Bade, prince of a tiny, overlooked country, doesn't have a plan for his life. Never in his wildest dreams does he expect an invitation to court the Pharaoh of Orina Anoris, ruler of the most powerful country in the world. Suddenly whisked away, Bade finds himself in an exotic land that dazzles his senses and opens his eyes. The people are uninhibited, expressive, flirtatious, and don't know the meaning of sexual repression. Boyfriends, lovers, harems--it boggles Bade's mind to witness a freedom he never imagined. But the endless parade of beautiful men pales in comparison to the pharaoh. His beauty is literally perfection. Crackling with power, intimidating yet friendly, he is unconventional and traditionally Anorian. After being exposed to a vibrant, colorful new world, nights of sizzling passion, and the possibilities of true love, how can Bade face the thought of being rejected and returning home? Will he be able to win the pharaoh's heart and help his people?

This book was pretty much impossible to get through. Nothing happens. The beauty and the glory and the utter perfection of the kingdom, its king, and his assorted brothers, this is what passes for plot. Sexual interludes occur--w/out any apparent significance attached. I would read the next in the series w/a gun to my head and a lot to live for.
It's very hard to read about a totally different world and make it believable but Matthew Haldeman-Time made his alternate world so real that I'm so disappointed when I looked up from reading the book and found myself in my ordinary room, in my ordinary world. This is such a wonderful, wonderful book! I can't wait to get my hands on the next one. Ana
"The Purple Book" This is an amazing, amazing start to an overwhelmingly addictive and emotionally satisfying series. If you do anything for yourself this year, buy this book, and then subscribe to the series at http://www.matthewhaldemantime.com/inthisland.html. I've been a subscriber for over two years now and I haven't regretted a single second of it. - Jae
