Only this isn't a stab 'em in the heart sacrifice but a sexual orgy one, death isn't guaranteed it's more of a risky side effect of being impaled on an enormous stone-shifter phallus. Mila is nothing if not determined, and sneaky to boot. She never lets life, an ancient parasitic infection or the Andurian's get her down. And the fact that she falls madly in lust with an ancient and almost immortal being, one made of stone and twice her size, just adds to the fun. This is a steamy and down right naughty read that dabbles on the edge of consent, with it's lust inducing basht and manipulation of Mila. The sister, Tiana, turns out to be a real piece of work. If Zarblu carries through on his promise of gifting his sneaky and slightly untrustworthy cyborg assassin, Ledderik, with both genetalia AND Tiana, then she will definitely get her just desserts (and a lot more to boot). Steel A cyborg with a massive, multi-faceted appendage, a literally horny half orc-half shag in rut and a princess torn between being a good girl and following her heart. OK, perhaps not her heart, it was much more likely her libido she was listening to. Well when you see that as a cast of characters in a Cari Silverwood book only a fool would not be jumping up and down begging for it, *double entendre intended*. Oh my, this didn't disappoint. We had both the complicated 'romance' between Hoss, Baz and Ember, with all it's dubious consent, pheromones and sneaky programming. We also had political cyber manoeuvrings and underhand manipulations based on prophesies. This isn't your usual 'throw away' shagged-by-the-alien romance. There are hidden depths and convoluted plot twists that take what could otherwise be an alien porn read, and make it into something so much more. Have I mentioned yet just how much FUN this book is? Every part of the story is underpinned with wit and humour. The musings of each character not only allow us to understand them but also made me snigger like an adolescent. Blade This author claims she doesn't intentionally include humour in her books. The sheer fact that one of the supporting characters is a sarcastic, talking sword tells you that his book is going to be great fun. We first met Ledderik, a cyborg assassin, in Prey , however Blade can easily be read as a stand alone, anything you need to know is included in this book. He has lost his way and signed over his body to the Last Of Life organisation, only he finds a new purpose just as his time runs out. That purpose is Thorn, a genetic disaster waiting to happen. What follows is a kinky adventure involving lots of planets,the borrowing of various alien bodies and a lot of shooting (both of guns AND other things ). This is just one amazingly fun, very naughty and fast paced read. First and foremost it's a sci-fi adventure, with an actual 'quest' to fulfil, a princess to rescue and I'm sure Smorg mentioned something about a ring. It's a lot more erotic, if not down right smutty, then your traditional science fiction read and you won't hear me complaining about that. I loved how inventive Ledderik could be. Who knew tentacles could be such fun? I absolutely adored that last chapter, I was totally caught out by that little twist at the end, lol! Do I recommend this book? Only as much as sentient ships and talking swords make great partners. That's a massive yes by the way in case you were wondering

