Life in the post-plague society is harsh, and punishments are severe. Tria is an extremely severe, non consensual story, featuring spanking, caning, anal punishments, and bondage elements.

Prima, another story set in this same world, is offered below.

    Although Prima by Carolyn Faulkner is my all time favorite book, Tria is truly a close second. It is set in the same time period as Prima and the discipline is no less harsh, but the sexual intensity with every stroke is evident, present and dripping…ooops I meant gripping (wink) Carolyn does it again, bringing you into a world where you struggle to imagine such a life and then are secretly jealous that this life is not your own. If you enjoy strict control, thourough discipline and love making that makes your toes curl among other things then this book will make you very very happy. I was out of my mind with emotions and non stop gasping with this story. Pleasure and Pain comingling until you can\\\’t tell where one begins and the other ends. Love it!!!.

    I read this right after I read Prima and enjoyed it as well. It has a great plot and I enjoyed the relationship between Tria and Thomas. I would love to see another book about this world!

    While the discipline is as harsh as in Prima it felt like the relationship was more superficial and the story more rushed. There were some wonderful and unique parts to this story but then it felt like you were rushed to the next plot point. If there is a third story I hope it is given the time to become its own story like Prima was.

    This is a good sequel to Prima where Carolyn Faulkner first introduced us to a world that deals with life in the post-plague society with a extremely severe, non consensual story. This has lot of harsh BDSM themes is not for the faint of heart.

    The setting is Fantastic and the characters well developed. Just for me, I would have liked more emotional connection. Having said that, I get how this is the culture of the times….i suppose I wanted a little more bucking the system from the Man. But, as I said it is just my preference. Well written so give this series (Prima #1) a go.

    This is the companion piece to Prima. While this is hard-core, I did find this book a great read as well. Again, the description to set us up and throughout the book was just right and I found this to be as enjoyable as Prima. Overall, a great read.

    This is a good follow up book to Prima even though I liked the first one better this one was really good to. The discipline in this story is just as harsh but is considered more a way of life and young girls are raised in houses where they are trained to be accepting of any and all punishments dolled out to them.

    I like this story a little less then most of Carloyn Faulkner books. I believe it women were so rare. They should have treasured them, instead making them no more then slaves.

    I read this book after reading Prima (anther story written by Faulkner about this same world, so to speak). It is difficult not to compare the two books. This book seemed less shocking to me…but I think that that us only because I read the first one and learned about the world these characters are living in. This book has many intense scenes and can be somewhat shocking. I have to say that I loved this book – it is totally a guilty pleasure. Five stars for making me blush….

    This was a very intense story. I was left with questions after reading it — what would happen if Tria had a baby girl at some point? Who are the other people who live in the house? Is there any sort of resistance movement about the way society is? What\\\’s life like in other countries? Are there ANY relationships that we would consider healthy in that world? What will happen to Tria (and to Prima, for that matter) if her man dies before her? etc.

    Still, overall I liked it. It\\\’s not an HEA, but the story\\\’s conceit is very interesting and the scenes are intensely spicy.

    If you liked Prima you most probably will like this one, even though I personally liked Prima better. Very good stroy with even more harsh discipline being doled out in some very interesting ways.

    Nice follow up story to Prima. The story felt less well developed than the first book. More about the punishment than the people, but maybe it shouldn\\\’t be compared in that way. The underlying story was still interesting to read and find out more about the characters and the world the author created.

    Had I not just read Prima, I might have rated this 3 stars rather than 2. Then again, it may have been the other way around. The bottom line is this book compares poorly to Prima. In fact, Tria reads much like the same book written with slightly different characters and a lot less skill. It is shorter and has nowhere near as much character development. There are several characters that aren\’t really explained at all (for example, who, what, and why is Rook?). If I didn\’t know it was written by the same author I would never have believed it.

    Editing misses abound, mainly of the spell-check error variety but there were many incorrect pronouns as well. It was distracting and not at all the quality I\’m used to from Carolyn Faulkner. The ending was abrupt and rather trite for this type of story. It felt as if the author decided to wrap a pink bow around a firearm (yes, I\’m stretching a wee bit too far on that analogy ;P).

    Even worse, I felt there must have been a check list of punishments/ordeals that Tria had to endure whether they fit into the story or not. The enema scene in particular felt that way, as if tossed in at the last minute so \”enema scene\” could be checked off the list.

    Despite all this disappointment, I was engaged by the story all the way through until close to the end. I may have been able to forgive many of the editing errors had I not been so let down by the last part of the book.

  37. Redrabbitt

    The plot of this erotic horror story is intense and definitely not a comfortable story. The cast of characters mainly revolves around Abril/Tria and Thomas and their interaction. Thomas is a cold and calculated man who thrives on control and inflicting pain, and he does just that to Tria, simply because he can, and he enjoys it. The story is more thoughts and emotions than conversational dialog. The story is the second book in this series but reads as a standalone.

    Tria is a great follow-up to Prima. Their stories are set in the same world, but are very different. Bought on the auction block by Thomas, Tria is his property to do with as he pleases. Like Prima, she endures severe punishment and humiliation whenever her owner feels like it. Her body is aroused by whatever he does to her, which only adds to her humiliation. This book does not go into as much detail of the punishments as Prima, but the message gets across none the less. The author does a fantastic job of revealing the thoughts and emotions of both Thomas and Tria, as well as their histories. This book is another masterpiece of severe dark erotica. It is not for the faint of heart, but fans of the extreme will love it.

  41. Good bedtime reading

    Set in the future where women are \’protected\’ by being \’owned\’ first by their Principle and then auctioned off as a breeding \’machine\’ to any man who has the funds to maintain them…this is the story of Abril. She becomes the chattel of Thomas Ryker who has dark erotic tendencies in sadism/punishment, humiliation yet shows a side of him that cares for his human property.

  43. Laurel Lasky

    This is a severe dark romance. He\’s a sadist who loves inflicting pain and pleasure and Tria is a pain slave. The pain no matter how terrible it is, she hates it but her body loves it. The emotions of Tria and Thomas are well discribed and the punishments are intense, severe and harsh and then there is intense pleasure. It\’s non consensual but becomes consensual. Reading this was a heart thumping, pulse raising read. If your looking for a sweet romance with a HEA then this is not the book for you. I happen to love this dark story which had a satisfying ending.
