    I've been a long time supporter of this project, even when it was still in it's budding 'rough version' stage. But as Eleyne and Yasmin have written of my favourite music genre and band, it's physically impossible for me not to like what they have written. They really would have had to write it in a very bad way for me to criticize them, but no. The book is well written indeed and keeps your attention in a smart way. They paint the picture of the band members so well it's hard to believe it's just their imagination that makes the Julian Twist commit all the naughty and inspiring things. Their imaginary dirty adventures make me think that such things could have happened in reality in Julian Twist long career. After all you don't become a rock star to lead a life of a monk. My own 'love button' goes to the person of Tony. I'd do the same things with him as Eleyne does, though after my treatment he would have to regenerate for the whole day (lol, I like to dominate), but I equally adore the other band members as well. I can easily imagine myself being Yasmin, Melisa or Babette... You see, you don't refuse Julian Twist... I basically agree with most of the reviews here, it's really a 'must read' for all the metal fans, and I wonder if all the future readers will guess the real identity of Julian Twist. It's not obvious, but the hints are there, cunningly planted. And IMO, the shifting point of view in narration, the point of view from each of the girls is also what gives the novel such an impact. If it was told by one person only, or in 3rd person, the story would get castrated. It wouldn't be the same. It would be a book for fans of only one Julian Priest member, now as it is, fans of Colin, Tony, Jim and Ted have each something themselves.

    I thought I knew what to expect having read the first part of these naughty adventures, and also having read the original version. But this has really exceeded my expectations. This book rocks, Colin, Tony, Jim, Ted and the guests rock. The addition of the slightly kinkier mood really works well, it spices all the things up and at the same time is probably not too uncomfortable for the real band (if they read the book). I simply love it. Continue like this, please.
