The Chalice

P L Parker has created a terrific futuristic romance novel that has sparks of laughter, camaraderie, and good sex scenes even though she uses idioms to describe male and female genitals. The book also has two thrilling battle scenes where human females and alien men fight together against an enemy who want to annihilate anyone who stands in their way. The pacing in this book is like a runaway freight train that picks up speed, goes fast, and does not end until the story is finished! I also like the secondary characters in this book; some are stiff, others are funny, while other characters are shy.

200 years in the future—Young, orphan Earth women in their 20’s wake up in stasis tubes aboard a spaceship. They have been kidnapped by aliens and been told they are going to be breeders to a dying species of males who think the women have agreed to be their mates. The alien males come in 2 castes: warriors and artisans. Warriors are tall and muscular men. Their counterparts, on the other hand, are shorter then warriors and have lithe bodies. However, all the male aliens have 3 things in common; they have long white hair, silver eyes, and fangs!

One of the women on the ship Kara.

She is named Queen by the other women that were in stasis with her. Teagan is King over the male aliens. He and Kara negotiate together to figure out what is going to happen to both races. Teagan thinks Kara has splendid boobs, since females of his race only have breasts when she is nurturing a baby, and an intelligent mind. Kara loves looking at Teagan’s muscular body. Will Kara wait for Teagan to make a “move” or will she be the one who does it?
