Book Overview

The delicious and erotically charged sequel to The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, from the author of Beauty's Kingdom. This sequel to The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, the first of Anne Rice's (writing as A.N. Roquelaure) elegantly written volumes of erotica, continues her explicit, teasing exploration of the psychology of human desire. Now Beauty, having indulged in a secret and forbidden infatuation with the rebellious slave Prince Tristan, is sent...

Read this one.

I love Anne Rice and I think she is a top notch erotica author. Having said that, this sequel to the first, Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, is a joy to read. It's almost better than the first book, if that is possible. I really got into the story and didn't want it to end--good thing there's a sequel to this one! (Three books in total.) If you like bdsm fiction and hot erotica, do not overlook this one. It's a classic in every sense of the word. Another good bdsm erotica; Breaking the Girl and Eager to Please: Two Erotic Novels of Submission.

The Best of the Three

Yes, I truly do think that this book is the best of the three for numerous reasons. A lot of people reviewing this book have expressed that they were, shall we say, uncomforatble about the bi-sexuality in it. If they have read any of Rice's previous books, then what are they so shocked about? You know she is going to turn it all around, don't you? You know that she is going to make her characters experience everything in every way possible. Yet some people still squirm at that simple thought. All I can do is shake my head. I am a super-straight single female. But I am not afraid to admit that this books is pretty hot. Yes, some things could never happen that way in real life, but that is why it's FANTASY. The relationship that I found particularily touching is the one forming between Tristian and his new master. At first I really hated him for being so cruel to Tristian, but after a certain bedroom scene...I changed my mind. I mean, they are falling in love. A strange kind of love, but it really suckered me into it. The way they interact as master and slave works for them, cause they both love what they are doing. His master loves punishing him, and Tristian loves to suffer for his master. In the end, it's very sweet. Now, whenever Tristian got punished by his master, I got really turned on because I knew that it meant more. I recognized a lot of changes in Beauty as well. She really loves being punished now, doesn't she? In the first book she felt so humiliated and scared and unable to confirm to any commands, but now she understands pretty much everything, and she honeslty adores it! I mean, I would too, all under those beautiful men's attentions... All in all, this book was the best becuase it explained Tristian so well -- it was almost like I could see into his soul. And because of Beauty's changes. Those of you that wanted more reason and a sense of realism, do keep in mind that you are reading an EROTICA fantasy novel, so stop preaching morals as if you were a priest, and stop critiquing it like it's supposed to be an Emily Dickison poem. For what it is, Beauty's Punishment is turly a great achievement.

Great sequel!

Beauty's Punishment is the continuation of The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, Anne Rice's erotic retelling of the popular fairy tale. In the second installment, Beauty is punished for having rebelled against the Prince. She, along with Prince Tristan, an insubordinate slave and object of Beauty's desire, is auctioned, captivated and subjected to the most erotic, tantalizing and cruel games of domination and submission. Again, Anne Rice does an excellent job in illustrating the psychological implications of the human desire. She also does a splendid job in taking the course of the story to unexpected turns...There are various differences between The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty and its sequel. In Beauty's Punishment, the language is less fanciful and more explicit. Also, Prince Tristan is the focal character in this book -- thus, making Beauty seem as though she were a secondary character at times. And I noticed that the erotic scenes are far steamier this time. The changes are brilliant, for it makes the story meatier -- so to speak.I am duly impressed with Ms. Rice's ecstatic imagination and excellent prose. This is erotica at its literary best! I can't wait to know what happens to Beauty and Tristan in the conclusion of this (so far) memorable trilogy!

Oooh...OOOOhhhhh....OOOOOHHHHH my God!

If you're not sitting in a bath tub when you read this one, the sheets will get wet. I walked into this one without really reading the back of the book, and was I in for a surprise! I have let every woman that would possibly be into this read it and they agreed. I'm not kidding when I say you'll be very wet when done. And it gets better and better with each book. If you didn't like it, well, maybe you missed the point. Anne Rice writes other erotica too, check it all out! How does Price Charming wake Sleeping Beauty? By F**king her awake and it gets deeper after that.

This book is awesome & erotic!! It is one of my fav. books!

I didn't want to put this book down. I could stay up for hours promising my self just one more chapter, knowing that I had to be up early. I kept saying to myself....Okay; this is the last chapter. Just get to the end of it and go to bed! It's very erotic and has lots of suspense. It's one of those stories where you say, "Ohmigod! What's gonna happen now?" I am ordering the sequel now. I can't wait to get it and start reading. Ann Rice can take you to a different world if ya let her. It's amazing. I actually felt like I was with Beauty...if not her myself. I reccomend this book to anyone out there that likes an erotic novel. *****
