[REVIEW] Father Figure by Kichiku Neko & TogaQ

Father FigureFather Figure by Kichiku Neko & TogaQ
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Recommended by: I am a fan of Kichiku Neko & TogaQ. Love all of Guilt|Pleasure's production
Recommended for: Pick it up if you like - Taboo, Dark Psychological Criminal theme
Read from November 20 to 22, 2013, read count: 1

5 Stars for being such a Unique Taboo Read that Scrambles My Senses

Blood relation, just how important is that? How strong could that bond be? Is it possible to love a total stranger? Especially if that stranger shared an unbreakable bond with you?

Gabriel developed an unhealthy obsession with a man, a stranger he had hoped to get to know better and ultimately be loved by. Uriel was the father he had longed for ever since he was a child. He was bitter when he found out Uriel has a happy little family of his own now and a favored son two years his junior upon leaving his mom behind. He hated the other woman who took away what should have been his and his alone. No one should compete with him for Uriel's attention and affection. Uriel owed him that. And he will make sure his father understands it even if he has to hurt him in order for him to learn. Afterall as the saying goes "spare the rod, spoil the child", an ironic phrase for them but it is one Gabriel deemed as the right recourse to steer his Father's affection towards him.

What transpired between this pair of long-lost father and son upon their ill-fated meeting was supremely taboo and disturbing enough to make you feel so wrong and conflicted for even reading it, yet you will find it hard to stop. You just had to know why, why Gabriel did what he did, and to find out what would Uriel do to salvage both of them from any further destruction? Do we really owe that much to our own child? How much are we willing to sacrifice for own flesh and blood?

Love can be the most beautiful thing in this world. Love can also be the ugliest thing when directed by a distorted perception. Love can be hellish. To a man like Gabriel, to love is to possess wholly, to claim full ownership, to be kept close by his side irregardless of consequences. I am still unsure if all those vile acts Gabriel subjected on Uriel is even remotely redeemable.

Since the story is narrated all by the perpetrator himself, we would get to feel his every volatile emotion and his twisted reasoning. At times, the intensity of his insanity makes me shudder with disbelief and horror. Books of such nature fascinates me till no ends. Being in the mind of a delusional, unstable person gives our mind such a great workout. Needless to say, there's never a dull moment in this book. My adrenaline was kept high throughout the reading.

I must say, the angst in this story is just superb. It has precisely the right amount to keep me satisfied and on a constant emotional high.

Okay, to be on the blunt side, this is a taboo book and it is ILLUSTRATED. I repeat, IT IS ILLUSTRATED. The taboo acts are ILLUSTRATED. There, I got it off my chest and feeling much better already. I can assure you that TogaQ's artwork is to die for and the illustrations are aptly applied. It heighten the experience and shake up our emotion. If you wanna know, there are a total of 19 illustrations in this book. I wish I could show some of it here but I had to refrain from spoiling the story and lessening the shock effect. Plus I would hate to be flagged by those well-meaning-GR-police. I must clarify that not all of the illustrations are smutty, there are a couple of those safe-for-work types too.

If you are those who aren't easily disturbed by taboo reads that contains high level of incest with a dose of dark psychological and criminal theme, then this book should be a winner for you. Angst addict would definitely adore it too. As for those looking for sweet romance.. please look elsewhere. The only romance to be found here is an utterly twisted one.

On account of how much this story had lodged itself deep within me, a 5 stars rating is a given thing. In fact, most books that graces my 5 stars shelf are those that had left its indelible mark on me.

Side note to all: For sake of world peace and personal safety; NEVER EVER have unprotected sex, NEVER EVER forsake your own children. OR you might just find yourself reliving Uriel's nightmare.
[ I ran my fingers through his hair; it was soft. There was a kind of excitement that went through me then that felt sexual. This man was my father. He used to belong to someone else and now he belonged to me. ]

[HIGHLY RECOMMENDED] Hoshi no Yakata by Maia Tori (BDSM Manga)

5 STARS and more for the Orgasmic Awesomeness

This is one of those unforgettable ones for me. Imho, it's the best BDSM manga so far. The images are nosebleed inducive. Sexy like hell. Highly kinky too.

Though be warned that this is HARDCORE and might scare those who are faint-of-heart.

