SONS OF ZEMLYA: RYTHAN’S BECOMING
Rating: 4 Cups
Rythan lives on the planet of Zemlya. He enters the Temple of Destiny in his twentieth year to undergo a sex ritual as old as time. In this ritual he will be transformed into his adult form. He is nervous because there have been a few in his culture who, unable to pass the test required to complete their transformation, have had to remain in their childhood form. He does not want this to happen to him. Because he is not attracted to women, he is also concerned his conductor might be a fem.
Rythan’s conductors Tind and Ze are the adults who will oversee his transformation. Tind has the adult form of a fire brand while Ze’s adult form is of a wind zephyr. These two are as different as night and day. Tind’s form is that of the inner earth and Ze’s the wind. Tind is clearly a dominant, while Ze is a submissive.
When Rythan has mind-blowing sex with both Tind and Ze, he is even more eager to take his adult form. However, as pleasurable as sex is with these two, will his body transform, or will he be stuck in his child’s form forever?
This is a wonderful and imaginative book! Ms. Stone does a great job of building up the suspense; it took me reading most of the book to figure out what was actually going on. The descriptions of life on another world and in another culture were well written. The world building is creative and fun, the sex mind blowing and sensual. Sex is a time-honored way of transformation in many cultures, and Ms. Stone did a great job in illustrating this point.