    This author is always known for thinking outside the box. This collection is an example of that. Prey This author continues to blow my mind. Her innate ability to create a world that transports her audience to another world in addition to having the hero of the story be otherworldly and yet have it seem real is not an easy feat. Yet, this author does it. If you would have asked me a year ago if I ever saw myself reading and LOVING 'romance' books based on steampunk, mesmers, and stoneshifters I This author is always known for thinking outside the box. This collection is an example of that. Prey This author continues to blow my mind. Her innate ability to create a world that transports her audience to another world in addition to having the hero of the story be otherworldly and yet have it seem real is not an easy feat. Yet, this author does it. If you would have asked me a year ago if I ever saw myself reading and LOVING 'romance' books based on steampunk, mesmers, and stoneshifters I would have laughed my head off. However, I sit here today and am writing a review about a hero name Zarblu and a feisty woman that defies the classic notion that women are weak and need to be coddled named Mila. This book is far from conventional. It started out as somewhat of a joke in her reader group and quickly blew up from there. Throughout this book, we can catch glimpses of the author and her personality. There are moments of humor, moments of acquiescence and ultimately moments of peace for both Mila and Zarblu. Who knew a monster could be empathetic? Or maybe that is where the joke is because even though from outward appearances he looks like a monster on the inside he is more human than an actual human. I know this started out as a joke but I would love to see this expand and see a story about a talking sword and a certain cyborg doling out punishment to a girl that desperately deserved it. Steel Do you ever wonder sometimes how an author comes up with certain ideas? Especially, the most obscure and "think outside the box" type of ideas and then turns it into literary prose? Those are questions that I ask myself every time I read a book by this author. I think that there is no way that she can outdo herself. This is especially true as she takes it in a whole new direction with everything that she writes. In this case, she is expanding on the Dark Monster fantasy series only this time instead of a stonehifter we get a monster mé·nage à trois with a Princess, an Orc/shag, and a cyborg. Might seem out of this world, which it is both literally and figuratively in this case, but don't let that discourage you from trying it out and seeing for yourself that this book/series is everything. It blends science fiction with fantasy, erotica with witty tongue in cheek humor. She creates a world that if you close your eyes you can picture it as if you had visited before. That in itself is pretty amazing considering it a futuristic location in Space. As always, her books have STEAM and an eggplant or two. Nothing like a couple of big eggplants to fulfill your hunger. Even with the humor, this author always gives another meaning. In this case, she seems to want to give the lesson the importance of being true to one's self and not to the dictates of those around you. In the long run, material things and appearances do not matter if you aren't truly happy. I cannot want to see what the next utterly wicked and out of world idea, this author has up her sleeve for her audience next. Regardless of what it is, I will be waiting with bated breath! Blade Where do I even begin with this book? I knew from the very first book in this series that I wanted a story about Smorg the sword and Lederick. What I didn't know was that I was going to also want it to turn out the way that this author envisioned. Creating a man who can change bodies and appendages as if they were a book from the local library. BRILLIANT. Often I read a sex scene in books and think, "well, that was hot" but rarely is it the first time I have read one that hasn't been done in some variation before. It was as if this author heard my inner musings and picked up the gauntlet and ran with it because every scene was unique. It was Hot. I learned things about myself that surprised me (no I won't divulge those but am now looking at tentacles in a whole new way) and found myself laughing at the same time. This book gave me everything that I wanted and so much more. There was humor, moments that I laughed out loud, and moments I had to fan myself. I love this author. Her dark books are some of my favorites of all time. Yet, I also love this quirky side of her where she manages to poke fun at so many things, uses puns and barbed sarcasm, but somehow still manages to show how much she invests in the creation of a story. There are still the elements of consent, darkness, strong females, world-building, and dark anti-heroes that can be found in her other works, only in this series she adds the humor. I am really glad this series all started because of a picture. and SMORG... holy titfire I LOVE HIM.

Prey This was truly a different kind of book that I've ever read and boy was it a wonderful surprise. This is my 2nd book by this amazingly talented arthur who keeps on surprising me with each book I read of hers. Mila has come to save her sister from being sacrificed to Lord Zarblu who is a monster stoneshifter, but when he see's Mila he wants her and she feels something for him she's just not sure what and the more she's around him the more she wants him. Folks this is Monster Erotica at it's finest holy smokes that stuff was hot as hell. I just can't wait to read more from this arthur. I normally don't read book's like this, but I am so freaking glad I read this one. I definitely recommend it. Steel Oh my lord Cari has done it again this book was sooo damn good I'm sad it's over. Ember who is a Data specialist and by all means a princess in trouble literally and it's up to Hoss her guard who is half orc and half shag to save her and they both end up needing rescuing from the Xatar who are after something Ember has & their holed up in a hidey hole hopefully waiting on someone to hear her SOS message before they are killed and just so happens Baz shows up in his ship he's just your typical half cyborg half man mercenary or bounty hunter saver of princesses needing help. These 3 omg are just amazing you can't help but laugh at some of the stuff they say or do and did I mention some menage going on up in this story oh yeh that s*** was hot as f*** damn this book was soo hot, dirty and good I feel like I'm just talking about the dirty parts and there's plenty of them lol. Ember finds out something that she's not happy about and plots revenge for the one's nope can't say that'd be spoiling it you'll just have to get the book and find out for yourself. Once I started reading it I didn't want it to stop I kept wanting more & more I couldn't get enough. I most definitely recommend this book. Oh and she has a little invisible dragon to. Blade Oh boy did Cari do it again another 5 star read. I've come to realize in her Sci-fi/fantasy book's to expect the unexpected. If you read her 1st book called Prey Lederrick was in it as an assassin and Lord Zarblu had set him free. This is his book and about a certain siren/s'kar female called Thorne and the adventure their about to go on. Not to give anything away, but once I started reading I didn't want to stop or for it to end. I normally don't read Sci-fi /fantasy book's but Cari's I'm always down to read them she puts such detail in her stories that you can picture the image in your head and let's just say Led as he's called because he's a cyborg and can get loaner bodies gets put into some very interesting one's. I'm not sure which one was my favorite, but that's just one of the thing's I love about her stories she's a wonderful storyteller and she'll have you laughing one minute and want to cry the next. I would definitely recommend reading this book it was so good.

