    This is the first book review I've written since the sixth grade, and the only reason I'm writing it now is because the book really came out of nowhere. I've never heard of the author before and the books only have a few ratings. I actually saw this book first and then noticed it was the second in a series so I bought the first one pretty much on a whim and I have to say I was blown away. I have just finished this book. I'd like to say I couldn't put it down, but I kind of had to because it is too big to read at one sitting if you're like me and have a job. No offense to Lulu, but i've found that while self-publishing generally gives you a lot of books for very little money, the quality tends to suffer, so even with the positive reviews on these books, I was prepared for something pretty average. Instead I got one hell of a good story. I don't think its too much to say that the author takes erotica from the simple formula of Boy-Meets-Girl and elevates it to the level of... More > Good-Versus-Evil. I was hooked from the first chapter of the first book. Heck, I was hooked from the first Brief Word! (which was a page and a half, which should have warned me how long the book was going to be) There are supposed to be two more books in the series, but I don't think they're available yet because believe me I have been looking. If I knew where he lived, I’d be knocking on his door, begging for the next installment in person.< Less

    Hands-down the best book I've ever read for fantasy or erotica! I've never written a review before but I had to write one for this one because it really was that good. All the funny stuff aside, at its heart, it's about one person whose trying to do the right thing. Its about the best of humanity, even when its coming out of someone who isn't human, and what I loved about it the most was Taryn's willingness to do anything for the people she loved. Its a much bigger story than you expect to find in something tagged as erotica and I'm glad I read it. Maybe this is inappropriate for a review, especailly for this sort of book, but I lost my grandfather recently and reading the part where the old Morathi crosses really gave me comfort. I had my own "ritual of the bread" with my family and they all told me how close it made them feel to his spirit. I just didn't tel them where I got the idea.

    A perfect follow-up to the first book! Rarely do sequels succeed as well as the first, but I get the strong impression that Smith really wrote the two books as one HUGE story and then broke it down into novels. "TWitW" picks up pretty much exactly where "TCaFoG" left off, and immediately rips the friendly mask off the "poor, lonely magus". Taryn is successfully menaced, rescued, seduced, banished, brought back, befriended, abducted, rescued again, and ends by completely turning the tables on the "damsel in distress" stereotype by saving the day in one of the weirdest, most disturbing, and strangely poignant scenes I've ever read. My favorite scene in the book has to be the Farasai Gathering, which is technically about a dozen scenes. The riddling contests where Taryn meets and triumphs over Tonka-Tiyu so perfectly show her tough, intelligent, and most of all compassionate personality. She is a real hero, which is not something you expect to read... More > in erotica. Bottom line: If you are looking for an erotic STORY that you will want to read over and over, the Lords of Arcadia will not disapoint.< Less
