As many readers of erotica, especially those into the erotic side of power relationships will know, there have been many novels based on the subject; but few that have the emotional power and impact of Pauline Reage's "The Story Of O". Well, the Sisters Of Severcy is one book that fairly achieves that accolade. I found this book to contain all of the suspence, the erotic power and the journey into the pschye of Reage's work. Put simply, I loved it - there is plenty of the erotic, but with a mind behind it and that is a powerful combination. The story itself is quite sufficient to sustain the readers interest and serve as a medium for the painting of the characters and their interplay. The only drawback - I've been waiting for many years for the sequel that is crying out to be written!
