If you are a fan of vampires, witches, werewolves, or even Angels then you are most likely a fan of Anne Rice. However, very few of the adventurous readers I know have gotten around to “The Sleeping Beauty” series that was originally published under the pseudonym A.N. Roquelaure back in the 1980’s before she was a seasoned writer. I came across Rice’s stories while in high school and slowly made my way through her catalog of books during the late 1990’s. To my surprise no one I knew had heard of these books. I soon realized this was not a story meant for a younger audience, but like the main character aptly named Beauty, a literary sexual awakening was sitting in my lap! I didn’t really know what the meaning of phallus was, but I was soon introduced to a plethora of sexual terminology that has had me intrigued for years to come. Fans of erotica know “50 Shades of Grey” is nothing compared to this erotica series. Why read about a billionaire sociopath when you can read about a whole kingdom dedicated to sexual foreplay and eroticism? A WHOLE KINGDOM PEEPS! There is even a village outside the kingdom that tributes, such as Beauty, are sent to when people are punished for not being subservient. It sounds crazy! Crazy awesome.
