This is the collected box set of all eight Dungeon Fantasy Club books. I love collections with multiple authors as they are great opportunities to explore. Collections by one author are riskier, particularly if you have not read anything by that author.
Fortunately, Ms Summers knows how to write a good story, so this collection is a wonderful way to get the entire series. That being said, there are still ups and downs from one story to the next. In general, the stories are all tied together with secondary characters from one book getting the spotlight in the next, but each can be read as a standalone with no real loss of continuity. All stories feature lots of D/S, spanking, and sex, which I would assume you are interested in if you are even considering this series.
The one drawback to the series is a lack of communications between characters, particularly between allegedly experienced doms and novice subs. Unless you are writing a dubcon story, trust and communication are the keys to a BDSM relationship and that appears to be lacking in some of these stories. The result is a sub getting punished for rules they didn't know about or other such occurrences. It gets very annoying in an otherwise well written story. Fortunately, it does not occur in all stories nor is it generally egregious, but it is irritating when it crops up.
Overall, I highly recommend this boxed set. Just be prepared to grit your teeth through the occasional lack of communication.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout for review purposes.
