This is great. And probably not at all whet you’re thinking. And great.
The book is SPANK: Odyssey by Klara Raškaj, an Adult, Fantasy, LGBTQ+, Romance that released yesterday.
It’s easy to be a villain. Or is it? Domino Enviedhieri is a young magica user and aspiring entrepreneur stripped of his heritage, his dignity, and most importantly, his allowance. After being forced to battle a rampant demoness alongside his rival at the strip club where he works, Domino finally decides he’s had enough and wants to kill the bastard for stealing his well-deserved spotlight for the hundredth time.
With the help of his ethnically diverse crew, Domino embarks on an epic quest for ultimate power. Though the journey is riddled with dicks, demons, danger, and confusing sexual feelings for one’s best friend, Domino is determined to prove his greatness to the world and to himself.
But to beat the fiercest warrior in the enchanted Republic of Kitaria, there’s really only one power Domino needs to gain: his own sense of self-worth.
“Calm down.” Pumpkinhead chuckled. “It’s all right. Really. I honor my losses. And if those are the terms, then I accept.”
Domino took a deep breath and nodded as a light smile crept onto his lips.
Within moments, Pumpkinhead’s boots and pants were set ablaze.
The guys gazed upon the shining flames around Pumpkinhead’s body in awe.
When there was no more cloth left to burn, the fire disappeared.
Domino’s, Ken’s, and Starabey’s jaws dangled in midair as they laid eyes upon the majestic, dark, thick jewel hanging off Pumpkinhead’s loins.
“I hope this will suffice,” said Pumpkinhead. “And, please…call me Horatio from now on.” He gave them a wide smile and left them with the view of his plump gluteus maximus as he walked back to the temple.
Domino’s unblinking eyes begin to shed droplets of tears around the edges.
Ken turned to him with a confused look on his face. “Domino? Are you—”
But Domino remained silent. His eyes were watering and his hands trembling.
“Never in my life have I witnessed such…majesty…” Enzo commented.
“It’s so…” said Starabey.
“Fat,” added Bowie, tilting his head to the side.
Domino’s eyes remained open and his body unmoving. “I’m scared, but I’m not afraid…”
Ken coughed into his fist. “Perhaps we should…”
“Yeah…” mumbled Starabey, staring at the ground as he turned toward Ken. He then looked up with a puzzled grimace. “Wh-where do we go?”
Here with me today is the Novel’s… Hero? Villain? Both? Anyways.
Hi Domino, and thank you for being here today.
I think my first question will be, why did you run away from home to become a stripper?
Okay, first of all, I didn’t run away to become a stripper. I left because I thought my parents would feel more comfortable sucking Zephyr’s dick if I wasn’t around. I became a stripper because I couldn’t find a “normal” job that wasn’t mind numbingly boring without a college degree and because at least as a stripper, I could get some exercise while getting paid at the same time. Plus, at least I feel somewhat appreciated there.
Why do you hate Zephyr so much?
Because he ruined my fucking life with his perfect grades, and his perfect smile, and his perfect fucking self that I’m supposed to strive to be like!
Who do you admire the most?
President Horatio Pumpkinhead. He’s the only guy in the world who deserves more praise and recognition for his work than me. If I had a daughter, I wouldn’t accept anyone else as a son-in-law.
Who’s your favorite teammate?
Other than me, I’d have to go with Sublivion. He’s the only decent friend I have, even though he’s forced to do what I say.
What’s your favorite leisure activity?
Okay, let’s move on. What’s the worst thing you’ve ever had to do at work?
Be a backup dancer. You gotta work just as hard, but everyone ignores you.
If you were an animal, which animal would you be?
A couple of years ago, if you’d have asked me that, I would have said “lion.” But now, I’ve realized lions are unproductive, lazy pieces of shit that don’t contribute to society. Now, I’d want to be an octopus. Eight limbs equal four times the speed and efficiency.
What are your plans after you get your revenge on Zephyr?
I don’t know. I’ve always wanted to start my own business. Maybe I’ll open up my own strip club someday. But not before that motherfucker gets what he deserves.
