Apprentice spacehand Addison has left a prescription behind at the spaceport, but there’s no way to end the hyperspace jump before its time. Without the drugs, startling changes overtake Addison’s body. These changes force Addison to confront hopes and fears, ultimately finding a way to reconcile competing feelings.
Laelia is back in classic form, meaning you’re getting a story with an innovative concept for the BE that occurs, a positive outcome for the female protagonist, and an ending where the worthy guy gets the girl. An important plot point is that the two characters are isolated in a hyperspace jump which cannot end before its programmed time. The apprentice has accidently left prescription drugs behind at the port, and without them begins to change. Addison is forced by these changes to confront fears and hopes long unresolved. Readers should enjoy the holographic sex simulator the captain uses in his cabin, and the BE charged program he favors.
