Overview

Tammall, a Zoadiun, is a genetically created and enhanced slave. A general house slave (maid, cook, gardener, etc,) last about fifty years, keeping good youthful looks, approximately mid to late twenties, until the last few years of their life, then rapid aging sets in. It is not pleasant for the slave as it really takes its toll on their body. Generally the owner, a Comp-Terx, has the option of doing the merciful thing and put the slave down rather than letting the slave suffer for their remaining few years.

Personal slaves like Tammall on the other hand, are much different. They are made to last, living two hundred to two hundred and fifty years, and always looking like a teenager. Because of their long life, and great expense, these types of slaves are generally passed down the family line like a valuable asset, sort of like antique jewelry and the like. They accomplished this by preventing them from ever achieving puberty. This means they also do not have to deal with certain women related issues, but it makes it impossible for them to have children either. A side effect of this anti-aging process is that a portion of the brain also remains in the adolescent stage of development, which tends to get Tammall into trouble some times.

As a personal slave, Tammall is pretty much at their owner's beck and call all day and all night. Personal slaves are trained to be very obedient, however, as mentioned before, sometimes the side effects of their altered genetic structure gets them into trouble, which includes the occasional case of disobedience. They also train personal slaves on many forms of pleasure, including sex, with both genders.

This is the first book in the series involving the Zoadiuns and their Comp-Terx Masters.

Meet the Author

I've always been a rather private person, still am in fact. Publishing a book wasn't easy for me, as it meant showcasing myself to anyone who picked up my work. It took me a long time to muster the courage to finally do it. I've always believed that an author's work is a window into their mind, knowing this and being rather self-conscience, I've always been a tad afraid to let anyone have a peek into mine.

Ruling Body has been something I've been working on for a number of years, trying to perfect it and of course, enjoy it. These characters are dear to me, and at the end of it all, seven books in total, I hope others will enjoy the stories, the characters, and their situations.

Once these stories are finished, I plan to settle into another science fiction series I started a number of years ago. We shall see what the future brings.

I bought this after reading the mostly free "Island" series that I really enjoyed. The only negative with this book is the lack editing and spell check. Still, VERY worth reading. Both books would make great movies

This is not the same man that wrote "The Island" series! I read 150 pages before I checked the author's note at the beginning of the book. This writer is from Canada; and the other Michael Stark is from North Carolina. Frankly, this book is aweful. There is much too much unnecessary conversation. And it doesn't make any sense. Besides the beatings and sickening devotion of the slave narrator, which is bad enough, this book makes me feel absolutely nothing. Don't waste your money or your time. To the author, better luck next time.

I loved the characters nearly immediately. I was frustrated by some, and my heart ached for others.... read the book and you will understand what I mean! Sometimes, life just isn't fair!

After reading "The island" series, by Michael Stark, I expected an interesting exploration of some of the social issues associated with slavery. Instead what i got was 900 pages of soft core bondage & Sado/masochism. I found this novel to be repetitve, uninteresting & very disappointing. A complete waste of money.

book was okay, just went on and on, apparently the author gets off on people being spanked, it was pretty boring.

I really enjoyed Michael Stark's The Island series and while waiting for the next installments decided to read some of his other works. This book was definitely not as good as the Island series and I couldn't get into the voice of the character as well, but it made for some interesting pondering on the concept of slavery based on race. I will read the next in the series, No Rest for the Angel, to see if I like it any better.
