Spoiler alert: If you haven't read the first book of this series, there's no way to review this installment without revealing key developments of the previous volume. Having been sold by their captors to the Kríe king, Alec and his team have to adjust to life in the palace as “pets” of King Zercy, who has taken a special liking to Alec. The team captain is determined to fend off the king's advances while holding out hope of a rescue party reaching them.
Alec is leading a scientific team to explore a newly discovered planet, but things go wrong before they can even land when their ship is attached by flying creatures who force them to crash. The team's luck seems to change when they encounter one of the humanoid natives, Gesh, who seems friendly enough. That is, until Gesh feeds them some delicious fruit that has some strong aphrodisiac effects. Before they know it, the team finds themselves hostages of Gesh and his friends, who assure the earth men that the fruit's effects won't end until the men have sex Gesh or his friends.
