Reader's Thoughts


TWO AND A HALF STARSIn my personal opinion I think that 'Beauty's Release' (the third and final book in the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy) was the weakest in the series. I expected to read more about Beauty but instead I felt that she was hardly mentioned in the third book, it was mainly focused on Laurent and Tristan. The story got a bit boring for me and predictable and I felt the ending was a bit rushed (needed less filler throughout and more effort for the ending). What made me like this book was the development of the Characters, I would say Beauty's change surprised me the most. Overall, this book was OK, but a part of me is glad that this series is over.


1. New characters are introduced here and certain chapters are written from these characters' point of views. I don't understand WHY. Isn't Beauty supposed to be the main character here? Isn't this HER story?2. I can't even begin to say how terrified I was reading this book, with respect to the BDSM mentioned here. I probably won't be reading books of this genre for some time, lest I am reminded of this trilogy.3. Not sure if I'd like to try reading Anne Rice's vampire novels but I'm never touching her erotica books ever.


** spoiler alert ** Review of the first book.Review of the second book.WARNING: Disturbing stuff ahead.And here is where we hit the rock bottom.As in, mass nonconsensual permanent genital mutilation.I know there are some people out there that like it, but I daresay it's one kink that doesn't need pandering to. Otherwise we might just as well have Gilles de Rais erotica.Or was it not supposed to be a kink?It's at this point where I started to wonder if Beauty series were supposed to be erotica in modern narrow sense of the word - titillating - or just an exploration of extreme? It doesn't work well in either capacity. I daresay pacing problems and digressions would pose a problem even to people who enjoy the subject matter. Maybe even overload - there is always something sex-related going on. If it's meant to be an exploration of controversial matters - it fails to include any liquids or soft solids. (Not a fan of those, either, but as long as they are among consenting adults, I'm cool.)It could be that this is meant to present their current captors - Turks - as evil. Unlike their kind noble masters from book one. I daresay that when put like that, it seems like horrors of book second might have been staged to show princes and princesses were better off as slaves to the nobility than roaming around. It makes even more sense given the ending.Consequently, this is probably the least sexy of books, since the author now has to wrap up the plot somehow.So, how does it end? We had one prominent "prince" in book one - he was ignored in book two. We had another in book two - and he is ignored here. Both of them, particularly the first one, were the only characters in their respective books that showed discontent with the whole concept. But neither of them is the one. Beauty, instead, gets raped (and I don't even mean technically as part of the games or orders - he comes to her on his own volition, no spectators, and the way the scene was written, she doesn't seem willing at all) by a newcomer. (He is not content with his situation either, but that's because he prefers to be the aggressor.) Then Beauty gets released back to her kingdom. But she is dissatisfied with her suitors because none can give her what she wants. She even starts torturing some as the test, but finds them wanting. Then, aforementioned rapist gets released early - unwillingly - because his father is dead and he is the only heir. He is grumpy because he cannot harrass any more newbie princes. But then he hears his old acquaintance is available. So he comes in to sweep her off her feet, put some genital clamps on her and ride off into sunset. They lived abusively ever after, and author gave up on any pretense of moral dilemma and kissed it goodbye, then swatted it with a carved jewel-encrusted paddle a few times for a good measure.


Stockholm syndrome. That's what all these "slaves" have. It's the only explanation for why they don't want to leave their captivity. Or else Anne Rice is just f'ed up. There is so much wrong with these books I really don't know why I read them all. I have the same problems as many other reviewers had, that everything is so clean, where are the body fluids? I'm not sure how much anal probing people can be put through without some damage going on. Also apparently they have built in birth control and STD control, or I guess it's a fairy tale and disease doesn't exist because I can't imagine this society isn't rife with gonorrhea and syphilis. It's also interesting (or not) that they kept getting warned that the village is terrible then the Sultanate was even worse when they kept getting treated at least slightly better.This installment also inexplicably tells us Laurent's story mostly and almost ignores Beauty. This could have been a whole new series. Also someone should tell Rice that ponies get treated better than her human "ponies" do. So I do get BDSM but I've always understood it to be consensual nothing in this series is consensual which is why it wasn't very erotic at all. Rape isn't erotic and in this book unlike the others they are all of a sudden "raped" especially in the Arabic land, which kind of bordered on racist. I hate to tell her that all of these sexual encounters were raped which brings us back to my original statement. Stockholm syndrome. Rubbish.


