The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of Torn
I was fascinated by the concept presented to me. I approached this book in a different way. I wanted to consume the context but also the words behind the words. With this being a translation from one language to English I was almost afraid that the meaning in the words would be altered in some way that would take away from the pleasure of the work presented. 

I have most certainly gotten a hot sci-fi/fantasy romance read. There is a new futuristic take on Earth and its new laws for criminals. This is a immersing journey into a breeding program of another super alpha race. There is no doubt in my mind that with there traits there are women that would happily sign up for this program without committing a crime. I am not one to give away the details. I will say this read it and find a new world/new take on a world that will scorch the sheets.  I different and LOVE different. 5stars, yes in deed. 

I have to say that I would really like to read more from this series. I have had my taste. Now, I want a full meal.

Anno 2354. Earth’s government had a breakthrough in their top secret research project Life Tree. They’ve created perfect soldiers whose abilities exceed scientists’ expectations, thanks to the predator sequence in their DNA. Now project Life Tree is entering phase two, genetic reproduction of the Master Trooper.

Betrayed by her boyfriend and sentenced to penal servitude for drug possession, Larona finds herself among several other women en route to the convict colony on Mars. Turns out it’s not Mars they land on, but planet Terra Alpha, where the women are to be part of a research project.

There, Larona is chosen for program INBREED – she’s to bear the child of a Master Trooper. Her body is no longer hers, but a possession of Life Tree. Upon meeting Torn, who seems to have no qualms about carrying out Life Tree’s orders, Larona is absolutely desperate…

Torn has proven himself as above-average in combat and every test. That’s why he was chosen for program  INBREED – to pass on his genes – a task others envy him for because it means luxury in between tours: vacation time, good food, and clean women.

Torn never had any reason to doubt Life Tree, and especially INBREED is a duty he enjoys. To him, women just serve to satisfy a bodily need… but it’s different with Larona. When she tries to kill herself, Torn starts to question Life Tree. Because he’s developing feelings for Larona that he, as a Master Trooper, isn’t even supposed to have…
