Another wonderful book by Emily Tilton. This futuristic sci-fi romance takes place far into the future but the people in this town, Concordia, live almost like the early settler once lived long ago. Concordia runs with out electricity, technology, and modern conveniences. With the man as the head of the household and his wives (yes, I said wives) are submissive to him in all things. Polygamous has begun with the epiphanies and visions of the Teller by the Elder.
Now I must say the first few pages were hard for me to sort through and get it all straight in my mind, not because it was not interesting or a bad storyline. Exactly the opposite in fact. But trying to figure out the Concordist cultish ways and knowing who was who and who belonged to who left me a little confused at first. Once Mary settled into the Abbott's household the story flowed smoother drawing me in to the erotic lives lived behind closed doors. As you learn more about the eon-wives of the two main families featured the storyline blossomed in ways I never expected. There are hot steamy scenes that even had me blushing along with Mary and Greta. This is a definite recommended read drawing readers from several different genres. Domestic discipline and spanking to list a few. With twist and turns, come dig further into the what started the visions and epiphanies from the Teller and meet The Sister-Wives of Concordia.
I enjoyed this riveting futuristic world on another planet. The witty and brilliant storyline about a cult where the men are dominant and the women submissive and are controlled by corporal punishment and kinky sex. The elders had a number of wife's and most everyone were controlled by a form of mass hypnotized people who believed anything they were told. Mark Abbott knew what was going on but had his own agenda. I highly recommend this Marvolous book.
This story takes you to a future planet, but it also takes you to a society that is more reminiscent of the past. It reminds me of a Mormon type history. Mark Abbott and his wife save Mary from a terrible fate in the Hall of Pleasure as Mark takes Mary as his third eon wife. He teaches her all about what is expected of her intimately in his household. Mary's older more experienced sister wives help her learn about the expectations in this home as well. Mary comes to love her husband and fellow sister wives. But the story takes a sudden twist and Mary wonders if she will loose all that she has come to hold dear. You must read this wonderful story to solve the suspense at the end.
Wow, does this author have such a talent to create a futuristic world with enough detail to make you feel as if it could really exist. This is such a well written story, with enough steam and sizzle you will definitely need a fan and probably the AC as well, seriously. I was hooked from page one and just kept right on reading until the end. You definitely don't want to miss this one!
I will admit this is a uniquely written sci-fi futuristic story that will take the reader on a journey into the erotic realm of a new world. One where a select few have decided to create a new and secretive society that allows individual people to declare epiphanies and visions from the Teller. The Triple Senate has an elder, Phineas Jones, the overseer, John Stone and the Prester, Mark Abbott. The Book of Concord was created by Phineas Jones and John Stone and proclaimed to the followers as the Tellers for the eternal kingdom and their eternal thrones. They accept the mysteries of dominance and submission and epiphanies and teach the men that they are to use their wives and then take eon-wives and use them, all for their own pleasure. The people of Concord have banished some of the modern ways, technology, clothing, and have a set standard for the clothing, even undergarments of their followers. They keep them sequestered from the world, and so they will not tell others about their lifestyle.
As I was reading this story, my mind was seeing the people that follow cult leaders and start believing whatever they say as the truth. Even Mark Abbott and his senior wife see how obviously fictional it all was, but have even learned to manipulate the system using their own Book of Concord.
The plot of the story shows how easily people can accept the “epiphanies” and follow them, and the more the men of the Triple Senate want, then just call it a vision or epiphany from the Teller, using a hypnotic chant, and it becomes the truth and the people willing believe it. The women are submissive, accepting the teachings, knowing husbands will punish for correction and how three ways of using their wives for their pleasure. The women are allowed pleasure if it is granted, but it all revolves around the husbands and their baser desires. Then add multiple wives, because they accept a polyamorous lifestyle. “The elder spoke, “People of the Concord, I greet you in the name of the Teller, who hath told unto me the epiphany of your eternal kingdom.”
This science fiction story, based in a time far into the future, after the collapse of Earth, tells of a group of people, the Concordists, who are followers of teachings of the Teller that, in the words of the author, promoted a seething cauldron of erotic mastery and submission as a path to eternal life.
The book of Concord tells that brides must be made ready to please their husbands, and that the tradition of men taking eon-wives in addition to their senior wives, a practice which was frowned upon by the traditionalists, the Fidelia people. Eighteen-year-old Mary Haven is to become the fourth eon-wife of the Elder Phineas Jones, but his wife, Mrs Jones, intends to send her to the Hall of Pleasures to be enjoyed by the overseer and his henchman. Mark Abbott hears of this, and hatches a plan to save her from that fate by making her his second eon-wife. This doesn’t stop Mary from having to endure a humiliating public inspection before the marriage. The government of Fidelia, however, vow to stop the practices taking place in Concordia, and the leader is arrested. Mark Abbott and his wives try to save the Concordists from this fate.
This book is written in Ms Tilton’s trademark detailed and explicit erotic style that will have you mopping your brow (or someplace else) before you have passed more than a dozen pages. It is steamy, erotic and fascinating, and I could not put the book down, pressing on well into the night, to finish reading. I have never been disappointed with any of this author’s previous books, and this one is no exception. Highly recommended.
I enjoyed this book about a patriarchal polygamous cult set in a futuristic world on another planet. The leader, Phineas Jones, claimed to have visions of a supernatural entity that dictated the rules that became their religion. They were required to live a mostly traditional lifestyle without technology, with men completely dominating their women, using corporal punishment and sex with regularity. Elder Jones had visions that conveniently satisfied his kinky desires and his people had to adapt as new visions were revealed. The followers of Elder Jones were people attracted to the d/s lifestyle and the book's protagonist, Mark Abbott, was there for just that reason. The author did an amazing job of covering all the bases to make this story work. Children were completely separated and protected from the kinky side of life in the community. A social hierarchy that coincided with the political structure was in place so that new practices could be introduced first to the higher ups. Nonconformance was dealt with in an effective manner as well. All of the specifics and details of the lifestyle were expertly revealed by the author through a combination of narrative, dialogue, including retelling of visions, and quotes from the book that served as their bible. At the same time, the plot, centered around an innocent girl named Mary, but with many twisted branches, started at the very beginning of the book and flowed very nicely to the end. The many characters were well developed and the plot was compelling, as Mark and his wives try to save Mary from a life in the Hall of Pleasure. To succeed, Mark has to figure out what's going on politically, which only becomes more urgent when the plot takes a sharp turn. This book is excellent.
