I love sci-fi, and am not adverse to the thought of erotica in space so Awakening the Warriors was a natural choice for me. Though I remain skeptical of the idea of putting up with more than one man permanently I am willing to entertain the notion in fiction.
Fran must have been crazy to leave her ordinary (and safe) life and volunteer as a colonist to terra‐form a new earth. Now she is trapped in a prison cell on an alien planet a zillion miles from home and bound for a hideous death in notorious research chambers.
She has one chance of escape. Awaken the long dormant sexual urges of the Darkon Warriors shackled in the next cell.
A desperate job, but someone has to do it.
Fran and her fellow captives are being kept in desperate straights, rather than the salvation they were promised, they are facing almost certain death. The only hope lies literally in the cell beside them. The Darkon are a feared race of warriors, if only the women can convince them to aid their escape. Fran draws the short straw so to speak and is the sexual sacrifice they offer. Not one to shirk her duty Fran embraces her task fully, in as much as we didn’t get to know her well. Fran is a plucky character with plenty of backbone yet didn’t cross over into the dangerous territory of arrogance.
Being a novella there was not a lot of opportunity for character or plot development but regardless of the short length S.E. Gilchrist managed to peak my curiosity and I imagine I will be spending more time in the Legends of the Seven Galaxies world in the future.