This is book two in the series and it just gets better These are fun - out of this universe stories that mix together sarcasm and wit with the sexy dub con that we love and expect from Silverwood Ember is a prin "CESS" - who, like many that are afraid of judgment and condemnation, keeps hidden her darkest fantasies and desires - until death seems to be imminent. Then all bets are off the table and all desires are going to be fed Hoss has always admired Ember from afar - his job is to protect her - to make sure her needs are met - and he has just the tool to ensure the job gets done Baz wants his member upgraded - he was told if he rescued a princess the upgrade would be completed - well it seems his lucky day because a princess is hailing him now and he has no intentions of letting her slip away This was such a fun and engaging read - loved the action and the plot twist and the "puns" and - yeah -this was definitely an out of this world love story Blade: After searching for centuries to complete the 'quest' that would make him complete (previous book) Led finally was gifted with his "otherworldly" appendage - he is now complete (sort of) -but it seems his trails and tribulations may have all been for naught - Still unhappy and a bit jaded and with his trusty blade and side-annoyance Smorg at his side -he sets out to live his last day before trading this reality for a virtual one more to his liking. But as seems to always be the case for our cynical cyborg Led encounters a Thorn of a woman who he just can't seem to displease. Unable to abandon such a "frail" maiden Thorn gallantly volunteers his "bodies" to ensure her safe filling (fleeing? filling? whatever you get the idea) And so begins the arduous adventure of body switching (snatching?) - mystery solving - snarky ship smuggling and let us not forget the all-important pleasure mapping For those of you just tuning in to this adventure - this is a sexy fantasy tale that is filled with lots of filthy adventures and risque explorations into deep spaces 😉 not to mention the quick maneuvering and slippery escapades that seem to follow our band of travelers If you enjoy long tails, unique tools, and new and wondrous appendages then this is a must read I think this may be my fave of the series so far

Steel Lust in space!! What happens when Ember, Human of unknown origin (with an invisible pet/friend), Hoss A mixed breed Orc/Shag and Baz; a grumpy private parts envying Cyborg meet in space? Magic is what happens! This story did it for me on so many levels! With it's elements of Doctor Who/Red Dwarf characters and adventures, Monty Python like scenarios and humour and it's lusciously sinful moments of human/orc/shag/cyborg "porn" what's not to love? Entertaining, addictive, raunchy, lusty, action, danger, adventure, intrigue, funny with taboo elements and some darker moments it's a perfect mix! Blade Opposites attract. This book is a fantastic compilation of humor, sci-fi, fantasy, tentacle p*rn, cyborgs, AI characters and a mixed breed alien. Led is a cyborg who is "lost", has no purpose and has a detachable "weapon". He has a sidekick who is an AI sword, Smorg. Not only is his blade sharp so is his wit. They run into Thorn a mixed breed alien whose sexuality is a ticking time bomb that could end every males sexual appendages as well as their lives. And Jocelyn, the AI version of her starship trapped in a robot body. Here begins a story of multiple body changes, a multitude of freakin scorching hot alien sex with many appendages, lots of action/adventure and above all a LOVE story. I laughed, I had my engine revved by the action and sex and I got misty eyed at the end. What more can you ask for? I say this with the highest of compliments that many elements of this book reminded me of one my favorite British sci-fi comedy’s. Red Dwarf. Nothing was directly taken from that show, this story just evoked the same appreciation and love for a well written, highly entertaining, slightly warped group of characters in otherworld situations/adventures. The unique and distinct characters, the wacky alien/space adventures, the camaraderie, humor and interaction between all were a joy to read. Cari Silverwood knocked this story into the next galaxy! Bravo!!

