Taking Forever To Get To The Action Here....

Overall, I would say that this book is not worth it. the different authors are nice and mix things up, but they focus too much on building the world, not on the actual sexual action that each chapter should be full of. The odd wording, drawn out chapters, and always having to re-imagine a different world with each chapter is pretty hard to follow. In my opinion, find a book that has a coherent storyline, not one like this that is just so random.
Fantasy world based, different authors, long
boring, not enough action, can be hard to understand

Content / Style / Audience

The style of this book is all medieval. It is 14 chapters of short stories involving mythical kingdoms, virgin princesses, dragons, evil kings, witches, kink queens, and pretty much any other sort of slant of eroticism you can put on medieval character types.

The content in all honesty was pretty bland. They use a lot of old wording for body parts and areas that anyone younger might have trouble understanding. On top of that, getting to the the actual erotic parts takes forever. Many chapters take their time building the scene and period and spend over 3/4 of the chapter around it. Then when you actually do get to the action, its very boring and ends fast like a direct to DVD movie. Honestly, if I was someone who just needed something time consuming to read and liked fantasy, this would be my book. There just isn't enough action to keep my attention for more than one chapter at a time.

    This review seemed kind of... not smoothly flowing. I'd like to maybe hear a specific title you thought was really bad? A title you didn't like? An example of some of the writing? Ideas of stories. Are they are different or similar.
