#BookReview – ‘His Human Slave’ by Renee Rose


Collared and caged, his human slave awaits her training.

Zander, the alien warrior prince intent on recovering his planet, needs a mate. While he would never choose a human of his own accord, his physician's gene-matching program selected Lamira's DNA as the best possible match with his own. Now he must teach the beautiful slave to yield to his will, accept his discipline and learn to serve him as her one true master.

Lamira has hidden her claircognizance from the Ocretions, as aberrant traits in human slaves are punished by death. When she's bought by a Zandian prince for breeding and kept by his side at all times, she finds it increasingly harder to hide. His humiliating punishments and dominance awake a powerful lust in her, which he tracks with a monitoring device on her arousal rate. But when she begins to care for the huge, demanding alien, she must choose between preserving her own life and revealing her secret to save his.


In book one of the Zandian Masters series, Prince Zander only wants to build an army and retake his planet from the evil Finn, but his council demands he produce offspring before he starts a war. Years earlier, the Finn had massacred Zander’s people, including his parents, and took over the planet. Only a few hundred Zandians are still alive. As the youngest surviving member of his species, he’s the best candidate to produce healthy children, so the council chooses the best compatible female for him—a human slave girl.
Lamira and her mother work on a farm and do their best to steer clear of the guards and masters that oversee them. They have a secret that could get them killed, and Lamira will do everything she can to protect that secret. After she’s bought and sent to Zander as his sex slave and breeder, she soon learns pleasure and pain at the hands of her new master.
I couldn’t really connect with either Lamira or Zander.
Lamira was strong and proud at first, but became subservient very fast. After she lost her virginity to rape, she started craving sex. She had a serious case of Stockholm syndrome and easily forgave her master no matter how horrible the beatings because she believed he cared about her. Though the abuse both humiliated and hurt her, it also aroused her, so most beatings ended in sex.
Zander did care for Lamira, but he didn’t trust her and would often lock her in a small cage. His reasoning behind some of the abuse made sense (this is a master/slave romance, after all), but his anger and lack of compassion for someone he’d supposedly grown to love was shocking.
There are tons of sex scenes and most of them were pretty hot. Some, however, were just too violent for my tastes. I’m usually a big fan of erotic BDSM stories, but not those with non-consensual acts.
There are some minor punctuation errors, but I enjoyed Ms. Rose’s writing style and voice. Overall, the plot is exciting and intriguing, but the degradation was just too much for me.
3 Stars
