Meet Caprice, better known as the villainess Capricious Whim....
Caprice is a woman who works hard and plays hard. She's a veteran villain of Imperial City, and what you might call a maladjusted individual. While she plots to achieve her own goals, she's forced to take whatever jobs may come along, and any unintended consequences from them!
The heroes don't always win in this world, but being a villain has its own unique set of problems.

The Queen of Swords

Any additional comments?

It is a very fast moving story.. Caprice is a villain, and she has no care at killing anyone who gets in her way, even when those killings are not necessary. This is not a story of an antihero but an anti villain. Totally enjoyed the story

Fun, sexy, with costumes and weapons!

This is a sexy supervillain story set in the fictional metropolis of Imperial City. Caprice (Capricious Whim) is very good at what she does but even she can be bested sometimes. In this tale, she will choose to trade certain favors for info and more. Will her evil plots be thwarted, or merely delayed as she dallies over an evening of pleasure?

This is one of the funnest sexy eroticas I have listened to in some time. I love the supervillain theme with all the costumes, super powers, and characters with loose morals. Caprice herself has the dual powers of telekinesis and telepathy, though each has it’s limits. Couple those powers with her swordsmanship, and you have a formidable foe. She’s not above a little murder and mayhem if it suits her needs or if someone tries to double cross her. I love her practical take on wearing Kevlar when needed and always going armed.

The main plot is pretty straight forward. She meets her ‘work’ associate Michael at a night club and they go meet Harry Sidowski together for this possible job. Michael is a unique villain in that his body has two souls – Michael’s and a vampire’s. After talking with Harry, they team up to take on the job, which they do but Caprice loses her sword and is injured. Later on, she will go on the hunt for her sword and more.

While the plot does move along pretty darn quickly, the author does let us linger over the sex scenes. Most of the scenes are energetic but pretty straight forward – one female, one male, various positions. Yet even though they are basic, they are written very well. In fact, I was surprised steam wasn’t coming off my audio player! There is one domination scene (with Caprice doing the dominating) that was OK for me. Caprice’s character wasn’t as excited about it as the other participant, so there wasn’t as much passion as with the other scenes. I really liked that the men in the story varied in height, weight, physical fitness, etc. Over all, it is a sexy, fun story that involves costumes, sexytimes, and a touch of violence.

I received a copy of this audiobook at no cost from the author (via Audiobook Boom) in exchange for an honest review.

The Narration: Rebecca Wolfe had the perfect voice for Caprice – certain, determined, sexy. She did a good job with the various male voices as well, keeping them distinct. She never faltered during the sexytimes scenes, sounding enthusiastic and natural.

"It was the best game of all."

Any additional comments?

With just the right sufficiency of an action story to showcase the erotica, this witty tale of the dark side is colourfully well written. Told in the first person from the perspective of Candice, an enhanced and charismatically beautiful woman who, amongst other attributes, can read minds and fly, the listener is treated to her thoughts, deeds and, er, emotions. The characterisations are great, the descriptions envigorating.

Rebecca Wolfe's sexy, warm and sardonic voicing captures the personality of the heroine villainess with a lust for life, killing and sexual extravagances perfectly. She is Candice in all of her flamboyant glory. Not a book for everyone, with mature scenes of explicit sex and violence, but Alana Melos brings an imaginative vibrance to her protagonists which makes it an easy book to enjoy.

My thanks to the rights holder for gifting me a complementary copy of The Queen of Swords, via Audiobook Boom. I am looking forward to the next.

A little weird, but enjoyable enough!

What did you like best about The Queen of Swords? What did you like least?

I liked the fact that there was a good balance between the erotica and the plot and world building. I wish there had been a tiny bit more humor in the story.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I'd have made Caprice a tiny bit less villainous.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Probably the bit at the start where Caprice was introducing herself.

Did The Queen of Swords inspire you to do anything?

Not really, but it is not like I was bored while listening to the story so that still counts as a win!

Any additional comments?

I'm not a big listener to erotica and was mainly sucked into this one because I was hoping for a mix of superpowers and romance. What I got was more sex and superpowers. I was happy with the plot, but left wishing for a bit more romance!
