A really funny adult tale to read after you've had a really bad day.

This humorous adult fairly tale had me laughing through the entire story. Princess Amalia is a beautiful and innocent young woman who has been extremely overprotected by her father King Norwood. She has been raised with maids and soldiers surrounding her, whose sole purpose is to protecting her virtue. Amalia grows up completely naive and uneducated when it comes to the relations between a man and a woman. By order of the king, the entire kingdom is forbidden to speak to the princess regarding this intimate subject matter, and the penalty is death. But something curious has suddenly appeared beneath her sheets one night, and she has no idea what it is. As the story unfolds, the author has you cheering on Amalia's quirky aunts and her sensible mother, the queen. Together they work to convince the king to tell her the truth, and at the same time try to discover how this very odd lump came to be in the princess's bed. Great fun to read from such a talented author! His style of writing is very smooth and flows very well. The characters are simple but well developed as I would expect in a short story. I hope to see more of his work. Yes, it is for adults and yes it is adult humor. If one has a problem with BN because adult fiction is not separate from other fictional works, then fault BN and not the work of the author.

Never seen anything like this.

It was definitely a short funny story. It was an entertaining read for the most part. With a title like this, I feel like they should have dug even deeper. It has a classic fairytale ending and is most certainly an adult princess story that most women might dream of.

    Even for free not worth it

    This story essentially took a few fairy tales and replaced some of the words with 'penis'. I felt like I was reading a really lewd mad libs, and what the 'phantom phallus' was doing to the princess can qualify as sexual assault. All in all, unless you're into really immature humor not one I'd pick up.

    Too Weird for Words

    As anyone knows, a free book is just that. Sometimes you hit on something, but this book was too creepy for words. As a phantom Phallus attacks an annoying princess in her sleep, I can not get over the fact this was written in the guise of a childrens story. I love to read anything, but honestly this made me write my first review ever in the hopes no one else wastes thier time.

    Shame on you Barnes & Noble!!! This is DISGUSTING!!!

    Do underage Nook owners really need to see this? I'm 41 and have NO desire to see this trash. Time for a seperate section just for the free ADULT themed books, just like when you look for them in the non-free books??? I think it is. I'm so disappointed in B&N.
