Some people will love this one, unfortunately, I didn’t. From the blurb, I anticipated a gritty alien-torture sci-fi with a slow-burn romance. That isn’t what this book is like at all, so be forewarned. It is much more similar to yaoi-style books: Insta-love or close to itforced mating, a top and bottom with defined roles However, I actually like some yaoi books, so I could have adjusted to the change This book will have wildly different ratings depending on the reader.
However, I actually like some yaoi books, so I could have adjusted to the change from my expectations to the reality of the book. My main issue is that this book is very similar in concept and feel to “The Last Pure Human” by Twisted Hilarity http: I’ll try not to compare the stories too much and just analyze this on its own, but it will be a struggle because I compared the two stories often while reading.
I’ll go into some of my biggest problems with this story. For one, I didn’t feel the chemistry between the two MCs. Ryker was way too accepting of Seral, especially considering his history of abuse while in captivity. Ryker seemed to just glide into a healthy relationship and welcome his new role as alien-husband with ease.

I wanted much more emotion, more tension there. I felt like it read really false. I think that even though they had binding marks on their bodies, the romance should have been more slow-burn.
I also had some issues with the world-building. It felt underdone and half-hearted. Except from a few strange fruit and animals, Ryker didn’t seem too surprised at the alien world. He fell into step too easily and I think it was a missed experimetn to add some excitement into the story.
What I really struggled with, though, was the style. It felt a soap opera-ish and I didn’t love the shifting first person POVs. I sometimes love first person POV, but here, it felt like the easy way out.
I felt like I was being told, rather than shown, how the characters were feeling. I also often found myself growing bored and it took some real effort to force myself to finish. Like I said earlier, I think many will really like this book.
It isn’t bad, just not my tastes and not what I was expecting. I think fans of books like Slave Auction by Stormy Glenn will enjoy this story. View all 28 comments. Jan 16, Bookwatcher rated it it was amazing Shelves: The plot In a future, Earth is in war against Ceaorleia Where would be the limit in the human need to conquer another world?
The story begin with Ryker I said it’s original Because let’s face it, it’s hard to find good and original stories! Well, I will not spoil yhe I must say everything, from Ceaprleian’s humming vibrations language, from the alien planet itself, I love experimenh.
Each detail, everything was perfect and VERY original!
The Experiment Audiobook | Alicia Nordwell |
It’s an abuse non consensual sex story? There is kidnapping no? Ghe is no rape scene, and yes, Ryker is traumatized but it’s just some facts, he will remember but never tell you, even when he is the narrator. Even WHEN he is the narrator? There will be more than one point of view? Seral is nogdwell native from the alien planet and will know Ryker in a very unpleasant situation There is something that made me squeeeeee in delight?
He is view from Ryker as something close to Long claws, drinking blood, long fangs, black eyes, pale skin BUT don’t think it’s one of those vampires you read somewhere!
Once a online freebie, now published, it was a delight surprise then and again now rereding the published version, and made me want to read much more! All about this couple and their unusual love A broken man, a wild alien vampire A tziu and his isit I wish Noordwell could give more than 5 stars.
This story is amazing, and I certainly recommend it to all readers searching a sci-fi, but also a very tthe love story. View all 15 comments. Mar 03, ttg rated it really liked it Shelves: Overall I thought The Experiment was a pretty fun sci-fi romance. The story follows human Ryker, whose body is altered by human scientists as part of their war against another alien race.
He is forced to confront who are his real enemies, and also who he is now in this new altered body. Ryker is suffering from severe PTSD from his trauma during his years wxperiment being experimented on. If you dislike non-con and torture like me, know that The Experiment is not too graphic, and much of the focus is on his recovery and adjustment to his new world and to his new alien husband.
In this way, the book reminded me of the movie Avatar since it shared some similar traits of entering into and falling in love with an nofdwell world, and how the world you are from may actually be the enemy to watch out expegiment. Although there were clothes being torn off with claws literally before some sexy times.
If you norewell adverse to that school of characters, you may have a harder time with this story. Even as Ryker grows stronger, and faces his fears after his trauma, the dynamic follows that yaoi-esque path. For readers who hate cliffhangers like meplease know that the ending here is satisfying, so even if more books come out, you will not be left hanging here. This novel was born as a free serial on GayAuthors. Nordwell, under penname Cia, has a bunch of free stories, novellas, and novels on GayAuthors.
Do I recommend this book? Will I read the next book? Yes, I would read the next book. Overall, a nrdwell, intriguing imaginative sci-fi read with a good mix of romance and action and sexy times. Review first posted nordwelp Boys in our Books. Feb 01, Lilia Ford rated it liked it Shelves: I found this a fun read, and I’ll probably read the next part if there is one since Nordwell successfully raised my curiosity about late-arriving characters like Dade and Nicklaus.
It’s safe epxeriment say I’m a fan of any and all variations of the alien abduction story, and a downright sucker for the big-tough alpha alien meets meek earth-boy plotline. This was more of an engaging play on the familiar elements of that story rather than an exploration of new territory. Sadly but predictably, our toppy v I found this a fun read, and I’ll probably read the next part if there is one since Nordwell successfully raised my curiosity about late-arriving characters like Dade and Nicklaus.
Sadly but predictably, our toppy vampiric alien turns out to be a big marshmallow, whose dominance consists of overprotectiveness and a ailcia to devote his life to making his mate happy.
Still, the book was much better written than the average alien abduction story, the plot had enough twists and expfriment to keep me interested, and I liked both MCs–enough to feel happy when they were happy.
The good chemistry and hot manlove scenes were also quite appreciated. I was most dissatisfied with “the experiment” itself, aliciw the account of Ryker’s extreme abuse at the hands of “doctors. The sequence reminded me of Laurann Dohner ‘s New Species series or more recently Sevenwhere you thee these evil scientists who are so monstrous they lose any resemblance to actual human beings and because of that are fundamentally uninteresting as either characters or even social phenomena.
