Personally my favorite character is Rose because she doesn't just take what life dishes out, she dishes her own right back. She proves herself to be strong, loyal, caring and a little bloodthirsty but in her situation who wouldn't be? Watching Ash start as a well used slave that earns hir freedom and, even through torture, is able to grow into a person others look to for advice was satisfying? Gandre Li is another well like character in that she chose to help the freed slaves because of her feelings towards her own slave Trace. I am excited to see where their future takes them. Will they end up joining the Qin rebellion, or will necessity just make them run for the Qin to hide? I am also very interested to see what happens to Kwort.
This book left me chomping at the bit to start Slave Masters, the next book in the trilogy. I recommend reading this book to all above the age of 17.
Warning this book contains same gender, and group sexual relations. It also describes forced sexual encounters.
They thought they were just getting another earth slave, little did they realize what they were really getting. You see this little hellcat isn't destined to be the property of just any old alien slave master.
A run down freighter, an alien species with its own plans for independence, a desperate escape attempt, an incipent interstellar rebellion that's just been waiting for the right spark to set it off. An independent Warship Captain with his own agenda. This book has it all.
Finally any review of this book wouldn't be complete without mentioning the vast amounts sex, coupling and varied relationships that takes place among the would be escapee's. Multiple men with multiple women, multiple men with a single woman, monogomy, casual, just about every flavor under the sun except for a straight out traditional polygamous union are consumated over the course of this series.
The Deposed King
The character I loved was the protagonist of this novel- Rose Rico! Wow! She has it all. Intelligence, inner-strength, fortitude, beauty and a ruthless tenacity that says- don't mess with me or my friends. She is your best friend or worst enemy. I can honestly say that I would not want Rose Rico hunting me! Rose has the leadership abilities of Kathryn Janeway and the tenacity of Leia Organa. Simply put, she won't give up and will never back down from her enemies.
After Rose is abducted from Tijuana, Mexico, she is brought aboard a Domain space station which comes under Qin attack. She and ten other Solians (Earthlings) are herded onto a freighter from which they manage to escape their captors and gain their freedom against insurmountable odds. All along it is Rose that leads the group. With the support of her loyal second and third commands (Ash & Mote), the Solian group is able to gain refuge on a Qin colony and fight against the ever ubiquitous evil empire of the Domain.
What makes this book different from so many other space opera tales is not just that the lead protagonist is a woman (Still A Rarity In Sci-fi), but she is a woman of color. Susan Wright should be commended for this as well as her showcasing openly gay and transgender characters. I've only seen this discussed once in a science-fiction novel (Christopher Rowley). There may have been other writers that have alluded to these topics, but unfortunately they are few and far between. Susan Wright has included humans of different shapes, sizes, colors and orientations. This melange only heightens the book and has me waiting for more.
Slave Trade, second edition has several pages of added information that heighten the sexual tension of the book. Perhaps the previous publisher was skittish about including more details of homosexual relationship and/or felt that it went counter to what their readership wanted. This and a description of several orgies may have scared Pocket Books, the original publisher. The Kindle format pulls no punches and as an uncensored work it really hits the spot.
For some reason my previous review was deleted. I hope this one remains permanant. Buy this book and you will not be disappointed.
