"A highly disappointing read"
This story tells the tale of a fantasy battle between good
and evil, manifesting itself in this book as a battle
between light and dark, the Sun and the Moon.
A world of another time and place has been the spoils of
war between Sun and Moon for as long as anyone can
remember. No one remembers anymore a time long past when
the Sun ruled the land, providing light and happiness to
all living creatures and plants. The Moon has dominated
with fear and pain but it is slowly losing strength. The
Sun is once again growing strong and coming to defeat the
Moon in their infinite battle. The Moon Lord knows he must
find the strength to defeat the sun, and tries to build
that power by feeding on the sexual energies of his people
and himself. But will he succeed or will the kind and good
Sun win the war once and for all?
This reviewer did not like this book at all, for many
reasons, and had a hard time finishing it, even as short as
it was. The progression of the story, what little there is,
is very choppy, jumping around a lot, and doesn't flow well
at all. The book is only about 20 pages but there are at
least three different storylines going at once which made
it very hard to follow. Also, this story is nothing but
sex, sex, and more sex, with a feeble attempt at a
storyline being thrown in to make that necessary.
Unfortunately, the story, which is a good premise and could
have made for a good book, is overwhelmed by the purely
gratuitous sex and an overuse of crude anatomical
references. Granted, this book is an erotica story, so sex
is key in this genre, but this short story is more
pornographic then anything. This reviewer got no sense of
emotion from any character, save one that showed a glimmer
of feeling, and none of the couples in any storyline showed
any depth to their relationships beyond lust. Sadly, the
most emotion gotten out of the plotline in the book was
that of a young boy for his puppy, who only shows up in the
last few pages.
So, if a reader wants a book that is nothing but lust and
sex and orgies, then this is the book to read. If one wants
any semblance of a plot, skip this one unless looking to be
