Review: Triumph (Tribute #3) by Kate Pearce

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.”   I don’t always make a deal about this kind of tag on a book but, dear reader, please know that this one means exactly what it says.  There is all of this and more in this story.  You have been warned.

This third installment of this series isn’t quite as harsh as the first two, but it sure did take some interesting turns.  As you see on the cover, there are tentacles involved.  Not exactly my kink, but in this context it worked.

I will also mention, this is not a series that you want to read out of order.  In fact, I notice that there is a “complete Tribute collection” also coming out.  You may want to bite the bullet and get that if you haven’t already gotten the first two.  In my humble opinion, it is well worth the cost and the time to read.

The story may be kinky in every meaning of the word, but there is a story.  I found it to be an engaging story that – pun alert – grabbed me by the throat and wouldn’t let go.  You will have to read the book to see the pun there. *evil grin*

This book has more shoot-em up action as well as kinky sex.  It brought the series to a rather satisfying conclusion.

With the exception that I got this in three parts, I thoroughly enjoyed this series.  It hit my dark kink taste bud but provided an entertaining, if cheesy, story too.  Try it.  You may like it too.
