Lilitu: Memoirs of a Succubus by Jonathan Fortin is the release of Crystal Lake Publishing and the disturbed timeline of a parallel earth harkening back to good Queen Victoria. This history is given a slap up its head with the coming of the Nightfall, the darkening of the skies, the release of vampires and the lilitu into proper English society and places of power. The Lilitu are a species of incubi and succubi who love to feed off your dreams and sexual energy. Human beings are the commodity to ...more

Fortin has created a dark and forbidding world where creatures have thrown off their shackles and brought on eternal night. This book is a brilliant look at what happens when the things that go bump in the night take control. And Maraina is stuck between revenge and survival. A must read for urban fantasy and horror fans!

This was so much outside the usual genres I read that I feel unable to review it - having no idea of the genre traditions. Personally, I prefer my supernatural beings living in the shadows of human civilisation, rather than vice versa. However, to an outsider like myself, this was a wild, imaginative ride with sights and visions that verge on the unpleasant side of fantastical (as intended).

A rip-roaring journey which takes the reader all the way from a graceful country estate to the horror of a life which has been shattered.
The main character has to find her feet in a world set on fire by betrayals, supernatural creatures and an unquenchable passion which her supernatural lover has gifted her with.
Nothing is ever as it seems in this world and she must learn to flow with the tide or else be drowned and lost forever.
I loved this novel, the characters, the writing, the way the plot

LILITU is the story of Maraina Blackwood, a woman in Victorian England struggling to navigate its rigid gender norms. Which, let's be real, is stressful enough.

But then demons take over!

Maraina is given a choice: join their wicked ranks by becoming a succubus, or be enslaved with the other mortals. Seems pretty clear-cut, right?

Captivating tale that keeps you turning pages. Descriptions of worlds and creatures were evocative and creative. I’m not much a fan of a “Victorian” style of prose and speech, so that worked less well for me.
