More About the Author

André SanThomas writes stories about gloriously submissive females at the feet of delightfully dominant men. She spins a world where women can choose to submit or choose to walk away.

As a seat of the pants writer, there is no telling where her characters may take her once they come to life on the page. Wherever it is, she is destined to go, providing only suggestions and guidance, following their lead. That may take her to high-rise in a major metro area, or a mansion on a mountaintop, or even to another world where women are owned as property. Whatever the setting, the common thread is the relationship between the characters and the lust and passion they explore.

Here is the short and the sweet of it: if you're looking for a sexy, well-written tale that cleverly combines elements of High Fantasy with classic Literary Erotica steeped in themes of female submission, stop reading this review right now and immediately download Andre SanThomas' "Ielle." You won't be disappointed.

Likewise, if you're a stickler for issues of spelling, grammar and formatting, fear not. This book is clearly the product of an author who cares enough to have her work well edited and proofed. You may proceed with confidence, though you may also wish to stop reading my review at this point.

In fact, I am reluctant to be too critical of this book. Writing of such high quality is rarely ever found in the erotica section, and needs to be encouraged. At her glorious best--certainly in the first three chapters of this novel-- Andre SanThomas achieves a seemingly effortless fluidity; a luminous web of language that enthralls and delights. She has a certain gift for description, occasionally approaching the ingenious; a few words chosen with exquisite economy conjure powerful images; the similes subtly integrated so as not to interrupt narrative momentum with clunky "this thing was like that thing" digressions. Writing such as this is a pleasure to read in any genre, and ought to be celebrated.

All this being said; the novel is too long, perhaps by as much as a third, suffering from unnecessary and occasionally inartistic repetition. This is more obvious at the structural "macro" level, where some scenes are repeated, often with exactly the same words and actions, in slightly different settings. Was this intentional; a kind of homage to certain High Fantasy genre conventions?

I'm not generally a reader of erotica, but I have read my fair share of fantasy literature, and I have to say this was an excellent book. The plot kept my interest going, the characters were likable in their own way, and I found the setting quite intriguing, a world outwardly dominated by men sexually but where women had their own forms of power through submission or seeming submission.

The sex scenes were written well and with taste. I almost laugh writing that because it's not necessarily what one expects concerning bondage scenes, but I have to say it's true in this case.

Erotica readers should check out this book and the whole Janos series. Fantasy fans, even those who aren't into erotica, will also find plenty here to enjoy.

I would preface this review as saying I have never read from the erotica genre before and I did not know what to expect. I thought my impression would be a flat story simply filled with sexual encounters. Much to my surprise I encountered a fully written, well thought-out story with nearly flawless prose. Andre SanThomas' descriptions throughout are a testament to her talents as an author. She has placed in the reader's hands a polished example of what erotica should be. I would think those who are regular readers of this genre would be more than satisfied.

Although the story held my interest as a plot, I thought the beginning of the story could have held more action outside of the bedroom which would have let characters develop at a faster pace. A little more action in the beginning could have developed the plot sooner. Nevertheless, it is a wonderful book and readers of this genre would be fools to pass it up.

As a woman whose only right is to service her owner. Has the service she has given Kyr be enough for him to see as more than just his property.

Review -

I have heard of the Gor stories and the community of readers and players that have sprouted up around them. Passing themselves off as BDSM but not in the way that many BDSM lifestyle people live. I did not enjoy this book. I did not find it to be exciting or a enjoyable erotic read. Ielle's excitement at being used by her owner was childish at best. Her master Kyr, as the male character was not the dominant you will find in other novels around a lifestyle of BDSM. This is basically a slave owner who uses his property at will. Only we are suppose to believe that the slave in this case enjoys and wants it to be so.

I have read other BDSM novels and the relationship between the dominant male and female is far different. The desire for the lifestyle is incredibly different.

The difference is choice.

This is passed off as a romance novel, it really isn't.
