    Sex turns these Aliens into Invincible Warriors Fran is being held prisoner along with other female aliens They fear death by torture, or even worse, via experimentation The females know that there are Darkon warriors being held a few cells down from them These women realize they have no hope for escape, unless they can unleash the power of the Darkon warriors Quain and Jerrell are Darkon Warriors They have been tortured and are strapped down to steel tables when Fran sneaks into their pri Sex turns these Aliens into Invincible Warriors Fran is being held prisoner along with other female aliens They fear death by torture, or even worse, via experimentation The females know that there are Darkon warriors being held a few cells down from them These women realize they have no hope for escape, unless they can unleash the power of the Darkon warriors Quain and Jerrell are Darkon Warriors They have been tortured and are strapped down to steel tables when Fran sneaks into their prison cell She gives them water, cleans their wounds and brings them both to climax Did I mention that Darkon Warriors receive their strength from sex and sexual release Well Fran s sexual sacrifice gives them the strength necessary to escape.This book had great potential, but it fell short The writers style was choppy at times The world building was unclear and not described well I found myself having to re read parts, wondering if I had missed something But it was just that the author had left out details The first sex scene between Fran and her warriors was unenjoyable They were bloody from torture and strapped down at the time, yet I am to believe that Fran was so overcome with lust that she had to give Jerrell a BJ And the sex she had with Quain feltlike a chore Later in this short story, Fran is anxious to leave her warriors behind because she feels that they view her as a hookup to pass the time The sex is hot, but void, without emotion These three NEVER had a meaningful conversation Then in the final paragraph of the book, Jerrell refers to Fran as their mate, so that makes her happy and she decides to stay with them I just felt like there was no emotion what so ever I have a theory that sex without emotion is boring I need to feel that the characters care for each other or that they have started to care for each other before the final paragraph of the book.Solid 2.5 stars rounded up to 3 stars.ARC received from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review

