Any sufficiently advanced technology will appear as magic. Thank you Arthur Clark. This story, and this review is for not only this set of chapters, rather the whole thing, the three books that preceded.
I like magic, I like science fiction, I like sex with multiple partners (I used to anyway, now...) I like aliens from other worlds and I like sex with multiple partners, especially underage multiple partners. Of course I am 67 and think 50 is underage, but let us not go there.
The story is well plotted, well written, and well told. I find the characters to be engrossing, the premise to be ridiculous (which is why like doovers, and the sex to be entertaining, if not riveting after the third book. What the author has done is lessened the sex and moved the plot along while developing the story, exactly as it should be in a such a long story told over so far, a period of three years. Over a period of three years the author has matured as a writer; he started out good and got better.
Like any sci-fi story involving princesses and technology so advanced it seems like magic one must suspend disbelief. Actually considering some of the stroke stories on SOL it requires less of a suspension of disbelief than a mother walking in on her husband fucking her fourteen year old daughter and stripping and joining them rather than killing him.
Another plus is that new chapters are being posted regularly. A wonderful edition to the site, go forth and read.
