"When Captain Alena Hyde is captured by an alien, she\'s not sure she wants to be rescued."
Captain Alena Hyde is on a mission of mercy to Serak V when
a solar storm forces her ship to make a crash landing on
the planet. The survivors of the plague on Serak V have
their own ideas on how to repopulate their world. They
claim the women of the ship for their own. Alena is going
to take part in her mission of mercy in a way she never
expected. In a way that she doesn't want to.
Breeders is a short novella by India Masters. We
know that we're firmly in a science fiction world when the
leader of Serak V, Commander Griel Ruzak, reveals himself
to Alena. He's chosen her for his own, and he sets about
claiming her with his two penises. Alena protests that she
wants nothing to do with him, but his strength and raw
sexuality awaken emotions in the woman that she didn't know
she had. She tries to resist Ruzak, but his masculinity may
prove too much for her better judgment.
I'm not sure if Breeders will be to everyone's
taste. The sex scenes are very detailed -- they almost have
to be, given the unique physiology of the men of Serak V.
The story is definitely an out of the ordinary abduction
fantasy, centering on whether Alena will stick to her high
principles or give into the desires that Ruzak awakens in
The issue of consent is a little on the fuzzy side. But for
people who don't mind some dominance in their fantasies,
Breeders presents a very imaginative world with a
very erotic alpha male not afraid to take what he wants and
claim her for his own.
