Curing Zombies One Sex Act at a Time – “Strain” by @ACGormley #review @RiptideBooks

Book Scorecard


Post apocalyptic, sci-fi erotica at its best. Many books in this genre are less, but “Strain” is more. World/story are fully realized instead of looking like a bad porno set as so many others do.
Fantasy World
Slightly hard to swallow premise. Rewarding if you can accept idea of survival via viral infection by intercourse. Engaging world, great detail.
M/m/m/m/m... action. Gangbang. Forced consent. VERY hot for those who like those sub-genres.
Rhys is a sympathetic underdog. Darius is a genetically engineered super Alpha. Supporting cast is great, especially Xolani. Villain stereotypical but motivations never revealed.
Angst and love fight for supremacy. Neither happy ending nor survival are a forgone conclusion.

Strain” by Amelia C. Gormley is “The Walking Dead” meets “Queer as Folk” and “Universal Soldier”. They all have sex repeatedly to save the world or at least the lives of a few, select young men. “Strain” reads like it started as a story which needed an excuse for a never ending gangbang, but along the way it found its feet. The story took on a life of its own and stepped out from behind the sex. Both benefited and the result is a fabulously entertaining book.

Strain” is priced at $6.99 for 320 pages, and is well worth the cost. Don't start reading it at bedtime, and make sure to have a tissue handy. And lube. Lots and lots of lube.
