Felarya is the last place to start a healthy relationship. There are monsters that would love to eat humans behind every tree, under every rock, and in every body of water. Fortunately, any relationship between Crisis, the giant naga and a human being named Scarecrow probably isn't going to be healthy anyway. Especially since their doom is fast approaching. The first (or at least one of the first) full-length vore novels ever written, featuring the fantastic world of Karbo's design known as Felarya and all of his unforgettable characters, plus some new ones.

Oct 15, 2009"Enjoyable despite the flaws" When I first heard about the novel, it looked pretty interesting. One of the first full-length vore novels, according to the site, but also an adorable picture on the front cover. It doesn’t hurt that I have a fondness for nagas in general and highly fantastic worlds. And this book does have a very rich and interesting world. Creatures and monsters interact with almost a sense of ecology. They also view their respective positions in life as a fact, which helps enhance the tone of the novel. Crisis, one of the main characters, is as flighty and cheerful as she looks in the cover, bouncing from one emotional state to the other. She is playful and serious in all the right places, not bemoaning her vorish nature but enjoying it. Scarecrow, the other title character, is very well described but less in a physical sense. Instead, the writer shows his internal state, which fits well with the humor of the novel and also to act as plot exposition since... More > he isn’t from the “normal” world of the story. For a novel claiming to be vore, it is relatively light on the eating. In many ways, I would consider it to be almost soft core vore. Not a lot of details of the actual act, just a few teasing descriptions made as if they were the most perfectly normal thing in the world. I felt that the later scenes were much more enjoyable for those who appreciate vore, but there isn’t that much for the hard-core voraphile. I didn’t really get the sense that the story centered around vore, but it added a very nice backdrop to the story. The real strength of this novel comes from Crisis and Scarecrow and their interactions with the rest of the world. There are flaws with the novel. As I see them, there are three basic categories: typographical, editing, and development. Typographically, the book isn’t very enjoyable. The letter-size pages are a bit big to fit in the hand comfortably; I felt it would do better in the A5 or trade paperback size. The pages don’t have page numbers or chapter headings. This makes it difficult to find a scene or remember a page. The margins were a tad large, over an inch, which would be relieved by using a slightly smaller format. The other thing I intensely disliked about the flow of the text is the chapter headings. It suffers from a lack of proper page breaks, so the chapters come at random places: sometimes at the top of the page, sometimes in the middle, sometimes with one line on the bottom of one page and the rest on the other. Because breaks weren’t use, the writers chose to use newlines which looked less than professional. This novel, at least the first edition, suffers from a lack of editing. I saw more than a few spelling errors that would have been caught by even a simple spell-checker. Likewise, I caught a couple wrong words spelled correctly, which detracted from that aspect of enjoyment. I’m willing to look over these when I read stuff, but those who find spelling errors anathema might want to wait until another editing round. Finally, the character and world development had a few flaws, mainly jumping around with mood and scene. There were a few scenes, like the “(CENSORED)” chapter and the torture scene that were obviously placed there for plot advancement, but felt bolted on instead of integrated with the story. This novel has a lot of potential. It is light-hearted instead of cruel, and playful instead of violent. It is really an enjoyable story, if you are willing to look over its flaws. I wouldn’t recommend it for those who really prefer the hard-core eating. But for other voraphiles willing to overlook its flaws, I would recommend this fluffy and enjoyable novel.< Less
