Editorial Reviews

Review

"Touches of wry humor reinforce an already sturdy novel...A virtuosic, erotic sci-fi debut." -Kirkus Reviews

"[The book] explores and humanises the universality of love, justice, faith and consequentiality." -Self Publishing Magazine

"The wonderful and powerful imagination of the author brings all the characters and the situations they find themselves in very real and believable." -The Scribes Library

"The writing is beautiful, erotic, poetic, intense, imaginative, intelligent - and gripping enough that I could barely put it down... Ultimately, this is one of the most delightful books I've ever read." -Francis James Franklin (Alina Meridon) Literary Blog

"A novel that can teach us how to rebel against the colonisation of the mind." Bert Olivier, Thought Leader

"I recommend this book for both the content that makes you think and the author's talent with words that make you read a sentence twice just for the beauty of it." -Readers' Favorite

From the Back Cover

Love is transformation. I found a man who turned lead into gold, but he disappeared. I looked for him violating all rules, until I discovered that I myself was the key. Everything depended on whether and how I carried out a terrible assignment. Love, world peace, and my own conscience were at stake.

Above all, this novel is a display of imagination, in all senses. The story is original; the language is used with creativity and precision to achieve visual clarity. Even the inner world of the protagonist is shown in full color. Numerous high voltage erotic scenes, whose temperature and frequency increase as the mystery plot unfolds, modulate the rhythm and create a sense of suspense that contributes to grab the reader?s expectancy. I think they imply much more than they explicitly tell, serving the story and allowing for several layers of interpretation. The result is a really different novel dealing with a highly topical subject when democracy and press freedom are under threat.

I really enjoyed reading this novel. It deals with important themes, such as the transformative power of love, the conflict between love and truth, and the function of the press, in a brave, profound way, and in a brilliant style. Yet it is entertaining and easy to read. It gets more and more thrilling page after page, especially in the second half. The end is just perfect.

Exciting
It is an exciting story full of surprises, with fascinating characters. Ishtar Benten is possibly one of the most passionate heroines ever. She is an extraordinary person, yet she is so lively and lovely that you can't help feeling identified with her.

Format: Paperback
This is certainly unlike any book I have ever read as Erotica is not in my usual reading pile but this book is more complex than simple Erotica. It's a futuristic, dystopian world where everything is controlled by a select few and Ishtar, the central character, makes it into the inner circle and learns many disturbing truths.

She is a writer for a department called "Written Chronicles" where she writes current events with an erotic twist as love and sex are her speciality. Her descriptions of sex are certainly unconventional and she has a twist for imaging what each person she meets would be like to make love to.

The descriptions of people as she meets them are not what you would expect. As an example these are the thoughts she has as she meets new colleagues;

"This is Artemis Lahar, a maternal chestnut, though somewhat masculine, slightly hunchbacked, and in her fifties, I guess. I see her turned into a scarecrow and the angelic face of a straw doll. She rages and whips me with a bundle spikes, then ties me to a woolen weba and penetrates me with an ear of corn."

"This busty blonde with cheerful eyes and way medium-length hair, who welcomes me bouncing, as if she were recovering her best friend after a long separation, is Enki Neith. She must be entering her thirties, although her skin and spirit seem ten years younger. I imagine her as a goat with a fish tail, breast-feeding me with sour milk full of oxygen bubbles so that I can breathe while she drags me inside the sea. There she drives her head into my naked pubis, transforms her lips into a sucker, and engages my vulva like a tapeworm."

A little surprising at first, but I quickly adapted to the tone and her way of thinking.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

I loved the imagination of the author, it is very colorful. This story has many electrifying erotic scenes. I did have a hard time at first getting into the story, but that was because I was not used to this style of writing. After the first couple of chapters I couldn't seem to put the book down.

This is the most unusual and fascinating book I've read in recent years! A world inside the other, a future rooted in the present, and a surprising end in which the title gets justified. A gripping story where the selfish desire for pleasure and welfare fights with the sense of duty to society, to the world full of injustice in which we will live, unless we decide to act now for a change.

Reading this novel I found myself in a world full of sensuality. An intelligent and shrewd criticism of the present reality is hidden below the creative exuberance of the story. The conceptual and formal development is worthy of Kubrick, Huxley, and other great authors that go beyond the simple, linear description, and at the same time provoke an expansion of our awareness as individual and social beings. With a juicy and highly aesthetic style, Yaakunah creates a world of intricate mysteries and complex social epics, grounded in the deepest passions of the human soul.

Format: Paperback
This book is absolutely amazing. It took me a couple of chapters to get into it, but once I did I could not put it down, I was simply absorbed by it and it was in my head even when I was not reading it.

Actually it was nothing that I expected. When I first read the description and signed up to win it, I was just thinking to explore the genre of erotica that I never read. The book seemed like a sex novel only a bit less dumb than the ones I heard about before. But it was so much more than that.

I am actually somebody who reads more non-fiction than fiction, and even when it comes to fiction I usually prefer the realistic narrations of the world we live in or from the past and yet this book that is more surreal than anything was great for me as well.

Yes, there is lots of sex in it. And sometimes it is more bizarre than anything, but this is because sex in this book isn't simply sex. It is a metaphor. Just like all the other surreal and lyrical elements of the book. The book is more of a social and political commentary of the world we live in. We see the battle of love/sex vs. hate/violence, the manipulation of society by the media, the control by politics, the question of weather what we hear is reality and if the lies we are told benefit us. Sure, one can just read this book as a sci fi erotica thriller, but by doing so one misses out on a lot.

I also would like to mention author's brilliant narrating style. The words used bring the depth, the atmosphere,the juiciness, the feelings, the excitement. It is absolutely beautiful.

I feel like re reading this book again because I feel like I will find so much more in it after having discovered more of the meaning and get to enjoy seeing more references that I might have missed at my first read.

A huge applause to the first time author, she truly created a masterpiece. To me it is not just a novel, it is a true literature.
