#Review: The Orgy at the End of the World, by @cerebraltart

The Orgy at the End of the WorldTitle: The Orgy at the End of the World
Author: India Reid
Rating: 5/5 stars

“Melissa Smith has let her whole life pass by without taking any chances, and the whole world is going to be gone by morning.

As a comet quickly approaches Earth, Melissa ventures to the infamous Time Square Orgies. Late to the game and unsure of how to even begin to play, she nervously meets James, a rugged bastard with a southern drawl. When he crushes his lips against hers, she can see starlight behind her closed eyes when she’s never even bothered to notice the night sky before. With the help of a devilishly handsome Irishman and a gorgeous, curvy redhead, James makes Melissa beg and plead as she begins to feel things that she never thought possible… but with the world as they know it coming to an end, can one night possibly be enough?

Warning: This 5200-word MFFM foursome includes double penetration, oral sex, dominant men, sensual women and also, there’s a weird bit with some cucumbers. Author is not liable for unmentionables tossed away with reckless abandon, only to be found hours later dangling off of the ceiling fan.(description from Goodreads)

I recently read Reid’s other story Flirting with DeathFrom that story, I knew that this story would most likely meet my approval. It did.

The strengths in character and story development that I saw in Flirting with Death are apparently, and in a way even stronger, in The Orgy at the End of the World. Being set in the same “universe”, the sense that the world is going to soon end and people can just let go and do whatever they wish is a strong part of what makes the stories great. This story goes further by showing a massive orgy (a spectrum of sexy from lovemaking to more brutal acts) instead of a more violent subject matter.

The end of the world can bring out the real character in a person, and that’s exactly what Reid explores with Melissa in this story. She was even able to make the end of the world a romantic scene, even though it’s the apocalypse. Her skill to weave a great story into a genre sometimes lacking in the department will keep me coming back for more stories, especially if they’re similar to this one. Various aspects of sex at the end of the world is fascinating to read about.

About the Author:

India Reid is an American expat writer of alternative, cerebral erotica.  She has a sense of humor, just not a very good one.

Her writing is provocative, witty, and often charming, with thematic focuses on the psychological and philosophical.  Interests in science fiction, fantasy, horror and history have shaped her stories into tales of dangerous men and sharp-tongued women that transcend the pornography genre.

She loves men, women, film noir, tongue-in-cheek banter, literary theory, giant robots battling inter-dimensional alien invaders, failed revolutions and feminist liberation.  Most of her words come out heavily lubricated with whiskey and wine.

Her first full-length novels, With a Whimper and Hell on High Heels will release in September.
