I am excited to tell you about another book written by a NaNoWriMo writer! I met Delia through the NaNoWriMo writing buddies program and got to watch her word count sore last November. It is very inspirational to see someone make their dream come true.
Let me also say that I did receive a copy of Femme free during a launch day giveaway that Delia had, but I told her that my review would have to be completely honest. Of course she had no concern when I told her that, and after reading the book I know why.
Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:
A science fantasy with a touch of romance.
A utopian world with a touch of slavery.
Kaley Blackburn is sent to Femme in her final year of Future Tech studies. The world is a socialist utopia of low crime, great health and advancements in technology that leave other worlds envious.
It is a fantastic place to visit if you’re a woman. Men, on the other hand, are the slaves that tend to all feminine desires. Kaley knew about the world’s culture of slavery but never had to face it until she is assigned a slave, Mecca, for the duration of her stay.
Mecca is handsome, intelligent and obedient, but every answer he gives to Kaley’s questions only feed her growing concerns. Does Femme hide an ugly truth beneath its beautiful surface and can she trust her feelings for a man whose sole duty is to make her feel special?
Femme is a wonderful, original and entertaining story. The main pov character is Kaley Blackburn. You quickly find out that she is a moral character that wants to do the right thing. It is easy to root for her. Being able to relate to Kaley also made it fun to learn about the world of Femme as she did, through her slave Mecca.
Delia offers some good twists to the story and the supporting cast is littered with other interesting characters that you want to learn about.
This book is subtitled: A Wanderer Of Worlds Novel. When you find out what that means, you immediately want to learn more. Delia will definitely have to write more about these characters, and you will have to get into line behind me to get them.
Over all, Femme was fun to read and left me wanting more. I recommend this book to any fans of Science Fiction or Fantasy. If you give it a chance you will not regret your decision.
Until next time…
