Reader's Thoughts


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.


A lot more of this story is told from the perspective of another slave, Prince Laurent, than Beauty's. Beauty's adventures are rather tame in comparison to Laurent's while they (Beauty, Tristan, Laurent, and a couple others) are kidnapped and held captive in the palace of an Arab sultan. Laurent manages to master one of the sultan's closest advisers, and in so doing become the most dynamic character and the hero of the piece. Fans of the trilogy will rejoice in the ending which promises Beauty's forever-after happiness, but those more squeamish about male on male sexual action will not be pleased with this volume. Personally, I thought it was an above average piece of erotica and mourn Rice's recent conversion to religion which almost guarantees she will not return to writing in this genre.


Copy received from Plume through NetGalleyWarning: this is a review of a work of erotica that should not be read by anyone under the age of 18 or easily offended. It also contains possible spoilers.This, the third and final part of Anne Rice’s Sleeping Beauty trilogy kicks off exactly where the second book, Beauty’s Punishment, ended. Beauty, Laurant, Tristan and three other slaves find themselves captive on a ship, bound for foreign lands and the court of an Eastern Sultan. While some things are exactly the same as they were when they were slaves at the Queens court – they have to obey orders and are subject to punishment both when they break the rules and when they don’t – other things are very different. The royal slaves are now in a position where they are being treated as little better than animals. Speaking, or even making loud sounds is strictly forbidden, which brings a new level of submission to their experience.Initially the new surroundings and rules scare and upset the captives, but it isn’t long until they realise that losing even the last little bit of their own will makes it easier for them to surrender to the experience of submission. And new surroundings allow Laurant and Beauty to discover new levels of erotic satisfaction. While Laurant indulges in a dangerous came with his master, Beauty spends time in the royal harem where her eyes are opened to shocking facts as well new forms of pleasure. When they are unexpectedly rescued from the foreign court Beauty, Laurant and Tristan find themselves strangely reluctant to return to the Queen’s lands. A return that will separate Beauty from everything she’s come to treasure while Tristan and Laurant will experience yet new ways of submissiveness. This is a fairy-tale yet we’ll have to wait until the very last lines on the very last page before we come to the familiar and expected ending:“And we shall live happily every after,” I said through my kisses, “as the fairy-tales say.”“Yes, happily every after”, she answered, “and a good deal happier, I think, than everyone else could ever guess.”In many ways this third book in the Sleeping Beauty series is more of the same; more captivity, more punishment, more sex and more unexpected and surprising revelations for Beauty, Laurant and other characters. Having said that, these books are more than a collection of erotic scenes; the characters grow, learn things about themselves and change as a result of what they experience. The learning experiences the royal slaves go through mean different things for the various characters. For some it means coming to the realisation that without submission they can’t be happy while others discover that they derive as much, if not more, pleasure from being in a dominant position then they do from submitting to others. Love is lost and rediscovered and role-reversal opens new and unexpected worlds; few characters end this trilogy in the same way they started it, but none resent their discoveries or the road that brought them there. Anne Rice is a wonderful author. She manages to make a trilogy that could easily have been boring due to repetitiveness into an intriguing study of (a form of) human sexuality. Her writing is fluent and while most of the narrative concerns itself with a variety of sexual exploits, she takes the time to explore the internal thoughts and feelings of her characters. I feel that in the hands of a lesser author this story could easily have turned into a sordid work of pornography (as I’m sure some people will view it anyway). For me though, Mrs. Rice managed to stay just about on the right side of decency thanks to the fact that the reader is never allowed to forget that (s)he is reading a fairy-tale and the detailed exploration of the character’s inner lives.I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: this is a work of erotica in its purest form. Nothing is cushioned or padded here, all descriptions are raw, descriptive and to the point. This is not a book for those who will allow a sex-scene in their stories provided it fits the story-line. In this trilogy sex is the story as it causes the development of characters. In short this is not a work of fiction with (some) erotic scenes. No, these are three books of pure and at times hard-core erotica. Or, as the author herself said on Facebook:“I believe in erotica, and the freedom of men and women to enjoy their S&M sexual fantasies. I realize the Beauty Trilogy shocks some people. That’s because it is extreme, excessive and true erotica, and I understand. Not for everyone. But for those who share the fantasy.”

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.


WARNING FOLKS: This is ADULT BDSM SEXUAL fantasy and could be shocking to those not familiar with the genre or lifestyle. It's not the best writing in the world, either. Only pick this series up if you are looking for some unique BDSM smut! Anne Rice fans beware... this is not her usual fare! It'd be a interesting project for someone (not me) to note exactly how many times Beauty gets spanked in this and the rest of the series! And she's not the only one! Naughty, naughty, naughty... whack, whack, whack... (can you say repetitive?)


The best in the series by far, simply because of the wonderful pov changes throughout. I started to lose interest in the first installment due to Beauty's insufferable tears that fell on every page. Thank you, Anne Rice, for letting the other characters narrate for awhile. In my opinion, this series turned out to be rather good for porn on paper. I hate to admit it, but oddly enough, my own tears hit the pages when Beauty was released. Predictable ending, but fairy tales are supposed to be predictable. I loved it, leather phalluses & all.


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! ;)


** spoiler alert ** this book starts off all hot and interesting... taking the captives to another country to be sex slaves, and just when things are getting really good... everyone is rescued and she slaps a happy ending on to it. i think this is the worst thing about anne rice. she does this alot when she gets either bored or stuck... she'll just wrap it in a neat little package... brown paper of course, and then says "and they lived happily ever after". boo.

The female lead is a stupid twit, but the male characters are the ones that keep this book series going. I only wished that Laurent had been introduced sooner, for he truly is the most interesting out of this series that does lose steam quite quickly. Overall, I liked it for an easy read. I read it in about five hours while sick, methinks.

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, 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.

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!


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.


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 guess, in their own way, these three books really are like a fairy tale. Completely unreal. Amidst all the every day fetishistic debauchery, torture, gang rape, buggerization and constant whippings - it's the lifestyle - there is something missing. Blood. Snot. Fecal matter. A break for menstrual cycles. It is all so very clean. I mean, even going back to the very first book, where Beauty is rudely awakened by the priapic Prince - lets face it, she's been asleep for 100 years, surely she should be lying in a pool of dried and drying menstrual blood, amongst other bodily waste matter!? And the weather. There isn't any! It's obviously a constant balmy temperature with no precipitation of any kind, which is lucky for the slaves who are naked. Permanently. I guess it would be inconvenient if any of them caught a cold, because then snot would definitely get involved. Oh yes, it's a fairy tale. It doesn't have to make sense.In this last installment of The Sex Slave Adventures of Sleeping Beauty, Beauty is kidnapped by some passing Arabs along with a few other choice love slaves and spirited off over the sea to wallow in a whole new level of debasement and animalisation. It is interesting to note that for the first time in the entire series, the word rape is used with regularity. It's not like it didn't happen before, but it is the first time it is described as such. Of course the slaves enjoy and even crave it so it doesn't matter much to them how it is defined. Lucky for Beauty she is in a constant state of sexual agitation, everything is a turn on. Nipple clamps? No problem. Whipping? Bring it on. Dildos up every orifice, even while horseriding? No sweat.I have to admit, this series was kind of fun and easy to read, and even somewhat titillating, but beware to those with more refined tastes, you will be shocked.