"Beauty's Release is the final book in the Erotic Triology of Sleeping Beauty and I thought it was such a pleasant change of pace and direction for the entire series and when I write that, I mean more of a change of pace and direction than that from book one to two. The new setting gave more opportunity for newer endeavors for the story and I was hoping for a specific kind of delivery since this is the last book in the trilogy. What I got was something a little different from my hopes but it still delivered for what the novel was.The biggest thing I noticed about this novel was the change in punishment from the pride-breaking and humiliating to the more emotional and sensual. The punishments seemed more of a personal level in this book and not to mention a bit more exotic just by the setting and how they are delivered. I say they are more exotic much to the character placement and setting but I also say more personal for each master is suffering a punishment just as much as the slave themselves and it is most noted with the relationship between Beauty and Inanna as well as the relationship between Laurent and Lexius.Just like the other two books prior, I only would suggest this book underneath two conditions. The first condition is if the other two books have been read in series for a lot of the story may not make sense if the first two books aren't read especially the events that led to said events happening in the new land as well as the ending and two, if you have the stomach or should I say the understanding, open-mind, or tolerance to read an erotic novel which I think this book can qualify as written pornography. All in all, for the genre this novel is in and what it is, I found the novel entertaining to read and I even finished reading this novel at work."


WARNING - ADULT CONTENTSo, if you got this far into the series, you know that nothing is sacred. Men with men, women with men, women with women and sometimes several at a time. This is the final book in a trilogy penned by Anne Rice (A. N. Roquelaure).All of them are very well written for what they are - Erotica. Some are getting hung up on the literary worth, but if you are in the market for this type of book... you can't really go wrong with this series. After Beauty is awakened by the Prince, she is taken to his kingdom for an education of sorts in BDSM. Something that seems to be a rite of passage for nobility. After some rebellion, her punishment is to be sent to the village where the education is not in as comfortable a setting. In this final book, Beauty is actually taken prisoner by a Sultan and confined to his Harem.These books are a version of the BDSM world. Master and slave, punishment and reward. The ultimate reward to these characters comes in learning how not to lead an ordinary, mundane life. The ending is sweet while still remaining true to the kink factor.Leave your inhibitions at the door and these books might just surprise you.If you like the world of the Sultan, there is another book I would recommend - "The Seraglio." It is a look at life in the harems of Turkey(?) It is not sexually explicit, but it is an interesting read. Additionally, if the sexual concepts here appeal to you - check out the movie "Secretary" with James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhall.

This sleeping beauty trilogy is the porniest book I have ever read, it is so porny it transcends its form as a book and breaks through into being a porn movie. All your categories of porn are here: straight, bi, lez, gay, threesome, foursome, orgy, s and m. This book involves so much leather and phallic shaped fruits its funny, accounting for the two stars. And don't anyone tell me I just didn't get it--this book has no literary merit no matter what anyone says.

This is the third book in the trilogy, and I suggest saving it for last so that you know the history. If you've read the other two, then obviously you're not bothered by literature containing fantasy sexual violence, various BDSM and the like. Again, as with all three of the books, the spankings get monotonous, but there are less scenes of those in this book than in the prior two. This book has yet another change in locale as Beauty and a few others are kidnapped from the village and taken to an Arabian kingdom. By the end of the book, all of the primary characters have some sort of closure, and the loosest ends are nicely concluded.

Well Well...I finally finished this series after waiting forever for it in the mail. Loved the first book, really loved the second book and now I'm back to just loving. This book wasn't as good as the second. I truly enjoyed the singling out of Tristan in the second book and I admit I became attached to him and his gentle and frail personality. I was broken hearted when he had to leave Nicholas. Now in this third book, we are taken away from Tristans thoughts and brought into Laurent's thoughts. Laurent is extremely interesting, but he is also mean and controlling. He put Tristan in the background and that upset me as a reader. As far as the story line goes I did love it. I love the way the slaves were treated at the sultan's palace, the way they were nothing more than animals. I found Lexius to be a weak character only added for Laurents amusement. I thought at the beginning he would be the love for beauty, but nothing ever came of it. Beauty finds love in Inanna and that was fine, but it was so brief. I enjoyed the end, only because the two of them fit so well. Beauty needed a master and Laurent simply needed a slave. Somehow an erotically scary love comes out of that. Not matter what most say, I'm a fan of these books, and I'm glad I've read them!


Well, I have the invention of the subtle ebook reader to thank for completing this trilogy, as there's no way I'd have sat on the train at peak commuting hours reading the hard copies! ;-)There are two sides to the trilogy: Anne Rice writes the one that is an erotic journey of self discovery, but you can't shake the other one from the back of your mind, that being the abduction, rape and abuse of young men and women who develop Stockholm syndrome then return to their lives sociopathic sex offenders unable to cope with the real world. The latter is a more realistic take I think but I'd rather have gouged my own eyes out than read it. I can't help wondering if she watched Pasolini's 'Salo' and enjoyed it.Don't get me wrong though, I think it's a very good trilogy(!), and with some convenient mental glossing over it is eye-opening and educational, allowing the reader to explore and reflect upon sides of human nature that are only truly exposed under extreme circumstances, from the comfort of a train carriage.