What we get to drool about in this manga:
★ ~ Sexy half clothed men in various leather get-ups. Imagine leather bar, body harnesses, whips, cat-O
★ ~ Chastity belt/implements
★ ~ Whipping/Flogging/Canning
★ ~ Candle wax torture
★ ~ Piercing (on page)- every sensitive spot imaginable or unimaginable.... OUCH
★ ~ Sex Slave Training
★ ~ Various Form of Restraints/Bondage (it was so imaginative - I love it!)
★ ~ Various Gags (not the funny kind)
★ ~ BDSM Dungeons
★ ~ Cages for humans
★ ~ Body Branding
★ ~ Shibari/Japanese Rope Bondage
★ ~ Coffin/Boxed-up/Confined in box/Storage
★ ~ Water Torture
★ ~ Sensory Deprivation
★ ~ Breath-play
★ ~ Various Sex Toys - Anal plugs, didoes etc

OH NOES! WHAT ELSE HAVE I FORGOTTEN??? The list is too long already. I could only say that it's all the above and many more that got my adrenaline pumping hard due to its intensity. Pervy me has read and reread it countless times already and planing for more sweet time with it still.

Here's a tamer-safe-enough-to-post-here picture on one of the Sensory Deprivation used on the slaves:

[REVIEW] Concubine of a Space Conqueror! by Charlotte Mistry

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Read on November 20, 2013 — I own a copy, read count: 1 

Damn Elliot and his wantonness!
It is impossible to wipe that Shit-Eating-Grin off my face now.

This is Super-Alien-Alpha-Male topping a Super-Submissive-Earthling-Bottom. It might sound meh to some but this brazen lascivious little earthling is so charming both Kastya and I were deftly wrapped around his little finger. Earth's fate is in his hands as well. In spite of that, I am pretty sure we are in safe hands for Elliot isn't the easily cowed type. Even a hardcore tyrant like Kastya has to admire his guts and confidence.

The result of their meeting and 'satisfying union' was one hell of a fun ride. Well, I am envious of Eliot's ride. While I could only wish a human cock could do what Kastya's precious is capable of and daydream about prehensile cocks unless I got as lucky as Elliot.

Sidenote: Just in case anyone here is interested in more prehensile cocks , you may find ample of it in Horror Erotica: The Merman by Nikita King - it's one of those rare truly dark erotica that I treasured.

Likewise, if you are into wanton charming bottoms, do check out Luke's Brutal Abduction by Brad Vance.

Till then, adios!

[REVIEW] Crazy by Cari Waites

Recommended by: ARC extended to me by the author
Recommended for: True Dark Erotica fans
Read from November 17 to 18, 2013 — I own a copy

Braingasmic 5 Stars!

Braingasm feels so divine. It's SO gud, I shivers with delight.

The story leads you into a dreamscape of an unstable mind, you will never really know which is real and which is just a figment of a confounded mind.

The author has the ability to draw her readers into her character's surrounding and make them feel what they felt. Her words are focused and never excessive, just the right amount to nudge us along.

I could really feel the sense of angst and powerlessness displayed by Drew the protagonist, it gave me such thrills and lovely goosebumps. Makes my heart squeeze with just the right amount of empathy not interfering with my deviant side wishing for more distressing situations for Drew.

If rape and suicide is a trigger for you, be forewarned then. The suicide attempt scene was almost poetic the way it was presented. On the other hand, the rape scene was quite intense and real. Made me wanted to gouge the perpetrator's eyes out, step on it, squish it to pulp.

In short, this book is DEFINITELY for me. Half the time while reading it, I was fretting over when that kinky straitjacket on that cover is going to ever come into play or will it not be at all? Gasp, I would have been devastated if the latter was the case. You see, I have an obsession with bondage, the stricter it is the better it was for me. I was saved from my impending depression when Ms. Waites delivers a highly stimulating straitjacket bondage sex scene combine with a sling harness to boot! Oh, how I love her.

So okay with the kinky stuff, the next point which appeals to me was the Asylum/Mental hospital setting which incidentally was another fascination of mine too.

Hence, how could I not love this book? It has such an appealing and potent combination with just the right formulation for me:

[Asylum] + [Straitjacket] + [Drugging] + [Noncon/Dubcon] + [Sinister Doctor] = Lovely amount of Angst and Powerlessness
- End Result: a one way ticket to Cloud9 forever

Actually, what further cemented a 5 stars rating was the ending. It was non-stereotypical as it dares to be different yet staying true to the story and its theme.

