An AMAZING Book You Need To Read!!!!!!
on 18 May 2004
Reading the first few chapters of this book, I became increasingly annoyed with the agressive archtypal Alpha male intend on dominating his woman. However the developing relationship between Kyra, an accountant from Earth, and Zor Q'an Tal, High King of Tryston and Emperor of Trek MiQ'an Galaxy, had in me absolute stitches. There are parts of this book I am desperate to reveal, however I won't spoil your experience by divulging too many details!! All I'll say is watch out for the unusal birthing experience endured by the ignorant and primitive Earthwomen and the subsequent changes to their bodies - I chuckle now as I type.
The language is less delicate than your average sci-fi romance but it gives the book an edgier feel and the lovescenes though no hotter than something written by JOY or KENYON sometimes involve more than the usual 2 participants. This book is therefore not for the softer, more sedate romance reader. You won't cuddle down in a chair with this book, instead you'll be using it to beat your man around the head to make him obey your commands!!
The world BLACK creates, with its strange alien races and outrageous customs is extremely well written. Yes this is a sci-fi yet BLACK never lets the reader lose the belief that this is somewhere REAL. All I say is that if this is the case then beam me up Scotty. As Kyra shows, adjusting to a new life on an exotic planet is difficult, but the advantages she has definitely make up for the uncertainty of a new life literally a million light years away from her previous one. This book is a great find and I'm off now to order the rest of the Trek Mi Q'an series - thank you very much JAID.
