I will answer your question the same way I answered another question about the first book.

This is NOT BDSM. Where did you read this book being about BDSM? Where did you read this book (or 50 shades for that matter) to be a BDSM manual?

Both books are works of fiction. Sleeping beauty being a Fantasy novel and the 50 shades books works of fiction.

To stick to the Sleeping beauty novels. The characters in these books are slaves, not submissives with a contract. And that is exactly where your mind goes wrong. You are looking for contracts for consent. But again, these people are slaves. Slaves don't have contracts, safe words or rights. Also, this entire book takes place in a complete fantasy world, where no one ever even heard of the word BDSM.

As for the rape scenes. There are people in this real world with rape fantasies. I don't see how one could ever consent to rape, as rape is typically non consensual, and if you consent to being raped, I don't think it's really rape. But that aside, again it's an erotic fantasy novel. In stories like this, things can happen that shouldn't happen in the real world. And no one, human or otherwise has been harmed during the writing of this book.

My question though for you is. Why do you want to enjoy a book, if you clearly don't agree with the content? There's plenty of more realistic BDSM novels out there without rape. In which they do have contracts and safe words. But by the looks of it, you don't like those either?(less)

High Fantasy, Graphically Sexual, and Exquisitely Detailed… I feel that in this day and age, there are few taboo texts which still exist to embarrass the reader who unapologetically devoured the pages without regard to the outside world… But the Classic Erotic Trilogy of Sleeping Beauty comes as close as possible to that point…

Many readers detest these books... I enjoy them!

Stockholm syndrome on steroids and BDSM on crack. That sums up this book nicely.
It still fascinating to read why the princes/princesses accept and even come to like their daily punishment.
I have known BDSM for a few years but there is not one person who can put up with years of degradation and humiliation every second of your daily life. In some ways this is truly a fairy tale - for pervs but still a fairy tale ;p

So I bought the whole series, and after hating the first one, I thought I might try the second seeing I spent money on it.

NOPE NOPE NOPE. Screw the money, not reading the third one.

The worse thing about this is that somehow Beauty and the other characters have absolutely NO PERSONALITY. They're just shells and dolls for other people to enjoy. Which is frankly sickening. I mean, how are you supposed to like a book if the mc doesn't even have a personality? (view spoiler)

Surprisingly, this becomes not the tale of just Beauty, but of Beauty AND Tristan. Albeit, I wouldn't participate in many of these activities, it is quite arousing in it's psychology of the need to be challenged in subjugation and the raw acceptance in the pain of arousal and "punishment".

I can't even give this book a rating, it really does not deserve even 1 star.

Let's go over what this book has to offer:
Prostitution (Offering your slaves bodies for money is, in fact, prostitution, and pimping)
A strange form of pseudo-beastiality (They don't have sex with animals, but Anne has them dress up as such, which is just weird.)
Sword handles
More rape.

Alright, Anne, now you're really starting to piss me off. Is this magic little world free from STD'S AND pregnancy? The idea of sex in th

This book was freaking weird. And not weird in a good way. Anne Rice, though I have a sort of love/hate relationship with her, has a sick and twisted mind. It's a very uncomfortable place to be in. I didn't read this because it was porn. I get bored of porn easily. I read this because I heard about how freakingly strange this was, and this was Anne Rice as well. I didn't expect g

I liked this one much more than the first book, or maybe I should say I liked Beauty much more in this one. Here, we see her exhibit some spirit, occasionally rebelling in order to be given harsher punishments. I could relate more to this side of her. She decided not to always be obedient, perhaps knowing that by pushing back she would reach a greater level of submission than if she meekly obeyed every order. This fascinated me as much as it disturbed me, yet ultimately made me adore her more fo ...more
Despite plodding through this series, I am intrigued by the story. It really is fetish!porn (I used to say "well-written" before realizing what I really meant was "literate"), don't fool yourself. But it's so exploratory and so uninhibited that it demands your attention.

I'm actually torn over my rating: I enjoyed reading this book a bit more than I did the first one but the direction of the story in the introductory novel was so much more interesting to me. I do like how Anne Rice has developed

It's probably best to start of the review of this, the second book in the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy, with a section from my review of the first book:

"In order to read the Sleeping Beauty series, you mush set aside ALL of your preconceived notions about sex, sexuality, consensual sex-- all if it should have no bearing on this story. This is not "your" story, it is the fictitious account of Sleeping Beauty and the Prince who awakened her (at least in the beginning, after which it becomes a story of

Now this is what I'm talking about! Yes indeed! Now I see what all the fuss is about!

First of all this should've been titled Beauty & Tristan's "Punishment" *eyebrow wiggle*. And second of all, let me just say (rather crudely) fuck that castle nonsense! The village is where it's at! As much as I cringed & at times gutted it out through the first one, I was really, really hoping this one wouldn't be like the first. Well, this one was scorching hot!

This was a hot fantasy to be honest.

