Magdalena #1-2

After the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Mary Magdalene, reputed to be his wife, gave birth to a daughter, Sarah.  From this child is descended the holy lineage of the Magdalena, a royal bloodline that passes great power and great honor from mother to daughter.  For over 2000 years, the Knights of Malta have trained one special woman in each generation to be the Magdalena — the official warrior protector of the Catholic Church.  Across the millennia, the Magdalenas have battled in secret, protecting humanity from the supernatural threats and evil that would tear our world apart.

 Sunstone is a gorgeous work of erotic fiction.

The art is sensational: digitally-painted, a blend of realism, Disney, and a dash of Anime for good measure. The skin of the characters glows with warmth, and the bondage gear is inventive and quite interestingly engineered. The costumes range from cute to weird to downright alien at times, but it can never be said they aren’t fascinating. The writing is good, and downright funny at times; I could even indulge the corny bits…c’est la Bodice-Ripper, non? What surprised me the most, however, was a harrowing ...

The Magdalena has the ability to see into the human heart, to show people the error of their...