Ms. Waites has once again delivered another memorable piece of dark erotica. Her previous work, Gamble Everything was also a fine example of quality dark erotica. To me, Ms. Waites has successfully captured the essence of dark erotica; It's arousing yet so wrong on many levels.

It is rare to find good dark erotica that stays true to its theme. Most would just plaster on a HEA/HFN no matter how unnatural it was for the story and worst off, some turned downright fluffy at the end! There are also those with the misconception that being dark and erotic means torture porn all the way. I find it hard to be aroused when the other party isn't the least bit enjoying it that's why I find forced seduction to be the best balance.

If you love dark, all-shades-of-wrong kind of noncon cum borderline dubcon stories, this is for you.

They said I was crazy. I said they were crazy. They outvoted me.

Drew thinks he isn't crazy just outvoted by those around him even his own parents. I'll let you be the judge of it.

Drew's not crazy. The dreams he has at night of his doctor restraining and dominating him can't be true. Just because he's a patient in a mental health facility doesn't mean he's crazy. Right?

So gonna eat this up and savor every moment of it.

This is going to be a good kinky ride. The ultimate fantasy comes true.

I hope for ample restrains in this book - the naughty kinds. Already loving that straitjacket on the cover.

Since loved this author's first work, Gamble Everything to bits. I am pretty sure this one would go on my favorites shelf as well given that I really like her writing style.

[REVIEW] Luke's Brutal Abduction (The Whole Story) by Brad Vance

My rating: 3.8 of 5 stars
Recommended by: Vivian Archer
Recommended for: Hardcore BDSM aficionados
Read from November 10 to 14, 2013 — I own a copy (Got it free on 25-Oct-2013 from Smashwords with promo coupon)

3.8 Stars. Love the Rawness, the Wildness and all that Rough Manhandling.

I find the total power exchange between Luke and Slader very arousing. Luke's total devotion and surrender to his master was what makes all those hardcore BDSM sessions between them so hot. Luke Mitchum worship Slader Jacobs like a god. He would lick the ground Slader walks on if that the only thing that would get his master's attention.

Subconsciously, Luke has been seeking for someone worthy of his trust, someone whom he could respect and let himself go completely. Slader, a no-nonsense ex-Marine was the only master Luke would and could surrender himself completely.
[ "This whole slave thing was not natural to him; he knew guys who’d get down on the ground and slobber for anyone in a bar who called himself a “master,” but not Luke, no way. It took someone of Slader’s magnitude – his handsome face, his chiseled bod, his overall badassery, to force, yes, force Luke to become someone else if he wanted to have more of Slader. ]
I like that Luke is not a wimpy sub, knows what he wants and would go all out to get it.
[ Since that night he’d learned what intimacy could be, what heights of physical intensity he could reach with a single man, if that man was dedicated to the craft of sex, the art of sadism, and Luke was his sole canvas. ]

Needless to say, Slader is exactly the type of master to fulfill Luke's fantasy to be used and abused hard.
It was a delight to watch Luke's pursue of Slader and his sweet surrender at the domineering hands of his badass master. Me thinks, Super Masochist Luke and Baddass PainGyver Slader is a match made in heaven. They are truly an unconventional couple. Truthfully, I was rather surprised to find romance in it and finding it kind of sweet too.
I liked this quote very much but it is a tad spoilerish:
[ It was a chain. A slender, silver chain, but a chain nonetheless. Slader’s eyes drilled his. “You put this on, you’re committing to more than just a fling in my basement. You put this on, and you’re mine. Maybe I don’t call you for weeks. Maybe I make you service my crew again. Maybe I cut that boot up and serve it to you. Maybe I take you to Folsom Street Fair and make you my bitch in front of God and everyone. But…” he held up a hand. “But I also take care of you. I make you cum. I don’t touch another man, and neither do you, unless I make you.” He flushed. “I don’t know about this love shit. But this is what I can offer now. Me. Take me or leave me, as I am.” ]
I love every session these two had together. And there's never a dull moment in this book. It was a very engrossing read indeed. The author is good at building up tension and getting his reader's adrenaline pumping; that kidnap scene really excites me much and then there's the much sought after subsequent gangbanging episode which Luke was totally drooling over. Lol. Besides that, the good characterization is also commendable as they are very realistic to me.

