In the hyperconnected and artificial-intelligence-enhanced future, sex is like a cyberpunk video game: a realm where no desire is left unexplored, and even the unimaginable is possible.
I love new technology but don't normally read erotic titles, however there was something about the description and the science fiction tie in that attracted me to this title. The amazon sample confirmed it, this was a book which I had to read and I am pleased to say I wasn't disappointed.
The description states clearly that this story takes place in Sean Platt's and Johnny Truant's Beam world. Not having read any of the Beam titles I chose to read The Beam: Season One first and whilst not strictly necessary it did give me a better understanding of the backdrop against which the story took place.
I enjoyed this story immensely, it felt fresh and original but similar to a pilot for a Tv-series it ended with a cliff hanger. It was a quick read and the first of a series. Given the books each contain only 62 pages each I would have preferred a longer book containing more episodes.
What I don't like is the sales model, publishing a book in parts (or episodes) and bundling later into complete books (or seasons). The Future of Sex is published in 4 parts.
(Review copy gratefully received from publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.)
Highly recommended as a quick read.
