When Serena awakes, after a close and unpleasant encounter with some sort of stun gun, she very quickly learns that resistance is futile and escape only a yearned for dream. She, and the other Earth women Serena meets aboard ship with her, have been captured by the Moyds, interstellar merchants ..their mission, to procure fertile wives for the men of Volarn, where their race is endangered due to the wide-spread sterility of their own women. Learning this is at least some relief to the captured women, but Serena is disgusted to realize that they are nothing in these men's eyes but baby makers. Regardless, she knows she has no choice but to face the fate that awaits her with as much dignity as she can muster. Once they arrive on Volarn, Serena learns that her assessment has not been entirely accurate. Using their power crystals in the Tarthra Ritual, the warriors approach the women with their crystals to find the mate most suited to them..a woman to love who can love them. Serena is chosen to become King Rhamus' queen, but, just as she feels herself weakening to Rhamus' romantic, passionate nature, Rhamus' enemy, Xarath, abducts her. Rating: Contains explicit sex, graphic language and some violence.
I read this series out of order, but it didn't feel like I missed anything. Myra writes some of the most compelling sci-fi stories I've read in a long time. The worlds are amazing and the characters just as so. A true Science Fiction Romance, I loved this story of abduction and love. Serena and King Rhamus were strong characters and this story was very very good.
Serena who didn't care for Rhamus in the beginning of this story was an enjoyment to read. She was combative, but as the story progressed, she came to enjoy the king and her surroundings. I adored King Rhamus and I loved the fact that Myra didn't make him like this crazy kind of alien who just took what he wanted. He was patient and respectful..I really like that.
So pick this book up, its a wonderful read. And if you enjoy a good sci-fi fantasy read with lots of kick ass action and mind blowing sex...then this book is for you.
