan Manning turn out to be the billionaire partners who own Augustan Technologies, the company that has just hired her. Shay is mortified, and she tries to suppress her sexual desires and maintain a professional front. But the two Doms have other plans for her, and each of the men tries to win her submission for himself. A long-time friendly rivalry becomes much more as Shay becomes caught up in their power-play.

Lucas is darkly alluring, carefully calculating as he ruthlessly bends her to his will. Jonathan is spontaneous, using her body as he pleases. As the men show Shay what true submission is, she finds it impossible to separate sex from her emotions. She knows that she has to make a choice, and her heart knows who she truly wants.

But when Shay finally does make her decision, she finds that there are consequences for her actions. Can she escape with her love and her life intact? Find out in Torn: Caught between the Billionaires!
