A really cute little story that follows, what I like to call the LT3 Recipe, quite faithfully. Not that I'm complaining, of course. Gets me every time (and what does that say about me).

This is a bit of a scandalous book actually, despite being only 32 pages. A bit of extraterrestrial, incestuous, threeway love going on here. Not sure if it can get any more taboo. And yet miraculously, the thrill of taboo is noticeably absent (I'm afraid the LT3 Recipe does not allow space for anything other than

Anike is an artist hired by the prince to visually record every possible moment of the visit by ambassadors of a neighboring country of Marana. Anike finds the brothers to be fascinating since he has never seen their race, with long faces with sharply slanted features, their oval irises and slightly iridescent skin. This book had so much unrealized potential. It is very short and seems more like an outline for a lon

2,5* upgrade for the free Ficbits:
I didn't like the constant smirking and lack of a "real" story behind all the words but the Ficbits made up for it.

This was an interesting fantasy short that had me swept up in the descriptions of life in this world, but due to its short length also left me with some reservations. Anike is a painter who has been hired by the ruler to record all great events during his reign. It would be similar to an official photographer today. His usual mode of working, is during any large event, like a ball or high level meetings, he makes various sketches and then pain

Anike is the court artist, whose job is to memorialize his prince's life in drawings. He is especially drawn to the ambassadors from Marana, who have fangs and scaly skin. They are also brothers, so if that's a hard limit, be aware there's a bit of brocest.

This was a light easy read, that really could stand to be a bit longer. I did like the bit of world-building that we were able to read. However, there was a little too much insta-love/lust for me, and I never really felt like we got to know e

Well, I think I should've read more reviews before starting this one. It started promising but then everything became shallow and hasty. Yes, hasty. It could've been a nice novel. Instead, now we have a very quick read as though the author has wanted to wrap up every challenging issues in a few paragraphs. What a pity!

was a short story when the description before downloading stated novel, story wise was lacking and lack of character building is what keeps this from a 5. it wasn't what i was looking for but a 3 because it had me asking for the rest of the book.

Sasha Miller's writing is always great, and the characters were cute as hell. It was very fun, but a little to quick for my taste. But a very enjoyable read.

enjoyed it, but since it involved a 3some, I'm not very keen on those. The pet names that they called the main character at times was also a bit offsetting.
I want to say that I didn't like this book, and damn! I certainly hate threesomes. The story was good until turned into a menage it suck.

Very interesting world and cute characters, but the story was too short for any proper develpment. I'd totally give it 4-5 stars if it turned into a proper novel.
