5.0 out of 5 stars More stunning erotic art from Royo 7 Feb 2006
Compared to the first book in the Prohibited series, this one is perhaps a little more hardcore, a little more fantastical -- less focussed on lingerie and romance, more on cyborgs and kink. There are delicately explicit depictions of a beauty-and-the-beast type situation, and plenty of chains, piercings, and bar-coded flesh. Having said that, the overall feeling remains one of feminine grace, of subtlety and beauty, rather than of in-your-face raunch.
All in all, it's hard to see how anyone who enjoys classy, somewhat risque art could fail to be captivated. It's worth noting that the copy I received from Amazon included three postcards of images from the book, which made a nice bonus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!! 14 Feb 2003
An incredible book that contains lots of amazing drawings. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Sci-Fi / Fantasy artwork of women. This book has been of great help and inspiration for my own drawings. I have since ordered more books by this author, and I can rest assured I won't be disappointed!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Nights that need to be Satiated 7 Oct 2011
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Another dark feast from the depths of Luis Royo as he lets his mind wander down those stone steps lit with braziers until you see those dungeons as this brings the beast, rippling and brimmng with pent up sexual fury to gorge on the gothic uber femme. These demons surge with the electric passions of sleaze as they gorge on the sexual frenzy of beautiful women. Whilst Robert Howards Conan brings out the Dragon in the Dungeon, this beats its presence into another more sophisticated world.

Royo has captured the static magic of an eternal darkness, the electric allure of pure lust, as it zips, then pings through the air to create the frission of wanton abandonment. You can either stare at the picture as wallpaper, or recreate the sites within the synapses, or use them within those special times. These are aides for memory to spark the imagination that trips those internal switches.

Reminds me of a Turkish restaurant in West London, covered in satyrs and nymphs being cloven then gushing with the waters of frission, trapped in various straits of frenzy. This book is one of a series that captures this labyrinth of sexual power, beating at the gates of Hades, wanting to ease its way in. A swift glance into the black eyes of dead end pools creates another imagine of beautified ecstasy. Luis scatters an invite to push, enter the tip and harness all the energy you can muster, to make that grand sweeping entrance that always lies within.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not at all what I expected 8 Jun 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Although I am very much a fan of Royo's work, I was very dissapointed with this book. I guess it's my own fault for not reading enough about it before buying. I loved the cover illustration, but sadly, the contents were not as good. Most of the illustrations in this book are black and white, or nearly monochramatic, and small. The text I found had little to add to the illustrations. The pictures themselves start at tastefully erotic, but turn to very graphic sex acts by the end. Definitely not for kids, or the faint of heart. I found the most artfully rendered image to be the cover, and I didn't feel it was worth the money. If you're looking for a book of full color paintings of Royo's best erotic work, this is NOT the one to get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent art book for the seasoned Royo fan. 11 May 2002
By "angelles" - Published on Amazon.com
I gave this book 5 stars for many reasons. The main reason is that Royo does not bend his creative mind to sell books. He paints his passion regardless of what is currently "trendy" in the fantasy art realms. His style continues to season and I am always stunned to see the beauty that he captures in the sadness of his subjects. This book is not for everyone however. It contains strong sexual context that may not be suitable for all adults and certainly not to be left around for children to pick up. It IS a book that will be loved by fans of Royo, who have followed his work over the years and can appreciate the explicit nature of his artistic expression. If you are new to Royo, see some of his earlier work for less aggression, you won't be disappointed...then move back to Prohibited to see where this artist has traveled in his artistic minds eye. I have never been disappointed with a Royo release, and this is not an exception. Beautiful!

3.0 out of 5 stars Adults only 4 Jan 2002
By "morandir62" - Published on Amazon.com
A risque, coffee-table book this one is not. The pictures have a heavy adult sex act themes. Unlike most of his art books, this one is mainly small sketch style drawings done in black and white. The cover is no indication of the contents.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great work for Royo fans 2 Feb 2002
By B. J. L. Zumwalt - Published on Amazon.com
This work is not quite the 5 star review I gave, but it is worth more than simply 4 stars. The reason is that this is Royo art as Royo fans would like. The women are stunning and the contrasts between the people and the backgrounds is staggering. Many times, it is like looking into a post appocolyptic issue of Playboy (or, in many cases Penthouse). What keeps this book from being five stars is simply the aforementioned sexuality. Many images are sexually explicit, and of those that are not, they are sexual enough that it would be advisable to keep this book away from impressionably minds. This means that, for most people, this book will be hidden from public view instead of resting on a coffee table with the rest of Royo's art collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars another erotic masterpiece 29 Dec 2002
By John Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Luis did it again! He is hands-down the master in creating a fantasy realm in which the women are utterly flawless, yet not airbrushed centerfold types of the girl next door. There is a sort of luring eroticism in the darkness of his images, many of the women being pierced and tatooed, many whose eyes tell of a tormented past yet reveal inward strength and unparalled beauty. What is it about these women that lure cyborgs, monsters and demons to make love to them, and what is it about these creatures that the women can't resist? In a nutshell, Royo's worlds are an enticing escape from our reality--this latest work is no exception--you will in fact find it hard to escape his world and close the book once you have opened it.
