This is total erotica, but well-written erotica. ;) I really didn't like the first of this series much (Claiming of Sleeping Beauty). I read it only because of the hype and wasn't that impressed. If not for PBS, I probably wouldn't have tried the second book. But I liked this one so much more, the characters are more realized. There is a better insight to their feelings and reasonings. Not just a description of strange actions, which is how I remember the first book. I prefer Tristan to Beauty's character for some reason, but she has become a lot more interesting. This is a strange fictional world they are living in, and it's full of surprises. It's a good, quick read. Be warned: No one is kidding. There really is lots of sex and kink in this book, so if that's going to be an issue, this isn't the series for you.

BDSM without much heart. Beauty suffers indignities without much personal insight. Tristan lends some relief in that he is at least self-aware. Leaves them both as captured slaves of the Sultan - seems a better place than the Village. Male and female readers improve the presentation.

I read this series because I heard it was the "original" 50 Shades of Gray, and I like Ann Rice's vampire books. I must say this is nothing like 50 Shades of Gray. There is no love story to carry you through the books, and no real redemption. I don't understand what Rice was trying to convey with this version of a BDSM story but it isn't anything that I enjoyed. The only redeeming factor is that Beauty ends up with a happy ending.

After reading the first book in the series I was not shocked by the erotic tone of the book. A bit repetative in its erotic value but good enough character development to make me want to read the next book.
