The Girls from Alcyone – Cary Caffrey

The Girls from Alcyone – Cary Caffrey

Posted by on Nov 5, 2017 in Book Review, Reviews |

The Review:  Genetically and biomechanically-enhanced, teenage, lesbian, space-mercenaries… Yep! I was sold too. The Girls from Alcyon is the first book of The Girls from Alcyon series.  I picked it up in my normal searches through Audible.  Now this book goes more into the category of “Sexy” vs “Sexual”. There is a very nice lesbian sex scene in the book, but as far as porn goes, that’s about it. However, if you like imagining young lesbians going into combat either naked or in skin-tight outfits, then you’ll love this book.  Now all of the sexiness aside (did I mention that there are lesbians?) what you have here is also a very well written sci-fi story. The book begins on a future earth where a family is giving over their 6-year-old daughter, Sigrid, to a mercenary group, to pay off their growing debts. She is then transported off planet where she is groomed along with a number of other girls, to become the next generation of mercenaries.  As you follow Sigrid along on her adventures, the author does a wonderful job of world building, making her universe run by corporations rather than governments come alive.  Unlike most first novels, you at no time find yourself trying to figure out where something or someone fits into the story world. She also manages to work the sexual content, what there is of it, inorganically, with the main character discovering her attraction to and eventual love for another female character as the story progresses. All in all, this is very good sci-fi. I could almost picture this as an anime where the women’s clothes keep getting destroyed in battle.  Very enjoyable! ~Jake The Details: Book: The Girls from Alcyone [Amazon] Author: Cary Caffrey Narrator: Kristin James Print Length: 316 pages Audio Book Length: 10hrs 36min Series Name: The Girls from Alcyone The Ratings: Jake and/or Sean give a score on how they felt the book compares to others they’ve read and how good the sexytime in the work is.

Good Intentions – Elliott Kay

Good Intentions – Elliott Kay

The Reviews: This being my first review, let me start by saying that I do 95% of my “Reading” via Audible audiobooks while I’m commuting to and from work.  So, most of my reviews on here will be on the audio versions of the book in question.  I came across Good Intentions when I actually wasn’t looking for anything classified as Erotica, but looking for something SciFi/Fantasy. However when I was reading the description, I really was enjoying the premise, and was sold when I saw this warning at the end: “WARNING: Good Intentions contains explicit sexuality, violence, nudity, inappropriate use of church property, portrayals of beings divine and demonic bearing little or no resemblance to established religion or mythology, trespassing, bad language, sacrilege, blasphemy, attempted murder, arguable murder, divinely mandated murder, justifiable murder, sexual promiscuity, kidnapping, attempted rape, arson, dead animals, desecrated graves, gang activity, theft, assault and battery, panties, misuse of the 911 system, questionable interrogation tactics, cell phone abuse, reckless driving, consistent abuse of vampires (because they deserve it), even more explicit sexuality, illegal use of firearms, polyamory, abuse of authority, hit and run driving, destruction of private property, underage drinking, disturbances of the peace, disorderly conduct, Internet harassment, bearers of false witness, mayhem, dismemberment, falsification of records, tax evasion, an uncomfortably sexy mother, bad study habits, and a very silly white guy inappropriately calling another white guy “nigga” (for which he will surely suffer).“ How could I not listen to this book?? What I found was actually a funny, exciting, and heartwarming story about a geeky college kid, who through a brave act of selflessness finds himself mystically bound to both an angel and a succubus, and discovers the paranormal underground of his hometown Seattle.  This book hits on so many levels.  If you’re looking for a good Urban Fantasy, this is it.  If you’re looking for a humorous buddy comedy, this is it. If you looking for a really well-written book of smut, you have really come to the right place. On one last note, since I am reviewing the audiobook, and the narrator can make or break your enjoyment of such, the performance of Tess Irondale was spot on.  So read or listen on. You won’t regret it. ~Jake As often happens with books in the last few years Jake scouted and found this book first and because he is my brother in erotica, he recommended it to me. I put it on my list and didn’t think much about it until a few months later when I read it and it blew my brain out the back of my skull. I’ve always had a thing for Angels and Demon girls ever since reading the Incarnations of Immortality series when I was a teen and Elliott Kay managed to put together something that took that sexual fantasy about three steps further and distilled it down...
