Storm Ryder writes explicit sexual fiction set in SciFi & Fantasy settings. He believes that, just because it's smut, that doesn't mean it can't be well-written, & populated with fully-formed & relatable characters. But don't let his clean prose and proper grammar fool you -- when it comes to the sex, he lays it all out in graphic, lusty detail. If you hunger for fantastical explicit porno that's written to more than a high-school level, Storm Ryder is your man.

There aren't many books around yet in the emerging genre of Steampunk, and Steampunk erotica in particular. It was with great excitement thus that I found this little book. on
The book is a collection of five stories. The first, "The Education of Cousette" being the longest, and probably the best. The setting is exotic, the Steampunk elements are all there, even though they get pushed a little into the background as the story goes on, and the characters are charming and well described.
The other stories vary in quality and style. Some, as "Donnia Endangered" contain some strong elements that might not appeal to everyone, not even the average reader of erotica. It is, however a good story nonetheless. Others, like "Magdelangie in the Horse" show proof of the author's talent when it comes to inventing the right settings and devices to give a steampunk girl her pleasure.
All stories might come across as slightly male-written, if you get what I mean here, even though the girls get what they want in the end, no doubt about that.
For readers who are interested in Steampunk and/or erotica in a pseudo-Victorian setting, this is definitely worth a read. So why only three stars then? Only because of the varying quality of the stories, at least two of them would be a four, so take it as a 3.5.
