The Master Troopers have been modified with predator DNA, which means when mating or defending territory, they act more aggressive and animal like. They have a super charged sex drive, and seem to use sex to help regulate their moods. Like most men; when they don’t get laid, they tend to get a bit tense and grumpy, multiply that by 1,000 for these soldiers. Torn is the Master Trooper that Larona is assigned to; during his two-month vacation, his sole purpose is to knock her up.
As you can imagine, Larona is utterly terrified! She has been paired with a huge beast of a man/part predator! Oh holly hell! Larona isn’t strong or aggressively independent, like my preferred female leads. She’s pretty meek and submissive; however, this is merited for her survival. Torn’s super alpha personality and predator tendencies, would have dangerously clashed with a dominate woman. Torn was crazily possessive and protective of Larona right from the start; I really liked that about him. Eventually, his feelings grow for her, causing him to question himself, everything he has been taught, and everything he knows in his life as a Master Trooper.
Torn was a quick read, and I really enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to reading more of this series. I really enjoy this type of novel; I get teased about it, but I don’t care!...Sara
Wow! I was not expecting to enjoy this story as much as I do, but I did. I was concerned I would not enjoy the book as much and have issues with the German to English translation. Nothing to worry about there. The translation, while not flawless, is excellent. There are a few points in the text where it could have been translated / edited a little better, but overall nothing to be concerned about or to throw the reader out of the story while reading.
I don't even know where to begin to point out all the things I loved about this story. On the surface it's a simple tale of genetically engineered males finding their mates, but beyond that, there is a society of men bred for war, who have never known anything else other than the life they have been given, while being controlled by rules, confined to certain parts of the planet and manipulated for a larger, greedier organization bent on creating the super soldier. These men are bred, live and breathe the rules they are given to live within until a single female comes along and tells them life is different on the home planet, where there are choices, where people are given free will and they can live how they please, love who they please and be with them as long as they please. This brings about a sea change in these men, triggered by the love of one Master Trooper for his captive girl of the moment, who has been award to him as a prize for good behavior and performance but turns out to be so much more.
Torn is your super soldier, bred and trained for war, with super everything. He's bigger than most men, stronger, faster, more lethal. He's also a dominant, controlling alpha male and I love that in a hero. He's basic and primal. He takes what he wants, he conquers and dominates, but with Larona at least, he is able to curb some of his baser, more primitive instincts to help her trust him and develop feelings for him. I love that he's possessive and protective and even gets jealous over an old boyfriend who is so far out of his reach to pulverize when Larona shares her past with him and he feels the need to right the wrongs wrought upon her. But if I had to point to one thing which blew me away about this story, it would be how incredibly alpha Torn is.
Larona starts off utterly terrified of Torn. I'm surprised by the degree of her terror, which seems somewhat out of proportion to the situation to the extent that she attempts suicide. As she gets to know Torn, her fear is replaced by desire. This is a romance after all. She's your typical submissive heroine. I won't call her weak but she's certainly very helpless in these circumstances, from being sentenced to life on a penal colony of Mars (that gets diverted to Terra Alpha) to being given to Torn and then being taken away from him again. She has very few choices left to her and very little way of protecting herself, very much a damsel in distress who needs rescuing. Fortunately, Torn is up to the task.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and I am looking forward to Crow's story in book 2 coming soon. I saw on Ms Kim's Facebook page that it's currently being translated.
