"another sizzler in the WindWorld Series"
In Lucien's Khamsin, Charlotte Boyett-Compo has created
passionate and sensual characters in a post apocalyptic
world, another sizzler in the WindWorld Series.
After the year 2052, in a world thrown almost back to the
dark ages by man's own self destructiveness, where the
plague and nuclear war have claimed countless lives,
Revenants have taken a position of authority. Revenants
are long lived creatures that need to take blood to live.
They do not however, need to kill their victims as do
Vampires. It's theorized their origins may not have been
born on this world but little is known about them beyond
the myths that the Revenants are the same mindless beasts
In the 13th century Lucien Korvia is turned by the
Revenant Queen Sibylline as he lies dying after his
village is attacked by legendary creatures of midnight and
madness. His only desire is to avenge the deaths of those
he loved. He can not know what path his life will take
him nor will the changes and destruction he will witness
in the far off future, nor the schemes Sibylline will
employ in pursuit of her ends.
Khamsin is one of the survivors of the holocaust following
the nuclear bombing over most of the world. Food, clean
water and escape from the plague are hard to come by and
when Khamsin and the group she is with are captured by
Lucien's men, all she knows is what tales were told in the
dark, tales of blood sucking demon Revenants.
She is unaware of how truly special she is in more ways
than one and when Lucien demands she be brought to him,
she is terrified that he will possess her body and take
her blood by force. It's Khamsin's spirit that attracts
Lucien and makes him determined that she be his willingly,
and it is his sense of honor and deep pain that wins her
heart. His deeply sensual nature resonates with hers and
when he discovers her unhappy history, he sets out to show
her just how enticing and pleasurable life in his arms can
be. In truly mind blowing fashion they explore their
growing love and sensual awareness for each other until
Lucien is incapacitated and Khamsin is kidnapped.
Will Lucien be able to unravel the plot and get Khamsin
back before his rival can harm her? Will Khamsin be able
to forgive what Lucien may have to do to her back? Will
Sibylline be friend or foe?
This is a wonderfully sensual novel with great character
depth, intense sexuality, and an encompassing love story
set in an alternate time line. Thoroughly enjoyable! Buy
it, read it, you'll love it.
