If you are looking for an interesting sci-fi story, then this is it. But it smacks slightly of Jaid Black trying to be more of a sci-fi and less of an erotica writer. (I always get sucked in by the cover, what's a person to do?) I read this in one sitting. It's short so you don't get alot of bang for the buck and the erotic stuff is limited until the end when she turns it into a love story. Not exactly what I was looking for but still worth a read if you can get it here. This is not the caliber of her other Trek books. It's different.

Commander Alexandria Frazier and her crew were on a outer space mission for 2 years. When they come back to earth they know that while it has only been 2 years for them it has been 1500 years on earth. They expect things to be different. When they land on earth they arrive in the year 1.000.007. The human race no longer exists and they are greeted by humanoids. The Takuri are female warriors who dominate the males. They are in constant fight for survival with the Xani which is a male dominated race of mutants.
The Takuri believe that Alexandria is their priestess and that she is the solution to bring peace. While touring the Temple Alexandria is kidnapped by the Xani.
Malik is the leader of the Xani and he tries to break Alexandria, who is strong and whose mind cannot be controlled. The Xani race have their own prophecy about Alexandria but they do not know if it's good for them or bad.
While working on breaking Alexandria down Malik falls in love with her. Alexandria does not care for his rude and dominat behavior but she also sees his gentle side and falls in love with him.

This is a pretty dark but fascinating story. [close]

It was okay until about page 242 when it became impossibly stupid (I'm not going to say how because some may decide to ignore this warning and read it anyway, in which case I would hate to spoil the "surprising twist"). I almost set the book down then and there and didn't pick it back up, but then I decided to (laughingly) read the last 22 pages to see if somehow the stupidness was resolved. It wasn't, not to my satisfaction anyway. Definitely wouldn't recommend this to others. It wasn't even that hot, unless you are into naked chicks running around all the time, which I'm not.

From the cover:

Welcome to earth in the year 100,000,007 A.D. Prepare to scream.

All I can really say is: That was different....
Quick read, but it leaves you feeling like it could have gone further then what it did. I will not give anything away to this story but if you like books that are explict in wording then you will be ok with this one too.