    It s the year 6036, and thirty three year old Fran is regretting leaving her comfortable, if dull, life in Adelaide for a colonising expedition in space Her ship has been captured, she s separated from almost all of her fellow space settlers, and the future looks dire Locked up in a bare cell with a number of other females from different species on the planet of Olman, Fran can only keep young Margaret company as they listen to the sounds of alien warriors being tortured in a nearby cell.Fran It s the year 6036, and thirty three year old Fran is regretting leaving her comfortable, if dull, life in Adelaide for a colonising expedition in space Her ship has been captured, she s separated from almost all of her fellow space settlers, and the future looks dire Locked up in a bare cell with a number of other females from different species on the planet of Olman, Fran can only keep young Margaret company as they listen to the sounds of alien warriors being tortured in a nearby cell.Fran isn t one for sitting down and taking it, though, and she riles up the others to think of escape and freedom One of her cellmates has an idea, but it requires Fran s willing participation The warriors are Darkons, and while at the moment they re barely surviving, if they are awakened, sexually, then they become almost invincible They would certainly be their best bet at escape.There aren t many options available, and as one of the only human females there, it s up to Fran to awaken the warriors At the time, she s thinking mostly of escaping this hell hole, but all too soon the reality of what she s unwittingly committed herself to becomes clear.I have to be clear I haven t read Legend Beyond the Stars, the full length story that begins this series and establishes the whole premise, and I think my reading of this novella suffered for it The problem was that this was too short a story too short to explain things, establish anything, create a clear context or even develop the characters I feel a bit unfair, but all I can do is speak of my experience reading this novella.While Fran s situation is explained, albeit in short detail, the broader context is missing There s no explanation for why her ship was captured and all the colonisers imprisoned, or why any of the other females were locked up either I don t think this would be explained in the first book There re hints that there is a major inter galactic war going on, when one of the aliens mentions that the Darkons are resisting and the Elite Guards of Olman are planning a major strike against the Darkon home world But nothing is explained, and without the right context the scenario of Awakening the Warriors didn t quite hold up I would hope that the first book fills in these gaps.But let s take this as the erotic space opera novella it is It has a conventional, simple plot structure divided into three short sections the prison, where Fran sexually awakens the warriors, and from which they flee amid much gunfire on board the ship they escape on and the last stage on the space station where Fran and Margaret are nearly captured again There s not a whole lot to it, which made me think that I prefer longer stories to novellas But mostly I was disappointed by how formulaic it was I ve read quite a few stories generally classified as Paranormal Romance, and this shared many of the same tropes The Darkon Warriors could have been alpha vampires, or werewolves The two Darkon who survive and are awakened by Fran are called Jarrell and Quain Jarrell is younger, sweeter Quain is older and very alpha macho, even.Since this is a novella, there isn t all that much sex in it two scenes only, though with two men involved it feels likeAgain, the condensed nature of the novella format made the lusty writing come across as a wee bit silly I often had to stop myself from rolling my eyes and work at going along with it Again, the problem with a novella is how squished it feels, how rushed the sexual attraction and progression becomes, and how dependent the story is on romance conventions and familiar language If you had enjoyed the first book and got into the world building and set up, it would be easier to enjoy this for its own sake and not worry about any of these quibbles I didn t realise it was a sequel or a novella until I started reading it, but for all my criticisms, there were enjoyable elements to this story.Fran is likeable, she rises to the occasion and becomes a strong heroine She s got a sense of humour, and she doesn t over think things or get self indulgent in her thoughts and reflections The writing is capable and flows well, and regardless of how corny you might find some of the lines, they are fun and Gilchrist made an effort to add a dash of originality I found myselfcurious about the world and its politics then this short story allowed, and rather wish there was aserious, lengthy story available that really developed it It makes me both interested in reading Legend Beyond the Stars but also wary, afraid that my questions won t be explained and I ll come out of it evenconfused and frustrated Aside from anything else, this is a snappy and exciting story The fast pace and novella format don t allow for dull moments, and the sex is quite steamy Unfortunately, the Darkon warriors are under developed as characters, and come across as mere muscle men with demanding cocks Like any other intelligent woman, I find that sexy men are only sexy when they have personality and some brains, too So overall, this was a frustrating mix of good and unsatisfying, exciting and disappointing.My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book via Netgalley

    Sothis story was errr Not bad, but not good either Don t get me wrong, it has potential But the story needs to be re edited and the grammar needs to be fixed.The main character, Fran, I admired Leaving Earth to volunteer on another colony, Fran now finds herself trapped in a middle of a war and held prisoner in a dungeon next to two sexy inmates Now the only way to escape from her prison includes enlisting these men and possibly losing her heart in the process Not a bad deal huh Well, Sothis story was errr Not bad, but not good either Don t get me wrong, it has potential But the story needs to be re edited and the grammar needs to be fixed.The main character, Fran, I admired Leaving Earth to volunteer on another colony, Fran now finds herself trapped in a middle of a war and held prisoner in a dungeon next to two sexy inmates Now the only way to escape from her prison includes enlisting these men and possibly losing her heart in the process Not a bad deal huh Well, not to me anyway Other points I noticed The cover is SUPER SEXY That s what initially caught my eye And the title is catchy too The story is very short and rushed Then again, what did I expect from a 45 pager There is like 2 sex scenes VERY HOT No real character development PERIOD

    Huh So basically, it is all about sex Like their power comes from pardon my word, jacking off _ It s an okay novella Just that I m surprised that she got TWO male partners Kinda weird I guess it is acceptable since this is an erotic story Or whatever.I thought that there s a good story behind it all But I guess it just sounded a bit absurd The whole thing is okay It is an okay novella Not something I would want to read twice though It s my first time reading a novella that h Huh So basically, it is all about sex Like their power comes from pardon my word, jacking off _ It s an okay novella Just that I m surprised that she got TWO male partners Kinda weird I guess it is acceptable since this is an erotic story Or whatever.I thought that there s a good story behind it all But I guess it just sounded a bit absurd The whole thing is okay It is an okay novella Not something I would want to read twice though It s my first time reading a novella that has two men and one woman Threesome at it s finest LOL It s weird but I think it is acceptable since this one is an erotic novella and a dystopian kind of sorts In any case, just a so so novella for me

