I loved the first two books in the Harem Boy’s Saga and I devoured book three just as eagerly. Debauchery is a seamless transition in the author’s amazing journey, and I admit I am now addicted to this series. Correspondence in 2012 supplements the story as Young relates his experiences and feelings in 1967. He was a young boy when he flew to London to meet his beloved Valet, Andy. They’d been apart for eight weeks, and they missed each other desperately. Once they were together again, they could not wait to give in to their passion. Their reunion captivated me. I became totally involved with the characters and emotionally invested in their story. The journey moves on to the French Riviera, and other exotic locations that are so well described, I felt like I was there. Young and Andy become part of a royal household and all the joy and sadness of their taboo lifestyle is related with honesty and in a wonderfully engaging style. Knowing the story was true only made it more compelling. There was no way I could put it down. Kudos to the author for letting us share his journey of self-discovery.
This book is about a teenage boy's erotic and exotic adventures in a Middle Eastern harem - Quwah. It is a titillating, raunchy and evocative account of the author's adolescent love for Andy, his chaperone, an older man. Essentially this is a gay coming of age novel and will appeal to gay readers who are exploring their own sexuality.
It is also about the great and wonderful Arabian heritage of tolerance, acceptance, sufferance and strength of spirit in the face of adversity, sensuality, maturity and above all love.
I was given Harem Boy’s Saga III: Debauchery by Young as an ARC and loved it. It’s a fascinating third book in a series that continues the courageous true love story between Andy and the author. This series is tender, romantic, has setbacks, and yet loving, as Young tells his amazing journey, and offers ways for us all to have a happier and more fulfilled life. I’m not one to reveal any spoilers and several reviewers have already fleshed it out. With that said, I would highly recommend this page-turner and give it five stars!!
