Good book! The entire Beauty series is great. They are an easy read. Out of all three books, I liked this one the least, though, as it had very little to do with Beauty. I thought the series was good, but the author ended it rather poorly...as if she was done writing about this subject and just wanted it to end.

However, if you've read the other 2 books, you need to finish the series with this one to see how things turn out.

Odd ending.

Enjoy!

By far the best of the three books and a satisfying conclusion. Still twisted, still very, very graphic, but also enlightening -- the characters provide an inside view of what the BDSM world is all about. As usual with this series, conservatives and those easily offended might want to pass on this one.

This is a great addition to the Sleeping Beauty series. Anne Rice continues to amaze!

Warning: this book contains extremely explicit sex, both hetersexual and homosexual. Not as good as the first two books, but worth reading to see how everything ends up...

Sexy, Hot, Erotic, Kinky and Fantastic! If you are curious and made it through the first two there is a bit of a fairytale ending to this kinky little fantasy. Not for the easily offended, but for the sexually open and daring mind.

This series was like "You have to read the second since you read the first to see what happens next". Almost like a train wreck, you have to watch and see. This author has done her research.

Who knew Anne Rice could write a book like this, well let me tell you, this book is the final installation in the Sleeping Beauty trilogy. Its just as erotic as the first two, but not as exciting as the first book

In this third and final book in the Sleeping Beauty Series, Rice takes you along with Princess Beauty after she is kidnapped once more to be forced into more sexual servitude. We see that even in this new and strange environment Beauty struggles between her willingness to please and her desire to revolt. But in the midst of all of her inner turmoil, she finds a plight more needing of her attention. Beautifully well written with careful detail shown to the acts being carried out, without being lurid or vulgar. In this book the B/D relationship is overshadowed by something greater. A must read ending to a fantastic trilogy. Rice does a beautiful job of rewriting a classic fairy tale for adult readers wishing to tackle their own inhibitions.

The issue of Beauty's menstrual cycle arose in a review of book 2, to which I say this - suspension of disbelief. It is, after all, fantasy.

Not for the faint of heart or anyone not comfortable with their own sexuality or desires. Strongly suggested to read the books in their correct order.

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.

This is the third book of the story of Beauty. I liked the first two better.

If you haven't read the first two in this series, I highly recommend you do so before reading this one, otherwise, you're going to be a bit lost. That being said, this entire series is a fun sexually perverse fantasy read. Book three is no doubt the darkest of the three books, but highly entertaining.

So I've finally finished all 3 of the Sleeping Beauty trilogy, and all I can say is wow! Anne Rice goes beyond erotic and goes into messed up and perverse, and they're one of those things that you either love or you hate. Leaves you a bit speechless!

I didn't find this book as good as the first two.

I found this book to be truly evocative and well written, without being trashy. The only thing I could find fault with would be that there is no way Beauty could continually perform for her masters/mistresses; I mean after all she's a very young woman and as we all know young women have certain issues once a month. But after reading the first two books of the trilogy and in the middle of the third, I do not see this problem being addressed. I know many romance writers do not address this problem, but with this type of book, I do not see how the writer could not address what her masters/mistresses demanded of her during that time of the month. I still love the book, and would recomend the entire series to anyone who has a taste for such and erotic book. I also recomend reading the trilogy in the correct order, for all of Beauty's experiences to be fully experienced.

Erotic and odd but good reading if you like this sort of thing. ;) Also, this is not a paperback but is a hardcover. However, that wasn't an option when listing this.

from the back cover:
In the final volume of Ann Rice's deliciously tantalizing erotic triology, Beauty's adventures on the dark side of sexuality make her the bound captive of an Eastern Sultan and a prisoner in the exotic confines of the harem. As this voluptious adult fairy tale moves toward conclusion, all Beauty's encounters with the myriad variations of sexual fantasy are presented in a sensuous, rich prose that intensifies this exquisite rendition of love's secret world, and makes the Beauty series an incomparable study of erotica. In it, Anne Rice makes the forbidden side of passion a doorway into the hidden regions of the psyche and the heart.

Third book in trilogy. The conclusion of the Erotic Adventures of Sleeping Beauty.

I did not read these, but bought 1 & 3 from thrift store with intent to. Glancing thru them, I found them too erotic and violent for my taste.
