    1. I loved this story! Such a fresh take on the classic fairy tale figures of the prince and the loyal huntsman. What M/M fan hasn't read or watched a "typical" story and secretly hoped that the best friends would get together, or that the loyal servant would finally be able to express his true feelings for his regent? This story is a very satisfying take on those ideas, all wrapped up with beautiful prose and some really fun twists on the fairy tale genre. Highly recommended.

    2. Anatole's writing is unusual and beautiful, rich with eloquent description. The story is well-told with humor and emotion. The sex is exquisite: sensuous, raw, and profound. As with any good seduction, this story left me pleased and sated, but wanting more. Delightful.

    3. It's not erotic—it's suggestive. I had forgotten how good this was. It's kinda like wicked in that it reminds you of the fairy tales but puts them in a different light. The tension is wonderfully present throughout. And finally consummated at the end. Full marks!

    4. A brief piece of poetic lust told Brother Grimm style.This is one fairy tale I could totally get addicted to.Great book cover.
