This was a first for me. I can quite safely say that homoerotic space erotica was not a genre I thought I would ever review. I bought this book in part because of the whole Hugo award 2016 drama but mainly because when I looked up the author on wikipedia the titles of his his books were pure gold. For that alone I was willing to give this book a punt (that is not a euphemism).
Tingle has a very straighforward and to the point style, usually the point of a throbbing member. The only way I can describe it is as a short scene from an adult movie in written form. The characters and scene are set and then the erotica begins, and usually climaxes (pun intended) in a loud and messy fashion.
I couldn’t help feeling there was more too it than that. Part of me was thinking that Raptor could be an analogy to a screaming drunk female and the rest of me was wondering if the raptor in question was an anthropomorhic personification of a Velociraptor. The nasty predator that hunts in packs. That lead my mind in to further think what if there was a whole pack of them and not just one.
This story really wasn’t my cup of tea but I enjoyed it and it was something I never thought I’d read much less review. I used the term homoerotica above but I’m not sure that counts between species. This book was all about the erotica with just enough science fiction and story to get you interested.