The stone god-like male, whew he gots some plans in store, either sister it really doesn't matter to him. He brings a new meaning to "hard as stone" you have to ask yourself does size matter. Steal *fans face* Orcs, Princess and monks Oh. My. Ember is singleminded in her quest for knowledge, a gaggle *laughs* of monks knows just how to feed her enthusiasm.. or do they? These monks are a bit slim shady like. A half Orc guard has his own agenda, that envolves his hands and other body parts touching the information princess, who seems to stay in the middle of the drama Ember is now in the one place ever that hold a great deal of information, Information that could shed insight on her origins. If she can get to it. Blade I love the mix of Sci-Fi and Erotica with a dab of the holy cow did that really happen. Led the not so wrapped tight Cyborg kinda blah blah about life and is way willing to trade it for greener cyber fields. OMG, I love SMOG, he so rocked, a kick &%#@ AI I enjoyed his personality. Between a snarky sword, Led on borrowed time and Thorn needing to find out WTF about her life, the Prey world is kept busy busy, we get to meet all kinds of species, Oh and the way Cari wrote in the body thing with Led's Chari in a word brilliant! Cari Silverwood Monster worlds are exciting and interesting, surprising in the depth of detail, character growth and just some layers of odd that make Cari's work unique unto herself. A fabulous boxset, intriguing and fun. Much recommended read. Ejoy

    Dark Monster is an amazing series of fantasy sci-fi books that will make you pant like their animalistic characters. They're erotic, provocative and wild. I have all three books, and the vividly creative characters and settings are unapologetically untamed, devious, and packed full of action and heat. These were some of the first books of this genre I've read, and I'm now a diehard fan! I highly recommend it!

Oh and read the warnings. Prey Mila’s sister Tiana is to be sacrificed to Lord Zarblu and Mila must try to rescue Tiana. Mila is a mercenary-thief, star-rover, explorer of dead planets to find remnants worth selling. Prey is a novella so it is a quick book to read and I wouldn’t want to give anything away. I want to know what world does Cari Silverwood live in? She wows you with these little worlds of fantasy and make believe. These are usually dark worlds and not for the faint of heart. Hence the warning. Warning that Cari Silverwood has provided if you don’t like graphic books don’t read this one. I loved reading Prey and give it 4.5 stars. I can’t wait for the next book to come out! Steel When I read Cari Silverwood’s books I often wonder how in the world did she come up with her characters for these fantasy suspense stories of hers. I am not sure I will ever know these things but, what I do know is Cari Silverwood can write! Her books are always entertaining, they can be a little dark or all the way to very dark & disturbing. They are always thought provoking and she likes to push boundaries as much and as often as she can. I guess that is what I love about her books. Steel is the second book in the Dark Monster Fantasy. Each of these books can be read as a complete Standalone. If you like dark suspenseful and Hot as Sin books then you need to read this book. Steel is the story of Baz Rutland a cyborg with a lost soul. Ember is “A Principle Data extraction expert employed by CESS Industries - a princess in lay terms.” And Hoss is Half Orc, half Shag, and a hairy beast, he shaves to blend into the mass of humanity populating the galaxies. So as far as dark books go this one is on the lighter side of dark. I love Cari Silverwood’s warning. It is oh so true and almost funny. Here it is. Warning: "Like PREY, this book is not gritty uber-dark such as Cari Silverwood often writes. It is the pansy dark you reach for when you're all darked out and one step from seeing a therapist. It's carnal, naughty, and very twisted, and not what your mother ever wanted you to read. Also, there may be some robots that go PEW PEW." I loved reading Steel and I give it 4.5 stars and as per usual I can’t wait to read her next book. Blade Cari Silverwood – Blade. I love the cover! I think it is very telling how the story will be. Blade is the third book in the Dark Monster Fantasy series. We meet Ledderik aka Led (he was first introduced in Prey) & Thorn. In the beginning Ledderik isn’t very nice. Until he meets Thorn. Ledderik has just about used his body up and needs a new one. And, with the bodies that Led chooses he makes sure he has a priority to upsize his appendages. Yes, you read that correctly, appendages and he knows how to use them! Thorn is half sexy siren & half S’kar. She needs to choose which one she wants to be and Led has a preference for which one she chooses. Cari Silverwood writes with humor & sarcasm! She knows how to make a book interesting, hot & sexy! This isn’t the first book that Cari has had a tentacled character either. This is an entertaining story for sure. 5 Stars