I would still say this: this is one of the best smut I've read in my life, and I hope nothing could change that.I really loved this series but this last one is such a let-down.I was hoping they would stay in the Sultan's Kingdom. Laurent would pursue his dream to become a Master to Lexius, and Beauty being the sweet submissive that she is. the Sultan's world is really elegant, and even though they had experienced more pain here, they thoroughly enjoyed it. (I wouldn't call it "pain" if Laurent is having fun, at all.)the punishments here are more humiliating than from the Queen's Village (Laurent was repeatedly violated in the mouth and in the rear in the garden. probs at least 5 at his mouth and 5 at his ass. *goosebumps*) and the women in the harem have mutilated genitals, and the way Beauty was bounded without covering her breasts and her womanhood in that hall. TOO MUCH.I also hate that Beauty, who wanted to go home since the start of the story, didn't WANT to go back. I get it, she loved her life as a slave, but I was hoping that she didn't want to leave because of the Captain or Laurent. she didn't want to leave because she'll be wearing clothes again, after months of being naked. (I still wonder why the salves never got sick, tbh. I would if I was naked all the time.)but the best part is Laurent mastering both Lexius and Tristan. that was such a wonderful moment that I'd love to see Laurent master Prince, or maybe even the Queen! he'd definitely make a wonderful Master, I just know it.Oh, and I was hoping for more Laurent/Beauty scenes so I would understand their love story (it was more of Beauty having a girlish crush on Laurent, and Laurent having baser needs.). I'm glad that they married, anyway! Laurent pursuing his dreams as a Master, and Beauty being his private slave. :)Over-all, wonderful book, but I still like the 2nd book better! I hope there are other erotica!fairy tales around. if you know some, please let me know! ;)


This was probably my least favorite of the 3 books, though probably the hottest. I found my mind wandering at the "sameness": punishment, confusion, fear, acceptance. I didn't feel liked I gained anything new here, but still enjoyed this final book. Again we see differing pov and not really as much of Beauty as we did in the past. The slaves go on a whole new adventure here, and discover many interesting aspects of their characters they never knew before.At first I was frustrated with the indecision, the seemingly strong affection for one person that is immediately replaced by another. But emotions here are not quite as clear to define in a slave/Master relationship. There are many rules and certain protocols that cannot be ignored. It isn't until the end that Beauty finds the loving Master she so longs for.Again there is a mixture of fascination and sadness when I think of submission. One I intend to continue to explore to get a better understanding. This series gave me a lot to think about.


I am finally done with this series!!This was by far one of the most painful reading experiences I've ever had. As if getting taking from the castle and sold at a slave auction in the "village" wasn't enough, why not add kidnapping by a Sultan? Sure...sounds legit. Oh, and every two seconds someone was in love with someone else. It was just the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. There was no character growth, hell, there was hardly a plot. I felt nothing for any of these characters. I literally just didn't care for them. There were parts I just skimmed because there's only so many spankings and phallus impalements that I can take. Not to mention taking what was one person's journey and turning into a multiple character story. Guess she realized Beauty just wasn't interesting enough. Problem was, neither were Tristan and Laurent.And for the love of a higher power, don't switch from 1st person to 3rd person. It's unnecessary and takes the reader out of the story (not that there was much of one here).I get that a lot of people like this series, and more power to them. This just wasn't for me.


This book was better than the first two. The first one had an intriguing premise, the second one was hard for me to finish but this one went by fast. It is the first time you see a reversal in the characters. Some of them are no longer trying to find a way to rebel against being slaves or developping coping mechanisms and that's refreshing. It stops the monotony of the endless palace/village/palace punishments.


A fitting end to this High-Fantasy erotic series complete with HEA for all the characters we’ve come to love. "Yes," I thought, “Do it harder. Whip me soundly for what I have done. Let the blaze of pain grow brighter, hotter.” But it was not coherent, what I thought. It was like a song in my head, made up of rhythms – The strap, my cries, the creak of the wood… I actually enjoyed this much more than the other two books which preceded it. I was particularly pleased with the way that the Sultan’s castle was described, as well as all the luscious debauchery contained within.A Note on this Series:I’ll not go so far as to pretend that these books represent some sort of hallmark for the genre (or of the D/s Lifestyle in general), but they are a journey worth taking if you have the metaphorical balls for it. I’m not even going to try and pretend that I don’t wield these books as a weapon against those who are ignorant enough about the D/s Lifestyle to call Fifty Shades of Grey and its fuzzy handcuff contemporaries BDSM… Not that those books aren’t entertaining for what they are (Modern Romance with a slightly erotic, slightly kinky kick)… But let’s endeavor to call a spade a spade, people… Before someone gets their feelings hurt…These books are completely over-the-top graphically sexual & and descriptive to the point of making the reader squirm… However, I find the psychology of the submissive much more accurate in Anne Rice’s fantasy land than it is often portrayed in the soft-core BDSM-light Erotic Romances which come across my path more frequently. “…I felt as I always did at the core of punishment: The coming of a tranquility, a quiet place in the very center of frenzy, in which I could surrender all the parts of my being.”