This book oozes masculinity and I find that a refreshing change from the usual fare. What I didn't like much was the fluid exchange kink - ewwwweee.... so not my thing although I am fine with the Golden Showers.

I think those who read this story by installments might miss the slow burn romance these two characters had as it was rather subtle. Therefore it is best to read the bundled version instead. Oh, and don't let that jarring title stop you from reading this. The title might sound harsh but it is all consensual play here; Kinky randy men playing with each other and having a blast.

As a side note, this book reminds me much of Master's Dungeon by Alex Morgan as the submissive protagonist in it was somewhat similar to Luke when it comes to the level of submission and devotion to his master. The masters in both stories are harsh and badass. However, Master's Dungeon is definitely on the extreme end - click here to know what I mean about that book.

[REVIEW] The Last Rebellion by Lisa Henry

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Recommended for: Mindfunk and Twisted-love aficionados and Stockholm fans too.
Read from November 06 to 09, 2013 — I own a copy

4 Stars for the Chocolatey Goodness. I want to lick it all off Miller tho.

I still think they should go for Sensory Deprivation it is more effective and elegant than all that mighty ass-plowing. They were trying so hard to break the prisoner's back-door plumbing. Mayhap it's the theme and genre of this book as well as its premise that prompted such acts to be included. I just thought the back-door torture scenes was a little over enthusiastic. Note that I am only referring to the quantity. There are afterall, many ways to break a prisoner than sexual torture. Like Miller says... "The isolation was enough to make most men desperate to talk. Otherwise, there was starvation or torture or rape. There was water. There was electricity. There was, in every man, a desperate crawling need to say anything to just make it stop."

My take on the Characters:
The tortured prisoner-of-war MC, Rho Smith is as stubborn as a mule, prideful and suffering a one-track-mind mentality with an overly bravado attitude. Rho's bravado is only a shield of his choosing to sustain himself throughout his tortured captivity. He sees it as his only defense. Nevertheless a shield based only on anger alone isn't the best defense especially when it was countered by a sociopath interrogator with a demented set of logic like John Miller, best known as The-Silhouette-Man.

Miller was drawn to Rho's case when he received reports on an unbreakable prisoner of eighty-four days captivity which is an unprecedented record. He was fascinated with Rho's resilient spirit and was obsessed with unraveling it by all means possible, for his own personal gain.

This is Miller's brand of interrogation technique:
“Every time they fuck you,” the man says after a while, “I will be here.
Sometimes you will see me, sometimes you will not. I may talk to you. I may stay silent.
But you will feel me, Rho. Even when I don’t touch you, you will feel me.”

Rho needs a different approach than most men.
Most men, Miller would reward for answering, but he is reluctant to do that with Rho.
He is unsure how much is instinct and how much is the sheer fascination of seeing that body twist in pain.

Regardless, it was a kindness.

This way, Rho is allowed to hold onto his anger, the source of all his strength, for just a little longer.

Miller will take it when he’s ready, but not until he’s decided what he can replace it with.

Miller certainly has a warped sense of kindness. He is wayyy more fascinating than Rho. Rho is much easier to define and he is quite a flat-character and we only get to see another side of him towards the end of the story. Miller on the other hand is a multi-faceted character. At least, I had fun trying to define and identify his motives. Sometimes Miller is very much like a young child fascinated with a peculiar bug, enjoying experimenting with it; pulling its legs off one by one watching it struggle piteously to get back up again.

In essence, Miller is a sociopath. He is charismatic, manipulative, domineering, self-serving, self-justifying and lack of true remorse or guilt. Empathy really isn't his forte. I am seriously doubting what he did for Rho was actually love without recompense.

I had to say, this Miller guy is so much better than that Toreth guy in The Administration by Manna Francis as an interrogator. Although he might not be as cunning and intuitive as Warrick.

I failed to see how Miller would even find Rho to be fascinating when he is plainly predictable and nondescript. His bravado can be a little tiresome at times too. It feels like Rho isn't the main lead in this story as he is more of a supporting character. I guess Miller's strong presence and eccentricity overshadowed even Rho's hardship.

