The author once again presents us with a rather unique world. This one focuses on beauty,
where plastic surgeons are more plentiful that telemarketers. It is also a world where you
can get a Mark, which downplays your role in society. Which can be given for any reason THEY see fit, the group that controls this also can leavy fines also for any reason THEY see
fit. But what happens to that money become an important point later in the story.
The story focuses on Quigley and Zada.
As Zada goes about her life, she is approached by Dr. Odette Bloodstone and offers plastic surgery.Her friend Chet (A Prince) sits next to her, Zada is mad at him because he wants Zada for a mistress.
Chet is rude and generally selfish no wonder assassins want to kill him, Zada stops them.
Next we focus on Quigley, Who at a Potluck Supper meets Zada.
A fake date Zada and Quigley go on to a restaurant where their meal ruined by Chet.
The more they hang out together the more they fall in love.
Turns out King Valor (A real villain) wants Chet dead, meanwhile the Mark Board is sending money to him.
Once someone named Penny enters the story things happen fast. It seems Penny had evidence on a sweatshop, which Quigley must retreat. Once this is in the hands of those who do the most good.
This then leads to the Marks against Zada to be removed, and her and Quigley getting married. As for Prince Chet, he gets his in the end.
A nice short novel which tells of how beauty can become so important that beauty drugs and plastic surgery can become common as the cold. Here we get the story of Zada and Quigley who simply want to be together. But Prince Chet demands a mistress, and there are forces in this world beyond their understanding. But that is where this book shines. We see their struggles, but will they succeed? Only time will tell. Well worth checking out, like the author’s other works.
Furry Galaxy 75: The Dragonfly Probes is a follow up to Furry Galaxy 75: Pandora’s Box and features many of the same characters. The story starts out when the characters use Dragonfly Probes to explore decaying Timelines, and other dimensions etc. I found the entire book very interesting on how the author included a lot of loose ends from the first book and a lot of what if’s. It was the aspect of time travel. In telling these little stories, where your are not quite sure what is going to happen next. I found Furry Galaxy 75: The Dragonfly Probes both interesting and enjoyable.
Although Furry Galaxy 75: The Dragonfly Probes is a book that stands upon it’s own. I swear I would have enjoyed it so much if I didn’t read Furry Galaxy 75: Pandora’s Box first.
Essentially a SFW book, even an adult will enjoy this book. Although I would have liked to get into the basic plot that runs through the entire book. There is just too much to tell, and fear it will ruin the book for some. All I will say is that you like to see characters in a book get into mess, not always of their making, and how they get out of it.
This is the book for you.
I was contacted by Avery Miller more than a year ago to write a review of their book. I am sorry to say it took until now before I finally read it. For a 1st effort it’s okay, but the book is for newbie furs only. Frankly I have seen YouTube videos that cover these same topics this book covers far better. The one thing I totally found annoying was the QR codes to now get this YouTube videos. Even my own attempts to help newbies was far better than this rather short book. Let us hope Avery Miller’s next book is better.
If I have to score this I give it 2 stars out of 5
I fully admit I was uncomfortable reading this novel. It’s not that it was bad, it was more like stepping into someone’s private life and seeing their darker side. The Goat dives headfirst into the world of magic and transformation for sex. I know usually in book reviews they recount the entire story to get people to buy copies. But the book has been out for a while and frankly there isn’t much to the story other than what I already said. Transformation, sex and goats.
Although the story in my opinion is very well presented, it’s just I am not personally into such things and frankly I thought it was also a bit too creepy. On how the main character slowly drives all hope from his victim.
Coming from an abusive father, I felt for the victim.
As the story dived deeper the more uncomfortable I felt. Believe me this isn’t like any other kind of book with the same theme. Where the harsher side is played down, no here you get it square in the face with both barrels…and that isn’t buckshot along with gun powder residue…IT’S CUM!!!
Deeper and deeper we go into both the sex and transformation the more twisted this tale became. For example later in the story the main character becomes a goat for 2 weeks but has no memory of their time as one.
As for the ending…it takes a strange turn when one of the characters permanently transform into a car. I didn’t quite get that but it is the way this story goes.
Really should you pick up a copy like I did when I saw one at MFF? Only if your into this kind of stuff or am curious about it. Bill Kieffer did a great job, anyone who make me feel this creepy gets one of my highest recommendation.
