    A provocative fantasy story that is intensely interesting and of fascinating premise

    As debut novels come this is certainly a complex creation, in which the in-depth ideas and bold singularity stands-out a mile. Acceptance of homosexuality and multiple marriages somewhat contradicts all reasoning when relationships between the races is forbidden, (an element within this novel that I found most surprising). The main character ‘Horsemeat’ is a half-breed Centaur, with her story and experiences bei

    This is not an easy book to read. First off, the world the author has created is an uncomfortable one. While homosexuality is common and accepted, as is multiple marriages, relationships between the races are not. Any children of these unions are treated as dirt, if they're lucky.

    The second thing that makes this a difficult read are the characters. The main character, is a half bread centaur - she seem human but has a tail. She's shunned, mocked, abused, and treated worse than most animals. But

    Interesting concept and overall all an enjoyable read. I found the heroine sympathetic as she deals with recovering memories lost to severe childhood trauma. Good first book even if a little rough around the edges. Enough suspense and action to keep things moving.

    Reason I read it was because two authors whose work I love recommended it - Lindsay Buroker and Kendra Highley. Thanks!

    Not my cup of tea.
    The prose was good. I didn't find it stilted or juvenile like much of the self published books on the market now. Good prose goes a long way for me. That said, the author's style couldn't make up for the content. The concepts were just too much for me. Mates of each sex, bestiality, gang rape...It was too much and jerked me out of the world. Granted, the world building is quite good and the ideas are unique (kissing and sharing your home bed adding up to marriage commitment/wed

    Jeanne Marcella was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Granted unlimited access to books at a very early age via the library, she quickly acquired a fondness for creating her own stories through word and drawing.

    She writes queer dark fantasy not for the faint of heart, and fun urban fantasy soaps, all with romantic elements.
