Vol. 1: ★★★★★
Vol. 2: ★★★

This is such a gem of a graphic novel series. And even though I didn’t love this one as much as Volume One, I still really enjoyed this installment and completely recommend it to adults who are interested in the BDSM lifestyle. Seriously, this is filled with very mature themes and explicit sexual content, so use caution if that’s not something you’re looking for.

Especially since this volume really touches upon the misconceptions about BDSM and the stereotypes that people

I honestly think I'm falling in love with this series. Not only is it an amazingly realistic and responsible representation of BDSM but it is also a romance story which I am fully immersed in and care about.

This volume was my favourite one yet. We see Ally and Lisa take a few big steps towards furthering their relationship and we also see a ton of beautiful BDSM lingerie which I have to say was pretty stylish!
We meet yet more characters who want to learn more about BDSM, and we also discuss th

I'm really amazed at how well the author writes the feelings and internal struggles of the characters, every single one. I wasn't expecting the story to be this outstanding. I knew his artwork was going to be great, but I'm just enamored with the story!

I've been writing reviews for this comic for the past couple of days now, just because I can. If you haven't read part 1 and part 2 you should probably do so before reading this, otherwise it won't make much sense.

I read a review that said that this series is a "realistic and responsible representation of BDSM" and responsible it is, which you know, is a good thing, especially after the whole 50 Shades misinformation galore. However, when we're 300 pages into the story, we don't really need to b

This series is addictive and, if you read this, get yourself ready to tuck into books 4 and 5. I couldn't stop once I started.

We're getting an extra peek into additional characters here that will feed into ramping up the drama for the next books.

Another great volume! In this one we got to see Ally's and Lisa's big step in their relationship (can I just say how ADORABLE they are?) and how other people portray fetishes which I think is really important. I have to say that some stereotypes that were mentioned- I used to believe in them myself. It's great so find something that will both be just a great time, and actually teach me something I didn't know.
Putting aside all of the sex and BDMS, this graphic novel series is simply very enjoyab

The third Sunstone volume, and the third thing I've read by someone named "Shinez" (or however that name was spelled). Though not the third thing I've read by Šejić (though most of the stuff I've read that had Šejić on the cover listed him as the artist not the writer). And that's one of those things that came as something of a shock to me.

There I was, years ago, happily poking around on DeviantArt, putting my own art up (I probably have something around 200 pieces up, but that's not important,

I can't even... My feels... My heart... I love this series too much!!! I read this volume online as Sejic posted the pages and reading them in paperback still gives me the same glee as the first time. That's saying a lot for someone who doesn't often repeat reads (and I've read all of the online pages more than once).

Sunstone brings together a lot of the things I love, and has taught me about things I would otherwise be ignorant of. It's enlightening, absolutely delightful, and a must-read for

Title: Sunstone Volume 3
Author: Stjepan Sejic
Genre: Graphic novel
Rating: ****
Review: As I started the third volume of Sunstone I couldn’t wait to see where Sejic would take Ally and Lisa’s relationship after the dramatic events that took place in volume 2. We re-join Ally and Lisa a little after the events of Volume 2 as the two attempt to further their relationship.
I learned in this novel that in each volume Sejic looks at a different aspect of the BDSM community. In Volume 1it was t

Guess who became addicted to this series, me!

I can't stop. The last time I became so utterly engrossed in a series it was French Kissing Series Box Set: Seasons 1-3 by Harper Bliss.

After reading vol 1 yesterday and vol 2 this morning, I decided to just purchase vol 3, 4 and 5 in one go. I just finished vol 3 and boy am I glad I decided to get the rest of this incredibly sexy, funny and sweet series. This time the author gave us a little backstory on Cassie and Tom, how they met and how they even

The third volume of Stjepan Sejic's Sunstone continues the story of domme Ally and sub Lisa's relationship as well as featuring several other characters who play a part in their story. One of the best and most surprising aspects of Sunstone is it's not the pornotastic cringe inducing affair you might expect from a story of lesbians in a BDSM oriented relationship written and illustrated by a guy.

There's a lot that can be said about how poorly sexuality and women are portrayed in sequential art.

