BLURB: Years ago a group known as the Terrans left Earth in search of a life free of persecution. Now they live alongside the Tlic, an alien race who face extinction; their only chance of survival is to plant their larvae inside the bodies of the humans.
When Gan, a young, boy, is chosen as a carrier of Tlic eggs, he faces an impossible dilemma: can he really help the species he has grown up with, even if it means sacrificing his own life?
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Esta es una novellete altamente perturbadora.
Humanos huyendo de su planeta llegan a uno con una civilización de centipedos gigantes de 3 metros y bueno ... imaginen alien renegociado y con mpreg con niños.
Power imbalance is nasty.