Frankly, Miller is the one holding my attention throughout the book. Rho is just a broken man waiting to be dispatched for good since he had only one goal ever since his incarceration; he prayed for eternal oblivion as he could no longer see any way out from his current hell on earth. Hence, there isn't much to look forward to when a character has already given up. He isn't cowing to his oppressor but he has effectively chosen death from the very beginning. That's why he would feel this way at the ending:
Rho never saw it coming. - as he clearly didn't expect to live on and find someone who knows him well enough to be able to provide him with a sense of security he craves for. Someone he could let go completely and submit to without losing his pride. He is after-all a submissive who yearns to be dominated although it is a fact unbeknown to even he himself. He never did understand as to why he would submit to Miller his tormentor.

Moments that made me go Ooh, Aah and Yeowch!:

- Swooning much from the above passage alone.
“Stubborn.” Miller puts a hand around Rho’s throat and presses his
thumb into his windpipe. Gentle at first, and then with increasing pressure.
Slowly cutting off his air...

- Woah, asphyxiation edgeplay.
He’s turned again, shoved against the wall again, and flinches as the man rips the zipper up. He stands there, panting, so fucking relieved that his dick didn’t get caught in the zip.
- This actually made my heart skips a beat. I know I don't have those dangling bits but I just can't help cringing at this paragraph. O.o Weird that this little scene here is affecting me more than those rapes. *perplexed*

Wrapping up:
There is much gray areas in this controversial pair's relationship which I think is a good thing for us readers as it serves to intrigue us, making us want to read on just to find out more. To me, this is what a good engaging book should do. Makes life more interesting than black and white.

I truly enjoy Miller's way of taming Rho. Drawing forth his submissiveness slowly, silently, albeit surely. Here, I am only referring to the mindfucking part, not the excessive despoilment utilized to break him as that serves no purpose other than to humiliate him and in my opinion would only further fuel his stubbornness. Such a method is counterproductive for a man like Rho. I am impressed by Miller's use of...
...the foreshawdowing method to distract Rho's focus on his anger.

“Is that what you meant?” he asks as he stands in its shade. “You put the tree in my head, back in that place, not to remember, but to—to foreshadow?”

I am actually quite conflicted on the rating part as I don't care for first half of the book much. It's the last half that did it for me. I was going to go with either 3 to 3.5 stars initially. What raised the bar for me was the eroticism in the last quarter of the book heating up the pages. It was delicious. I appreciate it very much that I had to declare a 4 stars rating cos of it.

This book would suit those who loves twisted-love and psychological games; the bending of one's mind to the will of another. Would Stockholm be a better word for it? Read it and decide for yourself.

Taken around the bush the entire story only to find the elusive candy jar towards the last couple of pages.

I hate it when they do this to us readers. Especially for fetish short-stories books like this. Why can't they just give us readers what we obliviously wanted as per the advertised theme.

This book is close to USD5 for just merely 11,310 words. Hurts right? Hurts more when you aren't getting your money worth. This book is supposed to be all about ABDL, infantilism fetish cum femdom yet you'll only get your fix of it towards the last couple of pages??? Outrageous!

This is not my first book by this author, but this one lets me down totally. *sulking*

[FREEBIES] The Venus de Milo Murders by Dennis Manuel

FREE AUDIOBOOKS: Performed by multiple voice actors just like a modern-day radio dramas.

I've just stumbled upon this interesting FREE mystery drama audiobook. It was acted out by several voice actors and there's even special effects sound - like the sound of knife cutting through flesh. ∋━━o(`∀´oメ)~→

I really like the quality of the narration and it's pretty engaging.

[This video is just a short sample. You can go to this link for the entire book]

Take a look at the blurb, it's quite promising too:

One morning Billionaire Jack Danner looked out at his Priceless sculpture garden and saw the dead body of a beautiful woman, cut up to look like the famous Venus de Milo statue.

He couldn’t believe that the infamous killer had returned after a ten year hiatus. He immediately called Tommy Fallon, the retired detective in charge of the original case, and offered him two million dollars to find out who put the body there. It was an offer Tommy couldn’t refuse.

The detective had spent four years of his life chasing the Venus de Milo serial killer only to lose his career, marriage, self-confidence and faith in law enforcement.