I utterly love this series. The relationship between the two girls is truly sweet, honest, and utterly believable. The portrayal of the bdsm lifestyle is positive, truthful, and accurate. I find it a bit odd that everyone in the friend group ends up having some connection to BDSM. My one and only complaint is that bisexuality doesn't ever come up as an option. The girls both go through intense anxiety and questioning periods contemplating whether or not they're gay- despite having previous relat ...more

It's crazy how much I'm invested in Ally and Lisa's story. I love this series way too much.

Sunstone brings together a lot of the things that I love. And has taught me about things I would otherwise be ignorant or completely clueless of.
It's enlightening, absolutely wonderful, and a must-read for anyone who has an open enough mind.

The world needs more creators like Sejic who can handle controversial/delicate content with respect and charm, and do it while telling an endearing story with very h

I got this series as a recommendation in one of my Advent entries last Christmas. It was only Volume 1 actually, but trust me when I say that you need to go through the whole series not just stop at it. I kinda did at first. I read Volume 1 and stopped, but got back to it now as curiosity was still back in a corner of my mind. And now, after the first three volumes I really want to find out what happens next and believe it or not it's not the main characters that I'm mostly interested about.

It keeps getting more and more interesting.

What I like the most - even if sometimes they get boring - are all the inner monologues the two protagonists are conducting with themselves. The doubts they have, their worries... They all seem very real.

This is what is incredible: I mean, the author is a male and yet is able to describe two women's sex life in a veritable way. It's not exaggerating, nor is he depicting a male's wet dream. (OR maybe he is depicting a male's wet dream only I'm to cretin

Waaaah ! I just binged-read all the volumes so I can't really give any specific about each volume today. I will do it next time I read them (and there will be one I can tell )
To sum-up :
The art is awesome.
The main characters are so sweet.
There is no porn vibes thank you sweet god.
It's sensual, tender and beautiful and I'm so in love with all of it ^^.

This volume right here was PERFECT. So far the best of the series, easily!

Volume 3 starts out with Anne designing a tattoo for Cassie on her back. While looking for inspiration she looks up examples of BDSM and gets real interested, at the same time, conflicted in what she sees. After it cuts to Lisa and Cassie talking about the tattoo and Lisa just getting off work. Lisa gets stopped by a co-worker she can not stand and feels judged by her cause of her secret relationship with Ally. When Lisa's

The parts of this that were good were great - namely the chemistry between Ally and Lisa and the development of their relationship. That being said the bad parts were a real drag in this volume. The story kept jumping to various secondary characters and storylines that seem shoehorned in to create room for spinoffs. I was also disturbed by a scene between Ally and Alan that seemed to be written as "playful shenanigans between two longtime friends" by seemed more like a violation at best and assa ...more

The previous two volumes were a delight to read, and the third installment was no different. Furthering their exploration in BDSM, Dom-Ally and her submissive, Lisa are a lovely couple, depicting the boundaries and often taboo stereotypes associated with bondage and relationships. More importantly, this tasteful graphic novel explores the world in which they inhabit, and provides an honesty and heartfelt approach to BDSM and the acts the couples utilize.

A wave of good storytelling carried me through volume 2 and halfway through volume 3 but then I started to lose interest. The exposition disguised as normal conversation gets to be a bit much, though I'm still on the fence about it because I'm learning a lot about this particular community. Still feeling stretched a bit regarding the subject matter. I'm just not sure morality is as simple as doing what you feel is right and not over thinking it,as Alan suggests to Ally at one point. I realize no ...more

Another great addition to the series. Continuing to look at Lisa and Ally's growing relationship, peppered with humour and plenty of sweet, tender moments. And not actually that much sexy stuff. The side characters are also starting to be fleshed out, as we spend a bit more time with them, and they get to know Lisa. Laughed out loud a couple times, too, which doesn't happen as much as one might think when I'm reading. Great artwork, too.

Funny, romantic and relatable.

Vol: 3 continues in the direction as Vol: 2. A slow buildup of an intimate relationship between two very human characters. In short, If you liked the previous volumes you'll like the third one as well. Not much ells to say other than that the art continues to be of superb quality and that i'll be looking forward to the next one.
