I was provided a copy of Torn (Life Tree – Master Trooper #1) in exchange for an honest review for a blog tour. In Torn, we meet Larona who has been sentenced to serve a life sentence of hard labor, on Mars. In the new regime on Earth under the UG - United Governments; once you are convicted of a crime, you lose your civil rights, and become property of the UG to do with as they please. Pretty good deterrent not to commit crime if you ask me! Instead of being taken to Mars, she winds up on planet Terra Alpha, in the Hands of Life Tree, put in their INBREED program. What does that mean for her? Well, she is to become the broodmare for the genetically modified super soldiers, or Master Troopers, as they are called.

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.

Alexa Kim has written a futuristic tale with primal alpha males and fascinating world building, bringing us genetic engineering and life manipulation.

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.

In Alexa Kim’s 2354 Earth is not the planet we know. Natural resources have been depleted. Oxygen comes from artificial oxygen plants. Criminals are sentenced harsh punishments at a convict colony on Mars where they will spend the rest of their limited days as miners. Larona finds herself on one of those transport ships after her significant other frames her for his crimes. It doesn’t take long for her and the others aboard the ship to realize that they are most certainly not approaching Mars. Upon landing things escalate quickly as they are subdued by the largest soldiers they have ever seen. This is Larona’s first but certainly not her last contact with a Master Trooper.

The United Governments has a top secret research facility on planet Terra Alpha. This is where project Life Tree has been attempting to create the perfect super soldier. They have their Master Troopers. These men have been created with predator DNA. The have been shaped by Life Tree to take orders and never ask questions. They have been given strict rules that they live by to survive. The Master Troopers have been given women as part of a genetic reproduction phase called INBREED. The Master Trooper who is given a woman has one simple task, impregnate her.

And this is why you don’t screw with genetics. Nothing is ever perfect. Sometimes nature takes over and runs thing the way it sees best. Larona sees her will to reproduce taken away from her when she is sent to Torn’s home. She sees there is only one option to free herself from the monster before her. She attempts to end her own life. Torn wants nothing more than Larona, preferably a Larona that is not petrified of him.
