Review by: Tatiana Lee on Sep. 11, 2016 :
Due to the sensitive nature of the book’s theme, i.e. a slave girl being trained to be the perfect sexual servant, the storyline for “Slave to the Empire” could easily have gotten very uncomfortable, very fast. Thankfully, it instead plays out deliciously well by taking Elara’s role as a sexual slave to the dominating humans around her and turning it into a form of empowerment. Thanks to her secret magical training, she is not only able to garner great satisfaction from the numerous sexual acts she engages in but she is also able to use her special skills to secretly bend each of her partners to her will, even as she maintains a façade of meek subservience.

“Slave to the Empire” is a deliciously decadent treat for fans who have always felt that their high fantasy adventures could do with a bit more steamy eroticism. The sex scenes are hot, enticingly detailed, extremely arousing; all of which makes for highly enjoyable read with plenty of potential storylines to look forward to in future volumes. Add in a lot of detailed world building with the wide variety of character types and this novella could easily have been just a straight fantasy novel, but thanks to the author’s unique vision, it is the perfect blend of both genres in one delightfully naughty little package.

This book is a good start to the series, though they seem to get better (and sexier) as they go. The main character gets more powerful, and you get a better picture of the depraved society she's living in.

This series is less pure smut than the author's Spider Queen books, which may be better or worse depending on your preferences. I happen to like both.

Review by: Jeriah on July 18, 2016 :
Decent enough story, if rather short. The characters largely seemed a bit one dimensional, each defined by exactly one major character trait, and there was only the smallest amount of character development to be seen in later chapters. Unfortunately, the only development was in the main character and can be summed up entirely as going from "I'm told I should do this but am unsure about it" to "I'm told I should do this and am happy about it." I felt much more drawn to the supporting cast through most of the book than the main characters whom I ostensibly should have cared for. I found Grand Duchess Kathryn Farrow to be the most interesting, though still one dimensional, character in the book. Grand Duchess Luriel was also shaping up to be interesting and was said to have multiple layers, though this was hardly shown. Sadly, with their parts played, I doubt either will have much of a role in the following books.

The sexual aspects of the book were prevalent but subdued and well written enough to flow with the story and not feel tacked on. The graphic level of the book was tasteful enough to read and feel aroused without it ever degenerating into common smut, which is a very fine line to walk.

My main complaint of the book is the numerous misspellings, poor grammar, completely missing words (usually indefinite articles, but rather often important words, such as the main verb), and the use of words that were just plain wrong, often seemingly a result of using an automated spellcheck and never actually proofreading the text.

Though this one was free, the next three in the books in this series are all a few dollars apiece. If they are of similar length and quality as this one, I do not believe that I will be purchasing any of them. I finished this book in less than an hour, which is rather short. Compared to the cost of most paperbacks, paying more for significantly less material of poorer quality is a bit of a turn off for me.
