Book Description

April 15 2011
n a fantasy world where male/male lust fuels Night Magic, Prince Kenet lives a sheltered life. Isolated from the war that threatens the kingdom, he and his whipping boy Jorin are of age, but still sneak forbidden pleasures in their bed at night. When a dark mage tries to bespell Kenet into sexual submission, the prince and his boy are thrust into the world of intrigue, sex, and war. Volume One of The Prince's Boy collects chapters 1 through 56 of this wildly popular gay erotic web serial by Cecilia Tan. Begun on July 29, 2009, chapters were posted weekly, following the adventures of Prince Kenet and his whipping boy, Jorin. Drawing on complex themes of dominance and submission, the need for secrecy in a world where homosexuality is not accepted, and the intertwining of sex with magic, Tan weaves a complex, sex-filled adventure that is part "Three Musketeers" and part "Claiming of Sleeping Beauty."

5.0 out of 5 stars A strong brew of magic, romance, and sex in bondage April 18 2011
By Merri-Todd Webster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If your taste in erotica includes science fiction or fantasy, you probably already know Cecilia Tan's work. This story, the first half of the epic (in several senses) erotic serial she began web-publishing about two years ago, is an intoxicating mix of sex, romance, magic, and political intrigue, with a few fight scenes thrown in. A pampered prince and his whipping boy, who bears the punishment for the prince's transgressions, are separated by a deep-laid plot just as their childhood attachment blossoms into an adult romance, and both young men must spend time with many other partners before they are reunited.

Prospective readers should be aware, however, that themes of dominance, submission, coercion, and consent are central to this story. Most of the sex scenes qualify as BDSM, and many of them are brutal and coercive even by the mores of the fantasy setting. If you don't like BDSM fiction, or if you like scenes in fiction as in life to be carefully negotiated, safeworded, and rounded off with cookies and a hot beverage, then The Prince's Boy will not be to your taste.

If you do like bondage, flogging, and dubious consent mixed in with your true love and heroic deeds, this story will satisfy. As Tan points out in her preface, it was written as a weekly serial, and thus every single chapter packs a hard erotic punch. In fact, you may find yourself in a bit of a daze while reading it. My only complaint, if I should call it that, is the almost complete absence of female characters; Tan can write strong female characters with sexual agency better than most, but here she has created a stringently masculine world of kings, soldiers, and magic that derives its power from the forbidden lust of man for man. I recommend it for the adventurous reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwrenching & Totally Hot Tale May 29 2012
By Leah Petersen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
(Yep, I meant the pun.)

I followed this one as the web serial and I'm telling you, there were times when I counted the days until the next installment. The emotion and connection between the boys, one a prince and one his whipping boy, is fraught with emotion, joy, and grief. The power dynamic, often so different than what you'd expect, is fabulous. It's intense gay erotic BDSM and I know that's what you're looking for or you wouldn't be on this page. Just do it. No one has to know. It's totally worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Kinky M/M Fantasy June 1 2011
By HP Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This review is of the on-line version (because I haven't got my copy yet), which started posting in 2009 on Circlet Press. Today, two years and 96 chapters later, Cecilia Tan posted the Epilogue. All I can say is - what a ride!

This book hit all my kink buttons - it's not a story for the weak. I read quite a few m/m novels that end up boring me, with dull, repetitive sex scenes and no plot. This story has just the right amount of both. And the sex - it's difficult to describe. It's all over the map, from tender to extremely rough and violent. With non-con, dub-con, and BDSM themes, this book won't be for everyone, but if you're in the mood for a good fantasy tale wrapped around hot and steamy m/m sex, this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic & Love & Boys, Oh my! May 28 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

The Prince's Boy: Volume One

Cecilia Tan proves that she is one of America's great storytellers in the tale, "The Prince's Boy." Finally, an author who understands how to integrate eroticism into a work so that it lends to the plot, rather than seeming like a stream of disjointed sexual episodes. I could not put this one down, and the love story between the two main characters is simultaneously sweet, innocent and courageous. Jorin & Kenet must battle dark forces that threaten to pull apart their entire world. This is definitely a must-read.
4.0 out of 5 stars Nice world building and plot, overdone on sex scenes Sept. 21 2014
By Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like the storyline, but the author seems to think that her readers must have a sex scene in practically every chapter. I love sex scenes as much as anyone, but I kinda want them to be pivotal to the plot too, at least most of the time. It is definitely a fantasy and magical world and kept me on edge wondering what would happen next, but I did find myself skipping over sex scenes so I could enjoy the plot.
