Clans of Kalquor 5. Dani Watson is a sex slave on the planet of Dantovon. Having escaped post-Armageddon Earth, she’s resigned to spending several years working in a brothel to pay off her slave contract. Her one consolation is that she avoided being captured and enslaved by the Kalquorians. When a Kalquorian clan buys her contract, Dani attempts escape. Crashing on a remote moon puts her life in jeopardy, leaving her and the clan of Gelan, Wynhod, and Krijero fighting for survival in a hostile environment. Worse still, they’re being hunted by a group of brutal Tragooms who are determined to capture Dani and subject her to a fate worse than mere slavery.
Alien Slave is a captivating, futuristic, erotic romance story. If you like science fiction, fantasy, and lots of hot alien sex, this story has it all.
As a reader, it was easy to connect with the characters. I found myself really enjoying their differences and similarities. In the beginning, the feeling you get is that the Kalquorians are so different from Earthers they couldn’t possibly be compatible. As the story progresses and the character’s pasts are revealed, it’s hard not to see that love, belonging, and feeling protected are universal things needed by all.
Dani is a young heroine that came from a privileged background. She’s made a lot of mistakes along the way trying to survive and find her own way. She shows strength and courage while still remaining vulnerable. Dani is one messed up heroine that was fun to read.
The three heroes, Gelan, Wynhod, and Krijero all have something unique to bring to the relationship that evolves between the four. It was a pleasure getting to know them as individuals and how they worked as a clan. Tracy St. John does not leave the reader wanting for an alpha male. She provided three fantastic specimens.
This is a very imaginative and descriptive story where the author has created different worlds and beings. I found it a little hard in the beginning to follow the naming of the Kalquorians. It took a while to realize that the first part of the name is actually their job description. The excerpt and cover drew me to this book, but I didn’t realize that it is number five in a series. Alien Slave reads fine as a standalone book, but I’m betting there is some back story to be had in the other books. It just makes me want to pick those up now too.
