    "Ambereye (Garoul) is one of the best lesbian fantasy novels, in my opinion. I bought this for a close friend who suggested I read it as well. While the subject matter was questionable to me, I wound up enjoying it quite a bit. The author writes well and the story was intriguing. What else can you ask for?"

    "This book is basically a version of Bram Stoker's Dracula but geared toward lesbians. It certainly was revolutionary for its time, but I find the writing somewhat stilted and cliche. But that's probably expected when the author is writing a character that he has no personal understanding of. "

    "As a lesbian, I enjoy reading novels about other gay women whom I can relate to. There are very few authors who dabble in this type of fiction, so I'm always looking for more. I was recommended the graphic novel Sunglasses After Dark, which seemed to be an interesting take on vampires with a strong female protagonist, but I don't seem to see any evidence it actually contains a LGBT character, which is extremely disappointing, seeing as that's what I was looking for."

    "I don't like retelling of the already known and well established stories in a different way to make them more politically correct and make them more diverse, instead I always promote to create new stories with different kinds of minorities as leading characters not for the sake of simply shoving them in the story but rather implementing them in the narrative in an organic way.

    "The Demon Abraxas is an excellent choice in the paranormal romance genre. The book immerses you in a story where the characters are faced with things that are out of this world and ungodly things happen. There is romance, some sci-fi, paranormal, and more and it is an exciting read in the fantasy realm. The lesbian romance remains interesting throughout but can be hard to follow at times. I feel like the writer tried to hard to make Lily more likeable than she was and that turned me off a bit. Overall besides the cons I would still recommend it as a quick read."
