"an amazingly ingenious, erotic tale"
Sureya, a pale skinned nanny, witnesses a red heart, a
second sun, rising on the horizon. It is a sign that the
new Supplicant has risen. With the sighting of this
remarkable event, Sureya's body will come to life. Sexual
feelings will flood her body in raging waves. She does
not understand what is happening to her. Why are these
feelings suddenly assaulting her?
There are certain traits that a Supplicant has and Sureya
will find out she has those traits. And that she is the
new Supplicant. It is through the passionate orgasms that
Sureya has, whether it is man or woman, whoever gives her
that climax can have a prayer granted.
Sureya is a sweet, timid, and virginal woman. This
overwhelming new role will be a challenge she is not sure
she can fulfill. She will have to carefully pick through a
treacherous maze of a king's love, priests' religious
beliefs and barbarians that will want her for their own
personal agendas. As Sureya experiences sexual
empowerment, she will find the right path to venture down
as The Supplicant.
The Supplicant is by author Lucinda Betts. In The
Supplicant, Ms. Betts pushes every sexual envelope known
to man. From the very beginning until the end, sex
dominates this book. The premise of the story is built on
a woman that is chosen to be the Supplicant, whose
climaxes are the way to grant prayers. Along with this
scorching premise, Ms. Betts blends smoothly the most wild
and weird creatures you will ever read.
In this novel, the darker the skin of a person, the more
treasured and higher in ranking they are. And the paler,
lighter the skin, the lower a person is considered. This
reviewer found the turning of the tables of color unique
and refreshing. The total effect is an amazingly
ingenious, erotic tale.
This is the second book that this reviewer has read of Ms.
Betts' and she is a wizardly writer with a pen dipped in
