    1. This review originally appeared here:bookswithoutanypictures.wordprI spent most of an afternoon drawn into JM Guillen’s free short fiction over at Irrational Worlds, and was quickly hooked by the rich and evocative worlds conveyed in just a few paragraphs. Needing even more, I decided to try the novella Handmaiden’s Fury.Handmaiden’s Fury is the story of a young priestess named Keiri. She is a devotee of the goddess Rydia, whose grants power through sexuality. Keiri’s power allows her to [...]

    2. Guillen goes all 50 Shades with this oneHaving read a couple of the author’s other stories, this one was a bit…different. With the accustomed quality of writing, fantastic and baroque atmosphere and interesting characters, the rating jumps from PG-13 to R and delivers our heroine, the eponymous Handmaiden. One part priestess, one part spy, one part assassin and all seduction as she plays host at times to a lusty and deadly goddess. As part of an order charged with rooting out dark powers tha [...]

    3. J.M. Guillen is a wordsmith. This is the second Guillen book I've read and I'm convinced.To say that this book was a pleasant surprise would imply that I was going into it with low expectations. Quite the opposite, and still I was surprised.Beyond just a fascinating plot, Handmaiden's Fury has a rich world described through character relationships. This alone was interesting enough to keep me reading, but Guillen offers so much more.Scenes of fantasy/horror in Handmaiden's Fury possess such rich [...]

    4. Finished it today, and loved it. Has an excellent setting that makes you wonder what else there is lurking. There are strong, beautiful women, mysterious men and monstrous villains. The scenes where the magic happens (literally and figuratively. Go read it, you'll see what I mean) are really spicy; lots of heat, nice, slow burn and an excellent payoff, just like a nicely smoked chipotle pepper. The ending hints at more, and I hope there will be.

    5. This novella got a little repetitive, but I have to give a round of applause for anyone that can mix BDSM, sex magic, and horror into a coherent narrative. Sometimes the world-building seemed a little outsized for the story this was attempting to tell, but it compensated for that with some steamy scenes that were surprisingly skillfully juxtaposed with horrific violence. The characters seem a little one-note, but it is a novella, so that's to be expected.

    6. I picked it to read next because of the cover (with that sexy red head), but I kept reading because it was friggen HOT. From page 1 this author made the power and magic that so many other people write about sexy, wild and justain hot. An EFFECTIVE writer can induce feeling. Let's just say I was 'induced' quite heavily within 5 pages. It's kind of weird, but somehow the magic, the power, even the half-human creatures exist within this world in such a way as that they are sultry and exotic. A lot [...]

    7. TThis was awesomely complex,the magic structure,the everyday words for the ingredients, the powers of the handmaiden and her sire's are wide open for the readers imagination to visualize in there heads!!!! The more twisted your head the more this book will draw you into the world!!!!!!!!!!!!DEFINITELY RECOMMEND I'M GOING TO START THE HERALD OF Autumn RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    8. Another fantastic novel by Guillen. The phrasing, the flow of words, are just captivating. I also don't know of any other author that could convincingly mix temples, BDSM, and sex magic. I hope this is a series - I want to learn more about this world that has been created. Guillen hints at the world these characters exist in, but I would love to see it fully fleshed out.

    9. I started reading this book with scepticism. Now I'm so glad I did! The strong, yet, vulnerable Keiria is a wonderful character. She's enticing and her story is fascinating. Keiria has qualities a lot of women have. She's inventive, strong in her faith, beautiful, loving and kind, but also deadly if the need arises. I can't wait to read the next book.

    10. An Interesting TaleThe Goddesses gifts takes on evil when a man is trafficking women and using dark arts. The Handmaiden's job is to be used as a tool for the Goddess. An interesting read with unique characters and circumstances.
