Blurb: Nira. Astrum Industries’ newest charted planet. Freshly discovered. Wholly unexplored. But that won’t be the case for long. Led by Captain Alec Hamlin, a team of explorers make an emergency landing and are soon confronted by their first Niran native. A huge male Kríe packed with muscle, baring small, black horns and fangs. Fortunately, he’s friendly. Or so he lets them believe.
With the help of his pack, the Kríe takes Alec’s team captive, intending to sell them for profit. But these Nirans aren’t just shrewd, they’re arrogant and domineering. And most of all, extremely sexual. Which explains why, on their journey to peddle their new wares, they feed Alec’s team a powerful aphrodisiac. Nothing like some decadent entertainment on the side. Soon the team finds themselves feverishly trying to resist the growing urge to mount their seductive captors. But as passion prevails and unexpected bonds form, so much more is suddenly at stake. With no time left, will a shift in Kríe perspective be enough to change the fate of Alec’s team?
Review: Well, this is an interesting start to a new series! I’m not generally a fan of sci-fi stories, unless it’s by an author on my auto-buy list. I have yet to be disappointed.
In this story, a team of humans has been sent the planet Nira to recover the previous team who disappeared. Right away, the new team runs into trouble, but the story quickly changes to the original team to show what happened.
The original team had much the same trouble as the recover team, but they were intercepted by a group of Kríe, large, powerful, purple aliens, who quickly take them captive with plans to sell or give them as gifts to their king. The bulk of the story takes place as they travel to the palace. In the meantime, the crew have all been fed fruit that will make them eager to mate with the Kríe. The team are all straight but for one guy, but the Kríe change that, waiting for each of the men to actually be begging them for it.
Things get quite interesting in this world as the men fall prey to the Kríes’ advances. Bonds are made with each of the pairings, most specifically with Noah and the Kríe leader, but, unfortunately, not in time for any to matter. The men must now await the arrival of the recovery team to save them, even though the chances of them being able to do so seem slim to none given the circumstances.
This is a different and very colorful world Ms. Knight has created. The scenes were quite vivid and alluring at times. I wasn’t ready for the story to end where it did and am really looking forward to the continuation to see how it all plays out.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