    Lucky for those who gets to read this set! I read each of these separately and am sooo glad the author has put this into a set. It's a great deal and I couldn't pass it up. My review for each is below. Prey We meet Mila as she is on her way to rescue her sister from being the sacrifice of a stoneshifter, Lord Zarblu. Somehow, things don't work out the way Mila plans so she does what she can with whatever cards she is dealt with. However, will it be enough to save her sister or will it all be for n Lucky for those who gets to read this set! I read each of these separately and am sooo glad the author has put this into a set.

Somehow, things don't work out the way Mila plans so she does what she can with whatever cards she is dealt with. However, will it be enough to save her sister or will it all be for naught? I wasn't sure what to think of this book at first. It's not as dark as I thought it would be but there are still some moments that made me pause and think, "how plausible is that?" I wish that it wasn't a short read as I would have like to read more about this world Ms. Silverwood has introduced. Hopefully she will write more as there are other characters she can cover. Overall, I did enjoy the book and if you need something to read while you are in between books, check this book out. Steel I rather enjoyed this second book in this series. Ember, the heroine, is smart and can pretty much defend herself if needed to. However, sometimes it helps to have BIG help. Lucky her, she doesn't just have one, but two very BIG helpers in Hoss and Baz. I do have to say though, having not read the blurb, I was at first confused as who was the hero. The cover picture lead me to believe it was Baz and yet Hoss couldn't be discounted as well. Another thing too, I may be a little naive and less sexually educated than others, but...is it possible with some of the sex scenes? I mean it was HOT as heck and I am jealous of Ember and I can surely fantasize about this and most likely will for a long while but it really has me thinking. LOL. I should not over analyze things and just go with the flow. Blade So...I know I've been waiting for this book to be dropped since the "anti-hero" was introduced to us in the first book. From all the discussion I've seen on the cover, I was trying to figure out how any of it would have been done. Totally was not what I had in mind at all! And yes, I had a nice chuckle at that line "Come with me if you want to live". Considering that he did terminate beings if told too, hahaha. Thorn was unexpected and a nice surprise. I thought it might have been someone else who was going to be the heroine, but I am glad things turned out the way they did. That "someone" got her just deserts, LOL. The ending though...at first I was like "WTH?!?!" but then after some explanation, I liked how it ended. Im glad Ledderik got his HEA. BUT...what is Ledderik's final result????

