I really enjoyed this story. It was as if Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Rod Serling sat down and wrote a short story together. I could see this as being a very good series.
The exchange of dialogue between Nigel and Montague was humorous and well written.
I can't wait to read more from TK Wade.
I found this to be a very compelling read from beginning to end. The author combined the perfect amount of erotic fantasy and science fiction to tell a very interesting story of a planet besieged by a race of female clones.
The characters were well thought out and very real. I particularly like the character Nefarious Good, a Mystic swordsman with a melodious voice. The races of people in the story were very imaginative.
The combat was well written and described in perfect detail, making it flow and feel natural. I also liked the overall predator/prey theme with the Tetrans and Concubines.
Once I started reading this story I couldn’t put it down I had to see it to the end. The Main antagonist was very well thought out and he just got under my skin. The authors Predator / prey theme was well kept with a few unexpected twists. The erotic aspects of the story mixed well and did not dilute the overall suspense. I particularly liked the Verdian characters; they felt real and were very imaginative at the same time. The tale was well spun and ended with a grand conclusion.
I found this to be a spectacular and fun tale. It was a nice compliment to the first Imaginist story. The Victorian era dialogue was very well written. Montague has become my favorite character, I spent most of the time in anticipation of what he was going to do or say next. Serious situations were well mixed with lighthearted humor to spin a very enjoyable tale.
I can't wait for the next Imaginist story.
