Blog Tour: Womb of the New World by Mira Noire

I received a copy of Womb of the New World in exchange for my review.

Yoevin is a cyborg, one of the beings that changed because of the radiation left in the world after the war between humans. The cyborg kind are dying and so Yoevin is constantly on the hunt for a human woman that is able to produce a cyborg child. Imogenne has spent her life underground, living away from the cyborgs that they call Wroks, but there's something missing for her, and when she demands to go above on a hunting trip she gets caught. At first Yoevin is prepared to treat her like any other captive woman...but it soon becomes clear that he can't do that, and that Imogenne is special for him...

I'm going to start by saying that this is definitely not everybody's cup of tea. I chose to read this book because of how widely outside of everything I've read it is and every now and again I like to do that.

The main thing you need to be warned about is the sex content (though I don't think its actually any different from alien sex scenes that you get in some sci-fi books, except that there is more of it). Because the characters are a cyborg and an 'evolved' human, there are some parts which don't work the same and some descriptions that just make you go 'What??? How's that work?' (Namely looking at a womb feeling like lots of tiny mouths there...still not sure about that one).

If you read the sex scenes as part of the story, like I did, and don't just read it for the them, then there is a story there and it does all kind of slot into place. In a strange way it is almost like a soul mate kind of thing, and finding the right person for the characters, even if that is primarily a physical thing. There was also the quest for the race to carry on and to evolve, making it all fit together.

The book shifted point of view between Yoevin and Imogenne, which could have been done in a clearer way, but I thought that it worked none the less. Seeing both of their points of view made it less like slave-sex for a start (because Imogenne wanted it too), but also meant that a softer side to Yoevin was seen.

This was an interesting book, definitely different from anything I've read before, but it was well written and the plot line was intriguing.

Synopsis: In a post-nuclear future, the lush pleasure cyborgs of Earth have become powerful, fearsome mutants known as Wroks who rule the wild, desolate Fallout landscape. The Wroks and their leader, Yoevin, desperately hunt for a female capable of mothering a cyborg's child. As the years pass, they struggle while fighting to hold on to the intelligence and humanity granted by their makers centuries ago.

Hidden deep in caverns below, Imogenne and her people survive by cultivating the earth, making rare forays above ground for supplies and fresh resources. But Imogenne is not like the rest of her people. She is wild, sensual, and strangely independent -- like her mother, who disappeared years ago in a Wrok attack. On the verge of being betrothed to a man she does not love and facing the rest of her life underground without adventure or freedom, she is haunted by darkly erotic visions that promise something more beyond the world -- and biology -- she knows.

When she is captured in a night Wrok raid, Imogenne hopes to escape her new masters and survive by her wits. But she then discovers a horrifying truth: Her body has a will of its own, one that may very well leave her no choice but to become a mother of the New World.</ span>
