    The Chronicles of MC Pwn E Part I Chapter I

    It was dark. Incredibly dark, to the point of total darkness. Of course, all is dark if your eyes are closed. Except mine were opening for the first time. Or were they? It's more like I opened my eyes for the first time in this form. Or perhaps I wasn't opening my eyes at all, and instead simply felt light shining into me, a symbol of my second life's dramatic awakening. Except I didn't have time for dramatic awakenings. Those would have to wait. I adjusted to the light, got up, and got to work. There was too much to do for me to sit and open my eyes. I grabbed my music and, thankful that I had the same synthesizer that I did in Dimension 2014, continued my work. Time had passed, and I noticed a mirror in the back corner of the studio I had respawned in (which I presumed was mine), and, figuring that no harm would come from seeing my new form, wandered over to view my reflection. I was surprised to see that I looked about two years older than I was. When I checked a calendar above the mirror, my guess was confirmed; the date read "February 2016A23". As I began pacing the room, I heard a knock at the door. A visitor! I was hardly even ready to be here myself, let alone company! But before I coul answer the door, it swung open, revealing two white ponies, one a stallion, the other a mare, and both about th age of my former self. "And who might you be?" I asked. "Beats," said the stallion, "and this is Crooked Stick."

    Good fantasy reading.

    Continuum was good fantasy reading for me. I liked the plot of bored woman who takes risks. It was sexy and sometimes thrilling.

    Disappointed

    I put this one down after about 40 pages. All I was reading was sex. Weak plot and characters were only about sex. I normally enjoy reading erotic romances but this one just didn't seem like a story. It seemed like the author was trying to write sex with poor to no real connection to anything. Don't waste money on this one.

    interesting erotic tale

    Joanna Darrell is bored with her office job at Perry McAfree, but that is no excuse for breaking the company¿s number one rule to treat the client sweetly she just failed having called the Vale Associates representative a ¿sad bastard¿ before slamming the phone down. As she waits for her boss Halloran to rip her apart and probably fire her, she fantasizes about having this hunk service her as his aristocratic apocalyptic reputation with women is legendary. Freelance computer specialist Kevin Steel notices her ecstatic expression that he has once before placed on her face when they made love, but since that ecstatic interlude she has said no to his advances. Instead of sacking her, Halloran and the Human Resources Chief Davidson tell her she needs a vacation as she has worked too hard. They send Joanna to Whiteoaks, a place with the latest relaxation therapies. Joanna soon finds the place caters to her deepest erotic fantasies where pleasure and pain are part of the same CONTINUUM while several studs provide major appetizers but only a steely hunk can be her master. --- Joanna is an interesting protagonist who as the back cover of the book states becomes ¿Alice in a decadent wonderland¿. She keeps the erotic tale focused as it runs the gamut of bondage. With the exception of Kevin, the hunks are interchangeable though the protagonist can tell them apart by a look or feel of their one-eyed dripping plunger. Sub-genre fans will enjoy this heated erotic romance as Joanna takes quite a torrid vacation. --- Harriet Klausner
