This book was previously released back in June 2009 under a Pseudonym of Sylvia Day's - Livia Dare. It's since been re-released in the US on the 24th September 2013 and in the UK.
If you are a regular reader of Sylvia Day you will know what to expect in terms of the sexual content of this book. Like all Sylvia Day books, In The Flesh is HOT! Incredibly sensual, explicit, evocative and utterly addictive.
It is set in a futuristic world in which sex for nothing more than pleasure seems to be a core belief of society.
Concubines are highly thought of and valued and undergo years of training before taking up their positions.
Both sexes can serve and throughout the course of their careers they can achieve great wealth and position in society.
What I struggled with in this world was the fact that rich, powerful men had a harem of women and their wives were basically expected to just deal with it.
The King of Sari is in love with his prized concubine Sapphire and refuses anyone elses bed but hers - including his poor wifes!
Sapphire doesn't reciprocate the Kings feelings, feels sorry for the Queen and basically craves more from her life. She is more than happy when the Queen of Sari - to cut a long story short - has her retired.
Retirement in the life of a concubine - at least a successful one like Sapphire - means wealth, independence - freedom.
Sapphire is a very strong woman. She is loyal to those she cares about and feels an instant affinity for Wulf which she doesn't want to feel on account of him being an enemy prince, thus making anything between them impossible without one - or both - of them losing everything.
Wulfric is commanding, ruthless, slightly arrogant, highly intelligent and sexy as hell!
He knows what he wants and he wants Sapphire.
He is conscious of the possible consequences of pursuing Sapphire but he sets about finding work-arounds so that he can have her.
He lets nothing stand in his way and is the driving force in everything that happens between them.
There is plenty of action to go along with the sex 'n' romance.
Lot's of nice twists and turns. Plenty of intrigue.
Overall it is a really enjoyable read.
My only complaint is that the ending leaves loose ends hanging and I'd expect another book to round them off but considering it was originally published years ago it doesn't look likely to happen... Or maybe the fact it has been republished under Sylvia Day means another book will be forthcoming? I guess we'll have to wait and see, but I'll be disappointed if there is not.
I guess to sum it up I'd say that it doesn't steal your soul the way the Crossfire books do but it is definitely on par with Day's regency works, so I definitely recommend!
4 out of 5 stars
I also find the interview with Waters in the inner booklet just too sad for words, he can't even bring himself to use the name Pink Floyd, he simply refers to them as 'another band'. As for when he tells us that the band and him would join hands before these gigs and shout 'Genuine Love', please give me the good old hate ridden days of The Wall any time.
Only for the most hardened of Floyd fans.
This album contains tracks from - Phoenix - Las Vagas - Irvine & Portland with top performances from the very talented musicians that accompanied him on the tours - Guitarist Snowy White real name Terence Charles - Bass Guitar Andy Fairweather low - Guitarist Doyle Bramhall II - Graham Broad who was one of the most prolific drummers of the 1980's - Keyboardist & producer Jon Carin - Keyboardist Andy Wallace - Also on tour was top backing vocalists P.P.Arnold & Katie Kissoon.....
Probably helped by the long tour this is a very polished Live album from Roger Waters & friends......
This CD is a terrific re-working of one of the best tours of the past decade and allows Waters - undoubtedly one of the finest songwriters and under-rated musical talents in our history - to firmly retake the mantle of Pink Floyd. Anyone who has ever listened to the lacklustre overworked live releases of Pink Floyd since Waters left the band should be stunned to submissive silence by the glistening sheen James Guthrie has placed on an already proud, powerful and awe-inspiring performance.
From the opening moment of the CD to the closing track you will be held in place by the power and clarity of song writing. Overtaken with the individual performaces of the band - but left in no dount that this is a coming together of some of the finest talents in music today (notably Doyle Bramhall and Jon Carin) this is as fine an introduction to Roger Waters (or re-introduction to what Pink Floyd should be about) as you will find.
Are you listening David Gilmour?? It's time you did. The shows over Dave - time to take off the uniform and go home.
Welcome back Roger, maybe now we can realise exactly how much we wished you were here.
