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.

Helpful Score: 4
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.

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
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.
