In the final volume of Anne Rice's deliciously tantalizing erotic trilogy, Beauty's adventures on the dark side of sexuality make her the bound captive of an Eastern Sultan and a prisoner in the exotic confines of his harem. As this voluptuous adult fairy tale moves toward conclusion, all of Beauty's encounters with the myriad variations of sexual fantasy are presented in a sensuous, rich prose that intensifies this exquisite rendition of Love's secret world and makes the Beauty series an incomparable study of erotica. In it, Anne Rice makes the forbidden side of passion a doorway into the hidden regions of the psyche and the heart.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deborah Ideiosepius | 2/20/2014

    " Very soft porn/erotica. Not especially noteworthy in any way except as to the author. The plot does occasionally lose vibrancy. Pretty good ending though, the ability to end a story well should never be overated. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Val | 2/19/2014

    " I read this in my teens and again over the summer. Good for erotica. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lorri Saunders | 2/18/2014

    " Again, the same pleasures, punishments, and tortures just a different location. Laurent and Tristan are the main focus of this book, Beauty is given scant few chapters and doesn't really show up until the end. The ending is merely okay. I just never felt emotionally invested in any of the characters or the story. My overall opinion of the series remains the same as it did for each book individually...didn't hate it, but didn't love it either. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 2/12/2014

    " Cant wait for the fourth book... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon Lucas | 2/6/2014

    " This is the third book in the trilogy, and I suggest saving it for last so that you know the history. If you've read the other two, then obviously you're not bothered by literature containing fantasy sexual violence, various BDSM and the like. Again, as with all three of the books, the spankings get monotonous, but there are less scenes of those in this book than in the prior two. This book has yet another change in locale as Beauty and a few others are kidnapped from the village and taken to an Arabian kingdom. By the end of the book, all of the primary characters have some sort of closure, and the loosest ends are nicely concluded. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 1/26/2014

    " Great read, intresting twist In last 3 rd of the book! Really loved the extra characters brought into the series in book two and continued to enjoy them all through book three Prince Laurent definately my favorite. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melanie | 1/20/2014

    " Moving to the unread pile. I just don't think I can make it through another book with Beauty. I had to MAKE myself finish the 2nd installment of her story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren Gorczyca | 1/19/2014

    " The third part of the trilogy, i couldn't stop. If you can get through the 1st two (that are also great), and by that I mean aren't put off by certain sexual subjects, you will really enjoy this. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rene' | 1/19/2014

    " This was my fav of the three books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lee-anne Cutajar | 1/4/2014

    " don't recommend but each to their own x "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexander | 12/30/2013

    " My favorite of the three. Really a fantastic series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paula | 12/10/2013

    " Book three really was more about Prince Laurent and Prince Tristan than Beauty. It dragged out a bit too much and I can honestly say I was glad that it was over. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 12/9/2013

    " I don't really agree with Anne's "pain= pleasure" proposition. The idea of a reinterpretation of Sleeping Beauty loses force over three volumes. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dawn Hardy | 10/2/2013

    " A book for pedophiles and rapists. Teenage sex slaves with stockholm syndrome. I read this because it was supposed to be like Fifty Shades. It is NOT. Rape is rape and should not be glorified in books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lorie | 9/23/2013

    " ok Dee...i read them all...they deserve each other :) back to reality...YUCK "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley Banas | 9/8/2013

    " Unrealistic book about bdsm. The third and last book of the mini series is kind of romantic but drawn out like most of Rice's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa Ashabranner | 9/1/2013

    " Final in the series. Had to take a break for a min after this one to clear my head "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lucky13ca | 8/29/2013

    " This series was interesting and very different. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 C | 8/3/2013

    " And even more ("blerrrgh!") of the same. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angelica | 7/4/2013

    " This series were my intoduction to true erotica. Well written, beautiful, erotic but not smutty. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracy Morton | 6/30/2013

    " By this point I was just bored of the whole story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin Bennett | 6/23/2013

    " I liked the end. It ended "normal". The rest dealt with more pain than I liked. Not to much pleasure, I think. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corrine Brady | 6/6/2013

    " Not for the faint of heart!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diane | 5/29/2013

    " A little too S & M for my liking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 3/25/2013

    " Umm. So I liked it. Don't judge me. Hahahaha. Seriously, Anne Rice? You must have been really deprived! LoL! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Faye | 3/23/2013

    " The best of the three. I loved the complete example of a switch character. Again don't pick these up without an open mind. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alison | 3/18/2013

    " The best of the three books (because it ends). Still not even close to being worth the haul of getting through this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill Hawkins | 2/15/2013

    " Quite honestly, the best erotic novels I have yet to read. This includes the entire trilogy. "