    DNF at 73%Small disclaimer Science Fiction isn t my thing I read it occasionally, and am trying to readof it, but 9 times out of 10 it doesn t grab me in the same way fantasy paranormal would Most of what I read, I skimmed the writing was completely unengaging which probably has a lot to do with the main character I honestly don t even remember her name that s how much of an impact she made on me and I just put this book down She s a tool used to awaken the Darkons aliens nex DNF at 73%Small disclaimer Science Fiction isn t my thing I read it occasionally, and am trying to readof it, but 9 times out of 10 it doesn t grab me in the same way fantasy paranormal would Most of what I read, I skimmed the writing was completely unengaging which probably has a lot to do with the main character I honestly don t even remember her name that s how much of an impact she made on me and I just put this book down She s a tool used to awaken the Darkons aliens next door in their prison lust Because apparently when they re horny they fight harder and without ceasing I dunno.I just kept picturing the two Darkons Quain and Jerrell running around in this space station, being shot, hand to hand combat, etc all while naked as they were in the room she found them in I don t know why I stuck on that, but I couldn t stop picturing it and not in a good way Quain and Jerrell are fighting and fucking machines That s all they are And they ALPHA Do as they say when they say it Never mind what the female MC I need a name for her damn it wanted Do as you are bid This is probably where it lost me the most though I like alpha men in my books I like erotica I like fantasies of being told what to do in sexual situations What I do not like The men thinking they own a woman because of some interest or one sexual encounter Fuck that.After that it s a bunch of running through a space station to escape and a world that isn t ever fully built this could have easily taken place in contemporary times with all humans in the jungles of South America or something foreign to the main character So, no characterization, no world building, and a standard escape plot Nothing to keep me wanting to read, that s for sure

    3.5 stars Overall, I enjoyed this and I will be checking outof S.E s work The world she creates in this sci fi erotic short is interesting and I would definitely like to knowabout it I didn t have time to connect with the characters, and I don t feel there was enough story here to fully develop them, but I did sympathize with them and I liked them.The writing felt disjointed, with sentences phrased oddly and words thrown in that felt out of place However, that could be because S 3.5 stars Overall, I enjoyed this and I will be checking outof S.E s work The world she creates in this sci fi erotic short is interesting and I would definitely like to knowabout it I didn t have time to connect with the characters, and I don t feel there was enough story here to fully develop them, but I did sympathize with them and I liked them.The writing felt disjointed, with sentences phrased oddly and words thrown in that felt out of place However, that could be because S.E is an Australian author and perhaps the writing style is different in Australia So please, take that comment with a dash of salt There were a few very few grammar issues, but I read the advanced copy which may not have been fully edited at the time On a stylistic level, parts of the story felt rushed, and many of the transitions between scenes were rough I would have loved for this to be a full length novella at maybe three times the length where we readers could become fully vested in the story and the characters Both were interesting enough story and characters that I feel it would make an excellent longer novella Due to some explicit content, I would recommend this for adults only

    I really liked the Legend Beyond the Stars and was looking forward to visiting the same world again This story was much shorter and thus had less time to develop the relationship between the main characters which made for a less intense story because I simply didn t feel for the heroine and the love interests were a bit on the wooden side and not in the good way.I was also hoping to learnabout the world and the life of this fascinating warrior men which didn t happen,I think if I really liked the Legend Beyond the Stars and was looking forward to visiting the same world again This story was much shorter and thus had less time to develop the relationship between the main characters which made for a less intense story because I simply didn t feel for the heroine and the love interests were a bit on the wooden side and not in the good way.I was also hoping to learnabout the world and the life of this fascinating warrior men which didn t happen,I think if I had read this story first I d give it an extra star but having had high expectations after Legend, I felt a little let down Still worth a read at the price I m going to wait for the next full length novel and hope it that it s just a matter of sizeI received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
