Technology student Kaley Blackburn is granted the honour of being sent to the futuristic world of Femme to enhance her studies with a group of female Earth students. Femme world outwardly appears very advanced in technology, but socially is emotionally cold and backward, due to the oppression of the entire male population into slavery. There is a lack of familial recognition among the inhabitants.
Kaley is assigned a slave to facilitate her integration into this strange but beautiful world. Mecca’s only job is to cater to the every whim of his mistress.
The book cover is absolutely stunning and captured my attention immediately. Unfortunately I wasn’t immediately drawn to the beginning of the book, where Kaley is waiting in a transport station for her portal to the planet. I think the lack of emotional connection with the Femme characters is intentional, but makes for a bland read. The story improves markedly as soon as Kaley is assigned a handsome slave who is selected to cater to her every whim and guide her during her 6 week stay.
It develops into a smashing read and I definitely encourage you to give this series a try. I can't divulge the best twist in the book, but trust me, it's a good one. Great book from a new sci-fi writer.
Recommended for fans of sci-fi romance novels from young adult upwards. I was given an ebook in exchange for an honest opinion and I enjoyed it so much, I bought an autographed paperback.
