This is an erotic epic fantasy unlike anything she has written before, and one that should serve to open up a whole new kind of readership.
When Lyka mentioned that she was working on a story loosely based on John Norman's Gor novels, I was ridiculously excited. I fell in love with that world's sci-fi submission and slavery during my teenage years, rereading the handful of novels written from the Kajira point-of-view over and over, and always wished that he would explore just one transgender character. While it is unlike he will ever fulfill that wish, Lyka has provided the next best thing.
Kal'an opens here, on Earth, with a story of three friends exploring a new tunnel in some subterranean caves. The detail is fantastic, capturing both the awe and the fear of the experience, and their sudden emergence into a new world with twin suns is handled quite nicely, with one brave explorer, one cautious friend, and some unbalanced young man in denial. The arrival of a caravan of cat-like humanoids is played perfectly, with the capture and delivery of the humans taking us deeper into the world.
I hesitate to say too much about that world, but 'Soft Path' offered to captives is both sinister and seductive, described in magical terms, with a sense of ceremony and pageantry to the transformation. We do not get a lot of sexual submission here, more a recounting of nights passed, but what we do get is enough to establish the plight of captives on Kal'an. In, by far, the most plot-driven of all her books, Lyka keeps the story moving with surprises, betrayals, and revelations that continue to expand this new world and add even greater detail. It does end on something of a cliffhanger, but this is a complete story in itself, with the next chapter promising something even bigger and bolder.
If you are a fan of heroic fantasy, sexual slavery, and gender transformation, then Kal'an is pretty much the book you (and I) have been looking for.
Lyka Bloom always tells a fantastic tale of gender-swapping and gender-transformation, but The Curse of Madeline may be her sexiest and most sinisterLyka Bloom always tells a fantastic tale of gender-swapping and gender-transformation, but The Curse of Madeline may be her sexiest and most sinister yet. It is a weird, magical sort of tale, one the grabs hold of your imagination and puts the readers under a hypnotic spell of their own.
It all begins when Dennis' daughter brings a new friend home, a stunningly beautiful young woman who wastes no time putting the moves on the man of the house. Their sex is quick, passionate, and dirty, always ending in the messy pleasure of Dennis licking his way through her creampie to bring her to orgasm. I have to admit, that kinky addition was a little touch that I loved, and it does play a significant role in making the magic happen.
The actual body-swap transformation is slow and surreal, a magical sort of transition that is deliberately confusing, blending roles and genders. It all leads to a dark, open-ended climax, with a conversation that reveals just enough information to intrigue the reader, but to leave a sense of mystery. Definitely recommended.

Lyka has a knack for setting up corporations that specialize in professional feminization, and in Corporate Takeover: Brains and Brawn the news has begun to spread. Not just one, but two, competing business rivals plan to commit one another to sinister talents of Raquel Benson . . . not knowing that the other has made the same plans.
As is often the case with Lyka, it is the mental conditioning and the physical breaking of the men that makes the story, with loads of sumptuous detail invested in illustrating their transformations. Despite that, she rarely repeats herself, as shown by the very different paths she has her subjects take here. The quick breaking of Prentiss/Brandi is fun to explore, but is the split-personality approach to Lars/Shawna that I found most intriguing.
While I suspect part of the final twists (and there are more than one), I was delighted to see how the story turned out with . . . well, maybe not a happily-ever-after for all involved, but at least a sense of poetic justice. Well-written with some great characters, Brains and Brawn is another fun read from the Mistress of gender transformation.

We have all had that one teacher who sparked our teenage fantasies. If you are like me, you probably still have the occasional dream about them. With Hot for Teacher, Dani not only puts a transgender spin on those memories, she plays right into the femdom aspect of our lust for such an obvious authority figure. What I loved about this story was how easily Todd gets over his initial surprise, and how his doubts and insecurities shift from fearful to arousing. It is a very kinky story, with some great erotic detail, and some really sexy (and realistic) dialogue.
Shemale Strip Search is a similar story of being surprised by an authority figure, and even if it is a bit more clichéd, it still makes for a fun read. Here we have a young man living the dream of being part of a rock star entourage, which quickly turns into a nightmare when someone tips off the TSA to his drug smuggling. The strip and cavity search is surprisingly erotic, and I liked that Frank was genuinely confused and frightened by it the situation, but a natural when it came time to submit to the beautiful agent who is oh-so-happy to trade his cherry for his freedom.
After two stories of femdom erotica, A Little Something Extra is something of a genuine surprise. While it still has its erotic moments, this is a happily-ever-after romance, with a young businessman who falls for the new girl at work, and then has to sort out his feelings for her when he discovers she is transgender. It is such a sweet story, with some lovely scenes and wonderful dialogue between Greg and Jocelyn, but it also has a bit of an edge. Every romance needs tension, and here it comes from a particularly transphobic/homophobic coworker who tries to drive a wedge between them, feeding Greg's own self-doubt, but who ultimately serves to bring them together.
The start of a new series of interconnected stories from Stephen T.

Grey, Bratva Sissy Slut Capture Moscow! follows up on the sissy auction scenario first introduced in Sissy Sluts Claimed (not that you need to have read that to enjoy this). This time, having seen how successful trafficking in willing sissy sex slaves can be, the Russian mafia wants to clam that action for their own.
While it may be a bit of a stretch to suggest that such t-girls are 'lucky' to be kidnapped, and a tad fantastic to portray them as being instantly delighted with their new situation, it is a very sexy fantasy to consider. My only problem with the story is that it never gets into the level of detail I would have liked. It is some sexy fun, but I would have loved to spend more time on their training, and would have really enjoyed seeing the auction take place.

This is a sexy sci-fi tale involving an inter-dimensional portal, an alternate Earth, and a cross-dimensional romance.
After serving as a human guinea pig in his own experiment, Richard finds himself on a world that looks very much like our own. The only immediate difference is that all the of women are incredibly beautiful. His initial explorations of this world, with conversations that serve to uncover its unique historical and cultural twists, is some of the best writing Stephen has done.
As the cover blurb reveals, this is an Earth where 'natural' women are kept segregated for breeding purposes, while genetically engineered futanari share the world with the Alpha Males they so happily serve. It is a very kinky book, with some exciting sex scenes, but it is also a very romantic one. I loved how the relationship between Richard and Patricia developed, and could not have asked for a happier ending.
