The first thing that I have to point out about Lilith Enraptured is the world. The concept behind it grabbed my attention from the very beginning. The book has a futuristic sci fi feel to it with a slice of historical fantasy. This world consists of numerous different planes/dimensions. Some are very technologically advanced while some are extremely primitive and medieval feeling. It is all one world. Each dimension has just evolved differently. There are even some similarities between the different planes.

Lilith’s job within the Divinity is to go to different planes and study them. She then compiles her data and analyzes it, compares it to others and moves on to another dimension to observe some more. She loves her job. It allows her to introduce new technology to multiple dimensions. There is just one problem with her most recent jump into a new dimension, she did not take it willingly and she has no clue as to where she is.

Sorin is a royal warrior in Staria. Staria is a dimension in constant battle against a monstrous war mongering evil. The dimension he calls home can be looked at as very primitive in their lifestyle. Their mating/marriage ritual can definitely be considered barbaric compared to modern standards. He is one of the few men that will be allowed to pick one of the otherworlder’s that has been presented before him and a few of his fellow knightly warriors. Lilith soon finds herself with a man claiming to be her husband in a faraway place that she does not belong.

I liked everything about this book. The characters all fleshed out very well. Sorin and Lilith work well as a couple. They both put forth a tremendous amount of effort to make their seemingly impossible situation work out. Readers are introduced very briefly to the heroines of the other three books, along with the males that have taken them. I cannot wait to read the next books in this series and I am ecstatic about the fact that they are on my Kindle waiting for me.

Please note that this is an erotic romance. There are numerous scorching hot sex scenes between a chest pounding alpha male that wants his hesitant bride to want him as much as he wants her. Lilith has some self-doubts about her desires. She wants to go home, but she wants Sorin even though it goes against what she thinks she wants. They make some intense reading.

  1. I love romance but mixing it with Sci-fi didn't work out for me. However this sounds solid in the love department.

    P.S. the cabin fever didn't work out for me, it was too much sex and less plot :(
