"Sex Rites" explores beyond the traditional science fiction genre with a genuine saga of gay sexual adventure, very much in the style of Philip Jose Farmer. This is such an arousing story that a brief review can hardly do justice to the well crafted new character. Dannel is an incredible sensual stud who was sold by his greedy parents at a very young age to a cult to become one of their enslaved guardians of ancients secrets.
Thane is on the run from the Zamindar's relentless pursuers, after thwarting the tyrannical ruler's chance for immortality. Having narrowly prevented destruction of the Lyceum, a community of mages that use sex magic, Sorrel and Nicolai have sent the ever playful Skorri and his skilled companion Erik to assist in Thane and Ander's escape. As a result, we are treated to a sexually filled adventure into new lands of ancient secrets. The reader is given the opportunity to more fully understand why Skorri and Erik are so highly regarded at the Lyceum for their particular skills and legendary horny nature.
This was a fine tale to conclude the series and especially fun to see some new ideas of sexual intrigue and exploration. On my first reading, I didn't fully appreciate the attention to the sexual and cultural details that Brandon Fox manages to weave into the story. This is not a novel to race through just to get from one sex scene to the next. "Sex Rites" is well thought out gay science fiction that will leave you feeling good and pondering things beyond the scope of simple pleasures. A fine novel to read more than once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sex, romance and a real plot! Jan. 6 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This novel is very erotic like the first two in the series, and the emotional bonds between the characters are just as strong. Several characters from the first two books continue a colorful story of adventure and sex magic, plus there is a new character named Dannel. Dannel is a great character, full of problems and frustrations as well as hope and nobility. I really liked a surprise plot twist that puts the whole trilogy in a new light. This installment takes place in a different setting than the first two books, which made for good variety. As for drawbacks, I wish the book was longer! It's a full-length story, but I wanted to spend more time with the characters. The ending is very dramatic and powerful and leaves you wanting more. I cared about the characters, which for me is the mark of a good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sci-Fi joins the Adult Community April 18 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Enough of these childish space operas! Finally, I can enjoy my science-fiction, as an adult, coupled with normal sexual action. For years, sci-fi writers have treated their readers as if they were grade school librarians. Hey, guys! We are beyond Buck Rodgers and Flash Gordon. Poor Dale, she never got Flash in bed! That's a crime against both Dale and adult readers. Now, a lot of modern science fiction books have joined "Sex Rites." If you run out of Fox, and want more, look at Ray Emerson's "The Riddle of Cthulhu" for more erotic science+sex-fiction. If you like more classical old time science+sex-fiction, enjoy Haggard's "She." Let's have more writers like Brandon Fox, Ray Emerson, and yes, even Haggard!

3.0 out of 5 stars Give us more, Please!! Dec 31 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I loved the first two books in this series. They were very detailed about the personalities and motives of the characters. The sex was great! The endings left me breathless, wanting more. Then, what happened? If I was Brandon Fox's editor, I would have sent him back to the word processor to work on this story to flesh (sorry about that) it out more. It just seems like half a story to me. The new character is fine, but could have been developed more. Erik and Skorri don't hold a candle to Nicolai and Sorren. And where is the zaimandar.... Brandon Fox is a very good writer, but this is not his best work. Come on, Brandon, give us more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heroic adventure + eroticism Sept. 29 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book includes passionate erotic encounters, like the other novels in the series, but really it's an adventure focusing on the travails and growth of the characters. Some people might not like the sexual content of these books, but it's in keeping with the "sex magic" premise and occurs between characters with deep emotional bonds - the erotic scenes show lovemaking rather than just getting off. The characters make this series, more than the sex. The story is satisfying because the characters show heroism and growth.
