The first book of the series had my interest. But by the end I was not only horrified but terrbibly bored.
By this time Beauty and her buddies have been through this path: capture, castle, village, kidnap to the Arabian plalace. I was all excited about the wonders and mysteries and exotic forms of slavery and punishment, only to be very dissappointed in how little we learned about the palace in the first place.
Rice made a major mistake by villinazing the Sultan of the palace. ... This really destroyed the idea that this is "fantasy", a world where no one really gets "hurt, injured or cut" as two characters stated in the previous books. The fact that Beauty might have truly been injured in this same way really scared me half to death because I wasn't expecting "real pain" or "real danger" to enter this story.
The only thing that made this volume worth reading was the rebellion of one of the slaves, who surprised me and thrilled me to no end. And then it went back to being boring. Altough, men who liked to be dominated hardcore might not find it that way since a great portion of books 2 and 3 was written to cater to men's needs (oh Anne, why???)

read it because i bought the trilogy set. my bad x3. if you like anne rice don't read this junk, it'll tarnish your opinion of her writing ability. how could such a good story teller (vampires) miss all the fairytale and just write porn? stick to vampires anne...please.

Well, Sleeping Beauty was never told like this before! If you go for this kind of thing, I guess you'll like it, but it's way too much spanking and kind of silly groveling around and subjugation that I can't take seriously.
