5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding New Work! 8 Sep 2008
By MLK - Published on Amazon.com
I found this to be a very engaging, entertaining book. I was hard pressed to put it down. The story line is very unique. It flows smoothly from character to character, maintaining continuity and cohesiveness. The characters are well-rounded, very human. Even the really bad characters had moments when I felt a bit of compassion for them. I also appreciated the way sexuality is represented. There is no shame, no apology made for people engaging in what we deem the "alternate sexualities." It is all completely natural and unforced and therefore, beautiful. This is a very satisfying read. I hope that there will be many sequels. I am looking forward to reading Darkstar's next work.
5.0 out of 5 stars mortal shortcomings by darkstar 3 Dec 2008

I found the entire book from the first page to the last page, mesmorizing. I was immediately hooked on the characters. The book is well written and tastefully done, in all aspects. Especially considering the time in history, when decadence, oppression and sexuality was shocking, to say the least. I am giving it as a gift to a good friend and have no fear that she will enjoy it as much as I did. I can't wait for the sequel.