Not all of the kink is my kink, but it was strangely arousing to read.

This is porn, but decent porn, not pretending to be anything else.
This sequel to "The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty", the first of Anne Rice's elegantly written volumes of erotica, continues her explicit, teasing exploration of the psychology of human desire.

Beauty, having indulged in a secret and forbidden infatuation with the rebellious slave Prince Tristan, is sent away from the Satyricon-like world of the castle. Once again Rice's fabulous tale of pleasure and pain dares to explore the most primal and well-hidden desires of the human heart.

Beauty's Punishment is the second book in Anne Rice's Sleeping Beauty trilogy; I'd be lying if I didn't mention that I'm relieved that I only have one more to go. As much as I have an open mind, these stories are even a little much for me. This is not the Sleeping Beauty most of us knew an loved as children. She lives now in a much darker world where sexual depravity, slavery, and even beastiality are key components. I had written in my review of The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty that I was curiou ...more
I think this is a great continuation from the first novel and although I love all three at times this would have to be my favourite. The fact that it offers a new experience for the slaves to be in makes it seem far more brutal and far more interesting. I think it helps to add more depth and then there is the introduction of a new character and the story being told from their perspective as well as Beauty’s. I quite like the new perspective and seeing as it is a different slave to what Beauty is ...more

Weird. Smut. But I admit, I read all three.

It's been a few years since I read this so I was tempted to give it only two stars but after some consideration, decided to bump it to three.

The whole premise was seductively intriguing. After finding the first book at the tiny public library I secretely hoped this and the third were available as well. There they were. On the very bottom shelf probably more read than anyone would care to admit. My bet is none of the librarians ever bothered to pick it

I thought this series was an imaginative take on the sleeping beauty fairy tale. It is so dark. The hard core sex element is not for the faint of heart.

The version of the book I read - I heard to be precise - begins with an introduction that clarifies the writer's intentions. This was one of the reasons I enjoyed it more than the first, but of course not the only one. The main reason is that the book seems to reflect these intentions better. In the first book there was the element of violent erotic fantasy, but on several points things ran out of bounds, and in the end what I read was a description of abuse. This book is quite different in spit ...more

I would like to start by saying that I adore Rice's writing style. She uses words in a way that few authors have the capacity to understand, let alone mimic. I also find it impressive that she did such an outstanding job on this novel, given that she wrote it for an academic degree, and that the subject matter is by and large misunderstood in mainstream society.

With a nod to Rice's abilities, I will now move to my second point: This book depicts a Grimm-infused view of BDSM. For those who do not

"Beauty's Punishment" by Anne Rice is a sequel from book one: The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty" where we find it is another 'steamy erotica' read of how 'Beauty and Prince Tristan' survive in 'The Village' that is told to you in first and third person.

Now, let me stop here and say if you haven't read the first book and not open to erotica, bdsm, fantasy, fairy tales, sexuality ...

I'm honestly not sure what I'm reading anymore. The writing is very eloquent, elegant even, and I suppose that's one of the reasons why Anne Rice is one of the most beloved writers of our time. However, I can't say I've enjoyed this book. The BDSM scenes are just getting way too brutal and they were definitely out of my comfort zone.

Another aspect of this book I had some trouble with was Tristan's POV. Some of the chapters are written from his POV and I didn't understand the logic behind it. Th
I rated the 1st book in this series 5 stars and this one was 4 or 5 stars for me as well. When the story was good, it was so, so good. However, there were times I thought the book dragged just a bit. I would have liked getting into the character's heads a bit more. Maybe it was just my mood. In any event, it is a fun fantasy read and I loved the world that Beauty and her friends found themselves in. There were sexual shenanigans going on everywhere and most were related to a fantasy form of BDSM ...more

This was my favorite of the three, I found the finale very unsatisfying.

The first time I read it was was SHOCKED, I tell you, shocked! But as the years go by it gets less shocking. I was also shocked when a friend came over one day and saw it on my shelf and she exclaimed, "Oh! I love those books!" At least it took away some of my youth's embarrassment at her focusing at it on my bookshelf. Years later, it was hilarious to me when a co-worker at Macy's was reading it in the break room and someo

This trilogy was my introduction into the BDSM World of reading. I absolutely loved it. Being raised a good catholic girl, I was naive to anything sexual, but this book opened my eyes to many possibilities and to the different aspects of sexuality. I read the entire series in two days.
The books can be a bit extreme at times, but whats the purpose of fantasy if you can't push the envelope.

Did I write this is the most erotic novel I have ever read. I meant for this series. And even this is one of the most weird twisted sexy novel I think I will ever read. I am looking forward to read the next novel. So that I can know what happens with Beauty !

This second one was just as hot for me. I learned so many lovely taboo sexual acts that a 15 year old would never learn otherwise. Was this book subversive for me, probably. Still, I loved every sex scene, even if I felt awkward about the m/m scenes.
