Flesh Fantasy (MF) by Maya DeLeina (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
Categories: Contemporary, Paranormal, Vampires/Werewolves

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

I’m not normally a massive fan of erotic literature – with my back it gives me ideas above my station – but as I’d heard lots of good things about Maya DeLeina from a number of sources and as the book’s in the vampire genre, I thought I’d check Flesh Fantasy out for myself and see what all the fuss was about. And I’m really glad that I did: as the characters say in the novel ‘Flesh Fantasy… now that sounds like a book that would catch my attention!’ It is indeed an excellent book. No one could deny that there is a good deal of sex it, and explicit stuff too, but it is never gratuitous and is always beautifully written. Ms DeLeina’s prose is muscular and her characters are acutely observed and sensitively delineated. Their dialogue is taut and naturalistic, never forced. The plot is strong, inventive and well thought out – I won’t spoil it for future readers by revealing the twists and turns, it’s well worth discovering them for yourself. Various people have noted that this book gives a fresh take on vampire fiction and that bears repeating as it is to be welcomed warmly. Word on the street is that there may be some short stories on the way – I for one hope so and I can’t wait for the next full length novel in the Ambrose Heights to come out. As the saying goes, you get plenty of bang for your buck with Maya DeLeina. She is clearly a writer with a very rare talent and I would have no hesitation in recommended Flesh Fantasy extremely highly.