When Mila, scavenger Extraordinaire, rushes to the rescue of her sister, the intended sacrifice for the ruler of Dispora, she is in for a whole lot of surprises! None of her well thought out plans for the rescue have the intended outcome. But one thing becomes very clear, the lord Zarblu intends to have his sacrifice and keep her. Stone-clad he may be but is he stone-hearted? Can a hard monster turn into a squishy monster? Find out! This is a very hot, fun, inventive and surprisingly thoughtful story. STEEL What starts out as a well thought out "girl afraid to admit to her needs", waffling between humping across the landscape with two, I repeat: two huuuge man/beasts, and trying to keep her job by adhering to her society's standards, turns into a, drool worthy, tale with much deeper meaning. Ms Silverwood's penchant for inventing her own "language" makes for many giggles and calls for her own dictionary. Being written as a light, funny, sexy tale, this book transports a very old adage: Power corrupts,..... BLADE The "male-chicken" (edited for sensitive readers) -less Cyborg? Now he has the appendage Lord Zarblu bequeathed to him to make him "whole". But does it make him happy, or what counts as happy for a Cyborg? Doesn't look like it. So he sells all his worldly belongings and commits himself to a virtual reality ... Whatchamacallit?! On his last day "alive", left with only Smorg, his irritating sword, he encounters Thorn, Starship captain in waiting and unwitting magnet of unwanted "attention". Including his. And that's when the problems start! Ledderik and Thorn form a bond that, at first, feels bewildering to them, but grows in intensity as they hump their way across half a galaxy to find answers to their growing challenges. With her usual irreverent language Ms Silverwood drags you into the story and I for one, followed her willingly, chortling, cackling and hesitating when I encountered profound insights wrapped in snarky comments. This is one more hilarious, inventive and seriously sweltering ... Yes it is a love story, believe it or not!

    Prey How to describe this book??. Well, it is a real Cari Silverwood book. That means you get a unique world with beings you have never seen or read about before. And some kinky stuff. It is the first Stone Shifter story I ever read about. .I really liked Mila. What I loved about her most was that she was down to earth and very realistic. She took what life threw at her, accepted it and moved on what needed to be down. And she kicked a**. Lord Zarblu is a stone shifter. Ancient and set in his ways Prey How to describe this book??.

She took what life threw at her, accepted it and moved on what needed to be down. And she kicked a**. Lord Zarblu is a stone shifter. Ancient and set in his ways in a lot of things, but not oppose to change. i felt he was a philosopher. Very knowledgeable and wanting to learn more. He and Mila made sense. They may look different on outside, but were actually very much alike. I really enjoyed the book. Steel What can I say about this book? I really loved it. There wasn’t anything about this book that I didn’t love. I kept thinking this would make such a great movie. It was easy to visualize the characters and the world that cari Silverwood created. It is a little goofy and silly and not to mention hot. It made me laugh and cheered me up while I was having a bad day.. It has a great cast of characters. Not only the main characters. Who would come up with a human, a cyborg and a half breed orc and shag. There are also unique secondary characters like the cybermonks. And there is Ig. I want one. So if you want a fun, hot and unique read, then this is the book for you. Blade The third book in the Dark Monster Fantasy series. If you enjoy a witty, action packed, sexy book with lots of sci fi elements all wrapped up in one book, then this is the book for you. I have to be honest and say that I had a bit of trouble getting into the book. There was just so much going on, it was a bit of a information overload, but things fell into place once they started their journey. I felt that in this book the journey was not just a psychical journey, but also a journey of exploring yourself and finding out what you want and need.

The characters are so much fun and the story really draws you into this realm of talking swords and stone men. I loved it! Steel - The Cybermonks told Baz if they brought him a princess that they would give him what he wanted. He searches planet after planet looking for her. Ember is a princess but not the kind you would expect. She wants to learn the truth about her family, will she?

Now that Baz, a cyborg has been equipped with his new tool he can’t wait to try it out with Ember. Can she handle both Baz and Hoss? The story is dark and twisted with lots of steamy scenes, but it is also funny with plenty of twists and turns that keep you guessing as to what will happen next. I loved it! Blade - Led is a cyborg and on the way to give up his body and live out his life in virtual reality, his master has left him behind and he no longer has a purpose. While stopping for one last drink before he turns his body in he sees Thorn and he just know he needs to help her. Thorn just wanted to go to her naming ceremony and get her father’s ship.

    3.5 Sort of dark, space opera erotica. Three different stories in a shared universe. I have to say I liked the last story best. It was the one I was most interested in after finishing the first one. The second one was pretty meh. Ultimately glad I got it through KU and didn’t purchase.

    It's pretty fine. I won't reread it but I finished it on my kindle app. I'm personally not too fond of it. I feel like some characters loose depth to push the ending of their story along.
