Publisher's Summary

The erotic Sleeping Beauty trilogy now continues with a fourth novel by master storyteller and best-selling author of Prince Lestat, Anne Rice, writing as A. N. Roquelaure.
Mega-best-selling author Annie Rice returns to where she left off in Beauty's Release with the disappearance of Queen Eleanor in Bellavalten. Now, 20 years after they were forced to leave the kingdom to return to their homeland, Beauty and her husband, Laurent, agree to travel back as its king and queen, to uphold the ways of complete sensual surrender with a twist: They now insist on voluntary servitude in Bellavalten.
Countless eager princes, princesses, lords, ladies, and common folk journey to Beauty's new kingdom, where she and her husband awaken their domain, ushering in a new era of desire, longing, and sexual ecstasy. Provocative and stirring, Rice's imaginative retelling of the Sleeping Beauty myth will be hailed by her longtime fans and new listeners of erotica just discovering the novels. This audiobook is intended for mature audiences.

Not as good as the original

It wasn't bad but it truly wasn't as good as the original trilogy. It's nice to hear what happened with the characters but it was very tame comparably.

If you listened to the first three.....

Would you listen to Beauty's Kingdom again? Why?

If you listened to the first three in this series, you should listen to this. Remember this book takes place 20 years after the ending of the trilogy. Many things and people have changed. Even though Beauty is only 35, or 36 years old and still exquisite, there are many characters being brought back and some new ones to learn about.

What did you like best about this story?

The changes that are brought about in "Beauties Kingdom", It brings back a time of glory and a better hand of safety for those who CHOOSE to be SLAVES. In order to understand this book, you really have had to listen to the first three. (not abridged).

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to several of the narrators and they all did a fine job in this book.

Any additional comments?

This book is not like the first three, it has a different slant, and it is changing the way the country is being run. Beauty sees a way to revive the land and bring people back. It works, and she also finds out that she can get what she wants as well and still be Queen.
