Alien Conquest based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Alien Conquest is the third book in the World of Kalquor series, and by now, if you've read books one and two, you realise that nothing is as straightforward as you might think. Dubcon is a thing in these books, so if that makes you uncomfortable, then please don't read them! The Kalquorian females have been decimated with a virus that either killed them outright, or made them infertile. They need to figure out a way to survive. Earth females are a match made in heaven... except they have been repressed and subjugated, seeing their own bodies as devil flesh, and the act of love as sin. Between the Kalquorians wanting to revere them, and their own state of mind (which sometimes does involve being brainwashed), then you can understand the dubcon. They have procedures that psychiatrists/psychologists have come up with, so they follow them. HOWEVER, if you read the story, you will see that Degorsk follows protocol but quickly starts to question whether this is the right way to go. He makes adjustments to what he has been told, and sees better results. He makes those adjustments to their Matara, and also sees a change. Nothing is as black and white as you presume, but once again, if dubcon isn't your thing, then please don't read it! Personally, I thoroughly enjoy these books. They are well written, with a smooth plot, steady pacing, and no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. They make no apologies for who they are, and give a thoroughly detailed and intricate view on the life of Kalquorians, with their distinct castes/personalities. Definitely recommended by me!

This was a good read, I liked Cassidy's quick mind and I loved the interaction of Clan Tranis, between each other and between Cassidy. Anyone who loved this should check out the companion, Sister Katherine and the Clan Beginnings book featuring Clan Tranis, To Clan and Conquer.
I loved this book the first time I read it and now after reading the re-edited/re-issued version I love it even more.
