Publisher's Summary

In a fantasy world where male/male lust fuels Night Magic, Prince Kenet lives a sheltered life. Isolated from the war that threatens the kingdom, he and his whipping boy Jorin are of age, but still sneak forbidden pleasures in their bed at night. When a dark mage tries to bespell Kenet into sexual submission, the prince and his boy are thrust into the world of intrigue, sex, and war. Volume One of The Prince's Boy collects chapters 1 through 56 of this wildly popular gay erotic web serial by Cecilia Tan. Begun on July 29, 2009, chapters were posted weekly, following the adventures of Prince Kenet and his whipping boy, Jorin. Drawing on complex themes of dominance and submission, the need for secrecy in a world where homosexuality is not accepted, and the intertwining of sex with magic, Tan weaves a complex, sex-filled adventure that is part "Three Musketeers" and part "Claiming of Sleeping Beauty."

    "An Erotic Serial With Sex in Every Chapter"

    The audio version of this book jumps directly into the narration, and is missing the author's preface from the paperback which introduces the reader to the concept of the serial. The Prince's Boy was originally published one chapter per week over the course of two years. Each week the protagonists are thrust into an erotic or sexual situation that pushes the quest and adventure plot forward. Unlike a novel, where the flow of the plot ebbs and surges, a serial charges forward every week with a new sex scene. The result is a LOT of sex, with erotic plot twists coming fast and furious. Some might feel this is "too much sex." All we can say is it is the intent to have a sex scene every chapter, so pace yourselves!

    "Suffers from it's serialisation"

    This book was originally published in weekly short story increments. I think it suffers because of it. The sex is overt, bold but way way too much. It's original episodic format would tone this aspect down and make it more palatable, but as a novel it doesn't work.

    That said, the story line, which is good, doesn't wrap up in this book, but ends in a cliff hanger, does make me want to buy the next book. Just not now. Not for a while I think.

    I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."

    "Makes the Unfathomable Seam Reasonable"

    The Prince’s Boy takes place in a world where male/male lust feeds magical powers. Wizards are very busy in the bedroom.

    "Prince Kenet" seeks pleasure with his whipping boy, Jorin, while a war that threatens the kingdom swirls around them. "Seroi," the dark magician, tries to bespell the Prince and enslave him as his submissive lover, as well as take over the kingdom.

    The Prince and his “boy” struggle to stay together—can love overcome magical chains?

    The Three Musketeers meets The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty.

    "This one is just bad."
    What disappointed you about The Prince's Boy, Volume 1?

    The story was ridiculous. There were some good ideas, issues of magic and corruption, but none of them were handled well. They were all just used as thinly veiled excuses for more sex. And don't get me wrong, I love smut in my book. But here it's just over used and outrageous. The characters are laughable. Their actions so removed from what we are told their motivations are that they're either the two stupidest men in the world or so unaware of themselves that that it's honestly unbelievable. The book probably would have done much better if it hadn't been written in alternating first person perspective. The characters are too shallow and ill conceived to stand up to the point of view. The poor development wouldn't have been so painful in third person, maybe. The fact that this is meant to be a society where homosexuality is entirely banned and almost unthinkable and yet every single male character in the book (and there are no female characters) has sex with one of the protagonists. EVERY ONE. The author has no other ideas for how to handle any situations that don't involve sex, coerced sex, magically necessary sex or out and out rape. I'm not joking, almost every chapter is about one of the main characters having sex and usually not by their free choice. The whole plot reads like a game where the author tries to figure out new ways to get these two faithful lovers to sleep with everyone else in the world. I can't imagine how anyone takes this book seriously.

    "A little lacking"

    I think the book could have been really good had it had more substance.... Hot Sex in a book always works ,but It can't be all there is ... in this case thats about all there was ...Too bad the idea for the book was really good and could have gone a lot of places.
