An exploration into the darker side of sexuality... This is an excellent book series, if this is what you are into, written by Anne Rice, . It is a retelling of the Sleeping Beauty story, very loosely based on the fairy tale you know from childhood. Instead of being awakened by a kiss, she is awakened when the prince claims her virginity. From here she is forced into a sexual slavery, a tribute required of a more powerful kingdom. At its heart, this is a non-consentual BDSM series, although it can be enjoyed if one remembers that it is only a novel about such touchy topics. As the novels move forward, Beauty finds that she is not completely against what is happening to her.

First Book: Fun and novel read. Interesting background and lots of creative naughty bits for fun.Second book: Lost steam. She lost most of the background and plot and even though there was a variety of positions and objects -- she recycled quite a bit of the sex scenes.Third book: I've NEVER read an erotica book that I considered flat out BORING until I read this book. I skipped what little bit of the plot was there. I believe she used MAD LIBS to write out the sex scenes. They seemed idetical except for which piece of fruit was inserted where. I've been more stimulated reading the phone book.

This is for sure not a normal version of sleeping beauty!! I can not even finish the first book as the book is making me mad and disgusted all at the same time!

This book was beautiful. It was ugly, but it had a haunting sense of realism. They were the best books that I had read in a long time. They helped me to explore the dark side of love, the side that ties in with the pain of love, and wanting to be loved. All in all, they were beautifully written, and I give my love to Anne Rice.