[REVIEW] The Slave Catcher by Lilia Ford

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Read from October 23 to November 03, 2013 — ARC from author

A 3.5 stars rounding up to 4 stars for all those funny moments.

It was kinda fun seeing the intriguing alien world through the sole narrator cum protagonist, Sam Beron aka Eron Burad of the Maradi species. The Maradis are space nomads who prefers living on board starship instead of being planetside. Sam is considered an outcast as he is clanless and loves staying planentside which was considered a taboo amongst his people. He just happen to be the odd one out that hates space flying.

There are plenty of funny moments with Sam's awkwardness in dealing with his surroundings and events. Makes one wonder if he has chosen the right career; he's currently a Locator, some sort of Private Investigator. Although to him it felt more than natural since he is an avid Earth detective TV series fanboy. So much so that he paid a small fortune to upgrade his translator implant just for the sake of watching these PI vids in its original language. Even his new moniker, Sam Beron after he was ousted by his own Maradi clan was inspired by these PI vids.

Truthfully I felt that apart from Sam's amusing antics and perviness he wasn't a compelling enough character to steer the story along. In other words he should shine or at least stand out more than the other side characters since he is supposed to be the protagonist of this story. Thing is, he felt more like a-not-so-important side character that lacks strong presence. I kept feeling that we could just lose him and go straight to the premise itself; the Borathians and their Bonds who serves them as pleasure slave and the conflict over slavery within the Verse and their own sacred rulings on the bonding process.

Unfortunately the main story was somewhat diluted due to placing too much focus on Sam and his surrounding. If this is a normal novel length story, such lengthy world-building are indeed golden. To be fair, I did find the world-building in this story delightful.

The story ended with a couple of unanswered questions such as why the Borathians place such importance on finding a slave to bond, why did they value their bonded slave so highly when it feels like they are not irreplaceable nor are they exclusive-fated-pairing with unbreakable bond. I also wish to learn more of those 'Energy-Exchange' between the Master Borathians and their bonded ones. The telepathy link between them is also an intriguing subject to explore further on.

Another part which I had hope to read more about was the interactions between the bonded slave and their master which was inadequate to appease my Master & Pet/Slave love appetite especially for a story that carries such a theme. Anyhoo, this is only a matter of personal preference.

I did enjoyed the part where Elia and his bonded Master, Raphael openly display their affection towards each other. It was a lovely sight to behold. Elia was like a sexy little kitten there seeking out some sweet attention from his master. *chuckles* I want to pet and cuddle him close too. Can't do the same with Liam cos he might scratch my eyes out.

Actually I couldn't quite figure out Liam the other Earth boy who was bonded to Zachariel another one of those all powerful Borathians. I didn't mean that he's uninteresting, it's just that he didn't get the chance to show more of himself as the story was short and time is limited.

While Raphael seems to be a decent and respectful master, Zachariel was quite the opposite which makes me wonder why on earth would Liam make that final decision when Sam asked him to choose. It just makes it harder to believe that...
...they are in love with each other. Maybe that's because we don't have their background story to fall back on hence making their romance questionable.
I blame it on the weakness of short-stories which limits the time for proper elaborations to be made.

Overall, it was a fun story and one with much potential. I would definitely hope for a sequel or a prequel that focus on the Master & Pet/Slave; the bonding process, the conditioning techniques applied on the slaves and the tough loving the masters pours onto their slaves. *evil grin*.

Star City, best known for its brothels and casinos, is one of the few planets in the quadrant that outlaws slavery—for everyone, that is, except the galaxy bullies, the Borathians. Telepaths and recent conquerors of a backwards planet named Earth, the Borathians are simply too powerful to refuse. A special treaty allows them to bring their pleasure slaves or “bonds” onto the planet, and if one escapes, they have five days to recover him.

Sam Beron, private locator, may have been born on a Maradi space cruiser, but Star City is his home now and he’d say he despises slavery as much as any native. Unfortunately, a run of bad luck at the casino tables leaves him flat broke and scavenging expired military rations out of a neighboring dumpster. Next thing he knows, the Borathians are offering him a fortune to track down one of their escaped bonds, a beautiful Earth boy named Liam. What's a hungry locator to do?

A feisty slave is calling to me. I hope he is naughty as hell. It makes punishing him all the more sweeter.

I like this cover too. It even looks great thumbnail size.
