“Juno Colony is a deathtrap, a roach motel for men. Women rule and men have no rights. That’s where they’ve taken Steve.”
The year is 2040 and Earth has established colonies all over the solar system. The International Space Alliance is tasked with keeping peace throughout, and the ISA’s flagship, Phoenix, is the ultimate power in the solar system. Her mission is both exploratory and military deterrent. But when Captain Jason Armstrong discovers his surrogate son has been kidnapped and taken to the infamous Juno Colony on Luna, he’ll stop at nothing to get him back.
When I read the blurb on this book, I wondered if it could really be pulled off. I knew instantly I had to read it and see.
I’m not much for the cover, but don’t let that fool you into thinking the inside is less than five star material.
Gynocracy is fantastic. The character development is amazing.
I was pleasantly surprised to see there was a history connecting most of the main characters. Things that came out as the current story went along.
You weren’t just dumped in a book with random people who connect as the story progressed.
The characters were like a tight knit family, making the story that much more believable. You could actually see them doing what was necessary to rescue one of their own.
I found myself easily liking the characters and feeling proud of them for their actions and even a little choked up at the end.
It’s not often (ever?) where I find it difficult to pick one character above all others. I had ten to choose from and honestly they were all so great I never had a favourite.
I was routing for all of the good “guys.”
Though I have to say Vinny was just so out there that you can’t help but find him amusing. He provided some great moments.
One thing did grab me near the end. If women are so superior in this colony, why are there some working minimal wage behind the counter serving jobs? [Pizza]
Granted I know there are only so many men but it made me a bit curious.
What I think impressed me most about Gynocracy however was though it referenced bdsm and fetish clothing/accessories, it didn’t feel the need to bring sex into the book.
The bdsm references are also not dark or disturbing.
With the exception of one (light also non disturbing) scene there is not very much of it. Making Gynocracy readable for those with no interest in bdsm and for the faint of heart.
Though, they do need to get past the cover.
It’s not trying to be a variation of fifty shades. (A huge thank you to the author for that)
The story holds it’s own very well.
This book has a lot to offer a reader, great characters, a solid story line, action, moments that will make you question sincerity, hold your breath, roll your eyes, laugh out loud and wish for more.
I can definitely see myself reading Gynocracy again. Loving it as much if not more than the first time.
